elev8meL8r: Ugh. FAIL for referencing a "study by the University of Arizona" that actually took place at ASU.

I suggest we disregard the article entirely and concentrate on pictures of nicely rounded women.

/not the 600-lb woman or the chick grimacing as she tries to zip up her pants


I vote we get more pics of cookiefleck...

Helena Handbasket: Yeah, and we naturally "skinny biatches" have listened to you fatties whining at us all our lives, just because we're svelte and athletic.

That said, nobody really wants to look at either of the extremes so why don't you just shove another Twinkie in your piehole and stop whining at women like me just because I'm rockin' a 19% body fat.


Hardly. Obviously the comment about wanting to see "women like us" doesn't refer to women like you who have grown up looking at mirrors of various ethnicities.

I spent most of my adult life at an athletic 6' and 135lbs. I'd hardly call that being a fatty. While I've put on some weight since I stopped working out 5x a week, it hasn't affected my self image or sexuality. I'll admit I look more like one of the Dove models now (and no, not the one on the far right) - and I (and Mr. Diva) like it that way, thank you.

I agree that nobody wants to look at either of the extremes.
That said, I recommend you go choke on your hate (or a carrot).

Fano: jimi32: Fano: By noting how normal a lot of plus sized models are, they realize how close they are to being a fatty fat fat pig.

Just like seeing the dudes in the "husky" section.

I hate to do this....but:

/You do know the husky section

Sure do.

Note that many "plus size" models are built like anna nicole smith BEFORE she got big. What is a woman supposed to think?

Cuz you don't have to deal with all these men issues. They're always walking on eggshells, waiting for us to flip out. And then we have to worry about their feeeeelllingss, and their insecurity, and their fear that they won't get laid unless they do the exact right thing. And then it's "Oh, baby, was it good for you?" like it's a baseball game or something, and we need to produce the stats.

Women keep telling us men that we keep telling them to look like anorexic models. We keep telling them that we just like healthy girls and that a few extra pounds here and there really aren't that big of a deal. So where does this stuff come from? Other women and a one out of every ten thousand guys. Mostly other women though.

NannyStatePark: The average woman wears a size 16. Marylin Monroe was a 12-14. If you are thinner in my part of TX, especially over 30, you are a freaking Barbie doll.

I'm a 12-14 if I buy vintage late 50s-early 60s dresses from eBay. At the store, I'm about a 6. Sorry about your disillusionment.

I agree with whoever said it's the extremes that are kind of a problem. I know women come in in all sizes. I am 2 sizes larger than I was 20 years ago, and it requires effort now. Whatever. I'm good with seeing, oh, 4-14, depending on height, etc. Fitness matters more than size. Below that, well, maybe you're fit, maybe you're hungry. Above that, well, hopefully you're taking care of yourself.

What makes me feel inadequate, if I do, isn't the size, it's the perfect skin and teeth and photoshopped bits. Until I remind myself that none of it is real.

Well that too. A girl I was involved with a while ago asked me what size I thought she was. I had no idea, so I told her exactly that. She said to just guess. I threw out a number (like 6 or something) and she got mad at me because it was way too big. I'm like seriously? I just told you I didn't know what the sizes mean, and you're going to get mad at me? Womyns is crazy.

Here is the trouble with skinny girls.

Bones. And hard places. And sharp poking bits. Plus, they are fragile looking.

There are certain activities that one should engage in enthusiastically. Hard and hot, fast and heavy, a good and proper shagging. Difficult to do that with a skinny girl, out of the fear of breaking her in two or possibly breaking your own penis by slamming it into a bit of pelvic bone or something else. Or you're getting into the wild freaky circus sex and going at it like mad animals and her hip bones are sticking right out of her asscheeks and stabbing you in your hips with every thrust. No thanks. Or mashing your balls against her pelvic bone or hips. YEOUCH. A woman should be soft, well padded, squishy in all the right places, solidly well built, and well able to play rough, no holding back.

Also, when throwing a woman down on the kitchen table and shagging her silly, with every thrust you shouldn't hear her pelvis clattering against the wood of the table, that noise will throw off your rhythm and ruin your ride. It should be a soft well muffled thud, not a loud THUMP THUMP THUMP. The floor as well, pulling her down to the floor for a good shagging should be a pleasurable sort of thing, you shouldn't hear about her whining later that her hip bones are bruised from banging into the floor.

Ask your self this... What is more comfortable to rest upon? A wooden church pew or an overstuffed couch?

And yes, a good and proper shag will do away with almost any sort of issue a woman has about being plus sized. If she starts to worry if something makes her look big, the proper response is to rip said item off of her and jump her bones, saying nothing.

I also wonder if part of the issue is that the women in the pictures are *models*-- you know, they also have unusually pretty faces and unusually nice hair. So size notwithstanding, the women looking at the pictures feel less attractive in comparison. Maybe they need to try the test again with ugly models?

Women: I have a question / theory that I would like for you to examine. I could be wrong, but would love some Farkette input.

My theory: The reason women (in general, I am sure exceptions exist) are so freaked about their appearance is because for a woman, her appearance grants her power. I know that sounds horrible but listen. In a nutshell, this is what I propose: That muscles are to men what looks are to women. Both act as traditional sources of power and status.

When a woman is concerned about her looks, it isn't necessarily to please men or women, but is usually about how her looks impact her social and interpersonal power.

Let's face it, boobs and legs are really powerful.

Mind you, she's no fatty. She's absolutely gorgeous with an hour-glass shape and ginormous proud, jutting breasts that at 36 years old, defy gravity like A-cups on a teenager.
But it's driving me crazy not knowing how much she weighs (mostly her refusal to tell me drives me nuts).
Now then, she is 5'8" and her measurements are: 38-29-38.

jafiwam: Self-esteem for women is like dry ice. The shiat just disappears and evaporates on its own unless it's constantly bolstered, followed around with a noisy and expensive to operate machine. Ignore it and it'll suffocate you in a confined space.

Men, they ride a ratchet of esteem. Heck, I am still riding on some paranoid accusations that turned out to be true 20 years ago (former GF had a room-mate steal her kitten), I was right, that biatch did it. I won a bloody mary making contest... two years ago. farking AWESOME!

If I was a chick, that stuff would have long-evaporated.

Esteem and confidence in a woman, that's like the godddamn defense department sucking up money from the taxpayers. It never stops, what it creates quickly breaks, and what works for a while is used to destroy others.

pffft. It's too bad they got all the vayjay and boobies or I'd have nothing to do with them. (Moobs and brown-starfish don't count you pervs.)
