megarian: Oldiron_79: Dear womens, you will not turn into she hulk if you so much as look at a weight. Weight training is the best way to not have saggy arms

Madonna does a crap-ton of weight lifting.

And apparently she's the one with the Bingo Wings.

Some people will have those kind of arms no matter what they do.

I don't think she has Bingo Wings. But she may have transformed into a man in the past decade... So there's that.


Um, yeah, the last person on earth who needs skinnier or more toned arms is Madonna. Already scary/manly enough looking thanks. Weight lifting for women is great and a fabulous way to lose fat while staying shapely, but getting way too lean will make any woman look...unfortunate.

Spiralmonkey: TheOther: Spiralmonkey: We all age (if we're lucky enough to live that long) and we all will get wrinkles, saggy bits, and assorted weirdnesses. We need to stop letting marketing companies tell us this is wrong or some sort of illness.

We all poop, too. That doesn't mean random strangers on the street should have to witness it.

If you have a problem with how someone else looks that's your problem. Don't expect other people to dress to suit you. If you really are about to have a fit of the vapours when confronted with someone who isn't a perfect Abercrombie & Fitch model then I suggest you looks away. Better still, stay home and avoid all danger.


You sound fat.

cryinoutloud: And past a certain age--you get them. It's called "getting older."


A lot of this sort of anxiety is that we have changed our society. Go back 100+ years and women in their 40s were either already dead or had a grown family they were trying to marry off, or starting to look after grandchildren. They weren't going out and trying to sell themselves sexually (and that's what this is, bluntly speaking).

I'm not saying that it's wrong how society has changed. I think it's good that women have the freedoms today that they didn't have, but all of this is a consequence of that.

I love hop you can't possibly read that article without hearing it in your head with a Brit accent. Also, I love how practical they are. When somehting seems like an unneccessary expense, I tend to think of it in terms of how much beer said money would buy. Then I read this in the comments...

One of the best things I ever did was stop buying women's magazines. Why pay the cost of a pint for someone to make you feel bad about yourself? 

Delicious!

I prefer the term "speed-bag arm fat" to "bingo wings".

Bingo wings are better then having to wear tube sox instead of a bra.

At the gym I went to a few years ago, there was a big row of tvs in front of the treadmills and each one was set to a different station. Fox news always seemed to have commercials for this sort of thing. The one that caught my attention wasn't "control sleeves" but it was some sort of clear plastic tape stuff to tape up the arm flab. I remember thinking it was funny that I was watching ads for that type of shiat while at the gym.

Anyway, a lot of women who have arm (or other) flab they want to lose tend to stay away from the weights because they think they need to do a bunch of cardio to burn the calories before starting a weight program. Shockingly enough, everyone I have known in this category has never lost the weight they think they need to lose before starting to use weights. Weights are your friends. 

Also I've never really understood the point of this because one benefit of exercise is that you will look better naked, and it seems like false advertisement to tape up the flab, only to let it all out at some point. If you've got flab you've got flab - let it fly or firm it up.

mbillips: Egalitarian: what the hell are bingo wings?
also, I have seen obese women with huge curtains hanging off their upper arms. In some cultures that's considered sexy. Madonna would be considered pathetic.

Name one culture where that's sexy.


I believe there's some of this going on in South America but this is the first thing I came up with:

Mauritania struggles with love of fat women


In Mauritania, to make a girl big and plump, 'gavage' - a borrowed French word from the practice of fattening of geese for foie gras - starts early. Obesity has long been the ideal of beauty, signaling a family's wealth in a land repeatedly wracked by drought.

Mint was 4 when her family began to force her to drink 14 gallons of camel's milk a day. When she vomited, she was beaten. If she refused to drink, her fingers were bent back until they touched her hand. Her stomach hurt so much she prayed all the animals in the world would die so that there would be no more milk.

By the time Mint was 10, she could no longer run. Unconcerned, her proud mother delighted in measuring the loops of fat hanging under her daughter's arms.

"Bingo wings" may be the funniest things I've seen today. It is rare that a combination of two words makes me laugh until egg nog comes out of my nose. I've never had egg nog!

Bedstead Polisher: farkeruk: You know what cracks me up about feminists? On the one hand, they like to tell everyone that women are just as smart as men, on the other hand, that they are easily manipulated by marketing people.

Biologically speaking, it's a woman's job to be attractive to attract a mate. It's ingrained in the female psyche to preen and be as attractive as possible. Marketers are aware of this and play on those insecurities. They do the same for men, but for other things. Women are constantly being bombarded with these messages about how to fix "problem areas" whatever they may be. Sure, some aren't as vain as others and don't buy into that crap, but even the most intelligent fall prey to those insecurities.

Men fall for that stuff too when it comes to cars or technology. Why did so many people rush out to get an iPhone 5 on the first day it was released? Were their phones broken and they needed it immediately? No. Why do so many men NEED a certain car when most cars are adequate to get them around?

Feminism is about equality of the sexes. Both are equally prone to silly insecurities and desires, it's human nature.


You don't even have to look as far as cars and technology to find the equivalent; your first sentences apply just as much to men as women, except for social outcasts who've never had or completely lost the motivation to look nice. (Admittedly overrepresented on Fark.) Everything from Armani to Ed Hardy to Axe/Lynx became a top seller because of that drive.

Couldn't have said it better myself! I'm currently trying to lose weight and the weight I've lost so far (esp in the arms and thighs) has been due strength training and a $5 resistance band!

I have an uncommon body build where if I put on weight, it's going on my chest, arms, and back. I've always been self conscious about it and plenty of women have criticized me for it, but when it comes to dudes, they see a skinny girl with ginormous titties and they forget about the arms.

I can't find a reference but in Victorian times women could wear inflatable "cellulite" pads for arms (and other parts).

Being thin was thought of as looking ill, women wanted to be plump.
