So you're saying that by owning up to it, I'm in the minority of non-liars?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: MMMM think girl thread!!


You do realize both of those girls are on the thin side of average, right?

Curvy has always been a euphemism for fat.

It's just that Americans have gotten used to being around fat chicks for so long that it's become the new normal.

Curvy can be fine as long as it's healthy. There's a difference, obviously.

Curvy has style and appeal. Fat is awkward. low self esteem tends to impose itself and create uncomfortable situations.

They do. They look fantastic. But they're not "curvy" in the "thick" sense of the word. They're not fat at all.

fat rolls are curvy. in a technical sense.

It's the dysphemism treadmill, same as with the Christina Hendricks "full-figured" debacle a couple of weeks ago. People with very real problems co-opt a compliment as a form of denial, and then the compliment becomes so associated with these problems that it becomes an insult.

As long as your titties and hips is stickin out further than the gut, everything is fine.

There are curves OTHER than "sphere". All I'm sayin'.
 
2012-12-12 11:08:58 PM
I usually specify a radius as well. 'Curvy' is just too vague.

I half expected a link to the Jezebel story on this article. For shame, Fark. For shame. Could've been muuuuch lulzy-er.

You can read all about it in Zapp Brannigan's Guide to Making Love at a Woman.

I like the term "curvy"... When it fits, of course. I did nude "modeling" for art classes in college and I always got more classes than other "models" because they wanted to draw a woman with curves.

Whatever. Boobs are usually sweet. So there's that.

I was referred to as "peasant stock". Sadly, I cannot have children, but I definitely have the child-bearing hips. I am not fat, either. But I am sure some smartass will come along and tell me that I'm in denial or something. Oh well.

The clash between "fat acceptance" and "you can improve yourself" camps is only just starting to heat up. Over the next decade, expect to consume a lot of popcorn.
