On the first one -- if that is her natural body weight, is it really right to say that she's gross or wrong? I find this whole "real women have curves" thing to be as self-defeating as the hate for larger women. Either way, it emphasizes this idea that a woman's worth is in her body and whether other people find her attractive. Why can't we just accept women's bodies, large or small?

Dear ladies

Despite an entire sub market that's been developed to cater to, reinforce the self esteem of and blow smoke at the morbidly obese, it's just not catching on.

I realize that some aspects of obesity are genetic. It's a fact. There are genetic predispositions to being over weight, and you have to combat that with diet, lots of exercise and working tirelessly to keep your metabolism cranked up to 10.

However, if you have a 70 pound gut wattle and three rows of back boobs and your inner thighs look like two industrial sized sacks of lard and you need to lift your belly out of the way to wipe yourself and you huff and wheeze like a marathon runner if you have to walk to the fridge, you are not only staggeringly unattractive, but you're probably gonna die a lot sooner than you need to. You too, guys. It's just not something that hits the switch for most of the species as far as "ooh, teh sexayy!" Sorry.

Hmmm. From my experience and observation, I think most men actually like women that fall some place in the healthy weight spectrum- but that is now that is considered 'skinny' if you're looking at people out on the street because so many people are overweight.

By hollywood/modeling standards, that is fat, or at best 'curvy'. And usually what men mean when they say they like 'curvy', not 300 lbs of curves.

Hollywood/modeling 'skinny' though, is the proverbial bag of bones where the girl is medically underweight and doesn't seem to be desired that much except to be looked at in pictures. Somehow in regular life, girls who are that skinny don't seem to get as much attention, I don't know why. Maybe there's just a big enough difference between look and feel. Or maybe the camera does add an extra 10 pounds.

So yeah, they prefer 'skinny' women, if by skinny you mean 'not medically obese' and some place in the healthy weight zone, which should really not be news at all.

In addition, the study revealed that women who are not comfortable with their body perceive women with a "normal" body -i.e. women with a healthy weight- as a threat. Specifically, when these women see a "normal" body they experience feelings of displeasure and lack of control, since they feel they have not any control on their own body and cannot make it be as they want.

This just in: women are petty and jealous about other women. More coverage at 11.

I think they translated that article with babel fish or something.

Anyway, the article says "bodies with a normal weight" are popular, so I don't think that mean your typical runway model bag of antlers.

I prefer thin or fit women visually for sure, but I've been attracted to overweight women before, if they've an attitude I like.  And attitude tends to go a hell of a lot farther than appearance if it's someone you might see for any real length of time.

I thought it was weird that the article said that men prefer model types with a healthy weight, but most models are not a normal weight. Tall and clothes fall well on them maybe, but not normal proportions. And by normal I don't mean obese, even if that's become normal over on this continent.

My wife and I recently listed to a TED talk on relationships. The lady suggested that women who were married to men who were fatter than they were, were significantly happier and the relationship was healthier overall.

Why? Because the woman doesn't have to constantly compare herself to her mate,

I'm putting on some pudge lately... because I love my wife. Seriously though, I'm getting a biatchunky around the midsection (my definition may be different from other peoples - when I graduated high school I was 5'9" 130, at 30 I'm 5'9 170) so I'm trying to motivate myself to lose some weight. I keep saying that if I ever look down and no longer see my little buddy, I need to work out. It's going to happen soon.

Profound. Couldn't have said it better myself.

Too bad all of these 'juicy' ladies with 8 foot butts, bowling ball heads, big, fat, flat feet and 30 lb saggy boobs disagree. I see them on game shows dancing around and calling themselves sexy and I want to hurl all over the screen.

I really get the urge to hurl when shopping in Wal-mart and they appear, wearing short - shorts, cell phone glued to one ear and faces starting to resemble those of a British Bulldog.

Goes for guys too. Suck it in fellows. Chicks aint that crazy about beer barrel guts, faces with enough jowls to look melted and for cripes sake, knock it off with the knee shorts, sports jerseys designed to fit an elephant and baseball caps perched on bullet heads.

The day old stubble look just makes your face look like a rocky, plowed field. Besides, all that flab is going to make sure your wife outlives you by about 15 years.
