This lie is actually detrimental to society.

Diversity is great except when it isnt.

Big girls can be attractive.  Skinny girls can be attractive.  biatches are never attractive after 15 minutes.

This all boils down to ease in judgement.  Getting to know someone takes time and effort.  It's easier to make judgments based on appearance.  Disney is just taking advantage of that laziness.

Jeez, this thread makes me feel sorry for kids these days.  They're born into a world where they're completely at the mercy of whatever carb-filled processed shiatfood their parents cram in the cupboard because they're working too much to cook properly.  A world where a big-screen TV and an XBOX is a given, while things like bicycles and dogs and time in nature are luxury items that many can't afford.  Even if they have bikes, the roads are too dangerous to bike on anyway.  A world where all their peer interactions involve the internet somehow...

...so they end up fat, and the old men here mock them and say, "hey!  You should have grown up with a stay-at-home mom who could spend 4 hours a day making real food!  Leave all your friends behind and go run around in the woods like a crazy hermit!"

Baby boomers.  You damn near ruined this world.  Stop blaming the kids who have to inherit your utter failure.

Also... i'm an artist.  Trust me, it's perfectly possible to draw a curvy, sorta-chubby character and still have them look vibrant and Disney-cute and nowhere near this uncanny valley you fear.  It just requires a different sort of stylization.

Christ.  I bet when people were asking for a black Disney princess, some douches were all, "look, there's a reason there are no black princesses, it's just that dark shades of brown don't, ah, mesh well with the typical color palette."

Five Tails of Fury: Holy jesus, this thread is depressing.

So people want girls with actual, realistic body shapes to be included in a style of film that provides role models for kids and early-teens. And y'all are responding with "OMG fattie fat mcfattersons everywhere go take your fat selves and jump off a cliff, you'll splash nicely at the bottom."

Given how often I've tried to talk to a non-fat woman only to have her fat, self-hating, bitter friend pop up like an evil genie and chime in with "Leave us ALONE!!  Leave us ALONE!!", I'd be delighted if fat women performed mass suicide off of a cliff, or were pushed, or were shot en masse.

People are shallow and vain. The media isn't defining what they like, it's giving them what they want.

TheBigJerk: Hollie Maea: TheBigJerk: I'm just hungry, all the farking time.  Stomach-churning, stabbing-pains, thinking about food every five minutes HUNGRY every goddamned second I haven't just stuffed it full of heavy stuff.

Do you eat a lot of high glycemic index food?  That is a common cause of that, due to the pancreas overshooting insulin production.  Slower burning foods over a long period of time could help.

Probably?  I had a vegetarian week where I would eat and eat and feel like I hadn't eaten anything at all until I added some meat to it.

I am sure it is related to a family history rife with diabetes too.

Breads and sugars end up making a heavy appearance because of bad habits, (hate cooking) and, you know, America(fark yeah!).  But really it's meat that makes the pain stop.

And meat isn't slow-burning enough.


Yeah, your problem is pretty obvious. I had the same issue.

The suggestion about the high GI foods is dead on. You're going to kill yourself with the carbs if you keep at it, and I mean that literally, with your family history you are going to get type-2 diabetes if you keep going like you are.

Meat is actually plenty slow burning (all fats and proteins are), the problem is that you have to deprive your body of the carbs for a sustained period of time. Typically this is 3-5 days. Then your hunger pains will go away. If you want to make it go easy on yourself, just eat a farkload of cheese and meat and nothing else for 7 days.

Eventually your insulin levels will stabilize and you'll ditch the insane hunger pains. At that point, you're pretty much free from your body chemistry and everything else is just going to be your own emotional and mental issues with food. Which, I admit, is a big deal.

Anyway, TL;DR - put down the carbs. They are going to give you the diabeetus.

I spent 10 years working 60 hours a week, raising my son, and caring for an invalid wife.  Dinner was every day at 6 and it was almost always homemade, from scratch, even if it was leftovers.  Many times I fed his friends as well.  There was no carb/sugar filled/processed crap in our house because I didn't want him to grow up a fat bastard and it was my job to prepare him for life.  It can be done, you just have to make it a priority.

It's not the kids fault, I agree with that.  At some point though, you become responsible for yourself and you don't get to blame the world around you for the things that make you unhappy.

Two16: "Teen Starts Petition..."

[dosedosedose.files.wordpress.com image 850x606]


I don't care how bad the problem is (especially telling since I'm in the process of losing weight), trying to solve it by signing a petition to make it more socially acceptable is NOT THE SOLUTION.  Hell, the entire "let's make petitions to make the awful mean icky things in the world go away" movement is just reatarded if you ask me.  (Not that there aren't some with merit, like the Bieber expulsion one, but still.)

I'll have both. Make them work out and bring them to my double-wide bunk.

Incidentally I really like that chubby Ariel, and find Fiona the Ogre-Princess very attractive.

Yeah. Teach kids it's ok to be fat. Why not make her a smoker too?

Because that might kill her appetite!

As someone who has ranged from thin to overweight, 130-216 (I'm 5'10"), I can definitely opine that thinner is better on every level. At my heaviest I would "embrace my full figure" and learned how to be happy even while fat. There are lots of guys that like full figures, even fat women.

But physically, it didn't feel good to me. Sluggish, metabolism in the toilet, couldn't keep up with good sex. Aches and pains, flab flopping everywhere. Being slender is totally worth eating right and working out five times a week. I don't think there are women that really want to be fat, just like there aren't many drug addicts that want that money on their back. But humans are great at rationalizing. It's easier.

You will be old one day.  Then what?
