gaspode: What an absolute waffling self-absorbed twit. So you got tits. Half the world has tits. I have balls, but I don't write articles about how they make me feel.


I'll second this, and I've had C+ cups since I was 12. Beyond the adjustment period (say the first six months to a year after they appear), if a woman is having trouble getting people to take her seriously, there's more to it than just the boobs, and blaming them or people's reaction to them is just a cop-out.

Your link confuses me, cause Chenopodium is a plant genus.

Yeah I know but those are typically paid links (ahahaha) and it used to be part of the culture.  Whatever.  Time marches on.  And so do I.  With my nuts swinging in the breeze.

Graffito: gaspode: What an absolute waffling self-absorbed twit. So you got tits. Half the world has tits. I have balls, but I don't write articles about how they make me feel.

What if your gynormous balls were the object of constant jokes and ridicule?  What if people stared at your balls and talked to them and not you?  What if they assumed you were stupid because of them?  What if they caused you back pain and you couldn't exercise or find decent fitting clothes?

32G is an extreme size and the article was one person's experiences with this breast size in a society were men fetishize women's breasts.  If you don't want to read about other people's experiences then don't click the link.

This thread sucks.  Seat belt thread from yesterday was MUCH better.
 
2014-02-26 03:57:19 PM  
You don't assume power...you take it!

And you can take it two ways: directly or indirectly.

Directly would be using your gigantic mammary glands as a way to feel more self assured and just being a confident, well adjusted and happy individual who is able to lead others by example.

Indirectly:  Hillary Clinton with huge tits/Machiavellian

The author of that "article" has made the impossible happen.
She actually made boobs boring.

I can't read all that shiat. I don't care about your boobs or how they affect you. I just care about looking at them. On that note, fark you, FARK.com. fark you very much.

A boob thread without boobs. Wtf fark?

Either this is the worst form of attention whoring, or (considerably less likely) it's just proof that women will find reasons to be dissatisfied with their bodies no matter what.

Whoever took that picture of the Chenopodium got booby-bombed.

of all women I figure maybe 15-20% have big natural boobs of D cup and larger. (and I'm not including the piles of jaba but girls with actual defineable figure shapes.) Of that group maybe .3% like/love them but they are in porn. The other.7% don't mind them and are not in porn. The other 99% hate them and are always complaining about back pain, no clothes that fit or how they are always in the way. Doesn't give us much of chance.

I think that was the point of the article.  If have the population only sees you as a pair of boobs then having supersize  ones can be a liability if you want to have a life with dignity.

Whenever a site like Salon (or Jezebel or xoJane or) publishes a story like this, it usually means their pageview numbers have been sagging and so they're trying to give them a lift.

No, it makes you a whore. A slut does it for fun.

DRTFA, but as the husband of a woman with huge breasts (38K, or something far along in the alphabet, anyways), the benefits don't always outweigh (giggity) the costs.

Being taken seriously can be a real problem. For those who choose to exploit these attributes, good for them; but those who don't face some serious challenges just being taken seriously.

It's a gift and a curse. I think my wife would mostly say: "curse".

Maybe you should get out and meet more women. I've known several deep-chested women, and their opinions on the matter were between apathy and exhibitionism.

The back pain is because of flabby abs. Do sit-ups so your back doesn't have to do all of the work.

You know what? It DOES suck having men pay more attention to your boobs than to what you're saying. But speaking as a moderately attractive female with an impressively-sized rack, I've never had a problem making sure I'm taken seriously. How you dress, how you present yourself, how you speak, and how you treat others will have more of an impact than your cleavage ever will.

It's almost like it's common for a small-framed woman to have a 32-inch chest measurement.

It does depend on: "how impressively sized?" and also the culture. If that culture happens to be obsessed with big tits, then things can be a lot harder.
