Their image of sexy has become so masculine... the ideal is a woman who looks like a 13 year old boy. You have women obsessed by acheiving that ideal and they are ashamed of their thighs and butts and curves and starve themselves and workout and hate themselves and don't have sex. Of course they reproduce, but they aren't into sex.
    Actually it's the opposite. Ultra thin models may be presented as sexy but they aren't perceived that way. Very few men find that all that attractive. Most men want women with a bit of meat on their bones. Ultra thinness is actually more about un-sexiness. Sex is about desire and hunger. Being able to maintain that shape requires discipline and sacrifice, something that puritans and ascetics favor, and usually comes with the loss of fecundity. Women's sexuality has scared the bejeezus out of the powers that be forever and so presenting the ultra thin woman as sexy is actually saying is that you aren't allowed to desire sex but can allow your desirability to be controlled by others.

    I still think fat isn't sexy. It means unhealthy and unable to take care of herself for me, and that's not sexy at all.
    Yeah- the funny thing is that a lot of very fat women don't care, while the one's saying "Oh, I'm so fat" are women that no man would think are fat, except for a fashion designer.

    I mean, here is what the media considers to be a fat woman:

    She's not super fat, but she's fat. She would have a spare tire without her dress. Not attractive at all.

    It can mess with you- I mean, I'd KILL to look like Christina Aguilera, yet per the media, in that photo- she was basically called out as being a fat slob. Here is a less flattering angle- yesh, she's not lean- but has thick legs. To me, she looks powerful and strong and healthy. Much healthier than the women in the above pics.

    Justin Bieber looks like your average teenage boy. He's not girly/feminine, he just looks young. Most of the girls who like him are preteens and I'm quite glad they aren't into Harrison Ford or any other old guy.

    When I was a preteen I liked Johnathan Brandis, NKOTB, Christian Slater, etc. Now that I'm a grown woman I like "manlier" men. I don't care for children because I am not a child.

    The first mistake a person can make is to trust their spouse/significant other completely. You can't even trust yourself completely. Put in the right situation ANYONE would cheat. The smart thing to do is keep yourself out of risky situations.

    I have to agree with the media here. If you told me this is a 65 years old woman, I might agree she's hot for her age. That's it. She's 31 and she looks like Brigitte Bardot looks now at 77, she looks horrible.

    I would expect a healthy woman under 40 to be able to run 1K or 2K without dying of exhaustion. Christina looks like she'd die of a heart attack after the first 50 meters in that picture.

    Women shouldn't be fat around the midsection (she's shaped like a keg). It's one of the most obvious signs on unhealthiness.
