    By the way, anybody who thinks the women in the Dove ads are fat has to be a 15 year old boy or a 15 year old boy trapped in a man's body because the Victoria's Secret ads are like 15 year old boys with boobs.

    I hate that we have 1. a definition of beauty that only includes the VS model. And then we start thinking a healthy female body is fat. To me it looks like every last one of the Dove women is healthy. None of them have flabby stomachs. They all have some tone to their legs. None of them would have made the "fat lady" podium back in 1900.



    Probably most of the women here that eat steak and lift heavy things LOOK like the dove models. Those ripped fitness models are not normal women following Primal Blueprint. They are either very lucky genetically or work very hard to stay leaner than a woman's body wants to be.

    Women have body fat and curve to their ass, thighs and hips in many/most cases.
    I was going to say something like this last night but didn't feel like getting into it. I fully agree. The Dove models look strong, like they could do heavy work, carry a child, put a serious beat-down on you if need be. The VS models look like they'd have a hard time doing much of anything. I realize that some people are just naturally very thin. I had a friend that ate like a horse and couldn't gain weight, but she was wiry and strong, worked on cars, spent summers in Alaska in a salmon canning plant. Seriously, she was bad ass. So being thin doesn't automatically mean weak and fragile, but the VS women, especially numbers 1 and 4, look starved and unhealthy.

    The guy in the first link according to the link was 525 pounds at 19. The second link is of a person who according to Wiki was 442 pounds. He married his fellow 'circus freak' who weighed in at 570. While society is getting more obese most people are a far cry from 500+ pounds. Sure, those people exist, but they are far from the norm. Even if a quick web search is correct and it is 2 million in the US who are 500+ pounds (more than I expected to be honest) that is still <1% So not on the level of uniqueness of a circus freak but still not the norm.

    Also fat women are real women. They are not fake. Also they have curves. Hell, I have a fat roll on my stomach and it curves very well. It curves far better than the wash board abs some dudes are sporting.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I won't trust those reported weights from 100 years ago. Circuses would also lie about stuff like that.
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    The only thing I don't get about fat pride I've observed is if you love yourself so much why don't you stop eating shit and maybe prepare yourself a salad.

    Understood. I mentioned that in my other post. .67% or not 2 million is a lot of people. It was like when we were deployed "Only 1% of the population is radicalized and wants to kill you" well, great but that is still hundreds of thousands of people that want to kill me.
