Am I the only one who finds Kim Kardashian to be not that attractive? It's obvious that she is better looking than I am in every way, and I think she has a nice body but her butt is nasty. The girl in the video has a better butt than Kim does.

I beg to differ.

Please stop calling plump women curvy. It's an insult to women with hourglass figures.

Actually if a white woman is 5 pounds overweight she is fat
a black woman 50 pounds overweight and she is considered normal. Why is this?

Ummm, no, I don't think anyone thinks being 50lbs overweight is "normal".

What you have is diverging understandings of what is considered culturally acceptable.

On the whole (granted, this is not all-inclusive, nor is it a scientifically substantiated declaration, it's more empirical than anything else, I speak as a woman of African American and Latin American descent), the African American community is less obsessed with weight and body image because it's not something upon which an enormous amount of emphasis is placed. Does this mean that African American women would prefer to be overweight? No, not at all. It means that an all-out preoccupation with one's size and such are not nearly as prevalent. You're taught that beauty has more than one way of existing. You are beautiful because of how you move, what you think, what you believe, and how you express yourself, not because you are thin. It has more to do with what you're raised to believe is acceptable in terms of your body and body image. If African American women were so apt to consider being overweight normal, why did Jennifer Hudson head off to the Weight Loss land? Or how about Missy Elliott? Probably because the pressures for them to look a certain way became stronger as they began to circulate in certain circles? Don't you think holy h*ll would erupt if Halle Berry put on an extra forty pounds? I don't know, just putting it out there.

There are also African American women who are more than happy to accept their bodies as they are, Queen Latifah comes to mind. I think she's a beautiful person and she shouldn't have to become a gaunt, waif to prove to anyone.

Also, I prefer buxom or zaftig to "plump" or curvy. Thank you.

GTFOH!!!!!


I'll say this though. There is an overwhelming majority of women that would be considered somewhat overweight by medical standards that I find particurlarly attractive. Even more attractive than the ultra-fit women with low body percentage fat or w/e it's called. Btw, this applies to all races.

Come on... white males are extremely critical of females body weight. I know not every guy is, but I would say overall while males are much harder on women and their weight than any other race of men out there.

Here are a few curvy women that I posted in a thread a while back. I swear, I get at least two people everyday (non members) who give me rep points for this: http://www.city-data.com/forum/7102346-post8.html

So an "S" is curvy? A "B" has creases? An "O" is very curvy. I figure most figures are closer to a "0" than an "8". I guess I don't get the problem.
