This is an appeal to ridicule.. a logical fallacy. Besides, you are the one who called them eggtimers. I am comparing them to the shape of the hourglass.

You don't like that? Then how about coke bottles? You DO know that the feminine form inspired the shape of the coke bottle, right? That's a historical fact. I don't see any creases on that shape.
Well I see a Coke can as curvy, too. Because it is.
I'm not posting in this thread to interrupt it, I'm posting because you don't want other people to refer to a plump person as curvy and others can say and believe whatever they please just as you can.
So, plump women are curvy, and that's my final word on it.
Ta-ta.

I suppose in some small way it's a matter of perspective. When I see a Rubenesque woman I notice the concave parts, the creases as well as the convex parts, the lumps. I suppose when you see these women you notice the convex parts and only the convex parts. When you ONLY pay attention to convex parts and you ignore the concave parts I suppose it's understandable to consider them curvy. I like the concave parts of a woman's body (who has an hourglass figure) just as much as I like convex parts. But when the concave parts are sharp, not so attractive. But that's just me. And I think it's more observant to pay attention to both the concave and the convex parts.

I guess if you personally look at a tub of cottage cheese you'll see more curves than a freshly opened tub of margarine. Me? I see the lumps in a tub of cottage cheese and I love the smooth look of a freshly opened tub of margarine. I do like the taste of cottage cheese though. But that's another topic. LOL

I'm tall and thin and have never thought of myself as curvy, but I recently bought "curvy" jeans (Levis 529's, size 8L) and they fit great and I love them.

So now I don't know if I'm curvy or straight.

They can refer to themselves however they want...who is going to stop them?

Personally, I HATE when people refer to me as 'big'... yes, I'm tall, but I'm NOT BIG.

It's inaccurate. When I read a personal ad and it includes the word "curvy" I move on to the next ad. It changes the definition so much that a woman with a truly attractive hourglass figure (who genuinely has more curves than a "curvy" woman) doesn't want to call herself curvy.

Really? You think the desire for people to accurately describe themselves is responsible for increases in crime, poverty, poor education, high levels of unemployment? Riiiiight. You know what's REALLY responsible for those things? Tolerance towards immorality.

Back on topic.

Good for you. When I read a personal ad from a man who can't spell worth a darn and has horrible grammar I move right past him.

Generally, I also don't pay much attention to someone who is under 6' tall. There are exceptions, of course...but everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

Lol let's not get this ridiculous conversation on the topic of ugly or fugly. Might as well just throw in ugly hot, too. What is the different of ugly, fugly, and ugly hot?

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

Who died and made you ruler? If a man sees a thick woman with curves and wants to call her curvy, he can. There are plenty of curvy woman that are size 14 and 16 and look amazing. I would not put the word "thin" and "curvy" in the same sentence. Do you think those Victoria Secret Models are curvy? I don't. They use tricks to make themselves appear curvy. The woman voted sexiest woman alive is a size 14. She has curves. The sexiest woman to date is Marilyn Monroe and she was a 12. Get over yourself.
