That's not what I said, which makes your second comment pretty funny.

This thread is funny. My take on it is that I like what I like TODAY. I dont care about what women looked like during the wild wild west. I dont care about what women looked like in the 1500s, 1200s, B.C. or any other time. It is what I find attractive today.

Like body builder on the 'roids or naturally athletic "ripped". I wouldn't call most athletic girls "ripped", that's a term I'd reserve more for the the models on muscle magazine covers. And no, I don't consider them hot. CrossFit chick on the other hand....

I'm talking about athletes' bodies. I like them alot more than the model body because they are more powerful.

What would Psyche do back in the day to tone up? Play volleyball? Throw a javelin?

To "be healthy and show some muscle tone," a woman has to watch her calories, get sweaty on a regular basis, and do activities that require strength.

It's bizarre to me that an ordinary young woman is viewed as bloated and fat because she is not thin and muscular. It borders on body dysmorphia, in my opinion.
No. There is a body between the painting and gym bunny. That is what I would consider healthy. Not the picture of a bloated slave owner.

I don't know about pioneer women personally, but I can tell you going back through family photographs women who had to do work had fat AND muscle. They didn't look like a glob of brie cheese.

Bloated and fat may be ordinary. Doesn't make it healthy or desirable.

Why is watching not to over eat and being active so insane?
I mean really....

Who exactly, is bloated, and where does slave-owning come into this at all? The painting in the OP is of a Greek myth and painted by a French artist.

The female in the OP. She was a princess and in those times people kept slaves.

Let's make a LaoTzu-CurrencyCroc pact, the first of its kind.

You take all fitties. I take all fatties.

BBWs up for grabs for the really really REAL men. Let's not go there.
