Shouldn't it be something they're proud of just like any other shaped women? Even tall column can be proud of being held high in some modeling businesses. Why is it though fat is a bad word when it comes to female anatomy? If I were fat I'd be proud for the assets and not the fallthroughs...
Fat is not feminine. Fat is fat. Women naturally have a higher percentage of body fat than men. This however is not an excuse for a women to sit on her butt eating cookies and ice cream all day while demanding her partner works hard to stay fit and trim. Being able to carry a higher percentage of body fat doesn't give one gender an excuse to let themselves go over another. If one gender is allowed to let themselves go then the other should be as well. If one gender has to work hard to stay fit then the other should as well.

I think she's super confused. It would help if she could figure out the reply button.

Ya know, it's funny how the stereotype is that the wife gets fat by being lazy but in nearly every single relationship I've seen it's usually the man getting fat and lazy while the wife tries to keep up her appearance.

My response was addressing the OP and this ridiculous notion that one gender is allowed to let themselves go while the other is to stay trim, but to put it bluntly OP, most people don't find fat in women attractive because they don't find fat in men attractive. The way you feel about fat men, well that's how a lot of people feel about fat people in general male or female. Most people don't believe in this silly mentality that obesity is more acceptable in one gender.

I think there is or should be more room for women to be a bit fatter than men.

For men? NO! You do not breast feed and fat around the midsection - which is where men tend to collect it, is dangerous to their health.

The thing is, our country has a problem with obesity. Morbid obesity.

There does seem to be a double standard though, and I'm not buying into it.

Donald Trump, for example looks pretty fat to me. Yet all of his wives are stick thin.

What do you wanna bet that the Donald wears some kind of corset or girdle?
Yes, ma'm, he sure walks as though he's wearing one.

I think most people find others unattractive if they look ill. There are think people who I find attractive, but somehow they look as though they are 'comfortable' being that way, as though nature intended that for them. On the other hand, most fat people (not just overweight) look as though they have mental problems to me. People who have the urge to eat so much, to me, have a mental illness.

Yeah but people should also realise who they are and realise who they probably could and could not get. If you're a fat person, you should not expect to be with an athletic healthnut. If you're ugly you should not expect to be with a supermodel.

Hormonal probs is a bs excuse. Europeans have hormones too and they are not fat. It is our food and our lifestyle and people have no one to blame but themselves. It is not genetics, it is not hormones, it is YOU. (Not you Jay specifically- i mean people in general)
