People should be with whomever they want to be with regardless of how they look. If a health nut falls for a larger person that's their prerogative.

you completely missed what he said. If a health nut wants to be with a larger person, more power to the the health nut, but a larger person should not expect or be upset that a person does not want to be with them if they are a large person.

on a scientific level fat cells secrete estrogen therefore yes they are feminine.... And an excess is unhealthy.

it is genetics. It's why my mom and I can stuff our faces sit on the couch all day and not gain a pound. While others can't because their genetic make up allows them to gain much more weight. While ours gives us a limit on how high we can get which is barely healthy and skinny at the max. Most people aren't this way for survival reasons. When food becomes scarse we're the first to go because we can't survive off much smaller calories than 1500 a day. While those with obese tendencies tend to survive and pass it on to their children because they can live off much less food and still be productive. Obesity and the aility to be heavier promoted by natural selection. It's also why my mom's dad is fat despite he past these genes on to her. Most family trees have famine somewhere down the line. If we had complete skinny genes throughout our heritage we wouldn't exist. And this is why likely so many are obese because during famine they were less likely to perish.

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 on a woman is not called feminine. It is called laziness.

A little bit of fat may make a woman look healthy, youthful and feminine. But I see more of the extreme than anything else. And that ages a woman's looks and is not good for her health. I'll leave off the strict figure aesthetics onthisbecause I understand how highly subjective this can be.

i'm sorry, I shouldn't have assumed that. With that being said, lets be honest, your screenname is Jdawg, even you would have to admit that sounds more like a guy would create that screenname.

Yes. I think most of us have a tendency to view fat in a negative way because it speaks of ill health, and a slovenly uncaring attitude about the self. It's a turn off. If you look as though you don't care about yourself, why should anyone else?

Of course, that is misleading, but people should try to look as though they have their act together. The repulsiveness of fat is probably mostly subconscious in most of us. We are ashamed that we judge others in such a superficial way, but we do.
