I think everyone on the planet should judge their prospective partners by how fat or thin or beautiful or ugly they are and it really should not matter how terrible their personality is and when they get old and wrinkled like you will then you can trade them in for one much younger except they won't have you unless you have lots of money and live like the playboy king in the playboy mansion and provide absolutely everything for them including those plastic inserts that give them their curves...........

Seriously, sheesh

This is why very heavyset men can't have kids as well as if they were skinny. So why is it wrong to say a women is fat?
People have their preferences just like you seem to have your preferences for really skinny guys. Why would it be wrong for others to see a certain size as physically unattractive but it's okay for you to? If that's your preference, okay, but if you're going to have your own strict preferences don't be surprised when other people have theirs, too.

Judging by your statements and your photo illustration above, There's some femininity in a women up to, say 150lbs and 5'9" to 6' IF she's reasonably toned but beyond that obese comes to mind.
Sorry, but that's my take. Now if she's 6'3" and 175lbs, then amazon comes to mind.
I'm 6' and 240lbs so if she's bigger than me, that's a real deal breaker!

I think it depends on the way she carries her weight. I'm 6'1 and around 195 and I'm a comfortable size 13. Anything under 170 or so makes me look a bit too thin because I do have wide hips and a very deep ribcage. I'm just meant to carry a bit extra weight. Even at 240 (my biggest) I was still only a size 16, not exactly huge by most people's judgement.

150 lbs is practically skeletal on me...I was 154 after tonsillitis surgery many years back and my aunt actually asked my mom if I was Anorexic or bulemic. Soooo, every woman carries weight differently.

I meant more on an individual basis. Like my question was why is fat considered a bad word. I mean it in a clinical sense not good or bad more like why then who should do what.....

Fat on men or women is unattractive to me. It's more than just an issue of aesthetics....but more so about a perception of laziness. I just don't get how some can let themselves get so big without getting off their asses and doing something about it.

I'm the laziest person you'll ever meet and pretty tiny... I don't think weight always has to do with laziness there are very healthy obese people just like lazy skinny people...

I've seen you post your size a few times and always wondered...where are you buying these odd numbered clothes? I thought women's clothing was always even numbers and teens clothes were odd?

I buy whatever jeans are relatively cheap and long. For years I've ordered from Alloy because they offer jeans under $40 with a 37" inseam. I suppose they're 'teen' jeans, but they fit much better than 'womens' jeans on me.

We are genetically programmed to seek the healthiest person of the opposite sex to mate with. We instinctively reject those who are the weakest, either physically or mentally.
