I do, and I see nothing but bubble butts touted as the ideal.

Again, examples please.

That is not the image I have of a woman with an athletic build.

I don't think most men agree with this. I think this was more of a 1950s attitude. Guys who are in shape like women who are in shape. A woman can have a curvaceous figure, and hourglass figure and still have an athletic build. I suggest you Google images or videos of Crossfit women. They have hundreds of videos online with women lifting weights and doing other workouts. Most of the women are very attractive.

I have found the same is true with women who are runners. Go to a large 10K race and you won't find many women who look "wiry or underdeveloped." This may be true of elite women marathon runners, but is not true of average female runners.

Curves are much more than boobs fyi.
The two don't always go hand in hand.

The defining part of a woman that makes or breaks curves in the WHR.

Not all obese or overweight women are curvy,and not all thin women are straight up and down.

Who has more curves,Naomi Campbell or Adele?

You should hang around the Relationships forum. The guys there mostly post women with hourglass figures as their preferred type. The don't let us forget it.
I know a couple of women who run 10K races. They have boy bodies.
The women in the video look pretty much as the OP describes; narrow hips, no waist, and moderate or big boobs. I guess the reason women "aspire" to this is because a lot of guys like you prefer it. Who knew?

I made a comment in the exercise forum around why women don't lift weights. There is a bit of bias. People with certain figure types tend to gravitate towards certain sports. Or maybe those without the "ideal" body type are discouraged from childhood. I know full well that I could be the queen of crossfit, but I am not remotely shaped like the "ideal" women. I'd much rather see women closer to my own body type to use as references and inspiration.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

I'm talking in this way because these are the 'tropes' that are popular with society. You just feel threatened when people attack your precious modelling fraternity which glamourises something that others don't automatically go gaga about. Well it's time to accept that people have other views that you might feel uncomfortable with.

Your threads make it seem like you do not know any women in real life including sisters, mother, etc.

Also the title of this thread is demeaning no matter how you try to slice it. What if I started a thread "Why do so many men do XYZ like little 12 year old girls?"

You are either dense, have issues with women, or are trolling. Maybe you have never had a friendship with a woman, a sister, et.c

I don't understand the "no waist" comment. These women have little fat around their waist and defined abs. The biggest difference between the size of women's hips is how much fat they are carrying on them. The majority of women are carrying way too much fat, and their hips and butts are where it accumulates.

I wonder if "hairless bird" is reference to a 'Bald' Eagle.

Women hold onto fat in their hips and pelvis region because it is essential for giving birth. That's why essential fat for women is 5-7% higher than for men. Waist-height ratio is actually a pretty good indicator of a woman's health. (better than weight, actually) And a low waist-hip ratio is considered ideal.

VVV Whoops, sorry. Corrected.

Low WHR, actually, not high.
