Like I mentioned earlier, many of the people I run with aren't thin but they're definitely fit.
He should have said, "I can't be with someone who's not skinny".
It's just a matter of wording I think. People should not be saying fit when they really mean skinny/thin.

And that's fine, but just don't say 'fit' when you mean skinny. And muscle weighs more than fat, so you're looking for an aesthetic look not a weight.

I'm glad my husband prefers thick. No matter how much weight I lose, these thunder thighs aren't going anywhere.

You're doomed to failure in your relationship with anyone if you would automatically demean a fat woman by calling her a "fatty". It's your usage of the word that's most disturbing... and this is why fat women constantly feel like second-class citizens here. If you aren't attracted to fat women, that's fine and it's your choice. But instead of saying "fatty", how about "a fat woman"? If you know it sounds mean, why say it? Have you nothing better to do with your time than be mean to a group of people, most of whom you do not personally know, and VERY few of whom ever cause any measurable trouble for anyone? (Let's face it. I could probably count on one hand the number of Americans who have ever crossed some neighborhood off the list of places to where they were considering moving, on the grounds that too many fat people lived in that neighborhood.)

Suppose you weren't attracted to black ladies. Would you say "I can't be with a n****r"? I'm guessing you wouldn't. Likewise, don't use insulting terms for fat people either. Call 'em fat and be done with it. They generally don't mind that word because it's a descriptive adjective (assuming it's used in a purely descriptive form). "Fatty" is a term coined by people who wished to insult those among us who are fat.

How about just plain ol healthy. Sheesh neither FAT or SKINNY but just right works for me.

You really have to go back to the 1980's and early 90's to find just right. Everything seems so out of proportion now a days. Like that gross thing hanging off the back of Kim Fatasshian.

And that gross picture of the skeleton wearing clothes posted by the bi a few posts back? yeah that made me want to hurl.

God I sound like my Grandparents did.

Hips also come into play,as does body size.
Small hips with thick legs just doesn't look right. Same as the opposite,big hips with small thighs and calves.
Exactly. But the batch of photos that was posted show average legs, even slightly thick in the thighs. So I guess the answer to the poll, again, is "neither". Those are neither thin legs nor excessively (though somewhat thick) legs in the photos.

I'm a thin girl with thin legs. I love my legs, and I'm surprised that thin legs have quite a lot of votes! Most of the guys I know make really disparaging comments about thin women.
