That's why they don't ask it for the answer, the ask it for the drama it creates.

Desire for drama is the driving factor.

What would you (women) prefer to hear?

that's when you instruct her to remove her clothes so you can investigate. insist that there's no way to tell, with all that fabric in the way.

from there it becomes a win win situation.

If she asks, "Do I look fat in this?", the answer should be "Yes." Why? Because then she can go shopping for something new!

You must be a generous husband! Most would say "no" to prevent just that!

Awww. I usually go shopping with her and help her pick out the most flattering items. She's frugal, and sometimes needs a little encouragement.

I think a guy should be blunt and tell me the truth.

That's crap.

Betamanlet takes a lot of abuse on these boards but a lot of the time he's right on target. It's just that he's not PC and that bothers a lot of people. He doesn't worship at the shrine of womanhood and just blindly accept all the PC nonsense that goes around.
