So some special and peculiar news item, which is exactly why it's a news item, is an excuse for projecting that medication disasters tend to happen in 90% of the world population and puts them out of shape??

You're much smarter than that, Sierra

I think she was just stating that you can't ALWAYS judge why someone is overweight. Were those conditions listed common? No. But do they happen? Yes. Do you think those people it happens to try their hardest to get rid of the weight that comes on? I'm sure most do. We're talking biochemical/physiological issues compared to some foodie going up for seconds, thirds...


Also, the latter condition is now being studied and is thought to be as common as 1 in 1,000 compared to old estimates of 1-2 in 1,000,000. Brazil and India are at the forefront of new research on these conditions.

Exactly. That is why when it comes to these forums when the issue of weight is discussed, I assume we are just talking about people who are normal and not suffering from some sore of illness unless the thread/title specifically states such ailment the person is suffering from.

So, to answer the OP, no it is NOT wrong to be attracted to larger women. Me personally, I am NOT attracted to them.

The thing I'm surprised that no one has brought up so far is that both Rosie O'Donnel and Anna Nicole Smith could be described as "plus size" or "large" - and, OK, if both, either, or neither light your fire, there isn't anything wrong with it one way or the other. It's just taste.

But me, Anna Nicole was always (physically) appealing to me, but Rosie not so much. But that's just MY taste. But I think there are more guys out there that would like Anna than Rosie.

Besides the obvious figure differences, I think it might be related to the fact that Rosie isn't really known for her feminine side. If Anna was all butched out, I don't see the men digging her either.

Yes, because there are many attractive qualities that Anna had, while Rosie is pretty much hideous.

Yeah but Rosie was pretty hot in The Flinestones movie wearing that short animal print and carring that big club. I thing Fred and the gang was into a leather / bondage thing back in the caves.

That's funny, because I thought they did Betty Rubble a disservice by having Rosie play her. Betty was a good-looking prehistoric cartoon character.

And too many people would say that as though it were a bad thing.

Sad isn't it.

Men are more than partially to blame for the negativity surrounding the term "plus size," but women are just as guilty too.

The three beautiful ladies you mentioned are far from what I'd consider "plus-size." The closest woman of that time I'd consider voluptuous was Anita Ekberg. That woman had some rediculous curves, even moreso than Jayne Mansfield who was considered the voluptuous woman by many in Hollywood not named Marilyn Monroe.

Jessica Simpson is not plus sized, although some guys I know firmly believe she is. She did gain some boob and bum weight in recent years but I wouldn't put her in the plus sized category. I think she does look way better as a curvy woman as opposed to her youthful waify days.

Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce are examples of women that have nice curves but they wouldn't make the voluptuous scale as far as I'm concerned. Bootywise they both qualify. Cleavagewise neither qualify. The only time J-Lo ever qualified as a voluptuous woman was during her pregnancy. She gained a cup size or two and looked yummy mummy hot before she was ready to pop.

Nigella Lawson closely defines voluptuous IMO. She's proportionate with a nice waist-to-hip ratio and a rack to match the quality of her booty.
