Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" I find some larger men quite handsome and sexy. My SO is about 290 lbs, and 6 ft 1". He's not a tiny ... [snip!] ... never been physically attracted to the 'adonis' or the perfect man... Not to the extent of wanting to hop in bed with them. :P"


This exactly. Dh is about 290'ish and is almost 6'4". Chubby but I love being smothered in his hugs. Makes me feel secure and safe.

If you are a fat guy, you need to be funny. I've been attracted to fat guys when they made me laugh. Otherwise, I dont find fat attractive. Esp the apple figure.

I think in a women being curvy at a healthy weight is fine, but once you get past the level of being a healthy weight you need to stop and think about possible health risks, showing photos of your body all artistly isnt going to make you stay alive any sooner, and it does not give the right message to younger girls who are over weight! So should the accept being fat and harness this, always carrying weight around there hearts or bellies, lacking any motivation to work out, NO WAY! I think people who are over weight should be charged more for health insurance as well as smokers and so on.. Why do we banish people for smoking, we should banish people from over eating as well. Now as for men, I think that these photos are sad and gross they let themselves go and the same rule applies no one wants to be big like this I'm sure these men sit around wishing the could see there areas bellow or have women on top without belly in the way but they cant.. So they know better as do women The basic point is we should not be celebrating fat we should be with healthy habit and exercise, being at your target weight is what everyone should achieve for not settle for less.. ( unless you have medical issues that prevail)

I do not support people wanting to be unhealthy etc. However, I don't judge people on their weight or appearance. It's not my business. And if they're happy, let them be. It's not my body, or my life.

And the people who aren't overeating? Punish them anyways? Or people who gain weight due to certain medical treatments. Punish them too? And what do you mean "banish" them? Lol. You want to start an overeating police squad or something?

NM. You quoted a different person than I thought.

Carry on.

A fat person having an "artistic" photo of themselves is sending the wrong message to young fat people. What exactly would that wrong message be?



How exactly do you propose that we banish over-eating? What kind of personal freedoms would we have to revoke in such a circumstance.



The general air of your post would suggest that fat people don't deserve the same respect and body autonomy as other individuals. Perhaps this supposition is incorrect and you are more than free to correct me if I'm wrong.

i find my husband to be beautuful... does that mean i think he shouldn't slim down? no. i would find him more sexually appealing if he were say 100-150 lbs lighter (he knows this) but i love him and i can see the beautiy in his chub. ( he was 250 when we started dating and is like 370 now) he gained it with me. his relationship comfort chub, then the 1st pregnancy chub ( i gained like 44 and so did he) then 2nd pregnancy chub. he is making steps to get healthier they just arent huge steps.



husband at his biggest
