zài jiàn!

Jammy git! Looking forward to your field report.

She thought it said Demand Butter

It's not like we're taking the piss of random overweight women in the street. Its the fact that she's trying to promote her gluttonous lack of self control as  positive lifestyle that is reeping

Most put a bit of wieght on and it goes to the womanly bits - tits and arse. Combine that with some hefty support undergments and - Bingo! big boobs and shapely bootay.

Ive just been catching up with some Only Connects. Ive been totally distracted by Viccie Cohens boob cleavage in one episode.

Fat blokes just look shit. Comedy value is the best they can get get.

"Women can get away with carrying the extra stone or two". 

No they can't. They come across as slappers.

It's too much like hard work not to be fat, ain't it?

Blimey! I presume there's a helicopter overhead with that burd on an invisible wire!? Of course, the burd can be overweight but the blurk has to be buff so that he can actually lift her.

Either that or it's an 'action shot' where she's about to crush him.

Meant to put this photo in my OP as it's in the carousel on the ebay home page (at least for me as obviously cookies on my PC tell ebay I'm interested in extremely large underwear for camping purposes). Is there some weird Photoshopping going on here? - small head on warped, expanded body? These poor women are seriously ill, pysically and mentally. They need help, not celebrating. Although interesting that the ad is about self love - "love YOUR curves" and therefore narcissistic and self-indulgement. Very sad.

It does happen. There's a lass at work who has a slim face, even cheek bones - and looks absolutely lovely. But all of her post pregnancy weight has gone to abdomen. She must be carrying at least an extra two stone there which is completely invisible above her shoulders. 

I agree with the thread though. It's not good to normalise this level of obesity, but I can totally understand why marketers have done so as it is basically a highly visible group who have proved themselves already susceptible to marketing and have relatively poor impulse control.

Well I don't know about slappers but I agree that they can't get away with it anywhere near as easily as a bloke because women have smaller frames.

I think this fat normalisation is purely corporations trying to make money selling to them and extreme loonies like Trigglypuff hoping to carve an academic career out of being a porker.

I know three very fat women, two of them are on permanent diets, even though one does the use the "curvy" excuse, so they don't want to be fat. The third is at the morbidly obese level, can't climb stairs or walk more than a couple of hundred yards without a sit down, and has serious health problems; I don't know her well but doubt she's "embracing" her fatness either.

Quite a few of these fat activists make a very good living from their activism, one of the brand names used is "Health at Every Size". Like so many things in this insane world, they are completely in denial of facts and reality. Instead of telling them to stop being so fucking stupid, society as a whole would rather indulge their extremely unhealthy fantasies.

One of the most egregious is Ragen Chastain, a mordibly obese former dancer who now raises enormous amounts of money to """participate""" in ironman endurance events and encourages morbidly obese women to continue to damage their health.

There are loads of cases of squaddies with severe and permanent knee and hip problems.

Most of it is caused by the stupidly heavy kit that they are required to yomp around with.

I know it would cost money but the army really should be making every effort to lighten their kit as they are literally crippling their soldiers.

Look at this "mums" group being celebrated on so-called BBC News in their "100 women" series - porkers almost to a woman (Trigger warning: the stink of oestrogen about this piece is overpowering)

Best online friends meet for first time
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39528663

(Funnily enough, can't seem to locate their "100 men" series although I did find "10 men fighting for gender equality" as part of "100 women")

Grim isn't it.  it confirms all anecdotal observations I've seen over the last 10 years, from general observation of people, the other kids in my children's classes  (and the parents ) , the university area I frequently pass through.

Clinicians that I work with mention the vast increase in obesity and overweight levels. Including overweight we're now at at least 50% of adults in their 20s. A complete turnaround in 1 generation.

Last half-term I was being dragged around the Trafford Centre by preteen daughter, I was standing looking bored in all the clothes shops but noticed the very high proportion of fatties.  quite a few skinny parents / fat kids.  wtf.

Also, in new look  (a shop) there was a separate fat clothes section.  I kid you not.  this is a fucking teenager shop.  so in M&S you have "petite " (per una) range.  for the kids it's the fatty section

Obese women will:

- spend more on food

- have poor impulse control so will spend more on crap they don't need to make them feel better about the fact that they are seriously ill of their own doing

- ironically seem to spend more on makeup, as if painting yourself like Coco the fucking Clown in any way offsets the fact that your as wide as you are tall

- make big money for Big Pharma - they die younger but they'll have at least a couple of decades of chronic diseases with the pill requirements to match

- less drain on the pension funds as they'll die earlier

....they're good for business you see. Big ££ to be made all round.

There is a Dirty Dancing remake about to hit the big screens and the Burd in it is "shapley" with "curves" (overweight) 

Like the shite Ghostbusters remake with the feminist slant.

Poor guy's spine man vvvv

That would be really interesting.  I bet you'll hardly see any porkers in the over 30s / 40s age range. 

Unless you're going near hong Kong with it's western saturated lifestyle.  there will be fatty youngsters.

Report back!

It's interesting that this normalisation of female obesity seems to have coincided with an expectation on men to buff up and get in shape. At the same time as women are busily celebrating the fact that they're fat, young lads are hitting the gym and getting all insecure that they aren't more muscular. I think they even have a name for it now, Bigorexia or something like that.

On the one hand it could just be commercialism - sell big clothes and food to fat girls and sell supplements and protein powder to insecure blokes. But in a sane, functioning world, the buff kids would just go out and shag all the fit girls leaving the fatties to work out what they needed to do if they want to hook up with a Brad Pitt lookalike.

I think this is as much about the destruction of masculinity as the rise of girl power. Girls can be whatever they want, blokes have to conform to the image the girls set. Maybe it's revenge for the repression of women throughout history. Quite a lot like the destruction of whiteness we're starting to see - blacks calling for reparations and what have you.

I think that's a tad unfair. I suspect her clothes are sagging under the weight of water/gravity. See here for a more normal pic.

Yes, she is a lass who will probably have to watch her weight after children/as she gets older - but she's by no means obese.
