Who told these women they were Rubenesque?
Has that word now become just another way of saying BBW?
That isn't "rubenesque" dammit.

Grar... okay .. so just STRIKE FROM YOUR MIND me saying something about me being exactly rubenesque.

I'm like... 1/4 the size of those women.

Bleah. Just.... bleah. I understand the whole "accept your body" kind of thing, but... those women really need to go on a fucking diet.

Heh
"Accept your body, but diet to appease my aesthetic sensibilities."

Or am I misinterpreting?

Re: Heh
Wouldn't there then be a decision of whether to be considered a "healthy weight" or not?
I'm all for self confidence, but the other end of that is self delusion. You can talk and strut all you want on Jenny Jones' "I'm not too fat to dress the way I do" show: come back on the air with her when medical problems arise from your not doing something sensible and understanding how your body works and reacts to how you treat it.

Here I'm simply talking about the women pictured there. Are they going to say they would be less happy and less proud of the way they look if they lost weight? If they were offered a miracle diet that would put them in a healthier standing, would they reject it?

Re: Heh
Yep, you're misinterpreting. More like, "Diet to be able to walk a mile." "Diet to not croak of a heart attack at age forty." Stuff like that. I'm perfectly cognizant of the difference between "not as thin as Jennifer Aniston" and "morbidly obese."
