According to this article from The Daily News, fat chicks prefer to be called curvy women. Okay, I can understand some women don’t want to call themselves fat for whatever reason, but at least properly word it as overweight when you’re overweight. There’s a difference between an overweight girl and a girl with curves. Curvy women don’t have fat hanging all over the place, they have wider hips and thicker features (breasts, hips, etc). Curvy women don’t have pot bellies and rolls on their fuckin arms and back.
Not only are these terms misleading, a lot of women accept being over weight. They have this romantic idea that they “accept” who they are and aren’t “ashamed” of being fat. Okay, great, are you going to do something about it? Being overweight is a metabolic condition.
All these corny terms like “full-figured”, “average”, “normal” take away from the fact that being overweight is a fuckin medical condition. That’s wonderful that these women want to “embrace” their condition, but I don’t see people with arthritis or asthma defending and embracing their condition.
Being overweight isn’t the end of the world. Some people have a hard time keeping weight off, yes. Calling someone fat or overweight isn’t an insult, but I can understand how so many would rather be called otherwise. However, it’s dangerous to be “comfortable in your own shoes” with something like this.
Being curvy is one thing, but people like Adele, who speak on behalf of overweight women are pretty damn dangerous. Adele is a beautiful woman, but she’s still fat, that’s the fact. I’m not insulting her, I’m commenting on my observation. For her to come out and say she’s proud of it, encourages women to be proud of their “figure” and publicly say she doesn’t want to lose weight is a shame. She isn’t educated enough in the field of health to make sure encouragement.
Be honest with yourselves ladies. I’m not judging anyone, but please don’t resort to mental gymnastics to make yourselves feel better. It is what it is when it comes to your weight. Take a look in the mirror and make a non-biased observation, then take some action. Your health is the most important thing!
