The Myth Of The Medieval BBW

Ugly women, feminists, and fat chicks hate that men have attractiveness standards. It’s been as long as I can remember that mustachioed lezbo academics and their impressionable vajlings have been claiming that prehistoric drawings and figurines supposedly depicting fatass broads prove that female beauty standards are malleable and culturally conditioned. Riiiight. My first post-puberty boner at age fourteen for the cute, slender brunette down the street wouldn’t have happened without messages from TV telling me thin chicks are in.

Now it turns out all those ancestral BBW figurines that so enamor the sort of feminists who loathe male desire may not have been sex objects or symbolic mother/goddess figures at all. (Link via Dienekes.)

Made by Neolithic farmers thousands of years before the creation of the pyramids or Stonehenge, they depict tiny cattle, crude sheep and flabby people.

In the 1960s, some researchers claimed the more rotund figures were of a mysterious large breasted and big bellied “mother goddess”, prompting a feminist tourism industry that thrives today.

But modern day experts disagree.

They say the “mother goddess” figures – which were buried among the rubbish of the Stone Age town – are unlikely to be have been religious icons.

Many of the figures thought to have been women [by researchers] in the 1960s, are just as likely to be men.

Somewhere among my readership a fat chick just wept big bloated tears of ice cream.

Even more disheartening for the cultural conditioning crowd and BBW goddess true believers, there is evidence that prehistoric men carved plenty of sexy, slender babes for their viewing pleasure. And in mini-skirts, to boot! Yes, Cosmo B.C. must have been warping teenage minds 7,500 years ago.

“What about Rubens?!” squeal the fatties. Well, many of Rubens’ late medieval European contemporaries, such as Botticelli and Cranach, painted slender babes. And Rubens himself deviated from his fat fetish to paint normal weight women. Furthermore, it is likely that Rubens was not painting masturbation material for the masses. If he was, he probably would have ended up like Francisco de Goya, who *did* paint erotically posed slender women.

Goya was summoned by the Spanish Inquisition to explain who commissioned the “obscene” art.  I don’t know what Goya told them but he lost his job as the Spanish court painter, and this was as late as the early 19th century, though in southern Europe.  Goya’s nude maja comes close to modern erotic pinup art/photography and is the type of art that is most likely to represent the artist’s preferences or those of his contemporaries, but it doesn’t depict an overweight woman.  What were the chances of a painter coming up with something similar when the Church ruled?

If your paintings would have caused hard-ons to spring up among the drooling public, the Church would have had a word with you.

Bottom line: There is no evidence that Rubens’ paintings of unpleasantly plump women were representative of the kind of women that most men of his time considered hot. Except for a few weird outliers like the Mauritanians and fatty fuckers like Rubens, and allowing for some minor variation in female attractiveness standards between the major races, the vast majority of men across cultures and historical generations have lusted for thin young women (BMI 17 – 23) with 0.7 waist-hip ratios and feminine dispositions. No amount of railing against the “system” or engaging in sophistic pseudoacademic hocus-pocus is gonna change this fact.

  2. The “BBW” look has never been considered attractive. However, in the medieval era, it was rare. Its rarity meant that obese women could pair off when the small percentage of men who found that attractive. Also, it signified wealth in a time when it was very difficult for a man to rise in social class. Now that fatness is not rare and correlates with poverty and poor diet, fat chicks are screwed.

    Feminists who complain about overly thin female models have a solid point, which is that female models are absurdly thin, beyond what is attainable or healthy for most women, and thinner than most mens’ tastes. The model-thin, six-pack image has only been selected as the “cultural ideal” because it’s so difficult for normal girls to attain, keeping them perpetually insecure. (Average men prefer healthy thin-medium girls, not stick-thin waifs.) This manipulation is somewhat repulsive, but it’s not a cause for dishonestly representing “plus-size” women as paragons of beauty, but for promotion of the healthy medium-built image (Michelle Obama being a great example).

  6. It is really not that difficult to explain. (Straight) men choose their sexual partners based on their manifest fertility, women choose their sexual partners based on their manifest status. Fertility manifests itself in physical attributes–the relationship between the certain physical features and the degree of fertility they indicate is a biological fact that cannot be shaped to any non-trivial degree by cultural forces.

    To suggest otherwise would be like suggesting that physical indicators of strength were culturally determined, as opposed to the reality which is that height and prominent musculature are will always be perceived as objective indications of a person’s strength.

    —true. But feminists do realize the fashion industry is run by gay men, not straight men, so the women chosed most resemble the gay male ideal (i.e. teenage boys), right? And also because a rail thin figure=coat hanger, and on a coat hanger, everything looks good.

    —no one I know knows of this 6-pack image for girls. And no, it is not selected as a cultural ideal, it is selected because 1) gay men like girls who look like young boys; and 2) coat hangers make clothing look good.

  33. If we want to determine the power of culture vs. genetics in male preferences for women, then we need to do an experiment which asks a number of adopted males, their adoptive families, their biological parents and their friends to choose between different women of arguably equal attractiveness in our culture. It would have to be like Kim Karadashian vs Karolina Kurkova and so on (a simple survey can determine which women have equally broad appeal). You could then determine whose preferences correlates best with the adopted males.

    Granted, there would be no BBWs in the study, but such a study could provide a more precise estimate of how male preferences are formed.

    [editor: you’ll just have to trust me on this. there is no way in hell a man’s boner is influenced to any appreciable degree by anything other than that instantaneous blast of animal lust for a hot female bod that forms in the deepest nucleus of his hindbrain. executive summary: man looks, man likes, man chubs out.]

    Since so many people get their panties in a twist over this, it kind of deserves an empirical answer.

    [a lot of women project their attractiveness standards onto men, incorrectly coming to the conclusion that much of beauty is culturally conditioned, simply because for women much of what they find attractive in men *is* somewhat socially mediated, e.g. social proof and preselection. experiments have been done which show that women will find the same man more attractive when he’s surrounded by other women than when he’s alone or in the company of men.]

    [editor: a lot depends on how the deficit or excess of fat sits on a woman. for most women of average frame size on the upper end of the ideal bmi range, 10 pounds under her typical weight would either have a neutral effect on her looks or cause a small improvement. but those same women would likely take a hit to their attractiveness if an extra 10 pounds put them over bmi 23, and especially if the fat accumulated in unsightly pockets or in the face.]

    When black women are slender-to-medium in build, they are usually beautiful. Black obesity in the US has more to do with culture than genetics, and ghetto culture has virtually nothing to do with Africa; it inherits most of its “DNA” from the Southern lower class, which inherits most of its character from the British hinterlands in the 17th century.

    Ethiopian women, for example, are gorgeous. I think they’re up there with Polish and Croatian women.

    I’ve posted about this on my blog. I think there are more marriage-worthy black women because black women tend to be a lot more “correlated”. If they’re thin, they’re usually gorgeous and take good care of themselves. If they’re intelligent, they usually have culture and class. The correlations among desired traits are much stronger. This means that there are more “straight A” women in the black community than among whites. There are also probably more “straight F” women (fat, loud, violent and mean ghetto bitches) but they don’t matter from the perspective of one seeking a marriage partner. From the perspective of marriage-worthiness, a straight-F ghetto girl or methed-out redneck is equivalent (marriage value = 0) to a Sex and the City yuppie-slut with A’s in looks, intelligence, and education but F’s in couth, culture, and chastity.

    I watched a pbs (!) special on art and the human body, and they talked about (though they never made this point, the evidence presented itself) how when cultures had great technological leaps in art, suddenly the human body as depicted came closer to our porn star images today.

    At one point, Roman sculpture took a huge leap—mostly when Egypt was conquered, and the sculpture techniques and mathetmatical precision in art there was fused with Roman Art.

    Roman art then was able to sculpt bodies that were beyond human bodies—i.e. bodies without tailbones so that the space could be there for the added six pack muscles, etc., that were more “beautiful” than older bodies.

    So much of roman insecurities about bodies vis a vis art was driven by a literal impossible image—you couldn’t remove your tailbone or tone it like the sculpture.

    Yet today we almost can do it—-plastic surgery can make big busted small waisted women a reality.

    It was only technology that prevented the creation in art of the perfect woman. the human mind always had it; the human hand just couldn’t make it yet.

    I concur: Michelle Obama is not attractive by any measure that I recognize and use. She is, however, being very strongly pushed as the next Jacqueline Kennedy, which is amusing but ultimately annoying. Cindy McCain, even without an adjustment for age, wins the Presidential spouse contest for 2008 easily; Ann Romney would also have finished several laps ahead of Mrs. Obama.

    As for the topic at hand, is attraction hardwired? That I don’t know—whether it is or not, I would suggest that the last decade or two has seen efforts at rewriting that attraction. There may have been a certain amount of success; for my part, I still like pretty much what I’ve always liked.

    Could the medieval BBW exist outside of say, high class circles where there was enough food and idle time to get fat? I wouldn’t imagine that working dawn ’til dusk five or six days a week would leave a lot of opportunity to get plump, unless one was genetically predisposed to it.

    The ‘fat acceptance movement’ is a joke, and will go nowhere.

    Why? That would be Horseman #3 : Globalization.

    A quick glance of any Latino or Indian Bollywood television shows will reveal that these cultures are happy to insert a hot woman whereever possible, even in totally non-sexual roles.

    For example, on Univision and other Latino TV channels, even the WEATHER girls are incredibly hot. Solid 9s and 10s.

    Go to YouTube and search for ‘Jackie Guerrido’. When a woman is hot enough to get you to watch year-old weather forecasts in a language you don’t even speak, that is something.

    So the ‘fat acceptance’ movement will merely make this fraction of Americans the laughingstock of the whole world, and deservedly so.

    Michelle Obama is NOT attractive in relation to Laura Bush, Cindy McCain, or even Condi Rice (all of whom are 10-15 years older than Michelle Obama).

    Personally I’d leave Michelle Obama alone if the media wasn’t pushing her so hard as some paragon of new American beauty.

    I know. Why can’t she be ‘matronly’ like Katherine Jackson, or something?

    And it is not only about race. Condi Rice had a bad face but a surprisingly fit body for a woman of 55.

    This only hastens the distaste that average people have for the media, though. The great thing about extremists is that they always go too far, and court their own disaster as a result.

    Ladies,

    Go to your local porn store, and ask for which pornos are the best sellers/renters for the straight male market. Rent them and watch for two or three hours, fast forwarding to the babes and assess their bodies. I think that you’ll find hourglass figures with medium-to-large breasts, and firm&shapely derrieres pretty much rule the day.

    There is a porn-star’s picture ladies. Look hard, hit the gym, and emulate.

    I’m just unsure of why men think women don’t judge men on their looks, and ahem…endowments.

    I score high in both your earlier judgment categories. Not so bad in looks either though not spectacular. Tall and dominant looking though, which are actually more important.

    What women judge men by has only tagential relevance as to who they’ll screw. Girl talk is crap.

    Men’s looks matter only way down the pile of things for the large majority of girls. They think otherwise; they’re wrong. They act differently. Women are attracted to men with a dominant edge. Playful dominance especially.

    Some women want more muscles and some want more brain muscles. Some want gobs of money and others want social do gooder loving of him. But by and large women want playful dominance in a man; a man that can play her emotions and take her on dramatic roller coaster emotional rides. Make her feel ecstatic and worried about loosing him.

    Cock size is mostly a poor created fetish that leads some women to think that the really big dicked man is more dominant. Almost all female sexual nerve endings in the vagina leaving aside the clitoris and pussy lips are very close to the entrance. Event the G spot is only a couple of inches in. Cock size is, except perhaps for the very poorly endowed, largely or entirely a psychological matter and one that’s largely porn induced in girls today. I’m saying this as someone a lot thicker and also longer than average.

    Feminists as part of their campaign to belittle men under the banner of “judging them just as much” have added this area fairly recently. As though women haven’t always judged men more , they’re now just adding additional explicit dimensions to make their negative judging that much greater.

  169. Where do you stand on the issue of plus-size models, such as those featured in Lane Bryant ads? They are not Rubenesque, they retain the .7 waist-to-hip ratio, yet they probably exceed the maximum BMI of 23 that you cite.

    I agree wholly with you that male sexual preferences are not at all influenced by environmental influences, but I think you underestimate the variability of males, a principle which I know you know holds across categories – from height to IQ to specific sexual turn-ons. Those men who prefer women with 54-inch wide asses riddled with cellullite folds are surely outliers, or, less politely, freakish fetishists. But guys like me, who prefer Crystal Renn or Kate Dillon to Alessandra Ambrosio, constitute a minority perhaps, but a significant minority nonetheless, and women who are not thin, yet not obese either, would do well to remember we exist, instead of taking for granted that thin=beautiful.

    By the way, I’m white, and I’ve met plenty of white guys who agree with me that Victoria’s Secret models are too thin. While environmental influences do not affect a guy’s yearnings, they do affect whether he chooses to reveal them to others, particularly his buddies, who he fears will accuse him of “going hogging” if states a preference for somewhat zaftig, jiggly women.*

    Also, I agree with Thursday that “your own personal idiosycracies [are] showing through here”. I have noticed a tight anecdotal correlation between hard-charging, jerkish, type-A guys like yourself and a brutal intolerance for women not being thin.

Women willing to pose nude for male painters and sculptors were rare in the 15th century and for obvious reasons heterosexual men were more likely to encounter such women than gay ones were. Botticelli, himself homosexual, was a bit of an anomaly in this respect.

    But Thursday is greatly mistaken. I don’t know whether M. ever had any sexual experience with women, and on balance think he probably did not (or he would have had a better idea of what women look like without clothes on), but he did not hate women and in fact sometimes fell in love with them. I’m not convinced that he was truly homosexual, unlike Leonardo who certainly was – but whose women always look feminine in their portraits.

  199. Clio:

    Whatever Michelangelo’s attitude towards women in real life, he did such horrible things to the female form that I can only conclude he hated it. He did have a close relationship with the older Vittoria Colonna, but she was more of a spiritual instructor to him than a romantic interest, in contrast to his erotic interest in handsome young men like Tommaso dei Calvalieri or Cecchino dei Bracci. Now, Michelangelo was iron willed, ferociously devout, and noted for his “monklike chastity,” and many of the young men he was interested in were strongly heterosexual, so it is open to doubt whether he actually had much of any sex with anyone. But he seems to have been pretty clearly homosexual in orientation.

    As for Botticelli, he was accused of homosexuality, but that was a fairly common charge to be levelled against one’s enemies and Botticelli had made a few over that years. He reputedly had a huge crush on Simonetta Vespucci and requested that he be buried at her feet. But again that is kind of ambiguous, as, for example, we know that gay fashion designers can frequently be devoted to their models despite having their sexual interests elsewhere. So, the best we can really say is that Botticelli’s sexuality is unclear.

    I think you are basically right.

    When women start to run up their body count they “loosen up” in many ways. They gain confidence in the way that all their parts kind of unfold and open up when the time comes and most of them lose their fear of getting stretch-injuries. Then, they might start admitting their deepest truths about this matter
    If they have a kid, no worries. Indeed, that might be the answer to the question, “Why do skinny frail Human Males have a penis 4 times the size of a 500 gorilla?

    Penis size matters, of course. On sites like Match.com, the only attribute of male appearance that women openly mandate as a requirement is height. Usually above 6’0″. The main reason for this (although this is unsaid) is penis size.

    Well, let’s just say that I scored a respectable 8.2 on Amihotornot.com, am 6’3″ with very little body fat, and have been in small-time catalog photos for vendors selling suits and dress shirts.

    But the point is, I did poorly until Game. Sure, maybe it was because I merely learned not to be shy about Kino escalation, or did not know how to identify IOIs, or whatever. Still…things were bad before Game.

    Game is MUCH more valuable than looks, for a man. Few would dispute that.

    Cannon’s Canon,

    In this world, we have seen that imbalances can last for a long time, and seem totally normal to most people. But when they correct, they correct fast. People then, in hindsight, wonder how anyone thought the bubble was normal. We saw this with the USSR, dot-com bubble, housing bubble, and Al-Qaeda network (which really is decimated relative to what it once was).

    The Four Horsemen of Male Vengeance, that will converge by 2020 to correct the lopsided, abnormal, and quite accidental power advantage that women currently have over men are :

    1) Game

    2) Sex Technologies (3D/VR holograms, tactile interfaces, sexbots, etc.). Anyone who says this cannot compete with real women fails to consider that the artificial/virtual women will be engineered to be 10/10+s, while most real women are in the 4-7 range. This will greatly destroy the SMV of all women who are below an 8 in looks, forcing all women to learn how to provide real *love* to a man if they want any man to give them the time of day, as that is the only possible thing they have to offer that a sexbot cannot.

    Since a Real 10 > Virtual 10 > Real 7, consider how the world changes when the ‘Virtual 10′ can be mass-produced on the order of millions of units..

    3) Globalization (Islam, mostly). Muslims reproduce, and SWPLs do not. A Muslim woman at age 60 might have 10 grandkids, while an SWPL woman might have just 1. This causes a 10:1 population ratio tipover within just the 40 years subsequent to both women being single at age 20.

    4) Men taking action to starve the beast (avoid marriage, move to Asia, work less hard due to high taxes on financial gains, go on organized strikes from work, etc.)

    These are the Four Horsemen of Male Justice, all reaching critical mass by 2020. The messenger of these, me, thus becomes the Fifth Horseman.

    I have written detailed cases for each in the past. I’ll try to search for those in the archives.

    Also, I am going to write a big detailed analysis of these on my own blog, within the next 30 days.

    The big difference is that women get approached, while men have to DO the approaching.

    That is why a man could have everything going for him on paper, and still get nowhere if his personality is introverted. While an extroverted man will do better with far fewer credentials in looks, wealth, intelligence, etc.

    Whereas a woman like FeministX, who is a 5, can still get some male attention (which she in turn over-interprets as serious interest).

    “a straight-F ghetto girl or methed-out redneck is equivalent”
    —lol on Cless Alevein’s sad attempt at cultural equivalency.

    Kid, you reek of SWPLerness. Go back to the Daily Kos.

    The full context of this was as follows:

    —————————————————————————

    I think there are more marriage-worthy black women because black women tend to be a lot more “correlated”. If they’re thin, they’re usually gorgeous and take good care of themselves. If they’re intelligent, they usually have culture and class. The correlations among desired traits are much stronger. This means that there are more “straight A” women in the black community than among whites. There are also probably more “straight F” women (fat, loud, violent and mean ghetto bitches) but they don’t matter from the perspective of one seeking a marriage partner. From the perspective of marriage-worthiness, a straight-F ghetto girl or methed-out redneck is equivalent (marriage value = 0) to a Sex and the City yuppie-slut with A’s in looks, intelligence, and education but F’s in couth, culture, and chastity.

    —————————————————————————

    I’m not asserting any sort of cultural equivalency between (a) the fat, mean ghetto bitch, (b) the redneck meth-head, and (c) the Sex and the City yuppie slut. I’m only pointing out the fact that all 3 have exactly the same level of marriage worthiness: zero.

  295. I’m surprised that “More to Love” show (a.k.a. “Fat Bachelor) hasn’t been mentioned yet.

    Fox, as usual, knows exactly what they’re doing and came up with their norm (something that’s both great for ratings but bad for society.)

    The marketing for that show was quite nauseous as it glorified very obese women as being “normal” and “still desirable” (obviously to cater to the ever-growing blubber that watches TV in America.) And then found a young, very large 300+ pound guy (who admitted to having little dating experience) to spit out all of the “I want a woman for who she is on the inside/I like girls of this size” garbage cliches as he chased this herd for weeks on end.

    Now all of the idealism that “some men prefer those kinda girls” is even more ingrained into the country’s psyche. And females who could really use a dose of reality will continue to be content with an unhealthy, unattractive appearance that will only attract the men who can’t get the girls they really want (or the ones who don’t have the confidence or desire to do so)

  298. The original post is old, old news. Some of us in the spiritual community got a good laugh from it when the news first came out because it confirmed some hunches that some of us had long ago.

    They were many, and almost none of them stood up, as an idol would. There also weren’t any stands or carriers for them. We suspected that they were either children’s toys or sacrificial symbols…maybe both. If I had to make a guess though, I’d say they were teethers. They look like something a baby would cut their teeth with. That would also explain why they’d be thrown away in the trash, when they were chipped, worn, or broken, rather than kept or buried respectfully.

    None of this negates the fat actual idols of some cultures, but still…that some people jumped on a fat baby figure as a goddess representation rather than at best, an offering to a goddess, was kind of sad. It’s an example of something being taken out of context in the west, and bandied about as an excuse to abandon one’s own culture’s ideals in favor of some generic okayness with everything, regardless of how impractical or even harmful.

    Aoefe says, “Yes women obsess for shizzle but they get encouragement to eat from women not men. Women want to be the thinnest in their group they don’t want anyone skinnier than they are. What I’m saying is true but I wonder if any woman will back me up on that…hmmmmm.”

    I will. I and my daughter have entered a whole new world of b.s. from women since we lost enough weight that people notice. I don’t know if I mentioned the cookie debate with my daughter’s teacher last year. This year, her main teachers are fit, thank goodness.

    For the guys dissing Michelle Obama, dudes…she’s in her 40’s. Stop eating the cougar hype. In her 40’s a woman should not be being judged on the same scale as 20 year olds.

    Besides, whatever others may say about her looks, she’s married to the damned President of the U.S. You’re not the President. You’re basically putting down a woman who is so far out of your league that you look pathetic insulting her from the point of view of near insignificance.

  301. Spunk, I’ll be the first to say that generally, men prefer women to be smaller, but I would stop short of claiming that men who like big women are unmanly. Some like big women because they are big men themselves. Just because their woman is bigger than some men doesn’t mean that she is too big for any man.

    This is, in my opinion, one of the blind spots of multiculturalism. Everybody starts being required to conform to one generic standard, as if all humans have the exact same genetic potential.

    Some people are tall. No amount of wishful thinking is going to make everybody the same height just to make some other people feel less intimidated by the tall. The same is true of body frame. It may not be healthy for anyone to be carrying too much fat, but what that is depends on their genes, not your desires.

    So if you prefer women who are skinnier than the norm or fatter than the norm, it’s kind of irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. What’s important is that people don’t adopt behaviors that are unhealthy for them (overeating or starving) because of some screwed up generic template.

    That screwed up thinking is what kept me fat for 14 years. Treating myself like an African/Native American woman who needs more activity and different food than a western European is what started taking the pounds off.

    At the end of it, I still won’t be most White guys’ cup of tea. I’m well on my way to the “Klingon” look myself…and whoever doesn’t like it can kiss my ass. I’m doing what’s best for me, and even though “most men” won’t like it, I only have one vagina, so I only need one man.

    Until the day I am married, I will continue to do anything I can to perpetuate this idea that male preference for thinness is culturally constructed to demean women. I also support restaurant and fast food culture and all efforts to make cooking seem like a dull, outdated and opressive activity for women.

    I can’t decide if you really hold these views, or if you’re simply trolling and this is a satire of feminist thought. I’ll bite though.

    I can point to thousands of images of idealized females from different cultures – Indian, Minoan, Greek, Celtic, African – which all show a healthy (non-obese) body. Likewise, I can point to many examples where obese men were shamed into losing weight.

    Restaurant and fast food “culture” can’t exist without someone to do the cooking. It’s only feasible to eat out every night if you live in an urban environment – something which the people who raise the food which goes to restaurants can’t do.

    It’s also far more expensive to eat out than to cook. The amount of food wasted in a typical fast food joint is shocking. Consistently eating fast food is extremely unhealthy.

  315. Faolan, one of the primary principles of social engineering is that you have to have a direction to point your sheeple towards. “Lose weight” is not a direction. It is a result. To get them going in that direction, “Eat real food,” is a better order.

    Shaming people into not eating the equivalent of industrial lubricant (a cause) would work much better than shaming them for being fat. If they don’t know the phood is what’s making them fat, and think it’s about just the calories and not the type of food, then all the fat bashing in the world isn’t going to help them.

    They’ll lose weight for awhile, have mad cravings and/or get depressed, and then gain it all back eating more junk. They’d be better off with a plan that will last for life, and that if they go back on, they’ll suffer more than weight gain.

    Why do you figure that is?

    Do you think it happened because of fat acceptance?

    Did fat acceptance put hydrogenated vegetable oils on the market?

    Does the fat acceptance movement own any fast food chains?

    Did they convince women that the ability to cook a nutritious meal was not a necessary home skill?

    Come now…You and I both know none of the fat happened in a social vacuum. You’re attacking the result, not the cause, which is backwards.

    “Not a good analogy. And in fact, properly “shamed,” girls/women will take measures to avoid obesity before it hits them.”

    What measures? Where is this information supposed to come from?

    I had to dig deep on the internet and be sick and watching the food channel at exactly the right time, to find out what measures would work for me.

    How is someone poor who didn’t study biology supposed to figure it out? Telepathy?

    Do you figure being told they’re ugly will teach them how to render chicken fat?

    “And parents will hopefully keep an eye on their kids’ weight so that they grow up into attractive adults. Never underestimate the power of gluttony and sloth over the human psyche, and shame as the only effective weapon against it.”

    Yeah, I learned alot about the human liver, and what it does with hydrogenated oils from being called a fat ass.

    “I don’t call them worthless; I call them repulsive. Hate the sin, love the sinner”

    That sounds like when my parents say that they don’t believe they’re better than other people just because they’re sure those people are going to hell.

    PA: Sounds nice, but it’s not true. Roissy has changed many a beta into a something closer to an alpha just by runing this site. And haven’t you been trying to change David Alexander into something more in your image?

    O: No, I haven’t been trying to change DA; the only person who can do that is himself. What I’ve done is offer commonsense and highly effective advice in the form of counterarguments to many of his inane statements.

    As for Roissy’s assistance to Betas, w/all due respect I think its an apples and oranges comparison. Roissy genuinely cares about Men; he shows bitter contempt of fat Women, there’s a difference. Compare and contrast the varying posts. Now again, I don’t have a dog in this fight, it doesn’t impact my life one way or another. All I’m saying is that Roissy, and you, for that matter, can afford to indulge in this “Hate On The Fatty” thing, because both of you can get laid pretty much whenever you want, w/the kinds of Women you want. However, if the rest of the guys reading and commenting along aren’t in the same boat, then thy might want to consider doing something that actually gives them a better return on investment, because hating on fatties ain’t gonna make them better at Game, and thus get laid with the Women of their choice. In short, it’s a waste of time and a Fool’s Errand.

    I say again: neither Mystery Method nor The Game says anything about attempting to “shame” anyone into doing someone for you. Both books are geared toward helping the reader change himself. Period. I read both books, studied them closely, applied what they offered and got the desired results. And just about any Man reading this-including Dave Alex-can do same. The. End.

    PA: Again, please read carefully — I’m not interested in picking up women so I am not going to visit Yugoslava. What I am interested in is repairing my habitat, thus while commenting on some blog, I will make arguments aganst obesity.

    O: Where those who need to hear it most won’t know or care about your or anyone else’s “efforts” to “repair their habitat”. PA, please. I’m with Nicole on this one, if you’re really serious about obesity in America go rally all the guys here and file a class action lawsuit against guys like Archer Daniels-Midland or something like that. There are plenty of lawyers who can do the work pro bono. Or go and become a fitness instructor at an all ladies’ gym. Do something constructive, if you really, truly give a damn.

    I’m sure that one of the ways they lost it was eating fake food. It’s apparently a reversible condition, except in the rare person with a legit eating disorder.

    …and I believe that people with that disorder are much, much more rare than is currently hyped. I’ve got more issues than the magazine table in a dentists’ office, and lost any desire or ability to overeat within a couple of months of mildly naturalizing my diet. I didn’t even go extreme paleo.

    Everybody I know who’s done it reports the same. People who used to eat a giant bowl of cereal in the morning are happier with an omelette and a salad, and do not get hungry or have any snacking cravings until the afternoon.

    Some people can eat unnatural phood without breaking their body’s checks, but many people can’t. I think there’s something specific to African, Asian, and Native American people that we have to have something that’s in foods that have saturated fats to trigger a fullness sensation based on calories rather than food weight or volume.

    Well, when fat becomes an insult used against people who are skinny or underweight, it’s difficult for someone to know what the truth is. They’ve been lied to so much.

    Girls who (like me) were not ugly or fat but just not socially preferred, surrounded by shrill faggots who actually judge women’s beauty by their social status since they can’t muster the testosterone to select for themselves, will come to the understanding that how they look doesn’t matter. They will never measure up. They’re being alienated and have no chance.

    It’s not until they get out of faggotland and around some men who do have balls that they realize the truth. Then, if they are already fit, or get fit, they have a chance of getting a guy whose idea of fat is more clinical and less social.

Addictive foods = eat huge amounts = huge profits. Screwed body chemistry = sick all the time = need the doctor and pharmaceuticals all the time = huge profits. That’s why once processed food has hold of you it’s very hard to break the addiction. Unless you take specific steps reboot your metabolism. It’s like reimaging your body chemistry back to its factory settings.

    Simply become a racist regarding food and don’t eat anything white.

    No white rice, no white bread, no milk and no dairy products.

    If you can eat at least 50% raw, organic, multi-colored veggies that will help even more. Greens are especially good but you need the multi-color for the various nutrients found in each.

    Exercise daily for one hour, and you will see the pounds melting off.

  373. I have to say I mostly agree with this post. Except that it’s obviously not true, from what I see every day, that BMI and WHR (within certain parameters – if you ‘look fat’ it’s a dealbreaker for many, but it doesn’t matter what your actual BMI is. A girl with a BMI of 21 can look chubby depending on her frame, weight distribution, body fat %) make a huge difference in the sexual selection of most guys. I have a friend who’s very much in demand, an athletic flirty blonde.
    She’s 5’3″ and 140 lbs (BMI: 26.6). Her measurements are 36-32-38 (WHR: .84). But she has a flat stomach, a perky ass, the most perfect breast I’ve ever seen. Guys are falling all over themselves every day hitting on her, proposing marriage. And they all say she looks ‘too skinny’ when she gets down to 130 at the beginning of field hockey season…

    As far as clothing sizes, as roissy said they vary wildly from store to store. Calling someone a ‘size 8’ is utterly meaningless. I have clothing labeled from 00 all the way up to 12 (in vintage).

    And clothes are getting bigger every year. In 1999 I measured 30-22-32 and fit a size 0-2 in most mainstream stores (Gap, Limited, Victoria’s Secret).

    Now, I measure 31-23-34 and am completely sized-out of all ‘women’s’ stores. I barely fit a 00 at stores geared towards teens (and my arms and legs are too long to shop in children’s – I am a perfect size 12-14 in most kid’s brands). If I don’t gain significant weight in a few years I wonder how I will shop for anything that isn’t stretchy.

    Opioid peptide
    Opioid Peptides are short sequences of amino acids that mimic the effect of opiates in the brain. Opioid peptides may be produced by the body itself, for example endorphins, or be absorbed from partially digested food (casomorphins, exorphins and rubiscolins). The effect of these peptides vary, but they all resemble opiates. The opioid food peptides have lengths of typically 4-8 amino acids. The body’s own opioids are generally much longer.
    Brain opioid peptide systems are known to play an important role in motivation, emotion, attachment behaviour, the response to stress and pain, and the control of food intake.

  389. Casomorphins and Gliadomorphins- The Food Opioids
    Dear Friends,
    I just received the two links below from a friend suffering from this exact issue. These morphine-like substances (casomorphins and gliadomorphins) that we derive from dairy and wheat, respectively, are critical to our understanding of the power of these two foods. They help to explain why 75% of the calories in the standard American diet (SAD) come from these wheat and dairy alone. Food addiction is a very real thing and these opiods play a huge role.

    As noted in one of the articles, many autistic children are completely addicted to wheat and dairy, which is consistent with the idea that we become addicted to what will make us ill (cigarettes, drugs, alcohol and food ). There are no healthy addictions and food is no exception. If an individual feels like they cannot give up cheese or bread, then they are very likely to be having a problem with one of these foods. I counsel people like this all of the time and can use that dependency to help them see that those very foods are a major contributor to their IBS, arthritis, depression, or other typical signs associated with food intolerance. And withdrawal from these foods can lead to classic drug-withdrawal symptoms as the articles below point out.

    These sedating compounds are also the single biggest contributing factor to post-meal drowsiness. I have proven this in my own life as I used to become extremely sleepy after meals starting in my late 30’s. My wife was beginning to think I was a narcoleptic. I would literally pass out during our favorite TV show. I no longer exhibit this annoying and even dangerous symptom now that I am gluten and dairy-free. In fact, it has been stated that more people die from falling asleep at the wheel while driving than from alcohol-related accidents. What could be doing this? What could keep us from doing the most important thing (staying awake) while driving down the Interstate at 65-80 mph? Now you know. Throw alcohol into the mix and you have a tragic situation just waiting to happen.

    We need to become very familiar with these two terms. I have yet to casually meet anyone who has heard them over the seven years following my first encounter with them in the literature…not a doctor nor a lay person. Amazing. And yet they play a vital role in the lives of the multitudes, contributing to food addiction, clinical depression, chronic fatigue, caffeine addiction, autism, highway deaths, and more.

  390. High-fat, high-sugar foods alter opioid receptors-new study
    7/28/09, Portland, OR. Overconsumption of fatty, sugary foods leads to changes in brain receptors, according to new animal research at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The new research results are being presented at the 2009 annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior (SSIB). The results have implications for understanding bulimia and other binge eating disorders.

    Dr. Bello and colleagues report that either continuous eating or binge eating a high fat, high sugar diet alters opioid receptor levels in an area of the brain that controls food intake. Opioids are a family of chemicals with actions similar to those of morphine; however, opioids exist naturally in the brain and have been linked to feelings of pleasure and euphoria. “These results are interesting because we saw changes in opioid receptor gene expression in a brain area that controls how much we eat during a meal”, said Bello. The new findings suggest that overconsumption of highly palatable foods maintains bingeing by enhancing opioids in the brain, and that increased opioids could be a factor involved in binge eating disorders. These findings may help to understand the biological basis of eating disorders.

  391. Opioids and food intake: distributed functional neural pathways?
    Abstract:
    Agonists of the mu, delta, kappa and ORL(1)opioid receptors increase food intake while opioid receptor blockade decreases food intake. The majority of the collected data related to opioids and feeding has led to the speculation that opioids are involved in meal maintenance and orosensory reward; however, some data suggest that opioids may impact feeding associated with energy needs. Based on the wide distribution of CNS opioid receptors and the presence of other neuropeptides in the vicinity of opioidergic pathways, it seems likely that opioids affect multiple feeding systems. For example, opioids in the hindbrain might be involved in both sensory and metabolic aspects of food intake, those in the amygdala in processing of ’emotional’ properties of foods, and those in the hypothalamus in energy needs. In this review we present data which support functional diversity of opioids in feeding behavior.Copyright 1999 Harcourt Publishers Ltd.

    Abstract
    Humans eat for many reasons, including the rewarding qualities of foods. A host of neurotransmitters have been shown to influence eating behavior and some of these appear to be involved in reward-induced eating. Endogenous opioid peptides and their receptors were first reported more than 30 years ago, and studies suggesting a role of opioids in the regulation of food intake date back nearly as far. Opioid agonists and antagonists have corresponding stimulatory and inhibitory effects on feeding. In addition to studies aimed at identifying the relevant receptor subtypes and sites of action within the brain, there has been a continuing interest in the role of opioids on diet/taste preferences, food reward, and the overlap of food reward with others types of reward. Data exist that suggest a role for opioids in the control of appetite for specific macronutrients, but there is also evidence for their role in the stimulation of intake based on already-existing diet or taste preferences and in controlling intake motivated by hedonics rather than by energy needs. Finally, various types of studies indicate an overlap between mechanisms mediating drug reward and palatable food reward. Preference or consumption of sweet substances often parallels the self-administration of several drugs of abuse, and under certain conditions, the termination of intermittent access to sweet substances produces symptoms that resemble those observed during opiate withdrawal. The overconsumption of readily available and highly palatable foods likely contributes to the growing rates of obesity worldwide. An understanding of the role of opioids in mediating food reward and promoting the overconsumption of palatable foods may provide insights into new approaches for preventing obesity.

    Body fat percentage and BMI are not linked in any meaningful way. Low BMI and fertility are not significantly linked – underweight women are as likely to get pregnant as ideal-weight women, although they have a slightly higher rate of complications. Overweight and obese women have many more problems in both these areas than underweight women.

    I am underweight (BMI 17.5), with 19% body fat (close to the female ideal of 20-22%) last time I was checked. When I started my regular menses I had a BMI of 14.3. I have a reproductive system that seems in better working order (very regular periods all my life, no conditions diagnosed) than most of my ideal weight to overweight friends (many of whom are highly irregular periods due to poor diet, eating disorders, or hormonal conditions like PCOS and progesterone deficiency).

    Let’s not forget that ‘underweight’ and ‘overweight’ don’t mean ‘what I don’t think looks sexy’. They are medical definitions based on BMI, not body fat percentage. All runway models, most VS models, and many celebs considered ‘hot’ are technically underweight.

    Sure, with a BMI of 30+ you’re medically obese, and you probably appear ‘fat’ to many people. But it says little about your actual body fat percentage.

    I think a fair approximation for the ideal female nude in terms of body weight throughout history would be a classical Roman woman or what one commonly saw in pin ups of the 40s through 60s. In practice, women with such figures never have trouble finding mates either.

    There is also a mathematical formula for the beauty of a face as well as beauty of the body and as long as the key proportions remain as close as possible to these ratios, such people are considered to be beautiful.

    Although in practice we deviate considerably from these ideals in selecting mates, all of us recognize them and instinctively gravitate towards them. It seems to be hard wired. In this regard Roissy is always correct.

    Usually creepy, bitter guys will say women really want whatever they aren’t.

    Average income guys = women only want rich guys.

    Short guys = women only want tall guys.

    Quiet guys = women only want loud, extroverted guys.

    Little/average penis size guys = women only want guys with oversized penises.

    Same pattern.

    So in whose interest is it to say that size DOESN’T matter? Guys with large cocks? I find that doubtful.

    And even if small penis guys are saying it out of bitterness, that doesn’t mean it’s not true or that they’re the only ones saying it. They, out of bitterness, along with guys who are well endowed, out of pride, can both be saying it precisely because it’s true.

    Looks are, say, a 10% factor for men while they are a 95% factor for women.

    That is a CH and PUA vast exaggeration.

    I don’t think looks are even at 95% for pickup. Maybe 85-90%.

    For relationships I’d day looks are 75% or so for men. Really it’s better expressed as a matter of threshold. A man will have a threshold or maybe really two. One below which he just won’t go. And another which makes him pretty happy, realistically, when he isn’t mouthing off macho like to his friends. Between the two thresholds looks matter a LOT. Once the higher one is reached, I think a girl’s personality matters about as much to most guys for LTRs as her looks. That is if say a guy has an 8 higher threshold he’ll turn down a 9 for LTRs if she’s a constant drama queen to deal with, gamable yes but work work work, in favor of a fun and energetic 8.

    As for girls, they’ll tell you that looks matter much more to them than 10%. They won’t be entirely wrong about that. Girl’s can often read male dominance, edginess and so on in a guy’s face and the way he holds himself physically to a significant degree, and as well the opposite, can often read dorkiness or wussiness in appearance. So girls will call this masculine aura a guy give off “looks”.

    I do think that Roissy is not the norm in this case.

    unfortunately for your fat acceptance sympathies, my tastes in women are very much the norm for men. and studies have consistently backed up my version of the norm rather than yours.

    As I said earlier, most men (especially men with high-T levels) would prefer a few pounds over to a few pounds under.

    you are wrong. most men, high or low T, prefer thinner girls to fatter girls, your bf’s outlier preferences to the contrary notwithstanding. some high T men may fuck more fatties than low T men, but they are also fucking more slender chicks, because very high T men are so horny they lose their powers of discrimination. see: any prison population.

    Most guys I know think that I’m fine where I am, but wouldn’t mind/would prefer a few extra pounds (at 5’7″ and 122 lbs, I’m pretty average).

    no matter what he says, if you were to gain 10 pounds your bf would slowly treat you less well. he would find himself becoming less attracted to you. for every additional pound over the first 10 pounds that you gain, a concomitant reduction in your bf’s desire to fuck you and do nice things for you would follow. eventually you will bloat to the point of no return, and your bf in his abject revulsion will cheat on you, withdraw his affection so completely that he is effectively single, or dump you.
    this is the way to bet.
    of course, it is possible your bf is a genuine fatty fucker. in which case, you can eat yourself to gluttonous merriment and only have to compete with the other 100 million fatass American women out there.

    Roissy said “most men would sooner date a woman who was 10 pounds underweight than a woman 10 pounds overweight.”, not under their ideal weight or over their ideal weight.

    Their ideal weight is already skewed to ‘underweight’ (as defined by BMI or whatever), so of course if they have to chose 10 more or 10 less they’d chose 10 more. That’s because 10 less is going from thin to gross thin.

  431. On Penis Size:

    The only types of people I know who consistently list “large penis size” as a prerequisite for enjoyable and orgasmic sex are gay men, lower class black women and sexually promiscuous older white women.

    It seems that literally everyone else, except men who are EXTREMELY insecure about their penis size, doesn’t particularly care.

    Here’s why:

    [1] Misconceptions heaped on the minds of the young by pop culture and the proliferation of porn in recent generations give the impression that the ability to please a woman is predicated on large penis size and just wildly driving into her vagina with complete abandon.

    [2] As Roissy has noted, women initially rate men by their overall qualifcations. Wise women that I’ve known [in both the biblical and personal senses] have stated that a man’s penis size wasn’t indicative of his sexual prowess. Along racial and cultural lines, girls that I’ve talked to have often complained that “dudes with big dicks overestimate their sex-swagger”. I’d discuss this further, but I now how well conversations about race and culture go along here…

    [3] Girth (circumference) matters, not length. Most sensitive nerve endings are outside of the vagina and only 4-in. deep within a woman’s genitals. The ability to apply pleasurable pressure and friction to a woman’s sexual erogenous zones matters significantly more than the ability to play “Cave Explorer” all the way to her cervix. [Note: The average circumference of a man’s penis is 5-in.]

    [4] The “C-V Range”. Someone in the Roissysphere has written about this subject before. It may have been Roosh. Anyway, the C-V Range is the length of flesh between a woman’s clitoris and vagina. To put it simply — Current research supports the theory that the greater the C-V Range, the less likely a woman is to cum.

    In conclusion, I’d suggest that the best way to personally resolve penis size insecurity is to learn “Game” to find desirable women, and then have sex with them. Through research, experiment and experience, you’ll surely find the means to make sex a mutually pleasurable activity for your woman and yourself — regardless of penis size.

    [Apologies for the docutainment-type post. I’ve been watching a lot of 50s-style nuclear war survival documentaries for a project, and I think the explanatory style has sort of ‘attached’ itself to me.]

    What women judge men by has only tagential relevance as to who they’ll screw. Girl talk is crap.

    Men’s looks matter only way down the pile of things for the large majority of girls. They think otherwise; they’re wrong. They act differently. Women are attracted to men with a dominant edge. Playful dominance especially.

    Some women want more muscles and some want more brain muscles. Some want gobs of money and others want social do gooder loving of him. But by and large women want playful dominance in a man; a man that can play her emotions and take her on dramatic roller coaster emotional rides. Make her feel ecstatic and worried about loosing him.

    Adding:[women who are crazy love that and we know men like women who are crazy…they say they don’t, but they do. That’s the dark secret men don’t want us to know, they crave crazy bitches.]

    Cock size is mostly a poor created fetish that leads some women to think that the really big dicked man is more dominant. Almost all female sexual nerve endings in the vagina leaving aside the clitoris and pussy lips are very close to the entrance. Event the G spot is only a couple of inches in. Cock size is, except perhaps for the very poorly endowed, largely or entirely a psychological matter and one that’s largely porn induced in girls today. I’m saying this as someone a lot thicker and also longer than average.

    Feminists as part of their campaign to belittle men under the banner of “judging them just as much” have added this area fairly recently. As though women haven’t always judged men more , they’re now just adding additional explicit dimensions to make their negative judging that much greater.

    Skin oiliness, voice deepening and hairy legs require lesser amounts of androgens than, say, effects on the brain and blood cell formation. Similarly slight masculinizing facial features takes less androgen than what is required for masculine levels of sexual drive.

    Similarly the only types of people who consistently list alpha thug sportfucker traits as a prerequisite for attraction are also gay men, lower class black women and sexually promiscuous white women. Ask any other type of woman and she’ll list nice guy beta characteristics as what she likes. Does that mean that the idea of girls who are “good girls” on the surface liking “bad boys” is a myth as well because most women won’t openly cop to it? No, anyone who’s been in the dating game long enough knows even good girls are attracted to a certain level of alpha thuggery. It’s just that some women are more into keeping appearances and conforming to social norms than others. The same logic goes to why not all women admit to caring about cock size also.

    Just like admitting a gina tingle for alpha thuggery, when women admit that size matters it makes the avg man nervous and insecure, so a smart woman keeps any such preferences to herself unless actually with a well-endowed man. Plus men assume a woman is some kind of slut or whore if she cops to caring about penis size, which is another reason only women unashamed of being called sluts are okay with openly admitting it. Think about it, why would something that physically stimulates a black chick or openly promiscuous white chick’s vagina magically have no effect on a middle class or upper class “good girl’s” vagina? They’re that physically different? No. The good girl just cares more about her reputation.

    The good news is that being too big can often be unpleasurable and painful and a turnoff too. Additionally a lot of the bigger penises have trouble getting as hard because they require a lot more blood. As long as you’re average and not incredibly small you’re good. Slightly above average seems to be the best. Too much above average and that becomes a prob for women too.

    What many unfortunate men don’t realize [to their disadvantage] is that women will take penis size in consideration with everything else a man possesses. A man who has ensured a Supernova-level ‘gina tingle’ in his woman is a man who does not have to worry about his woman contemplating the sexual logistics of his penis.

    There are significant differences between races. Asians tend to have a higher proportion of body fat to muscle mass than whites, and Africans have a higher proportion of muscle to fat than any other race.

    This is why most Asian countries have the cut-off for being ‘overweight’ at 23, instead of 25 like America.

    this is true. there are broad racial differences in the scaling of bmi. as you noted, asians have more fat and thus hit unacceptable bmi levels sooner than whites, who hit it sooner than blacks. however, bmi 25 is the high end of healthy, not the high end of attractive, and the two concepts, while overlapping, are not the same. an average-framed woman at bmi 25 can be healthy but she’ll likely look a lot better if she lost weight to bmi 22. this is the mistake that the fat lovers crowd and the anorexia-paranoiac crowd make when resorting to guidelines set by government health agencies — they are guidelines for health, not beauty.

    so listen up ladies! shoot for bmi 17-23, preferably on the lower end of that range, and you will increase the chance of landing that perfect man while still being healthy.

    Waist to hip ratio is where it is at. It’s the simplest thing to measure, and it has the most forecasting power to how hot they are. Sure there are “well proportioned” tubs of pork butter who score 0.65-0.7 on this scale, but they are incredibly rare.

    FWIIW, I agree with Bonnie to a certain extent: I really dig women who are in the 0.65 range of the waist to hip scale. I like junk in the trunk; as long as it’s got some muscle backing it up. The amount I dig them over 0.7’s varies with the amount I’m feeling my sap. Since I usually have the testosterone of a bull moose, that’s how I like them: like a Frank Frazetta painting.

    Very true, but social phenomena like corsetry, foot binding, lip plating, and other extreme body modifications prove that how hotness will be reacted to beyond thought depends very much on social status.

    For all the praise slim and hot women get here, I saw almost none of that when I was around American guys in my youth. Guys were either afraid of me, trying to put me down, or strangely, calling me fat.

    I caught less hell in real life, when I actually became fat, than I did when I wasn’t. I think western guys like ugliness…it’s a kind of love-to-hate thing. If you’re beautiful but not White, it’s somehow so wrong that it needs to be destroyed.

    Your recommendations of good inner game is correct but besides the point. Your recommendation of moving to eastern europe is ridiculous. Your recommendation to “just find the woman you like” is let-them-eat-cakes.

    The point of shaming obesity is to influence our women to start looking better. As free men and citizens, we don’t just withdraw, we take charge of the situation.

    I wholeheartedly agree.

    Obsidian @PA Do something constructive, if you really, truly give a damn. Instead of merely sounding off on a blog.

    With all due respect, of course.

    I strongly disagree that discussing things wrong with society on this board can have no social effect and that the only then men can or should do is develop their game and inner game.

    I do agree that learning game and inner game in important, and that betas who simply whine about how hopeless things have become and that they’re getting worse are acting pretty uselessly. Plus they annoying. And the give a bad odor to the place. I have this problem with Whiskey often frankly, but others as well.

    However I think Roissy and some of his commenters do have influences. There is afterall a Roissy sphere that’s sprung up. His combining of game and gender realism/anti-feminism is getting noticed in wider and wider circles. I think the loads of talk we’ve done here about how unfair marriage that is divorce law has become to men will make a lot of the men who read here quite a bit whether or not they ever comment quite a lot more hesitant about getting married and a lot more likely to ask for or in fact insistent on a prenup. And a pretty tough one, quite a lot like living together, perhaps with some exceptions negotiated out.

    I think men who read here are more likely to call out feminist garbage in a lot of areas, and be resistant to it. For example in how they raise their children and countering some of the propaganda they are fed at school.

    I think Roissy’s tirads about sluts for LTRs, echoed and elaborated on by many of this regular commenters ARE likely to make guys check that out more than they might have before reading here a lot. As well I think the various attacks on the female obesity epidemic in America are likely to stiffen a lot of guy’s backbones in what they say publically on the subject and how resistant they are to the insistent feminist and fat girls meme that it’s all “arbitrary social conditioning” and other similar garbage.

    One blog isn’t going to magically change the culture overnight, no. Or over months either. But I think it’s wrong to say that the stiffening of male resolve in a lot of areas that goes on here can have not effect.

If a guy thinks I’m disgusting, it would be undignified for me to push myself on him, or to behave as if I feel entitled to his sexual or any other kind of attention.

  534. Cliff, I honestly don’t know exactly what I could possibly say or do other than avoid public forums to not run afoul of Danas and Lurkers. It’s been the bane of my offline and online existence.

    I learned early on that there is no placating them. If one is nice to them, they just stomp on you harder. So I really don’t know what to do except ignore them or fight them. Neither does anything to cure them of stupidity or whatever blind spot makes them need me to be their enemy regardless of what I do or say, but fighting them occasionally makes me feel better.

    At least I’m letting the shit they throw at me out, instead of holding it in.

    I think since I started to lose weight, a lot of the old issues are surfacing, and I’m not as willing to put up with people’s crap. It’s not just the weight loss. Maybe my meager female drop of testosterone is increasing because of the weights and such, so I’m more sensitive and fierce about things too.

    When one accepts nature, like I do or try to, and one is at some kind of a disadvantage, one takes certain things in stride as just a part of how people attempt to sort themselves. When one gains or regains an advantage, one has less tolerance for people who can’t accept the natural order and try to muddy the waters.

    I’m 39 years old, and way out of any consideration of younger men. So their little concerns about the weight of girls their age are not my problem. I’m not in their range, and don’t want to be. When I was in their range, I got no peace from their type of guys because then whatever beauty I had was socially inconvenient, and the wusses had to make me feel low so they could maintain their illusion of superiority.

    Those who think they are superior to me, let them think…but I am damn sure not going to agree. They’ll be crying warpig and nigger all their lives if they think that’s going to bring me down.

    I don’t need to be put in my place. Everybody is already in their place. I don’t need to put others down…just to stand my ground.

    If this makes my personality disgusting to them, then well it should be. It’s damn sure not meant to be attractive to insecure weaklings.

It’s all so desperate and pathetic to see so many intelligent modern White men groveling and lowering yourselves in this way like a bunch of unworthy insects or something.

    The fact is that women are very inferior to men both morally and mentally, and also physically in terms of strength and endurance…thus we men should be telling and demanding from women what WE men want, not the other way around. All women have to offer us is a wet hole, while the entire existence and continuity of our civilization, culture, economy, and so on depends on the actions of men.

    Like


  538. Masculinst, though I agree with your statement that men should grow up and be men, I think you’re mistaken about a few things.

    This blog isn’t about pandering to women. It’s about bedding and maybe securing hot women. Women in general don’t matter to these men. I’m sure most of them could score an average or below average woman if they wanted.

    …but they don’t.

    So, to get the top women, they have to learn how their minds work, and how to get into and maybe stay in their pants. Women aren’t going to tell them the truth about how this works usually, because most women are not hot. It is in most women’s interest to convince men that they should learn to be happy with less.

    This is not to say that character is less important, but it is still secondary since people aren’t usually getting married and off the general market at 16 anymore.

    So men aren’t able to be men in the same way that they could in the past without running afoul of the law. Women want to stay single until they are in their mid 20’s nowadays, and until then, well, slut around.

    So this system works best for the hottest women and the highest status men, but other men are left out unless they adapt. I don’t find anything particularly unmanly about adapting.

    On the flipside, I think the best way for a non hot woman to adapt to this situation is to not be on the general sexual market…to hold out for when the guys have sown their wild oats or gotten legitimately tired of chasing the top tier women, and are ready to get married. Some guys may value a chaste plain woman, but nobody values an ugly slut.

    Let the hot women ride the cock carousel.

  540. Fifth, I think the leftism and lack of personal responsibility are the cause of more obesity, not the result of it.

    The cure is, of course, for people to butch up.

    The problem is that most people don’t have the will to do it without society holding their hand. Gain power and influence so you can move society in the direction you want it to go.

    If you don’t have the requisite evil streak to go national, go local…do what you can even in your regular social sphere.

    I recruit at my table. Whenever I bake a birthday cake with real butter instead of junk fat, people edge a little closer to seeing the light. Other kids pull out their sandwiches, and mine breaks out a chicken leg, a half cup of rice, and a gorgeous salad.

    There’s all kinds of stuff you can do. The rewards in people’s stomachs and their pockets will get you where vague protests of the results of a problem they don’t know the real cause of, wouldn’t. Become a food snob.

    If you have a female friend who’s just a friend because she’s fat, give her some tools. Baby steps…get her to get rid of the white sugar and junk fat…then move up to disallowing white bread and so on. Don’t talk to her about calories at first. That’ll come later.

    …and be there for her when it hits her that she isn’t genetically fat or doomed to be fat because of a health problem that wouldn’t, with a natural diet, facilitate fatness. She’ll be confused and pissed off.

    Defend her when other people diss her…cause you know some idiot is going to insult her for having a steak or something.

Perhaps this has to do with the hi-t loss of discrimination Roissy mentioned earlier.

    The more abuse you heap on fat women, the more the chubby chaser will view them as the underdog they are saving from a life of celibacy.

    These women aren’t lacking sex, and won’t lack sex ever, because there will always be some guy willing to do almost any woman. Not all guys are very socially invested, and some legitimately do prefer women on the heavier side for legit reasons (like fucking like mad wolves for hours on end).

    You can’t cut it off completely. What you want to do is thin out the crowd. Part of the reason for this is to return the natural order where people actually cared about being physically compatible with their potential partners.

    So what you have to do to reach the socially invested is speak in a language they will interpret as authoritative, not alienating. Authority says, “You are sick for taking advantage of that woman.” Authority shames at a gutt level that is hard to deny.

    G: game doesn´t attract this kind of men. These men are the ones who saw the matrix.

    O: If that’s true Gig, then why don’t I hate Women? Because I most definitely saw the “matrix” after reading MM and The Game. How do you explain that?

    With all due respect Gig, I disagree with your view. There IS something to be said for the PUA/Game community’s attraction for guys who have at the least a problematic view of Women, if not being out and out misogynist-and let me be clear here. In no way am I a supplicant or suckup to ANY Woman-indeed, I have gone on record, several times, in this regard. I’ve written about two Women in particular, Jana Mackey and Jasmine Fiore, and how they based their mating choices on Gina Tingles alone, and paid the Ultimate Price for it-and they have no one but themselves to blame for it.

    That said, I disagree with th notion of some, that Game is either inherently misogynistic, or, that it in some way leads a Man into that sort of thinking-like the violent movie/Hip Hop debate, a person already has to be distrubed in some way prior to indulging in these things in order to go off the deepend. The truth is, that there are a goodly number of guys out there who need to get their heads right BEFORE they enter the Game community, or what they will learn here will just make them markedly worse, not better-and what’s really scary is now they have the means to really hurt others, in this case, Women and indirectly, the rest of us who don’t hate Women (“Masculinist” is an excellent case in point-by his own admission he has no love for Game, but he doesn’t hesitate to come into a Game-focused forum to spew his deeply problematic views).

    And while I’m on this point, if I may, I find most of your posts to be deeply problematic, Gig. They are filled with anger and rage, smoothed over with the veneer of an upperclass guy but the vitriol is still there. Your blatant racism aside, there is a distinct anti-Woman strain to your writing that turns guys like me-hardly a friend to Feminists-off. To be frank, its a true wonder you are able to attract any Women to you at all, especially those of a higher quality. But, I suppose, stranger things have happened.

    ‘Underweight’ does not mean ‘what I think looks awkward/ugly-skinny’. It is when you do this math problem: square your height in inches, divide your weight in pounds by the first number, and x703 – and the answer is less than 18.5.

    you see a widespread misogyny among the PUA crowd. I answer that it is because this is exactly the crowd who saw women´s inner nature. You reply I must be angry because you don´t hate women which is only more amazing since you yourself excluded yourself from the PUA crowd many times before

    or: you say group A behaves in fashion B and you have excluded yourself from group A before. Individual C, who claims to be part of group A, says group A behaves in fashion B because of D. You reply that since you, who is not part of A, does not follow D, therefore individual C is not part of A

  582. Because of the nature of this comment, I’ll be cross-posting it to Ferdinand Bardamu’s In Mala Fide blog shortly.

    Recently, at the aforementioned blog, there has taken place a somewhat heated debate, between the SocialCons, and Gamers. The pretext of course, was that the former was trying to “save” Western Civ, while the latter was adding fuel to the fires of its destruction. Both sides were, as one might imagine, impassioned for their side and cause.

    But as I took a step back from that particular debate, and just looked at the “haters” of Game in general-in my experience far more Male than Female-one common theme emerges:

    They all tend to be deeply adverse to the idea of Change.

    Whether they be a dedicated SocialCon like Larry Auster, or a self-professed “sub-human male” like David Alexander, the biggest detractors detest Game, I think, because at its base is the core tenet of changing oneself as a prerequisite to success with Women. And that’s something that I’ve found, is deeply problematic to A LOT of Men.

    It’s even here in the current and recurring “Fatty Girl” theme-threads – the focus is on changing someone else, instead of CHANGING ONESELF.

    Why are so many Men afraid of Change?

    I think there are several reasons for it.

    One, because I think a lot of Men think that to change something about themselves, means in essence, that they are not good enough as they are. Well, guess what-they’d be right. As they currently stand, they are not good enough for Today’s Women, most of whom are saavy, edcuated and earn very good livings. In short, they don’t, nor shouldn’t, have to put up with what their moms and grandmoms had to put up with back in the day to land and keep a Man. It’s not good enough to simply be a Nice Guy with a Good Job. So what.

    Today’s Guy has to offer more than a steady paycheck. Game helps a Man deliver the goods. Simple as that. And those who adapt to the new environment will do well. Those who don’t, won’t or can’t, will go the way of the Horse & Buggy.

    The second reason why I think a lot of guys are so resistant to the core message of Game is due to Fear. Of course, admitting fear on any level is a Cardinal Sin amongst the Brotherhood, but every Man knows Fear at some point in his life, and truth be told, quite a bit often than he’d like to publicly admit. In this case, it’s a Fear of the Unknown, a major stumbling block for a lot of guys. Game asks its students to take quite a few leaps of faith, on what appear to be flimsy, silly or counterintuitive grounds-which, for quite a few Men, is a bridge too far. And that’s too bad. Because by not taking any chances, they choose not to truly live.

    He has said that Game can and will, change a Man. I’m a witness.

    And so is one blogger formerly known as Beta Prime, of Beta Revolution; as of Sep 12, 2009 though, he has simply decided to call himself “Prime”, in honor of his discovery of Style’s book The Game. Seems he’s finally seen the Matrix. Welcome to the Real World.

    My friend, The Fifth Horseman, has said a number of quite provocative things wrt Game; one that a Man with what he considers “Moderate Game Competence” is approximately worth about $2 MIL in quality of life, that such a Man has a skillset that cannot be taxed, seized or goes out of style; he can use it until the day he dies. The second thing TFH posits is that some 80% of all Men anywhere will never “get” Game, that the relative few who do, do so because they are what he terms OTBs-Outside The Box thinkers. People who can see the Matrix, if you will.

    I think most Men won’t get Game because they refuse to change. And most Men refuse to change because they’re afraid of the unkown.

    I’ve often said that for me, learning Game has given me a deeper appreciation and respect for Women, not the other way around, as some of my brothers have lamented. Because I can see a bit from their point of view various things.

    Many Men recoil at the idea of “being someone else”, while never stopping to think the lengths so many Women go to, to become “someone else”. This can and does range from wearing uncomfortable shoes and sitting in a hairdresser’s chair for five hours or more, all the way to laying on a cosmetic surgeon’s table and literally risking her life to look good. The vast majority of Men out there, including those reading this now, including guys like Style and Mystery themselves, will NEVER undergo that many changes in order to have a chance at competing for the opposite sex’s attention. That’s something to keep in mind the next time some guy balks at making some relatively minor adjustments in his overall life situation in order not to windup with Chronic Blue Balls.

    At some point, all the smokescreens, all the bullshit, really needs to stop. Guys have to understand that this aint Leave It To Beaver no more, if it ever was, nor are we going back. And instead of pissing and moaning about what we’ve lost, instead focus on what we’ve gained. I, for one, am GLAD that I no longer have to work at a job I HATE, just so I can have a decent shot at getting a Woman. Most of our dads and grandads didn’t have a choice in the matter, and most of them died, in many cases, premature deaths as a result. There have been studies done that show that Men tend to have the most heart attacks on the way to work Monday morning. Don’t know how true that is, but I know for a fact I’ve seen it happen, several times. That doesn’t have to happen to me.

    And I rejoice in the fact that any Woman I’m with is with me because of ME, not because of what I do or make. In fact, I can and have been broke, and it didn’t make a difference in the ladies dept. Not. At. All. TFH was right. Game is worth more than a million dollars.

    At least it is, to those who are not afraid of Change.

  583. Here’s the thing with game. I believe when it works it works exceptionally well. People who seem to have a knack for it seem to learn a lot and gain proficiency in a remarkably short time. It seems to have a steep learning curve. But ppl who have no knack for it never seem to be able to improve much beyond being able to hold longer conversations and get more numbers, most of which end up flaking in the long term.

    So yeah it has some amazing success stories but what percentage of those who undertake learning it actually become successful at it? 20%? 80% Not talking about people who start in a half-assed way and then quit early, I’m talking people who seriously undertake it with dedication and giving it their all: what is the x-factor that makes some of these people into poon superstars and others into lost causes with marginal improvement?

  586. Roissy is not exactly right on this. I despise the feminists and their bullshit as much as he does. But while cultural influence can’t make you like UGLY things like Helen Thomas or a fat dyke, it can sure affect what kind of attractive things you prefer.

    Roissy, are you turned on by geishas? Admittedly we all more or less find them interesting or attractive–because they are. But do you find their make-up and the often-intended imperfections in its application “hot”? Because Japanese men do, or used to. Is that because their genes are different or because they had a more elevated or peculiar standard of taste?

    [editor: are any of those geishas fat or ugly?]

    Second question, are you turned on by pretty 14-19 year old boys? Because historically men have found them preferable to women, almost everywhere in the world.

    [no, they haven’t. that’s just faggot agit-prop.]

    This was true throughout the Orient (medieval Arabic love poetry is most often about boys), in ancient Greece and Rome, among the ancient barbarian Celts, in Japan, etc.; were those men’s genetics that different from yours? Why don’t Western men today pursue the same kind of beauty? Could it have something to do with the law, social forces, etc., even modern feminism?

    [no. heterosexual men don’t pursue 14 year old boys because they prefer women.]

    Finally it is true that men find that waist-to-hip ratio universally attractive. But it is not true that men find hysterical women who’ve spent all day in aerobics class attractive. That’s very likely a homosexualized taste. A *little* bit of flesh is womanly.

    reductio ad anorexium.

    2) You attack my bmi data by attacking me. My bmi is just fine, thanks. Is it possible that your unhealthy crusade is rooted in your own struggles with weight?

    your bmi data is from the nih, a *health* organization with feminist leanings (i know, i used to date a couple of nurses from there. it’s politicized.) as i pointed out to you above but which you are either too stupid or too disingenuous to acknowledge, health and beauty overlap but they aren’t a perfect correlation. a 25 bmi may be a healthy weight for many women at that size, but it isn’t an optimal attractivness weight. 17 – 23 bmi is perfectly healthy, AND it is the range within which women are most attractive to men.

    i ask for your weight and height because it is pertinent to this discussion for determining your motive to defend the indefensible.

    3)Someone upstream speculated that you R. subconsciously may prefer underweight infertile women who may not get pregnant? Interesting thought.

    interesting to you, because you are likely a fat fuck who detests my message. but unfortunately for your fragile ego, my taste in women is perectly in line with the norm for the huge majority of straight men. and nothing indicates female fertility like a lucious, SLENDER 17 -23 bmi.

    have you changed your mind on mandatory paternity testing, or shall i continue rubbing your cunty fat face in your cuntiness?

Maybe he does and just didn’t include it in the book, etc. But the overall vibe I get from him is different than the one I get from you, Gig. There’s a big difference. And that’s what concerns me.

    As for the definition of “misogyny” for me it simply means a hatred and contempt for Women, which I see a good bit of here and elsewhere. Again, I’m not talkin about supplicating here. I’m talking about saying to me are unreasonably harsh things about Women. That’s what I could consider misogynistic.

  601. Thursday—
    (and anyone else who’s interested)
    here’s Diodorus Siculus book 5 on the ancient Celts. I don’t think the Celts were known for sequestering their women by the way,

    “Although they have good-looking women, they pay very little attention to them, but are really crazy about having sex with men. They are accustomed to sleep on the ground on animal skins and roll around with male bed-mates on both sides. Heedless of their own dignity, they abandon without qualm the bloom of their bodies to others. And the most incredible thing is that they don’t think this is shameful. But when they proposition someone, they consider it dishonourable if he doesn’t accept the offer.”

    I can quote two or three other ancient historians for more of this if you want.

    But Thursday, the argument you’re making is similar to the one feminists and others make, that “social repression” is responsible for determining what men like and don’t like. In truth, as PA points out, men in Greece had slave-girls and others available for sex as often as they liked. They still preferred boys for romantic affairs, etc.; my point is that modern culture is not able to make you like something ugly, but yes, it’s able to make you prefer one type of beauty over another, or even repress your attraction to certain kinds of beauty. Roissy doesn’t get an instant hard-on at irregularities in the make-up of a geisha for example.

I’d much rather be the frail, sub-human male. While it means that I miss on women, it means that I’m free to avoid changing to become some over hyped, over-testosterone fuelled impulsive male that has behaviours that basically scare off white people, nor can I be that protective guy that even the nerdy girls want in their lives.

Pederasty was not a secret among for example the Greek upper class, where access to slave girls was easy. It was in fact de rigueur. I can’t keep repeating all these examples. Basically anywhere outside the influence of Judaic morality or strict Christianity, homosexual behavior and especially pederasty have been at least as widespread as relations with women, if not more so.

    You don’t have to take my word about history. If you don’t believe me take a trip to the Middle East, Thailand, Brazil, etc.; men in traditional cultures define their manhood by whether they are active or on top, not whether they can get strong wimmins to peg them.

    It’s nice to see a female indulging in the Darwinian just-so stories that’s usually the province of male armchair theorists. While it’s possible that your reasoning may be true, the simpler explanation is that your guy was telling the truth.

    Some guys are like CH or PA in that only thin women give them boners. But many guys, a significant minority — even white guys like myself — only get hard for women with some extra padding. Males are more variable in all categories, any distribution of males is going to have fatter tails, more data points which stray from the average.

    However, if your man wants you to gain so much weight that you lose your .7 WHR or go from an hourglass shape to globular, it’s more likely that he’s a fetishistic freak than that he’s trying to sabotage your prospects with other guys.

  618. 1. I may have to look up more about the Celts, but one has to be extremely careful about ethnographic information from outside sources. Western outsiders from Herodotus (“the father of lies”) to Tacitus to all the “noble savage” stuff after the discovery of the Americas to Margaret Mead have fed us all sorts of crazy stories about exotic cultures. A lot of them had pretty blatant ideological motives. In contrast, we know a lot more about Greek and Muslim societies from their own sources.

    2. PA is conflating Greeks from the earlier, Homeric period and the later Classical period. The earlier period had just as much emotional intimacy between men (Achilles and Patroclus endlessly proclaim their love for each other in the Iliad), but no glorification or extensive practice of homosexuality (it’s Briseis of the sweet cheeks, not Patroclus). This earlier period was characterized by taking of female slaves for sex.

    During the Classical period, wives had absolute control over female slaves, so, while slavery was extensive, men did not actually have much access to sex with their slaves. The deafening silence you hear about slave reproduction in Athens (contrast with Rome) speaks volumes. And this, not coincidently, was the era when homosexuality became acceptable among Athenians.

    The emotional intimacy among men part didn’t change between the two periods, but access to women did.

    Your resistance to colds may be due to your previously mentioned habit of eating very little.

My own resistance to pathogens has increased greatly since casually adopting a low-carb plus intermittent fasting lifestyle. Before I amended my eating habits, I would get the flu every year, since changing about three years ago, I haven’t had the flu once, and have only experienced one cold during this time, after eating too many baked grain products. The nasal allergy symptoms which were a constant of my childhood have also disappeared.

I thought it meant he loved me and was proud of me. He did and he was but he still needed protection from outside threats (he thought so but he didn’t) and didn’t directly encourage weight gain but didn’t mind me eating. When we met I was an exercise instructor and sung in a rock band. He began to control my life in subtle ways and I gave up singing and teaching – he didn’t mind because honestly he knew I had options far bigger than I imagined if I kept doing what I was doing. My idiocy for being too naive to see what was going on.

There is a lot of published nonsense about this, which seems to imply that all Greeks and Romans were buggers. In fact, a lot of the “evidence” for this is approximately equivalent to rap musicians calling each other “faggot.” Sure, some cultures have rampant homosexuality; Greeks and Romans were not really among those; at least for most of their history. Saying the Greeks were boy-lovers is about as sensible as saying Teddy Roosevelt era Americans were boy lovers because of the existence of NAMBLA in the late 20th century.

  645. Lupo,
    You’re so off the mark I shouldn’t even bother to answer you. Diodorus Siculus objected to the Celts letting themselves get penetrated, not to their homosexual behavior. Read the passage again. This gets mentioned by 2-3 other historians by the way (Atheneus, etc.), in quite different terms. And no…the Greek and Roman upper classes did not consider homosexuality shameful, they considered letting yourself get fucked shameful. However, fucking a man (or a boy) was considered the opposite, and they engaged in this freely. On top of this, the Greek (but not Roman) upper class had a ritualized and much-known pederastic tradition which was the opposite of shameful (and did not include sodomy). You can’t even read many love stories, etc., from Classical era that are about women–it’s all about boys. Their whole educational system was based on this, especially in Sparta and Crete. It’s mentioned in an off-hand manner by almost every writer of the time. No one is disputing this. You need to do some reading before you mouth off like that.

    My whole point here is that in traditional cultures manliness is defined by whether you’re on top, not by whether you’re with a woman. If you’re passive with a woman, like most of you are, you’re still a bitch.

    However this is getting quite off topic. My point was that throughout history men have preferred boys, not women. Now they don’t. This clearly has to do with our laws and culture, and not with biology, which is apparently suppressed.

It’s also common among inner-city blacks in the US. “Gay rights” has very little to do with man-on-man sex and very much to do with a feminist agenda. In the Gulf states gay rights has no place; homosexual behavior is nonstop. If you don’t believe me go there yourself, or visit even Morocco or parts of Turkey…if you’re a guy alone and have blond hair prepare to defend yourself against a mob.

    It’s also known that men like to screw, and often aren’t that picky about who. If anything, that should have warned western women of the futility of slutting around. It’s like a pointless aerobic activity, only at least you won’t get syphillis from normal exercise.

    Maybe that’s his point…that men will do many things for a combination of sexual release and human contact, so women’s role in that shouldn’t be overvalued. Men can get that and more from each other. So aside of their regular human contribution in the workforce and such, women’s role as mothers are the only thing men really have to get from them. They therefore shouldn’t belittle that.

    If they do, it’s not beyond men as a gender to basically reduce them to that.

    However, I want to bring in the concept of tantric celibacy, which is utilized in South Asian culture, even to this day, amongst unmarried bachelors.

    Our culture has the concept of semen as a highly nutritive substance that can fuel the body and brain to great heights when preserved and re-directed.

    Our culture has the concept of “bramacharya” which is sometimes translated as “student”, sometimes as “bachelor” and sometimes as “celibate”.

    It denotes that in one’s youth, while one is an unmarried student, one should preserve one’s energy and focus on studies, serving one’s parents and God.

    Sex is meant for married life only.

    There are still MANY people in South Asia who follow this.

    Unfortunately there are many who don’t as well.

    We also have the concept that every woman is to be seen by every male as “mother” or an incarnation of the Divine Mother Goddess, except of course one’s own wife, who is nonetheless seen as a Godddess also.

    These are our cultural ideals that have been saved and passed on for more than centuries – for millenia.

    Both genders have to pull their weight…and on the real, Gays and androgynes, though much fewer than the others, also have to pull their weight too. Sexuality is such an important thing in both bonding and reproduction that societies cannot afford to strip them of trust.

    Maybe the insertion of some Hindu ideas on that subject will do the west some good. It has done me and others a lot of good personally.

    Thing is, few people in the general population are really interested in holding up their end of the deal. Even many who were raised with these or similarly lofty ideals, have in the past and still are abandoning them for the sake of immediate gratification.

    Muslims, for instance, are *supposed* to consider both genders equally entitled to respect, but you see how things pan out in real life. The same is true for many Hindus, many Jews, many Christians, Buddhists, Animists…people tend to be very blindly selfish when it suits them.

    I see tantric celibacy as a useful tool for guys who want to stay cool while they’re opting out of being a cheap disposable ego boosting resource for non marriage worthy women. In the grand scheme of things though, calm and patience may be a hunter’s greatest skills, but not the only ones he should have. He should also know how to shoot sharply.

Not that I don’t have proportionate curves, but proportions aren’t what men idealize. They want a balance of slenderness – not skinniness – and meatiness. Curves in the right places, nothing too thick, and certainly nothing spindly or bony (which I am).

    I’ve noticed competition to be the hottest one who gets the most male attention – a competition that I’m excluded from because of my thinness, which isn’t optimally attractive to the majority of men.

    Started reading the entire blog, but having a short attention span got bored with the point scoring pretty quickly, so I apologize if I repeat something that anybody has already said.

    From an evolutionary perspective the main driver for both men and women in selecting a mate is to strengthen the chances of geneology surviving through time. The primary driver for this is fertility, followed closely by health. Therefore men will be attracted to young women who have enough hips to give birth to children without coming apart at the seams and breasts large enough nurture them whilst still managing to not look overly large or overweight. One of the key drivers for facial attractiveness is apparently symmetry – go figure..

  666. Ha ha – you must have been tortured by a fat woman once (or are being tortured by one) and are lashing out for this reason. Men who have what they want have no reason to rant endlessly about what they don’t want…

  667. really, female attractiveness is all in the eye of the beholder. some like big, some like little, it’s all relative. odds are, someone will find a woman attractive regardless. Now, if you yourself don’t like your weight, looks, etc….then change it if you want. but beauty isn’t always about one person’s view. in fact, that’s kind of ludicrous.
