What's wrong with strong curvy women? Those models in the photo look perfectly healthy to me, not morbidly obese or anything. I'm so sick of seeing disgusting stick figure portrayal of women in the media. Bring real women back please!

As a psychologist, you should recognize that guys just like skinny chicks. Guys that go for fat chicks are just recognizing they don't have what it takes to get a pretty girl

Seriously, dude, be careful. This is the first step on a slippery slope. Next, you'll start advocating that governments do things that actually work.

Zabrina,

I like you more and more with your posting habits and your thoughts!

While I'm all in favor of larger people needing to lose weight for all of the obvious reasons (me, especially!) ... why drag others down when they're just trying to get through the day in a positive fashion?

I saw that article a few days back. I don't interpret it as "normalizing" a fat woman. I just see it as a new bathing suit style that is somewhat flattering to a larger figure.

Leave it alone and let it just stand for what it is.

I assure you it's not about fat acceptance. It's only about giving a marginalized segment of our society (one of the few left) something to wear when they're near a pool or someplace similar.

And making a damn ad about it. Or an article. They probably didn't make that many swim suits in those sizes to begin with hence, they sold out.

Cute swimsuits, too.

About 99.9% of the time I don't get involved with these "fat" topics because it just doesn't accomplish anything. But no one chooses to be huge. You male and females who are blessed with good figures should thank your lucky stars at night that you don't have to deal with being naturally overweight.

It's a fucking curse.

Try to understand it. You don't have to like it. But don't perpetuate the hate. The world doesn't need that.

Neither do you. Again, thanks Zabrina for being a voice of reason.
