Bloated gassy creatures in swimsuits and the denial of agency and reality.

Hmm. Wonder what will happen when the Body "Positivity" movement discovers the lockdowns they support will cause food shortages. Since Famine is what the Malthusians wish upon us, along with Plague, War and Death. Ah equity.
My not quite 19 year old spent most of last week with her boyfriend’s family at Fort Knox, helping them pack; they were being transferred, but even though the dad’s a Colonel, they had yet to be told where; they just needed to get out of the house. (They have a big Airstream for such occasions.)
The boyfriend came home with her for the weekend. During dinner at a local restaurant my wife asked what he was studying and what would be doing next semester. “I was taking art. I’m a tattoo artist.” After showing us some of his own work on his own body he said, “I am thinking I’ll go to Tallahasee where you don’t have to be licensed to open a studio.”
I had this instant picture of my daughter running the front desk in a small strip mall storefront, with a wheezing ac window unit, loud strange music, odd lighting and creepy wall art with drunks stumbling in trying to decide what, and where, to get inked next.
I did not enjoy my food.
I am a bit surprised that TPTB moved to have us accept the absurdity of a penis-ed individual being a woman--a VERY special kind of woman--before trying to get us to buy the notion of morbidly obese women as sexy. But here we are...
Funny how no oligarch is ever pictured with a 250 + pound woman attached to his arm. Strange, that.
Modern art is likewise an attempt to eliminate beauty standards. If someone wants to explain to me how Jackson Pollock's paint drippings, Mark Rothko's color swatches, and Cy Twombly's scribblings are equal to the works of Reubens and Carravaggio, have at it. I do so love reading exercises in creative writing.
It’s not the triple bacon or beef or cheese in that burger, it’s the bread, fries and coke ! These “bloated gassy creatures” could drop 50# in 50 days on keto/carnivore and not feel hungry for a second ! Easiest and most natural way to eat.
One of the most powerful yet undersung antidotes to our collective Western mental illness is barbell training. There is not a more objective activity on earth. You can’t coerce, temper tantrum, or otherwise cheat your way into deadlifting 500 pounds. If you are a woman, you can’t decide to identify as a man one morning and instantly add hundreds of pounds to your lifts. You succeed because you put in the work. You fail because you lack diligence. These are profound lessons these days.
Barbell training on its own can’t fix our culture, but it would certainly move it in the right direction.
Someone had to say it. Thanks, GC. From the outside looking in, it's utterly bizarre - or utterly butterly. One of the two. We are truly going insane. Well, not US of course. But I have to note that the highest number of Covid deaths were in the morbidly obese and diabetic. There has to be a link here... Keep eating all the junk double whatevers you can, get fat, get Covid and die. Except now we're all set to starve to death. These besuited folks in the dark cigar-smoke-filled room are sure busy.
I saw a tweet of an over weight woman complaining about long Covid. I replied that she didn’t have long Covid, she was just fat. I did feel bad about my reply and considered deleting it but I kept it. It is time to PUSH BACK! If not me, who? If not now, when?
All so damn funny, and yet so too true, that many of us can completely relate to the description, and yet because societal conditioning has made so many around us fit these descriptions, that all we can do is like it here, but dare not share....
No trigger warning for those pictures? Thanks Boomer!!
hilarious article...very enjoyable snark cynicism...keep up yer good work...i'm a 65 year old man about to have a baby!
So well put. Bloated gassy cows, perfect description. To think we are to pretend this is beauty and not obesity with a side of diabetes is too far for many. Of course if we speak up we get attacked for being uncaring.
What you didn't mention is the anorexia and bullimia that women and likely men now deal with
I agree with what I can read of your post, mostly the pix, but you know we can't all be skinny, nor should we be.
The last woman I had decent sex with like ten+ years ago now good Lord
Was slightly larger than perfect by Western standards, but I found her attractive.
There is something more than merely physical.
Without taking your points away.
There is something extreme about fat bashing too.
Or skinny as ideal.
There is an in betwixt

I think some advertisements can go too far, like the pregnant trans man on Mother's day.
I like the big women models. Have you not been to Middle america? We've been putting thin women on magazines for the past 50 years and our country gets fatter and fatter. Putting these women on the front of this magazine is not going to suddenly make people thinner. So if people die early of diabetes then that's their lot.
I was in Macy's a couple weeks ago and in the posters they had all different skin color and size models through the whole department store - make up through shoes through women's clothing. I loved it! The plus sizes were in with the other sizes, the sections weren't separated. It was so refreshing.
I heard that the most requested porn was for fat women. I don't necessarily find big bodies attractive, but there apparently are many who do. More cushion for the pushing, big breasts to snuggle into, a butt that doesn't feel like bone. To each their own.
None of the activists cheering-on this societal suicide will ever buy any of these products. Ever. They will talk about it in a Twitter echo chamber, and idiotic mid-wit managers will think that's a sign it's popular, but not one of them will buy a single copy of Sports Illustrated.
