Do you believe it is wrong for society to dump on obese women while obese men are too often excused from criticism?

Question: The word 'obese' should never be taken as a derogatory term. It should simply be just another term to describe the human anatomy. I will write here only about obese women and not about obese men because obese men, as a rule, are not subject to the same harsh treatment by society. Obese women do not deserve the harsh treatment they are getting from society. In fact, recent studies have shown that there are actually benefits to being obese as long as health is not an issue. The fact is, not all obese women develop heart disease or cancer as we are being misled to believe. Many obese women go on to live long, healthy lives. A woman who chooses to be obese has every right to do so and she should never feel ashamed or embarrassed about her body, no matter how much criticism comes her way. And, as I already pointed out above, there are benefits (and also advantages) for women who are obese. For example: Obese women are less likely to develop osteoporosis (and a number of other serious diseases) than their slimmer female counterparts. That is because (and studies have also shown this) that obese women have larger, thicker bones than their slimmer female counterparts. Also, many, if not most, obese women are physically very strong (they are stronger, in fact, than many men are!!!). Dr. Dean Edell (he's an M.D.) pointed this out on his national radio talk program by stating (in his own words) that there's 'An Arnold Schwarzenegger' inside there, meaning that they have large muscles underneath their extra adipose tissue (commonly called 'fat'). As a man who has had obese girlfriends as well as thinner girlfriends, I know from firsthand experience that an obese woman is every bit as warm, loving and tender as any other woman is. I must admit that I have always felt (and I still feel) loved and protected while being held in the strong arms of a loyal obese woman. So now, back to my question: Do you believe it is wrong for society to dump on obese women (or obese girls)?

I believe it is wrong for society to dump on obese people regardless of whether they are men or women. In fact, I believe it is wrong to dump on any one for any physical characteristic they may have or lack. However, I am not sure that women are generally dumped on more than men are for being obesese. In fact some men are attracted to obesese women and hence the term BBW (big beautiful woman) has come into use especially on line. I think some of this attraction may well be because, as you point out, many obese women are physically stronger than men and, as can be seen from this forum, many men are attracted to women stronger than them, or at least excited by the thought of a woman being stronger.

Speaking of strength, it is a fact that many obese women are physically stronger than many men of average build. As is pointed out in comment #1, obese women are also known as BBWs which is the term I will use hereinafter for the sake of time and space. I have seen a BBW overpower a man of average build so just imagine how much stronger she is than a skinny man!!! Perhaps that is a big reason why so many skinny men are sexually attracted to BBWs. I saw one BBW in particular lift a very heavy weight (a fully-loaded barbell) over her head that is undoubtedly far too heavy for at least 90% of all skinny men to lift!!! As a rule (exceptions don't count), BBWs are stronger (often far stronger) than skinny men. Height doesn't make any difference, either. As a rule (exceptions don't count), short BBWs are stronger (often far stronger) than tall skinny men. The size and strength of a BBW commands RESPECT!!!

Attention STAR TREK fans, large ladies and everyone else: Leonard Nimoy (the original Mr. SPOCK) is also a great admirer of large ladies. Nimoy's book titled "The Full Body Project: Photographs by Leonard Nimoy" contains dozens of Nimoy's own photographs of nude large women including obese women. One reviewer quotes: "The pictures are real and raw but not distasteful." There is no better representative large ladies could have than the famous STAR TREK original himself!!!

When a typical guy sees a big woman(bigger than he), he would rather think she is full of fat; instead of facing the actual truth that she has muscles and more likely bigger and stronger than he.The reason that bigger women are discriminated against, is that fragile male ego.

BBW is nice(Big beautiful woman);but I think I rename it BSW(Big Strong Woman). Her physical strength along with her pure heart creates her beauty

An obese woman without large muscles is the exception. She is either totally sedentary or she has a health issue. As a rule, an obese woman has large muscles under her thick layers because she needs larger muscles in order to compensate for her much larger body. Her arms are stronger because they need to be. Her legs are stronger because they need to be. In fact, her whole body is stronger simply because she has bigger muscles. I am a thin man so I know what it's like to be physically overpowered by an obese woman. As a man, I feel no shame in admitting that I have been physically overpowered by an obese woman. Whether she is called "fat," "plump," "thick," "chunky," "stocky," "Rubenesque," "a BBW" or "obese," the fact is: SHE'S GOT BIG MUSCLES!!!

It is wrong for either males or females to be obese

Being obese in and of itself does not mean being unhealthy. As I already pointed out in my poll here, many obese women live long, healthy lives. I believe being obese should be a choice just like being slender should be a choice (metabolism permitting!!!). There is nothing wrong with being obese just like there is nothing wrong with being slender. And while obese women have obvious benefits such as having thicker, stronger bones which fight off osteoporosis, perhaps their number one benefit of all is their greater physical strength. Let's face facts. Unless they are physically challenged in some other way, obese women are STRONG!!! And many obese women are INCREDIBLY STRONG!!! There are already lots of polls and comments here about big strong women and I have to state right here that obese women who are in good health are among the biggest and strongest women of all!!! A great number of obese women can bench press more than most men can. A great number of obese women can lift a greater weight overhead than most men can. I have witnessed their incredible strength firsthand!!! In fact, I have read comments from obese women themselves, right here on these threads (with some of those ladies actually stating their weight!!!), who boast about HOW MUCH STRONGER THEY ARE THAN MEN!!!
