If you had the power to change your FA-ness...
would you? How?


There is no reason to change that. I love and live my FA-ness, no excuse, no regret, no shame, no shyness. It's my life.

When I was an adolescent it might've made things a bit simpler but I'm not sure? There's always going to be something that works and something that doesn't, no matter what your hot buttons are. In my experience self-acceptance is pretty fundamental to being acceptable to someone else. Bottom line (npi) I just don't think it's possible to deliberately change one's sexuality. A preference, maybe, but I can admit my FAness runs a little deeper and closer to the bone (OK, pun intended).

I wouldn't change it at all, I'm fine with how I see women of all sizes. I am who I am and I'm fine with it.

Well, I think you'll see diet ads on billboards in most major cities. That's kind of par for the course. For me, it has more to do with the attitude of most guys I've met here...at least the white guys. They just don't want to date fat women, or at least consider having a long-term relationship with one. We're ok for a one night stand or occasional booty call, but they're not interested in much else, at least in my experience. Most black and Hispanic guys in LA (not all, but most, from my experience) have no problem dating fat women. I've dated some but usually find that we don't share a lot of cultural interests, which really doesn't lend itself to a serious relationship.

I just have to keep telling myself that I'll find the right guy some day. I sincerely doubt I'll find him in LA, but I'm trying to keep my options open. As soon as the economy's more stable, I'd like to find a new place to call home. But until that happens, I just have to work with what I've got.

Couldn't agree more. LA is too stuck up.

I stayed in LA for a couple of weeks... Struck me as a place people went to earn money, rather than to really *live* life....

Yes, I would change my preference in a heartbeat if I could. A much bigger dating pool, social acceptance and support of what you like, partners with generally higher self-esteem, less health issues in a partner and a longer average lifespan, no conflict between sexual urges and and concern for partner's well-being, etc.

I mean, I've always had big girlfriends and I'm 100% about fat acceptance, and so on, but honestly, changing to a non-FA seems like a total no-brainer to me.

I am very sad to say that I definately would change my FA-ness if I could. Not being a FA would have made my life much easier, especially here in Sweden. Sweden is a very hard country to live in for BBWs and FAs. But in my case changing my FA-ness isn't about getting a larger dating pool, on the contrary. Since 3,5 year I live with a wonderful BBW. Before I met her I always thought that the alarms about obesity being dangerous was greatly exagerated. Now I realise that the health of a BBW is bad even if my girlfriend is a rather healthy BBW. I feel bad for being attracted to something that is bad for her health and limits her in our life.

I realise that I probably will get flamed for this statement but I needed to vent. I am sorry.

I think I would just go with being bisizual if I had the power, but I don't so what's even the point to think about it. I'm quite happy being a FA anyways

Oh god no. The beauty, femininity and sexual presence of fat women is remarkable. I will never think of nor feel anything other than attraction, appreciation, admiration and desire for fat women. Moderate sizes, big sizes, huge sizes, super sizes, ultra sizes and everything under the fat sun.

The thread premise doesn't really resonate with me. Changing my preferences would mean changing who I am, so that's an automatic no regardless of any other consideration.

Sure, I'd like to change one aspect of my admiration for plus-size women: reconfiguring my courting behaviour to be more attractive to full-figured women. Not my thinking; just my external behaviour.

But I suppose that's not really an aspect of attraction; just a question of wishing that somewhere along the way I had been able to successfully develop what people now call "game."

Good thread Idea. I've always suspected there were other FA's that were bitter about their nature (myself included)

I wouldn't change it. I think it makes a real man and that to me is the ultimate form of badassery.

I have no complaints about who and what I'm attracted to. I love fat men, plain and simple.

Not for the world.
I'd like to change the way I deal with things, and some of my family's comments and reactions to my partner fall under that.
Because I care about both my family and my partner so much, I want them to like each other. And the initial... reluctance to get to know him that they've shown is hurtful.
But I'd rather work to change the fact that it hurts me than change who I am.

There's nothing shameful or wrong about any of my sexual preferences, so what could I possibly gain from changing them?
