I like hearing the word "fat". Especially if it has the word "woman" after it. Hearing those two together give me happy thoughts.

Whew. I so want to say something flirty to you, but I'm afraid I'd be committing a felony.

Yes, going up to a girl you just met and saying "(insert name here) you're faaaaat" is not the best idea.

I wonder how many paysiters would do that though.

I don't mind using the word "fat". It honestly depends on the girl. Some women HATE that word fat because of all the negativity they feel comes with it. However, there are women that get annoyed if you avoid the word "fat" and say "big", "fluffy", "thick", etc, and they'll say "I'm fat. Don't call me anything else." I really don't care what word I use as long as it won't offend someone when really I see it as a compliment.

i met a several guys lately who would easily qualify as FAs, even though they don't like the definition. they've all made the comment unsolicited that they didn't understand why women should call themselves fat or BBW or SSBBW etc...They've basically said something akin to : they think they should just BE beautiful women and leave it at that. no need to qualify anything. they make a good point.

The thing is, I don't really think most people do that, in their everyday lives. In my experience, the terms BBW, SSBBW, FA, etc., are used mostly online, just for easy clarification/identification purposes. Maybe I'm being naive, but I just don't see all the chafing at labeling that is (as far as I can see, anyway) pretty simple and surface-oriented. Fat, really fat, or likes (some) fat chicks/dudes. Big deal. It's not a definition of one's character, or a legally binding contract that this is all you will ever be or be attracted to. The term "SSBBW" just doesn't exist in my everyday life. Being very fat is a part of my everyday life, of course, but I don't structure my identity around the term "SSBBW", nor do BBWs or F/FAs, as far as I can tell.

i hear ya. it is a good point that maybe it shouldn't be so important online or elsewhere to people who do lean on the identity a lot. maybe we do just need to concentrate more on just being people first. its not as though other folks don't have challenges particular to them. maybe people do sometimes make too much of it online and IRL? it could be that may be an element that stands in the way of acceptance for some --because not everybody who is fat is orienting ourselves in the world just as a human being but just as a body with a sexual or social designation?

This, in a nutshell. Plus when encountering fat people whom you are not sure of their feelings toward the term. In my case of being skinny some get offended if someone of my size uses the term at all assuming an insinuated level of insult in its usage, and then there are many fat people who feel free to use the word themselves but get offended with someone else using it in reference to them or their size. It's best to avoid the term until you know.

Don't you call me pudgy, portly or stout.
Just tell me now once again, who's fat.

I use the word in my blog and writings.

I like to view people through more than the lense word fat.

I admit I avoid using the word fat around my female friends who fit the description, only because I've learned from experience that just because I don't think of it as an insult, it doesn't mean other people won't take it that way. (I have been known to call someone that, and quickly backtrack by saying "I meant P-H-A-T" which elicits groans due to the bad pun, but little else)

I use the word around people who I know aren't offended by it. I think the connotation has changed over teh years for "fat" and it's not viewed as negatively anymore...it all depends on the person though because someone really self conscious about their weight will probably be mortified if they are called fat by someone.

I don't think refering to myself as fat *IS* putting myself down. I actually find myself feeling more offended when I'm told I'm *not* fat. It's like why would I lie about something so bloody obvious and do they think I'm so stupid that I'm suddenly going to say 'oh hang on wait, I've been totally wrong I'm not actually fat. woohoo!?'

Anyways, sorry for the little rant. What are your thoughts on the matter?

I agree completely... fat is a biological term and for any FA to avoid using it is strange to say the least. I use it, often, since I desire FAT women, not "big" not "plus sized" not "chubby"... FAT
