Default A Universal Symbol for FAs?

Taking from James' past thread...

A universal symbol for Fat Acceptance

What do you think of the idea of a universal symbol for FAs? Perhaps the same symbol with specific colours to designate the FA's gender or gender preference?

I'd like to hear your ideas!

I think this is an excellent idea. Fat Admirers and/or Fat Acceptance in general needs a motif/logo/badge of identification of some sort.

The letters "FA" are heavily associated with 'Football Association' in England, which might make their use slightly problematic? That doesn't mean that they shouldn't be used though....

I look forward to seeing if something materializes for this!

I like the idea of a general size acceptance symbol but one for FA's seems.. weird. I mean, guys who like brunettes don't go around wearing BRUNETTES ONLY shirts.

Who am I to resist a design challenge?
Right now I've got two versions. I was thinking at least the F could be colored to represent the gender of the FA's preference, but then I kinda got tripped up on bisexual, as I haven't really decided how to divide it up into two colors or purple maybe? It's not heart surgery though, so any fiddling or changes can be made.

Rounded logo:


Plus symbol with the plus colored accordingly and the A being the admirer.
AN A IS YOU.

I think it should just be the Gonzo fist with a sandwich.

With regard to the different colors, it reminds me of the gay flag system, which I find simultaneously confusing and awesome.

Im not a photoshop wiz and the "ghetto Booty" with thong isn't what I had hoped, I just threw this together (use your imagination). I do however like how it can be mistaken for "Fat Ass"...but still somehow work.

How about silhouettes of the pairing one seeks. Either silhouette could be fat, one could be non-fat, both could be men or women, polys could have several...

Hey! That was only pic I could find quickly that had the right perspective!

The FA initials have so many connotations that the NY State Dept of Motor Vehicles would not approve my application for a custom plate for my bike that had FA any where in it; 1 FA, FA 1, UR FA, FA4U - all nada.

FAThe large F represents the beautiful people we adore and the small A refers to us smaller sized admirers. Admittedly, this symbol is more specific to BBW/averaged-sized male FA couples.

Agreed, and thin women/men shouldn't even be mentioned regardless of whether or not one finds them attractive. That has nothing to do with it.

Silhouettes work for me. I'm not too keen on terms myself really, especially when they can have multiple meanings..

See, i see being an Fa as part of my sexuality as much as my gender sexuality. For me its not just about preference. I dig chicks in glasses but its just a wee added like so i dont feel a logo is necessary for that.

I'm opposed to the idea because I think a symbol for FA's begs to be abused: it's analogous to plastering fish symbols and 'Jesus is Lord' stickers all over your car. I've heard of shady businessmen who stuck fish symbols on their shops tp persuade prospective customers of their honesty, and I can imagine all the frats who would buy FA sweatshirts to facilitate a night of "hogging." If you want people to know you're an FA, don't tell them: show them!
