i can't speak for Verdant, but i can speak for myself (and hope it's not too late to address this portion of the discussion.

when i see a skinny woman with a pretty face, i can admit she's pretty... from an objective standpoint. there will be no sexual attraction to her (read: skinny girls don't give me boners), but i'd understand that she was pretty.

What about if you saw a handsom fat or thin guy? could you find them pretty or handsome even?

I read that we rate the attractiveness of a face from the first few weeks of life. We have a preference for symmetrical faces because we form prototypes for what a face should look like and so adhere to this preference for symmetry as we get older.

I think the research in that article is pretty persuasive. There are other qualities that it doesn't address, such as whether fat in the female face helps beautify it. I think it definitely does, and I'd say most people instinctively do too (think of dolls' faces), if they're attracted to women. On the other hand, people who are attracted to men (whether they're men or women) seem to like the chiselled look instead, which is probably why the fashion world loves female models with androgynous-looking hard faces.

But for symmetry and all, I'd wager that research is correct.

I disagree with your premise about fat faces and gender (I'd bet every FFA at Dims would, too), but what are you trying to claim about the fashion industry? If it is another tired variation on the idea that gay men run the fashion world and they make all the women conform to their beliefs about attractiveness, and if it weren't for those pesky gay men, all women in media would be plump luscious BBWs, then knock it off. Its a terrible, erroneous stereotype, and it also ignores the fact that 'the gays' have a thriving bear/fat subculture themselves.

FWIW, fat in faces, to me at least, equals youth, regardless of the gender of the person with the fat face. Youth, to me, is not a gendered commodity, so I appreciate fat masculine faces and fat feminine faces the same.

This!

Also, Kioewen, if you are at all familiar with catwalk models, you will know that models with round-ish faces and traditionally feminine, doll-like features (eg. Lily Cole, Gemma Ward) have been extremely popular for quite a while now, more so than the ones with chiselled, traditionally masculine features like Gisele.


This is Lily Cole. Does she look the slightest bit manly to you?

I am attracted to women only and I love androgynous faces. Doll faces don't do much for me. I know straight FFAs and even non-FFAs who tell me they prefer a guy who looks soft and even "pretty".

just wondering, does anyone here own up to intentionally hooking up w girls for their bangin body and overlooking a face that - for the sake of no negativity let's not say ugly - isn't their ideal?

i've been with a few. who cares? you find something you like about someone and bang it. i never really saw the point of caring how exact someone looks when the end goal is a romp or two. if you're marrying them that's a different story. it's not about standards though, it's about meeting your personal demands and making yourself happy.

This is tough, because my ideal BBW would have to be 400 pounds with a double stomach, huge thighs and arms and a pretty face, I will have to think about it.
