Default Tired of Thin

We FA's live in a world where Women are constantly splashed from print and screen that I could care less about.

I just wish that sometime the Book, Comic Book, TV, Movie sweatheart is one that I could enjoy.

It just gets old after a while. I would like a fat leading woman.

Seriously, why do they keep trying to sell stuff using an image that most people are interested in?

There are some movies out there with that, A movie I love is called beautiful girls, there is one with Camryn Manheim as a want to be comedian but I cant remember what it is called

It is a real shame but I have noticed a lot more larger people over here making it into the cast of musicals and such as well so mayby the trend is slowly changing

After all Gilmore girls had 1 main character and two sub characters that are BBW's and there are a few on other shows not just as the token fat chicks so whilst progress is extremely slow that is a lot more people than there used to be, change takes time, but hey if someone wanted to make a movie with plus sized chicks that was a great movie I am all for that to

Google "bbw actress" and a few lists pop up. One movie comes to mind that I really liked was "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". Oh, and "Bridget Jones Diary" and its sequel (although the actress gained weight for the film). I also noticed that Bollywood seems to be very size friendly towards their female leads.

I would like to see more BBWs in mainstream played for sex appeal. It might help little girls form a more confident self-image and help budding FAs make it through puberty. A guy can dream, can't he?

That may have been The Young and the Restless. Years ago. I think the character's name was Beth. She was beautiful and hot and married to a hunk (named Brad, I think) but all storylines about her revolved about her insecurity about her size, inability to love herself, and the female bully who tortured her for sport. Also everyone pitied her and she was maybe only a size 12! I stopped watching the show because everything about her was so depressing.

Wow, if that's not an obscure reference to the movie "They Live", then I don't know what is.

But seriously, I agree with you. People are sheep. It's part of human nature, which I can understand. The problem I have is that most people won't admit they are just following the herd. Instead they feel they have to justify their default "decision", so they mindlessly quote whatever anti-fat rationalizations they hear in the media. This produces a cycle of discrimination and hatred (both self-hatred and hatred of others), which in turn allows other people to cash in on the herd mentality with diet scams and worse. Those who are cashing in have everything to gain from perpetuating the anti-fat message, so the cycle continues...
