I'm not an FA - just looking for one! LOL! But I'm popping in with this story anyway! LOL!

My dad was a big guy all his life. My mom never weighed more than 120 unless she was pregnant. While growing up, I noticed that mom's favorite actors were chubby guys. She loved Jackie Gleason (I always thought my Dad looked just like him), Lou Costello, and in later years John candy and Brian Dennehy. One day we were watching a movie where Brian Dennehy plays John Wayne Gacy and she said something about it bothering her that he was playing such a terrible character/person. I said to her "Know why it bothers you?" because I was going to tease her about him being chubby and she knocked my socks off when she replied snarkily "Yes, because I'm an FA"!!! OMG!! She had actually been listening to me talking about NAAFA, the size acceptance movement and the terms FA/BBW!!! Mind you - the woman was 60+ years old at the time she said this!!! How cute was she??? I just laughed and said "Yes, you are" and she smiled and said "I know"... God I miss her...

Oh god.....the awkward memories!!!!

My father and grandfather would hug my ex extra tight or close- for a very long time whenever they greeted her. And then on occasion they would put their arms around her holding her very close during conversations. She never got weirded out by it (bless her) and thought it was quite hilarious, actually (thankfully). She would even go "Hey... Watch this!" and would instigate hugs or other kinds of awkwardness.

Gah. It's still strange and embarrassing to think about! But it did make me realize I wasn't the only FA in my family. Either that or my family is very affectionate....

Now I have to know.... is there a FA gene?! haha

I’m quite positive that neither of my parents are FA. The closest to an FA figure I had growing up was a family that lived across the road from us for several years, where in hindsight I’d say that at least the mom, and possibly the Dad, were FA—certainly I knew that there was a different vibe about fat in that house, and that helped make me aware of my interest in fat in the latter years of kid-hood.

My son is hitting the age where he has some interest in girls, although he’s still trying to deny it. All the signs would point to him preferring tall willowy girls with long hair, but that could just be coincidence of the opportunity/personalities. However I rather doubt that he’s going to be an FA.

For one more data point, a friend’s father (again in hindsight) was most likely an FA, and his son thinks any woman who on whom you cannot count ribs is disgustingly fat. (Well, more of a former friend, really….I tired of his attitudes about that as well as some other things).

So, is there an FA gene? I've often wondered about this. The limited evidence of this thread is inconclusive. Both my parents, and my grandparents as well, are/were anti-fat. In my own case, both the genetic and environmental explanations for my own attraction to fat girls seem weak. I prefer to think some kind of karmic influence is responsible. I mean, I was strongly interested in fat chicks long before I hit puberty, and exhaustive search of my memory fails to reveal any formative or Freudian early experiences that could have triggered it. I fantasized about feeding girls to immobility when I was 7 years old. While I certainly can't rule out a genetic or environmental cause, I prefer to entertain a mystical explanation. The archeological record indicates that SSBBWs were admired, if not worshiped, for the vast majority of human history. I'm just an archaic vestige of that tradition.

I'm relatively convinced that my father is a fat admirer and possibly even a feeder as well. To some extent, anyway.
I retain that my admiration for the exquisite beauty of fat women to be ingrained in my DNA as well as my blanket submission to indulge in the bigness of such desirable ladies.

My mom was a big woman. Dad loved her for a lot of reasons, and that was among them. He never made a secret of it. He didn't jump for joy or cheer when I started dating larger ladies, but he let me know he thought I had chosen wisely.

Edited to add: I'm very sad for you because of your family's disapproval. No snark, I'm completely serious. A family should stick together, not be brainlessly judgmental of each other.

Agreed.

I doubt any of my own family are FAs; they're respectfully quiet on the subject in my presence. Other than concern for the health of their granddaughter, my parents have said nothing.

During a recent visit, my brother noticed me watching people at a casino and asked, 'still into those big girls, hunh?' I figured he was just making conversation, as all I saw was a mob of people in the casino on a Saturday night. 'They're called sins of the flesh for a reason,' I said, with a smile; I've never made a secret of my tastes.

My mom, maybe, my father and my stepfather were both husky guys. She might have been attracted to their size but I think it honestly had much more to do with personality since they were both big into making sure everyone was laughing. My mother doesn't like to talk about either man/marriage very much so I may never know the truth.

My parents have never had much to say about my sexual preferences/dating habits, etc.

My brother's current gf and her sister LOVE fat guys. They're both 5'4''-ish and 120lbs or so. I poke fun at them (in a nice way, of course) and they don't deny it. They don't know what FA/BHM/etc. means...so I just say that it is cute and move on. Both sisters always seem to like heavier men. My brother isn't heavy (he's 5'4'' and 119lbs or so), she just happened to fall for him...however, when they broke up for a minute, she dated several larger men (think Kevin James but taller). I like when people openly see whoever they want - regardless of what society thinks!

Oops...I'm not an FA, nor are my parents lol. But I just wanted to point out that siblings influence each other...or at least in this case, maybe?
