    Stressed men drawn to heavy women

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-19180983 So what do you all make of this? I think that while it isn't true for me (i.e. when stress-free, I am still drawn to larger women) there might be something to this. The researchers are legit and have credibility in their work in...

    The FA closet. Are you in or out?

    This poll is accompanying the FA Myth thread: "Most FAs choose to indefinitely stay in the closet rather than attempt to forge real life relationships with fat people" Whether you identify as an FA or not, obviously this is a poll that can only be answered by people who have an aesthetic...

    The Naughty Kitchen with Chef Blythe Beck

    I caught an ad for a new show called 'The Naughty Kitchen' today on Oxygen. This is no Top Chef Masters and (thankfully) the improbably thin Kelly Choi is not presenting...(I don't trust a food critic that looks looks like they never eat). In fact the head chef is a vivacious and brassy BBW who...

    Doing Away With the Extra F?

    Does the collective noun for "people wot are attracted to fat people..." need to be gender-specific? At the moment there are FFAs and FAs... The advent of this board has begun to underline the commonalities that I'd always assumed... which raises the following questions? To the "FFAs", is the...
