You’ve heard it, so it must be true! In saner times, skinny was disgusting. Ew! Who wants a slender girl when a Real Woman (TM) is available? See this old advertisement for validation:
That settles it, ladies! If you’re not Thigh-er’d you’re not Desired!
… or could it be that maybe being sickly thin is unattractive? Hmmm… that does seem to match up with what I’ve been saying for years….
This requires more research.
My plump, feminist professor taught me that men used to love fatsos. Surely this obsession with being thin is only a recent thing! In fact, only a couple of generations ago, I was told, only the curviest women were in vogue.
Let the advertisements speak for themselves:
Wait. That doesn’t seem right. Let me try again.
Whoops! These ol’ time ads I was told about aren’t exactly making the case that FAT was where it formerly was AT. I’ll have to dig deeper….
Hold on; I know there’s a backlash against slender girls somewhere in the archives! Ah, here it is:
You know what? These vintage ads are irrelevant, anyway.
Today, only the most SJW-approved companies know what’s acceptable. Let’s weigh in with that most Healthy At Every Size stalwart and purveyor of the most Starbucks-worthy ad campaigns, APPLE:
Whaaale…………that didn’t quite hit the mark. Let’s try a company whose ads are targeted ONLY to us Body-Positive Women! Playtex, show us what you’ve got!
Not that one, the other one!
Surely somebody here can help me find the photos I need. Show me those pics where “curvy” girls are beautiful! I will gladly publish them here.
