morbidly obese white male SJW contest

Post by William » Sat Sep 08, 2018 8:01 am

Here is the contest, be the first to show me a morbidly obese straight white male as an icon for progressive shiboleths who is

a) making a lot of money for his looks due to "body positivity"

b) glorified for looking the way he does

c) it doesn't count if the morbidly obese man is shilling for cuckoldry, asexuality, or some other self negating sexual position, which seems to be a progressive "thing" now when it comes to males.

good luck
I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I could make the speakers and writers among them thoroughly ashamed ever again to employ the term 'social justice'.

I get the idea that women wanting to look like concentration camp victims is unhealthy but so is being a tub of lard. What ever happened to the Golden Mean?

I have it in the back of my head somewhere that I was told modeling as a business doesn't actually like female shapes that are "normal" for whatever reason. They do seem obsessed with heroin / little boy / anorexic looks on one end and now this i guess.

It's also not unusual I guess for fashion magazines to promote really unflattering looks and presentations and pass it off as good taste. Probably their version of "avant guard art" that's really fake art.

I think the argument I heard was that clothes essentially look best on very tall and extremely thin women which is why that is the supermodel look. Also at that end you certainly do get the fake art stuff - £10000 for a sack because only you understand it's true meaning

Thick girls are more attractive though. If you disagree you’re wrong/blind/gay.

It seems we're heading into Keyene's beauty contest territory.

Ha! I, for one, would really like to hear them articulate that out loud.

That sounds familiar to me. Either way, that makes a lot of sense.

While the hippo's the obvious attention grabber, the "Is Success an Illness?" headline's also worthy of note as it runs along similar lines:

It's ok to be dangerously overweight, and those people who are more successful than you, there's something wrong with them.

Attack, attack, attack. Demonise the normal, normalise the wrong.

“Every calorie says yes to life!”

But really though, I don’t think we’re the target market for a magazine titled Cosmopolitan.
