also the term fat is subjective. medically speaking it is unhealthy, however many would consider perfectly healthy women to be fat and that is the "definition" of fat that many women are trying to fight against.
in a way it does, but the meaning of the term is that gay men may prefer to work with women with minimal breasts and other feminine features. it may be more comfortable for them. it is also much easier to cut cloth for women with minimal curves. although the first statement is subjective, that is a fact.
it is also a fact that many in the mainstream follow models as a measuring stick for beauty, a measuring stick that used to involve a lot more curves a few decades ago.
This isn't about beauty, it's about health. Being fat shouldn't be embraced because it downgrades quality of life and shortens it. And anorexia shouldn't be embraced either, for the same reason.
Also, saying women with curves are "real women" kind of goes against everything you said.
BTW, this obsession with skinny is being driven by the modelling/fashion industry which is dominated by gay men and women. skinny, curveless girls are much easier to make clothes for, and are likely much more comfortable for gay men who would rather not stare at a real woman with breasts and all. a flat plank would be much more preferred for them.
also the whole point of a model is to be a hanger for clothes, not a beauty icon. your supposed to be staring at the outfit, not the girl.
being obese should not be embraced, but people can have a variety of figures that have nothing to do with eating/exercise habits.
personally "fat" is not attractive, but neither are the stick figures often shown on runways. there are a variety of preferences and just cause you don't fit the mainstream standard doesn't mean your ugly.
heck, even big girls can find chubby chasers who find them gorgeous. beauty is subjective and being overly judgemental is ignorant.
We should do our best to stay healthy and in shape, but you should never judge a person on whether or not they are a certain size
