Big is beautiful

The first month of the new year is almost over, and for the past 26 days it seems like I've heard nothing but weight loss stories, or some kind of weight criticism.

Now, I'm not going to criticize anyone for losing weight, for the right reasons, but to do it just to be a "skinny bitch" seems to be...well, it's just flat out wrong!

I've mentioned on this blog before that it seems as if certain aspects of the media want men (or women) to want these waif thin women. For me, personally, I'm one to embrace curves.

The little women is quite well endowed in the front and back and not ashamed of them. For some reason, the media seems to be hell bent on tearing down and ruining our favorite "big" actresses/singers. The list of casualties include Scarlett Johnasson, Toccarra Jones, Jennifer Hudson, Raven Symone, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Carrie Underwood, Sara Rue, Jennifer Connelly, Jennifer Love-Hewitt, Beyonce, Tyra Banks, and the list goes on and on.

Ugh...I get so frustrated when I think about things like this. To make matter worse, the producers of some show in Las Vegas, think that that former Playboy playmate and uber hottie Holly she is

Now, tell me, does she look anywhere close to fat? Granted, this picture is touched up and photoshopped a bit, but not that much.

I'll go even further. It is no secret that the women in WWE tend to be the model type, and the ones that aren't end up being the kind that just throw their, pardon the pun, weight around. Well, apparently, they did a storyline awhile back criticizing the weight of one of their "divas". Shortly thereafter, she was released and is now a star in a rival promotion.

You would think they'd have learned from that experience, right? Wrong! Look at WWE diva Natalya

This is an untouched picture. As you can see, she's a bit on the thicker side...probably more muscle than actual fat, but one of the announcers called her "hefty" on the air Monday, from what I hear. Whether this is a storyline or what remains to be seen, but what do you think? I happen to know more than a few women who would love to be her size!

I love this quote she gave the next day "...this diva is built in the front, stacked in the back and proud of every inch!!!"

Forgetting the fact that she's a wrestler, that is a really good quote. I may use it as the quote of the

I still have to ask you, what is has our society disintegrated into that these two are "fat"?

Here are a few musical tributes to the bigger girls. At least these guys aren't obsessed with the "skinny bitches"

I may be one of the few in the world that has this view, but I'm going to end this post by saying that women are beautiful, no matter what size they are...though I prefer curves ;)
