Too Tubby for Tinsel Town
The Right Network ^ | 12-21-2010 | Brian Cherry

Posted on 12/28/2010 8:09:02 AM PST by The_Tick_01

Is Christina Hendricks too fat? I don’t know. Does Baskin Robbins have too many flavors? Is Rudolph’s nose too shiny? Was Mother Theresa selfless? Are the fellas from the National Organization of Women too shrill and judgmental?

Well okay, the answer to that last one is “yes”, but any guy with a functional “Y” chromosome and an IQ higher than of the average Sponge Bob character would answer a resounding “NO” regarding the lovely Ms. Hendricks and the state of her figure. Ever since she appeared on the hit AMC show “Mad Men”, Christina has done for the male population as a whole what Viagra is supposed to do for men in the throes of a raging midlife crisis. Of course her curvaceous figure is a break from what has become the accepted norm, and that means that the media is going to push back against this curvy anomaly.

Last January Christina Hendricks showed up that the Golden Globe Awards in a ruffled dress from designer Christian Siriano. New York Times fashion blogger, Cathy Horyn, quoted a stylist who said regarding Christina that “You don’t put a big girl in a big dress. That’s rule number one.” By now most of us know that the terms like “Husky”, “Rubenesque”, and “Big Girl” are just code words for “fat ass”.

Desirable women, like rock climbing, require handholds.

Barbara Eden did a guest appearance on the Andy Griffith show once. It was perfection.

And I’m still in the line outside Floyd’s Barbershop waiting for my manicure. Panting, along with all the other male residents of Mayberry.

Gorgeous woman.

I don;t recall the numbers, but her publicity put her waistline at a laughable number, if you have seen an honest photo of her from the side. I think she has a bit more tummy fat than is healthy, but she's an attractive chubby woman.

Still, without the photoshopping, excessive uplift, and pictures posed with her hip cocked to distract from her belly, she has certain real world limitations to her figure:

And if anyone wants to accuse me of preferring starved women, y'all can go blow, because there is a nice lean athletic happy medium having nothing to do with starved runway models.

Gay men want all women to look like boys.

As a qualified heterosexual, I affirm that she quite attractive. Now what was I doing?

On the Firefly DVD set, they talk about casting. When she auditioned, they thought she was too skinny and asked her to put on weight for the part. I agree, she looked good on the show.

Based on her published height of 5’7 1/2” and measurements of 38-32-38 I calculated her body fat at 28.5%. Her BMI would be 26.2. That’s slightly elevated with a body fat percentage at the upper limit of acceptable for a woman.

If they were going to lie and report a 32” waist on a woman, it must really be larger. Ya think?

Other than the one I have posted, I have yet to see a photo of her that wasn’t posed or modified (or both) to minimize the apparent size of her belly.

I'm sure you could devise some sort of workout program that would benefit the poor lass.

Christina Hendricks is fat in all the right places!!!

I am a male who LIKES big boobs to a certain extent. My wife and I have two friends who have undergone breast reduction surgery. Another lady three doors down the street is considering the same surgery. All were / are 44+.

The lady down the street said that after her kids stopped nursing, the "big tits just get in the way" for everything from playing cards to making love. Our "little itty tittie committee" neighbor asked that her removed portion be given to her.

Yes, that NYT blogger seems like a bit of a bitch, but in this article, I have to disagree with this:

Carmen Manheim is a “big girl”. Aretha Franklin is a “big girl”.

No. They are fat. And not just a little bit.

I also object to the misappropriation of "curvy" as a euphemism for chubby/chunky/fat, as well as the false "choice" that if a woman isn't a skinny stick, she's big and there's nothing in between.
