Why are British girls so fat?
The Telegraph ^ | 05/29 | Louisa Peacock

Posted on 05/29/2014 8:50:23 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

British women are officially the fattest in Europe. Well, hoorah for us. Of all the labels we could have picked up – the drunkest, the laziest, the most promiscuous – this one can't be that bad, can it?

And what about those people who actually choose to be fat? A growing group of overweight activists claim it's OK and healthy to be overweight. Fat activism, as they call it – yes that's a thing now – is about recognising that all bodies are fine. Nowadays, the 'fat movement' is all about challenging prejudices.

Except, we should be worried. Accepting obesity is just as bad, in my book, as accepting 'skinny'. Both are more often than not unhealthy. Both conditions also often lead to the people concerned being unhappy

Well, I wouldn’t consider myself a chubby chaser by any means, but if it’s between a bit of beef and the anorexic adolescent boy bodies promoted as ‘beautiful and healthy’ today, Bring on the voluptuous!

Banger

An intense party, which involves large amounts of drinking, beer pong, and plenty of skanks to grind on. Always leaving the house a total mess.

Guy:Yo cuz, where da Banger at?
Guy2: Banger in Union tonight playboy, where you at?

Indeed. We right wingers are strong adherents to the rules. Whereas with leftists, they hate the rules. Which is why many are gay.\

The article isn't talking about women who are voluptuous. They are talking about fat:

Catherine Zeta-Jones is voluptuous. The woman below is on the borderline between voluptuous and fat. The women above are fat.

In all seriousness, there has been, for some time, plenty of supposedly hetro men out there that consider something like (my favorite example) Marylin Monroe to be, and I quote, “A fat pig”.

Read the comments on some of the sites like Funny Junk or Cheezburger.com when you see a pic there of a non aneorexic boy body. So when the media says “fat” they could well mean what most people see as normal.

The one on the bottom is fat and needs to lose about 40 pounds. (guessing that she's about 5'5" or 5'6")

The two in the upper pic are just flat-out obese.

Marilyn may have been messed up in some ways, but she was an attractive member of the opposite sex.

I think their economy has been so bad for so long that most families do not eat right in England...it is expensive to buy meat in England....so much is imported. Growing vegetables..where? Not a lot of available land there anymore. The same is becoming so here for the average family... even with all the ranches, chicken farms, and pig farms.

Not Millicent Bucket. Millicent Boo-KAY.

Americans don't fully grasp just how pretentious that came across to your average English audience. If anything, they're Francophobe, refusing to pronounce French words as the French do. Valet and claret are pronounced VAL-et and CLAR-et just to annoy the Frogs, lol.
