Fat Babes

Jen Oaks announced yesterday that she’s hard at work on a 2012 “fat babe” calendar. Looks like my Christmas shopping is done.

(The fat babe above is likely Miss March.)

  1. Oh, well, as long as she isn’t tagging

    I recognize it’s a trite and oft-repeated point, but I think it’s important to note the fallacy of labeling healthy/curvy women as “fat” when it occurs. The woman in the drawing is not fat. I imagine her BMI would be on the high side of normal. Again, I don’t want to get all overly-sensitive, but we *do* live in a society where one of this year’s Oscar nominees features Natalie Portman looking so dangerously thin that I can’t believe she is able to walk. Underweight is not average/normal. (I also recognize that it’s Jen who used the word “fat,” not you.) OK, rant over.

    • If it helps you relax, be assured that I wouldn’t touch Natalie Portman with a ten-foot pole, but this cartoon imaginary woman fits my fancy perfectly.

      I agree that the drawing of the woman on this post is not really fat. But, as a girl from the other end of the spectrum (i.e. the Natalie Portman end), I find it a bit tiresome defending my BMI. I guess I’m like a Natalie Portman, who you call dangerously thin, only 6 feet tall. And I’ve been this way my whole life, and endured my share of snarky anorexia/bulemia jokes. In ultra P.C. SF, it’s OK to celebrate the high side of the BMI, and equally OK to snark on us skinnies.

      Fat is actually the preferred word amongst those in the fat acceptance movement. Most of the well known FA bloggers prefer the word to any other discription.
      For some great Fat Acceptance 101, check out this site: http://www.therotund.com/?page_id=190 Who is considered fat depends on the culture. In the US, that is generally a size 14 and up. Fat is not a bad thing!

      Thank you Allen for posting this!

      Disagree. I’m 6’2 200 fit and muscular, and I’m “overweight” according to the BMI. This gal would be obese by BMI standards.

    Big ass, big boobs and a bottle of hooch. Sign me up.

    WTF where was the fat girl love when I lived in SF?!!? I moved all the way to Greece, where I practically feel anorexic compared to the women I see around me. I was convinced there *were* no fatties (other than me) living in the Bay Area.

  5. We’re here!
    We’re spheres!
    Get used to…hey, are you going to finish that?
