So the other day I was on facebook and I came across this picture from a magazine that said "78% of men would rather date a confident plus size woman than an insecure super-model" I then went and put on my instagram (@thickgrlscloset) and my tumblr. The feedback started out on a positive note, but lately I've been seeing some of the comments and opinions of both men and women alike and I'm a little bothered. Please don't get me wrong your opinion is your opinion and I'm not here to change that. But this is how I feel.
I believe the purpose of what was said was not say "ok its cool for you to be fat" but rather, a reminder that a man is not looking at just your body, but the way in which you carry yourself. Like why can't folks just take it for what it is? I mean lets be real I can't stand an insecure female, especially a curvy women that's insecure. It just bothers me. And I know that if I can't stand that type of female, no man can. No dude wants to talk to, date, sleep with, or deal with woman that has no confidence in herself regardless of her body size. Even the worse male chauvinist would get fed up with her insecurities.
I think too many people are looking at the negative side. I can't tell you how many girls say men don't like thick/curvy/plus size women. But when we hear that there are men out there who actually care, we get bent out of shape. I'm not saying that we have live and die but this random statistic but when I read it for the first time I had to flip my hair one good time and hit my Tyra Banks walk cause I felt like "hell yea" lol( OK maybe that's just me)
The point of what was said...is simple. Men want a confident woman. To them that is sexier that whether or not she can shop in the main line at Forever 21. Maybe you have a different POV let me know
