bbw stands for "big beautiful women." these are woman who are overweight and still feel deserving of love because they realize that they don't have to live up to certain "standards" that society has set in order to be pretty. this obviously takes self-esteem and courage, and it's a landmark to get past. an overweight woman who still feels beautiful is very admirable.

some of the stereotypes that have been written before mine are ridiculous. it seems like half the people on this website think anyone who is overweight sits around all day, never gets off their ass, and only moves when they want to go from the couch to the fridge. this is so far from the truth, and i feel the need to set the record straight. most overweight woman... AND men... are normal people walking around living their lives just like anyone else. i'm sure many would be surprised to see the eating habits of an overweight person. it isn't necessarily a person who sits around eating McDonalds all day, so you best get that out of your head.

anyone who is still reading is probably smirking in their seat, muttering "yeah okay fattie." and it is true, i'm overweight, though i am not disgusting. i also have a full-time job, am a part time student, am involved in many activities. i also eat three meals a day just like everyone else. i feel beautiful, but not because i'm overweight and that means i am beautiful, but because i have forced myself to look beyond magazines and the like for answers on what society expects out of me, and i realize that unconventional and non-traditional can also have beauty in it. i can appreciate my body so much more than a thin person, because i've had to work at it, i have never taken it for granted. that is what a bbw is, and this is what she does.

also, this stereotype that fat automatically equals lazy is just plain ignorant, people, and it proves that those who say things like that really don't know a whole lot about overweight people. obviously, there is a difference between someone who is HUGE and someone who is just overweight; most who call themselves "bbw" fall into the second category.

saying that bbw are a joke because fat is ugly is pointless. the fact that you or everyone on the face of the earth finds them disgusting is not going to make a difference. most who have weight problems have struggled with it all their life and are used to being treated differently, are used harsh attitudes and stereotypes and criticisms. the fact that they are able to rise above that and still feel beautiful is something to be admired. it always makes me happy to see a chubby girl who has self-confidence, because i know how hard it is, and know it is a struggle, and anyone that can rise above their shortcomings is obviously an amazing person.
What's with all these skinny bitches? All the bbw must be in another club tonight.
