A new article published in the Wall Street Journal a couple of days ago verifies what everyone on this forum has been saying all along: Being fuller figured renders a woman both healthier and more attractive than if she's thin. Literally the best thing that a woman can do to improve her health and beauty is to gain 10 pounds.

Unfortunately, the article article (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704464704575208082569868428.html?mod=WSJ_hps_MIDDLEForthNews) is rife with mixed and even negative messages, but here are the salient points:

A Case for Those Extra 10 Pounds

By KATHERINE ROSMAN

APRIL 27, 2010

A body of research is emerging that suggests that there's little risk to carrying a few extra pounds. And there may even be some benefit. Indeed, people who are 10-to-15 pounds overweight appear to have no greater risk of dying than those of so-called "normal" weight. Other studies have shown that those who are overweight are no more likely to die from cancer or cardiovascular disease. Also, being a little overweight may help stave off osteoporosis. And it can make you look younger, too.

"Just because someone is slightly overweight doesn't mean they're not healthy," says Keri Gans

In two related studies conducted in 2005 and 2007 and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, CDC senior scientist Katherine M. Flegal found that people who are overweight (according to the BMI) are no more likely than those of normal weight to die from cancer or cardiovascular disease.

An Australian study found that people in their 70s who were overweight were less likely than those of normal weight to die during a 10-year time span. This could indicate that a little extra weight might fortify people against illness and injury as they age.

Doctors who study osteoporosis see some benefits to being 10 pounds overweight: Subcutaneous f** produces estrogen which can help increase bone mass. And it might strengthen a skeleton to carry a bit of extra weight, says Felicia Cosman, clinical director of National Osteoporosis Foundation and a professor of medicine at Columbia University. "Women should not worry if they are 10 to 15 pounds overweight.." Dr. Cosman says.
Health is one thing. But where this article is truly exciting is in its admission of the main point that the Judgment of Paris makes, and that the modern media denies: that extra fullness in the face makes a woman more beautiful, and preserves youth too:

A little extra f** may also act as a natural face-lift. Last year, the Archives of Dermatology published a study that said, as women grow older, those who are overweight appeared younger than those who were normal or underweight. That is because a little f** provides more structure for the skin which can combat the sagging that comes with age. Indeed, many of the newest cosmetic procedures aim to mimic the role of f** in the face, instead of simply filling in lines and wrinkles.

"We're adding volume," says Patricia Farris, a dermatologist in New Orleans. Dr. Farris says her sister who is seven years her senior and weighs more than she does is often mistaken as being her younger sister.
What a pity that so many Hollywood celebrities disfigure themselves with plastic surgery. All they would need to do to look younger and prettier is to gain 10 pounds. True goddesses know that their facial beauty (like the beauty of their figures) increases in direct proportion to their weight.

We've all seen cases of plus-size models who ruin their looks as they starve themselves, and likewise, those who become more beautiful as they become fuller-figured. It's a timeless truth, preserved in centuries of works of art, that more weight = more beauty.

My younger sister is 24 and I'm 30. She is very slender and I'm a size 18/20. People who don't know us are surprised when they discover that I'm the older sister.

Weight loss and tanning, two things pushed on women, both cause a woman to lose her youthful contours and skin tone. We're told to starve ourselves and bake our skin, and then sold skin creams and surgeries to repair the inevitable damage. It's another example of the unscrupulous getting rich by making us hate ourselves.

And those are not the only things. Here's a harrowing tale of a woman who tried to get plastic surgery on the cheap and ended up getting injected with (I kid you not) bathtub caulking:

Just think about it:

A potentially dangerous cosmetic practice has left some victims who had thought they would get fuller lips and shapelier bodies horribly and permanently deformed. In a metro Atlanta case, the procedure killed a woman.

A 29-year-old woman and her husband said they went to a Stone Mountain motel in May of 2009 where someone injected dimethyl silicone into her left buttock...

“One in a thousand people who get silicone injections die,” said Dr. Fripp-Vincent. “The other 999 out of a thousand end up with permanent deformities.”

In the Stone Mountain case, the autopsy report concluded the cause of death was “silicone emboli within pulmonary vasculature due to injection of dimethyl silicone into left buttock.” Put simply, the silicone got into her bloodstream, traveled to her lungs, stopped circulation and killed her.

...the silicone wraps around all the cells in the injection site and eventually hardens, so there is no way to get it out but to cut out the affected flesh. Often before hardening it oozes back out through ruptures in the skin. It causes gross deformities, Dr. Fripp-Vincent said.
It's horrifying and tragic. But the part that is truly appalling is the reason why the woman did this to herself in the first place:

The woman and her husband met someone at a Stone Mountain motel in May of 2009 where she received the injection for the purposes of giving her back her curvier rear end. She had recently lost a lot of weight and wanted her figure back.
So in other words, all of this happened - the woman lost her life - because she had starved herself. Inevitably, she lost her figure in the process. But instead of getting her curves back the natural way - by eating - she had someone inject her with a foreign, toxic substance that was sure to deform her, and did end up killing her.

It is mind-boggling and incomprehensible - this woman preferred to have a toxic plumbing material in her body than natural fullness.

How insane is our society when that is the preferable option to gaining curves than the way in which the body desires (i.e., indulging in food) - a way that is not only safe, but pleasurable?

How can women be brainwashed into first wanting to destroy their looks and figures by willingly emaciating themselves, then replacing their lost fullness with poisonous foreign matter? It sounds like a process of literal torture, like something from a mad doctor's laboratory. But women do this to themselves willingly. Utter madness.

We've all seen cases of plus-size models who ruin their looks as they starve themselves, and likewise, those who become more beautiful as they become fuller-figured. It's a timeless truth, preserved in centuries of works of art, that more weight = more beauty.
When one measures all of the pros of women becoming fuller figured versus the cons of being skinny or diminishing themselves, it's astonishing that the diet-starvation industry has any traction at all, and isn't laughed out of town for its sheer absurdity.

Consider the fact that goddesses who indulge themselves freely and eat whatever they want:

a) get to truly enjoy food, pleasurably and without guilt,
b) are healthier (e.g., with a lower incidence of osteoporosis, as the article states), and
c) look younger and more beautiful than their emaciated rivals.

Contrast this to the miserable quality of life suffered by those women who subject themselves to starvation-torture, who:

a) drag themselves around all day with a gnawing, empty feeling inside,
b) are more prone to a host of illnesses, and
c) look old and haggard, compared to their robust, well-fed rivals.

Gaining 10 pounds, 20 pounds, etc. is a win-win scenario for women. They get to enjoy the pleasure of eating freely, and they benefit from this satisfaction both in terms of health and looks.

Anyone coming to our world from another planet would consider it insane that <i>any</I> women are ever duped into denying themselves the delicious food that they crave, since such indulgence is beneficial to them in so many ways.

But the fact that diet-starvation has such a hold over women simply testifies to the grim brainwashing power of media imagery. Pictures of underweight girls, dressed in supposedly attractive clothing and photographed in creative ways, dupe the majority of women into rejecting the evidence of their own mirrors, of their own appetites, of their own bodies, and instead believing the media-fuelled lie that gauntness and emaciation are somehow attractive.

This is why, when it comes to combating the oppression of full-figured women, fashion is secondary to imagery. Campaigning for women to have "better" fashion choices is not nearly as important as campaigning for the creation of images that show genuinely full-figured models looking chic and gorgeous. Only aspirational images of plus-size beauty can shatter thin-supremacist media brainwashing and prompt full-figured women to recognize the attractiveness that they already possess. And this can only happen via the use of models who are truly and visibly full-figured.

A good first step would be for all plus-size models, every one, to "add 10 pounds for beauty," as this article encourages women to do. The models in question would all immediately become that much more attractive, more subversive, and more capable of showing the world the true shape of the perfect womanly body.
