I am not making light of the riots in Vancouver – they horrify me and I don’t understand how anyone can be driven to violence over a sport. That being said, I adore this picture of a blissful couple making … Continue reading Making Oot Mid-Riot
I tried to make a list of all the fictional movie and TV characters (male) that were attracted to plus size women, but I didn’t get very far. It isn’t a big list to begin with, and I cut out some contenders right away.
Fictional male main character/member of ensemble cast
Average guy that is sexually/romantically interested in plus size women
Must not be ashamed of their interest or hide it from friends
Must not be with a plus size female character just because they’re both outcasts that are stuck together for lack of other options
Not a requirement, but a curiosity – do they end up with a BBW (big, beautiful, woman)?
My thoughts on what it all might mean in a post to follow the fun part, which is the photo gallery o’ fictional men that like a woman with curves!
Puck – Glee
“You can’t choose love. Love chooses you. I mean, I could have any girl I wanted. But here I am in the middle of geometry or English or something and the only girl I’ve got my eye on is a whole lotta woman.” “Maybe it’s because she’s constantly insulting me like my mom. Maybe I just dig a chick with curves.”
Puck is one of my fave Glee characters, and his feelings for Lauren just make him all the more awesome. Puck seems somewhat surprised by his attraction to a chick with curves, but not averse to it. He pursues Lauren by honestly expressing his affection for her fat bottom, and that’s also a very real guy thing to do. I can totally see a guy intending to be sweet and romantic, but picking the complete worst song ever for a serenade. I find their whole relationship quite endearing. Puck also pursued plus size Mercedes in an earlier episode, but that was mainly in an (odd) effort to recapture his lost social status. Maybe she warmed him up to the prospect, or maybe Quinn’s pregnancy weight really turned him on. Regardless, I’m on board. Honorable mention goes to Trouty Mouth Sam, who appears to be dating Mercedes these days?
Does he end up with a BBW? So far, yes, for Puck and Sam. Two thumbs up!
Miles – Summer Catch
“Excuse me, I am tired of living a lie. I need it be known that I like a big girl. In fact, a large, zaftig, voluptuous, full-figured, big-boned, massive-assive honey, that is what gets me going. I like fat women and they like me…big girls need love too, baby!”
That was the description/episode title for the premier airing of Lifetime’s new show “Love Handles: Couples In Crisis”. That statement was also the only reason I bothered tuning in. Why would that attract me? Because, unfortunately, I’ve heard similar things before. So I gave this show a whirl, fully prepared to hate and despise the man who uttered that phrase. I do, by the way, loathe him quite a bit. He seems like a jackass who never considered that perhaps his lovely bride never planned on marrying a fat GUY. Apparently the fact that he gained 55-60 pounds compared to her 45 pound gain was not important. He also noted “If Meg gains more weight, the relationship is over.” So, you know, altogether he seems like a peach. I got the impression that he was using her weight as an excuse for not proposing, and was ultimately just sticking with her until a better (ie thinner) prospect came along. But he did propose in the end, so I had to revise my thoughts a bit. (I still think that relationship is doomed, but whatever). Continue reading ““I Never Planned On Marrying A Fat Girl””
Back in college, I was fortune enough to have some awesome roomies. Some completely psychotic roomies, too, but for now let’s focus on the positive. One of the two other girls in our triple – Kali – ended up becoming … Continue reading It’s Just More Icing

The years we spent together Side by side, but on our own Were the makings of forever But we both felt all alone Those fireworks that peaked In kaleidoscope explosions Were witnessed cheek to cheek But in silence, lacked emotion … Continue reading Side By Side, But On Our Own
The world has always expected the adult in me to show
I spoke in solemn sentences, and wished to finally grow
My soul quite quickly sank to the depths of middle age
It all felt so frightening from within my youthful cage
When I was just an infant, I seldom whined or cried
My toddler years were tempered
My childhood pushed aside Continue reading “The Adult In Me”
