real women have curves by Bob-Rz real women have curves by Bob-Rz
yes, i made an insensitive fat joke.

but more than that, it's a jab at hypocrisy.

it's mocking people who hide behind worn out slogans rather than just be honest about themselves.

i don't care who or what you are, just don't pretend to be something that you're not.



still offended? good. not all comedy is as safe and polite as Family Circus.

Very well said. That's why its sometimes even more important to read the artist's comment down below that the actual piece.

I dont mind girls having a little meat on their bones, ya know. But usually having a bowl full of jelly in the wrong place isn't very attractive.

I myself am a curvy girl, you know with the 'hourglass shape' and stuff, so when a woman who is that size says I'm curvy, damn it makes me feel horrible suddenly. XD I have nothing against the uh, 'round is a shape' thing but I don't think it's something to flaunt and you're certainly not curvy in the way it's meant. Now, I've seen some hefty women who I can honestly call curvy because they look good! You know, the plus size women like Queen Latifa and stuff? They're HAWT and I envy them sometimes. XD But when your a jiggly blob of gelatin... Yeeeaaaah, that's not plus sizes, that's Mondo Sizes and the 'curves' went to singular.

I agree but don't agree, it that makes sense. I don't necessarily think people should focus so much on how it's said but what the message is. The message is that a woman should be able to go without endless criticism about how she's shaped. If it doesn't bother her, it shouldn't bother you.

If she wants to call herself curvy, let her. You don't have to agree, but you also don't have to split hairs about phrasing and terminology.

ye gads.. reading some of the "offended" comments on this cartoon is truly cringe-inducing, and reminiscent of youtube comment-wars.

*smiles* but yes, there i was real women just have to have two X chromosomes...

The sheer amount of commentry you got clearly shows this was a cartoon worth drawing. *thumbs up*

Awesome picture. Women like that are annoying. They're just like that because they can't be hot.

Women who wear short shirts with "hottie" on it usually aren't real women, regardless of their size.

I agree with this 100%. I hate it when people are proud of being overweight. It's not something you should be happy with or you should ever accept about yourself. Being overweight is unhealthy and is just a slow form of suicide.

So you hate people who are proud of being overweight, and its somthing THEY shouldnt be proud of. For having reason in your name, this has none at all. If they want to be fat-bastards, let them be fat bastards. It dosent affect you what-so-ever if theyre fat. Being overweight is unhealthy. Thanks Lt.General.Obvious, without this post, i would of never of found out being fat isent the best thing ever.

I never said I hate the person. Not at all. Anyways, isn't it my own business how I view people who are overweight and proud of it?

And yes, it DOES effect me when my father is overweight. It really does. It effects his job, or his lack-there-of because no one will hire him anymore. Because he can barely walk arcoss the room without getting winded.

It does effect others through the worry people have for them, for the hospital bills and the constant risk of a stroke or heart failure.

I didn't post that comment to inform people. Like you just did with your own comment, it was to state my opinion, which is what comments are for in the first place. I don't believe there is a need for an argument here, honestly.

It's not being fat that bothers me, it's fat people who hate skinny people for being thin. It's just self concious bullying.

Nothing wrong with being fat. But you need to accept that you are not the mainstream beauty (there's nothing wrong with that, but it's the truth) and that skinny people aren't oppressing you. After all, it just creates a counter anti-fat culture which is counter productive to any true body acceptance.

Curvy does not = fat to me...

I always thought curvy meant that lovely hourglass shape women tend to have.

So curvy now means jelly-rolls and layers upon layers of fat threatening to burst out of your shirt?

Wow how times have changed I guess...

It's a good jab at the weight fetishes community- I have never had any real problem with what they like, but as a collective they have massive levels of hypocrisy towards each other and their own desires. It's sad, really.

I don't want to be the jerk, but I don't think ANYONE likes people who try to pretend they are what they're not.

So all this comic is is just re-enforcing stereotypes, because fuck you she's a hottie to someone even if it isn't you.

Fat hate is so prevalent it's the norm, so I don't see how this comic is a necessary comment.

It's a good reinforcement if you ask me, there's a mass problem with obesity all over the US, if not much of the world. It comes from instant self-gratification and the like, and having no self control.

Also, there's no need to say "fuck you". That's childish and you ARE being a jerk.

Grow up. It's funny to those who know how to take a joke.

I'm a big girl myself and has had people say I have curves. I just tell 'em "Yea, the curves of a beach ball." if they keep telling me otherwise I just ask them if they have a fat fetish or if they just feel pity towards me and are trying to compliment me for my own amusement.

It's an old and overused line by big people, they need to get over it and come up with something new or shut up.

Beauty is a matter of opinion.
I'm a chubby girl and had difficulties accepting my body all throughout high school. After I graduated, I realized that part of a womens beauty is the fact that we are all different. From super skinny to fat, there are both girls who are beautiful and ugly. So just because someone is fat and thinks they're are attractive doesn't mean that they aren't being honest about themselves. And just because a women is skinny doesn't mean she isn't "a real woman." Like I said, beauty is a matter of opinion, and there is loveliness in all shapes and sizes. :nod:
I did add this to my favorites because I thought it was well drawn out and made some good points, however, I did wan't to get my opinion out there too. :)

I don't think that's the case. I think he's criticizing the idea that overweight women can say that they're the 'mainstream beauty' or 'a real woman with curves' when that is not true. Most people don't find weight attractive. I personally love drawing larger women because they have very soft lines, but I understand that by most society's standards big women are not attractive. The issue is not 'fat women are ugly and they should stop that'. The issue is 'fat women should accept that it doesn't matter if the majority find them unattractive. That it's okay to be fat and they don't need to make fun of skinny women to validate their sense of worth'.

i love this because i'm so tired of hearing "real women have curves" when the women who say that are overweight. there's a difference between having meat on your bones and being fat. if you're fat, just admit it. some people are skinny, some people are fat, some people are in between. big deal. but an unwillingness or difficulty losing weight doesn't mean you can just brand your weight as "ideal."

it's like models can only be super skinny or super fat ("real women") and nobody in between exists. real women are all shapes and sizes. you can be 103 lbs and still have curves.

It also has occured to me that people tend to hide behind that solgan to justify a weight problem. I was thinking about it the other day. So I really like this, its caught a real truth.
