As to why it is that 80% of the time you read one of those “Americans are all so FAT!” articles that the only gender whose FATNESS is measured from one decade to the next is… women? You can’t tell me that it’s about “AMERICANS” who are getting fatter and nobody did any comparisons on male weight (I have fat rants in droves, but this particularly sexist thing about all the fat talk drives me even battier than all the gross assumptions about fat people).
But then, men are SUPPOSED to be bigger. The truly grotesque are the women, who are all supposed to be taking up less space. And it’s the women who should feel really bad about it, because they’ll pay more money to get rid of it, and fail. Because women gain weight even more easily than their male American counterparts.
Holier than thou.
