Big Love by Josh Max in Salon
I've been searching searching searching the blogosphere with a fine-toothed comb, trying to find some response to this article. I need someone to tell me what to think. Preferably a fat woman.
Honestly though, I'm almost 100% in favor of people discussing their against-the-norm attractions, but there were bits of prose (I began to happily, gently lose myself in her spheres, her bountiful soft flesh, her tiny lips and enormous hips) that make me wonder what this is really doing. For example: why does the article begin and end with some guy making anti-fat comments? I think I mostly liked the piece, but feel this sense of self-doubt about my reaction. Anyone care to weigh in?
Edited to add: I just so happened to use "weigh in". Accidentally. I am really sorry. Ugh.
Edited again to add: zuzu took care of it.
