The Exclusion Of Our labels
People like to put things in compartments. By adding categories or descriptions to people they put them in nice little boxes. Like BBW. Big beautiful women. Why aren’t they just women? Why does their size have to be pointed out? Why is being Full-figured or Rubenesque such a statement. It is true that using words like voluptuous and zaftig brings images of women that sensual. These women are not stick thin their bodies are very womanly with large breasts and wide hips. Women like evoke this imagery are sought after by men of every culture.
Men seeking sex actively compete for woman that have large breasts and wide hips. They are the full figures of pinup girls and burlesque dancers. The way they walk and move speaks volumes about their sex. But some women don’t understand that a man will go out of his way to perform a BBW search and they downgrade who and what they are by using terms like queen-sized, plus sized, or even fat.
