I'm going to go read the site policy if I can find it. In the meantime, bring it on. I'm a feminist; I appreciate women and don't find them to be less than equal, except in areas of obvious inequality like bits, or that their strength or athletic performance will be, on average, a bit less than men's. Not my doing, not my problem, not a concern.
Almost all women look truly fine if they are reasonably lean, but I don't like 'em fashion model stick-thin either. Almost without exception, fit/lean + muscled up a bit (naturally, no 'roids or crazy crap) = hotness.

Marilyn has a nice hourglass figure, whether she was a size 12 or 16 she still had a 23-24" waist which is what I think most people overlook. When you compare her to today's models, they have about the same waist but today's models have lost the hourglass figure because they are showing off the clothes and not the figure. Marilyn was suppose to be "the girl next door" type, not a supermodel. If you do a search for fashion models of the 1960's I think you will find that most of them were thin French girls that are about the same as what they use today...

Being a woman myself, I have no preference. My husband wants a girl with a little meat on her bones. My brother in law likes the stick thin, you can see every rib girls. My brother likes anything with boobs, regardless of size.
Think about this: If Marilyn Monroe were an actress in todays Hollywood, SHE WOULD BE CONSIDERED FAT. Marilyn Monroe was the epitome of sex appeal and the beautiful woman. Every man wanted her, and every woman wanted to BE her.

Well I'd take Coco Austin over Paris Hilton if that tells you anything.

By today's standards, Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, and Mamie Van Doren would be thick. So put me in the thick category. :-) Actually, I put as much stock in what's upstairs (but that doesn't make me NOT shallow, really)
maybe what the word everyone is looking for is: Normal, not fat, not skinny, but normal weight. I think it all depends on your body frame and height as to what that normal weight would be. As for me, I have wide hips, and it's very noticeable when I gain weight. For me, it's a fine line between fat and normal. When I gain 10 pounds, it's, oh Amy you're too fat honey, and when I lose 10 pounds, it's, oh Amy you look so good. I think it has to do with my wide hips for some reason I cannot explain. But just losing or gaining 10 pounds in my opinion shouldn't make that much difference. Sorry I'm getting too selfish talking about my own weight. I so sorry.

I like curvy with a bit of meat on their bones. Not sure if "thick" is the right word here. Fit is a close second and fat is out probably because I'm shallow.

I have always liked girls who take care of their bodies, it gives a little insight to their values and such. We all have different ideas of what slim or thick is, I have a buddy that likes what I consider to be thick girls and he thinks the girls I like are anorexic...lol
Im just curious about real figures... as in, numbers...
Though we are men conscious about our weight, here on a weight-loss website, but you prefer your women to be slimmer or on the thicker side? When women you know are on the diet craze, as so many are nowadays, when do you think the line should be drawn? In my experience, women think they need to lose weight WAY sooner than the guys around them think they do.
