I'll bet you guys that this study was done by fat birds.

It seems like for ever people who are self concious about thier appearance do all they can to discredit the ones who arent.
Its nerds vs jocks only in a diffirent setting.

If a girl starves herself to be thin then shes probabaly not that smart and I dont need a research team to figure that out, where as if a girl looks after herself eats healthy does regular exercise and keeps her mind active then she can stand against anyone and be just as successful
Its the same with guys If all they care about is what their 6 pack looks like and are obsessed with drinking and football then they too arent gonna be that bright.
but this doesnt come down to body type this comes down to the media and what were conditioned to think is attractive, basically dumb people will do what they can to be what they think theyre supposed to be. Trust me theres plenty of stupid fat people as well, take jade goody for example are you telling e that tubby bitch was a brainiac, yeah right.

Nah, that was the 80's.

A good proportion of blokes are walking tubs 'o lard too these days, young and older.

I don't think it is natural to be a size 16+ unless you just had kids.


If you look at women depicted in art throughout history, they weren't all the skinny little twigs that society tells us we're supposed to look like. They had curves and I can't recall any offhand that had perfectly flat stomachs. Society believing women should all be smaller than a size 6 is a relatively recent development.

There is an obesity problem in the US with both men and women. Its making people very sick at a young age. If you have a smart child - you need to be healthy enough to be around. With studies such as this it just gives one an excuse to eat more. Eat healthy as possible, limit your snacks and hopefully find a medium.

I agree, there certainly is a weight problem in the US today.

The study does make the distinction between the healthy fat in the bottom and thighs and the unhealthy fat one keeps around the middle.

If I were to take a conspiracy angle on this, I would look at it another way. Population control.

There is a biological reason why most men are attracted to women with the more 'hourglass'/fuller figure. The wider hips indicate they will be more likely to be able to give birth successfully, and the bigger boobs indicate they will be able to provide milk.

So encouraging women to be ultra-skinny may make it more difficult for them to successfully birth and raise a child.

Also very underweight women often have other problems like not menstruating, not being able to get pregnant at all, and others.

So if TPTB are pushing this, causing less births could be a part of it.

I don't think that just looking at dress size, like "size 12" is all that useful really. There can be quite a variation between women of the same dress size. I've seen some size 12's who look quite overweight, but many more that look fine.

Good point; being too skinny can have just as many adverse health effects as being too fat.

TPTB keep us pointed away from the happy medium by keeping the wafer thin look as our ideal and at the same time work on the other end of the spectrum with highly fattening, addictive foods loaded with dangerous high fructose corn syrup to push the other half over the edge into obesity.

The happy medium is almost unknown in this day and age, probably by design...

Size has little to do with sexiness and definitely less to do with healthy parenting or scientific studies such as this. But...I definitively agree that any woman who is pregnant or nursing should make sure to get enough healthy omega-3 fatty acids in their diet.

here is what david , nigel, and derek think. oh and they are still needing drummers


The bigger the cushion
The sweeter the pushin'
That's what I said

The looser the waistband
The deeper the quicksand
Or so I have read

My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I like to sink her with my pink torpedo

Big bottom
Big bottom
Talk about bum cakes
My girl's got 'em
Big bottom, drive me out of my mind
How can I leave this behind?

I saw her on Monday
'Twas my lucky bun day
You know what I mean

I love her each weekday
Each velvety cheekday
You know what I mean

My love gun's loaded and she's in my sights
Big game is waiting there inside her tights

Big bottom
Big bottom
Talk about mudflaps
My gal's got 'em
Big bottom, drive me out of my mind
How can I leave this behind?

My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I like to sink her with my pink torpedo

Big bottom
Big bottom
Talk about bum cakes
My girl's got 'em
Big bottom, drive me out of my mind
How can I leave this behind?

THIS IS SPINAL TAP

Well male eating disorders are up more than they've ever been, including the 80's. Ever seen male walkway models nowadays? Probably smaller than the women. Males are being affected the same way women are by the media.

The MSM has promoted this ridiculous image of what everybody is supposed to look like and how much we are ideally supposed to weigh, it affects both men and women.

When I was in the Army, the weight standards were set so low that anybody who did even a little bit of working out would show up as being overweight. We had to take a body mass index test in order to prove that we weren't too fat to serve.

I even saw some bone-thin shinny guys have to submit to this indignity. The supposed healthy weight standards for most categories are set way too low. It seems they want to classify everyone as overweight in order to get them under medical care and pump more money into the medical/pharmaceutical industries pocketbooks.

I think you've put a little too much thought into this one buddy.

... I know, I know, its kind of an ironic thing to say on ATS.


How can this theory be plausible, ... when the american population is only getting FATTER !!

They dont need to purposefully try to make the public any stupider, .... they already fill that quota as it is.

It is also possible that the pretty skinny girls never 'had' to study hard or really learn because being pretty was enough to get them by.

The dateless girls hit the books & libraries.

I don't know about this theory but i find it sad that women are being told to slim down so much. I've known women with the body of children, i mean seriously most guys don't find that attractive and yet the magazines convince them we do. Look at the most popular sex symbols and you find hourglass figures pretty common, or they at least have curves of some form.

I often wonder if the fashion magazines are run by women who are uttely bitter that they are so skinny and so they want other women to share their pain.



Edit to add that a friend of mine used to be horribly depressed and completely disatisfied with her body, she wasn't overweight or anything. Anyway she stopped reading the fashion magazines and within a couple of months her depression disappeared.

Just saying

Well as a "skinny little nerd" I'm a little offended. At 5'4" I normally weigh between 104-110lbs. And my Man Loves Skinny Little me! He having been married previously to a crazy dumb bigger woman (that's what he'd tell you!). My daughter is 3 yrs old and her teacher and anybody else that meets her can hardly believe how smart she is! We eat healthy and stay active. All my life I have been treated like I was anorexic by people that didn't know me. Then when they saw me eat it confused them, I just have High metabolism!
I'm about to have my second child in a couple of days, doctor says I have had a perfect pregnancy, gained perfect weight and everything. Yet because I was small to begin with, it amazes people that I'm so small with just a round belly to show that I'm pregnant. I'll let you all know how smart my little boy turns out! I'm just saying that, although the tests claim that a little junk in the trunk means women are smarter, that there are exceptions. What also matters is healthy eating and healthy environment to keep the brain healthy too. Oh and I'm pretty sure breast feeding helps too, as both I and my daughter were breast fed for the first 9 months of life. Give all women a chance! You won't know how smart they are until you get to know them as a person!!!

There's nothing that says intelligence better than 300 plus pounds of ready to burst spandex on a gearbox smoking walmart cart.

I want just 1/2 the money that's wasted on studies like this to be reallocated to actually doing some good some where.

I don't know about being smarter, but they are definitely healthier. In fact (IMO), this whole country is screwed up with it's food health. We have access to fruit, nuts, meats, etc. but scramble to grab the conglomeration of chemicals that they call "snacks" and "sweets". Sure...I love something fast, simple and sweet at times, but we Americans have made this one of the elements of the food pyramid. Simply put...if we would eat what "nature gave us", we would all be better off. We are "children" of this planet and have so much in common with it, and nature, that it only makes sense that we should be eating what the environment provides rather than what scientists and marketers make and advertise to our ever-widening asses.

And the quick fix of vitamins are no replacement. Sure, you get the added vitamins, but you don't get the "full feeling" nor do you get the "chewing-effect" (eg. the act of chewing makes you feel fuller, leads to better dental health, etc., etc.) and the other nutrients such foods provide. So...you may get the unnatural vitamin version, but you don't get most of the benefit of eating healthy.

Dumb example, but I sometimes joke with people about dieting, saying "You can eat anything you want and not gain an ounce. Just grow and harvest the food yourself. If you want to eat 20lbs of meat...hunt it, kill it, and "harvest" it with your bare hands. By the time you get to consuming the meat, you will have already burnt off the calories, exercised your muscles and be ready for, and need, the vitamins and protein you are about to consume." Also, you gain the self-respect and the gratification of having accomplished this task entirely by yourself.

I think I have finally convinced myself that being closer to a "living off the land" lifestyle is really the way to go...for everything. But I guess that next step of actually doing it, may take some time to get going.

I love skinny women, I love shapely women, I love short women and I love tall women. I love white women, I love dark skinned women... They are all OK by me! Why would anyone wish to pit one against the other as somehow being more valid. I think people need to stop objectifying and just accept all the many shapes and colours they come in. They are all beautiful.

William D. Lasseka seems a bit obsessed with other peoples bodies.
Here is another study by the same guy that comes to the conclusion that men with muscles get hungry more often and have a worse immune system.

So he has a problem with with slim girls and muscle men, sounds like Mr Lasseka may have had some bullying problems in school to me

You have my vote! My wife is a fat bottom girl, and she is a lot smarter than I am, and I would not trade her ample behind for any skinny chick. Some are so thin they look sick. There are a lot of these skinny, small breasted women who live around where I call home, and it makes me appreciative of what I have. I think a lot of the locals are jealous of her ample breasts too, they certainly stare at her enough. Love the Freddy Mercury song too.
