“My Big Fat Fetish” Documentary
Why am I finding this documentary on men who have a fat fetish and the fat women they love so comforting today?
This fetish — not my thing.
And, I get how this could be really dangerously unhealthy.
But . . .
Who among us, no matter our genders, ethnic heritages, body types or whatever else, have never seen the narrow standards of what seems to be considered attractive in this culture and felt far from the mark?
I cannot help but find this subculture strangely reassuring.
A BBW (Big Beautiful Woman) says in the documentary says, “Everything around you is telling you that you cannot be happy this way,” and goes on to describe her joy in discovering an online world of websites with pictures of women much larger than the conventional beauty standard and men who admire them for those additional pounds.
Does anyone know if there are women who like men who would be considered “overweight,” and what websites and whatever else exists for them?
Or, of any other outside-the-mainstream fetishes or things people are attracted to?
my co-worker Nick Bilton explains why the tech scene makes SF suck, I completely agree – it is the most vibeless city in the country because of it:
As people debate if San Francisco is the new New York, it seems that San Francisco is just repeating a cycle that’s been going for a very long time.

My thoughts and prayers are with Harlem.
This is horrible news. On March 12, two residential buildings collapsed in New York City, causing at least two deaths and several serious injuries. The cause for the incident is yet to be determined, though residents reported smelling gas before an explosion leveled the buildings.
Tragedy struck the East Harlem neighborhood of New York City on the morning of March 12, as two buildings collapsed in flames with dozens of residents still inside. Two women have already been confirmed dead and dozens are injured or missing, as firefighters continue to battle the blaze.

A great post about meditation from “Stuff My Brain Thinks.”
Stuff My Brain Thinks
Starting today I have decided to get a little more serious about meditating. I have noticed lately that I have been rushing through my sessions and I stopped using soft music as well. Somewhere along the way I was told that I didn’t need the music to meditate so I took it out. It’s been several months since doing that and I have noticed that things are just not the same.
Since this month is Self-Awareness month I am getting back to the basics of me. I am re-evaluating all aspects of my life. Primarily my thoughts and attitudes. For several months last year my stream of thoughts were positive and uplifting, however lately I have noticed they have taken on a dull, negative tone. I guess it is real easy to slip out of higher consciousness and back into our old subconscious view of the world. After spending…

Allow me to begin this rather uncomfortable little address by stating that, as a woman with an egregiously thick head of hair, I will never know your struggle. I can only approximate, and relate it to my own physical insecurities in an attempt at some empathy. That being said, I have absolutely nothing against a good baldy. I have dated men of both the delicately-receding and full-on-cueball orders in my day, and our love was in no way hindered by their lack of follicles. In fact, there was always a certain joy in running my hands on that strangely baby-esque skin that crowned the top of their head. When we love someone, we find a million little pleasures in their physical being, and a shaved head can by all means be one of them.
So I suppose my most fundamental question would then be, why fight it? As…
