I didn't say you hate women, but this post and many of the comments on it reek of misogyny.
Insinuating that I am misogynistic accuses me of hatred of women.
First the label that put the fit girl as "normal", to suggest everything else is abnormal (you didn't make it but you did re-post it)
No, the label of normal is that of average. There are no two women who are exactly alike (even twins have differences) and the categories just show all the different types of bodies females either have or have acquired through habit.
You're essentially asking people to judge what is nicest
No the post was made so that some may see what goal they may want to achieve based on the current body they have now. Unfortunately I'm not a computer whiz (as you can tell that I can't even resize a photo right) and would have deleted the "obese and fat" pics if I knew how.
And as someone who is clearly well educated in fitness and who has made plenty good posts before, you know as well as I do that women can't "Aim" to be curvy or straight up and down.
Of course I know that. But an overweight person who knows what type of body they have can aspire to achieve the look that's portrayed in the photos that fits their type accordingly. Nothing wrong to seeing an "after" possibility of what they make look like.
You also have enough experience to know that threads like this descend into body fascism, insults (real women have curves, "normal" looks like a boy etc) and general all round unpleasantness.
Insults are thrown by those who want to throw them. Generally people here on the forum are quite civil so I think you may be blowing this out of proportion.
So, I think it was a stupid and misogynistic thing to post, even if it's meant to be some kind of joke.
It's wasn't a joke. There are actually people here (with or without the photos) trying to achieve a body goal. Some want muscularity. Some want the athletic look. Some want the "toned" look.
You take offense to the thread. I get it. But no need to label me as a misogynist when it's you point of view and not true.
