Why are young white women in America so unmotivated to be thin and fit?
After traveling to regions of the world that have mostly thin women, young white women in America and other Anglo countries do a poor job in being feminine. They are the most guilty of it. Instead they try to be one of the guys by eating the grossest foods, and shouting so loud during sports games. Girls in Russia ,Brazil, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine, and the Balkans notice all are female model producing nations for a reason. They maintain feminity even when they are smoking. Why can't American girls do that ? Flab is not sexy.

It's sad that you think "femininity" is defined by how much space a woman doesn't take up.

I think it's horrible. I don't like to see it, but we are really going down hill. We don't look after ourselves even a fraction as much as ethnic girls do.

NEWSFLASH: Fat people are everywhere. American women don't care if they fit your standards on what "sexy" is. Thin doesn't mean feminine, having a little extra fat makes you feminine actually as it's natural for all women to have some fat. Bones is not sexy.

Those are all countries that suffered from hunger,due to their warring. Smoking has nothing to do with femininity. That's just silly. BTW, those same women age prematurely, and gain lots of weight, which obviously is not only genetic, but cultural. So do you think you found your master race?

I don't think this has anything to do with race. Weight issues can be found in every gender & every race or ethnic group, so i have no idea why you are focusing on white women here.

We have alot of food available to us, maybe that's why there is flab. But also, take into account because of that, we have resources for income to have access to food. I don't like flab but then again, I don't like a stick with no Feminine curves.

For the same reason that men like you are unsophisticated and have no interest in being successful or educated. Men like you just want to complain about the very group - white women - that reject your every approach. So I say, go to third world countries where the gals are eating lead-based paint off the walls and... More
