Let there be cake

Weight, size, girth, fat, chunker, lard.

In 2011, we are obsessed with size, “size 12 or bust” fit in to this or the world will end. Now don’t get me wrong, it is important to be healthy, but this has nothing to do with size. Healthy leads to different sizes for different people, as it should. Weight will fluctuate as will the size of a persons waist. That’s why the BMI index has an arc and as long as you are there or there abouts, your doctor will stay off your case.

Apparently these rules and human variations are not allowed to apply to women. To be attractive and confident, a lady has to be more lean than the Queens finest steak. To go from size 14 to size 16 is a failure, turns a stunner into a back end of a bus, just by going up by two meaningless numbers.

To go off on a tangent, what is it with the numbers? UK sizes, 8, 10, 12, 14 etc. These are just numbers. The US system even starts at zero, which apparently is something that is good to be. In the UK system there are no odd numbers no size 13 for you missus even if it does fit your gluteus Maximus like a glove. Guys sizes, for shirts and trousers are actual measurements, meaning that we don’t have the issue of being size 12 in M&S, size 10 in H&M. A 16.5″ shirt is the same everywhere. Ok we do have the small medium and large system, but that is for t-shirts, or underpants which either fit or not!

Are the women’s outfitters that concerned about the woman’s self esteem that they made up this system. Was it made up to ensure that men can’t buy their girlfriends clothes with confidence? Surely a measurement system would ensure comfort.

Tangent over, there are far more important things than dress sizes, you can be as skinny as a rake but if you are a bitch no-one will like you. Dress size can and will change, up and down like some hormonal stock market. Enjoy life, for it is short. Ladies none of you are supposed to look like stick insects, from a blokes standpoint the vast majority of us like something to grab onto. Those that don’t either haven’t reached puberty yet or secretly want to do the do with Chris rather than Christine.

Thats another thing, slight tangent (again) some people blame the “weight issue” with women on men. This is crap, pure crap. The headlines at the top of this post are a sample taken from womens magazines. Other women being bitchy about other women, blokes magazines and webpages love women. If a certain celebrity has put on some pounds it is not covered in a single mans magazine. In fact the curves and wobbles are celebrated.

So, let there be cake.
