i frequent “askmen” sometimes when i’m bored at work. all the men on the messageboards are 100% perfect and deserve nothing less than a women who is 5’7″+ and weighs 105. not an ounce of fat on her either. well, they complain about women who shouldn’t be wearing belly-baring shirts, cuz of their fat rolls. well, i had never seen someone who shouldn’t be wearing a belly-baring shirt, or someone who couldn’t pull it off half decently (and all these women i have seen were probably 25 years old or less).
until friday night. i don’t know if i’m sheltered or what, but i finally saw a woman who should definitely NOT have been wearing what she was wearing. melissa (who visted me last weekend!) and i walked into TGIFridays and a woman walked out who was wearing shorts that were too small for her and a shirt that was definitely too small for her, as her gut was hanging out. we’re talking, this woman’s shirt ended about an inch below her boobs, and there was no way it was meant to cover up everything. #1 – this woman was probably 45+ and had no business wearing clothes like that. #2 – this woman was probably 190 lbs.+ and stood at about 5’5″. #3 – she unabashedly wore the clothes like people wanted to see her gut hanging out!
ugh! what possesses people to do this? 1. dress your age. 2. wear clothes that fit. this, in my opinion, is the main reason askmen men think anyone weighing more than 105 is fat. if you weigh 105 and wear a size too small, you have no fat and you’re fine, but if you wear a size too small and you’re 140, your extra fat will hang over the edge of your pants. especially if they’re ultra low-rise pants like they have to be today. wear pants that fit and a belt (which i forget quite often, the cause of the unattainable pants that fit for me), and your belly fat will be kept in check. 3. if you have a gut, cover it up! no one wants to see that. especially 45-year-old, 3-kids-later, i-live-in-the-sticks gut. except maybe her hubby, cletus.
yes, i’m talking about you, britney.
