Default Lesbian and bisexual women more at risk for obesity, study finds

Well no ****.

Anyone who has ever been to a lesbian bar or wymyn's softball game knows that most of them ain't built like Ellen and Portia.

Which is no big (lol) deal. Women who don't care what gay men think they ought to look like in a dress are well liable to carry a few extra pounds.

But the point is that stereotypes are built on grains of truth, and this scientific study proves that.

Wait, I'm confused. Are we supposed to celebrate their success at gaining body mass? Or just that they have openly admitted to being lesbians? Or maybe we should celebrate their lesbian-ness while body shaming their overweightedness? No, that doesn't sound right.

I think I'll just go back to not giving a **** who is fat and who is gay. I know it's not popular, but it has worked for me so far.

I have to concur that a good portion of them are not health nuts, and they don't care about their physical appearance as much as hetero women do. However, I personally have a lesbian/bisexual friend for over 20 years who you would never think could be that, and honestly, that goes for her partner as well. She's a park ranger at 5'7" 145lbs. and definitely keeps up on her exercise/diet regime. Whatever she chooses to do with her life is her choice, I'm able to carry on a conversation with her and her partner cordially because they don't throw their sexuality in my face and don't make a federal production about so called unfairness and oppression. If the rest of them want to look like a bunch of slobs and not have any self-respect enough to know that stuffing their faces is going to have negative results, I couldn't give a ****.....Those are the types that are hostile, in your face, and want special treatment for poor decision making. That falls on deaf ears.

Are lesbian women more likely to be obese, or are obese women more likely to be lesbians?

Some are lesbian because they are obese.

This is going to sound funny, but some of the most fun people to go on a group motorcycle ride with that I've ever experienced, were butch lesbians, and I'm talkin' sideburns, tobaccer chewin, arm 'rasslin', steel toed, lumberjackin', ***** strappin', ***** hatin' bull dykes. Laugh RIOT. I have never, in my life, had more fun getting pulled over by the cops and just standing back and watching... poor THP trooper had no ******' clue what he was in for when he stopped us, and about 30 seconds in the look of pure terror that slowly dawned on his face was PUH-RICE-LESS.

I don't drink and still I bought the dobbies a round of beers at Hooters that evening for the entertainment value of that 30 minutes.

Oh thanks, I was actually wondering about that because I went to the store the other day and didn't lay eyes on a single female that weighed less than about 300 pounds. It kind of freaked me out since being around people larger than myself isn't something I'm used to and people who are 2 feet shorter than me aren't normally a problem in that regard.
