    Firstly, this is how its going to be for a very, very long time from now. A couple of centuries at the minimum. I'm sorry but the plain and simple reason is due to thousands of years of human evolution and built in characteristics that enabled our survival as a species. mankind has been around for some 100,000 years so were not gonna see much by the end of 2016 :bunny::bunny:

    I don't understand the OP at all.

    However, with regards to the title. Being fat used to be desirable because it was difficult and indicated wealth since only the rich could afford to eat enough to be fat. Similarly, being pale was desirable for the same reasons.

    However, it is now easier to be fat than it is to be thin. Being thin became more attractive around the early 20th century (if I'm not mistaken) because food became more available and exercise is indicative of free time.

    That's a theory I've heard. Idk how true it is but I can see the logic in it. However, not everyone likes super skinny girls. Myself I'm a fan of curves over bones.
