You are totally missing the CONTEXT of the debate (which is rapidly becoming an argument).
Are you really surprised? You've just insulted every single overweight female in the world.

Well I was about to add, that a lot of my tops come above my belly button, and I'm quite lucky that I have a rather flat stomach compared to a lot of people. However these tops that rise above my stomach are my size....12/14 or whatever... I'm not overly tall only 5 foot 6 to be precise so If I am showing tummy off obviouly if other people are showing it off and it's a bit what you would say "flabby" shouldn't we blame it on the people that make clothes, not the ones who buy them

I have made valid points, the only reasonable argument to contest what I am saying is that people should be able to wear what they want which is fine by me.

Just to reiterate the main post I was asking why people who are clearly "fat" decide to flaunt what they have got as if they think it is something to shout about.
maybe they're proud to be wahtever weight they are.

Didn't mean it in that context... meant the people that go out of their way to be a size six, I used to be a size 6 and weighed five stone up until I was 15 then puberty kicked in.

this has nothing to really do with this thread, but do you find your size varies in whatever shop you go in, i'm a six in river island and gap, whereas i'm an eight in new look and several other shops!!! Which is why shopping is hard work, especially when you're 5'3 as well

i don't get a kick out of being skinny, i hate it - why - because i don't like the petite look. But i guess everyone should be proud of whatever size they are and wear whatever they want to wear...it's about you not what other people think

um, no because it overweight is subjective and it varies within the individual's eyes. He was not complaining about overweight, he was coplaining about people flautnign something they dont have (ie a nice, healthy body).

Is this not a reflection of the society that we live in?

A TV presenter makes some valid albeit slightly controversial statements about Arab states and gets hauled off air and forced to resign. The fact that the same article was printed first time round during the second Iraq war and no one minded it then seems to have gone completly amiss.

Ann Robinson makes some off the cuff remark about the Welsh and is hauled in for questioning by the Police on allegations of racism.

Teachers can no longer refer to a blackboard as a blackboard because it may offend people who are er...black.

And now we cant talk about fat people for risk of offending someone.

But hey - its ok to go on bashing America and Israel isn't it?

Because we are right, they need to be bashed. And since they are wrong, they can't defend themselves.

Not to mention it being illegal to advertise bacon sandwiches in a highly ethnically populated area, to say that the top ten richest people there is underepresentation for the ethnic minorities because there are 3 there, that's 30% when the country's actual total is 8%.
To be boxed in the label of white when there are pakistani, Bengal, Indian, Afro-Carribean boxes...hello does it matter I'm English..

sorry i'm ranting

Conclusion -

Too many girls go out trying to "flaunt it" when they simply have not "got it". Instead they end up flaunting flab.

Whether they "have it" or not is simply a matter of opinion
