Is liking fat people a fetish? "liking slimmer girls is a preference,liking big girls is a fetish." As a chubby girl i felt offended.

  • Technically speaking anything can be a fetish

    Fetish: a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body ect.

    By this definition pretty much any sexual preference that one feels strongly towards can be a fetish. Just because you are offended doesn't mean you're right. Also why would you be upset about someone having a fetish for you? That just seems irrational.

  • It is really offensive

    When i saw this i was really genuinely hurt. Like is this why it's so hard to find a boyfriend? Do guys find my weight revolting? I'm not like seriously huge but I'm big enough to be considconsidered fat. It is just so insane and frustrating. I'm young and i shouldn't have to feel in order for me to be liked i need a guy with low standards or a freaky fetish

  • Cultural Norms and Preference is not a fetish

    In the past, (Renaissance) "chubby" was the beauty ideal. Furthermore, as a man, I find skinny women very unattractive. My preference is for "thicker" and "chubbier" women. That is not a fetish any more than preferring one type of painting to another is. Furthermore, calling such a preference a "fetish" has the connotation of "unnatural" or that being attracted to "big girls" is not normal and that the man must have twisted motivations for doing so. I have always been naturally attracted to "big girls" and am proud to say so. In my opinion, a "skinny" or "petite" girl obsession is something far less healthy.

The unfortunate (for you) truth is that males generally find slim women attractive while they are less attracted to heavier women. Western males, at least. I think that historically there have been cultures that have found heavy women more attractive, but not in the year 2015.
