Listen To The Sea Cow
I must say, nothing aggravates me more than hearing someone say, "You have such a pretty face, if only you were thinner," or, "At least she's got a beautiful face," whether in reference to me or any voluptuous woman. While I respect that not everyone will find beauty in pudge, it's absurd to essentially insult someone with a backhanded compliment. Like the manatee (a.k.a. sea cow) says, it's perfectly possible and common to be fat and beautiful. I know many gorgeous plus-size women who aren't attractive simply for their faces, but for their bodies as well (and sometimes MORE SO for their bodies). The whole "at least you have a nice face" thing is tired and over-used, and quite frankly, untrue. Seriously, listen to the sea cow.
