AN SSBBWs WORLD
Information and rants about living in the real world as an SSBBW
As SSBBWs, we live in a world built for smaller people. Each day we face challenges to fit in, or even to just fit. While education and information are powerful tools, our best resource is each other. Let us know your tips or rants about this subject at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each month we try to profile an SSBBW to help inspire those SSBBWs who haven't yet gotten that they are wonderful, caring, sexy, special people. We are always looking for more great and wonderful SSBBWs that feel they can be an inspiration to others to be profiled. Send us a mail if you are interested!!

|"Anyone acquainted with Ireland knows that the morning of St. Patrick's Day consists of the night of the seventeenth of March flavored strongly with the morning of the eighteenth."
|"Saint Patrick was a gentleman, who through strategy and stealth
Drove all the snakes from Ireland, here's a drink to his health!
But not too many drinks, lest we lose ourselves and then
Forget the good Saint Patrick, and see them snakes again!"
Letters to the Editor...
We've received a few letters to the editor lately and would like to post them here. If you have anything to say we'd love to hear from you too, so send us an email.
"I wish SSBBW's would stop portraying an inferiority complex. Gosh, it drives me crazy. I wish you would put forth the simple honest message that you are superior in beauty and often intelligence, and that it is natures design and perfectly normal.
I have zero attraction to skinny women, no more than to another man. A womans whole biology is fat based - even their primary brain neurotransmitters. Since the brain is 90% fat - I think skinny women suffer intellectual deficiencies. I almost always find SSBBW's to be much smarter and interesting.
And of course, much much sexier. I don't want to hold a woman that feels like a man, I want a woman that is soft and warm, a comfort in life ... and likewise, men should be strong and muscular.
I am all for sexism ... men and women are not made equal in design. We are all equal in the eyes of God, but we are not made to operate and function the same way; and we sure aren't made to feel the same way :)
Fat is what women are good for and muscles are what men are good for.
And please - stop with the stupid "medical studies" which are 99% nonsense. Anyone trained in the scientific method easily sees all their flaws and bias. The true test of fat/health is to look at old women. Skinny old women are frail, few in number, usually with nerve problems, osteoporosis, etc. Fat old women are more common, and without problems, so long as their diet was good.
Of course, if you eat junk, you will have problems. But fat that is a result of a good diet has no negative medical consequences in my studies - which are fairly extensive. That is always the missing control in "fat studies". They don't separate those with a good diet, and those with a junk-food diet.
It isn't the fat that is unhealthy, just the foods ...
Saying fat is unhealthy is like saying any other normal natural body part is unhealthy. What makes fat worse than muscle? anything bad said about fat could equally be said about muscle. Weight strengthens the body/heart and circulatory system ... I could go on and on - but I just wanted to make the point that people play games with perspectives.
I think a big part of fat-biases is part of the dehumanizing agenda which keeps us focused on petty affairs while the elite plunder us blind ... just like TV, Hollywood, etc. junk food for the brain." [Chris]
