Why is it like a sin for a girl to be "thicker" (I don't want to say fat because it may offend someone)
I mean heavy guys don't get nearly as much trouble as girls... this is really frustrating for me because I'm a girl with weight issues and it hurts that no one really likes me because I'm bigger than a stick. So guys, would you ever date a girl that is "heavy"? Why or why not?
Also, I'd love to talk with other overweight girls to see what they'd have to say about this.. and please NO mean remarks/comments.

I hope nobody finds this offending in any way.
To be honest, other than problems with genetic obesity, thickness isn't exactly an excuse. It's not a burden that you cannot rid yourself of; however, if you like the way you look, there is no problem to it.
With the present concept of thinner is better, it is likely that most guys go for girls that are socially "more attractive"
Back to my previous point, any guy or girl can choose to be thick, thin, or somewhere in between. It's a matter of lifestyle and although it may be hard to accomplish, it sure can be accomplished. (Unless you have a disorder for which you cannot)
There are of course people that are attracted to different physical features of a person and although it may just be physical features, it is still a first impression.
I believe that men have it just as hard as women, if not harder when it comes to being overweight. Men who are overweight tend to be more often blamed on their laziness or their large appetites when women are usually just accepted as being overweight (from my personal observation) when in turn, both should be treated equally.
My opinions may be a bit bias in that I myself am somewhat overweight and trying to lose a few (maybe 10-20 pounds :P).
I'm 6'0" used to be 220 pounds and now down to 190. So believe me when I say, if you'd like to lose weight, you can do it, but if you like the way you are now, then just be happy!1
