Fat or balding — still not UGLY

I read somewhere that a woman cannot be truly equal to a man till she is fat and balding and still think she is attractive to the opposite sex!

There were other criteria for the  great equaliser like forgetting hubby at the petrol pump (gas station) and not realising it. But the one about being fat stayed with me all these years. For the longest time, I equated fat to ugly. But, I don’t have a problem with it. I am ok with the label coz it is not a sticky one in my case. I still feel like a thin girl (that’s a stretch, yes, but ‘medium’ doesn’t quite cut it). Call it conditioning, call it whatever, I know how men and women look differently at obesity. Fat guys don’t obsess about their weight, the way fat women do. If you think they do, I would welcome a guest post on men’s issues with body image and conditioning 🙂 But, this is about how women perceive their worth or attractiveness based on how they look.

And as far as balding goes, I heard this one — men who are balding at the forehead think, men who are balding at the crown as sexy, and men who are balding all over think they are sexy! That joke would have never worked with a woman! So that is what makes this Dabur Vatika ad is really tick.
