Skinny guys

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
I 've noticed that a lot of people in this forum are skinny. Do you guys look at skinny as some type of ideal?
post #2 of 56
skinny guys definitely look a lot better than non-skinny guys.

not an ideal, i've always been a skinny motherfucker. it took me two years of working out and forcing myself to eat to get up to a whopping 155lbs

I stay skinny because my alternative seems to be simultaneously skinny and fat.

Not a good look.

Being skinny, it's just in my "jeans".

I agree... at first I thought I was just gonna stay skinny until I started getting a slight beer gut while my arms and legs remained twig-like. Very unattractive. If it wasn't for school (at least that's my excuse) I'd actually use the gym membership I pay for and make myself bigger overall.

I think the ideal man is low fat but medium build as far as muscle. Think greek statuary. An example is Randy Moss.

Just my opinion. Good news is different women like different kinds of guys so there is room for all types.

I'm pretty fit and I definitely wouldn't count myself as "skinny". Not a muscle-bound hulk in the least bit, but I'm 5"11 170lbs.

I think the point he was trying to make is that a lot of you are quite thin, which I've also noticed.

So have I. I'm one of them, and I hate it. Why some idealize it, I don't know.

In terms of body, I say that Brad Pitt is ideal. While he is very cut, his frame is still quite skinny.

Skinny just kind of happens, and it seems like skinny guys are into clothes more than big dudes.

From Phil's Field Guide to Trolls, Version 5.11

The Contrarian Troll. A sophisticated breed, Contrarian Trolls frequent boards whose predominant opinions are contrary to their own. A forum dominated by those who support firearms and knife rights, for example, will invariably be visited by Contrarian Trolls espousing their beliefs in the benefits of gun control. It is important to distinguish between dissenters and actual Contrarian Trolls, however; the Contrarian is not categorized as a troll because of his or her dissenting opinions, but due to the manner in which he or she behaves:

- Contrarian Warning Sign Number One: The most important indicator of a poster's Contrarian Troll status is his constant use of subtle and not-so-subtle insults, a technique intended to make people angry. Contrarians will resist the urge to be insulting at first, but as their post count increases, they become more and more abusive of those with whom they disagree. Most often they initiate the insults in the course of what has been a civil, if heated, debate to that point.

- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Two: Constant references to the forum membership as monolithic. "You guys are all just [descriptor]." "You're a lynch mob." "You all just want to ridicule anyone who disagrees with you."

- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Three: Intellectual dishonesty. This is only a mild indicator that is not limited to trolls, but Contrarians display it to a high degree. They will lie about things they've said, pull posts out of context in a manner that changes their meanings significantly, and generally ignore any points for which they have no ready answers.

- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Four: Accusing the accusers. When confronted with their trolling, trolls immediately respond that it is the accusers who are trolls (see Natural Predators below). Often the Contrarian will single out his most vocal opponent and claim that while he can respect his other opponents, this one in particular is beneath his notice.

- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Five: Attempts to condescend. Pursued by Troll Bashers (see Natural Predators below), the Contrarian will seek refuge in condescending remarks that repeatedly scorn his or her critics as beneath notice - all the while continuing to respond to them.

- Contrarian Warning Sign Number Six: One distinctive mark of Contrarian Trolls is that every thread in which they dissent quickly devolves into a debate about who is trolling whom. In the course of such a debate the Contrarian will display many of the other Warning Signs mentioned above.

Contrarian warning sign behaviors may be shared by other breeds.

6 feet 170 lbs, due to years of kickboxing, soccer and plain working out.

By the way, not to say that I'm into guys, but skinny guys definitely do not look better than "non-skinny" guys.

I'd say medium, but in good shape, would probably be ideal.
