That is all there is to it.
I am only saying what I prefer in women. I am not setting myself up as a judge of all women. I simply do not have that kind of power. I am not even Hugh Hefner or Anna Wintour, who do have some power over what we see as beautiful in women.
All I have is my little blog. When you hear my name on television then you can start to complain. But you never will because my ideas about beauty are too black.
I cannot like all women equally. So no matter what I say some women will be upset. Mostly it has been thin black women, but this week fat women and even one white woman have shown up here.
But that is why I am not the only man on earth. I was made to love one kind of woman. Other men were made to love other kinds.
No matter what you look like there will be a man who likes you just the way you are. Women are way harder on themselves and how they look than men are.
Female beauty makes the world go round. If women were not beautiful we would not be here. It is a part of life.
In my experience, for a man to go after a woman, marry her and stay with her he has to be turned on by her, he has to love how she looks, he has to be kind of out of his mind about her. Is he making her into an object, just a piece of meat? Not in this case. It is how men fall in love. It is part of boy meets girl.
I did marry a thick black woman. She is fat now. Do I still love her? Of course. Does she still turn me on? Most certainly.
You know, I could just shut up and let Maybelline, Vogue, Hollywood and all the rest fill your mind with their white stick women. But I thought maybe the honest opinion of at least one man who has no money in this fight would be helpful. If only to let you know that not all men go for Hollywood beauty. That the world is broader and better than that.
All my life I have been told by the Hugh Hefners and Anna Wintours of the world that thin white women are the height of beauty. I am sick of it. They are not beautiful to me. In fact they are kind of ugly, most of them. To me black women are far more beautiful. So I am not going to be silent.
