I am Black American and I watch Nigerian movies, Ghanaian movies, etc, I noticed that the fat women in these shows are not presented as being unattractive at all.
While in American movies the fat women are usually portrayed as unattractive, desperate and lonely, and if not all of those, then they are presented as the aggressors(that is they chase the man) as if the only way a man will notice them is if they initiate contact because they are less attractive than the thin counterparts. Fat women are always presented as inferior to the thin woman/women in American movies to sum it up.
Not that any of this bothers me. I am objective to it. I just noticed a stark difference in the presentation of fat women in African movies vs. American movies.
I just wondered which body type considered most attractive in Africa or at least Nigeria. Also has the west's obsession or glorification of thinner women had any influence in what African's consider an attractive body?
