WTF: Potbellies on Dudes Are Now Officially Hot

Oh, it’s so unfair! We women are held to ridiculous American Apparel size-0 standards (yes, mostly self-imposed, but the media practically makes us do it!), while men get to eat what they want, become chubby, and are still considered cute and even sexy (e.g. Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, Tobey Maguire). To make matters worse, the NYTimes Styles section on Wednesday embraced potbellies on guys in Williamsburg as a hot, new trend — an ironic reaction to metrosexuality and “manscaping.” In other words, beer guts — but only on guys — are now stylish. (Salon’s Broadsheet does a nice job of poo-poo-ing this particular piece of doo-doo.)

Okay, let’s face it, it all depends on what you like. I have a nice sized little beer-gut that many women and gay guys find sexy. But, that’s because I’m very good-looking, 6’1″ tall, and built like a football player (I’m not a blimp). My lady finds my belly warm and cuddly and uses it as a pillow. Yeah! So, gals,if you really like skinny guys–great, but some of us just aren’t built that way. There’s something for everybody.


On the contrary, a pot-belly is adorable…if you’re under the age 1.


I’m a guy with a Rogen-esque body shape.
in my experience.. women do NOT find that hot.
whoever thinks it’s true is just indulging in wishful thinking

also.. side note… a little bit of weight on a girl is not a bad thing.
