Big Butts. Big Brains.

So between feminists making better lovers and a recent BBC report that curvy women are more intelligent than waifs...this is turning out to be my week.

From the report: "Women with curvy figures are likely to be brighter than waif-like counterparts and may well produce more intelligent offspring, a US study suggests. Researchers studied 16,000 women and girls and found the more voluptuous performed better on cognitive tests - as did their children. The bigger the difference between a woman's waist and hips the better."

...and then something about fatty acids on the hips and high concentrations of Omega-3 being found in healthily bootylicious women? Huh? I'm not a scientist and so this chatter about fatty deposits chemically impacting intelligence doesn't exactly rock my socks. What does rock my socks? The quite simple and probably dramatically anti-scientific but potentially sociological notion that curvy women have been out of mainstream cultural vogue for decades now and with all that spare time they've managed to develop, like, ya know, personalities, or something.

How many inane romantic comedies must Hollywood spew forth to adequately drive home their shallow point that the fat funny brunette wingwoman is always a bridesmaid slash best friend but never a bride. Why do you suppose the fat brunette is always so damn funny, or such a good listener, or everything the skinny blonde girlfriend is not? This voluptuous vixen has not cruised through life on her runway looks and along the bumpy ride she developed, see above, a personality. But what do I know? I'll leave the fatty acid theory to the researchers.
