    To let my guy flag fly, I've never really been in a situation where I can't attract women, even while carrying an extra 40 lbs like I am now. As long as I can do that, I figure my body is ok.

    Okay. I went and had Google explain it to me.

    My thoughts are that there is not currently a dad bod "craze", "trend", or "fad".

    American men, by and large, are fat asses, and American women, also fat asses by and large, are accepting of it, and vice versa.

    There's nothing "new" or "trendy" about that.

    If men and women in America didn't accept each others fatassedness 75% of America wouldn't be getting laid.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Gotta say, in general I've seen a lot more fatasses watching BBC and Sky than I've seen on any American channel, a lot more.

    There's really nothing wrong with being better than other people.

    Re: What do you think of the dad bod craze?

    The guys whose pics are in the linked article, really aren't anything unusual. One of them is a bit on the heavy side, but for the most part, I'd consider them fairly average. They just aren't toned and muscular. I haven't seen evidence of any fad or craze, and these particular guys, I'd think are accepted as the norm, if not better. Now, that being said, if you're going to ask if most of us are going to choose lean and muscular over the dad bod, I'd say, yeah, probably, if we're just basing it on looks, but with someone you find attractive, there's going to usually be more at play, at least from a woman's point of view.

    What do you think of the dad bod craze?

    I didn't hear about it until the last week.

    I'm cool with it. The less we (the average person) feel * immensely pressured* to look like someone from the film 300 or a Penthouse Model, the better.

    There's been a rise in image problems and eating disorders for both boys/men and girls/women, and that should be concerning.
