Is It Better To Be Big or Skinny?

I've noticed that on different blogs, if skinny girls are featured on the blog, many people attack them of either being "un-african" of bags of bones, and I've heard this one many times "thick rules, only dogs settle for bones".

I think I have a right to address this issue as I'm not big nor skinny, I'm in between (a uk size 10) so, I'll have to say the following;

1) For a very long time, skinnier girls have been seen as an epitome of beauty and elegance; beauty pageants, music videos, adverts etc and bigger girls have been stung hard by this and always find a way to boost their esteem by teasing smaller girls, trying to make them feel bad about themselves.

2)Traditionally, in our african culture, a fuller figure has been more favoured, but ever since we've been penetrated by the "western" culture (which worships slenderness) skinniness has been recently favoured.

3) So, I earlier stated that I've heard people say this a couple of times "thick rules, only dogs settle for bones" does it mean that skinny girls don't deserve to be with men? Or men with skinny spouses are dogs?

And also, how come there are no plus size super models? How come over 70% of women that are succesful in the entertainment industry (hollywood) are skinny, does it mean bigger girls aren't talented enough?

I'm trying to see things through both sides, I want to know your reader's opinion on this matter.

Thankyou,

A Faithful Blog-reader

Opinions/Debate/Ideas: Should a compulsory three months paid maternity leave be granted to working moms?

YES: I agree that all working moms should have a compulsory three months paid maternity leave, because mothers need to spend as much time as possible with their newborns. Working moms should have three months paid leave, because I believe it is imperative that the mother spend as much time as possible with a newborn baby, to form the bond that will last their entire lives. Many other countries in the developed world provide this benefit for their employees, male and female. In some cases, the mother may not have physically recovered from the birth process before that time is up. Working mothers need at least that long to recover and bond with their babies, before returning to the workforce.

NO: I do not believe that three months of paid maternity leave should be granted to all working moms since they are committed to their jobs on terms that are separate from personal choices like pregnancy. Though I think having some maternity leave is important, I believe having three months of paid compulsory maternity leave is an excessive amount to expect businesses to pay. Such a stipulation would only bias companies against working mothers since they are already slowed down in the later terms of their pregnancy but are not working for less compensation during those times; to expect a business to also pay them for three months of leave when their pregnancy is a personal choice would only cause companies to put a hiring freeze on pregnant women.

What's your opinion?

Man who drugs, rapes and robs women says he did it for revenge

The man, who identified himself simply as Samson Igwe, is now a guest in one of the police cells, after detectives trailed him to a popular hotel in Oregun, Lagos. He was arrested together with a friend he’d recruited to join in his operations.

They operated in  Lagos, Port Harcourt, and Abuja by luring innocent women and robbing them of expensive jewelries, handsets and cash running into millions of naira.

However, in an interview with the Vanguard, he said he had no apology for doing what he did. He said that a lady he picked in Lagos in 2010 when he came back from South Africa rubbed him after he sucked her boobs and slept off. After that incident, he set out to exert revenge on women.
According to him,  “I am a native of Orlu in Imo State, but I traveled to South Africa in  year  2000, and I lived for 10  years before I returned home. I came back with $30,000 and I lodged at the Airport Hotel in Ikeja. On the night,  I went to Metro Park Night club and picked a woman. I took her to my hotel room and when  we got there I had a friend who came to pay me a visit in my room and while we  were discussing, the woman discovered that I just returned from South Africa and I had some money.

8- Month old baby Joshua Oluwajuwonlo with a hole in the heart needs our help

The pictures above is what is left of our once bubbly and lively bundle of joy, Master Joshua Oluwajuwonlo Mordi. It all began at birth when we noticed his breathing was a little faster than normal, but we were too overwhelmed with joy of our new arrival to pay serious attention. Though the Doctors carried out routine checks after which we were assured he was going to be fine or possibly outgrow it, the reverese is what we are now faced with. Reality set in when he suddenly began to lose weight and show little or no interest to feeding and became a shadow of his once lively self. We were advised to try a variety of baby formulas / food and he rejected them all. Please click to continue.

Nigerian Men Not on the Map When It Comes to Largest Manhood in the World

What? hahaha Nigerian men had better stop flaunting. Ridiculous! Hehehe Ghanaians even took the third position.

Congolese men have the largest penises in the world, according to a new research published in the Scientific Journal of  Personality and Individual Differences. The men of Africa's Republic of Congo are best equipped at an enormous 7.1 inches. They are closely followed by Ecuadoreans at 7in, Ghanaians at 6.8in and Colombians at 6.7in. The research which covers 113 nationalities, indicates that in Europe, Icelanders are the best endowed at 6.5in and the Irish are the second smallest at 5.03in - behind only Romanians at 5.01in.

Africans have the biggest penises at an average of 6.3in and north-east Asians the smallest at 4.2in. The average British man's penis is apparently 5.5in when erect - coming ahead of the French at 5.3in, Australians (5.2in), Americans (5.1in) and Irish (5in).

The sensitive subject was tackled by Richard Lynn, Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Ulster Unive

“I reprimanded him for touching my breasts but instead of apologizing, he continued to pushing me by my breasts towards the bus, so when I couldn’t bear it anymore I pushed him too and started running away.Please click to continue.

New Wine Handbags For Ladies

The traditional handbag can accommodate a women's essentials from her make-up to her phone. But one Swiss creator decided that this was simply not enough for women who are leading an increasingly hectic lifestyle.So she took it upon herself to redesign the traditional handbag and make it fit for the modern woman and it even comes complete with a special compartment for a bottle of wine.

Swiss creator Claudia Eicke said she had the idea while thinking of a bag that would hold all the items needed for a whole day.And with women whose lifestyle is a constant race against the clock, she needed to invent a bag that would be suitable for work as well as shopping trips and parties. It is currently on sale for £863.

Forget the price, lets assume it's only about N50k will you buy one?

Nigeria @52 -Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon

"As we celebrate our flag and shambolic autarky at 52, we must realize that Nigeria is still more of a geographic contrivance as has been rightly posited by Chief Obafemi Awolowo. Not with our centrifugal excrescences preponderating over our centripetal proclivities. It’s a matter for mental pabulum that we are daily drifting into our ethnic cocoons.

We still remain one country with disparate ethnic agendas and I can say it for the umpteenth time again that we must sit down in a sovereign national colloquy to discuss the basis for our nationhood. Anything short of this is just vacuous scahiamachy.”

Woman With Two Vaginas Rejects $1M Offer To Star In P Movie

A woman with two vaginas  who has captured the attention of the P industry has said she would never consider accepting any role in a film.
Hazel Jones appeared on TV earlier this week, where she revealed she was diagnosed with ‘uterús didelphys’ – a condition which means she has two wombs and two cervixes.

The 27-year-old has since been approached by Vivid Entertainment, a U.S. ádult film production company.
But the horrified blonde, from High Wycombe said she turned down the deal.

According to This Morning, she said: ‘I have never received any offers of this kind of work nor would I ever consider doing it in a million years. ‘I just want to be left alone.’

The response comes after founder of Vivid Steven Hirsch wrote a letter to Ms Jones offering her $1m to star in one of his films. In the letter, Hirsch wrote: ‘You are obviously an extraordinary woman and I would like to make you an offer to star in an upcoming Vivid production. ‘We would pay you up to $1 million for your services.’
Hirsch also promised to cover travel and accommodation expenses, as the film would be shot in Los Angeles.

Some unbelieveable offers,lol.
