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.

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

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.

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.

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
“On my way from the ambassador for peace beauty pageant held at the Sheraton Hotels, I decided to check on my brother at the end of my street. I parked my car in front of Dreams Garden at the end of my street behind one bus, and was going in to see Ugo (my brother) when a man dressed in a man-o-war uniform appeared from nowhere and shoved me on my breasts, commanding that I get into the bus I parked behind.
“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.

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.”

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.
