I am sure things were alot better - but I would be interested to hear a first hand report from somebody who lived through it.

I was in high school in the early 70s. There simply wasn't anybody who was fat, except maybe a couple of typical "fat kids" and even they were more big-boned, not fat.

We ate crappy food in huge quantities too. Ate constantly. Drank beer. Lazed around.

Not only was nobody fat, we didn't even think about it. It simply wan't part of our universe.

Fast forward to the present: I was in the city and walking down the street next to a line of kids 15-20 yrs old waiting for a concert. Literally, 1/3 of the girls in that line were really fat. It was inexplicable and heartbreaking, like, I just don't even know why this could be happening.

Is it computers? Cell phones? Massive female and male neuroses?

It is NOT the food. In the 1970s food was just as crappy and ultra-processed.

The
food
has
not
changed

Why the obesity? It's insane.

RE: High School Fashions in 1969 -- Nobody was fat
Fat acceptance. We've conjured up medical excuses and praised fat people as brave. Also a decline in national and personal pride as we become more globalized and more dependent on government assistance.

Most importantly, there is a record number of women in politics, HR and public administration roles. Male leaders expect the people to conform to a national ideal that is best for the nation. Women expect the people to conform to their hamsterized version of a national ideal that pushes their emotional agendas and masks their obvious inferiorities. Women know they are not physically equal to men and once in power, want to bring men down. "You want to procreate? You're going to have to sacrifice and marry a fat woman who won't respect you."

Snacking is what's changed. It's encouraged and marketed.

A lot more women in the workforce shifting the family away from home cooked food.

And arguably the food/overall nutrition itself has changed. The average height of these later generations is on the rise. Can't blame that on weak wills and cultural degeneracy

RE: High School Fashions in 1969 -- Nobody was fat
I read that obesity exploded as of the late 80s and early 90s; the biggest social changes which occurred during those time periods were cable TV going nationwide, home video game consoles, (and now of course the internet and social networking).

So the biggest cause seems to be lack of excercise and people trading physical recreation for sendentary hobbies like TV binge watching and video gaming

(e.x. fast food and junk food had already been around for a long time, so blaming "fast food" seems to be a fallacy, lack of exercise seems to be the much bigger culprit, blaming fast food just seems to be more "trendy" since it allows left wingers to point a finger at "corporations" rather than at the lardos themselves for only getting up to take a walk to the front door once a month or so).

-

Also shows just how short term our memories are; within just 30 years the size of average Americans has ballooned into something which was abnormal for the entirety of human history and yet we're being conditioned to "accept it".

(And ironically those on the left who advocate 'fat acceptance' are essentially just acting as unpaid PR agents for the major corporations who sell junk food to millions; they might as well just revert to the PR of the 1960s and start advocating smoking as a "healthy lifestyle" choice as well just like big tobacco companies did).

This thread made me sad a little bit. Not for whats happening nowadays but what we've lost.

This is the USA I knew as a kid. Today as an adult I want to avoid looking in the Political forum for fear of seeing what has become of it and Europe.

In my neck of the woods there seems to be an obsession among young fatties for denim short-shorts paired with full length stockings of any variety, including fishnet.

Every time I pass by one I have to fight the compulsion to scream "do you realise how disgusting you look!?"

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

Most girls are too fat to be lifted by a man and most dudes are too weak to carry a girl piggyback style.

In addition to that, when your father was young hypergamy wasn't as pronounced as today, so most guys had a decent girlfriend. Nowadays, most guys either don't have a girlfriend, or if they do, she's a fat train-wreck.

Speaking of which, a shitlord almost had his way :

Too fat for Facebook: photo banned for depicting body in 'undesirable manner'

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2...are_btn_tw

Facebook has apologized for wrongly banning a photo of plus-sized model Tess Holliday for violating its ‘health and fitness’ advertising policy

Cherchez la Femme, an Australian group that hosts popular culture talkshows with “an unapologetically feminist angle”, said Facebook rejected an advert featuring Tess Holliday, a plus-sized model wearing a bikini, telling the group it violated the company’s “ad guidelines”.

After the group appealed against the rejection, Facebook’s ad team initially defended the decision, writing that the photo failed to comply with the social networking site’s “health and fitness policy”.

“Ads may not depict a state of health or body weight as being perfect or extremely undesirable,” Facebook wrote. “Ads like these are not allowed since they make viewers feel bad about themselves. Instead, we recommend using an image of a relevant activity, such as running or riding a bike.”

In a statement on Monday, Facebook apologized for its original stance and said it had determined that the photo does comply with its guidelines.

Corn syrup wasn't as prevalent. GMOs, hormones, antibiotics, BPAs/hormonal disruptive compounds as well. Also, those 60s kids didn't grow up with that crap, they were born in the 40s and 50s, whereas GenY/millenials were exposed to it from birth.

Fat acceptance contributes, but it could also be just a symptom of capitulation rather than causality.

All those girls are huge WB. From hairstyle, to feminine face, adorable smile, and hot bod.

If your father and his friends were the "average guys" back at the time, holy shit what a wonderful time that was!!!! Its not even comparable to the average guy now.

I would say that my father and his friends were pretty average looking like the dudes in this photo. They weren't ripped guys with huge biceps and 6 packs.

You have to always remember that none of the technology we have today existed then, so the only times a girl would get approached and asked out on a date is if a guy did it in person himself or possibly called her house and managed to get past her cockblocking parents.

Emails, the internet, cell phones and especially smartphones have ensured that a girl has so many thirsty guys chasing her, (most of which would be too nervous to approach her in person) that she can permit herself to be lazy with her appearance, and also get fat and bitchy with no negative consequences.

A girl who didn't take care of her appearance (or god forbid) got fat and bitchy back in the 1960s/1970s would have no one approaching her in person for years, or possibly ever.

This is very true. Most of the chemicals in our food, water and medication did not exist back then.

Our food, beverages and medicines are not only making us fat....they are also making men weaker because of all the weird chemical contents.

Food & drink companies in particular have done everything possible to make sure their products as addictive as humanely possible mostly by adding sugar to absolutely everything they can, even bread, soup, all cereals, ready meals, most beverages and anywhere else they can cram it in.....so even if you think you are eating healthy, you are probably still getting fatter, weaker or addicted.

Here is a list of the many different names for sugar as an ingredient:

Agave nectar
Barbados sugar
Barley malt
Barley malt syrup
Beet sugar
Brown sugar
Buttered syrup
Cane juice
Cane juice crystals
Cane sugar
Caramel
Carob syrup
Castor sugar
Coconut palm sugar
Coconut sugar
Confectioner's sugar
Corn sweetener
Corn syrup
Corn syrup solids
Date sugar
Dehydrated cane juice
Demerara sugar
Dextrin
Dextrose
Evaporated cane juice
Free-flowing brown sugars
Fructose
Fruit juice
Fruit juice concentrate
HFCS (High-Fructose Corn Syrup)
Honey
Icing sugar
Invert sugar
Malt syrup
Maltodextrin
Maltol
Maltose
Mannose
Maple syrup
Molasses
Muscovado
Palm sugar
Panocha
Powdered sugar
Raw sugar
Refiner's syrup
Rice syrup
Saccharose
Sorghum Syrup
Sucrose
Sugar (granulated)
Sweet Sorghum
Syrup
Treacle
Turbinado sugar
Yellow sugar

and more names for the artificial stuff:

Acesulfame-K
Alitame
Aspartame
Caloric Sweeteners
Crystalline Fructose
Cyclamates
D-Tagatose
Erythritol
Glucose Syrup
Glycerol
HSH Hydrogenated Starch
Hydroslsates
Isomalt (Palatinat)
Lacititol
Mannitol
Neohesperdine
Neotame
Polydextrose
Polyols
Saccharin
Sorbitol
Stevia
Sucralose
Sugar Alcohols
Thaumatin
Trehalose
Xylitol

And usually it was a guy from her own high school. There were always a few girls who went out with guys from other high schools, though they were outliers.

The only clear equivalent to today's Facebook queen, and still an outlier, was the girl pretending to go out with a guy from another school.

I don't understand it and probably never will. I can and probably do eat more than any morbidly obese person, yet as far as being in shape, I'm easily top 1 to 3% in the D.C. area (that's not saying very much), top 5% in Miami and top 10% in Southern California. I do tons of cardio and weights (I've only been good about doing weights for the last three years), but that can't be what separates me from all of these fat slobs. I'm lost.

Edit: Also, I constantly see really, really unhealthy looking people buying extremely healthy food and fairly in-shape people buying garbage and it just confuses me even more. I see tons of thin (not necessarily in shape, more waify) Asian people buying pure sugar all the time.

RE: High School Fashions in 1969 -- Nobody was fat
Not to digress from this lovely discussion about sugar and obesity rates - but as pretty, thing, and feminine as these 60's broads are, remember this was the generation that ruined everything. These were the bra burners. The ones who started leaving the kitchen for college and the office. These were the baby boomers who started an epidemic of divorce in the 80's and 90's. This is the generation that started raising their children in single parent homes and destroying the traditional family dynamic.

Not saying it's wrong to see them as attractive girls. Surely they were - it was a sexy time in America. Girls were less reserved, more sexually liberal, etc. The most endearing thing about these photos is that no one had smartphones.

RE: High School Fashions in 1969 -- Nobody was fat
I grew up in the 70s. People didn't eat out very often, and certainly not nearly as often as today. MOM was at home cooking up decent chow, and you ate it. Even if it wasn't great chow, that's what you ate. Now Mom is a cubicle drone who picks up take-out on the way home, or takes the kids out to some caloric hiroshima like Cheescake Factory every other night, or the kids just buy their own crappy fast-food dinner.

RE: High School Fashions in 1969 -- Nobody was fat
Taking a poke at other generations is a layup.

The majority of the people in every generation are ok, getting along the best they can, and have no say in what the politicians, corporatists, or attention whores do to characterize their cohort.

Trashing a whole generation based on the actions of the mendacious few, while satisfying, is an intellectual cul de sac. Get if off your chest if you have to, to blow off steam, just don't imagine it to be an accurate representation of the millions who are being misrepresented and reduced to a simple characterization. Yeah, we all know how good it feels, how righteous, to take a moment to say that [selected group] has fucked it all up. No really, they really have, they really deserve it, unlike the criticisms of my generation.

The elites laugh at how easily they can divide us, based on race, age, sex, whatever, it is almost too easy for them, and we play into their hands when we focus on stuff like this.

“That sig BTW is a very asinine anti-family anti-parent quote. You live in a country where 40% of children grow up without a biological father, yet somehow “the greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of its parents”? Sorry but this is fruity Boomer nonsense.”

And usually it was a guy from her own high school. There were always a few girls who went out with guys from other high schools, though they were outliers.

The only clear equivalent to today's Facebook queen, and still an outlier, was the girl pretending to go out with a guy from another school.

I just looked at my yearbook for 1970, I started highschool in 1969. We had about 1500 students and no, there were no truly obese Girls. There were some "Big Boned" farm girl types , but none waddling around with muffin tops and gunts like you see today. There was a lot of social pressure back then from other girls to look good...Here is what it was like

OK, I was a High School Freshman in 1969. This is EXACTLY as I remember it. The chicks actually WERE thin and even the UGLY ones were built damned nice. Fat chicks were few and far between and not as fat as the average cow is today. Life was FUN and we didn't eff around with Political Correctness or any of that stuff. WE HAD FUN. And the girls were effen beautiful. Actually feminine with curves. The girls liked the boys and vice verse and there was no misandry. The music was 100 times better than the rap crap today. The cars were incredibly cool. Really, American Society peaked in 1968, then the Communists like John Kerry and Jane Fonda ruined everything with their mindless Anti-Americanism. If kids today ever get a hint of what it was like for us, they're gonna be SO pissed off.

If you want a picture of high school from 1969 to 1974, watch reruns of this outstanding program from that era. It's definitely one of the best high school shows ever:





There were 122 episodes of Room 222. Today it is almost forgotten.
