Why are so many deathfats women?

I was just walking around today and I saw three female deathfats within a few hours. Had to be in the range of 5'5" and 300-400 pounds. It occurred to me then it's actually not terribly uncommon to see women that preposterously fat, but it's extraordinarily rare that I've ever seen men that big. I don't lurk in the Deathfats board much, but at a quick glance, almost all of them I see are women.

Why is this? Are women just more prone to eating disorders in general?

That doesn't explain it for me tbh. Most men these days work sedentary jobs as well and I don't see that trend going up for them at a comparable rate. You would think it would at least be proportional to the amount of men that do work hard labor jobs vs sitting jobs, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Since nobody seems to want to give you the actual answer, it's testosterone, which tends to aid weight loss. Estrogen makes you more likely to plump up because it tells your body you need to retain fat for producing babies and milk.

If you think I'm kidding go check out the troons -- and I mean the ones who have been on tiddy skittles for a long period of time -- most of them will have gained weight. A lot of them turn into...

Surprised that no one mentioned height yet. Apparently average men's height in the U.S. is 5'9 while women's is 5'4. A few inches of height can make a big difference in how fat someone looks. If men and women are eating roughly the same types and quantities of food they're both going to pack on a lot of weight but because of their shorter height women are going to look a lot more rotund than men.

Potato retard response. 'It's a disease' and its derivatives are occidental crackpot psychology dished out to make shitty people feel better about themselves.
Um no, it's a disease like lung cancer caused by heavy smoking. Are you saying lung cancer isn't a "disease"? Lmao you must have got your medical degree from a mail-order diploma.

We've tried that in an institutional sense for half a century - people only get fatter, more drug addicted, and worthless. It ain't working.
No one understands what you're babbling about. The basic principles of weight loss/gain are simple - if you consume more calories than you burn daily, you'll gain weight. You don't even "need" to exercise or even eat "healthy" - you could just eat less of the slop you normally do and lose weight if you're willing and able to deal with the cravings that "calorie-dense" foods like most fast food and junk food might leave.

Most people shouldn't need "counseling" to lose weight if they just stick to basic principles of healthy eating, and proportioning on their own and avoid "fad diets" and trendy marketing gimmicks.

I'm sure more 'understanding' is what's necessary though, right?
Oh yes... the predicable, boilerplate response about "people don't need dem durn understandings, dey need some'un to be harsh to 'em derp derp!"- that's been done to death more than "rickrolling" and has been about as effective as rickrolling has at making people laugh in 2021 after clicking the billionth link.

Coming up with something's about as unoriginal as it's possible to get and thinking you're the only Einstein who's ever discovered it might very well be a sign of serious autism.

Not to mention the stupidity in not realizing that "shaming" something often has the opposite effect and makes it more attractive to consumers, such as how a lot of young people try a drug because they've heard it's "bad for them" and want to look edgy, or how video games and other media which ended up being "banned in X many countries" ended up becoming popular because of that very reason.

toxic masculinity
Definitely should've stopped reading there.

I blame a lot of stuff on that but I have a hard time believing this is one of them. You don't get that fat without something else seriously wrong with you. Your environment needs to be set up in such a way that nothing prevents you from getting there, but you yourself really have to be the driving force behind eating that horrifically much.
By that weird logic, I guess you can blame "the men's right's movement" for erectile disfunction or something.

Dudes with eating disorders typically can't afford to just sit at home all day and eat, they at least have to do some work. Women can always find some dumb fucker willing to throw money at them to support their hedonism.
1. You've obviously never met Jack Scalfani.

2. Yes, deathfats as in "My 600 LB Life" types can definitely eat themselves into legal disability status. Or they could just hang out at the local homeless shelter and eat whatever slop the cook serves in addition to whatever junk food they've purchased with their food stamp card.

Eventually we will be able to enjoy insulting women as much as our fellow men. Until the Muslims take over, then it'll get even better.
Then more Muslim immigration is the solution, since they won't tolerate vices such as gluttony (or adultery or pornography or masturbation or video games or men not wearing beards) which decadent white Westerners do. We need more Muslims.

You know, it makes no sense as a general statement, but there might be some directional accuracy.

There's a lot of stories, just that I've known of in my personal life, of very heavy set men being shamed by friends and family into losing weight just through sheer ridicule. Meanwhile, calling women fat to their face is generally considered 'beyond the pale' and most people will simply not even attempt to do it for fear of blowback or just looking like a giga-dick. Perhaps that's not the case in some parts of the country, but it is where I live.

So, maybe there would be more male deathfats, but a general environment of higher expectations and shame stops them before getting to that point.
Well there are entire threads on this site dedicated to deathfats, and so far I don't think a single one of them has been "shamed" into losing their weight.

The only reason people "shame" and make lots of jabs at fat people here and elsewhere is for the lulz, anyone who is seriously retarded enough to do it because they think it is "working" or something really needs a lolcow thread about themselves.

escapism through their jobs, etc.
Or they just get a job that allows them to eat all day like Jack Scalfani.

I don't think that's the reason they do it, but it doesn't stop it from being a good side effect.

Point.

Tarded femoid-ish here. It's commonly because women have a lot more hormones and Estrogen is known to increase fat levels in order to provide the ability to bear children. It's common for women to eat from emotions and become overweight or obese. Women commonly cope via stress-eating and such. These deathfats tend to take it a step further.

Estrogen promotes fat growth. (cushions babies, etc.)
Testosterone promotes lean muscle growth. That’s the basic version.

(Both sexes have “lots of hormones.”) Much else (itt) is speculation, but what those two hormones do, lays a firm groundwork for propensity to gain. You can get way more technical w/ all this, though it eventually boils down to the basics.

Yeah, it's not black and white. Boogie is another case of a comfort eating male. I was just saying in general it's more of a woman thing, and that's only based on personal experience.

Also regarding shaming, it's not completely worthless. Knowing that being a fatty will make people laugh at you either openly or behind your back makes for some great motivation to lose weight. Obviously doesn't work if you have no shame to begin with, or are too much a failure to act and improve yourself. It's the whole reason this website exists, and no Deathfat lolcow can be shamed into losing weight. Shaming regular people can work though.

Women are less active and have a higher BMI in general.

But that doesn't explain why so many tend to be deathfats, and that's because the gender ratio of deathfats is roughly equal. You only happen to see femfats out in the wild because the male ones tend to be less social and aware of their fatass status.

Jazz Jennings is a great example of this theory in action.

Conversely a lot of FtM troons lose weight and their titties shrivel up into tube socks because they inject T.

Edit: I lied. Apparently everyone waited for page 2 to start pointing at estrogen.

Because alot of female deathfats are all over social media. Their are just as many male deathfats. But they don't brandish themselves online all the time.
