Princess Mae

She’s a short plump bleach-blonde Filippina unwed teenage mom with multiple trashy tattoos, and she has over a million Instagram followers. Not only does she have a million followers, she also has an extraordinarily high engagement rate; several of her more recent posts exceed 200,000 likes. With that much engagement, she can easily make mid six figures a year hawking clothes and beauty products.

Her existence also disproves a common theme I see in the comments that American women are too “fat” to be attractive. In fact, the thick look is becoming more popular with every passing year. Soon we will hear about women dieting to gain weight so they can look more like Princess Mae! (Although they probably won’t be successful because it can be even harder for a naturally thin person to gain weight than for a naturally fat person to lose weight, plus even if there is successful weight gain, more likely than not the weight won’t get distributed to the right places.)

  1. Sorry, but I just don’t see a trend of overweight girls being popular for overweight. That’s a meme that feminists are trying to push, but guys are no more on the fatty bandwagon then they’ve ever been.

    • I dunno. I think the big girls get more love than you might think and always have. I worked with a big gal once who seemed to have guys coming and going. Per the Clinton chubby chaser comment from an earlier post, there are more guys out there like that than generally understood, or at least that’s what she told me.


      July 31, 2018 at 9:54 AM

      • Curle, I didn’t see the post you’re taking about, but I know this:

        Clinton didn’t take up on Monica’s thong-flash because she was chubby. He did so simply because she did that act. And a hot skinny intern wouldn’t have done that because they would have already had a guy. Monica herself said that upon landing the internship, she told friends, “I’m going to get my presidential knee pads.”


        July 31, 2018 at 12:21 PM

      • @njguy73

        No. Bill Clinton is not interested in skinny women. He’s not interested in people who look like Kate Moss or Nicole Richie. He is primarily attracted to borderline overweight people. Like Monica, or pre-2015 Lena Dunham.

        Beauty is neither completely subjective nor completely objective. Leftists are wrong, as are “red-pill” dudes. The AVERAGE white man wants a BMI 20.5 white woman. But outliers exist, Standard deviations are real. Bill Clinton’s ideal woman is about 1 standard deviation higher in BMI than what the average white man wants.


        August 1, 2018 at 7:55 AM

      • I say that Bill Clinton just wasn’t very picky. Monica Lewinsky was what was available to him.

      • SC – did I say Bill Clinton is interested in skinny women? No, I did not. I said he’s into whomever happens to be around. I made no speculation as to his “type.” Would he give the Heisman to a skinny woman? I couldn’t tell you.

        And yes, you’re right, beauty is subjective. I’ve also noticed (yeah, I do that bad thing) that subjectivity tends to follow what a man’s options are. What the average guy would call “hot,” John Mayer wouldn’t give a second look to.

        Seriously, how does that guy do it?


        August 1, 2018 at 4:19 PM

      • “I’ve also noticed (yeah, I do that bad thing) that subjectivity tends to follow what a man’s options are.“

        This sounds right to me.

    • @MSS – the feminist bandwagon is loony but in reality, fat women have no problems getting men, sorry.

      “Her existence also disproves a common theme I see in the comments that American women are too “fat” to be attractive.”

      Common in comments on alt-right sites.

      True story: I saw a Vogue Germany photoshoot on Central Park west once, with very tall female models modeling menswear. Then came a couple, woman pushing baby stroller – she made this Filipina look svelte. White couple. What’s the moral of the story?


      July 31, 2018 at 10:35 AM

      • All young white women have a relatively easy time getting men. Black guys pick off some of the fat white girls, plus the entry of older men into the dating pool ensures that the odds are stacked in favor of women in younger age brackets. This is enough to offset the fact that overweight single women outnumber overweight single men.

        Still, being fat makes them much less competitive. Online dating is drowning in fat girls. A girl who is roughly in shape is differentiated and will receive much more favorable attention, even if her face is rather plain. That means not only more attention from more attractive men, but more attention that considers her a serious dating prospect that they would take home to mom.

      • That’s not what I see IRL. Get away from the computer screen.


        July 31, 2018 at 2:49 PM

      • gothamette, here’s the moral of your story:

        Hot, skinny women do photo-shoots for Vogue. Plain chubby women find an average guy and settle down to motherhood.

        Just call me the modern-day Aesop.


        July 31, 2018 at 12:23 PM

      • The skinny women were not hot.

        I report, you decide.


        July 31, 2018 at 2:49 PM

    • Theres absolutely been the spread of black beauty standards. You see that in the embrace of a fattier, bigger assed body type and hair and makeup that make white women look like very light skinned blacks. The Kardashians and especially Kylie Jenner (who is 100% northern european) are great examples of both those trends.


      July 31, 2018 at 10:55 AM

      • And here’s the moral of the story of Kris Jenner:

        Marry am Armenian guy and your daughters will be bootylicious. Marry a WASP and your daughters will be twigs.

        Man, I’m on a roll today.


        July 31, 2018 at 12:25 PM

      • Kylie Jenner looks very similar to Kim Kardassian. Kim looks more like her natural self but they’ve both had massive amounts of surgery and cake themselves with makeup.


        August 1, 2018 at 1:54 AM

    • It’s long established that the typical male vision of female beauty is heavier than the typical female vision (not the feminist vision). This is because women respond more to social proof, and their sense of beauty is informed by female-oriented media and fashion, which has relatively little input from straight men and tends to get into feedback loops driven by gay men and imbalanced women that value skeletal skinniness.

      In my opinion, the huge T&A look is more sexualized. It’s the look you want in your whore, but not necessarily in the mother of your children. In a decadent society, we would expect that look to become more popular.

      But when men are attracted to “overweight girls”, to be clear, we are talking about girls who carry their weight well (i.e. it goes mostly to T&A and not belly/thighs/arms/face/neck). I believe that carrying weight in T&A is correlated with better health, and this is therefore probably an evolutionary response.

      I have no idea what the proportions are, but a great many women do not carry weight well at all, and for them every excess pound translates to a worse appearance in the eyes of all men except a tiny handful of fetishists. And in any case, carrying weight well always has an upper limit, certainly by the time they’ve hit the “obese” category.


      July 31, 2018 at 11:44 AM

      • Ironically, women with big t&a are more likely to produce healthy children


        July 31, 2018 at 1:59 PM

      • What you just said is kinda like the female version of “alpha man” vs “leader of men”.

        The man that women desire the most is not always the man whom men respect the most.

        The woman that men desire the most is not always the woman whom women respect the most.

        Victoria Silverstedt is an “alpha woman” because she appeals to large numbers of men. Sienna Miller is a “leader of women” because most women want to be friends with her, and look up to her as a social leader.

        The alpha woman has a blandly attractive face, and absolutely must have T&A. Her BMI must be between 18-25. Her IQ doesn’t matter.

        The leader of women must have an interesting face, and while her face should be pretty, it does not have to be extremely attractive. She absolutely must be thin (BMI 16-20), preferably also tall. She must appear to have at least average IQ, although high IQ is not necessary. She must be interesting, and be opinionated on fashion, hair, makeup, and other lifestyle issues (travel, food, home decoration, etc).


        August 1, 2018 at 8:05 AM

      • “The leader of women”

        In your opinion, do either Hillary or Oprah meet the test you laid out?


        August 1, 2018 at 10:39 PM

      • @Curle

        Oprah is the exception. Her personality is so captivating to women, that women want to be friends with her, even though she is fat and ugly. Her social skills are at least 4 standard deviations above average.

        Typical “leaders of women” include Sienna Miller and Gwyneth Paltrow.


        August 2, 2018 at 4:29 PM

    • Yea, overweight will “never” be popular. Lion is right that the “thick” look has been gaining traction in the media, but I think thick/hourglass has always been popular with the heterosexual male but the homosexuals have pushed the sickly thin fashion models in our faces for too long.

      This girl’s face is UGLY but she has big breasts. I wonder what percentage of her followers are male-she definitely doesn’t deserve one million followers.


      July 31, 2018 at 2:54 PM

      • Women on movies and TV who are thick or overweight are played as being overweight, not “normal.” So I don’t see the the think look gaining much traction in the media.

  2. She looks high end normal bmi in this picture, especially if you take some pounds off for the boobs. So not fat.

    There’s an interesting documentary about thin people who try to gain weight for a study. All gain weight but not all at the same rate. Some gain weight but don’t increase at all in measurements (the one asian participant experienced this). For all the participants it’s a struggle to eat the allotted daily calories which probably indicates a biochemical fullness trigger mechanism that is stronger in some individuals than others.


    July 31, 2018 at 9:37 AM

    • You need to look at the other pictures in her feed. Her BMI is definitely well into the “overweight” category.

        I think this Polish actress is pretty, which is probably a signal for Otis & Lion to hate her:


        July 31, 2018 at 10:40 AM

      • Okay I did. She really isn’t that fat. Maybe low overweight bmi, or her weight fluctuates, or there is angle/ photoshop trickery. Her body looks very different one image to another (strangely I’ve noticed the same thing in melania trump’s twitter feed).

        She looks normal bmi here too


        July 31, 2018 at 11:52 AM

      • “I think this Polish actress is pretty”

        No argument here.


        July 31, 2018 at 6:17 PM

    • No, she looks overweight there, which she is. Just do some Googling, look at photos of what different BMIs look like, and play with some BMI calculators. Most people way, way underestimate overweightness. Here are some photos of people who are “high end normal BMI”:

      Here are some who are slightly overweight:

      Here are some who are obese:


      July 31, 2018 at 2:31 PM

      • What seems normal to the casual observer changes according to what is common. Overweight is the new normal, and a healthy weight is becoming almost rare. Meanwhile, women’s ideas of what is attractive to men are always distorted by influence from other women, and turned into caricature. This has horrible results at times — feet-binding in Imperial China, for example.

      • I’m a bmi nerd and am very good at ballparking bmi.

        Her photos are all over the place but stay in the range of high normal to low overweight. So either her weight fluctuates back and forth by ~20 pounds or she’s an angle master.

    This has been the case for my entire life. I’m 6-1, 155 lbs, lean and fit, and the same weight and ectomorph body as when I graduated from high school 30 years ago. I eat pretty much whatever I want, as much as I want. I can put on 5 lbs of fat w/i a couple of weeks if I heavily snack at night on chips or ice cream. I can drop 5 lbs w/i a couple of days if doing some manual labor and missing a meal here or there. My doctor is very happy with my lab work and health.

    July 31, 2018 at 11:18 AM

    • Like the hijab, I’d think older females would welcome aging since it tends to level the playing field (at least for your cohort).

      I remember reading Slate’s Dear Abbey knock-off where a woman asked for advice on how she can keep jealousy for her super-babe seventeen year-old daughter in check. Out in public, she’d see the eyes of men her age dart towards her never-really-accomplished anything offspring. Meanwhile, the mother who has presumably eat/prayed/fucked is invisible.


      July 31, 2018 at 6:13 PM

  8. I don’t think she’s all that fat (although I haven’t seen the other pictures Lion referenced). She is ugly though, and looks like made out of plastic.

  9. Being thin or over weight doesn’t matter. They’ll receive likes if they have big tits and an acceptable hip to waist ratio. Hips, lips, tits = power + the attention whoring capabilities that social media provides = easy money for attractive trashy sluts. IG is an image focused socail media.

      • It is beautiful, affordable, and developing at a rapid pace. There is a love of certain prole things like fast food, but there is also the minority of the extremely well-educated that would get your viewpoint. Met some government attorneys their and they were very compatible and communicative in a refreshing way. You could find love if you went for someone only slightly younger than yourself and with a post-grad education, especially law school. The bar passage rate hovers at around 26%, so there are many intelligent JDs who are not practicing attorneys, especially as you can only take the bar exam 3 times, and you are out.

The exception are women who don’t have a lot of followers, like under 1,000 or especially under 500. These women get likes from their real life social circle and it’s usually majority women.

  13. I work with a fat, plain looking woman in her mid 50s. Cranky all the time but nice. Her husband recently dumped her. She put up an online dating profile a few days ago and so far has sixty (60!) responses, including from guys as young as 28. I don’t think this means men prefer fat women but it goes to show there is an incredible number of thirsty betas out there with no standards. I find that depressing.

    I don’t think men (other than those with a BBW fetish) have a preference for obese or overweight women but that’s what’s out there in mass numbers. Most men, especially betas, have adapted to it as the new normal. If all men rejected fat women our obesity epidemic never would have gotten this out of control.

    As for this Filipina on IG she might me a little fat but I can see her appeal. She has boobs, a pretty face and sexiness. She is more appealing than 90% of the fat women I see in real life. I follow a lot of women on IG and they all have that slut appeal that I like so much.

  15. I recall reading that overweight women tend to have more sexual partners than their slimmer counterparts — which falls in line with the evo-pscyh narrative: women ideally seek to secure a long-term, exclusive commitment from a high status male.

    As for the attraction to overweight women — I wish it were a fetish I had. Instead I’m attracted the women most other men are pursuing.


    July 31, 2018 at 6:03 PM

    • I actually know someone with the fat fetish. He’s a black guy who is only attracted to morbidly obese white women. He has videos, goes to something called a BBW convention. He has no trouble finding girlfriends that fit his criteria and he has been married a couple of times. He’s a really nice guy, a postal service worker and is overweight (but not as obese as the women he likes). I haven’t seen any stats but my impression is black guys are more likely to have this fetish for whatever reason.

I got a friend who migrated from West Europe to East Europe, he clearly expressed the joy of dating slim women in his new country comparing to the fats he had to date in his old country. It’s not like he used to like fats, it is just that there was no other options for his age bracket, now that there are he certainly not going to date fat women. I can also testify about myself that in moment of desperation I dated fat women, once I gained confidence, skills and improved my own looks I refuse to date fatties anymore.
