FAT

What's the big deal with the word "fat"? Why is it such a taboo word that when people say "fat" instead of "curvy" or "thick", it's so offensive?

Because apparently we all need to be politically correct and sugar coat things.

Well, Curvy does not mean a woman is heavy, curvy means that they have a bit larger breast, a waist that curves in, then hips that curve back out. Also, having a larger rear end would be curvy.

Thick means heavier set, however, I would not call a woman with multiple rolls thick, more like a woman who has a larger bone structure and a bit heavier set.

But someone who has rolls, and saggy flabby fat, is fat. Sorry, it is. It's not saying they are unhealthy or that they don't have a medical condition, however fat is fat.

I agree that there is a difference between the words. "Curvy" for example, has a positive connotation, but I've heard it used to describe someone who was just overweight, and not fittingly attractive in the sense of the word.

People seem so reluctant to use the word fat they'll say anything to avoid it. Large, bigger, heavy. Even putting a positive spin like curvy.
