As the title says, I have watched a couple vids on various Iceberg memes on some subjects, and now I wonder what would make up each tier on a fat fetish iceberg.
I think there are tons of things underpinning fat appreciation, some of them contradictory to each other and particular to each person.
Personally it is a mixture of pleasant character like santa clause and the stigmatization of fat that set up a dichotomy that i had to constantly work over that then became a fixation.
There is stuff like “cuddly appearance” " unafraid of indulgence" “Looks like they know how to enjoy themselves” “Keeps you warm” and such.
I was more meaning via media, but still…
The amazing world of gumball idk why (also I’m a male)
As far as media influences, stuff like the Simpsons, both Homer and the Comicbook guy were eye catchers, there was a bunch of stuff in loony tunes like water inflation and big feasts. Then there was Ralph from the Animaiacs.
basically if it had a fat male character i paid attention to it in some regard.
