A tweet asking for photos of people that weigh more than 200lbs has prompted over 1,800 replies. The original tweet was posted by the account @actuallyjusting. It simply said, “Ok if you weigh over 200lbs drop a pic. I’m trying to see something…”
Ok if you weigh over 200lbs drop a pic. I’m trying to see something…

The photos came flooding in. Many of them were far too NSFW to show here, but here are a few of the less explicit ones.

Queerty reached out to Justin and asked him what exactly he’d been “trying to see”.
“The original intent of ‘trying to see something’ was a bit tongue in cheek,” he admitted. “I just wanted to see bigger bodies just to admire some, but I’m so very pleased with how well it was received.
“It’s been really nice to see how positive everyone has been within the thread. So often queer men are still being held to crazy body standards. And honestly, Twitter reinforces it so often, big muscle daddies or fit jocks get a lot of attention. So it was really nice for a change that all body shapes on the heavier side of the spectrum were getting some love.”

Justin clarified that he also weighed more than 200lbs (“260 myself”), and his preferences weren’t limited to big guys.
“I prefer all shapes and sizes, just wanted to make some space for the heavier folks to feel appreciated.”

As we say, the original tweet has had over 1,800 replies – that’s a lot of big beauty to wade through!

Unfortunately, only if one is hairy, in “doable” shape, and with a large charisma, would one be likely to find playmates. The grossly obese, hairless and little charisma souls would have a much harder time.
Possibly – just an idea – they aren’t looking for a playmate but a relationship. Some people have self worth that extends beyond the physique. I can see you do not have either.
You’re wrong, hater. I’m a morbidly obese hairy superchub and I get laid ALL the time – half the time through Grindr!
Maybe he’s wrong in your area, but I’ve experienced what he’s talking about a lot.
“Thick” means something entirely different in the Anglo world.
If he said drop a picture if you’re over 200 lbs and clean shaven, he’d have trouble getting any responses at all. I miss seeing all the handsome faces on gay men.
Some of the most beautiful men I have seen in a long time. Thanks for the view. Makes me feel exactly how I feel, perfect at 240.
“fat is flavor.”
True in cooking, as well.
Who says husky ( not fat or morbidly obese but husky and muscular) guys can’t be sexy? Too many gay men reject husky guys thinking they’re fat slobs, eat too much and aren’t disciplined.. Too bad for them and are these guys missing out on some awesome guys that just like them are looking for love and being accepted. As someone who came out at 378 lbs. lost weight (almost 200 lbs.so far) over the past 35 years to fit in, I got tired of starving myself, killing myself at the gym yet never seeming to attain the ideal gay image and fit in, whatever that might be. And they say straight people are shallow and superficial. The gay community has the market cornered on shallow and superficial
This is exactly why I try to talk to personal training clients about their goals. It’s healthy to have goals, but Goal Bodies can be toxic if they lead to endless comparison and dissatisfaction.
Instead, I encourage them to have performance related goals, like a new run time/distance, a mobility/flexibility goal, or a weight lifting goal. Focusing on that made exercise consistency better for me, because I could just exercise and be open to the changes in my body, instead of feeling impatient to reach a Goal Body.
We’re all works in progress. That’s why people talk about fitness as a journey now. It doesn’t end at a particular goal, because it doesn’t actually end. You just find new goals.
I was a skinny guy until I was 31 years old. I gained over 150 lbs by the time I was 50 years old. I decided to get healthy for me and no one else. I have lost 65 lbs and I am happy. I still weigh over 200 lbs. I have had an appreciation for stocky men all my life. I prefer a happy & healthy stocky man to a vain svelte egotistical mam any day.
isn’t there a difference between “thick” and fat? for instance, Dwayne Johnson is thick but he is far from fat.
There’s some really good looking guys here. I wouldn’t mind a hook-up with some of them. There is a difference between thick and fat.
