Actually, Suhiira is correct. In the past, slenderness was a sign that you had to work hard out doors, and this was a sign of poverty. By contrast, somewhat excessive weight was a sign that you had wealth and didn't need to work to support yourself. It meant you could afford to eat well, and thus, you were "healthier". This is also true of tanned skin. This is why pale skin was considered attractive to the upper crust of society. If you notice paintings of Venus, and other women who were considered very beautiful, they all had significantly more fat than what we consider attractive today, particularly around the hips.lol no.
I'm sure someone in the future will look into the early 21st century, come across tabloids of Lady gaga and go
"See, people with fat crooked noses were movie stars. Therefore crooked nose were considered attractive"
Yeah... sure... for the people who can actually afford those things. Most people are probably not going to be able to afford it. The player character however... they might be able to afford it... since player characters in games tend to be in one way or another the unusual people, because they don't tend to do what most people would... aka, get a low paying, mostly "risk free", type of job to try and get by from day to day.Sydanyo;n9393441 said:In a world where internal organs can be replaced with either new biological ones, or with ones that are bioware or cyberware, where nanotechnology exists and nanites can repair damage, and where cosmetic surgery is ubiquitous, not to mention with added technologies in 2077 such as the 2077 version of CRISPR and the like, overweight people and downright obesity will be, quite literally, a thing of the past.
Unless one chooses that, of course.
WalteriusMaximus;n9424701 said:Obesity isn't exactly an ideal to strive towards. However, within context, some characters have been portrayed as obese or overweight. Take Bloody Baron and Dijkstra in TW3 for example. It wasn't a case of endorsing obesity (no one should ever endorse it) but it was appropriate to depict those characters in that way.

There are a small number of people that actually find being overweight attractive however.WalteriusMaximus;n9432351 said:It's like how in the Matrix movie, people project an image of themselves in the Matrix. All of them are an improved version of themselves, without exception.
