"But what’s interesting is the woman on the right who appears to be part of this group, yet she looks Indian. Why would these fat women from the Midwest be hanging out with an Indian girl?"

Probably just a whitey who tans and uses thick makeup. I see lots of that in northern Va.

Also, look at the whites on Jersey Shore .. they tan so much they can look Hispanic or some other type of non-white.

Rosie O'Grady's is very tourist-oriented. Not to say that city residents never go there, but it's hardly the norm. As a result, I would surmise that all of the people seen at the outside tables in the first picture, including the man with his blonde daughter, are tourists. While they may be tourists, however, the three people in the foreground of the first picture probably aren't from the Midwest. It's more likely that they are suburban day-trippers. There is no shortage of overweight people in the 'burbs, though come to think of it of the three people only the woman facing the camera is clearly overweight.

The younger woman on the right in the second photo does not really look Indian to me, though you may have gotten a better and more definitive view. Even though I don't have a full view there's something about her face that doesn't seem Indian. Her dress looks like an Indian-ish style, but I'm sure that women of all ethnicities might wear something like that. Mostly, though, I dislike the second photo because it holds the two overweight women up to ridicule. A bit on the cruel side, if I may say.

Her sunglasses make it hard to be sure, but I would guess that the hot chick in the third picture is Asian.

Quote: "Unlike the people in the previous photos, she clearly lives in Manhattan or maybe the SWPL parts of Brooklyn, and is not a tourist."

She looks kind of Hispanic to me.

Beautiful girl?

Pfft. . .

6/10 racially ambiguous butter face. Wouldn't bang.

By all means, feel free to post street photos of attractive women; they're nice to look at and who cares if people think you're a pervert. We're all perverts. It's just that some people have trouble admitting it.

The attractive woman in the third photo is definitely not Asian, or at least not purebred. Check out the shape of the nose. I would guess hispanic.

Sexy, in a Jaggeresque sort of way, but I suspect she won't age well.

How do you know they are Midwestern tourists and not Southerners, as for the third woman she might just be a swarthy white (found everywhere, but particularly in Southern Europe) or an mixed blood American Indian.

Maybe the fat women in the second picture are asking the Indian woman for directions.

@Bernie

I think she's wearing an Indian style dress, Half Sigma saw the whole thing that's why it's easier for him to say.

"How do you know they are Midwestern tourists and not Southerners"

We were in rural Pennsylvania the other week, and the local yokels were all fatter than hogs. Prole fatness is everywhere, not just the South and Midwest!

"Another element in this photo that I like is the man sitting down in the middle, two tables back, with a little blonde girl standing up next to him who is presumably his daughter. They obviously live in Manhattan. "

mmmm that looks like a >16onz iced coffee drink on their table. I'm surprised Bloomy doesnt take the girl away.

"The attractive woman in the third photo is definitely not Asian, or at least not purebred. Check out the shape of the nose. I would guess Hispanic."

Could be.
One thing I've noticed is that with younger women the Asian/Hispanic distinction is not always immediately apparent. In other words, on first glace it can be difficult to tell whether a younger woman is Asian or Hispanic, though usually it soon becomes clear enough. With women over about 30 or so, and with males of any age, there's seldom if ever any similar confusion.

I would guess that the man and the girl in the first pic are European tourists. I have a hard time believing that anyone who lives in Manhattan would let themselves be seen eating at a Times Square tourist trap.

I agree that the fat people are from the Midwest. I work in Manhattan and I see people who look and dress like this all the time. Almost always, they are tourists from the Midwest.

The girl in the last pic is definitely cute.

Peeve: Basement dwelling losers who get off on pretending online that any girl less than a 10 is below their standards.

"6/10 racially ambiguous butter face. Wouldn't bang"

This reminds me of the rather heated debate regarding which of Jon Huntsman's daughters was or was not hot enough to bang. For the sake of those of us who enjoy intelligent conversation, would you mind abandoning this forum in favor of one in which your alpha-male bullshit is welcome? Please and thank you.

"Maybe the fat women in the second picture are asking the Indian woman for directions."

I would guess the other way around. If the Indian lady is a tourist, she probably wouldn't know that obesity is atypical of Manhattan; and, she could very well know that most Americans are obese.

Photo 1: The man with the "I ❤ NY" shirt deep in the background is probably not from the US. Men in this country don't wear shorts that high above the knee.

Photo 2: I think the lady in the blue Indian outfit is Indian, and is not with the two fat ladies. I think she is waiting for someone near the "Taste of Bombay" restaurant.

Photo 3: I don't know or care about her ethnic identity; she is hot. She has her purse in front of her protected by her left arm. This means she is not a tourist, and knows that she needs to be aware of pickpockets and purse snatchers while walking by a sightseeing bus.

Peter,

You need to research more before posting any of your ignorant statements. It started with your statement about Mr. Rossler being an alpha male and now your take on Asian and Hispanic women, both groups who look very vastly different from each other, unless the Hispanic has a strong native look. But even so, they are very different in looks.

Europe particulary Germany and the Southern regions are more socially progressive than Anglo and Nordic countries. The latter 2 regions promotes multiracialism, but also believes in racial segregation instead of integration. The fact that Mr. Rossler is able to be in that position has really nothing to do with alpha like qualities, but of social conditions. If you want to say America produces a lot of beta males, than I'm for it because of our social engineering to emasculate men, and the reverse for women.

Perhaps she's da daughter of Rosie O'Grady, a regular old-fashioned goil...

It's not just her features, but what she's wearing that makes her look Indian. Maybe she's giving directions or medical advice.

Half, what I've criticized you for is not (just) being pervy, but photos in which people's faces are clearly visible when you seem to be inviting ridicule of them. Can't you at least blur their eyes or something?

@ just speculating:
Check for yourself. There IS some degree of overlap in looks, albeit limited, between young Hispanic women (mestizo Hispanic, not mulatto Hispanic) and young Asian women. I'm basing this on real-life observations.

the last girl has BJ lips, but outside of that, she's nothing special. her hips, from this camera angle at any rate, look ridiculously narrow, which means she is masculinized. she'd probably be good to go on the first date.

of course, she's a downright supermodel compared to the heifers slurping away at the 124oz watering hole.

as for the perv accusations, that's just the ineffectual whining of feminists who despise normal male desire. their bleatings are the whitenoise of losers.

Do I sense some beta female rage in this statement? In any case I agree. Although I'd blame it more on porn than anything else.

@ sabril

I'd like to add that women also have ridiculous standards online. If you're a male online dating is a hell hole unless you're tall, handsome, athletic, between the ages of 18-28, and making six figures or more. Yet I know chicks aren't dating guys like that.

If you enlarge the page via CTRL+ it becomes apparent that the girl in the third photo is wearing very long dangling earrings. Asian women don't seem to go in for ostentatious jewelry too much, so that tends to support the idea that she's Hispanic.
She is carrying a hat in front of her purse. I'm not sure what the brown satin-y loop is supposed to be, an elasticized band to keep the hat in place?

I never knew there was such a thing as blog elitism until today. Young men and prole commentators aren't welcome at high society blogs. We're the riffraff and hooligans of the alt-right.

The discussion of the third picture needs to decide whether Filipinos are Asian or not. She actually looks Filipino based upon face, jewelry, and fashion.

Beautiful women are great, but entire discussions essentially dedicated to "man how hawt is dis chick?" always lower the level of discourse. Maybe that is his justifiable concern.

Peter,

Again, you are running your mouth full with ignorance. I assume when you are referring to Mulatto Hispanics, you are talking about the Dominicans and Puerto Ricans, many of whom have strains of African ancestry of various degrees that Mestizo Mexicans, Central and South Americans don't have. And the girl in the picture above that everyone is talking about could be of Dominican or Puerto Rican Hispanic just by judging on her looks. She wouldn't be out of place in neighborhoods such as Spanish Harlem or Washington Heights. You know the deal, those Caribbean Latinos with black influences whether it's in their genes, or in a cultural sense. Or maybe you don't?

You say she looks Asian because you are probably a biased Southern Chinese guy with Afro-Australoid features that most Northern Chinese, Koreans and Japanese don't have. Many Latinos have Afro-Australoid features such as flat noses and big lips whether they are from the Caribbean or the Americas.

Yeah, they must be from the midwest, thank god I dont see fat white people everywhere here on the west coast. You really are a walking, typing, picture taking stereotype of a NYC elitist.

Peter must be from some place like Mobile where there are no asians. You'll never see an asian with an upturned nose like the chick in the 3rd. That's a classic SWPL. Great-looking I agree, but she's been through so many female empowerment seminars that she'll probably never have an orgasm and will never realize why.

If you lived in L.A. you'd recognize the plump woman in the blue dress immediately as Persian. Due to her dark skin hue, I'd say from the Mashad region, i.e. southwestern Iran.

"Do I sense some beta female rage in this statement? "

Lol, I'm a man.

I do agree that there are a lot of girls online who have ridiculously high standards. But it's a different phenomenon. The men who slam pretty girls as being below their standards are just posing. In reality, they would jump for joy at the opportunity to kiss the feet of such a girl.

The girls who claim to have high standards really do, at least if they are considering an online dating profile.


These, are the kinds of posts about Important Subjects that lead me to believe blogging
ultimately ends up no more impactive

"I never knew there was such a thing as blog elitism until today. Young men and prole commentators aren't welcome at high society blogs. We're the riffraff and hooligans of the alt-right".

One thing I admire about Prole Whites is their "no holds barred" when it comes to NAM troublemakers. Because they don't care about the soft yielding, yet hypocritical, pc left wing ideology of their wealthier SWPL counterparts, they are not afraid to be on the offensive if NAMs should cross them. There is a reason why NAMs would be reluctant to cause trouble among the working class Italians, Irish and their likes.

"You say she looks Asian because you are probably a biased Southern Chinese guy with Afro-Australoid features that most Northern Chinese, Koreans and Japanese don't have."

I can assure you that I am not Southern Chinese. Or any sort of Chinese. I am 100% white American.

"Peter must be from some place like Mobile where there are no asians. You'll never see an asian with an upturned nose like the chick in the 3rd."

Nope. Originally from Connecticut, on Long Island for the past 15 years. I've known plenty of Asians (and even dated one years ago).

What I meant was, he is not here to discuss anything worthwhile. That is, he is essentially trying to tell us "Look, I have higher standards for FLH sex than you all do, which means I am more alpha than you all."

To quote Half Sigma, "[T]he purpose of this blog is to have a discussion of like-minded intelligent readers."

http://www.halfsigma.com/2012/03/too-many-people-are-visiting-this-blog.html

This is Half Sigma's blog, and his rules are the rules, but I will say this: I would hate to see this forum of intelligent and like minded readers depose to a mindless squabble about who is the most alpha.

"How do you know they are Midwestern tourists and not Southerners" - Brutus

I think Sig got it right when he said the large women in #2 were from the Midwest. Not because they're overweight -- there are plenty of overweight people in the South -- but they just don't look Southern in the face. The older woman looks German.

Helene,

If you were from the midwest, many people would think that the woman in the blue dress in a native American. People from Texas would just decide that she is a Mexican.

Dark hair and darken complexion can mean many things. People also forget that the time outside will make anyone form a scandanavian to a subsaharan African darker.

"People from Texas would just decide that she is a Mexican."

I agree Texans are quite parochial. They seem to consider persons of Italian background to be exotic.

Eating from McDonald's is not being "fed well", as it's nutritionally deficient while being full of harmful additives. Also, "fancy" is an endearingly quaint word that someone from the Midwest would use.

Paul Fussell mentioned how proles, despite looking like losers, always have a way of winning somehow. Notice how the fat acceptance movement tries making society accommodate it with demands for larger seats while they could at least try improving their diet and exercise. I know the government subsidizes big agribusinesses that manufacture high fructose corn syrup, but there are alternatives if they know where to look. Also, making time to exercise is important, and setting the alarm for 4 AM may do well (for running outside men only, and women with a workout partner).

Improvement follows a law stating that the better one becomes at something the harder it is to improve, and if they hit a weight loss wall then they should start seeking horizontal improvement (diversifying their workout and making further dietary changes). The Lorentz Factor, which proves that mass increases the closer one gets to the speed of light, can also be used as a metaphor for improvement. It is why Olympic sprinters shaving a 1/10th of a second off their time expends far more time, effort and energy than someone going from 25 seconds to a 20-second time.

In other words, fat people, who it goes without saying are in poor shape, with relatively little effort could become at least average, and a reasonable enough more effort to become good after that.

Superdestroyer, I don't mean to be rude, but you really are out to lunch calling that chick Filipina. I happen to be from Manila-annex, i.e. Daly City, CA, and there are no filipinos with skin that light. Also, the wearing of sunglasses seems to be somewhat unusual among filipinas. Third wave feminism didn't much penetrate that community, and those girls seem to understand that their smiling eyes are their best feature. Just saying.

department11

I lived in Hawaii for several years and if that woman was at Oahu, everyone would assume that she was Filipino until they learned otherwise.

the tranny look has always been big with Filipino women.

The woman in the 2nd picture from the top, wearing the pink shirt, looks a lot like Heidi Beicrach, of SPLC infamy.

Peter, have you ever even been to Asia? There is enormous variation in how "Asians" look. She could be anything from Southern Chinese to Cambodian/Khmer.

The second woman could be Indian, she could also be another sort of South Asian or even someone from the Near East. India is hugely diverse, with 3 core population groups.

@SlavaPyc

You said:"There is enormous variation in how "Asians" look. She could be anything from Southern Chinese to Cambodian/Khmer".

You are correct. I was the one who said she has Afro-Australoid features which are found in Latin American populations and people of Southeast Asia.

East Asians especially the Chinese have features that range from Mongoloid, Medish types to Afro-Australoid. The better looking Japanese seem to have "Caucasoid" features.

Mongoloids are a very diverse race. I was born in a Mongoloid-Caucasoid hybrid country, but I am a Slavic Russian-- although I have been mistaken for WASP American. People without any background in anthropology should refrain from making any assumptions about racial typology.

"Mongoloids are a very diverse race. I was born in a Mongoloid-Caucasoid hybrid country, but I am a Slavic Russian-- although I have been mistaken for WASP American. People without any background in anthropology should refrain from making any assumptions about racial typology".

Yes, and a lot of Mongoloids don't look "Mongoloid". I can't say about the genetic findings, but I can say that Mongoloids aren't one phenotype. The Chinese have absorbed many kinds of people, including some Middle Eastern and European populations. Some of the Japanese seem to have a Caucasian admixture, although genetic tests show the Japanese being pure descendants of Mongoloids from other parts of Asia.

I may add that, although she’s on the voluptuous side, she’s quite attractive.

"Voluptuous"? Come on... I really think that, perhaps in response to the ridiculous amount of fat ubiquitous in America, American ideals about weight have shifted too far in the ridiculous other direction. I'm glad you didn't say she was "fat". The other two are fat - heinously, awfully so. This girl is not. She is pretty much what I consider a perfect body type, unlike the girl on the bottom who is too thin.
