LOL...I saw that and thought the exact same thing: that it's chic now to have a lipo gut. I didn't read the article but I doubt they mention that some of these hipsters might have HIV-related lipo guts?

Well, if the NYT says its hip in Williamsburg, that means its over for me.  If hipsters now have cute little Ralph Kramden guts I'll have to go back to a six-pack!  Remember "Look at this F*cking Hipster"? LOL

Added. But maybe the hipsters got this one correct.  Have you seen GuyswithiPhones?  http://guyswithiphones.com/
Warning - not for under 18!

The uniformity of this display of perfect torsos, by heteros and homos alike, and the narcissism of it all, is rather deadening. 

Most guys around France and Switzerland and Italy are rather slim, have bodies naturally reflecting their age, and its all very relaxing, I find.

My beautiful ex-girlfriend told me after 40, its better if a guy has a little meat on him, seems mature, sexy and solid. 

I'm not sure the beauty of a 23-year old six-packer will ever be usurped by a 23-yo hipster with a beer gut.

Maybe straight guys shouldn't go to seed before 30. And gay guys before 40.  Hows that?

Sooo.  My increasing girth is "in".  But the rest of my lipo body isn't.  Cheeks are sinking,  legs, thighs and arms are getting pretty thin.  Good news is my HIV Doc at the VA Clinic says the VA will pay for injections into my face,  but he said that thats all,  but hey it is a start.

LOL, I saw this yesterday on yahoo's front page and thought of the same thing.  Supposedly it has to be the "right size," not too big to be a beer gut, not too small to blah blah blah... Who the hell comes up with these supposed trends?   Now, why are they calling it the "Ralph Kramden"?

I kinda thought it was a goofy article and don't even think it's a real trend  ::)

You know when they talk about the increasing obesity of American citizens?
well, this is how it starts. with 20- and 30- somethings not even trying to be/stay healthy. In another 5 years all those slightly bulging bellies are gonna be just more of the chubby slobs walking the streets.

it's not a "fashion trend" at all, it's just plain bad health habits.  ;)

Thanks Miss P..... does that mean I can now go out in public with my lipo belly and all of it's glory, and not feel like a POZ-Freak, so I would assume that I look like every other 53 yr old POZ guy.........right?

With all humility my friend, my back would give out if I let my belly get that large.  :)

My lipo belly isn't as bad as I say it is (I'm still a 34 to 36 waist) but, I already have lower back problems, and doing 100 abdominal stomach exercises every other day, isn't as easy, like it used to be, as I've found out, that doing them messes up my lower back even more, Hey, I'm old, I might as well except this as a fact of life now  ???

I have to say the little pot-bellies in that link didn't look so bad to me.  Is that all the bigger a 'lipo-gut' is?  If so I'm not quite so scared - I guess I thought it was supposed to be a real balloon type thing.

Thanks for saying that, Daddy Tim.  Because every time I get out of the shower, I look at my gut and think "geezow."  Unfortunately, for women, having a gut is still not "o.k."   But, whatever.  I guess if people don't like it, then damn it, don't look.

Leave it to us men to say that having a pot belly is in...lol.     I have been in forever, I guess. 

It has been that way for a few years in NYC.  The "cool" parties are all Bearish parties.  I am sure it will be out very soon and waif will be back.
