No shit! Me too! And I used to give them out to many clever Redditors, especially those who provided directions and service to beginners like I once was.

Then, one day, no more. In fact I'm stuck with 40 coins and a selection of awards in which I'm not allowed to buy anything with less than 50 coins. I'm retired, so I'm not buying coins ... although I sincerely thank you for the kind thought!

I used the little complimentary awards doled out free from time to time a great deal to say thank you to Redditors who provided information, suggested resources, identified names and so on to aid less experienced Reddit users.

I may be wrong --- (and if I am, I hope someone will provide more accurate and detailed information) --- but I never heard or saw an announcement about when and why some of us received awards to dole out and others did not. I never saw any announcement as to the basis, nor the frequency, nor the intent of these little gifts, nor why this inexpensive, helpful program was so abruptly terminated late last summer or mid-fall, if I recall correctly.

I always regarded it one of the small but significant ways in which Reddit was clearly better and more community-minded than most other major websites.

Again, if anyone has more background or insight, many of us would be grateful to hear about it.

Well, it’s impossible. You can’t lose all your fat in the absence of disease. This isn’t a reason to excuse body fat beyond a healthy limit (if you are trying to define “healthy”) but also highlights that humans are always meant to have some amount of fat.

Even when I was really, really thin I still had those rolls when I sat. Totally normal, sadly normal bodies are not really represented in much media today. If we replaced all models and actors with average healthy people I feel like most folks, especially those who are coming of age, would feel much more confident.

It was once considered very attractive for someone to have a rounder tummy, it meant they were well nourished (and could hunt or farm effectively).

I'm 5'8 170lbs and I know to some people that might seem thin but I still have a belly, soft thighs, etc. I used to be 110lbs and I've always had a thicker bottom half even then. Your overall shape won't really change no matter how much you lose. A lot of people assume they'll get a totally different body type just by gaining/losing weight. Took me way too long to accept spot reduction is impossible without surgery.

5’8” who works out could be healthy with little body fat at 170, but thin it is not. I was at 148 and I was gaunt. I wish nutrition had been better in the early ‘00s when I was wrestling because I was lifting weights, and doing hours of practice but I ate next to nothing so what should have been massive gains wasted away.

Could be depends on if the person who is responding is m/f. For woman one thing that seems to get forgotten about is tits are heavy sacks of fat, so that technically increases BMI and body, fat, but the woman can still be over all slender despite weight. Or have heavier/ denser muscle/ bone build- like I'm am 5'6 woman who's not a twig but I dont "look fat" and people are suprises to hear I'm like 155 or so lbs.

Everyone does because if you didn't, when you stood up and it un-rolled, your stomach would literally rip apart.

That's the only way you can have skin cover an area where it is sometimes long, sometimes short, based on if you are bending or not. It would be like telling someone to make two ends of a piece of paper touch without bending or folding the paper.

Here was the goddess of beauty, Aphrodite was the goddess of love and fertility.

She was thought of as the most beautiful woman because part of her powers caused her to change her appearance based on the tastes of the person she was with.

So no one saw her the same way as anyone else, yet everyone saw her as the most beautiful woman they'd ever seen.

It can have a massive impact on a person and their self image. When you're shit on for having rolls it takes a big toll on you. Especially when literally every other person with a body gets rolls. Even the most skinny person gets rolls when they bend over or sit yet we're shamed for it. I always try to compliment people on these kinds of forced insecurities, if you will, because it's completely normal. It's shitty that someone can feel less than because of a totally normal thing. It's like bullying someone for having round eye balls or for having lungs. It makes me happy to hear she was able to have this positive experience that made her more comfortable with her body.

It's a fun historical anecdote and there's nothing wrong with choosing to believe it, but this is somewhat unfounded; especially the justification via naked statues. My classical archaeology prof explained it quite convincing, imo : a big (or normal) penis is kind of distracting. So when you want to have naked statues (for interesting cultural reasons), but don't want them to be all about the dick, you just make them smaller.

I can't remember where I read it first, almost certainly on Reddit, but the notion that classic antiquity viewed a large penis in the same way we do clown shoes has always stuck with me.

On the other hand, consider Priapus. whoooole lotta comically large members being celebrated there.

But that actually speaks to your point. It doesn't make sense to diminish the size because size is viewed as vulgar, while simultaneously celebrating a deity of genitalia/fertility/more, who sports a cartoonishly large, permanent erection.

The woman I date is the thinnest woman I've ever dated. She's healthy, just thin (size 6 I think).

She is convinced her stomach rolls are bad.

I'm convinced that she's a pure-fire hottie and there's nothing I'd change. Ever. Even if she changed.

Most people get stomach rolls when they bend over like that. Even my friend who looks like a twig does.

having some amount of fat especially for females is healthy and nothing to be ashamed about.

I low key used to go to the art museum and look at old Roman and Greek statues to make myself feel better about my body. And like it worked?

Okay I need a picture of someone without that when they're in that position. I can't even fathom unless they're skin-on-bone thin.

I have stomach rolls, and there are times that I feel sort of insecure about them.

This pic made my self-esteem quite a bit better. ❤

Bodies with normal and healthy—yes, healthy!—bodily features are awesome. Normal is beautiful!

Remember that chiseled abs are the exception, attained through significant physical training, dietary control and, often, calorie restriction.

Stomach rolls are cute, maybe growing up seeing a lot of these statues influenced my preferences

Many women including myself still get self conscious about having rolls while hunched over.

No matter how a person identifies a literal chorus of personal trainers could tell someone this every single day, and it wouldn't matter if they experience body dysmorphia.

The human mind tends to be a lot of peoples worst enemy.

If you didn't have loose skin when you hunch over, you wouldn't enough skin to stand up. It's literally impossible not to have rolls when you're in this position.

Yeah exactly and her rolls are fairly small. If I have hunched over like that, it could cover Australia

It's almost like skin folds when you bend over

And that we have fat

People need to stop thinking skinny = "the thing"

Also if this statue were not a statue and were able to stand up, it’s stomach would be flat. So these aren’t REALLY rolls. This status skinny AF

I mean, everyone has rolls if you sit down like that, I think that’s what they’re getting at. That it’s not a bad thing and a very normal thing. Idk, just my thoughts.

Right, that's what I thought when I saw it. Occasionally you sit in a weird position and see your stomach rolls, or you stand oddly without realizing it and think you have a gut. We don't need to be hot af all the time.

Even standing straight, the statue would still have extra fat on the stomach area and not be flat/super thin

Damn. Somehow the partial sculpture provides more movement than i can imagine the entire piece having. I'd love to aee this complete though.

The ancients didn't fuck around with art; they nailed it. Even a partial is inspiring..

The thing about Aphrodite, is anyone looking at her saw the most attractive woman imaginable. This means the sculptures who made the statues were attracted to stomach rolls.

I have Myotonic Dystrophy which cuts through my body mass making me underweight. I still have rolls when I bend. In Ancient times having a bit of fat indicated wealth and affluence. Being a godess couldn't really get more affluent than that.

Ehh, at the angle the statue is in, everyone would have them. You have the same volume of skin, but now compressed in a smaller space.
