Petition for modified listing of BODACIOUS in Dictionary

For years Plus Size men and women have been discriminated against. There is constant bombardment from the media and the fashion industry to be stick thin. BODacious.TK is trying to change society's perception of full figured people. The plus size community is not ugly, lazy or stupid; as what is portrayed by today's media. Our goal is to change the view of the world about our under represented plus size community.

Our first step in doing this is attempting to put an modified meaning of the word bodacious in the Webster's dictionary. We believe full figured people should have size positive words that represent them instead of the negativity that surrounds the community today.

This petition stands up for plus size rights by encouraging a positive spin in describing a fat person. If you would like to support our cause, please sign this petition, because it's not only our petition, it's yours.

Petition for an additional meaning of bodacious to be listed officially in the US Merriam Webster dictionary as a descriptive word for 'sexy fuller-figured person'.

We would like to include an additional definition of "bodacious" to be listed as a descriptive word. The adjectives sexy and voluptuous are there but voluptuous just means full. Where is fat or fuller figured? Bodacious means and represents the sexy fuller-figured person, man or woman, and this definition should be added to the dictionary.

Word: bodacious
Function: adjective
Etymology: probably blend of bold and audacious
Date: 1832

In the dictionary bodacious means;

1. Remarkable; prodigious.
2. Audacious; gutsy.
adv.
1. Completely; extremely.
2. Audaciously; boldly sexy and voluptuous

We wish to include:

1. Descriptive of a sexy, full-figured person; or something of that nature.

So please sign your name and be counted and let's hit our mark and try to make it official.

Thank you for your anticipated support.






The word bodacious is not currently in the dictionary as a descriptive noun. Yeah, the adjectives sexy and voluptuous are but voluptuous just means full. Where is fat or fuller figured? Bodacious means and represents the sexy fuller-figured person, man or woman, and this definition should be added to the dictionary.







Thank you for your anticipated support
