"Lipophilia or fat fetishism, also called, and more elegantly expressed, as lipophilia involves the experience of fat, fat body parts, "fat pads" (Corpus adiposum), or just "fatness" as extremely sexually arousing and fulfilling.

 

DSM - V clasifies lipophilia as a type of a paraphilia (lit., "beyond," [para] "love," [philia]), suggesting that the arousal is not rooted in loving friendship (philia) because it involves objectification (focusing on the "object" of the body, rather than the soul of the person). The criticism of "objectification" is unfair because it is equally possible – if not easier for most people -- to objectify the body of a skinny person, thin person, or "buff" person, “as it is to objectify the body of a fat person. The objectification of "fatness," leads lipophilia to be known colloquially as "fat fetishism," even though technically DSM-V does not literally classify lipophila as a "fetish," but rather as a paraphilia.

 

Lipophiliacs maintain an obsession with what is called corpos adiposum or "Fat pads," areas of body fat that are plump, sizeable, soft, and round. Thus the term "fat pads" describes the focus of the lipophiliac's obsession.

 

Lipophiliacs can be rhapsodic and highly aroused about fatness, roundness, softness, and large size of their partner's bodies, and, as well, the "folds" of fat (pannus) of their partners' bodies. Lipophiliacs may also of course be attracted to many of the fat people they encounter in every day settings and situations toward whom they experience significant attraction by virtue of these persons' fatness, size, roundness, and softness.

I have always had a problem with the word "fetish" when it is used to describe our proclivities.

"Fetish" is usually reserved to describe a sexual attachment to an object;  my FAism has always involved girls who I was attracted to gaining weight or struggling with being huge or in general being encased in fat of their own making.

I have never been attracted to a pile of blubber sans person nor have I been turned on by the various oils and shortenings to be found in the kitchen.

Most importantly, I believe I would not be attracted to a fat corpse, no matter how beautiful in life it may have been.

My FAism and my Feederism are about a sexual preference for a large partner and that preference or attraction is greatly magnified through personal relationship.

I don't get hot over some rendered fat in a lab basin or scraps of tallow on the bench of the local butcher.

It's all about the person, not an object, and I think it's about time that we stand up to being so poorly defined by those who do not understand this subject.

Even true FA's and Feedees use the unfortunate term "fetish",  not knowing the definition.

It's about a woman (in my case), not a pair of panties or some high healed shoes.

Cue the Announcer: --------------------4,3,2,1.............

"This Sunday, thousands of lipophiliacs will be going door-to-door selling fiber rich wood chip cookies to raise money for the International Lipophiliac Foundation.

Please give generously, so that these fat-heads can return to a normal life someday. Thank-you."

Attraction to something typically nonsexual is one definition though, like a foot fetish.  Roleplay with a fat suit could be fun.  Based on the link it looks like it can be used interchangeably with paraphilia.

People do make this a dealbreaker, as though weight gain or loss is more important than debt, transparency, respectfulness, and free communication.

Though your imagery cracks me up; I think of Family Guy.

The word “fetish”, like so many in the English language, has multiple meanings depending on context. In the clinical DSM sense, if you were talking to a psychologist about how your attraction to fat women was causing you emotional distress then it would be correct to use the term paraphilia rather than fetish. But in the colloquial sense, like if you were talking with your partner about your kinks in bed, fetish can pretty much mean “anything there is a special category for on pornhub”.

Sometimes, Brie Larson's tweets and demeanor causes mesome vivacious emotional distress: have I a paraphilia oriented over utter nonsense??

 

It's a joke. Your point was excellent.
