Obviously the latter. Since the former would require at least the smallest ability to make distinctions, but the latter only require base appetites.

There's a kind of tawdry, unarticulated psychoanalysis here. For example, where is it demonstrated that a taste for fleshy females is accompanied by a streak of cruelty? Maybe men who like skinny women are equally cruel. It is also a flagrant anachronism not to see that this more "Rubenesque" ideal was not considered exceptional in its time. I think it's the author who has issues with weighty women, sex, and violence, not Rubens.
