Throwing back to this gem of an infographic — which is the very definition of fat shaming — by The Modern Man.
It’s titled 10 Reasons Why Men Don’t Find Fat Women Attractive and has some superb body shaming revelations like:
- She looks like “used goods”
- She lowers a man’s social status
- Her diet costs a lot of money
- She would likely be a selfish relationship partner
- She is probably lazy
- She doesn’t have the entire package that men look for in a woman
Now, I have been known to tip the scales a bit on the wrong side but exactly how does that make me “selfish”?
And what about the fact that “fat” issues are not always about what you eat but oftentimes due to medical reasons such as thyroid imbalances, hormonal fluctuations, polycystic ovaries, certain kinds of medication… I could go on and on and on and on.
And don’t even get me started on things like “used goods” and “social status”.
Really? Do I need to even expound on these further or are they just self-explanatorily DISGUSTING?
I think this body shaming infographic is not just offensive to fat women but actually to all women in general.
In fact, I think it’s even offensive to men because seriously, what would you think about a man who subscribes to this school of thought? And do all men really think like this?
Please weigh in on the issue in the comments box… do you find this infographic offensive? Or is it merely stating the truth?
In the meantime, please excuse me while I go lower my husband’s social status by a few notches. And have him spend all his money on my diet (incidentally, if a woman is thin, would you just assume that she spends all her husband’s money on gym classes?).
After all, the idiot deserves it for still staying with me… right?
