I was at a Moroccan restaurant last week and they had dancers from a belly dancing school performing. Some of the women were 300 pounds!!@! It appeared that the families and friends of the dancers were dining, so the restuarant was making money. I won’t scare you with the details; I had to stare at my plate until I could get out of there.
After seeing that I decided I had to do something!
Its great to slander fat women; they make me sick, and I can’t stand to look at them. They are so common now and they are encouraged and empowered to assert themselves in public. We have to stop this cultural change to Fat acceptance.
We need to think of ways to discourage fat acceptance. We need to not just insult them, but also persuade them if possible. Lets turn the tide on the fatties. It may be a losing battle, but we have to do something.
I’m starting with my own social media. I’m using the following gentle but effective warning in my online profiles. Its gentle so they will read it and think about it instead of becoming immediately defensive. It also does a fair job of getting them to self select instead of wasting my time. I don’t care if I lose some who are “offended” at my discrimination. In fact I find that the slender ones like that I am so up front and that I have clear standards.
“I say this in the nicest way: please do not contact me if you are overweight. You need to look good in a bathing suit. If we are compatible, we will spend some active time together, including swimming at beautiful tropical beaches :_) I’m not seeking a twig figure; proportionate curves are beautiful!”
I urge everyone to add something similar to all your profiles!
