This guy's 15 reasons to date a 'bigger woman' will seriously outrage you by SheKnows Jun 27, at 7: You'd think it would be hard to offend all fat women, thin women and every man who's not a douchebag and yet Jim Hogue's recent article for The Richest, " 15 Thoughts Every Guy Has When Dating a Bigger Woman ," manages to do exactly that! In an attempt to be brutally honest, Hogue lays out all the reasons why a man who presumably is not fat would ever date a lady of size.
Sure, one of his 15 points is "some men think fat women are beautiful" but the other 14 are dedicated to tired stereotypes basically boiling down to Fattie McFatterson is super into food and will do anything to please a man because she's desperate.
Well, I'd say he better be pretty tough, if only to survive all the punches to the gut he gets when he says loudly that he's only into "fit girls who take care of themselves. By that logic, bigger dudes should be 5-star Michelin chefs. Honey, I expect a 5-course gourmet meal by six tonight, kthx. He doesn't want to feel shamed for eating a big greasy pie and skinny girls are harpies who berate pizza-eaters.
And also fat girls don't like salads. But hey, what's good for the goose is good for the gander, right? Oh except most guys don't worry about calories anyhow because society doesn't fat shame men on nearly the same level it does women.
It's true but while Hogue seems baffled by this fact, I'd take it a step further: People are attracted to all kinds of body types, and this is not something weird or surprising. It's also not something to be super proud about. Fat or thin, it's not an honor to give you a boner, Hogue. So I suppose the same goes for larger men? According to Hogue they're always down to eat anything you want to eat and have no culinary preferences of their own.
Where's Meghan Trainor to write a song when I need one? Rather, he thinks fat women never workout so they'll think anything you do at the gym is amazing and will follow you around like a puppy. Confidence booster for him, I guess? But hey, that must mean that women dating fat men get a similar privilege, right? Hogue says a guy will never have to be jealous of all the man-stares his large lady is getting because no one else will ever want her. Telling someone they have to stay with you because you are the only one who will ever love them is a tactic employed by abusers.
No woman or man should ever have to hear that. Maybe you haven't heard! Oh yes you have because it's the oldest stereotype in the book! I know that sounds really bad. But it is true," he writes, proving that he clearly does not get it and it does more than "sound" bad. But hey, by that logic fat men should also be eager to please! Oh, except they're not, because men are still valued by society more for their status and earning potential than their looks which is problematic in its own right, actually.
How many ways is he going to say this?
