Plus size men aren’t attracted to overweight women.

"You bodyshaming misogynist!"


AST_PEENG

Yeah we know, but at least we don't go around crying "body shaming" to fit women l, we instead try to change our lives or work within our means.

Pot belly calling the kettle fat.


imyourforte

I love a wreck from potbelly.


brokebackzac

People are allowed to like and not like whatever, it's when they get mad at people for hypocritical reasons that there's a problem. This seems like it could be one of those times.


onehandedbraunlocker

I think its also the reporter who wrote this that is a source of anger, since he described fat women as "plus sized" and fat men as "overweight".. double standards, double standards everywhere..


[deleted]

But do we particularly care what this reporter thinks? Is it really noteworthy?


onehandedbraunlocker

I thought that's what the Internet does? Cares about things not worthy to care about?


[deleted]

What's hypocritical about one's likes? Do fat people always have to like fat people? Do skinny people have to like skinny people? I don't understand. I happen to be a short guy who likes tall women. Is that hypocritical of me?


onehandedbraunlocker

That fat women get called "plus sized" and fat men get called "overweight".. is that really so hard to see?


PinocchiosWoodBalls

No. Nobody chooses what he or she likes. It becomes pathetic when you start to complain about it. Like in your case, when you think there is a conspiracy and that women who like tall men are in the wrong and should date short men, even though they don’t want to. And to be honest, that’s daily here.


brokebackzac

It's only hypocritical if an overweight person is constantly turning down overweight people and then getting pissed off that skinny people don't want to date them and claim that they are being fatshamed. For example, I'm a rather femme gay man. I don't particularly enjoy being around other femmes in a dating sense. It is then hypocritical for me to get mad at more masc gays who don't jive with me because I'm too femme for them. I need to either get over my shot or take what I can get. I cannot control being as femme as I am the same way some people cannot control being overweight. I also cannot control who likes the fact that I am femme the same that someone who is overweight cannot control whether or not a skinny person or someone they find attractive is into their body type. It's hypocritical to expect people to change things they cannot control (or even choose not to control in some cases) and expect them to accept you as you are.

The pot belly calling the kettle fat?


[deleted]

That's actually a pretty divisive line. Are you familiar with the most accepted origin of that black/kettle bit?


stealthymous

The origin of this saying has nothing to do with degrading POC, if that’s what you are trying to say. It originates in mid-17th century Spanish and refers exactly to the nature of fires to deposit soot equally on both the kettle and the pot.


[deleted]

And the swastika used to mean peace and love... until it didn't.


stealthymous

Don’t go looking for false indignation. There are plenty of tropes and symbols of hate to fight against.


[deleted]

Okay


AnimusFlux

I did a couple of Google searches a found [this article](https://slate.com/human-interest/2014/12/the-pot-calling-the-kettle-black-is-the-idiom-offensive-racist-or-fair-game.html) which suggests it's not offensive? [The Wikipedia article](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_pot_calling_the_kettle_black) says something about Don Quixote, but that's about it. Care to share why we should be getting rid of this \~400-year old saying to avoid offending anyone? Or is your comment a fun bit of satire? I'm unclear.


[deleted]

I'm telling you how a lot of people feel about it. If you want to disagree or don't care, that's your right buddy.


AnimusFlux

You haven't actually told me anything...


[deleted]

Okay


AnimusFlux

>Are you familiar with the most accepted origin of that black/kettle bit? So you're not going to share what you're even talk about and just be condescending? Neat.


[deleted]

I'm condescending because you can't comprehend a yes or no question? Seems excessive but get after it man. Get that karma up.


HighFlyerJ

This isn't about feelings, it's about fact. Last time I checked, feelings, like opinions, don't stand up to facts.


Bushido-Rockabilly

BASED. *Insert illegal clapping emojis*


[deleted]

A lot of people feel a lot of ways, doesn't really make it noteworthy


HighFlyerJ

Found the racist. If you didn't look exclusively for racism in your life, you'd be far less worried about it. Get it out of your mind, completely forget it, and I guarantee you'll be less miserable.


alphagoku1

I hate to be the one to burst your bubble. But that's just not true. Shunning the very idea of racism does not magically make its very real existence just disappear. Changing outlook does help with mood though, but being called all kinds of monkeys, apes and n****rs because i "sound black" by kids and adults alike, from America and Canada and numerous other places while playing a video game is sure to remind anyone that racism just won't go and die off

marie-llama

She doesn't have to be attracted to everyone. As long as she's not bitching about being single while having standards that are out of her league. I bet that plenty of skinny men want to be with her. Some people actually prefer fat people.


Revenge_best_served

Nobody prefers fat people! One goes for fat people when they cannot get normal weight people, fat women are easier to bed because of low self worth, but Nobody prefers them, because fat isn't sexy nor healthy. The only skinny men who want to be with her are most likely broke or extremely homely.


marie-llama

Not everyone has your taste. I've been turned down for being "too skinny" by a man who's now engaged to a very obese woman. And yes, he's fit. A co-worker of mine who's skinny told me he prefers very fat women, and I've seen his wife, he wasn't lying. Sure, fat people aren't conventionally attractive. But it doesn't mean no one is attracted to them.


Warazat-_-

I also like pillows you know


Revenge_best_served

Well that may say more about you than what he prefers, are you difficult to get along with or do you bring lots of drama to a relationship? So is your coworker homely,.and does he make a substantial income, because these factors will probably tell us why he's with obese women.


BadKidGames

Bro... People like different shit. You act like you understand everyone else. You're just being an arrogant prick tbh


Revenge_best_served

Yeah i know people like different shit, but its usually broke dudes who are the ones who settle for these women. Did I hurt your feelings over fat women ? Jeezus dude take a chill pill.


BadKidGames

Lol what. You act like you're 14. "Did I hurt your feelings?"... 😆


Revenge_best_served

I have no feelings to hurt. This is just pure fun for me.


BadKidGames

That's sad


panzerbjrn

Different people like different things. I'm pretty sure you like things which I could ignorantly label as "broken"...


Revenge_best_served

Thin, hot ,childless that usually wear little to no makeup is my preference, Go ahead call these broken


[deleted]

While I think your overgeneralization is largely true, there are some people who prefer overweight people. I don't particularly understand it but to say everybody is exactly the same in their likes is a bit ridiculous


Revenge_best_served

Are we talking about 20 -30 lbs chucky on a woman or are you talking a 300-600 lbs huge you can't lift and might throw out your back kinda woman?


Bushido-Rockabilly

I know a few chubby chasers that are pretty well off and decent looking guys, man. Some dudes are just into big gals. And that’s totally okay. What does it matter to you.


Revenge_best_served

Like I said they are easier to bed, some like no challenge and just need a quick nut, and there's nothing wrong with easier. But your talking chubby not like 300-600 lbs massively obese ladies.


Bushido-Rockabilly

Well my buddy Sean’s wife was definitely 300+ when they got together and now they’ve got 3.5 kids. He was my personal trainer and that’s how he and I met. So...things seem to be going well for them. They’re happy and doing the whole life together thing.


Revenge_best_served

Is she still 300 lbs plus ? Cuz you said she was meaning she no longer is. And was he obese when he got with her?


Bushido-Rockabilly

Well she’s on her 4th kid with him, so she’s pretty big. I mean, she’s not *lost* any weight in the past 7 years. Sean weighs less than I do, for sure. He’s probably around 160. Has been about the same size since I’ve known him(about 12 years). I don’t think I’ve ever seen him over 180ish. He bulks every winter just like every other fitness nut out there. But yeah he’s probably 6’1 and steadily between 160-180. They got together after I met him. But I know other dudes that are into big women too. Not just Sean. I think you’re just looking down a real narrow scope, man.


Revenge_best_served

Of course there's always these outliers but the vast majority of men don't like these women, and only settle because of economics , homeliness or broken self worth.


Bushido-Rockabilly

I disagree but alright man.


Revenge_best_served

Ok dude , I can respect you disagreeing with me.


Rystr

r/immobile This is a sub for people attracted to people so fat they literally can't move themselves


Revenge_best_served

That's just people with a mental illness there is nothing normal about them.


Acceptable_Policy_51

You'd be very surprised.


the_simurgh

my half brother has never dated a woman with a waistline. i call him the herdsman because every woman he's dated is around like 200 lbs or so.


Revenge_best_served

Are these women tall but outta shape, or like 5'1" 200lbs shepre with their own gravity?


the_simurgh

5'1 or 5'2ish 180 lbs kinda girls


Revenge_best_served

Woah that's a yikes. Does he have the ability to date women who are in shape or is this the best he can do? cuz most men with a higher income bracket usually do go for this type of woman.


the_simurgh

he likes fat chicks. he's a serial con man who lives off my elderly grandmother or the women he dates. he ain't got no money of his own.


Revenge_best_served

Like I said that explains a lot. He doesn't like them it's all he can get. If he made a moderately good income and wasn't a degenerate he would not slum it with these women . You just made may point.


the_simurgh

no your not getting it, he has a fetish for fat women. he exclusively chases heaver women. he could get thinner or more attractive women but he exclusively dates fat women.


Revenge_best_served

I bet good money if tomorrow he won the lottery he would no longer have that festish. Its most likely his economic status and con-man ways that leave him chasing fat women.


Catinthemirror

I'm a plus size and I prefer my men plus sized as well. Sounds like a biased article.


Logical-Signature541

Bbw have the best 📦


onehandedbraunlocker

YOU get double standards and YOU get double standards and YOU get double standards!


baloonatic

People like healthy bodies who knew


CaineRexEverything

People are attracted to who they’re attracted to. There’d be lots of plus sized people attracted to other plus sized people, but that doesn’t fit the narrative of that article so not mentioned. *NOBODY* should be called out for who they’re attracted to. They have every right to have standards, or particular tastes. The only time it should be called out, criticised, demonised is when they’re attracted to minors. There’s no justifying that bullshit.


Warazat-_-

You should probably call them out if they are attracted to animals or dead people too maybe


Suihnennews

Amen... 🙏 this upper class bullshit. You can't force attraction


[deleted]

It's only when they act on that attraction because to say it's okay to be attracted to a person who is 18 years and 0 days old but not attracted to someone who is 17 years and 364 days old is a bit ridiculous


Joker1485

Men are husky,stout or power banks. Women are all those goofy ass names..


Informal_Rope_2559

It's almost as if they have minds of their own...


UskaPickica11

Fat women want to fuck fit, muscly guys. Hence, they never have sex.


[deleted]

That's their choice. Just like if I refuse to drive anything but a Lamborghini and I can't afford a Lamborghini I guess I'll be walking a whole lot


big_scoe

this used to happen to me in GTA a lot. I'd refuse to carjack the non sports cars because they were too slow, and then end up walking for blocks when i shouldve just car jacked the hoopty.


PleaBargainPlz

I'd put a whole lot of money on a bet that every fat woman you know has had more sex than you, with people more attractive than you. Just because you don't like fat people doesn't mean they aren't having sex.


UskaPickica11

And you'd lose chunky.


PleaBargainPlz

I *really* doubt that, baby boy. People hate fat people cuz they're jealous of their confidence/attractiveness/ the fact that people do want them and/or they're mad they're attracted to said fat people but fat people won't give them the time of day. Which one are you?


UskaPickica11

You're one of those chunkers that think denial is a river in Egypt.


PleaBargainPlz

Nah but good luck with your jealousy. I've heard therapy helps.


munchkinpants-

Hahahah. Nope. I used to be quite a bit larger than I am now, had plenty of very fit well toned guys interested.


Own_Performer_7713

That’s nothing new to us The problem with our society is there’s more average woman chasing high value man, so nature is going to take it’s course and while they waited too long for the 6 figure making guy, they will most likely die alone because they listened to another friend that she should feel entitled or “guhl you deserve better…..” That’s why you gotta stay humble and know where you standing at I had once a teacher (woman) that told the girls in my class to take care of their reputation because even if they change their behavior in the future, their reputation will be ahead of them, we were 12-13 when she told us this and now being 21 she was definitely right. I still wish them good luck and that they find what they’re looking for Let’s not forget this article was most likely also written to enrage the reader and play violin with your emotions but still it’s good to call out the double standards Edit: Getting downvoted I’m thanking OP for calling out the bullshit


SupremeElect

>they will most likely die alone because they listened to another friend that she should feel entitled or “guhl you deserve better…..” 1) irrespective of whether we have kids, a spouse, extended family, etc., most of us will die alone. 2) it’s better to die alone than to die with someone who makes you miserable…


[deleted]

Yes I've never really understood the whole "you'll die alone if you don't do x, y and z" line of argumentation. Many people who do all those things end up dying alone as well and it also assumes that dying alone is somehow a bad thing


Own_Performer_7713

Obviously I cannot expect you to understand this since you’re asking on Reddit if soft-ghosting is bad because you can’t just tell people what you really think about them and cut them loose, you prefer to have them on the hook and play with your meal before you ignore it forever Oh and yes I’m also a Gen Z


SupremeElect

red herring much?


Own_Performer_7713

1. Dying alone is a figurative speech (meaning not getting to know how it is to get old with one person you really like and take care of each other. Explaining it for the people that don’t know what it means) 2. Nobody is talking about a toxic relationship 3. I’m talking about the type of woman that like to go full feminazi with a regular guy but will change her personality with a person that makes 6 figures basically calling out the double standards like OP did 4. There is also the option of growing together in a relationship and building together so we can both give 100% to build our dream (not gold digging for money/Social status/Fame and or your partners physics) Don’t try to change what I meant so it fits your narrative


PinocchiosWoodBalls

Let me guess: you’re really into black and red pills and subs that are big angry about women? Btw: not being attracted to fat people is exactly like not being attracted to small people. It doesn’t matter that you can’t change your height.


Own_Performer_7713

Oh hell naw 🤣 but thanks for guessing I don’t fuck with Q, Trump people or dems I try my best to stay out of American politics since now a days people can’t be moderate I’m not angry at woman but I call out the double standards that SOME woman have I wasn’t talking about liking or not liking something I was talking about the double standards. Do you want me to repeat it again like a broken CD?


Own_Performer_7713

I think I made it pretty easy to understand what I meant by my first comment but like always somebody needs to jump in and take stuff out of its original context because having an internet discussion is entertaining and making somebody else look bad to get upvotes is super life achieving


Own_Performer_7713

Ach du scheisse bist du ein SJW aus Deutschland? Amerikanische kultur färbt an jeden ab


jbag72

You are not “plus size” you are obese.


panzerbjrn

This is one of the things that I find so ludicrous. People of that size are not "plus-size", hey are obese and need to slim down for their own health. It's like when someone refers to themselves as curvy when those curves are fat rolls...


Opia_One

I believe like many other issues we are facing right now it is due to the unbelievable rise in utterly unrealistic entitlement in the past 20ish years. This level of entitlement seems to cause unrealistic/delusional expectations that we are currently seeing run rampant throughout society these days


[deleted]

That's fine as long as they're okay with winding up with nothing. You can choose to have only the finest things in life but if you can't get those things you better be okay with not having anything.


Opia_One

>That's fine as long as they're okay with winding up with nothing Honestly, I don't think that this level of entitlement is fine. In my opinion high levels of entitlement like this is a lower form of mental illness. I am not saying this specifically about plus size women but people in general. I feel like society in general prioritizes things like this these days and then gets overly aggravated and aggressive when anyone points out that they are wrong to do so. Instead of just me, me, me; if society would just let their egos take the back seat for a hot minute and think of how they would want to be viewed and treated and treat others the same way or better it may just start to be a much better dynamic between one another


djeanzm

Fat women saying they are choosie is like reditors saying they are single by choice.

MR_Bauglir

No it's because big guts on guys make sex with big girls rather tough.


AST_PEENG

Definitely not different, just double. If they spend hours crying about a guy not liking them because of "fat shaming" then they prove they are snakes and liars when they turn around and do the same thing.


-SierraModeling-

Whoa


skinnergy

Same with men. My obese friend says he can't stand women with bellies. It's quite special really?


LordLolzeez

Gentlemen who have been cultivating mass are not attracted to morbidly obese women


papacheapo

It's in the same way that calling me a "big man" is like a compliment; but applying that same adjective to a woman is probably not going to work very well.


ChocoScythe

Most people aren't attracted to people of an unhealthy body weight. Last time I checked, overweight woman were people too.


cdhicks42

by the look’s of her, i’d say triple standards


-mindtrix-

This is simple. Men fucks everything.
