Dating site kicks off fat members
Seven years ago I decided I needed to get over my ex. Back then, internet dating felt like a realm reserved for the desperate. Dimensions being a new way to market the human character. He’d even worked as a journalist for Christian magazines. Writer Guy: Think “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” I’d like to have most of it erased.
It had been five months since we broke up, and he managed to meet someone the following week. Mail-order brides, ex-nuns with facial hair, obese IT nerds who live alternate lives online as robo-cut Japanese animé heroes.
The US, the UK, and Canada topped the list of excluded members.
You have to be deemed beautiful by 50% of the votes.Of course to each their own in dating preferences, but this level of cruel, shallow PR asshattery of Hintze (I’m sure he would label it “blunt) is just another sign of the cultural acceptance of sh*tting on the less-than-svelte. For me, the brilliance of Vanessa’s words was that she didn’t position fat women as tragic figures needing pity or shame, nor did she boldly claim sexual empowerment in the name of fat women everywhere.The move was reportedly prompted by members themselves, who police the membership of the site to maintain a high – if highly subjective – standard of attractiveness.“As a business, we mourn the loss of any member, but the fact remains that our members demand the high standard of beauty be upheld,” said site founder Robert Hintze.
