It's never easy to be rejected for any reason, but fat women get used to it in their interactions with men sadly because it seems to be more socially acceptable to express disgust with fat than it is express other complaints about a person's physical appearance.In our culture, people are taught, unfortunately, that being fat is bad. A fat person is just as worthy of love, respect, and kindness as any other person.

People will swipe right just to tell you that they’re not at all attracted to you. Using your best angles is somehow considered a “lie.” Share a selfie on Tinder or another dating app and you’re a liar. How do you have the audacity to make yourself look good? That jerk knows nothing about your life, your health, or your history. Lyndsie Robinson west virginia native, new hampshire transplant, parisian in the depths of my unimpressed soul.
People match with you just to tell you that you’re fat. It’s just somehow acceptable to tell fat women what they need to do differently. You hear it all the time, though, from salespeople, randos at the restaurant, your landlord, that guy who walks his dog in front of your house, and even your dates.
There’s no reason for anyone to go out of her or his way to tell you what you need to fix before you’re “acceptable.” Also, no, you’re beautiful, period. There’s this idea that fat women have to compensate for being fat by being wild.
There’s no “but” or “except” or “if.” The fetishists show up in droves. There’s a book, Moose, that describes the myth quite well.

Fat is a feminist issue, perhaps even more so now in 2018 than when Susie Orbach wrote her book with that same name 40 years ago. (Women’s is that a man will be a murderer, of course.)

As a fuller figured woman, it’s like you have to do everything better than smaller women. Regardless of your size, if you’ve ever been on a dating site or an app, or if you’ve ever turned down a dude in person, you know this scenario has the potential to get hideously ugly. “I didn’t want you anyway.” “Screw you, you fat bitch, you should be grateful I’m even talking to you.” “I wouldn’t be seen with a fat chick.” You’re treated like a person until the end of the date.
Being adventurous in bed is supposed to give us a leg up or something.
