Video

wow

watch the fat guy version of this video—where it’s a skinny guy turned fat and the girls meet up with him. it goes SO DIFFERENT. they actually talk about things other than his weight, and he even gets kissed.

oh, society.

go and look at the opposite video on youtube then look at the comments. Even though the women are clearly nicer and less judging than the men they still try to justify the men’s reactions and put down the women. It’s kind of disgusting actually. It’s one of those things that makes you sad that you live in this society. 

"it makes me so sad to lie in a society where you can’t get sex or a free male out of a man you’ve lied to on the internet" 

The experiment is actually a sham.

The ‘fat guy’ is an admitted dating expert.  As in, he has a goddamn youtube channel.  He knows how to date, he knows how to engage somebody and he knows immediately how to keep somebody sticking around.  The woman?  Not so much.

Look at the two videos.  The woman literally talks about herself, doesn’t even attempt to engage the guy and doesn’t try to make him interested in her as a person.  Like, when the girls call the guy out on being fat, guess what?  He says “Yeah, it is an old photo, about 3 or 3 years”, she says “Oh, maybe 6 months” and CONSTANTLY tries to underplay it like she’s being cute.

The guy at least owned the fact that he was fat.  The girl sat there was did pretty much everything to deflect.  The guy did his best to put his dates at ease, when at the start you could see they were shocked and a bit put off.  The girl didn’t, she deflected, made excuses, put the blame on the guy, and guess what?  That doesn’t make somebody want to sit down and continue the date.  It only makes them more agitated.

If anything, this highlights exactly what the problem is with hetero dating.  uys are expected to be everything they can, to take the reigns, to lead the date by being engaging and funny.  The girl doesn’t and is expected to sit there and be cute.  Guess what?  When all you’re expected to do is sit there and be entertained by your date, your date isn’t going to be fucking happy when you show up not looking like your profile.

Maybe if the girl actually, I dunno, acknowledged she was fat, didn’t try to shift blame, didn’t try to be ‘cute’ and tried to actually engage the guy, it might’ve worked.

And here’s the thing.  Not only is this experiment massively biased, the fucking odds aren’t that bad either.  Four men and four women.  4/4 women stayed, 1/4 men stayed.  Guess what?  With that margin of error you could’ve just had 4 nice women and 3 asshole guys.  Hell, for all we know, they specifically selected women who listed “okay with fat guys” on their Tindr and picked men who listed “no fat women” on theirs.

As somebody who is actually taking courses on research, this is a goddamn travesty of a ‘social experiment’.

Preach.

Biased people with no experimental design knowledge have produced a biased experiment. I am shocked.

Here’s an actual semi-well-designed study on looks and internet dating. Maybe the issue is less dating skill and more that women have such extraordinarily high expectations for the “average” appearance in men that they think they have to settle anyway.

But then again, even people with experience in experimental design produce bad experiments. In fact, bad studies are more common than good. How can you tell? Simple: You look into it, and most studies done (that aren’t BS YouTube “social experiments”) can easily be spotted as bad when using some pretty simple guidelines.

Also, she doesn’t look “right” if that makes sense. Her fat doesn’t match her face, she still has a skinny face on top of the fat suit, so it creates a bit of an uncanny valley effect.

Tumblr:

Where three men in a deliberately skewed social “experiment” represent “oh society” but where thousands of feminists, including the ones who are regarded as the most prominent speakers of the movement, are paid large amounts of money to teach courses or speak in major newspapers or be interviewed on national televison and are behind legilslation such as the Duluth Method 

are in no way representative of the feminist movement

mscaseydia asked:

Is it wrong for me to want my future children to be skinny? For no other reason than to save them from going through what I went through? Bullying, body issues, confidence, finding clothes, ect.?

thisisthinprivilege answered:

Ask yourself this: Would you feel good about yourself if you said that about a kid being gay or straight?

Now, ask yourself this: If you do have a fat kid, are you going to tell them they need to be skinny? Try to get them to lose weight? So that they won’t have to deal with the stigma of being fat? Are you going to shame them in an attempt to make them skinny, so they can avoid the shame of being fat? Because a whole lot of people do that, and that’s pretty awful.

I found this great blog today and had to share it :D 

Refashionista is an amazing seamstress who refashions awful thrift-store finds into new clothes and some of these results are so amazing?? Check her out! :D

she is a goddess

So she’s taking plus sized clothing and making it into hipster wear for people who aren’t fat?  Ok. 

looks ten times better on her anyways  

that is besides the point. She’s taking resources from plus sized people who likely need it more than she does. If she was really any good at her refashioning, she could use clothing that was her size(or close to it) and make her hipster monstrosities that way. 

So what? Who gives a fuck? Shes taking something ugly that no one wants and making it into something cute for

Clearly it is the empathetic people who actually COMPREHEND how problematic and detrimental this to an already twice marginalized group of people who give a shit. How about you learn how to be a little more considerate of people who are less fortunate than you. 

Before I even got to the comments I was repulsed by the first image

So…. she took already limited fat clothing resources, from a thrift store, thus taking these fat clothes DIRECTLY from those who don’t have the money to pay in store prices, and who cannot afford to be choosy and buy only what they deem attractive (also clothing is incredibly subjective, and your idea of ugly clothes might be someone’s fav dress.. so fuck off with that)

and turns them into hipster outfits? 

wow… assholes gone wild 

for every 20-50 stores for thin people, there is maybe ONE for fat people

and those who cannot afford to pay 2-4 times the cost of thin clothes, for those fat clothes, ONLY have thrift shops, and now even THOSE limited resources aren’t safe (because you know damn well when a fat person finds something that fits, they are unlikely to give it away because we already have so few options)

fucking WOW.

also how DARE you call fat person clothes ugly, and imply that because they aren’t your idea of cute, that we don’t deserve them. my apologies that the fashion industry treats us like shit and offers us burlap sacks… SORRY TO OFFEND YOU WITH SOMETHING OUT OF OUR CONTROL

god i just want to puke all over these photos and everyone defending her

the thing that bothers me is the stance she continually makes in her “before” pictures. I just find it unnecessary and sort of mocking? 

what is wrong with you people

Fat Privilege is getting upset and pissy because a woman with talent is taking the parachute monstrosities fatties wear, and turning them into actual clothing.

Fat Privilege is bitching and moaning because you’re too huge to fit clothes like a proper human being.

Fat Privilege is thinking you’re a “twice marginalized” group.

Fat Privilege is thinking that fat people are oppressed. Spoiler: you are not.

ITT: fat people getting hilariously upset about stupid shit #muhfeels

Daily reminder: “fat phobia” is actually a part of an evolutionary avoidance mechanism; it is seen as unhealthy (and it is) and therefor people will typically avoid fat people and abstain from sex with fat people. Fat phobia is natural, being fat isn’t.

Bigots love trying to science up their hatred.

And yet, they never have empirical evidence because none exists to support their hate-based “case.”

Also not how it say people typically abstain from sex with obese people, that is not to say there are not outliers

Thin privilege is having your weight compared to smoking.

My fiance recently started smoking again, even though he has stayed cigarette-free for over 6 months. I asked him why he would go back to smoking when he knows how bad it is for his health. And his response was to scoff and say “I don’t…

Obesity leads to a wide range of health problems, many of which are comparable to the damage of long term smoking. If you can’t see the obvious connection between weight and health you belong back in high school health class
