Dating relationships men not calling often who is lamar odom dating now
It’s somewhat similar to statements like “all Asians are smart” or “all gay men are fashionable and confident.” Fat men are stereotyped as being warm and cuddly, but not much else on the “positive” side of stereotyping.As evidence of this, one of the game show contestants gave an answer that ended up not being on the board: that a woman would date a fat man because he was good at sex.I’ll keep repeating the point, even if I sound like a broken record: many people actually find fat men attractive!This was the only truly mocking-free answer included in the top answers on the board.” My sister tagged me in this post knowing my background in fat studies and sexuality studies (and as a fat masculine person), knowing I would agree with her frustrations.[Image description: A screenshot of the Family Feud game board with the six most popular answers: “Fatty got money” (34 out of 100 people surveyed), “She’s fat/digs food” (23/100), “She’ll look better” (12/100), “She’s in love” (9/100), “He’s warm/cuddly” (6/100), and “He won’t cheat” (4/100).]The one thing this particular round of Family Feud does correctly is summarize many of the unfortunate myths our society perpetuates about fat people — specifically, fat men — and relationships.To assume that fat people will only ever be with fat people is at the very least ignorant, if not completely fatphobic and sizeist.
The fact that this myth is the most popular of the six given answers — 34 of the 100 people originally surveyed gave this or a similarly-worded answer — is troubling in itself.
This myth is something we see throughout American culture, whether it’s in movies, politics, or popular culture.
If a classically attractive person of any gender is with a fat man, the general assumption is that this fat man has to have money or some sort of power.
However, calling out fatphobic myths was obviously not the game’s aim.
Instead it perpetuated body terrorism against fat bodies to score cheap laughs.
