The things I hear just in passing from people having everyday conversations, blows my mind sometimes. The crazy thing is if people will say those things in public, I can’t imagine what they talk about in private.
I was scrolling on Facebook the other day, passing through the normal shenanigans on my timeline, when I saw someone’s comment on a post. The post was a meme of a plus size woman and a male of average build. The quote under the post said, “This is the kind of woman I want to come home to every night.” As you may know, as you scroll down your timeline you can see a status/post and the first or last comment under it. The comment I saw said, “Okay man, so you lowered your standards?”
I found that comment very interesting, not because of who said it, but because I was wondering how many other men feel that way about dating a plus size woman. How many men are dating a plus size woman currently or considering it, but is thinking “I had to lower my standards to date this woman.”
Why are plus size woman looked at so low on the totem pole, where dating a big beautiful woman is a downgrade? Simply because plus size women have a belly, thicker thighs or larger limbs we’re a downgrade. Forget the fact we can cook, are loyal, have a good heart, and can prolly teach you a trick or two where it counts 😉. Nope, most men are too stuck on the fact that our stomachs are not flat and our thigh gap isn’t wide enough.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you have to be attracted to plus size women. It is fine to say a plus woman is not your type, but it is disrespectful to say someone downgraded because they decided to date a plus size woman. Trust me if you have to question if being with someone makes you look bad or makes it seems as though you have low standards, then it’s probably best for the both of you if you don’t date them at all.
