Dating plus site sized woman
I get that "all women are beautiful." It's admirable. We need to challenge the paradigm, not wedge more women into it.About eight or nine years ago, I dated a woman for a few months who was a model. She had a lovely face and a perfectly proportioned and perfectly sized body. This physically perfect woman was a “plus-size model.” Since I don’t pay attention to fashion or to modeling, I hadn’t consciously realized until then just how insane the world of modeling had become. And I didn’t realize just how warped most women’s images of their own bodies have become.Sure, some commenters will post examples of sexual objectification of men by media. But it happens way, way, WAY less than it happens to women, so let's not get derailed here because that will be the purpose of those comments. Look, I'm not foolish enough to think that the male gaze will ever go away (or even should), nor do I believe it will ever cease being a driving force behind what a lot of women themselves have come to view as empowering. The problem is that a lot of men and women consider female outsides to be terribly important and constantly up for assessment in a way that is not the case for men. I understand human nature, but I still want more for girls and women.
