Nobody Cares If You're Attracted To Fat Chicks

If we actually managed to tattoo everything to people's foreheads that I found forehead-tattoo-worthy, we'd run out of space pretty quickly. But perhaps we can find a little room (around the temples or something) for this:

I hear from trolls all the time who complain that they don't want to be "forced" to find nasty, ugly fat women attractive--which utterly baffles me, since the last thing I want to do is encourage fat-hating dicks to date fat women. You don't find fat people attractive? Fabulous. Don't date them. I will find a way to pick myself up and move on without your love.


The point is not what characteristics you find attractive. It's that you feel entitled to be publicly judgmental about people who don't meet your standards of attractiveness, to tell them that they're objectively unattractive and have a duty to make themselves more attractive to you. It's not that hard, folks. I find women in glasses to be particularly hot, but yet I've managed to restrain myself from going around and telling people how they'd really look better with some nice frames (or telling them that I'm just very concerned about the potential danger to their health from contact-inserting fingers or surgical lasers).

What gets me is how it's normal to critique people's appearance, but you don't see "intelligence makeover shows." You don't hear guys whining about women who need to "Get your learn on. Read some books! Write an essay! Take a trip! Learn a skill!"

Jeezus; am I glad I'm not dating anymore. I hope my husband doesn't die young.

Now I'm trying to imagine how that show would work -- they could call it "The Biggest Learner," and take a bunch of people who dropped out of high school but now regret it, and have them compete to see who can score the highest on the GED.

Sure you do. In educated social milieus, nobody will ever date someone who can't keep up a conversation about politics or literature or culture.
