soooooo is no one going to say ANYTHING about how this woman is full of shit?
like oh, you needed a fat suit to learn that fat people aren’t treated well? OR HOW ABOUT YOU JUST LISTEN TO THE ENDLESS STORIES FROM ACTUAL FAT WOMEN WHO COULD HAVE TOLD YOU THIS IN TWO SECONDS
you needed a fat suit to show that people don’t like when people use “fake” images …. I GET IT THAT IT’S SUPPOSEDLY STILL THE SAME PERSON but i mean, this is why i keep my pics up to date, because i don’t want to put myself through this
I’d be just as displeased if some guy showed up looking 40 when he said he was 25 (has happened), so I mean, what is this experiment proving other than “people on dating sites expect you to look like your photo, regardless of what you look like/weigh”
and you couldn’t find an actually fat woman for this entirely POINTLESS “experiment”
my body is not your fucking costume
the struggles and hardships i face from a fatphobic society don’t come off at the end of the day. I can’t unzip my oppression and slide it off
l FUCKING HATE PEOPLE WHO PUT ON FAT SUITS BECAUSE THE EXPERIMENTS THEY DO ARE ALL FALSE RESULTS
Like oh, you felt bad because some guys left you while in a fat suit? But you KNOW you get to take it off later. You KNOW this isn’t something you’ve dealt with for 20+ years, and likely won’t have to ever experience once the suit is gone.
Wear that suit, EVERY DAY, even in the shower, for 20+ years, FROM CHILDHOOD, THEN fucking tell me what you’ve learned. Until then, get the fuck out of my face with this social experiment bullshit
… Or you know it’s more important to put the one who might discriminate in the tough situation. Empathy is hard to learn, and often the only visible change is after feeling the hatred yourself. Ranting about this costuming is bullshit. It would be the same as changing genders to see the effect and realizations that come from it.
Everyone is bound to bitch about their situations. Life sucks sometimes and living isn’t easy for anyone. If it was an obese person in the position, nothing is learned because nothing is changed. The simple truth is that if you want to change the discrimination from thinner people, then through a thinner person into this situation.
I have been anorexic, overweight and all variations of size, and all of them come with their own problems. The fact that this discrimination- especially against female bodies when compared to their second video, is the important part. Get over yourself and let someone try to see through your eyes or nothing will ever change, and you become the problem.
