I just tweeted the following statement:
"In my opinion, a guy saying on his match.com profile that he wants a skinny girl is the equivalent of a girl saying she wants a guy that makes 6 figures."
This may seem like a male-bashing post...And maybe I'm just in the mood to do just that....or maybe I've just come across a perfect way to express my feelings in regards to the whole subject.
Guys. If you make 40K, 50K, or even 80K- would you prefer that we discount you? Would you prefer that we make the assumption that you are not working hard enough? That you are lazy? That you don't have self-discipline? Would you want us to disregard you and your efforts if you didn't measure up to the 100K salary line?
In the same way, I know plenty of girls (myself included) who work out 4-6 times a week, eat healthy, make conscious efforts to he the healthiest that she can be but might not measure up to the standards the world/media has set. If she doesn't measure up to your idea of 'slender'....should she be dismissed and looked over?
Food for thought.
