I don't think there is any question that it is more socially acceptable for a woman to be with a fat guy than for a guy to be with a fat woman.

This is a ricochet off the deeper societal assumption that women are defined and valued primarily in terms of looks (with 'fat' being automatically assumed to be less appealing); while men are more typically defined and valued in terms of prestige, wealth, power, etc..

For exactly the same reason, it's more acceptable for a women to be with an older man, than the reverse.
