    Superiority in FAness

    As agouderia pointed out, the social dynamic is different for males. I've dated a fat lawyer and a skinny tradesman....the tradesman was who drew attention. This is a situation where there just is not an analogous dunamic.

    Superiority in FAness

    I never said I knew anything about his relationship. What I said is I was reacting to his posts because that's all I know. People's sexuality is a private matter....be dom/sub whatever. None of my business. The initial stated purpose of this thread was discussing if skinny FA feel superior...

    Superiority in FAness

    Considering that all I know about their relationship is what's been posted on here, that's unfair and shortsighted. He almost gleefully recounts his wife's eating habits, as well as his own fitness and workout efforts. There's also the practical social norms. No reasonable person does not think...

    Superiority in FAness

    You're missing that there's an inherent imbalance in your relationship. She may be dominant, but that's because you enjoy it and allow it. If you broke up tomorrow, which of you would have an easier time finding a new partner? Which of you would have a more comfortable lifestyle? If you were...

    Superiority in FAness

    HM, you mention in the original post of the other thread that your wife has received approval from other fat women for being with you. You have mentioned this dynamic in other posts as well. You've said something along the lines of her getting positive reactions when "One of their own" managed...

    Reactions and Observations From a "Mismatched" Couple

    She's saying that for the most part, random strangers are not noticing you or expressing any reaction to a skinny man with a fat woman.

    Superiority in FAness

    The OP wasn't suggesting that FA feel superior for being FA. He was questioning why he and others derive enjoyment from the surprise surrounding him being an FA. Fat is not viewed as a desirable trait, because most people in modern Western culture find fat to be aesthetically and sexually...

    Superiority in FAness

    According to your post, it's acceptable to like the idea of people wondering why she's with him.

    Superiority in FAness

    Do you really believe it's "an ok thing to feel" that you enjoy having people wonder why you're with your wife?

    Reactions and Observations From a "Mismatched" Couple

    I wasn't bashing him for working out or for being wealthy. My point was there's no reason at all to continually mention those things. His posts, to me, have an element of superiority and ironically, fatphobia. He seems to take an incredible amount of pleasure at seeing others being...

    Reactions and Observations From a "Mismatched" Couple

    It's not what....it's how. He's said repeatedly she does not like being fat, yet he describes in detail her eating habits. Any casual observer would believe she suffers from Compulsive Eating. By his own telling, she routinely eats massive amounts of junk food and has more than doubled her...

    Reactions and Observations From a "Mismatched" Couple

    No...he also mentioned they were overweight. Am I really the only one on here with a huge measure of discomfort over his posts? He goes on ad nauseum about how THIN and FIT and ATHLETIC he is. How he is so obsessed with working out....and as an aside he's so wealthy and successful? All the...

    Reactions and Observations From a "Mismatched" Couple

    So...you assumed they were rude and judgemental about your wife's lifestyle choices, and in turn you judged them as being "low brow" for choosing to smoke?

    Workplace pranks

    I'm a server and bartender, so pranks are notorious at our jobs. These include asking a new employee to empty the coffee machine water (It's hooked up to the sink, so you can't actually empty it) or to go to another nearby restaurant and ask to borrow their left handed ladle because all of ours...

    Lookism and #MeToo

    I have not seen a single suggestion anywhere that only men are predators.

    Lookism and #MeToo

    The OP is equating sexual harassment with lookism and actually suggests that #metoo is bragging. She even hints that she has been harassed herself but won't participate. In her second post she acts as if I'm a knee jerk first wave feminist that actually believes sexual harassment is about power...

    Lookism and #MeToo

    This is why I've stopped posting on Dims. Enjoy your safe spaces, trigger warnings, and believe that you're being SHAMED because someone buys a can of diet soda.

    "What ever happened to..."

    It actually occurred to me that Heavy Cream might be TFS but I don't think so. Their writing styles are quite different. I recall there was some dustup with TFS when "She" was admitted to a private SSBBW board and other obviously female posters were not.

    Lookism and #MeToo

    Do you seriously believe that sexual harassment has anything to do with being attractive? I literally had to read your post twice because I thought "There's no way at all she thinks that #metoo is about women boasting about their looks." I mean you actually believe women are bragging about...

    "What ever happened to..."

    You keep waiting for that. Just ignore what everyone has told you. Obviously there is an actual person behind the TFS posts, but it's definitely not a large woman that works as an office manager and is married to an engineer named Art who was never into fat girls until he met her.
