WTF? There Are Dating Events For Skinny Women Only
Wait until you see the excuse for this one.
Dating can be really sexist. To make matters worse, there's one speed dating service encouraging daters to be totally shallow (and insulting) by hosting events only for skinny women.
According to Yahoo, On Speed Dating is an NYC-based event company that hosts speed dating events where only women wearing sizes 0 to 10 are allowed. The company's website sums up its ridiculous policy: “According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the average clothing size for adult women in the United States is a 14, making our upcoming "Skinny Minny" night for svelte women size 0-10 anything but average. Guys, no need to worry about meeting a biggie-size chick "down-sizing" to an 8 like when you're dating on-line. We'll be checking labels at the door....for real!"
What's hilarious, is that the site tries to find logic in a stupid policy. "We all have relationship ‘deal-breakers', and that does not make us shallow, we’re just single New Yorkers that know what we want and are attracted to," the site says. "Obviously, there is more to it than just height or size, but for many of us that initial 'attraction' factor is at least a starting point."
A better starting point is to work on being shallow. Beauty comes in all sizes and shapes.
