Have you used Tinder yet to try to meet a date? Britney Spears is newly single and using it , so I just signed up for the app too. Maybe that’s why this story is resonating perhaps a bit more than it would’ve before, but the takeaway is something that we all could’ve guessed: men judge women more harshly by their physical appearance than vice versa. If men think they are meeting a traditionally “fit” woman and a heavier one shows up, they will behave poorly. Like extremely poorly. Sure, this isn’t a shocking thing to assume but watching it unfold in real time in the social experiment that the guys at Simple Pickup concocted is still a little unreal. They created a Tinder profile that had photos of the girl as she really is—thin and very fit—and then had her show up to the date in a fake fat suit.

Fat-suit ‘party game’ sparks outrage in plus-size community
When Netflix released the trailer for its new comedy Insatiable , which premieres on August 10, many were incensed. Fat women, Insatiable implies, are unattractive, unconfident, and unloved; constantly sighing at their reflections or slumping on sofas with a quart of ice cream. The decision to cast actress Debby Ryan as Patty caused particular consternation.
Listen, dating while fat isn’t a walk in the park. There are some people out there who don’t want to get freaky with fat folks, and that’s fine, because.
We were all excited to see her journey from pounds to a size FOUR! Inspired to do so by the upcoming nuptials of her ex, Sugar Bear, Mama seemed determined to look good for the wedding.

Apparently, viewers are speculating that Mama June had already lost all the weight prior to filming, and is using a fat suit and prosthetic make up to build interest AND build her audience.
In an exclusive interview with Too Fab , Mama June said, “I just decided it was time for a change, to be more healthy and to do something for myself because I do so much for everybody else At first, people were saying, ‘You’re losing weight, you look great’ and I just ran with it. She added, “I hope that somebody will realize that’s going through t he same weight loss struggles that they’re not alone and realize it’s not all peaches and cream,” she said.

Stop Wearing Fat Suits to “Understand What It’s Like to Be Fat”
The catch? When they meet her in person, Sarah is wearing a fat suit and make-up designed to make her appear super-obese. Of the four men who arrive to meet Sarah, only one guy actually stays. The takeaway from this that we’re supposed to have is, “Oh my god, I can’t believe those assholes left like that! This wasn’t an experiment to see how people reacted to fat women when dating them online.
I do not remember the first time I saw an actor in a fat suit, but I was 21 years old when I turned on Tyra Banks’ talk show. Some were hopeless, pitiful befores who couldn’t get a date, couldn’t make friends, couldn’t connect.
Objective: Although a considerable amount of research has revealed connections between weight stigma and mental and physical health outcomes, no studies to date have experimentally manipulated the experience of obesity to understand how weight stigma causally affects eating behavior, physiology, and psychological well-being.
Research has also not yet identified effective strategies for reducing weight stigma. Methods: In this research, the effect of weight stigma on psychological outcomes, unhealthy eating behavior, and the stress hormone cortisol was examined by randomly assigning participants to appear obese by wearing a fat suit or not. It was hypothesized that the physical alteration of participants’ apparent body size would lead to similar consequences as those associated with the experience of weight stigma and reduce antifat attitudes.
Results: Supporting these hypotheses, experimentally manipulating apparent body size led participants to consume more unhealthy foods and report higher levels of negative effect. However, the study did not show any differences in cortisol reactivity or reduction in antifat attitudes as a function of the fat suit manipulation. Conclusions: These findings contribute to an understanding of the potentially deleterious psychological and behavioral effects of weight stigma while also informing future interventions to reduce weight stigma.

Gwyneth Paltrow said starring in Shallow Hal was a ‘disaster’ – here’s why she is right
Liz Shannon Miller. What that means is that her fat body is just a thin girl galumphing around strapped up in pillows she is not used to, meaning she can only appear graceless and unformed, like a guy on a street corner in a hot dog costume. But one way it could have averted those issues was by, perhaps, acknowledging that plus-size people not only exist in the world, but are more than capable of living full and happy lives. Over the course of the season, only one character is actually played by an actor who is legitimately plus-size — and Dee Ashley D Kelley is also tasked to represent the black and gay communities as well, the ultimate token whose story is never the focus of the show.
Thankfully, viewers looking for narratives that treat women who wear sizes larger than two as human beings have better options, streaming on various services. In this age of too much TV, that last factor means an awful lot.
The experiment was gimmicky — find out what happens when a Tinder date shows up much larger in person than they appear in profile photos.
Women who showed up looking fatter than their photo had very different experiences. Keep it classy dude. The Huffington Post piece points out that a study has shown that women who date online are afraid of meeting a serial killer and men who date online are afraid of meeting someone fat, that definitely seems to be playing out here. Still there are things to be learned from this.
What if someone had makeup on, or a padded push up bra, or shapewear in the picture but not on the date? What constitutes lying about appearance? Or is this really more about the social stigma that is placed on being fat, especially as it relates to being a woman. I can also tell you from experience that even stating clearly that you are fat, complete with pictures of you hanging out being fat, will not protect you from going on dates with fatphobic jerks.
People are allowed to do what they want including only dating people who look a certain way and using less than accurate pictures on dating profiles. Neither of these is for me because, to paraphrase George Washington, I learned a long time ago that I would rather be alone than in bad company. Like this blog?

A hot guy and a hot girl post profiles of themselves on Tinder and then when their dates show up they are wearing fat suits. False identities has been a hot topic on this blog. In fact, just last week we had Jen share how she thought she was dating an interior designer named Joel, who later turned out to not be an interior designer or named Joel.
These people did a great job with their videos because initially the videos forced me to elicit the exact reaction they wanted — anger and disgust. The women, on the other hand, seemed surprised at first but were still kind to their portly potential match. One kissed him goodbye and other made plans for a second date.
Complete polar opposite reactions to the same situation. Yes, the videos were entertaining and yes, they did serve to show how men and women react differently. However, my issue with the videos lie in the fact that I believe they were not necessary. Tinder, in itself, is a superficial medium for dating. On top of that, are we really that surprised with how this experiment turned out? I do admit I was shocked at the level of blatant disrespect the men had for the women and the fact that because a woman was fat, men felt it was acceptable to talk to her in a belittling and de-valuing way.
