Dating hot picture woman
At the end of the day, people like Robbie Tripp are generally innocuous, but he nevertheless perpetuates the overarching attitude that it is somehow abnormal or unacceptable to be attracted to a fat person.
What bothers me is not Tripp's fondness for his wife's body, but the way he pats himself on the back in the most public possible way — and that others are actually following suit.
Social media is abuzz today about Robbie Tripp, a man who posted about loving his wife's curves on Instagram and suddenly attracted a bizarre amount of attention for doing so.
In an act bolder than posting a no-makeup selfie, Tripp captioned a photo earlier this week of his wife and himself on a beach.
"You have such a pretty face," a family member might lament in a tone halfway between resigned and complimentary.
A well-intentioned yet frustratingly oblivious friend might quip, "You're lucky you have curves — they're so trendy right now! Models with a specific hip-to-waist-to-bust ratio are who you're referring to, and this does not mean our society is suddenly, universally respectful toward fat people.
It's neither revolutionary nor saintly to find fat women attractive, folks, and pretending otherwise is doing way more harm than good.
Bette Davis once said that getting old is not for sissies.
So what’s a midlife woman who was raised in a world where men were “supposed” to make the first move do?He accompanied the picture with a long caption describing his experience being bullied for liking "girls on the thicker side," then proceeded to high-five himself for finding his life partner attractive while instructing men on which women they should (or should not) find attractive, too.The post quickly picked up steam, garnering over 23,000 likes and high praise from large publications.The only problem: it's a nonstory that is virtually meaningless from any positive angle, and the Internet quickly took notice. His Instagram caption begins, "I love this woman and her curvy body.As a teenager, I was often teased by my friends for my attraction to girls on the thicker side, ones who were shorter and curvier, girls that the average (basic) bro might refer to as 'chubby' or even 'fat.'" OK, so we've established that the initial victim in the story is him. He continues, "[My wife's] shape and size won't be the one featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan but it's the one featured in my life and in my heart." I'll ignore how cliché that last line is because I, for one, adore silly romantic clichés. I do not, however, love when men all but congratulate themselves for their preferences in women.
