Dating sites that ask about breast size
"Seriously, if he can make me laugh and is confident, he's in. Take any other physical characteristic -- weight, hair color, size of...certain body parts -- and casually listing it as a non-negotiable dating requirement would strike the average person as at least kind of shallow and crass, if not offensively discriminatory.And yet, isn't this brazen height-ism just another variation on the kind of "no fat chicks" misogyny that would seem both offensive and outdated if a guy were to just casually drop it into a Tinder profile?You know, something like this: "I will only date men 5’11" and over," says Annabelle, a 35-year-old woman standing at an above-average height of 5'11".
I learned first-hand how the stigma effects women who undergo elective surgery.
The great part was, though, that a few of these dates ended up being exactly what I needed to realize that my boobs (now and then) do not define me.
It wasn't about men confirming that I looked awesome post-surgery — it was about me realizing how little anyone's opinion of me really mattered outside of the college bubble that had judged me so harshly. I almost never mention what an internal struggle my breast reduction has been.
And as for a breast reduction: no, I honestly hadn't thought of getting them reduced until a terribly unfortunate series of nip-slips at a pool party the summer after my sophomore year of college.
Fast forward a year, and it was the pain that ultimately got to me.
