When I dumped my first girlfriend after a year-long pattern of lies and secret eating she accused me of being shallow. I said I'd rather be shallow than bottomless.

I suppose it's because society now actively encourages fat-logic, and plenty of fat people have gratefully accepted the mantle of being a victim. Many of them have convinced themselves that their weight isn't their fault, but their internal resentment at themselves ends up getting thrown at everyone else.

Yep. We’re biologically wired to seek healthy looking mates. We regard obesity the way we regard spoiled fruit or open wounds. (That’s not right, there’s something off.)

Not just that, but everyone is susceptible to health issues. A fat can't even take care of themselves, how could you expect them to care for YOU if you became ill? You can't. They'd be driving to the pharmacy to pick up some medications but stop at McBetus, blood sugar would spike and the high would make them forget what they were doing.

It's a big issue with any kind of substance abuse. Whether we're talking twinkie or heroin. I'd guess most of us are probably much healthier than the average. And that tends to come with a common assumption that you're going to be in the caregiver role. Even when everyone's sick the person who looks after their health the most will usually be weathering it the best. It tends to make one assume that's always going to be the case. Sickness as something that only happens to others. But as you say, everyone can get sick or injured.

And that's when you really see the issues with substance abuse. Someone who needs to stop everything they're doing, constantly, isn't able to really take care of someone who's been hit hard. At worst the average person has two things they need to power through. A need for food and sleep. But going low on sleep for a bit or skipping a meal or three isn't fun but it is doable. An addict can't or won't do that. They need to constantly stop everything to get a hit of whatever their poison of choice is.

It's part of why I'm fine being friends with addicts but would never date one. You will ALWAYS come in at third place. Their drug comes first, they come second, and even the most important people in their lives are off in a far more distant area. They could be fully aware that you're bleeding to death in a gutter and they'll need that hit first before they can head out.

Since fatties out number us and ideally they want a human they feel like they can shame us for our preferences. PC culture is trying to make everything inclusive so fats feel like their disgusting lifestyle should be accepted too. I get shit from my coworkers and some friends for not wanting a fatty.

It would break the bank to take them out to dinner.

She keeps saying fat is just skin deep? Tell her about visceral fat.

Because they want to have standards, but feel bad when they’re excluded in someone else’s standards. Simple really, they act like children.

What I find odd is why being shallow is a bad thing. Yes, I appreciate superficial beauty. I want an attractive partner and I don't see why I have to apologise for that. We all make constant judgements about everything from a piece of fruit, to a piece of paper based on how they appear and we will often simply pick the one that looks best.

Yeah, how dare people care about aesthetics when something will be in front of their eyeballs all the time! How horrible! Michelangelo should have just smeared poop on a block of marble and called it a sculpture instead of being so shallow and focused on what his art looked like!

I had that same conversation during a falling out with a friend who got really fat, years ago. She called me shallow. I called myself shallow. And what? She's visually offensive by her own doing and that should be enough. But there's always more to the story so it's not even shallow as her appearance suggests a deep ridge between her values and mine with regard to what makes life worth living.

edit: Nowadays (and with regards to dating) I just say "I'm sorry, I'm not attracted to you". What are they gonna do, sue me?
