Young woman is owned on her double standards on dating app Tindr. An interesting article discussing the problem is here. The man writing the article (not the same guy who had the conversation on the dating site) in question is 6’10” and women are always asking him about his height.
I guess this bloke’s patience ran out because he gives this woman short shrift about the height-weight double standard in dating.
The comments are even more revealing to what extent some women attempt to justify their double standards. There are not that many comments so far but the one featuring the user called Ariel Elliot is very telling – it has become cliche that men are pigs for rejecting a woman because of a single physical factor (her weight) but women are just exercising their judgement and dating choices in rejecting a man because of a single physical attribute (his height).
I don’t judge people’s dating choices, and neither should anybody else judge mine or anybody else’s dating choices, but we can’t deny that men get pulled up on this stuff all the time and women usually get a free pass with “it’s biology!”
Just some food for thought. If you’d get angry because a man rejected you because of your weight, think twice about being so dismissive of men who don’t meet your minimum height requirement.
