Unpopular opinion.

Earlier this week, I actually felt sorry for a Kardashian. No, it wasn’t Kim, Kourtney, or Khloe. But Rob Kardashian.  After TMZ  caught Rob arriving at LAX on his way to the infamous Kanye and Kim wedding, the site posted photos of a hefty Rob. And so began the jokes.

Rob, who apparently doesn’t use Twitter that often, signed back on to the site to defend himself:

Fat shaming has no gender.  But in the realms of dating, it’s mostly women who bare the brunt of  having to account for every pound they gain. On television, you’re quick to see a fat man with a ‘fit’ wife or girlfriend, but you hardly see the opposite.

Personally, I do have my preferences when it comes to dating men and the body types I prefer. In the realm of the “real world” I wouldn’t say Rob was “that” fat. I mean, I’ve seen pictures of him before, and I still believe under the extra pounds, a bae still exists.  Now will I date someone who’s a prime candidate for gastric bypass? Probably not.

    i’d date a somewhat chubby guy over a very skinny guy HOWEVER if said fat guy is shallow then no. if i am avoiding being shallow by not factoring in your appearance then you better not have even a whisper to say about mines. i know a lady dating a chubby guy who harasses her about her exercising daily. she looks 10x better than him.
    sn…i need to know better quality females with more confidence. i feel like a confidence preacher half the day.

  • No, I would not date an overweight man. I am pretty busy and I make time for exercise and make conscious choices about what I eat; my ideal date would take make the same sacrifices. Additionally, I have to admit that if you can’t look down and see your member, 9/10 I won’t be attracted to see you naked :-) I’m still fairly young enough, and dating men who are young enough not to have let themselves go. To each her own though, I have met women who love the extra meat!

    Hell no. I don’t have time to deal with health issues due to weight of my partner. I’m not trying to engage in a serious relationship with a man who will take a heap of pills, be in and out of the hospital, and die at a early age. Also, if we have children I don’t want to be the only person playing outside with them, due to the fact papa big ass can’t even run for 20 seconds. I play sports and I need a man that’s active and that can hang. Being overweight cost money at the end of the day. That’s why unhealthy food is promote to keep the Phizfer’s in the billions. Also, I want to feel the warm of a solid man not a woman. I don’t wanna feel the soft body. I might as well date a woman with a nice rack.
