Why else would someone who could presumably get with anyone they wanted choose to be with a disgusting fat man, right?
This kind of thought is extremely damaging for a lot of fat men, placing all their value as people into the money or power they may or may not have.
While there are, of course, some people who only seek relationships for money or power, the truth is that quite often, people will choose to be with a fat man because they actually want to be with him.
This myth is much less often applied to skinny or “fit” men, unless of course that person is known to have money or power.
But it’s much easier for people to understand two skinny or traditionally attractive people being together because they’re attracted to each other than when a skinny or traditionally attractive person chooses to be with a fat man for other less superficial reasons.
