Top 10 reasons why women think they’re fat

July 10, 2009

(trigger alert)

This is probably the most disgustingly misogynistic thing I’ve ever read. Shapely Prose and their readers already did a pretty good job of tearing it apart, but I thought I’d share for those of you who don’t read SP.

I don’t even feel like I need to try and unpack what’s going on in this “article” because it’s so blatantly harmful and hateful to women. If you want to read some real commentary on it (and some great new titles for it), check out the comments at SP.

    Ashley and I read these all through together and cringed heavily: creepy. Very, very creepy. That whole article is just littered with very unsubtle sentences basically saying, “Be a sociopath!” and “Abuse your girlfriend freely!” as well as “It’s OK to lie in a relationship” and “Her well-being doesn’t matter.”

    Are “men” actually reading this and taking its advice? Dear God, I hope not; just browsing through the other Top 10 lists (e.g., “Top 10 Signs She’s a Social Leper”) shows a total disconnect from the real world or any positive regard for women except as possessions. Shudder.
