I recently saw the casting notice for Bursting With Love. Its a reality TV show based around the oh so shocking idea that a fit person (they really should say slim) could be attracted to a fat person.
The ad describes romantic pairing as a ‘physically lop-sided relationship.’ What a ridiculous sentiment that people should only date look exactly the same and only date their ‘own kind.’ By this rationale we should only date people who are the same height, hair and eye color and ethnicity.
The show pitches itself as being about ‘pride and liberation from societies stereotypes and not mean spirited.’ Lets remember the show title: Bursting with Love of course referring to the larger person in the couple who must be so fat they are bursting! Here are the full details:
Why is it so shocking that a fit guy could be attracted to a fat girl or that a fit girl could be attracted to a fat guy? What do you think?
