Guys Who Like Fat Chicks (Village Voice)
Dan Weiss is 26, stands five-foot-six, weighs about 130 pounds, and has a thin chinstrap beard outlining his jawwithout the scruff, he looks 12. This Tuesday afternoon in March is the first time weve ever met, even though hes a freelance music writer and weve been e-mailing each other professionally for years.

I first took an interest in him in September 2009, when he reviewed a live show of the Coathangers, a scrappy all-female grrrl-wave four-piece from Atlanta. In a note that was apropos of nothing really, he mentioned that he had taken out a description of the women in the band as super-cute, because, he said, he didnt want anyone to think he was into skinny girls.

His Facebook profile filled in some of the blanks. He wore black-rimmed glasses and uniformly tight band T-shirts. He had shaggy black hair that fell in wiry squiggles. He played guitar and studied English at William Paterson University. There were snapshots of him posed with a beautiful young woman who appeared to be more than twice his size, wearing a French-maid Halloween costume. And there was a link to Ask a Guy Who Likes Fat Chicks, an unsigned advice-column blog for your plumper-related stumpers.

4. Wow.
Edited on Thu May-05-11 06:37 PM by Lucian
What it comes down to is that some guys like fat chicks and some guys don't. Why did they have to write this article? It seems as though he's being held up on a higher pedestal than the rest of us because of his taste in women. So he likes fat chicks. Big deal.

It all comes down to personal preference.

Edited to add that I'm pretty sure if I wrote an article on how much I like skinny chicks, I'd be beaten down by the populace for being "insensitive."

7. Well, I applaud your honesty...
and I take solace in inferring that as a fellow lover of skinny women that there is probably a correlating population of women who love fat men like me.

9. Yes.
It comes down to personal taste. One taste should've be applauded over another taste.

6. I wouldn't mind picking on someone my own size (or close to it), either.
(6'3", 270)

Then again, I'm flexible: the temptress who I flipped out for a couple of years ago, harder than Newt did over Libya, is 3'8". That is not a misprint!

Little people need love too.

11. Sad to say, she has more than she knows what to do with
:cry:

of course, it doesn't hurt that she also has an advanced degree in sexuality studies. Seriesly. :-)

12. Sorry but I find this guy offensive along with his column
Edited on Thu May-05-11 07:25 PM by LynneSin
Really, who cares what someone's weight is. Why must I be clumped into a specialty group that has to be marketed to society as a 'Why not try these girls instead'.

How about like me for me. Like me for my witty banter, or my intelligence or my caring for others or whatever - but if you want to date me because "I like to date fat chicks" I'd rather not date someone like that. To me that is someone being judgmental and ultimately making me feel bad for who I am.

For those of you who think this is cool - SHAME ON YOU!

13. The moderators have decided to lock this.
It's insensitive and likely to start a flamefest.
