However, the dating site experiencing their fifteen minutes of fame completely defends their decision to host a matchmaking event based on weight by saying, “We all have relationship ‘deal breakers‘ and that does not make us shallow, we’re just single New Yorker’s that know what we want and are attracted to.” I hope single New Yorker’s everywhere are outraged that they have been lumped into this exclusive group; like the secret society to which you never hoped to be admitted.
Just in case you were worried that a beautiful, kind-hearted, intelligent, size 10 catch of a woman might, by some chance, slip through the cracks and be admitted to the event, subjecting herself to the madness at hand, have no fear.
I wish you were correct, but thanks to recently reported that the women who attend these dating events are asked to wear a name tag with their dress size on it.
So, in the case that the men in attendance are even more narrow-minded and shallow than originally suspected, unsatisfied with the knowledge that any woman in the room is a size 8 or below, they can easily weed through those on the “larger” end of the spectrum to find their size-appropriate soulmate.
The most disturbing part is that there must have been women who signed up to attend this event; to get dressed up and go meet these men who, first and foremost, are fixated on their body type, prioritizing it over their brain.

Speed dating site On Speed is offering what it calls "Skinny Minny" events, which only allow women who are size eight or below to participate. According to The Huffington Post, women who go to the events have to wear their dress size on their nametags.
Naturally, there are no such stipulations for men—guys of every size are allowed to partake in the "fun."In fact, these speed dating sessions are specially tailored to please discerning single guys, making sure the women available perfectly suit their tastes. People have certain tastes for what they want in a partner, whether it's big, small, black, white, short, tall, emo, or preppy. But, look, I'm one of those so-called "skinny minnies" and I am all kinds of offended by this.
Do you want to know why my nearest and dearest run the gamut of shape and size?
We’ll be checking labels at the door,” they proclaimed. For a minute I was really worried about the integrity of this event being upheld.
“Biggie size chick.” I honestly didn’t know that grown adults who function at the minimum level necessary for social interaction such as dating used such immature, closed-minded, hateful speech.
Don’t worry, though – not all attendees were blatantly discriminated against; if you are a man hoping to attend “Skinny Minny” speed dating, there is a come one, come all policy – size 8 pant size or under not required.
You may be wondering how I could have anything else to discuss for the remainder of this article, because surely I gave away all the terribly misogynistic details up front.
