Relationship Advice from Sexist Assholes has an incredibly sexist and downright insulting article on their website. The article, Top 10 Subtle Ways to Tell Her She's Getting Fat, basically advises the partners of chubby women to humiliate them into losing weight.

Here's a sample of some of the stellar advice:
  • Take her to places where she has to wear a swimsuit
  • Leave "now" and "then" photos lying around
  • Sabotage her chair
  • Ask her to wear an old dress
  • Buy her clothes that are too small
  • Sign her up for yoga under the pretense of "stress relief"
Here's my own little bit of advice for men: Have an open and honest conversation with her about it, and provide her with positive support. Sure sounds a lot easier than sabotaging a chair or making her feel shitty about herself - which would likely have the opposite effect.

  1. A friend and I are so completely repulsed by this "advice" that we would like to repsond to It is unacceptable to promote this type of mentality. If anyone would like to contribute his/her thoughts, post them and we will include them in our response.
