Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat. —
When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
“Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
That’s it. That’s it right there.
I cannot TELL YOU the number of times I’ve hit it off with someone in an online dating community only to have them drop me without a word when they saw my picture. Like, all those great conversations we had? Meant absolutely nothing once they saw I was fat. Thanks for revealing your douchebaggery early, assholes.
The flipside, of having my photo and body size available at first glance, means I get a number of guys who are ONLY interested in my body size as a fetish, or who view me as an easy target, because clearly I have no standards or self-respect. which is also more than a little problematic.
Oddly, serial killers, never a problem. (That I know of.)

Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
