Speed Dating Allows Women Only If They're Skinny

No room for women over size 8.

It’s hard for anyone to find love, especially if you aren’t stick thin and beautiful. And an event in New York City is making it even harder. Called “Skinny Mini Speed Dating,” it bars anyone who is more than a size 8. Oh, wait, let me clarify that: It bars any woman over size 8. But if you’re a dude with a huge beer gut, welcome to the party! An undercover journalist went to one of these events, where she was branded with a nametag with her size in red marker. The night ended with a man remarking to her, “If you gained, like, a pound, I would no longer be attracted to you.” And lots of women actually show up to these demeaning events. Seriously.
