Fat goth girl dating
This whole fatphobia thing is also evidence of something that at seems quite obvious, but nonetheless is difficult to keep in mind at all times.
It's evidence that Goths are pretty regular people and very influenced by the culture trends and media of our day.
They whine about the fat Goth girls who obviously must be doing it for male attention or because we don't look good in "normal" clothes.
Let me tell you, the only reason I don't look good in "normal" clothes is because the most attractive accessories are self-confidence and a smile, and I'm not wearing either when I'm dressed in skinny jeans and a Hollister t-shirt.
If you want to be repulsed by our own subculture, just google or search Tumblr tags for the phrase "fat Goths" and you can see many people complaining about fat Goths.
That does not excuse Fatphobia against Goth men or other genders, and if you would like to contribute to the discussion from those perspective please do feel free to contact me via the usual methods about it and I'll add it to this post or make another which includes your testimony.It is reducing someone's worth to how sexy, beautiful, attractive, etc. An aside: From within the subculture, it seems to mostly come from individuals who want the subculture to stay within its roots, they want every guy to be the perfect high-cheekboned and gaunt Peter Murphy and every woman to be the willowy and sultry-but-intimidating Siouxsie Sioux.According to these people, none of the original Goths were fat, Goths can't be fat. But they also seem to be the type of people who most viciously guard the "you must listen to Goth music to be a Goth, it's nothing to do with fashion" trope, which seems more than a little hypocritical.Someone telling me "You're fat" holds about the same weight as someone telling me "You have blue eyes" or, from people further outside the subculture, "You're such a Goth." So why get upset about it, then?Because I know I'm lucky to be as self-confident as I am.
