Put on a few extra pounds this holiday season? Don’t expect a welcome mat from BeautifulPeople.com, a dating site who recently made like a high school bully: belittling and booting members for weight gain.
According to the Guardian, the site has just expelled 5,000 members for packing on the pounds. To add insult to injury, the site’s founder, Robert Hintze, stated, “Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.”
Andrea adds: This sort of thing gives me cause to ponder why the divorce rate isn’t higher. Again.
Brigitte puts on her cynical hat: Probably because the people who sign up on that site aren’t looking for marriage…
Andrea again: Understood. But my point poorly made was that marriage doesn’t happen in a vaccuum and a culture that sells “beautiful” people for sex online, of their own free will, is missing the point entirely on what it means to be in meaningful relationship.by
