I moved this to keep your eyes peeled... but I find this appalling on many levels.


First off I love that they have to be subtle... because heaven forbid a man show his true intentions... so let's instead make a female feel badly about herself and think she's formulated this on her own, when in fact, you planted it into her head.

loosening the screws of a chair??

My "favourite" bits:

you’ll end up with a happier, more self-confident girlfriend rather than a grumpy lard-ass.

Lard-ass? Nice way of referring to someone you supposedly care about..

..try giving her smaller-than-usual amounts. If you feel as though you’re starving yourself in the process, remember you can always go back for more when she’s not looking.

Just make sure you don't starve in process of starving her, of course..

She recoils and feels embarrassment. Use this reaction to your advantage. Even if she thinks that you’re too busy at work to have noticed a few extra pounds, if you continually rest your hand on her love handles (or even lightly pinch them)..

No comment.

As she awkwardly looks around at all the slender bodies having a great time, she’ll more than likely vow to do something about her recent weight gain.

Absolutely disgusting.

What ignorant cave man wrote this?

I mean SERIOUSLY, pinch her and shame her?

And the comments. This makes me despair for the world at large.

See the article itself is slightly amusing - I know I'm going to be hated for saying that.. I mean, to be honest, when I was reading it I thought it was meant satirically... but then the comments... ?

Those made me think it was for real... which made me go back through, read it again, and that's when I became upset.

If any guy really loved their girl they wouldn't even think of doing these things. Except maybe suggesting dieting together. This is really ridiculous and I found some of them to be quite hilarious to be honest. Losening the screws of her chair? I would rather the guy be upfront about it, so I could dump his ass

The fact that a women wrote these two comments scares the hell out of me:

peaches150 says:
And the eating disorder thing is a lame ass excuse to not tell someone. No one made you have an eating disorder it was your choice, and if someone doing these things sets you off to the point you want to be skin and bones maybe you should get counseling and not blame your boyfriend for wanting to make sure there girlfriend is healty.

peaches150 says:
I am a female and I agreed with this article 100% and I think that a guy would be nice by doing these things instead of calling their girlfriend a fat ass and telling her lose the weight or leave. My husband and I both agreed that any female that is pist off by this article is probably fat as hell

What a sick warped mind she has. I pity her for falling into the trap.

i expect i am not the only one inclined to get a massive immovable pit in my stomach after reading this, so may i share my approach?
i need to just have this attitude towards this kind of thing:
i already know there is ignorance in the world.

for me it is not helpful to spend time arguing about it or seeing it manifest - for others it might be eye-opening to go on this site, but, it's old news. the temptation is to think the world is crashing just that much more swiftly to an end with every occasion that this kind of ignorance is evidenced, with every dumb comment or hurtful ad or offensive policy. but that's not the case. there's ignorance. and my approach to life is to attempt to discourage ignorance by example. i refuse to be disheartened by these people and their blockheadedness, and i will not open their eyes in this context.

glad I was not the only one. The comments were what scared me, though your rise theory is probably accurate... or, my theory, that those guys don't have girlfriends anyway

grumpy lard-ass... hah.

When I was 13 a friend of mine (who's no such thing anymore...) who would probably loved this article, started giving me such "subtle" comments... While in fact I had only gained several pounds, as pre- teen girls do, before getting their period, and which is fucking NATURAL.

Anyways I ended up getting complexed and in the end - losing her at all, because I was so ashamed of her, and of myself, above all.

I hate saying this, but I hope the same happens to whoever the fuck wrote that shit of an article.

Can we have this link blocked off or something? I just find it too offensive to even stand anymore. There's a pretty big fight going on in the comments section because me and my boyfriend made the stupid mistake of trying to challenge that nazi Frank Johnson character and of course now he wants to hunt us down and basically he said "boy are you gonna get it". He wants me arrested when he's the one who called a minor a "fat queer lesbian feminist pig".

Now of course I am living in total fear of being hunted down by Hitler, I mean Frank Johnson because I have no idea what he's capable of and quite honestly I'm scared to death to the point where I really do not want to eat. If I'm hungry it doesn't matter because everything that goes in does not want to stay down.
