But my sister didn’t share this video on her Facebook page to garner laughs from her friends and family.It was quite the opposite, actually: my sister was angry at the round’s subject and the subsequent answers given.

This myth is much less often applied to skinny or “fit” men, unless of course that person is known to have money or power.

But it’s much easier for people to understand two skinny/traditionally attractive people being together because they’re attracted to each other than when a skinny/traditionally attractive person chooses to be with a fat man for other, less superficial reasons.

About a month ago, one of my sisters tagged me in a video she recorded of Family Feud—a game show where two families compete for a cash prize by trying to find the most popular answers to a variety of questions.

On the episode of the daytime game show she recorded, host and comedian Steve Harvey asks the contestants to answer a rather loaded statement: “Name a reason a woman might decide to be with a chubby [or fat] man.” This, as one might imagine, ends up being a rather humorous round for the contestants, Steve Harvey, and the audience.

In some ways, this myth is contradictory with another myth that claims fat men only want to be with traditionally attractive people.

Primarily, though, it’s important and unfortunately necessary that fat men will be attracted to a wide variety of people of all shapes and sizes, and the same goes for fat women.

The fact that this myth is the most popular of the 6 given answers—34 of the 100 people originally surveyed gave this or a similar answer—is troubling in and of itself.

This myth is something we see play out throughout the various facets of American culture, whether it’s movies or politics or pop culture.

This blatant objectification of fat men’s bodies is the result of what the above myths have done to remove any other positive aspects of what we think of when we look at fat men.

The only redeeming quality our culture puts forth for fat men—if they aren’t rich or powerful, and not even 100% of the time—is that they’re like fluffy teddy bears as opposed to, you know, human beings with other desires.

If a classically attractive person of any gender is with a fat man, the general assumption is that this fat man has to have money, or some sort of power otherwise.
