5 Reasons NOT to Date a Girl with an Eating Disorder: a Reply to Return of Kings

girls gone wild response to returnofkings article 5 reasons to date a girl with an eating disorder

Nothing is funnier than seeing a bunch of sensitive feminists and politically correct beta males get offended by mere words; especially when the author of those words is a commentator just exercising his right to Free Speech.

Tuthmosis, a writer for Return of Kings, courted the Internet’s ire when he posted an article entitled “5 Reasons to Date a Girl with an Eating Disorder”. The article went viral and crashed their servers after lots of pissed off feminists and eating-disorder-sensitive people alike stormed the site with their outraged comments.

Since Girls Gone Wild is a veritable authority on all things related to hot chicks with daddy issues, we thought we’d weigh in with an alternative view, even though we’ve got nothing against RoK. Their writing is pretty funny/useful, and expresses a unique voice necessary in today’s overly PC/feminist/anti-men world. But with this particular article, we respectfully disagree on all five of their reasons. With that said, here are 5 Reasons NOT to date a girl with an Eating Disorder:

5. Dating her will cost more in terms of time, emotional energy and money for therapy. As RoK pointed out, if she has this disorder, she can have other issues and neuroses as well, and eventually she’ll need costly treatment to deal with that baggage. Sure, she may have “money of her own” but if she depletes that cushion and you’re dating her, you could be on the hook for funds. Last time we checked, the cost of groceries and eating out at good restaurants costs much less than having to go to therapy or rehab, which can easily run in the $1000’s.

4. Dating implies plural meetups with this girl over time, which can eventually lead to a relationship, right? So why would any sane, rational and attractive guy want to have multiple dates over time with a girl who’s got a serious illness that makes her thin, less healthy, and probably not as energetic as a girl who stays fit and has normal, healthy eating habits? Would we film her? Maybe, if she’s cute. Would we have a one-night stand with her? Okay, why not. But date? Thanks, but no thanks. The hottest girls in the world aren’t the ones who are bone-thin and struggling with a debilitating psychological-biological body image problem. If you believe that, then you’re the type of guy who’s into those scrawny, skeleton-revealing runway models who believe that “haute couture” clothes should hang from one’s body. If that’s for you, ok, but that’s really not what we—and most guys we’d wager—find attractive. And no, a hot girl isn’t one who is constantly at the gym working on her six pack and having muscles either. The most beautiful women in the world, in our opinion, are the ones who have feminine curves, who can really fill out a dress with her ample bust and ass, and who is self-disciplined just enough to keep that hour-glass figure through pilates or whatever. In the history of mankind, no dude ever refused a girl because she had some belly fat. The human body, particularly that of women, is supposed to have some fat. That’s natural, and a show of good health. Biologically that fat provides warmth and back-up in case of food shortage. That’s also why skinny chicks tend to be colder to the touch.

3. Sex with a healthy, robust girl—the kind who works out 2-3 times a week, does yoga, or is a dancer—is far, far better than banging a thin, bony anorexic chick who doesn’t eat enough or stay active. That’s because girls who are normal, fit and balanced through doing activities like cheerleading, volleyball, ice skating, etc. have more energy, stamina, and a sexier physique. Just ask yourself, would you rather bang Kate Upton or Kate Moss, if both were compared at the same age level? I think most men would answer Kate Upton all the way.

2. Healthy, natural, fit men who reject the scrawny-runway-model expectation prefer robust women who aren’t “fragile and vulnerable”. We like adventure, traveling, hiking, surfing, rafting, and simply staying active. And we like healthy women who do the same and can enjoy such activities. Dating a sporty, robust woman who a fit and healthy body means you can do more stuff with her (and to her) and she can take it and enjoy it. Dating a girl with an eating disorder sounds like it involves a lot of problems, even when doing simple stuff like going out for dinner because she will refuse to go to places that might “trigger” her desire to overeat. If she’s fussy about something basic like food, she’s probably going to be fussy and OCD about tons of other shit too, which will lead to arguments. Why would you want to deal with that?

1. No but seriously, who wants to date a girl with any disorder to begin with, (unless of course you also have the issue and can relate)? If she’s anorexic or bulimic, that usually means she’s too thin, which is only seen as sexy to people who love the look of those malnourished runway models. If that’s what Tuthmosis and Return of Kings prefers, then hey, to each his own. Not everyone can or wants to date thin supermodels. With that in mind, we’ll keep trucking along in the company of real, natural, energetic, fun and healthy amateur girls who tend to go wild after midnight. Let’s just say we don’t plan to make a Girls Gone Wild: Anorexic Edition any time soon.

Update: Heh, there’s actually an online petition with 9,000 signatures calling for the removal of RoK’s article. Guess the First Amendment doesn’t apply anymore.


Pull up a seat, this is getting good.
