Yeah, Weddingbee is getting ridiculous with the double standards. I am so over it

The simple fact that there is a “Special” section for “Full-Figured” women invites discrimination right off the bat.

How are “Full-Figured” brides different than ANY other bride?  This is exactly what the implication is!  If you’re a “Full Figured” bride, you’re not a “normal” bride!

Yes.  I would like a “athletic” section as well.  We should also have a section for women with larger noses and small feet. 

Sound ridiculous?

So is a section for “Full-Figured” women.

Wow, I didn’t know that was going on. It absolutely sucks. The internet gives you balls for sure, but this should always be a place free from critism and judgment over other girl’s bodies.

Whoever is doing this, you are a true blue ass. Sorry to say.

@ViaMinorViator:

If some women identify themselves as “full-figured” and enjoy having a special section, then what is the harm? To answer your joke question, if some women identify themselves as “larger nose” or “small feet” and want to have a section for that, then why should we not?

I hate society sometimes.  Especially when things like this happen.  It makes me wonder if these women’s significant others have any idea of who they are REALLY marrying.

Life is too short for nonsense.  People don’t have enough of their own real life problems that they have to go around trying to make people feel badly about themselves?

It is a little disappointing that nothing has been done to stop this kind of hatred.  The only thing we can do is make it clear that on an individual level, it isn’t acceptable.  Use Bully Rules!

@Lemma: And does everyone else, in your opinion, just get to be “normal”?  My point is that singling people out is doing nothing but drawing attention to the fact that they are not “normal”.  Why can’t everyone be “normal” instead of being labelled with something else? This is how bullying starts, and separating people from the “norm” is an open invitation for abuse.

@ViaMinorViator: No, nobody is normal. “Normal” is a descriptor with no value or real meaning to it. Everybody identifies themselves a certain way, so I don’t see any reason against letting people group themselves if it makes them happy.

Look at the faith section. It has many different types of faiths and does not imply that if one is not mentioned, it is “normal”.

@Lemma: You just made my point!  Normal is subjective!

@ViaMinorViator: Yes, I think we agree in basic concepts but disagree with how things should be implemented. To me, it’s nice to be able to have smaller groups where similar minded people can talk. The fact that we get to sort ourselves into the groups makes descrimination less of a worry. To me, the inclusion of a full-figured group doesn’t imply that anybody who doesn’t think they belong to that group is “normal”.
