Re:‘You’re too skinny’: Body-shaming in the gay community works both ways

When’s the last time you’ve seen ‘no skinnies’ on grindr? This is a response to the article written by Graham Gremore on Queety.com Mr. Gremore is asserting that skinny guys have it just as hard as larger men in the gay community. I strongly feel that the author is misinformed.

Exhibit A:

This young man is quite skinny and also has no problem talking about what he doesn’t want. This doesn’t seem like someone who’s not getting a lot of attention to me.  Personally I have seen skinny guys showing off their bodies as if they have accomplished something all the time.

In reference to the young man who is 5’8 and 114 in the article. Here is a BMI chart for a health weight range for an adult male.
