WooPlus, Tinder For Plus Size Singles, Minus The Fat Shamers

It doesn’t matter if you’re slim, doesn’t matter if your slightly plump, doesn’t matter if you’re slightly overweight, doesn’t matter if you’re taller than your last boyfriend, if you’re a woman, you would have encountered body shaming, fat shaming, or plain vanilla shaming for just being – a woman. What is it with men and their d*cks? Do they think it gives them superhuman powers or something? That they resort to looking down on perfectly healthy women who don’t conform to society’s definition of a perfect body? That they resort to fat shaming perfectly beautiful women tell them off for being themselves? What gives them the right to do so – their d*cks? If such men think so, then they’re the D*CKS!

To counteract such fat shaming on popular dating apps, a new dating app was launched. Called WooPlus, it wants to create a safe dating platform for women where they can be themselves, without fat shamers to bring them down.

WooPlus works similar to Tinder, in that a user can anonymously ‘like’ or ‘pass’ on a profile, and once there is a mutual ‘like,’ the two matched users can start interacting.

WooPlus hopes to help ‘BBW (big beautiful women), BHM (big handsome men), plus size singles, and admirers of curvy individuals’ to find their suitable matches, on a platform that is non-discriminating.

According to WooPlus, it’s purpose is twofold. One, helping plus size individuals a safe dating platform, and two, tackling a sensitive social stigma that has essentially made such individuals a marginalized part of society, just because they possess atypical body types.

The new dating app, WooPlus, is based out of San Francisco, California, and Neil Raman is its CEO. He said,

“The unfortunate reality is that the current dating environment is very cruel to bigger girls. My sister experienced this herself. It was very painful and unfair. I decided to solve this problem and create an app just for big girls.”

The site explains: “We are committed to proving that human beings are a lot more than their size. And we do so by helping plus size singles have a shot at finding the right kind of companionship.

“So, all you big girls and big guys tired of rejection, WooPlus offers you a chance to find compatible partners you can befriend, date, have long-term relationships with or even marry.”

One distinctive feature of WooPlus is its intolerance towards fat shamers on it. It has a specific policy against fat shamers, including permanent bans on those who make belittling comments on another user’s appearance.

Another interesting feature is its Instagram-like feed where a user can share their life moments in pictures, which is another opportunity for members to get to know one another, or use them as conversation starters.

The app is a great idea, but we’ll have to wait and watch how well it will take hold in the fickle world of online dating.
