But, Li says, the best option is for users to report inappropriate behavior or fetishization: "This is not the goal of this app, this is not what we're trying to do." And not all people with the fetish can or will be banned; there are plenty of thin people who admire bigger folks on Woo Plus.
For instance, this person's profile uses terminology and size preference usually associated with fat fetishes: No one is judging people with a fat preference; however, the point of this app is for people to find a relationship, not to be fetishized.
As a result, there haven’t been many positive remarks made by plus sized users,” Becky Han, a member of the Woo Plus marketing team, told However, the app has received quite a bit of criticism, especially with one particular aspect: While women must be plus-size to use the app, men don’t have to be, which many feel gives the app a “fetishizing” quality while further categorizing plus-size women as “other.” “For me it feels that instead of addressing the way plus-size women are treated in society – and most certainly on the dating scene – we are having to further separate them,”London-based plus-size blogger Callie Thorpe told .
“Personally I am also not a fan of the term BBW – it makes me feel like I am a fetish purely for men and I’m not comfortable with that. It’s always important to have options when it comes to plus-size dating.” As for the Woo Plus team, they’re insisting that their main priority is creating a safe space.
The app was launched to help “BBW (big beautiful women), BHM (big handsome men), plus-size singles and fat admirers” find love.
“The unfortunate reality is that the current dating environment is very cruel to bigger girls,” the app’s San Francisco-based CEO Neil Raman told Raman got the idea in 2014, when the dating website Simple Pickup conducted a social experiment in which a woman showed up to her Tinder dates wearing a fat suit, eliciting cruel and frustrated responses from her dates.

A year ago I closed out 2015 with some personal updates and I let you know that I’d stopped dating Robert.My biggest complaint of the app is last names appear on profiles.This can lead to people finding you on other platforms, as a fellow journalist had described to me they were doing for their story on the app.I didn't really respond to any, but for the most part it reminded me of the times I have used other dating apps in the past: some were polite, some were crude, some quoted Adele, the usual:.They have filters that crawl for keywords or phrases that usually indicate someone there just for a fetish fling.
