Er, how does he know that the woman in the second picture you linked is a white woman with a fake tan and not just... an actual brown woman? I'm confused and also really creeped out he thought it appropriate of him to dissect the appearance of random women on the internet, considering his claims of being more SJW than thou.

What he finds sexy is not something he needs to share and certainly not something he needs to use to shame women who don't conform to his tastes, regardless of whether or not those women are ~ideal~ to a majority of people.

I'm baffled that someone who claims to be a cis white male got away with this on tumblr considering others have been chased out with pitchforks for far lesser crimes.

Because she has tan lines, anon. Everyone knows only white people get tan lines.

Seriously though, he doesn't. Just like he has no clue about her "inactivity". I mean, sure, you can tell she isn't eating 10,000 calories per day and that she isn't a bodybuilder, but beyond that? He's just pulling stuff out of his ass.

I think he got away with it because he was criticizing a thin woman. It took a good long while before people starting pushing back against "thin shaming" on tumblr. It was once considered "punching up" and was pretty acceptable.

Seriously! My immediate impression was that the photo was of a WOC.

And also that she has a perfectly normal body. I mean, look, nobody should be body shamed, but that's not a photo of an emaciated woman. That's a perfectly normal, albeit thin, body.

Seriously, seriously skeevy. And one of the few times I wish tumblr SJWs woulda jumped down somebody's throat.
