"Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat."
When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”

“Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
That’s it. That’s it right there.
Novelist Jennifer Gilmore, whose new book — The Mothers — is based on her own experiences of trying to adopt a baby, talks to Terry Gross about the necessity of ‘selling’ oneself in order to appeal to a birth mother:
Of course, we thought, ‘These babies need homes. And we’re helping these babies have happy homes.’ That didn’t turn out to be the case. There are not as many babies as there are parents who want them. So you realize it is quite competitive. You join a pool of people, and it’s sort of a business out there now, a booming one. And there are more people who want babies than can be satisfied.
So what happens is, whatever route you take, whether you write this profile, you put it online, whether you do it privately, you’re sort of saying, ‘This is who we are as a couple’ or ‘We have this big ranch house’ or ‘We love museums’ or ‘We love soccer, we love children, we have nieces and nephews, and here are pictures of us with children.’ My husband and I made a pact when we started this that we were never going to misrepresent ourselves or lie about who we were. We live in New York; we live in a fourth-floor walk-up, so the rest of the country is confused by that.”
