Maybe in a different reality or time this would be accepted but right now people are outraged over a Dutch Television game show in which male contestants were asked to guess whether young women were pregnant – or just fat. Yes. You read that right.

The game show, titled Neem Je Zwemspullen Mee (or Bring Your Bathing Suit), screens on the Dutch network NPO 3. According to Allure, it’s advertised as a celebrity game show, but the er, games, are somewhat questionable, particularly if you happen to be pregnant, or a woman, or heck, a human.

The first episode which screened last week included the truly hilarious (that’s sarcasm by the way – never can tell in print) segment dubbed Fat or Pregnant. During this segment men were asked to guess whether a slightly curvy woman was A) Fat or B) Pregnant. Oh the lols.

 HONEY Fat or preg

Later, the men were asked to analyse a woman’s breasts (okay – ogle) and then announce whether the women’s breasts were natural or that she had undergone breast augmentation.

Not surprisingly the game show has been torn to shreds on social media where pundits gathered to share their outrage and disgust.

The show was referred to as ‘disgusting’, ‘appalling’ and as ‘a new low’.

All of which were fair calls frankly. Just because this sort of thing occurs on the streets and regularly, does not mean that it’s okay. It’s offensive, it’s demeaning and by including segments such as these it’s simply normalising what is in truth vile, derogatory behaviour.

Oddly the creators of the show have been unable to grasp why so many viewers have insisted that they shut it down and immediately.
