Girl with no body criticized for taking too many selfies

girl with no body selfieAmanda Moore was born without arms, legs, or a torso. While her life has been a struggle, Amanda likes to think she’s made the best out of her medical condition. Last year, Amanda decided to join the popular dating app, Tinder.

“I thought it would be fun,” said the torsoless, Amanda. “All of my friends were joining, and I thought I might meet the man of my dreams, who might have an affinity for bodiless people. So I had my friends take a few quick photos and I joined.”

Amanda thought wrong. Instead of finding the man of her dreams, she was berated for only taking selfies.

“People got mad when they couldn’t see the rest of my body, like I was trying to trick them or something, but the thing is, I don’t have a body. If I did, I would take pictures of me doing things other people with bodies like to do; you know, running, walking, using my hands to eat various food items, or even high-fiving a friend.”

Many of Amanda’s Tinder “matches” said they thought her face was pretty, but were skeptical when she wouldn’t show the any other body part.

One male subscriber said, “She looked really cute, so I asked for a photo of her doing something fun, and she said she couldn’t because she ‘didn’t have a body.’ I was like ‘shit girl, that’s fine, you don’t have to be a model or anything, just show me what you like to do.’ But she just kept sayin’, ‘I don’t have a body, I don’t have a body.’ That’s when I unmatched her.”

Amanda said she’s surprised that most people don’t understand her predicament because she plainly states in her bio that she is “just a girl with no legs, no arms and no torso, looking to have a good time.”

“People think I’m joking, or that I’m some girl with a witty sense of humor, but I’m just describing my life.”

Amanda has since deleted Tinder and joined Christian Mingle stating, “There are all kinds of people on there looking for a human head.”

  1. gh0stpupp3t, I agree. Our society is out of control. No one can agree on who should run the country, and we have these things like Tinder that just promote superficial judgement. Who gave anyone the right to judge people like that? If you don’t have a body, or appendages, and you’re cool with it, more power to you! I commend this brave, brave woman.
