It's okay to make fun of skinny people, but don't you dare make fun of the obese.

    I find it a bit odd that this is okay in society. I get things like "You could gain some more weight" or "It wouldn't hurt you to hit the gym" all the time. You know, it really doesn't bother me, but lately it's been agitating me because it's as if people go out of their way to point out that I have a smaller frame and am not exactly huge. I really don't get it because I know I don't look like I workout unless I have a tight fitting shirt on (or no shirt at all), but I do lift weights, I am strong for my size, and I work hard for everything I do. I'm not exactly huge, yet, but I'm on my own personal journey to get to where I want to be, and it's a shame that other people think it's okay to poke fun at someone who is skinny all the time.

    The real kicker is the people who are saying this are usually already obese, or borderline. BUT WAIT - CURVES ARE SEXY AMIRIGHT GUYS?! Can you imagine if I walked up to a man or woman who was large, and flipped the script. "It wouldn't hurt you to lose a few pounds." Shit would hit the fan, and I would be the real asshole in the situation.

    Honestly, what happened with treating people with respect no matter what. I find life so much more satisfying to lift others up, and not try to point out any shortcomings anyone has (including myself).

    Phew! Just another quality rant from yours truly (haha)!

    I've been called too fat. I've been called too thin. I've sometimes been called both until I took my shirt off, too thin is better.

    Just tell 'em how great your joints feel.

    Just flex your arm in their face. I would make fun of you if that would be your reaction.

    It's okay to make fun of skinny people, but don't you dare make fun of the obese.

    I had the same thought when I was a kid. All my Aunts (who were somewhat "bulky" would say, "You're so thin, you need to eat more!" And I would think that nobody would ever say to them, "You're so fat, you need to eat less!"

    So you make a good point.

    It is strange. Being almost always fat, I always thought thin was perfect, and still do. I'm losing weight again and hope to be thin by the end of the year. I guess being naturally the opposite, I cannot understand why thin would feel bad. I've even joked about swapping thyroids with naturally thin people who don't like it. I guess to the self-conscious, the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.

    Before the fat jokes start, I've heard 'em all. At least make them good so I can laugh!


    Now that I think about it, the last time I was thin, people who were used to me being fat all thought I looked sick, when that was the way I'm SUPPOSED to look. And I still had a small belly to lose.

    Telling someone to eat is not usually meant the same as suggesting someone lay off a meal.

    Generally tho, being skinny is better than being fat.
    Everyone hates a fatty. People LOVE skinny and hot people.
    Usually skinnier people can be hot more easily. There's not many hot fat guys. So, in order to preserve the fatty's feelings....one must avoid openly mocking the fat ass. Rather, to jibe some skinny person or scrawny mofo isn't that deep. . Like it doesn't cut deep. It's just not a serious offense.

    I feel ya. I get comments from time to time about being too skinny. Of course, mostly from people who never hit the gym and could stand to lose a few pounds themselves.

    Nevermind that I know my way around the gym and am probably in the best shape of my life. More so than my Marine years. Pay them no attention.

    Being lean and fit is just as much healthy for you as being big and buff. Do your thing!!!icon_biggrin.gif

    The only people who ever made comments to me about being too skinny were people from "fat" countries like USA or UK. I remember talking about this with a "skinny" american girl in Japan. She told me people would almost harass her in her country, calling her an anorexic and everything. She was happy in Japan that nobody did that.
