    I come from being overweight so I remember how being called fat was one of the most terrible things ever for me.
    But now that I'm older..and actually have been called "skinny
    " I was like WTF .. so I'm. Guessing its the same affect on either side of the weight scale icon_sad.gif all you hard gainers or ectos agree?

    It depends on the sentiment of the name caller.

    On one hand, after being called fat names all my life, I rather enjoyed being called skinny. However, hearing people make comments that I looked better fat was hard.

    I learned that it wasn't about them, it was about me and how I felt about myself. If I was happy then fuck the rest of them.

    Skinny when used particularly in reference to a guy has a bit of a pejorative connotation.

    Also in America the term is a bit warped as it is generally used by overweight people to describe people that are a healthier weight.

    I get called skinny more often than I'd like. For someone who spends a lot of time lifting weights, I'd like to think there's a bit more to me than "skin and bones" as the term implies.

    you see I think of skinny as unhealthy skin and bones. People use it to be mean which was my original question

    I play football twice a week, bet that's more that can be said about you and your fake picture kiwi. Go seek therapy.

    I hate being skinny. I have been since my teens and hated it. I have a high metabolism and I was often bullied because of it just as a fat person would be.

    I am still embarrassed and shy about it even though I'm trying to gain weight.

    I'm also a hard gainer. I have been called skinny all my life.

    I exercise hard and eat healthy to gain weight, and it's slowly yielding results.

    I used to get sad when, I saw my skinny self. But then read about the all the different types of bodies and how to work with them. So, now people usually don't call skinny, but if someone does, I feel happy.

    Wikipedia: In shan't (for shall not), the /l/ sound is dropped, and the vowel changes (in RP, from the /æ/ or weaker /ə/ of shall to the /ɑː/ of shan't). This contraction is not common in American English. It evolved from "shalln't", and was formerly written "sha'n't".


    Yes, I know the meaning for 'shan't', the word I posted.

    It was 'Shalln't' that you posted, that needed the explanation. It hasn't been used since the English middle age apparently.
