I’m so fed up with all the overweight/obese people who go out of their way to make fun of skinny people calling them “bones” and saying that “real men like meat and dogs like bones” and the only reason they say all that is because they know they’re fat and unhealthy and the only way they could feel better about themselves is to put other people down. Instead of working out and eating a well balanced diet they don’t even bother putting an effort into having a healthy body weight and then they blame the skinny people for their own laziness. When will they finally realize that you actually have to put an effort in everything in life, you can’t just sit on your ass all day and eat whatever you want and then say “there’s nothing I can do about it, it’s just the way I am”.
I have nothing against overweight people in general, everybody should live and look the way they want. I can’t care less about their life decisions. But once they start shaming the skinny people for no reason – then it’s a war.
Even in the media and tv they’ve started portraying fat people, that’s it’s ok to be fat..wanna know the truth? IT’S NOT OKAY! IT’S UNHEALTHY! Being overweight causes a lot of health risks, starting with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, increases the risk for several cancers, fatty liver disease…do I need to go on? So tell me how is it acceptable to portray fat people as if it’s totally okay and beautiful? Why not portray people with a normal body weight to inspire underweight and overweight people to look healthy? I don’t think majority of fat people actually understand it, all they care about is finding an excuse to stay fat and not do anything to be healthy.
I’m tall and skinny, been that way my whole life thanks to genetics. I’ve tried gaining weight for a decade – unsuccessfully, and now I just don’t give a shit anymore. I’ve learned to love my body and I guess this is what ticks most people off, to see somebody being comfortable in their own skin, so they have to go out of their way to find reasons to insult you to feel better about themselves.
I’ve never shamed any overweight people, it’s always been the other way around. Fat people go out of their way to let you know you’re skinny but if you dare to say anything about losing weight to them you’ll be condemned for life. How rude of you to tell me to lose weight while I shame you for being too skinny!
There’s also a big difference between skinny and underweight. Being skinny is totally healthy whereas being underweight is not, and this is where most people screw up because they have a contorted view of what is normal and what is not.
All in all, weigh as much as you want but keep your mouth closed about how other people look, it’s absolutely not any of your business. Live your own life and worry about your own body. Go be “big and beautiful” and flaunt your fat rolls as much as you can, but keep in mind that I too can be “skinny and beautiful” and flaunt it off, and if you’ve got a problem with it then look in the mirror and figure it out on your own.
