Seconded. There's such a double standard in society - you're meant to want to be super-skinny, yet embrace fat. Jealous, much?Love all quotes that give overweight girls a reality check, but I love this even more because it speaks of respect and not just righteousness.
thats so bad! i have a 'friend' who gained probably about 4 stone in 4 years, but all she does is drink drink drink, and most days she will eat up to 9 pieces of bread! a sandwich for her is a snack....When I say socially acceptable, I mean a trend in the amount of people who think saying these things is ok. No doubt that doesn't necessarily make it ok but there sure is a double standard with calling someone fat vs skinny.
I remember at one of my previous workplace's a girl called another employee 'overweight' and was fired for bullying. The girl she called overweight was constantly pointing out to the skinnier employee's that they were 'so skinny and emaciated'. I mean what the hell, how is that not bullying too?! How are they different.
hear hear! haha. i know not to say anything to my friends about losing weight because they jsut tell me im being an idiot. i get told to gain weight, so surely that means i can tell my larger 'friends' to lose it? nope. youre right, you do feel narcissistic and its stupid. its our bodies we can do what we want? gahhhI would love to freely talk about my skinny plans and losing weight and reaching my goals, but that's called narcissism.
Yet, those with "curves" and big mouths can give me attitude about their "comfort" at their weight (I put it in quotes, because I don't think knee pain and constantly out of breath would be classified as comfortable by any means). They can tell me I'm wasting away. That's called healthy body image.
I say, let's all just play nice. I won't say a damn thing about your flabby bits if you don't say a damn thing about how I should eat a cheeseburger.
Seems pretty fair. OR...we all get to just say what's on our minds and let the chips fall where they may.
