"OMG, why'd you have to say he was black? That's racist!"

I've seen plenty of people mock overweight people for not dieting, saying that they "can't take care of themselves", but I never see anyone say that about thin people, when in reality it is entirely the same. And if a thin person takes steps to maintain a healthy weight, people say "oh, that's good, they're getting back on track". However if they see an obese person taking a jog or working out at the gym, they point and laugh and mock. And what about all of the disgusted views towards obese people, especially women? As if having extra fat means they don't bathe (in reality, having more to wash means they probably spend more time in the shower. Just a thought).

Hmm but maybe you haven't experienced the other side of the coin. I'm pretty thin and have been thin all my life, and I get so much unnecessary flack for it. I've never had a meal where someone hasn't commented about how much I eat. Because I'm thin even if I eat a substantial amount it is presumed that the quantity is less.i generally take two helpings but most ppl will presume that I'm going take just one helping and however much I've put. On my plate for that is all that. I'm going to eat for the whole meal. I feel like I have to justify myself whenever mealtime arrives because ppl will just make comments without even thinking. i get comments like you eat like a bird, are you on a diet, why do you eat less don't you know it's unhealthy, are you trying to compete with supermodels? And you can take it once in a while and just be like hahaha no I eat well ull see! But when u have to hahah heehee about people's **** up assumptions on a daily basis it gets really tiring. Some people may even say these things good naturedly but most ppl are snide with their comments. Why should I be subjected to snide behavior every day because I'm thin? It's the same way on both sides believe me.
