and I mentioned pubescence because I think that's what gave me curves to a small frame.

I was raised with a very small framed petite woman as my mother
She wore kids sizes until she was way into her 40s.
She finally takes a regular size.....

So I know what very tiny people have to go through.

I also know from my past experience being a size 14 and beyond,
And having plus sized friends what they experience.

Basically the clothing sizes are 0-12
And that being said, if you have hips/bust or a butt you are screwed.

The easiest sizes are 0-4.


And people are MEANER to big people.
Small people do get mean people as well (jealousy)
But overall, the real bigotry is towards large sizes.

Especially if they're fat themselves and get mad when the "hot" ones don't want them. Nothing strange about that at all.

I think we can all agree that fat people get treated differently because of their size, and its wrong to do that. I think the OP was talking about fat being unattractive in relation to dating and and physical attractiveness.

many will say you're unhealthy an anorexic. Or bullimic if they see you eat claim you exercize your butt off when you've never done so in your life....
people are jealous. And watch your every move. People ask if you have a worm in your stomach. Drs talk to your mom who's the same weight as you and ask if you're anorexic. And if you do have an overeating disorder no one gives a damn. They actually encourage it by their behavior.


and also when you're thin like my mom and I you can't fit clothing right. You've got no dress size. Your dress size is in the kid's department size 10 or 12. And those dresses aren't design for female figures. You're more screwed being this small than a plus sized woman in the clothing department. If you're lucky you get clothing you can fit your figure they can look nice. But that's if. Likely this country is made more and more to accept big and isolate small people.
Ah, being skinny isn't all that bad. Sure, the word 'anorexic' gets thrown around a bit and this is one of the rare times I think the people spewing hateful words really are jealous, but for me I ultimately hear more words of admiration than anger or accusation. I did once have a girl ask me if there was something genetically wrong with me that made me so tall and skinny, but I don't think she was trying to be cruel, she just couldn't fathom someone naturally looking the way I do.

It does bother me that others are allowed to make specific comments about how skinny I am but I can't say anything back. Just yesterday, I was showing my coworkers the bathing suit pic I posted in What did you wear today? because they were asking about how the event went. While most complimented my figure, one looked at it and said "Oh, you need to put some meat on those legs. I know you're skinny but jeez, you're all bones!" I wanted to reply that she had more than enough meat for the whole room, but just told her I was fine the way I am. It's A-Okay for someone to express a desire to shove food down the throat of a skinny person, but tell an overweight person to slow down on the twinkies and it's like you just uttered a racial slur.

I was talking about very skinny not just medium thinor high thin

my mom has had work issues because of people like that...
and it's not just fat people it's skinny people too especially ones who diet. Like in her own family they always wanted to think she starved herself. It's like torch that gets passed on generation to generation.

I don't think it's any different if not I think most overweight people have more people to relate. While it seems that population that's tiny in America is barely in existence so them being an outcast besides in hollywood is almost obviously likely.

This is why very heavyset men can't have kids as well as if they were skinny. So why is it wrong to say a women is fat? If it's a feminine trait? Especially if she has good curves... Which usually come hand in hand. There are othershapes and sizes that are nice like slim and curvy delicate rulers/bananas. And many more. It seems to me the female body is pretty versatile in how it can be nice. Also like it's always where men with fat on their faces lose masculinity while women keep and gain feminine features. Likeive seen pretty fat women. And not the same with guys... So why is being fat a bad thing for women? If it actually itself means feminineness? Shouldn't it be something they're proud of just like any other shaped women? Even tall column can be proud of being held high in some modeling businesses. Why is it though fat is a bad word when it comes to female anatomy? If i were fat i'd be proud for the assets and not the fallthroughs...
lololololol keep telling yourself that.

90% of all guys don't want fat chicks and don't consider fat attractive.
