You're Fat! Yeah? What of it?

Y’know what really truly fucking pisses me off??
Women that think it’s the worst thing possble to be a little heavy. Like, that Being too heavy is the most terrible misfortune that could happen to them. Oh it’s SUCH an insult, like fat women can’t be beautiful, or loved, or talented or worthwhile, or ambitious, or sexy. What the fuck. The worst thing you can say to a woman is to imply that she’s fat? The WORST thing? Why? Why is being heavy so bad anyhow? Lots of men prefer a curvy woman.
Now, I’m sure this has been done to death, but I posted this here because I didn’t want to threadshit. And yes, for the record, I’m fat. And you can tell me so.
Thank You.

There’s a difference between curvy and thick.

I grew up around heavy women, like most of the woman I came in contact with would be medically classed as morbidly obese and DD’s were average. Most women since then strike me as too skinny and flat chested.

As long as your health isn’t being put in danger and you’re happy, then be whatever size you like. (I’ll be in columbus the week of christmas…we can barhop! I’ve always been good friends with heavier women)

I would just like to add:

To the beanpole dames in the magazines:
You ain’t it, Miss Thing!
Give me a sister, I can’t resist her
Red beans and rice didn’t miss her

And look what happened - you’re gay! :eek:

Sorry, couldn’t help it.

There’s nothing wrong with being fat, even if it’s by choice. It’s your choice, and I wouldn’t be so naive as to think I’ve got anything over people who make unhealthy choices.

Heh, I guess that is a possible entry in the nature v nurture debate.

Having dated more than a few models I find your use of the label “Thing” a little telling.

Pssst… song lyrics.

I don’t think the calling a real woman is the worst insult.

Try calling a woman a bitch. (One who is not a bitch, but does something that pisses you off, and so persuades to think she is a bitch) This is 1000 times worse. I’ve only used the word on a woman once, and that is the last time I plan to use it.

Calling a woman fat only has to do with their pride. A fat person whom is lazy, careless, and simply gains weight may consider this much less offensive, and maybe even a joke. But for someone who was simply born with the fat gene, it’s a little more offensive.

It seems you are probably the lazy, careless type, and got fat because you always sat around eating Twinkies and playing Warcraft. So me calling you a FAT-ASS shouldn’t be offensive at all. :smiley:

ETA: DAMNIT I was under the impression that you were a MALE. That’s what I get for not reading your username… I guess you can just disregard this then.

Pssst some more…“Miss Thing” is a widely-used joking put-down among gay men, sometimes also used towards women. It has absolutely nothing to do with the women in question being thin or fat.

Get huffy about “beanpole” if you like, but there’s nothing anti-thin about “Miss Thing”.

Agreed. “Miss Thing” is a phrase my friends and I use when someone is acting as if they’re better that everyone else. Weight has nothing to do with it. I’ve never heard it used in any other way but to describe an elitist person, like that Muslim, Barack Obama. He’s pretty skinny, though, even for a Socialist.

Just took another look at my post above. Wow, I think I fucked up in every way possible. JFC!
Anyway. I don’t understand this whole weight issue. Seems pretty stupid to me. It’s all in the public opinion of what looks sexy.

If a magazine says a skinny, toned, C cup female was sexy… then you personally would take it as an insult if someone said you were fat.

If a magazine says a 300lb, giggly, J cup female was sexy… then, I guess you’d be sexy.

1> And you’re stupid. I can lose weight. You can’t fix stupid.

2> Yes, I am. Thanks for noticing. :wink:

3> My, how observant. Do you usually state the obvious?

4> Is this some sudden stroke of insight that you feel you need to share? How long did it take you to figure this out?

5> WHAT??? OH HOLY SHIT! I AM FAT. How the fuck did this happen?

  1. I’m fucking Cheryl Burke on Dancing with the Stars and I am fucking hot and gorgeous and too good for you!

I’m not fucking CB though I wouldn’t mind. It’s an adjective.

Okay, I wanted to pit that loudmouth who spouted shit about Cheryl Burke and some other woman but I don’t remember his name. Google isn’t helping me, but just giving me sites who say Cheryl rocks. And she does.
Cheryl has always been my favorite pro dancer on DWTS and to think that someone calls her fat is laughable. This woman is beautiful and creative and sultry. I hope someday I can be fat like her. Yeah, I wish.
I wanted to start a pit thread but I fe;t I lacked the vitriol. Make no mistake, I will cut a bitch for dissing my girl Cheryl, or anyone over a size 6.

I am I the only one who is utterly shocked that someone could miss a Baby Got Back reference?

No you’re not. When you get to “red beans and rice didn’t miss her” it’s really clear.

I could have identified the song from any of the quoted lines, and I don’t even like rap.

I’ve also noticed that, at least on the boards, while it may be okay with some people for a woman to be overweight, it is never okay for her to have “man hands”. Makes me wonder how the hell I managed to attract and date a number of intelligent, good-looking men before marrying one of them.

Being slightly fat is healthy for you.
