And if we get down to it, I actually see more skinny women than fat women around me.
Edit: Awww, sowee I don't want to argue on the internet But hey, there are people here willing to so go ahead, amuse me
I do eat healthy by eating plenty of fruit and I also do things for mental/emotional health because I have depression and ADHD.
And I just now remembered something pretty awesome someone once told me "If someone's watching you eat then they're the ones with the problem. Not you" or something of the sort. I try to remember that now if I ever eat out
doesn't make it any more healthy though... too skinny and too fat means unhealthy...
its not wrong for the popular beauty to be on the slender side. that's the look of peak health in the human body.
notice I said LOOK. the person can still have problems of all sorts, or is on the verge of a health downfall.
people these days... :l if you exist, you're real. lol
I notice this stamp is kinda old, but people are probably still gonna come around...
It's in fact the only soap that makes me itch, even the cheesiest brands don't do that
I think I understand what you mean, and I know you don't need it explained back to you but i'm going to post it so maybe people who didn't get it will read this and understand. but if I don't please tell me if you feel like bothering.
Fat people are not more real than skinny people. Skinny people are not more real than fat people. everyone is real, and everyone looks a different way, so any way they look is real. some are inclined to look one way or the other naturally and either is beautiful, real, and should not be exalted nor debased compared to the other.
Eating disorders go both ways. Medical conditions go both ways (I've got a friend with PCOS and the aforementioned friends - two sides of the same coin). People who eat when stressed/don'teat when stressed and are in situations that put them in a constant stress state exist. People who just eat too little/too much exist. It's all chill. Be who you are. If your doctor says gain/lose some weight, listen to them, doctors are smart.
Tl;dr: Weight's kind of insignificant, even for people who weigh like they do because of choices and not because of intrinsic traits.
Lots of people on the Internet think that my tall, skinny characters look "disturbing", when I don't intend them to be. One of the reasons for why my OCs are always either thin or average is because fat people are difficult for me to draw. I don't want to insult anybody.
You can be fat and be real, but being fat in itself doesn't make you more real than being skinny, and vice versa.
I have a hyper skinny friend, she's naturally slim and some of the abuse she gets is appalling.
A friend of mine who's on the larger side took to posting these 'real women have curves' images and it's just plain annoying to read because it's crap, a woman is no more real because she has curves.
I'm not saying that skinny shaming isn't bad, it's just not as much as a serious issue.
I just want you to refrain from responding, because I won't reply. I'll say that immediately, saves you time.
If you call that "discard it and go on with your life, then yes. I don't care for arguments, and certainly
not insulting ones. And one with you will be, judging from your previous argument.
And, it is a fact that both fat men and women face more discrimination.
When air-traveling, most larger people are made to pay for an extra seat, or kicked off the plane all together. I've yet to see that happen to a skinny person.
People assume that someone's being fat is their own fault, but sometimes that's not true.
I'm fat, and yet I eat healthy and I exercise regularly.
When I was younger, people would actually take my food AWAY from me because, apparently, they thought I ate too much, when I actually don't eat that much at all. Kids would beat me up and exclude me from their clicks or whatever they call them because I was 'fat'.
If that's not worse than being called anorexic, then I'm not sure what is.
When I think of Skinny-Shaming(which isn't right by the way)
I think of Harsh comments every now and then. It might also be
"bigger people" who had enough of "fat shaming" and wanted to attack, but I think they did it wrong.
anyway, I think the "fat" thing has a much wider attack
because, for one, some people are called fat, even when THEY HAVE THE PERFECT RATIO BETWEEN SIZE AND HEIGHT! They are perfectly healthy!
on the other hand, if you're like me, and I am a big girl, I eat close-to-nothing all day (which is more or less my fault, but thats not the point) and when I eat I DO eat I eat a lot, and depending on how hungry I am, I eat kinda rushed, but I am afraid to eat around people, cause they just give me this look, so I always eat less when I am around people, BUT THEN I AM STILL HUNGRY!!!
(now that I read through it, its actually a funny predicament, I got myself into)
sorry for rambling on , I tend to do that a lot. heh heh
