People have called me fat since I entered school. It was horrible, then after school I'd go to a daycare where some kids would pick on me
( emotionally like bullying not physical. ) They'd make fun of what I eat and say it was horrible. Now I realize they were really ugly and I was prettier than them. People don't call me fat now, but I'm kinda chubby in my belly and thighs. I still want to lose weight and I still think I'm fat even though people tell me I'm not now. It's hard to build self-confidence when it was torn down in my early childhood.

I don't think that's completely true.

Most of the guys I've met, yes are pigs. But there are some decent men out there to.

Umm...not all guys are caring only about you appearance, but it is part of attraction for guys and girls to put effort into looking good.
The guys your looking at might not be the right ones...just change your searching approach, trust me they DO exist.

this is my opinion
first of all its because us woman (or at least i do )focus on one thing and compare it to others.while im guessing men just look at the whole body and not individually .plus we have the image that u have too be skinny and all that shit...i try to stay positive,though sometimes i have though's days. but im getting use too how i look like im just focusing on staying fit and taking care of my hygiene...and not all girls are insecure i mean in my school there's some girls who are overconfident.

This is a double edged sword, it's not just one swung at women. If anything, and this is an unbiased opinion with no influence of me being male, it's more difficult for a man to be considered good looking than it does for a woman. Females want skinny, all they have to do is eat right and bunny up for a little cardio. Males have to spend hours a day working out to be considered handsome. I used to be 250 pounds, but I lost over 100 of it because of health reasons, not so much the vanity aspect. Personally, I believe whether you're a man or a woman, you should be eating right and exercising, but this is in no way something only female feel. Even now that I'm in the best shape of life, I still look in the mirror and think I need to improve myself or hate that I can't just swallow 8 bags of Skittles in 5 minutes. It's a human thing, not a woman thing.

Sure, if a woman is obsessive about her body it's unhealthy and counter-productive. Any sort of extreme tends to be that way.

But it's not a bad thing, in my honest opinion, for a woman to care about the way she looks and put forth reasonable effort to maintain it.

I think it's important to be a balanced person and not neglect an aspect of your being - whether it's your mind, body, relationships, hobbies, career, etc. It takes a lot of work and time to keep all of them at a good level.

And let's be honest, no matter how badly we might wish the world was less materialistic and superficial, we have to face the reality that there is a role that physical appearance plays in society and our every day lives, we are definitely judged for it, and it's not going away any time soon.

cause we want people to like us.
Other girls to think that we're their "equal" thus treat us equally. Body shape is just like labels...
Don't you always find that there's ONE big girl and a bunch of thin girls in a party group? my friend said that they only keep the lady with the curves cause they want to create an illusion to other guys that they're thinner and more sexy/in shape -.-

Oh and also blame it on shallow guys too

hahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahaha omg hahhahaha i just love this hahaha
anyway *wipes tears*
no matter what anyone says girls are gonna care cuz its for them not us
my mom always said she duz that stuff for herself not for men and guys can try to convince themselves its for them but its for the girls themselves
no matter who u are u hav how u wanna look and its not affected by other people
but i do agree that woman put too much pressure on themselves to look good but thats what society has taught that if u pretty ur happy as a woman and for guys its if u hav money
