i think most people cap on fat people just because it's more socially acceptable to do so.


I actually agree with that very much so..although i knock on the majorly obese ones mearly because to me IMO they are highly unappealing visually. I just feel as though i should have to be subjected to seeing such things

Trevor (OP)


my friends call me the mammoth, shamu, killer whale, manati, and yea the list goes on :p funny thing is, most of them are larger than i am. damn this one time (at a fashion show thing my class did with the ricky martin foundation) i was walking and two of my friends yelled from above "cuanta gente cabe dentro de alejandra? ninguna porque ba-llena!" (translation: how many people fit in alejandra? none because she's ____) btw "ballena" is whale in spanish, which can also be heard as "va llena" which is spanish for full. i had no choice but to laugh, because although ive had many insecurities im aware im not huge. im 5'3" and weigh 130, which i consider average really.

Dude, please calm down. I think I am fat myself just to let you know. No, I never have been discriminated because of my girth (my sister has made fun of me, but I say she just has problems), and no I do not discriminate against fat people. To answer your "real question," I don't really think people hate fat people. I know people much heavier than that and they are really good people. What they might really hate, are people actually portraying the stereotypes.


Trust me, you may not hate but there are others who hate our guts...but Im letting it be a prob...Got a phrase from Queen Latifa the other day in a movie.."Fat people don't have a problem. It's the skinny people who have a problem with fat."
That movie kinda boosted my self esteem..I was feeling a bit depressed because I was staying with this lady and her fam for 2 months (husband and wife knew me since I was a baby) and they keep making me feel so bad. In more ways than one.
I try everything I can afford to try. I even play netball, walk and jog at nights. Crap man!! cant they get off my back?

Right now I dont give a rats ass who doesnt like me...I still love you...I was born fat **my mom says so** both sides of my family are fat **Im not trying to find an escuse >_>** and if I keep getting emotional each time someone makes me feel bad, I'll never learn to love my self. >_>

:phew: Thanx for the thread...it felt good to vent ^_^


I like that quote. But don't forget I am fat too.
And why do people rag on others? Maybey they have insecurities about thmeselves, so they go after people whom if they were to be made fun of, make them feel superior.

There is not anything wrong with a person who is obese.
but it's not healthy at all. People who are obese need to take care of their bodies more. (yes, that means exercising and eating healthy). The choices you make for your body today will affect you 5, 10, or even 20 years from now. So make good decisions in your life :]

Everyone: This thread isn't about me, it's about the assholes whom hate the overweight for no fucking reason.

I know I'm not physically attractive and I really don't care, it's not the god damn point. I just want to know why the assholes hate us.


There are assholes out there, no doubt. But they tend to hate everyone due to their own shortcomings and insecurities. Now, It's hard for me to take my own advise, but don't let it bring you (or anyone) down. I know this thread is not about you, but you just said you are not physically attractive. When I read your pro..5'11'' 230, long brown hair... I'd be on you if it wasn't stat rape.

Once again, I know I'm not even the one to talk, I'm getting a boob job for my own insecurities, and it is in fact because of assholes. They're there, and all we can do is realize it's just all bull coming from their mouth.

Don't hate you, but like Dusterbayala said, I'm not attracted to you (sry no manlove jay).

I ask two things:
1) you realize the actual state of affairs. I know you laugh it off often, and thats all well and good, as long as you also understand things and take them seriously as well. You are indeed what you are on the outside, though the "inside" is more important.
2) you try to do something about your condition. Its a health concern.

Why do other people hate people like you? A more complicated matter, and one im not qualified to answer. People don't need much reason to hate.

if u think about it if it's it not size of people, it's race, or social status.. there's too many things to list.

Posted 6/26/07
i don't mind fat people, i just wonder about really obese people- mainly, how did they get that way?

You shouldn't get them. It just promotes vanity, and you are letting those a***holes win. I'm sure you are fine the way you are. Oh, and I love your avatar Eros. But, I digress.
The most important thing is if you like yourself. Trust me, I tried it, and you feel much happier. But that doesn't mean I don't know where I stand on the attraction scale. Kind of an oxymoron, but you guys know what I mean right?

ok, at my school we have skinny, average, and bigger people, I happen to be a average person and it seems like everyone is making fun of me, I'm really tall and they only think that if your less than 100 lbs your average, I weigh 120 lb and they happen to make fun of me a lot even though it's like I'm 6 inches taller than everyone. I know some bigger people and their really nice and I don't really mind that they are bigger than some people cause it seems like skinny people at my school hate everyone. Hehe anyway, I don't get called names and stuff but whenever I tell someone my weight they just stare at me like i'm as big as a house. It makes me mad too but i'm not going to try to skip on meals or anything. If I want to loose weight i'll just start eating better, I already play a lot of sports.

I totally agree with the insecurities statement.

i personally think people make fun of fat people cause if they try to be nice they are made fun of and its a never ending circle of being afraid of what will happen if you dont hang out iwth some one who is "hot or cool"
