  • Well, I'm not fat but chubby and my family makes a lot of fun about it. I've learned to live with it but it still bothers me. I don't get offended by being called fat but it does make me very sad sometimes. Especially because I know why I'm chubby. Some people don't understand that overweight people have different reasons for being overweight. Not everyone is fat because they eat burgers and donuts all day long. In fact, I have a more healthy diet than most of my family (because I have an Asian girlfriend, I eat a lot of light Asian dishes with lots of veggies). Back when I was 16, I was super skinny - I mean, suuuper skinny. I was 6'1'' and 125 pounds (as a guy!). Back then people made fun of me because I was skinny (school mates calling me skeleton and stuff like that). However, in the past 10 years I've went through some extremely tough times in my life. I lost all my friends, I was bullied a lot, I was suicidal, I had to fear becoming blind etc.. Unfortunately, my way of dealing with these things was eating. In a way I can be glad because other people start to abuse alcohol or drugs but I was never into these things (I smoke pot but very moderately). Everyone has their own solution, mine seemed to be eating. Nowadays my life is much better again and I am generally a very happy person. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to lose my weight yet. So now I am sometimes being made fun of for being overweight, instead of being skinny. It's really strange... everyone seems to be so obsessed with my weight. In any case... I try hard to take it lightly and I don't get offended but it does make me sad. It makes me sad because people don't want to understand why I gained weight and because they want to hurt me for absolutely no good reason. As a person with a very good heart, this can be very heart-breaking for me sometimes. My grandma always told be kind to everyone and not to hurt other people's feelings for I don't want mine to be hurt either. It's hard for me to understand why some people's life purpose seems to be to make other people sad and break their hearts. Most fat people know they're fat and most of them don't like it. Unfortunately, it's not easy for everyone to change the fact that they're fat. Everyone has their own problems in life. Some have a messed up family, some have to live in a wheelchair and some are overweight. We wouldn't think it's fun to hurt the feelings of the guy in the wheelchair, so why hurt the feelings of the chubby guy.

    • Well my guy is chubby and he is my teddy bear and I love him just the way he is and it just up sets me when people say stupid things like that to him

    • See, that's what I'm saying :-). I think my girlfriend feels pretty much the same as you do and she also sometimes gets annoyed when my family makes fun of me (they don't mean it in a mean way but it can still be very annoying). All these jokes and insults towards overweight people also piss me off because most people who make those jokes think that overweight folks are generally lazy and stupid etc. There's so many stupid stereotypes involved with being fat. A good example how this is not true is my best guy friend. He too, is overweight. Even a little more than me (he's about 6'2'' and 240 pound). However, while he is quite chubby, he's also very fit. He plays soccer every week and in the summer the two of us like to go hiking in the Alps together. I know many skinny people who wouldn't be able to run for 90 minutes straight as he does or do this hiking. He just happens to have a bearish/big built. I'm generally a very tolerant person and I think you should just let people live.

Have an opinion?

  • Eh, When i was obese, and someone called me fat, I would probably just walk home, maybe sit in my room for about 4 or 5 hours feeling like shit, Perhaps not eat anything for 3 or 4 days to try and feel better about myself, then rinse and repeat.

    So yeah, I personaly would take extreme offence from it...

  • Yes. Because the intention of that person calling someone fat, was to hurt and insult that person.

    It's the intent that is offensive. Not hard to grasp and understand (unless that person is blinded by their hatred of fat people).

  • Well if you aren't happy about your weight then you will be o_o

    Its just that "fat" is looked at as negative thing as opposed to skinny in many cases

    Someone not happy about being skinny can be offended when called that if they aren't happy with themselves

  • Are you saying Significant Other? If so, then yes i would be greatly offended if someone called him fat (he's thin but still) . Any sort of negative remarks about my man will surely bring out the hateful nasty beast in me.
