from your profile pic i would say your more on the chubby side than "fat" i dont see double plus chins.
Well I've come out of the mobidly obese category and into regular obese after losing 24kg so I'm still fat but working extremely hard on it
Tick and fat are very different derrrrr bud!!!
At least you aren't denying reality. Good luck on your weight loss journey to be a slimmer, healthier you.
Oh. That's nice.

They can call themselves spot don’t mean their my dog...
And... what exactly is the magical line between being "chubby" and being obese.
@Posterboy56 truth is , most Americans have no problem with chubby people or folks who are 10-20 lbs overweight or people who carry their weight very well. When Americans call someone fat, they are usually thinking about a VERY overweight or obese woman size 16+.
For normal nice people fat is fat... for assholes and fat women fat is an insult... we gotta stop being so fucking sensitive...My contract with a woman is you keep healthy and I’ll be attracted... too let yourself go and I’ll let you go. I mean it’s fair if I’m not attracted to you and your okay with that choosing not to try and change when you could then ide say oh well.
@VanillaSalt yea well guess what? Most people don’t have flat bellies nowadays. And most folks have no problem being attracted to people a few pounds overweight. I have seen many folks have no problem getting dates being a few pounds overweight. It’s really not as big of a deal that the media likes to overblow.
@VanillaSalt and “change” is not as easy as you think it is. If so, the diet industry wouldn’t be a billion dollar industry. Let’s see you gain 50 pounds then try to lose it
Lost 7lbs in 3 weeks... while working 60 hours a week... I’m okay with a few extras actually I look for it... hate anorexic just like fat...
@VanillaSalt I don't know why media likes to overblow a couple of lbs you may have overweight. Most people have some sort of belly fat nowadays.
Look I like heavier women that are “fat” in the right areas... for women 20-30% BMI is my type.
@VanillaSalt different people like different body types. Don’t think you’re the ultimate judger of beauty
@VanillaSalt reality is 70 percent of all men have no problem with a bit of fat. Of course then there are those who are fat phobicx different people like different things
Ya but beyond 30% is just fat. I don’t like that it’s unhealthy for her and having kids.
@VanillaSalt i would say that if u less than 30 lbs overweight , you’re fine.
Not if you 4’6”
@VanillaSalt no it’s pretty much the same. For example 4’6 average weight prob is 80 lbs. so unless if you’re over 110 then it won’t be a problem. If u r 5’4” average weight prob is 120-130. Unless u r over 160 then your weight would be a problem. But keep in mind that there r also lots of people who look thinner than how much they weigh. Some people have a lot of muscle on them
"yea well guess what? Most people don’t have flat bellies nowadays"Uhh... yeah maybe that should change.
@Posterboy56 it’s very hard when most people work sedentary jobs nowadays. Supermarkets are filled with foods overloaded with sugar. It’s hard to grab a meal out when everything affordable is fast food. We live in. A country where fast food and fat is advertised everywhere. It’s not China or New Zealand
Yes, it certainly is hard, and takes dedication and a few small sacrifices. I suppose we should all just be making better choices, no?
I think it’s ok for people to be a little overweight. No biggie.
Not everyone have the luxury of working out everyday. We all have life’s stressors Ans responsibilities. Some of us have busier lives than others. We are not all on equal footing. Many of us don’t even have enough time to cook. Some of us are born with genes that make us heavier
Well... sadly, the "average weight" is indeed fat, because so many people are fat. At least in America.
Alright average looking...
Ohhh I see PLENTY of fat white girls and fat Asian girls calling themselves "thick" or whatever else rather than just unattractively fat.
Well it originated from black women. But yeah, they do now
... Because things that are factually incorrect, used in an attempt to gloss over reality rather than knuckling down to change the hard things about oneself that a person may not like (and justifiably so), is dumb.
I mean sure, you can totally view it this way, but personally I don't really find it bothersome so I guess it's not that deep for me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I do understand how it could be frustrating, though!
It's not different.
No I don't mean like that.From what I've seen, generally a body figure like Kim Kardashian or Salma Hayek is called thicc. Basically thick is supposed to mean voluptuous, not fat.
Yeah, it in theory should, but it doesn't. Because females like ^ this chick up there, and millions like her, call themselves "thick."
Yeah that photo isn't thick. Neither is it as some people call, big boned.Like I don't see why people are so afraid of the word fat. Probably because of the negative connotation society places on it.
The "negative connotation that society places on it" exists because no one wants it. What are you talking about? "Society" does not exist as its own entity-- WE are society. Everyone is society. If society thinks and does a thing, or not, it is because millions of individual people think or do that thing, whatever it is. "Society" has a negative view of fatness because no one wants to be fat, including fat people. If we all had a magic wand to wave and make ourselves young and fit and attractive forever and ever, we'd do it-- but we don't. Losing weight is hard and takes effort, which is why people don't do it. But the "negative connotation" didn't just magically appear from the sky one day, man.
Yeah obviously, the negative connotation was placed by us, we people deemed it bad. Now in terms of health, yes, obesity is bad. But beyond that, generally people having a bit of fat isn't really a big problem. So personally I don't really care about it.I've always found losing weight pretty easy
But then again, they're free to call themselves however they like. How does it matter to us. Let them do what makes them happy, everyone deserves that.They're not really hurting anybody else by calling themselves that.
Yes, it does impact everyone. Language, and the way we use it, matters.
No it doesn't
... Uh, yes. It does.
So if i could go to the doctors all of sudden they'll say im getting "thick" instead of fat or getting overweight. No they're going to keep it professional and tell me the facts no sugar coating. Fat people calling themselves thick doesn't change anything its almost a synonym to fat. So it really doesn't impact you unless you let it. And that's not really my problem or anyones elses except yours.
... It matters because the term "fat" is supposed to be a negative, and it is. If someone doesn't want to be fat, they should probably take the necessary steps to get slimmer and healthier, rather than just misappropriating language. Which won't make them thinner.
So someone deciding they don't wanna be called fat ( which you've said is a negative word ) but an alternative word ( which isn't negative ) is a problem for you because they are fat? . . . ummm sir ok. . ok- umm does it really concern you, like at all. I mean like. . does it"It matters because the term "fat" is supposed to be a negative" Firstly no, it's supposed to be a descriptive word its not necessarily negative. "misappropriating language.” If there's someone unattractive I should straight up call them ugly. What if I see someone with dwarfism should I call them a little person or midget? Sure these are synonyms but to you it's misappropriating language and we wouldn't want that. We want everyone to feel like shit for being themselves.
Hi. Do you know what a "logical fallacy" is?
Yes and wht u commented has nothing to do with what I said I answered your question and that’s all have a nice day
So, logical fallacies take many forms, you can read more about them here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy#Informal_fallacyI think you just committed one that is strange variation of the "relevance" fallacy, or something like it. A person's ability to do a bad or stupid thing does not justify its doing, merely because they can. For example, if you walked into the room and witnessed me smashing my face into a wall until it bleeds, and you asked me "oh hey, why are you doing that? Doesn't it hurt?" and my response was "I can do it if I want to," that isn't a logical response to your question because it doesn't address what you asked. Also, doing something illogical in itself-- smashing my face into a wall, or in this case, calling myself "thick" rather than fat, even though fat is what I am-- isn't really logical either, and then defending that irrationality with further irrationality is just pretty sad.Anyway, hopefully that Wikipedia article can teach you something. Good luck!
I’m not gonna read that whole paragraph I was already done with this convo😝 so have a nice day hun !!!
Buh bye then!
No idea who that even is.
She’s a woman from reality show lmao
Oh I just saw her on Google is all.
I figured lol
Better to be honest , kudos
It is definitely. No sense in kidding oneself.
I know. It's dumb. This was a rhetorical question.
I know. It was rhetorical.
Uh, is that a thing?
I see. Welp, don't know, since monetary income and body fat percentage aren't related. Can't comment on that.
But the fundamental is the same. Some people (men and women) opt for stretching the truth to seem more appealing.
Not saying it’s right or ok, just that it’s how it is.
I suppose... but it's not like you can SEE someone's bank account by looking at them. Or that an empty wallet leads to type II diabetes. I see what you're saying but in my opinion they still aren't related.
never heard of guys doing that.
That’s because without a 100k income showing most women online won’t even talk to an average man. From experience.
I know, and it's stupid. It was rhetorical.
They really aren't though. Perhaps in theory they should be, but they aren't in practice.
Then why are you calling yourself anything when people are around
I've made jokes about myself being fat before around friends
fat girls are hot tho
@stevven235 Dude stop.
Belly fat it self is'nt unhealthy. It protects your organs. But the amount of it is the problem.
It's a negative term because it's a negative thing.
Yes, but it's a lifestyle choice. Same as using GAG
I've said it before and I'll say it until the day I die, I miss the days where women shamed each other to be better and the eating disorder we had to worry about was anorexia or bulimia. At least people were trying to look good at that point.
You are right, they don’t want to feel bad so they use alternate words. Lol you are probably not a stick
@DavidFox I very much am David lol
@DavidFox oh and did you figure out what you were having for dinner yet?
Not yet, what’s your suggestion?
@DavidFox I don't know I would suggest pizza but you just had that... is it casual or fancy
Casual, fancy will likely be Saturday on my date
@DavidFox chicken and rice enchiladas
Women are generally very self-conscious about their bodies.
... Okay... uh what does that have to do with the question
It's offensive to some people.
That's because reality is offensive to some people. Burying our heads in the sand accomplishes nothing.
Yeah, fair point.
A rose by any other name is still a rose.
Fat people smell bad. 🧐
but they dont have to say fat
The point is we should say it. No one wants to be fat. It's unattractive and unhealthy. If fat people don't take steps to be thinner, then what are they even doing.
I fat shame people at personal risk, just because no one else will.
... They have fat to them.
Or... there's the option of working to change oneself rather than lying.
It’s difficult to stop eating sometimes
Yes, it is difficult.
Some. Doesn't seem like most.
