Fat friends?

I saw a link on face book about a weight limit for spandex and skinney jeans. The comments really surprised me. So My question is would you not be friends with someone because of their weight? Fat or skinny?

  • No. I have no problem with someone weight and size, they have a problem with mine because I'm short and skinny. Discrimination goes both ways.

  • i don't have a problem with ppls weight but when someone wears jeans or pants that are so tight that the fat rolls over the top and it looks like a muffin its nasty...there is no shame in wearing cloths that actually fit your body

  • I have no issue. My BFF of 20 years is significantly larger than me. I don't care. I also have a friend who is quite skinny. Don't care.

  • what does a weight limit on spandex and jeans have to do with being friends? Yes, I would tell my fat friend that she shouldnt' be wearing "skinny" jeans or spandex. is that the issue? I dont' want my friends to look stupid or to have people make fun of them.

  • The spandex and skinney jeans site comments were what prompted the question. Fat women were disscussed as if they were second class citzens and should stay hidden under a mumu

  • I choose friends based on personality. I also pester the crap out of people I care about to be healthy. I have fat friends, and I'm pretty vocal about how they need to shape up. I love these people and don't want them to suffer the health problems that obesity brings.

  • I don't have a problem with weight or whatever but there is a reason there's a weight limit on skinny jeans. It's not pleasant to look at. Sorry. And to be fair, there are skinny women who who don't look great in skinny jeans either.

  • I have friends of all sizes. My friend who is a little overweight won't wear sleeveless shirts. Now I admit she doesn't look good in them but neither do I. But if it is hot, I wear them! And I tell her she has every right to. But she won;t for fear of being made fun of :(
