Do people who make fun of fat people make you mad??

I'm asking this because an old friend of mine is always making fun of bigger people. It offends me every time because I'm not small anymore. Like first she said fat kids are a result of failed parenting and i guess since i was 20 pounds overweight in highschool my parents failed. She's the reason why heavier people feel so bad about themselves and why im afraid to jog in public cuz someone is gonna yell out their car window at me. Yea I know I shouldn't be upset by that but i am

  • I don't associate myself with such people. It's not right that they do that.

  • Yes it does. I avoid being friends with those people.

  • Yes. It is almost like some people treat those who are bigger like they are not people.

  • It makes me so mad because I'm bigger and I'm trying to loose the extra weight now but people just laugh at me at the gym. I'm not perfect I've had kids and it takes time to loose the weight...and who knows the bigger people might be dieting and loosing weight feeling good and then they still get made fun of.

  • It pisses me off SO bad! I'm not really big (about 20lb heavier than I WANT to be, and about 5lb heavier than what I SHOULD be to be in a healthy weight range), but I have a lot of friends who are. I want to punch people every time they make some kind of comment about heavier people. Not everyone is skinny because they want to be, and not everyone is heavy because they want to be. And it doesn't always have to do with "failed" parenting. Yes, some people stuff their kids full of nothing but crap (I knew a couple of kids like that in high school), but some kids have health problems (as do adults) that cause them to gain weight easily and/or not lose weight easily.

  • No. I feel sorry for them. They shows their ignorance and it tells me that they are scared of fat people. The fear is probably of possibly being fat someday but it still shows an insecurity. Plus I don't value the opinion of people like that.

  • no. its no different than someone telling/or saying that a skinny person should eat a cheese burger.

  • In general, I don't like people who make fun of others for physical reasons....color, weight, handicaps, etc.
