  • that sucks but I am a plus sized lady also and get teased, laughed and pointed at all the time and the remarks....don't even get me started on them, I don't understand it either and it does hurt but I also remind myself that what goes around comes around and I believe in karma also; I would never ever make fun of anyone no matter their shape size age gender or anything but there are alot of people that believe if you are "plus" size that you don't belong some places and that all you ever do is eat and that is why you are plus sized which isn't true. It breaks my heart that people have to be so shallow but there are alot like this out there; if it would have been me I would have went over and hugged her

  • Did you see my thread on this a while ago about my sister? Why do people treat people like that? It makes me sooo angry. Just because you are skinny doesn't make you better than them. I would like to think that people I come in contact with go away feeling better about themselves not worse- shouldn't this be the goal of everyone??????

  • i can't believe some people are so rude and raised so wrong! sure, i may THINK something, but i would never voice my thought or ever dare to speak it to the person. good gravy. who is raising these kids? (and yes, i realize the might not have been 'kids'...i know full grown women could be capable of doing this, also.)
    my momma used to say, ''they'll get theirs..someday.''
    to which i always said, ''BUT I WANNA SEE IT HAPPEN!!"

  • Those girls were definitely overly mean.. But I've seen oversized girls.. & skinny girls as well in booty shorts & thongs hanging out.. Damn..that combo just shouldn't be worn by anyone!

  • How sad. I'm a big girl and ppl look at me different sometimes but to my face ppl don't make fun of me for my weight. I'm a good looking plus sized girl with bitchy eyes lol maybe I put off this I'll bite your head off if you talk crap to me vibe. I would of cried in private. Not that she was wrong for crying in the store but I wouldn't let them see it got to me. It sucks that girls are like this. I strive to teach my kids manners and respect for ppl of all sizes and colors. Guess their parents didn't teach them that. They will probably be fat one day. That will teach them lol
