it just seems if a man is over weight people don't say much about it, but if a women is over weight people talk bad about her

It is not acceptable for either. But maybe it is because women are so catty as to why they will talk about each other before they talk about a guy?

I don't know I think there is just more pressure on women to compete with each other

2 reasons:

1. society has stupid standards that change with each generation and people take it to heart like its important what total strangers that you'll never meet think.

2. Men aren't as phased by what people think, since there's no reaction (as much) then thats not as fun and engaging, so they leave the men alone, but woman, they react, take it personally, take actions, get verbal and that makes it more interesting when you get a reaction.

Have you noticed how fat dh's are in sitcoms? They're making it the norm. Hot wife, fatty husband. It's appalling.

Yup they are fat and have pretty wives, but you never see the opposite

It isn't acceoptable to me. If a man is over weight I still talk poorly about him. lol. Society is a different story though... I try not to be judgie, but I am sometimes. We all have flaws...
