Don't assume that just because someone is skinny that they don't eat or they have an eating disorder. Don't tell them to go eat a sammich, don't tell them they are going to blow away in the wind, don't make comments about them having an eating disorder. Why is it taboo to comment on someone's weight when they are overweight but when someone is skinny it's okay to make comments?

Hey, what's up with your siggy?

Quoting AnnieMcD:

I understand. People suck sometimes. I don't think it's ok to comment on skinny people's weight either because you never know, maybe they have cancer. 

And maybe they just have a really fast metabolism. I know women who would KILL to put on 20 lbs. 

I also really hate those "Real Women Have Curves" ads. Real women have vaginas, regardless of the shape of the body around them. 

Quoting BlessedMommyNE:

Have you ever had someone tell you that you needed to take some of the food off your plate because you're too fat? I've been told as a skinny person to put MORE food on my plate because "I could use it." I don't think it's seen as saying anything wrong when you are commenting on a skinny persons weight...heck they're skinny, why would they care, right?

Sorry to hear people are calling you fat to your face. That's just not okay.

Quoting AnnieMcD:

Since when is it taboo to make comments about a fat person's appearance? Cause I get called fat all the damned time. 

How about, don't comment about the weight of someone you don't know, one way or another, cause you don't fucking know them and it's none of your goddamned business what they weigh ...
