See when anyone, whether it is a girl or a guy, uses the word “fat” in a disrespectful and discriminating manner I personally take offense even if it isn’t targeted towards me. The word “fat” in general offends me as it is such a horrible thing to say. It is a word that makes a vast amount of people today paranoid, ashamed and disgusted in themselves every minute of every day. I was targeted as a young girl most days being told “you’re a fat goth.” So I am sorry but no matter what manner you say this word, whether it is to be humorous, offensive, vulgar or light-hearted I don’t care… people need to realise that we all come in different shapes and sizes and that no one is the “perfect weight” because everyone is beautiful. I hear people all the time saying “fat girls are desperate” and that “fat girls are disgusting” and so much more. These people being ‘apparently’ against bullying, against hypocrisy, against judging people and are actually very insecure about themselves. If you are all those things and you target people for their being over-weight, sorry but you are no better than the people who judge you everyday that make you feel worthless.
I’ve always been disgusted with my body, it’s why I haven’t had a long-term boyfriend because i’m ashamed that much. But recently i’ve realised that everyone is into different types whether they are skinny, curvy and so on. No one is perfect and the more people realise this the better rather than walking around judging people for the sake of making their confidence and self-esteem higher.
