Rincewind53: dragonchild: serial_crusher: What kind of "extreme measures" did she take exactly

This. Obviously she's not anorexic, so "extreme" is a matter of perspective, and hers is definitely limited. Mind you, she's really not all that bad, but her definition of "not hiding" is publicly displaying her body for shock value with a message of "mind your own business". The unwarranted self-contragulatory attitude and passive-aggressive attention whoring is a thousand times more repulsive than any stretch mark on her belly. I'd actually think she's pretty cute (I'd hit it if I was single and drunk) if not for the crazy.

Time to hit fatties with the clue bat, again: SELF-LOATHING DOES NOT COUNT AS EFFORT. If you hate yourself, that's your brain telling you to do better. Misery without effort is just wallowing.

Gee, I wonder what might be the cause of her self-loathing. Might it be the complete assholes like her who tell her she's a bad person because she's fat, like the dragonchild: serial_crusher: What kind of "extreme measures" did she take exactly

Huh, she doesn't look unhealthy in that picture.

I know some women who are built "broad". They never seem to have any weight related health issues.

Hell, one I know has a job that requires lots of physical labor. She may look overweight, but she gets plenty of exercise and eats fairly well.

Just because being overweight has become the norm doesn't mean it should be celebrated.

It also shouldn't be condemned.

The problem with today's society is that too many people conflate their personal choices with morally righteous choices for everyone else. Fark off, in all seriousness. The world would be a much nicer place if people would just mind their own goddamned business.


Well seriously. It's amazing how many social issues are covered by the "don't be a dick" rule.

It's OK to feel she's entitled to do whatever she wants and still find her far more unattractive than she considers herself?
 
2012-10-23 09:24:06 AM
I'm figuring we're 5-10 years away from the end of obesity. Not through education or exercise, but through dietary changes as companies find ways to make cheap foods that are good for you and actually taste good. Very few fat people choose food that is bad for them when they have a good for them alternative that costs and tastes the same. The problem up until now has been taste and mouth feel.

The stretchmarks aren't terribly attractive, but then there's no reason she should give a crap whether I find her attractive.
 
2012-10-23 09:25:53 AM
Am bisexual and tend to be much more judgemental of females sexually by appearance than males. That being said, I think she's stunning. I'd personally like more curve definition if I'm objectifying her (not thinner, just waist definition), but she's extremely beautiful. I sure wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers.

OK, fair enough. Question for you though.... What are your thoughts on universal health care? I've got no problem whatsoever paying more in taxes so that those who can't help themselves can get help. But along your lines of me minding my own business, doesn't it become my business when I have to pay for bad behavior and habits? Why should my tax dollars go to help a Type II Diabetic who is only that way because they can't put down the donuts? Why should I be forced to help pay for lung cancer treatments for a smoker?

"Society" is defined as a relationship with one's fellows. It's our job as a society to take care of one another, not celebrate or encourage bad choices and behavior. Certainly people shouldn't be bullied for whatever issue they may have, but the line above is brilliant - it shouldn't be celebrated in the name of self-esteem. It's like the kids playing sports today in leagues where they don't keep score or declare winners and losers. Sooner or later that's going to come back and bite the kids in the ass when they get in to the real world.
 
2012-10-23 09:27:12 AM
Sure, she's fine. But once a woman gets to a certain point, I no longer find her physically attractive. If we had been in a relationship, and she started off thinner, and gained weight to where she is now, I would lose all interest in sex. If I met her now, I would never be interested in a romantic relationship. I can no more change this than a gay man can make himself straight, so I refuse to feel bad about it. I think chubby chasers are lucky; it's got to be easier to get what you want, when what you want is what most guys don't.

2012-10-23 09:28:40 AM
This is my body. Not yours. MINE. Meaning the choices I make about it, are none of your f****** business. Meaning my size, IS NONE OF YOUR F****** BUSINESS.

Maybe if you don't want people commenting on the choices you make about your body you shouldn't actively parade it in front of tens of thousands of strangers.

And, no, it's not okay to celebrate being a fat-ass. It's one thing to point out that people shouldn't be stupidly obsessed with being thin, but you're not not just chubby, you're obese, and that's unhealthy. It's no better than people being proud to be ignorant. People view your body negatively because your body is a negative aspect of yourself because you keep it in an unhealthy state. You also seem to have a terrible personality and a persecution complex. Did people bully you over them too or did they develop separately?

You're just the whole package, aintcha?

Ive noticed a lot of people that have a problem with fat people are smokers who are angry because they cant blow smoke into peoples faces while they are eating anymore.

a) It's sad to me that people can look at that picture and NOT see someone that is obviously unhealthy. Our standards have fallen and now we think that THAT is healthy? I'm not saying that she's going to die of a heart attack tomorrow, but the fact is she isn't in good shape.

b) I know plenty of women that are built "broad" and are healthy. This girl is not built broad. She is short and fat.

Cause the fatties with their high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes put no strain on the health care system. Nope, none at all.

Likewise, I've been in the high BMI zone a couple times and always recognized it as a lifestyle consequence. One day you you wake up and decide 'all right then' and make the changes necessary to get back to your recommended healthy size. You also recognize that it takes time and slow, measured steps to make it last. Unless you plan on dying shortly, BE YOUR PERFECT SELF NOW is about the dumbest method possible no matter how many magazines it sells.

It's a modern pastime to lower standards so that we all feel good about ourselves.

Yummy, warm fuzzies, to everyone. Now doesn't that just feel good?

This girl obviously was fatter; notice the stretch marks.

However, she is designed to be "big boned" (that's not your big bone, wanky internet losers). She has a bigger frame and is always going to be a bigger girl.

This has zero bearing on most people, who are fat because they spend too much time at their jobs and televisions/internets and not enough time, you know, walking around and experiencing actual life.

i1245.photobucket.com approves.
...and so do I.

CSB time:
ex GF has a father who is super critical of her weight. When he tried the same act on me, I told him with a straight face that (a) weight and physical form aren't character flaws, and (b) and if he really thought so, he could eat a bag of dicks for all I cared. We got along just fine after that. Sometimes, you just need to put someone in their place & get on with your own life.

Just wondering. Is there any kind of example of fat men showing off their de-clothed selves to smash the tyranny of fashion's expectations of what men should look like? Or is every out-of-shape guy supposed to take solace in Kevin James's rise to fame despite being unfunny and out-of-shape?
 
2012-10-23 09:36:56 AM
This woman is awesome and people need to give her props. I saw her at a pie eating contest and she destoryed everyone. Thank god the world of competitive eating actually respects people for their talent and not the way they look. Shame on everyone for worshiping health and fitness. Do yourself a favor and go eat a tub of movie theater popcorn and stop being so self righteous.
 
2012-10-23 09:37:01 AM

serial_crusher: MOST OF ALL, this picture is for me. For the girl who hated her body so much she took extreme measures to try to change it.

What kind of "extreme measures" did she take exactly, and why did she jump to the extreme measures instead of just maybe not eating so much, and going to the gym once in a while.


Because it doesn't work for everyone. I have overweight runner friends who have completed marathons and eat right, and they never lose the weight. Some people are going to be pudgy no matter what, just like some people can wolf down all the junk and pizza they like, never exercise, and still be skinny as rails.

Two separate issues in play here.

1) I admire her spunk and ability to stand up to those who mocked her and caused her pain. She is in the right and they are in the wrong. Seriously. Good for her.

2) She's fat. She shouldn't just accept it, she should be trying to fix it, dare I say, cure it. Its a farking illness, not a lifestyle. Wouldn't it be nice to go on a run? go dancing? walk up stairs without feeling as if you want to die? be able to put on socks without grunting? not have back pain, neck pain, and sore feet?

This isn't an aesthetic valuation, its health and quality of life.

Eat less. Work/play more. Keep that spunky attitude.
 
2012-10-23 09:40:23 AM
Yeah, look, there's having a positive body image even though you're "fat" because you're just a bit rounder than the average model or a bit into overweight but still healthy. This is having a positive outlook, and both mentally and socially it is in fact a good thing.

There is also having a positive body image even though you're fat, no quotes, because you're in a weight category for your height so definitively and unarguably unhealthy that my insurance premiums went up just looking at your picture. This is being delusional, and it is mentally a mild derangement and socially an entirely merited reason for ridicule, because your inability to take basic care of yourself is a financial drain on the pool of money the rest of us use to get medical care for conditions we couldn't easily avoid with a completely trivial amount of effort.

Basically, no, you should have a negative body image because your body is literally, medically speaking a bad body, because you've cared for it poorly. You should feel bad, perhaps that shame will motivate you to start bloody well taking care of yourself.
 
2012-10-23 09:40:25 AM
Holy crap you people suck this morning.

She's happy, who cares.

I went through puberty the same year I joined cross country. I ran 500 miles that year (not including whatever I ran for track in the spring). I stopped drinking pop and eating fast food, mainly because running on an upset stomach sucked.

And I gained weight, not all of it muscle. Puberty is a biatch, hormones all a crazy. Thankfully, I didn't have anyone *personally* tormenting me, other than myself wondering why the f--k I wasn't skinner than other girls on the team I could outrun... then eventually slapped myself awake and realized that if eating healthy, not drinking unnecessary calories, and being absurdly active got me to that weight, then so be it.

Eventually things settled down, but holy crap.

In summation: f--k you, f--k you, you're cool girl, f--k you, I'm out.
 
2012-10-23 09:40:26 AM
Curves are nice on a girl. But the waist is supposed to curve in, not out.
 
2012-10-23 09:40:46 AM
Most people I know who were overweight got fed up with being made fun of and lost all their weight. So, letting it be won't modify your lifestyle/diet, but being made fun of can have a positive effect on your health. It gives you that motivation to lose the weight, and keep it off. That being said, I don't find her attractive. I start at the face, and I just don't think shes good looking.
