BunkyBrewman: 'He walked right up to me, turned round and said, 'Look at the state of you. You're disgusting,' and threw his drink at me.

Ummm... what?  So she's saying she was just standing there, minding her own business and some random stranger just picks her out of a crowd and dumps his drink on her?  I'm glad that she lost all of that weight and now feels much better about herself, but... that story?  Not saying shenanigans, but....


I don't know, the fact that it happened doesn't surprise me, the fact that she wants to meet the guy because he goaded her into losing weight strikes me as odd.

People say rude things to fat people all the time.

Yesterday I was in the local natural foods co-op buying some things.  (not to be hipster, but because they've got an excellent selection of bulk herbs and spices.)  The cashier says to the fat white woman in line in front of me "don't take this the wrong way, but from the side I thought you were Honey Boo Boo's mom."

First off, anytime you start a sentence with "don't take this the wrong way" maybe it shouldn't be said because it most likely will.  I have to wonder how the cashier would have reacted if she were told "don't take this the wrong way, but you look just like the maid on the Jefferson's".

Cue thatsracist.jpg.  But what is the difference?

Oh yea, the fat lady can go on a diet and lose weight so that makes it better?  Still totally uncalled for.

So, does this mean I am doing fat women a favor when I walk up to them and say how the mere sight of their flabby smelly gross sub-human blobby melty gooey flesh makes me want to projectile vomit? That's probably not the best message to take away from this.

Good for her. I've lost 130 lbs over the past 13 months (pic if you're interested) - still have about 70 lbs to lose. That kind of insulting comment was rare for me, but the comments I had from other people were in no way a factor in making me want to change. Any negativity about my weight just made me feel bad and engendered a feeling of hopelessness.

I suppose some people respond differently, but let an article like this make you think you're doing someone a favour by insulting them over the single thing they're probably the most insecure about already.

You know, now that I've re-read this, I'm a little confused as to the events she describes.  He approached her, THEN turned around and threw a drink in her face? What, over his shoulder? Did he do a little pirouette?  Now I'm picturing an incredibly flamboyant man dancing for her before insulting her and saturating her face with booze.

foo monkey: Nogale: I can't condone behavior like this, and fat shaming has been shown to be largely (hah) ineffective. However, a big part of living fat is denial, and there are certain cases in which a nasty comment or an unpleasant encounter throws a switch. The denial mechanism goes on the fritz.

I know, I'm living proof. Five years ago I was about 230 pounds (at 5'7"). One night, I guy I was seeing said out of the blue, "You know, you've got a nice face and great tits. Why don't you lose some weight?"

It took a little while to sink in, but I did eventually drop a few pounds. In January 2010 I started working out with a friend who is a personal trainer. At the time I weighed 212. Some of the weight came off, and when I moved away two months later I took up running. Over time I dropped a total of nearly 60 pounds (and became a distance runner.)

/// Sadly, the tits shrank from a D cup to a B. RIP boobies ;-(

I think you should let us judge.


Seconded.

And any man or woman who would do such a thing as described in the article to a complete stranger needs kicked in the groin.

Hard.

You should start with kids. Telling an 8 year old how disgusting they are will put then on a good path for a healthy adult life.


On the other hand, anyone who tells an eight year old that it's "fine" and "normal" to be morbidly obese should be criminally charged.
