My efforts to battle body shaming include posting photos of my anal abscess with the word JEALOUS? under it.

Sure there are people that write "PLEASE DIE, THANKYOU" and "UNFRIENDED - by the way WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?"

But then my TRUE friends all write stuff like "You go girl!" and "Haterz gonna hate" and "Your possibly life-threating infection is what makes you you.  Don't ever change.  Well maybe change your underwear once in a while, it may help with the inflammation" and all is right in the world.

That was part of the harassment. They sent her a "Kill-O-Gram" message with their smart phones. In fact they sent 56 "Kill-O-Gram" messages with their smart phones.

Mad_Radhu: BigLuca: I have an uncle that has burn marks on his chest from an accident he had when he was a kid.  He wears shirt to the pool.  He doesn't do that because he is ashamed or embarrassed about his body, he does that to make other people more comfortable when they interact with him.  He has not made a facebook post about it.

I similarly avoid waking around shirtless outside in the summer because I just don't think the world wants to see my hairy man boobs.


The way i figure it, either a person DOES want to see my hairy man boobs or a person DOES NOT want to see my hairy man boobs.  And both are good reasons to wear a shirt.

Gunther: Relatively Obscure: I'd bet money that this story never happened.

I ain't taking that bet.

The actual Facebook post never says that she was "mocked", it just says "I'm sorry if... it grossed you out". The MSM's just making a story out of nothing because there haven't been any recent plane crashes and those danged middle-Easterners are having a 72 hour ceasefire instead of blowing each other up, so there's nothing newsworthy to talk about.


Waiting for the donation fund to be set up to show those meanies on the beach.

/my breakfast beer weeps for you, lady.

My sentiments exactly and I actually am having a beer for breakfast.

Look lady.   Get over yourself.  You don't have a hot body.  Some people are cruel and insensitive.  I've been mocked for the state of my body too.  I got over it.  I didn't know the people making fun of me and I decided I really didn't give a shiat although I sort of wished I had yelled at them "Oh yeah?  Let's see what you look like 25 years from now."

It's not worth getting worked up over.


I'm 6-1, 160#, give-or-take. I get some ribbing for being a skinny old guy, and I don't mind it, really, especially considering the alternative. What I do find odd is how that is apparently ok but being called out for being a fat fu*k is un-PC.

holy shiat, I had to go look at the actual article.

"I'm sorry if my 33 year old, [56 kilogram body] offended you so much that you felt that pointing, laughing, and pretending to kick me.
"But I'll have you know that as I looked at your "perfect" young bodies, I could only think to myself 'what great and amazing feat has YOUR body done?'.
"I'll also have you know that I held my head high, unflinching as you mocked me, pretending that what you said and did had no effect on me; but I cried in the car on the drive home."

Honey, most women can have babies. A lot of us can have babies when we don't even want to have babies. And even more of us than that can have ugly, out-of-shape, stretch-marked bodies. You aren't really all that. You aren't even really much of anything. Either suck it up and ignore people or go put on a bigger bathing suit.

You should probably get that checked by a doctor. Might be an infected hemroid, kind of a dangerous thing, bleeding to death is bad if it bursts.

THANK YOU. A normal person would have flipped off the kids who were "pointing, laughing and pretending to kick" her, which would have mortified the group enough that one of them would eventually pluck up the courage to walk up to her and say, "Excuse me ma'am, but you're sunbathing on our soccer field. See the little flags we set up? See the cones? We were all having a blast until you plopped down in the middle of our game. Ma'am, could you please look up from your phone and listen? No? Sigh. I guess we'll have to set up somewhere else then." Some people.
