Ok..on another site, this girl posted in a public forum about the "hate fat girls have for skinny girls".. I replied..and this is how it went down.. I felt like sharing it with you all:) (she is knoxgirl I am SweetTreat)
Why is it that all the fat girls loath me because I'm not fat?
I'm heart broken...whaaaa!!!
No seriously......why do fat girls hate girls that aren't fat. How the hell do they know that we weren't heavy at one time or the other and had to work our fricken rears off to look slimmer.
Do they really think that slim or fit women are just lucky or born this way........get real!
And I'm sick and tired of the fat ones saying that their genetics don't allow them to lose weight or that they have a fricken thyroid problem.
I know for a fact that most of them just don't have any will power, don't care enough, or they're using food for comfort.
Well if you don't have any will power that's your own fault or you don't care than quit crying about it!!!
I would like to say that personally, I've never once in a forum blasted you for being thin..infact you stated before you were heavier and I stated congrats on the weightloss.. what I can't stand from you..and others.. is your constant insensative and rude remarks. What astonishes me tho is that since you were heavier at one time you should know how those comments can make someone feel and yet you press on and continue making them but cover it up with saying "I'm trying to motivate"...well telling someone they are fat, and no one will want them... isn't a great motivational tool. Jealous because you are thin? Hardly. Pondering why you are so rude... yes most definately.
As well don't preach that you "know for a fact" anything when you don't.
Her reply? Oh it gets better...
I have never said anywhere that because someone is fat NO-one will want them!
Did you have 2 muffins in your mouth when you had that picture taken!
U!! are exactly what I'm talking about......U are a pure example of why I posted this.
Oh don't worry......maybe yours is just baby fat! And when you GROW up you just might lose it.
See? That's what I have a problem with..your constant rudeness..not because you are thin..if you could say something even remotely intelligent..I'd stick around to discuss, seeing as tho you can't... take care.
The outcome? She's been banned from the forums for what she said..lol I can't beleive some people..honestly.. anyways.. that's how MY day has been..how have all of yours? LOL
I think that whether your are "skinny" or "larger", unless you are happy with yourself on the inside that unhappiness with yourself overflows to the outside. People who are not happy with themselves tend to lash out at other people. They need to make themselves feel better by putting others down. I am by no means defending what they have said. I just think that if they were happier with themselves they wouldn't make such hurtful and sometimes unfounded/ignorant comments. I am no expert, being happy with myself on the inside is something that I am STILL struggling with.
My top ten thoughts on Skinny People who diss "Fat People"
1. Diet food is tasteless or nasty and your bitterness stems from the fact that you've never had anything pleasurable to savor thus your mouth is always screwed up in lines.
2. I simply have more to offer and more fun in my life because I'm not tied up by the dictates you feel you must adhere to to meet societal approval.
3. I have no problem enjoying myself at social functions because I'm not constantly gnawing on the celery stick when there is a perfectly good buffet of yummy goodies.
4. I have insulation when it gets really cold while you huddle layers of clothing too heavy for you to carry on your size 2 frame.
5. More chairs are comfortable because I'm not constantly being poked by my own bony b'utt.
6. The men who romance me aren't going to be unhappy if I put on five pounds or lose five pounds. They'll just like the fact I'm nice, soft and cushy.
7. My ability to speak intelligently, confidently, and logically makes you (skinny person dissing fat people) sound incredibly stupid since you're talking out your @ss.
8. You know that if I really wanted to, I could sit on you and then you would be nothing more than a grease spot on the pavement so you are afraid of me. (She/He's compensating!)
9. I'm not constantly hungry.
10. Your insecurity about the fact that you gain 3 pounds each time you drink water makes you hate the fact that I'm enjoying the succulent steak, starchy carb filled pototoes, buttery roll, and luscious cheesecake in the booth next to you.

I just moved and found this really cute store here I went into to look around and before I even got past the threash hold the girl behind the counter said, "We don't sell anything in YOUR size" With about 5 people standing around I was totally shocked when i regained myself I asked to speak to the manager Turns out she was the manager so I asked for corprate number and she said it was privatley owned and there was no way to get a hold of the owner. I really want to scream at the people who think they are better than everyone else
That's harsh...and personally I don't get it... I mean.. you could have tons of money and want to buy something for your thinner friends..OR... like myself I fit into "normal size tops" baby just got back LOL So I can shop in a regular store for tops but not bottoms...yet I still get the "we have nothing in your size" comments.
If I were you I would have gave her a tongue lashing!

The sales lady came up to me and whispered in my ear... 'YOUR size is at the back'. I looked at her and replied...'am I not allowed to purchase something other than my size?' She just looked surprised at my comment. I hate that people think because we're big that we're too stupid to know what to buy.
That's harsh... had it happen to.. it's like...we do buy clothes for other people ya know LOL I went shopping with a g/f that no word of a lie is a size 6/8, we were at a "skinny store" the clerk walks up to her as she's holding a top and says "there's nothing here that will fit you" I thought.. wow.. nice customer service practice!

The funniest thing was after she went on her rant I started a thread titled: Why? Skinny girls? Why?? just to mock her..here's what I wrote..to rave reviews might I add LOL
Why do you think anyone who isn't a size 2 hates you? *sighs* Most of us don't.. what we do hate..or rather don't like is the sometimes superior attitudes you hold. The way you look down at us.. the way you *think* that you go it "all right" because you don't have a weight problem. Apparently you know everything there is to know about losing weight. Apparently you think being rude to us and telling us time and time again to remove the forks from our mouths, or to get off our lazy rears, or to have more self respect for ourselves...actually helps us... well it doesn't... Oftentimes the "skinnies" think the "fatties" are jealous of their picture perfect bodies...and oftentimes the "fatties" think the "skinnies" are jealous of their massive self confidence.. and while this may be true..... please get off your podiums.... take your celery stalk and run... because I've had it up to here with the constant bickering back and forth..this isn't thin vs large.. it's not tyson vs holyfield, and it certainly isn't the battle of 1812... fat girls put down your twinkies... skinnies put down your celery..and let's shake hands... call it a truce... and move on..gently...quietly...and with what little self respect we have left...k?? Oh...and I say we share a pizza in the process...we can make it vegetarian...
The responses that thread has had was hilarious... it's great... gotta have a little fun right? LOL
That's incredibly harsh. I find that some women that lose weight from being larger develope the attitude of "Im better than you now" and I dont get it. I've lost um about 80lbs...and have about 50 more to lose to get to my target weight..and I could NEVER imagine than..now or in the future ever acting like that.. it's crazy. It's like they are almost afraid to gain the weight back..just proves they were never really happy within themselves I suppose.
OT I know..but do you not find that nowadays even the Plus Size stores are empoying..oh let's say size 6-10 women? Now.. I have no problem because I dont discriminate..however... 1... being larger you DO understand how your larger customers think, feel about clothes...and also you'd never walk into a thin store and see a larger sales clerk there.. it's kind of interesting...
