    It never bothered me

    until I was like 12 years old. Every girl would start developing while I'd look like a child and if I cut my hair short I'd definitely look like a boy. My grandma and many relatives would always say "eat something!" but this never bothered me either until the girls in my class...

    I filled in and have some curves

    but I'm still skinny and I'm tired of it. I don't know why some girls wanna be skinny. NOBODY wants to be skinny. I get jealous of girls with thicker curvier bodies. I'm trying to work my legs so my thighs can touch a little and get a bigger butt.

    I hate it when people say things like "omg you

    look anorexic you're so skinny omg" as if comparing someone to a eating disorder is a perfectly okay thing to do. It's really not.

    I'm not so skinny where my ribs stick out,

    but if you look at my arms, they're like twigs. My legs are very muscular though. Not like body builder big, but they're not twigs either. They have meat on them for sure.

    I am very tiny. Everything is tiny.

    My breasts have not yet fully grown, and my hips have not yet gotten wider. However, my *** is completely different. It's very round and firm and compared to my other body parts, way better. Some people call me 'anorexic', but I know I just have a fast metabolism and I have a...

    Although usually people just assume I have

    anorexia. Because surely you must be anorexic when you are skinny, sigh. Not that I care, I'm healthy and happy with my body.

    What's With All the Animosity?!

    I'm skinny - always have been. My mother is skinny, my father is skinny, and my brother is skinny. I'm pretty comfortable with my body and even though I'm significantly "underweight" by the standards of that poster in the doctor's office (5'8", 127 lbs.), I eat...

    I'm not one of those skinny people

    who could eat everything. I have such a small stomach; I barely eat anything and I'm full. It gets annoying when there's really good food and I want seconds and thirds of it, but can't because I'll explode >.<

    I've been skinny all my life

    and I'm so sick and tired of people telling me that I need to gain weight. I have boobs but I feel like a stick with boobs. I want curves but still I will not gain weight for anyone. I don't give a damn what society or who says, I like the way I am!

    but everyone in my family says I am. And they most definitely don't say that in a nice way. I get so mad when they tell me I need to gain weight or eat some meat. According to them I'm unattractive because I don't have as much meat on my bones. |: Hmph. Malos. I wish they all...

    I consider myself skinny.

    The reason why is because I don't look like Beyoncรฉ or Kim k. They have way better bodies then me. Even if their bodies are fake mine is not even close to hot like theirs. I consider myself skinny. I love my body :)

    I have always been ridiculed

    and shamed for being skinny. It started when I was in elementary school and one of my "friends" asked me if I was anorexic. I didn't even know what being anorexic was at the time but I knew by her tone it wasn't a compliment. Things got worse in high school and people were...

    Shopping is the most awkward thing ever

    for me. I'll shop with other girls, girls that are BEAUTIFUL but just a LITTLE bit bigger than me, and they'll make me try on stuff that "they could never wear" and ask me how it feels to be skinny. Honestly, I like my body and I'm glad that I can wear most clothes and look...

    So many people used to call me anorexic

    and even members of my extended family told me that I should put on more weight. I got really self conscious so I tried gaining weight (which hasn't been easy due to my fast metabolism). Everyone says that I look better and healthier even though I'm definitely not. What's funny...

    I'm fairly skinny and I've always been.

    5'7" and 119 lbs. I can eat as much as I want and never gain weight. I'm not saying that's a great thing either. There are times when I like being skinny and times when I don't. It just depends.

    "Too Skinny"

    Having/Reading/Hearing comments like "you're too skinny", "you need to eat", is as hurtful as "you're fat,just eat a salad". It's not fair that its rude when you call someone fat but perfectly ok when you call someone too skinny. Some people even act like they're giving you a...
