I Am Skinny

    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.

    Me

    I am 5'10 135lbs I have handfuls of joy instead of small boobs. I am thin and have been accused of being anorexic and/or bolemic. It is ******* annoying and insulting that someone thinks I look like the people who are sick. Being thin is not a medical problem, do not say "oh...

    i'm not gonna say exactly how much i weigh,

    since i'm technically really underweight, but srsly no one should be objectified and made fun of for how they look. I saw this on instagram & rlly strongly agree: "I think a lot of overweight girls are hypocrites. I'm naturally tall and skinny, I eat what I want, I don't starve...

    It's hard being a naturally slim guy,

    people think you've got an eating disorder. Yet if I was a girl guys would stare at me and then still think I was anorexic. So awkward being naturally slim I am the guy in the photo more or less just 6ft

    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...

    "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...

    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!

    My mom always tells me I need to gain weight,

    my BMI is 16.5 And the normal is 18.5-24.9 I normally eat normally, and drink a lot of water, but I have a really fast metabolism so I lose weight easily.

    You know, being thin isn't always a bowl of

    cherries. Sometimes I can't find clothes in my size. I have to be extra selective when it comes to buying bathing suits because usually the bottoms won't stay up on my hips. It's a pain when I'm sick because I can drop 5 pounds like that. I've been teased for being skinny, it...

    .. But then I stopped eating healthy food and I quit sports. Now my gut hangs and I can't see my feet. Y'all better be glad you're still skinny..junk food is addicting and it all caught up to me...ive outgrown a lot of clothing. I have a real problem..

    People always call me a twig

    or a skeleton because I'm skinny. I've stopped caring after a while. I'm not gonna fatten myself up so I could be accepted by society. My BMI is perfectly fine, by the way.

    People keep telling me

    that I'm too thin. That apparently, I need to gain some weight. It used to be just my friends, but my family has started contributing the same opinions! I honestly don't see it, I think I'm fine. What do you think, too thin? Or just right?

    I don't see how I'm skinny

    and all I do is fücking eat and sleep. Like when I'm at lunch for example, when we have pizza I could literally eat 6 of them in 5 minutes. My only result is either a stomach ache or sleeping. -.- I don't get it tbh.

    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...

    I find this annoying.

    Mainly because so many curvy girls get angry at me if I say that I don't like my body. They say "you don't have any fat on you you should try being me!" Just because I'm skinny doesn't mean that I have the ideal body

    So many people used to call me anorexic
