    Like Any Discrimination

    They are afraid of what these people bring to the table. They are a threat to selective societies. They are believed to be unnatural enemies of nature, spawn of the devil (for you monotheists) and it is justified in the enemy's eyes. But most fat people just want peace and...

    Weight discrimination is probably the one thing

    in this world that can still make me angry. I like fat women, there, I said it. I'm sorry in advance for being blunt, but you're not curvy, you're not chubby, you're fat, BUT, you're still beautiful to me, and I won't let anyone talk you down because of your weight. I want to...

    My Dilemma As Being Skinny

    I really, really, really want to support fat people (woman in particular of course), but I feel like I am ignored because I am a guy and I am skinny. One, I do not appeal to fat people because they must believe something is wrong with me: they might see me as a fat fetishist, a...

    Hypocrites

    This is the one area that it is perfectly still acceptable to discriminate against a group of people. It absolutely disgusts me. With the statistical numbers showing that half of most country are, or are headed in obesity ranges, you would think that the discrimination would...

    I Don't Think Size Matters.

    I don't get why everyone is so damn rude about people's weights. Why bother? I think ladies with extra curves are absolute goddesses, if some men don't want to bother with women because of the size of their waist, the man's not worth it. All of you ladies who ever feel down, stop...

    Stop The Hate

    I've always hated my body.

    I have shoulders about an inch wider than my hips on both side (2 inches wider). I'm curvy but my hips are narrow. My legs are skinny little chicken legs. I also have a large chest. It's the ideal inverted-triangle. Guys never fin me attractive because I have man shoulders. Also...
