    No Excuse For That Kind Of Behavior

    I am absolutely disgusted by people that take cheap shots at someone who is overweight. It speaks volumes as far as what kind of person they are. It especially disgusts me when its said about someone who is clearly at a healthy weight and has some curves to show for it.

    I Am Not Overweight, But...

    ...I have a friend who is very overweight.When we first met, I didn't even notice her weight. She was a charming and funny individual, and we became friends because of her personality, not because of her weight.  In fact, I only really noticed her weight when we were talking...

    Have Been Most Of My Life.

    I was a chubby little thing, as my Grandma used to say.  I hated that I was the one that was always picked on for my weight.  I hated that I had to starve myself to get down to something that resembled what my girlfriends looked like.  I was the ugly duckling that...

    It's disgusting. Last year I met a girl

    who was an absolute sweetheart. Caring to whatever problem you had, and I still carry the guilt of not defending her from the venomous chatter and ugly looks she got. During band class a girl was applying her chapstick and a group of girls said "Quickly Renee, Hide it before...

    Never Compromise...

    As a big guy (5-11, 252 lbs), I know what the overweight go through. I was once 329 lbs (at the age of 20). People are so shallow and devoid of any reason- they take cheap shots at anyone... especially fat people. Why? Because they suck. They are sheep. They are nothing but...

    What Has Society Become?

    I heard a story of a woman being attacked on a train by another woman (I think it was in London) just for being overweight... It's stories like these which make me sad to call myself a human being. When people can learn to put aside their shallow hatred and learn to love one...
