    Thin vs Fat

    What makes it OK to call someone thin but not fat ?

    Just a thought.

    It only matters to the SJW type crowd whp are more concerned about FEELINGS than anything else, and think there's such a thing as a "right to not be offended."

    It's all relative as there is always someone thinner and fatter my experience.

    Don't thin people have feelings too, or is it only fat people ?

    Personally I try not to put labels on people. I know many thin and fat people and they are all great. When a thin/fat person feels confident, noone notices how he/she looks like.

    It's not.
    I've been called skinny, flacca, tiny, small, and worst of all "so lucky" all my life. I use to just take it, but I don't anymore. It's not luck, it's hard work. I make sure to point that out when someone discounts my effort, if they worked just as hard they could do things that make them happy about themselves. The conversation ends pretty quickly after that. People don't like it when you point that out.

    And most 'fat' people are actually morbidly obese, not just 'fat'.

    People also see those who can’t control their weight as having other personality flaws (lazy, slothful, etc). I was down 30 pounds prior to this COVID nonsense, the popped out my knee while running. MD doesn’t want to see me - I think it’s time for a new one, sorry he’s being pushed out of business. So I drink or eat, and stay off my knee. Really pisses me off though.
