I know a lot of women who think anyone below 6' is short but if you say you don't like big girls them and their friends are after you on social media. What's that about?
@nelomaxwell: it's 2015 brah, I tend to not care anymore, which is why I'm listening to eminem songs and sticking the finger to society. But yeah double standards is like the lighter part of racism, we can be against it all we want but it's never truly gonna be non existent until it is.
Whaaa? Women who are openly after a guy for his looks (or more possibly money) are frequently called shallow by society.
As for the title (which may need grammatical clarification), no that's not fair particularly as weight can be controlled and height cannot.
Well, if you're just describing someone who's *fat*, and you don't say they are, there could be 5 other people who match the description that aren't. Saying they're fat isn't really offensive, unless you're being made fun of about it, which isn't okay for anything (telling a friend *lose weight* in a tone that seems like you care about the person isn't bad).
Making fun of an overweight person is worse than making fun of a tall person because someone who is overweight or obese can look, not regular, while an overly tall person (like 6') doesn't necessarily follow those same rules.
This is all IMO by the way.
Yeah...no. I feel like just about everything is open for mockery. As long as you keep it in that context and know when it's not funny anymore.
I'm short. I openly accept the fact that I will never be an ideal height for the majority of women I know. Doesn't mean I can't take a joke about it, and doesn't mean I won't joke about my friends ethnicity after they offer me a bucket of fried chicken and watermelon to make up for their comments.
Because too many people believe and want to make others believe being fat / overweight is a disease when it is most certainly is not.
You get fat by taking in more calories than you burn off, by eating too much and / or not getting enough exercise, sure a very small percentage may put on weight because of illness (both physical and psychological) but for the majority it is a conscious choice.
If I can steal a line from Ricky Gervais, " No one got fat behind their own back ".
I would like to point out that their is nothing wrong with being fat or overweight, but it is for the most part a choice and not a disease.
Though personally I would not make fun of anyone whether fat or short, Except with a friend, and only then if I knew they would take it in the spirit it was meant and would not be offended, as well as being willing to give as good as they get.
