I feel your pain. Everyday at school people say behind my back 'she's so skinny' or 'that girl needs some meat on her bones.' Heck, even one of my FRIEND makes horrible jokes about me being skinny. It's tough when you got to live through it, and since I'm in my early teens, my metabolism is still high so it makes it harder for me to gain weight.

It really pisses me off when overweight/chunky people (not meant to be offensive) are always dissing you or calling you 'anorexic' or 'beanpole' when they themselves are not in the place to say that. And suddenly when you make fun of a fat person everyone is against you, but when someone makes fun of a skinny person people shrug it off like it's nothing.

What these people don't realize is that the media has a lot to do with it. Fat people aren't the only one who have it rough.

Sometimes the media prefers skinny/thin looking people, but I don't think they expect stick-bone body that some people like us have, etc. Keira Knightley. (I don't think she's anorexic IMO) Some people have low self-esteem, which may be the reason why they make fun of skinny people.

I know what it feels like to not fit in, especially when all you see are beautiful thin people in television and stuff. But you got to look at both ways and understand where they're coming from.

ANSWER #2 of 17

There's a difference between being skinny and just being fit.

Unhealthily skinny is just as bad as unhealthily obese.

If I see someone with bones sticking out... I'm going to tell them they need to eat something before their stomach implodes. I think it's disgusting to see someone malnourished just as I find it disgusting to see someone so obese that they cannot even walk.

I'm not going to lie... I have a bit of a muffin top and I wish I was about 10 - 15 lbs lighter but I'm happy. I used to be thinner, but I was unhappy. All I ate was watermelon and cantaloupe and I was extremely depressed - to the point where the army thought I was suicidal. I used to be in a very demeaning relationship where my diet and portions were controlled and I was constantly badgered to work out. Now I'm much happier with a man who actually loves me for who I am, not who he can change me into.

In the end, we all want to be what we're not. It's in our nature to compete. And if we're not winning... regardless if it's weight, make up, hair etc... humans tend to go for insults to make them feel better.

ANSWER #9 of 17

It's okay to tell someone who is skinny, "you need to eat more, you look so gross" but if someone is over weight they are "beautiful" and like jo7 said "real". The only thing that bothers me about this is that if people are aloud to call skinny people discusting, we should be aloud to call overweight people discusting too. (and by that I mean, it shouldnt be an issue or anything) :)

ANSWER #10 of 17

I'm in no way skinny and I still get that. People at work tell me I need to eat or get some meat on my bones (trust me I have enough meat on my bones lol)

I guess cause it's ok for a larger person to say things about a smaller person's weight but not vice versa.

ANSWER #13 of 17

I think it simply goes back to the point why any person hates on another their just simply jelous and simply trying to get the attention off of their own insecurities and putting it on the skinny person . I had a friend erin who was almost 6 foot and weighed 100lbs everyone was always badgering her how she needed to eat more and gain more weight how she was annorexic and belemic when in reality this girl ate a lot I guess it can be really fustrating when people are constantly badgering you to gain weight

ANSWER #16 of 17

Most people not just fat people asume that skinny bone looking people do not eat because in todays media thats how it is portrayed. Realistically they are probably right for saying skinner people look anorexic because most are now but then again we live in a judgemental society and therefore will probably never get over our sterotypical ways. Honestly it's not a big deal compared to other things out there

ANSWER #17 of 17

I could be entirely wrong with this, but I don't think anyone means to be harmful when they say stuff like this. Fat or skinny. I don't think they say it out of jealousy either. I think people believe they are just being silly by being over dramatic, and since other people say it and "normalize it", it sticks and isn't considered harmful. Even if it may be. They probably look at you, know you are in good shape, and assume self confidence when it comes to looks, cause they see every reason for you to be self confident. So in joking, though hurtful, it is kind of like a double compliment in their minds. Acknowledging your appearance and self confidence while trying to be silly. And yeah it's a bit backwards, but very well could be what's going on.
