I think he was just trying to be understanding but it came out wrong. Maybe by saying "I mean, I can see why you would" he meant "I understand why people self-harm" or "it's not your fault". Wild guess. Just giving the stranger the benefit of the doubt as someone who has been on the other end of this too many times.

Yeah, I also read it as the stranger being concerned about OP. Maybe he used to self-harm or knows someone that does and wants to reach out to others. Not everyone is getting the help they need in that situation since it's easier to ignore someone's struggles than it is to help them overcome them. I feel like the dude was just trying to do a good deed :) It's just unfortunate that he mislabeled the situation & insulted OP.

What a dick. I don't understand why people feel the need to be so rude, especially when it comes to other peoples body and lifestyle.

It makes me wonder what goes through their heads before they say such asshole-ish things. Do these sorts of people know they're assholes? Do they get enjoyment out of insulting random people on the streets? Or are they just socially awkward to the extreme? I mean, I know everybody has been rude at least some point in life. But it takes a special kind of asshole to say what the guy said in this FML.

there's nothing really wedding with stretch marks it's just that a lot of people don't like the appearance of them, OP might be one of those people. I know I am.

Stretch marks don't mean your overweight.. OP could be really fit but just grew to fast. And the guy can just be saying shit to make OP feel bad. I feel assuming someone is overweight is rude. Maybe you should learn not to be a dick.

The majority of women have at least some stretch marks, regardless of weight. I'm assuming OP is a girl, because I've never heard of guys having strech marks. I'm sure it happens though.

Guys get them... My friend had them on his back.. I've had them on my thighs. Girls tend to be targeted though because it means they won't have "perfect" skin. Just another way for the whole cosmetic (hope that's what I mean) industry to make money...

I have stretch marks on my knees.. I don't see how that could possibly be from being overweight. Stretch marks don't mean overweight at all

#9 both you and the guy who stopped Op are dicks! Cutting is a sensitive subject no matter what she was wearing

Whether they are overweight or not, they can wear whatever the fuck they want to. I'm guessing OP is female, and believe it or not - not all women dress in order to impress men. I know, crazy right? No. To assume that what someone wears should always be attractive to you is BULLSHIT.

18- I have horizontal stretch marks across my abs which came from rapid weight loss, so no, not all weight based marks are vertical. I'm also not remotely overweight. I wear a medium European sizes.. Small to extra small American. By the same token my scars from self harming in past don't all run horizontal. They run in all directions because I would go into a frantic attack mode and not even be totally aware what I was doing. Also if you have seen both- scars look far different than stretch mar

I see older overweight men without shirts when I walk down my street and I just deal with it. Why is it that women who are overweight have to wear a parka in the summer(and op may not even be overweight)? Just a suggestion to the dick who started this.......don't say shit that you're gonna get attacked about because of your ignorance.

@31, I'm slightly overweight, so I guess I should stop wearing shorts in 100°+ weather just to please you.

86- No one gives a fuck if you don't use fake tan. You still look like a fuckin Oompa Loompa! What's attractive about that?

@ 127: His name is Aesthetic guy; obviously he thinks he's hot shit, so I wouldn't even bother. Someone that is cruel enough to call a human being a 'whale,' doesn't deserve to be spoken to.

@ 138... You were disliked because your comments were rude and were putting anyone who is overweight down, especially women. Your negative opinion are the cause of your problems. I'm proud of the people who are confident enough to go out like that all because of people like you.

Quite lovely 138. I squeeze my fat ass into a bikini. I don't have a lot of confidence, but conversely, I don't give two flying shits what anyone thinks. I'm going to be me. How dare you say that its "nasty." So, people should not get pierced, tattooed, get haircuts or shave their head, wear makeup, dye their hair, wear contacts or any other thing that distinguishes people from one another? You sir/madam are a completely obnoxious tool for saying that someone is gross. Some peopl

I'm 15, weigh 95 lbs, 5'9, and have stretch marks on my thighs. I'm pretty sure I'm bit overweight I grew 5 inches within 3 months. Not my fault, that's life

I'm underweight and have stretch marks all over my stomach, inner thighs, and upper arms. Why? Because during middle school, this magical thing called "puberty" happened and I shot up to 5' 11" by high school. And you know what? I don't give a shit, and neither should anyone else. A majority of people have stretch marks somewhere, and they're still beautiful. Whenever I modeled as a teen or whenever I belly dance in public, no one seems to care that I have stretch marks. Good luck

I am 23, 5'9, 136lbs, wear size 4 pants, small tops, size 9.5-10.5 shoes, a D-cup, and I have stretch marks all over my thighs, hips, and breasts. Do you know why? Because five years ago I was diagnosed and hospitalized with severe Crohn's disease. I had to have a major and life-saving surgery that left me with a very noticeable scar from hip to hip, required several blood transfusions, was hooked up to seven IV's at the same time, had 11 inches of my colon removed because a section had burst an

I'm 16 and I have stretch marks on my thighs and calves from playing softball and being the catcher for 3 whole years. It's not from being overweight or pregnancy. Stretch marks are a beautiful thing.
