I think most women get a bit ratty when they realise they can't make any comment online about their style choices without a (usually) man heroically stepping in and saying whether it means they would shag them or not, as if they were answering a secret question the woman was asking.
#34 The thing is that when you make a comment about your style choice (or hell, pretty much anything) online, then people are going to respond with their own opinions. Given that no one is under any obligation to validate other people's life choices, then you should probably refrain from making said comments in the first place if negative opinions ruffle your feathers that badly (or find one of those "safe spaces" that are all the rage on Tumblr). Also, while I admit that I've only skimmed the rest of the comments thus far, I've not seen a single person state whether or not they'd like to pork OP and her pink hair, so I can only assume you're conflating that with simply having an opinion.
On tumblr I don't get to tell people that comments they think are innocuous are actually kind of adding to a whole vibe of 'how dare you look this way without seeking my opinion first' (or maybe I do? I haven't been on Tumblr before). Personally I like a bit of feather ruffling.
"Yeah, well I can lose weight. Too bad for you your face is stuck like that."
#43: OP's remark is a put-down to her e-friend stating that OP can always look better by losing weight, but that her "e-friend" will forever be ugly. There's also that old rule of etiquette that states: if you can't say something nice about somebody, then don't say anything at all."
"Good thing I can lose weight, but you can't lose that shitty attitude."
"Not as thin" doesn't mean bad or fat, if you're fat you should go to a gym, but if you're under 12% body fat you should be fine.
Unbeknownst to you, she has a rare mental condition similar to OCD that impels her to state all associations she makes with somebody's appearance. Poor thing had to bite her lip to keep from telling you the last time you wore your outfit was a Tuesday, a prime number, and had 40% humidity.
That sucks. My advice is to hit the gym and eat healthier, but don't overdo it.
I agree with #16, drop this "friend", no real friend says stuff like that unless you were just joking around (sometimes my bestfriend and I playfully talk shit? Guess that's 12 years of friendship for ya.) Anyways, if you guys had a relationship like that, I'm sure this wouldn't be a FML. Soooo yeah, cut the bad fruit OP, you won't regret it.
It's not necessarily an insult though, some people's weights just fluctuate like that. 'Less thin' doesn't automatically mean 'omg quick run to the gym crying hysterically', it could even mean she looks more healthy, maybe she wasn't eating well or was overly stressed before.
