How do you know he wasn't kidding? And even so maybe there is a logical explanation like angle lighting or maybe he was mislead because of the clothing she wore. I for the longest in high school couldn't tell how big a girl was when she wore a big sweatshirt which a lot of girls did, and it aggregated me.
Even if he was kidding, it was a seriously tasteless joke. It takes a lot of self confidence to send a picture of your body to someone, and for them to express disgust for that could really be a deal breaker. What if she had an eating disorder and just regained pride in her body? I could only imagine the hit OP's self esteem took.
51, it "aggregated" you? I don't think that's quite what you meant. And seriously? It aggravated you that girls wore what they wanted to just because you couldn't tell how "big" they were? That's pretty dickish. If you're aggravated by that, I can't imagine how ticked off you must be when anyone does anything else that isn't directly for your benefit and convenience. Please print this comment of yours on a shirt so everyone can tell just how big of an ass you are, just so there's no chance of them being misled.
No matter what, what op's (hopefully ex) boyfriend said was uncalled for. Most people's self confidence would decrease dramatically if someone said "ew" to their body. Especially if that person had a low self-esteem already. OP's boyfriend shouldn't be getting defended, even if he said it as a joke. Never stay with anyone who makes you feel bad about your body.
I'm sorry to be the one to tell you, Op, but I think your boyfriend might be gay. Just sayin'.
