CAN WE STOP WITH THESE WHY I AM SO FAT ITS NOT MY FAULT WAAAH FML'S thanks :)
Maybe people don't write FMLs about being skinny because being thin (even unhealthily so) is still condoned/appreciated in our society? Whereas we've got this whole negative outlook towards any woman (there's a significant bias towards judging women rather than men on their appearance) who is even a little chubby.
Yo, Kalliope, unlike many of the dicks on this site I don't judge overweight people. (Look at my username xD) I just think complaining about it on the internet instead of actually going out and doing something about it is not only counterproductive, but... well, you know... sad.
Oh, agreed. If it's something out of the OP's control then it's perfectly valid as an FML. Weight related issues (unless they're involving some kind of illness) are within the OP's power to change. I guess my gripe is more with the fact that society still makes weight such a huge issue to begin with. My friend overheard someone say that she'd rather have cancer than be fat. (Because having cancer is such fun, right?) My mind boggles.
