    That's not the way it should be. It's not right. I am glad I'm getting more respect but it's REALLY fucked up.

    I'm right with you. I recently lost 50 pounds and I'm trying not to get super pissed off about it.

    If your tone is mocking, you're being disingenuous and mischaracterizing my resentment. If you're not I hope you mean you're pissed to find out how shallow people are.

    Hahaha, yeah, that ambiguous sentence does sound like a joke. But no, seriously. I recently lost about 50 pounds and the countless ways I'm treated differently are taking a psychological toll on me.

    it's not as bad as the height thing

    i mean at least it's conceivable that weight can be changed

    height has a huge impact on the way people evaluate you

    Fuck tall gleaming white teeth personality men. 9 times out of 10 they're fucking idiots. It's always the short ugly guy who actually gets shit done and that's who I want to talk to.

    :(
    Don't feel bad, I'm sure plenty of people out there think you're ugly.

    The point is that relationships that stem from the internet are the most real relationships because they're not based on looks. Unless you're on a dating website, I guess.

    this is like that time I murdered some people and everyone treated me differently

    total bullshit

    Were they fat people? Because murdering fat people isn't quite as bad as murdering normal people.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    Would the police even investigate the crime?

    By making these jokes we're deconstructing our bullying problem, right?

    You're awful.

    there is nothing wrong at all with a girl not being interested in a guy because he's fat. treating him crappy, yes, there's no justification, but like it or not, weight has a large role in attractiveness.

    i mean it's not like she should date people to whom she is not attracted, right? that's absurd.

    it would be nice if people didn't have to be physically attracted to have a relationship but in many cases it is absolutely necessary, and it's probably unfair to expect it when we ourselves do the same thing

    but at the same time it is also infuriating. i spend the entire time i'm fat self-conscious, sucking in my gut, being careful not to sit up or stand down (where the inevitable 'jiggle' and 're-settling' occurs) until no one's looking, etc. and then i get thin and it's like oh hey, hello there my equal who deserves human respect.

    meh.

    shit's emotionally complicated. *shrug*

    I guess I don't really understand

    to me, it's like if you are really boring and no one wants to invite you to parties

    and then you read some books and learn some jokes and get interesting and suddenly you are the life of the party

    cool! you improved yourself and people responded!

    I would think this would be pleasing
