Society Vs Skinny People


1) "Why are you so skinny?"

Apparently being super skinny is like an ice breaker sort of topic. My dear friends, honestly for someone who is skinny, I find that pretty insulting. Firstly, I did not made a special request to God to make me look like bones glued together to form a figure and secondly, do you go up to someone and ask them why are they so skinny or fat? No. You don't. Because it is rude. But then again, society judges you anyway. 

Sometimes I wonder if people actually go up to someone who is obese and go "Omg why are you so fat?". Obviously they don't because they don't want to hurt their feelings but come on, don't skinny people have feelings as well?

2) "You are so skinny. If the wind blows, you will fly"

A very common most of the time heard phrase that annoys the heck out of me. Why would I even want to be out if there is a fucking typhoon or tornado? And if I can fly, won't you fly as well? I mean I may be just 10kg lighter than you but if the wind can blow a 40kg girl off her feet....why wouldn't it blow someone who is 50kg? I mean it is just 10kg. It is not like you are a dinosaur or some huge ass elephant. 

3) " You need to eat more"

People assume that when you eat more you grow fat. Yes it is logical. But haven't you heard of something called "High Metabolism"? No, well let me enlighten you

In humans, metabolism is related to the intake and use of food; persons with a high metabolism can eat more without gaining weight.

Envy me bitches. It does not matter how much I eat or prove to you that I eat, because a few days later , another person would somehow tell me to eat more.

Is my food intake taking up so much of your concern? Wow, Im flattered that you care.

4) Not strong enough 


So, I have very small and skinny limbs and to others I may seem really fragile. But that is somehow a good thing because then people would think I am a weakling and not let me do difficult tasks. Thank you.

5) Are you anorexic?

It is true that I look like Im anorexic but do you know what anorexic is?

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by immoderate food restriction, inappropriate eating habits or rituals, obsession with having a thin figure, and an irrational fear of weight gain, as well as a distorted body self-perception. 

It is an eating disorder. An obsession with having a thin figure. So now what, are you going to be stereotypical and label all of the skinny people you meet as anorexic?

Do I look like I am obsessed with having a very thin figure and am very concious of what I eat or how much weight I put on? No. I am not

Do you see me puking after a meal? No

Do you see me starving myself? No

I hate society. I just find that we have all grown and adapted ourselves into this little lame world whereby it is okay to label somebody even though we don't know them or their story. We judge people before we even know them. Who the fuck are we to judge others? It is not like we are very perfect.
We are all unique in our own ways so why should we be judged?

Internet is bullshit. The articles on the web and also in magazines are so judgemental. Articles like how disgusting it is to be stick skinny. Mind you, there are a group of people who do not want to be stick skinny but we were born that way and we can't do anything about it and then we are being asked stupid questions like those mentioned earlier and no matter how we try to be nice and not petty to explain that we can't put on weight, we get ridiculed at and the cycle goes on again. 

I don't get why society is so insensitive. Judging and labelling and bullying people.Some may be okay with the insults but what about the others who may feel hurt by your words and they feel down and have a lower self esteem. What if they have thoughts of committing suicide because of how things are?

Would you feel guilty?

People also assume that when you are skinny, you may not be able to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy. These are all bullshit.

The most important thing that people should do is to just be healthy. It does not matter how light/heavy you are as long as you are healthy. 

So fuck you judgemental people.

And girls, if you are deeply affected because of your weight
