STAMP: FAT ASS. by CosmicQueenie STAMP: FAT ASS. by CosmicQueenie
"I'm naturally big. Please don't assume I binge eat."

For those of you who are tired of hearing things like:

"EAT A FUCKING SALAD, YOU COW!!"
"PUT DOWN THE FORK, FATTY."
"LOL YOU WHALE, I BET YOU EAT NOTHING BUT MCDONALD'S"

and so on.

I'm so sick of the biases that big people go through. Being told that they're suddenly UNHEALTHY because they happen to have a bit of chub on their front and back.

I can't tell you how many times I've been discriminated against just for my size. I've been BEATEN UP at my elementary school just for being 'over-weight'. Even teachers would take away my lunch, because apparently having a sandwich and some yogurt was for lunch was considered over-eating. >.>

Bullshit.

I'm naturally skinny..and I'm actually not very healthy (which I do try but it's kind of hard when you're younger and can't get healthier foods by yourself) and mostly when I was little I was HIGHLY malnurished and given junk food constantly but somehow I was "fine because I was thin and not fat" yet I was sick as all hell but I'm only skinny because I have a very very high metabolism (I'm 90 pounds 5 ft) and sometimes I wish I wasn't super boney because it actually hurts when I set my elbows on any hard surface AND MY WHOLE ARM TURNS BLUE....so yeah..and my other limbs go numb really really easily..it's so hard just to cross my legs without feeling pins and needles within seconds..

skinny =/= healthy
fat =/= unhealthy

it all depends on your metabolism which was given to you at birth (aka it's in your genes and can't/shouldn't be changed)

I hate how everybody acts like being fat is a bad thing, I mean, it's not like they wave a magic wand, saying "I'mma be chubby" and can magically change their body shape. Can't we just accept our differences in size and care more about the personality?

I know that feeling. When people make fun of my figure, I just want to make them touch my ribcage. I don't have ribs poking out or anything, but I certainly don't have that much between my skin and my ribs and it doesn't take much pressure to feel my bones. I just have a bigger bone structure. Thank you for making this!

and the fact it's a standard sized meal is stupid. food gives you energy for school. just having a bowl of cereal is enough for a few hours.

My cousin Nefeli is a big girl, and she has ALWAYS been like this. Ever since birth. A big baby, a big toddler, a big little kid, now a big teenager. Hell, she's taller and bigger than me, and I'm 5 years older than her and an adult!
That's her BODY. She has done nothing to "contribute" to that. On the contrary, her mom has had her on healthy eating her whole life, with no results, of course, because her being big is on her genes and not her lifestyle.
Being big and being obese are two very different things, people.

People tend to forget that. :/

According to the BMI, I'm obese. I know it's bullshit because I don't even look obese.

Man, that BMI is a load of bull. According to the BMI, I am "overweight". BMI is not a reliable indicator for health at all. Oddly enough, people follow it like a religeon.

"Obese" does mean "unhealthy". "Fat," "overweight," and "big" are all words to describe heavier people with no connotations to their health, "obese" has health connotations. Unless they're misusing the word (which happens far too often) "obese" means "fat and unhealthy" or "excessively fat to the point of unhealthiness".

Well, being obese is a problem. But being just fat, in general? Bullshit. If people are naturally this way, then there really isn't anything wrong with it.

Oh, no, I agree that obesity is a problem. I just don't agree with how people are trying to solve it. (i.e. the exploitation like the Biggest Loser or celebrity fit club yadda yadda.)

Also, we got to take certain medications that make people gain weight as well.

For me, I was born overweight. I didn't even eat that much as a child. XP

That sounds fine to me. It's my belief that your body weight isn't a problem unless a doctor says it is, anyway.

This! And sometimes it's not natural, but from meds as well. I was so fat while I was on some meds, but there was nothing I could do about it until my doctor took me off of them. I was always chubby, and still am, but hell, my dad's whole family is chubby, and so is some of my mom's.

I really hate how I've been teased about my body so much, that while I can say girls who I KNOW are bigger than me are pretty, I still feel that my fat makes me unattractive. :/

Technically, I'd say being overweight or underweight is unhealthy. There are many problems that come with both, and that's a medical fact. You can't change that. I mean, I understand that people have different metabolisms and may have medical conditions and whatnot, but majority of body weights are acquired through different diet and lifestyles.

I don't condone what's happened to you just because of your weight. No one should be discriminated against over anything except personality.

Hmm, I kind of disagree. It's actually possible to "overweight" and healthy at the same time(And no, I'm not talking about obese at all. Obesity is a terrible problem and needs to be solved.)

For some people, being at a higher weight is sometimes better for them. (My mom was told by her nutritionist that her ideal weight was actually 230, even though her height was 5'5".)

What I'm trying to say in this stamp is that not every big person binges, like most people think.

Also, thank you. I don't support body shaming of any type either. All it does is increase eating disorders.

(By the way, thank you for being civil)

The reason people are so fat in recent times is because of all the preservatives and shit the food giants are putting in food. Obesity and diabetes rates have tripled since the 1980s, which, not-so-coincidentially, is also when food companies started to use all sorts of artificial crap in their foods, combined with an increasingly sedentary lifestyle.

It is quite natural for people to assume that an overweight person binge eats since that is the most common cause of weight problems. However, they shouldn't be assuming it.

(Why? Were other people on here not being civil? That's quite strange. It's just an opinion?)

People have different metabolism.

I eat terribly and I stay skinny, partly because I'm biking a few miles a day and partly because I naturally have fast metabolism. I'm constantly snacking on something.

My acquaintances wonder how I stay "skinny."

I also get made fun of for being skinny. You're not alone. (People have accused me of being bulimic, and my parents believe I am anorexic. Neither is true.)

wow I was reading both the description and comments (being thin for most of my life, and being male most likely since males don't usually say much to each other about appearance). *sigh* It pisses me off people always do it behind everyone's back where no one can give their own opinion and fight for respect... Ugh makes me angry...

People tend to presume I am in a shitty shape because I am chubby. Whenever I have a new teacher in physical education, they tend to give me nasty looks, one has even asked if I have any problems to keep up with the others. After we do some fast running they usually realize I have finished it first with the skinny sporty chicks and am not even breaking a sweat.
So yeah. Great stamp <3
