10 Things You Should Never Say To A Plus Size Person

10 Things You Should Never Say To A Plus Size Person

1. You’re not that fat!
Aww thanks for being so totally disingenuous! What a wonderful backhanded compliment! Who are you? Regina George?

2. You look nice, have you lost weight?
Actually no, I’ve gained a couple of pounds in fact. It’s probs my new eyeshadow.

3. You probably shouldn’t be eating that slice of pizza/chocolate bar/ice cream.
And you probably shouldn’t provide a real-time commentary on my eating habits. I don’t have to ask your permission to eat certain foods – plus, you don’t want me to get hangry do you? You won’t like me when I’m hangry…

4. Ugh, I feel so fat today.
Usually said by a very slim friend who has just eaten a small bowl of pasta or a panini and cannot cope with the tiny, little wheat baby that has formed inside their stomach. The repulsion you are expressing towards your temporarily carb-filled belly is making me feel really good about myself babes.

5. Do you really think you should be wearing that? It’s not very flattering on your body shape…
Do you really think you should be saying that? It’s not very flattering on your personality…

6. When are you due?
Oh, the 3rd of…never! Save yourself the awkward convo and like, never, ever assume someone is ‘with child’.

7. Oh sorry, we don’t go up to that size.
Reportedly 45% of British women are dress size 16 or more, so you might want to broaden the diversity of your stock before *cough* you business goes into administration *cough*

8. There’s just more of you to love.
This sentence creeps. Me. Out. I am not your plus-size adventure.

9. I know this really good diet – you should try it!
Please don’t assume I need ‘fixing’. I’m actually perfectly happy with my weight. *Sees people faint with shock* Astonished Face on Apple  Astonished Face on Apple  Astonished Face on Apple

10. I’m just thinking about your health! 
Thanks Doc! Oh wait, you’re not my doctor? In that case, I could probably do without your amateur medical assessment.

  • Confused
    So I posted something saying feeling better. And asked how do I tell my bf that I rather go by a different set pronouns. But now I keep hearing him talking to his ex. We will call her Lilly. Lilly is bi and has a girlfriend now. I am jealous bc she can pull both […]
  • My vent 😭😭😭😭
    I just want to be skinny without people controlling me telling me to eat, threatening to take me to the doctors if I'm poorly. Well well done because I'm in this unit thingy. Honestly let me live my life leave me alone. I'll be dead If you'd let me do my thing. Leave me the […]
  • Paying for the first date...
    So who pays for the first date. I've heard a many mixed things... The man should pay, the woman should pay, bill should be split, the person that asked should pay as they are then "taking them out"... What are your guys' thoughts?
  • Post your thoughts on Christianity, do you think it's homophobic?
    God says to love all as He has loved you, love your neighbor as thy yourself... Yet he also says adultery and same sex relationships are not His way, that is if you are to love Him. It is very nuanced, but do you think Christianity is homophobic?
  • I don’t know what to do
    Weird things have been happening to me, I don’t know why this is happening to me especially when I finally get the opportunity of a life time. I can’t even sleep an night anymore because this is happening. I could really use a little help right now.
  • How do I convince my mom to let me keep my short hair?
    Its been like 2 years since I had short hair , but like my parents did not have a problem with it because it was a "feminine" length. I honestly always hated having long hair and love the way short hair looks and so, I made a huge decision and I have always been convincing […]
