@som-tam +1 nobody needs a fat chick. Except in times of famine.

@pazer: you do not seem to understand what ad hominem means. your attempt to dismiss my argument by trying to label me as having `issues` fits the bill exactly.

However, I will concede, on reflection, that my first comment was inelegantly written. The main thrust of my position is that people are too willing to try to push the blame on their own inadequacies on some sort evil, cultural pressure (ie, fat shaming or the all encompassing `patriarchy`) rather than doing something about it - which I see as taking the easy option.

@som-tam, "ad hominem instead of a counter argument? I didn`t realise a quickly written comment would be so difficult for the intellectuals of this site to deal with."

In order for it to be an Ad Hominem attack, the basis for me to reject your comment has to be irrelevant. Making comments like "pathetic cause to hide your own shame about your gluttony" and "if you were healthy, you`d probably write a pissy little cartoon..." are relevant in the context of what I said.

In other words, your over-reaction to this cartoon leads me to believe you might be suffering from Psychological projection

I know a man with a hyperthyroid condition and he eats like a pig. He eats 2 whoppers everyday for lunch. Also a huge breakfast and dinner plus eats cookies and candy all the time and he is skinny as a rail and the laziest slug I`ve ever seen. He hates fat people and shames them constantly.

I always find these things a bit of a cop out. Same way you can be happy with your body whatever size you are, and there will be people out there who find you attractive. You cannot tell other people they need to find you beautiful.

Like with the friend-zoning crap people have no obligation to find you attractive and want to go out with you.

OK, but fatties are fatties. It`s RARE indeed that someone has a `glandular disorder` . Normally it`s them eating too much, and not working off the stored calories.

fredyferd, I understand the message completely. The artist has some sort of body dimorphism, a sort of reverse anorexia nervosa.

It really is a shame, that so many people nowadays consider a healthy weight to be skinny.

Nope - comes from the media,
newspapers, stupid ass daytime progs, and those OK etc mags, where they tell you YOUR FAT if your more than a size 6, hammer that home every single day and you start getting paranoid, kinda like the old Haiti Voodoo, works the same way,
more things, folk, etc.. tell you - you look ill, you gonna believe it.. repeat repost, repeat repost ..

@som-tam, Your hate-filled rant says a lot more about your issues with women than it does about the author of this cartoon.

the social pressure female bodies are under comes solely from other women.

To the author: Well done on your little story, it`s Utter 5h1te, of course. If you are healthy, ie not fat and nor super skinny, then you will notice more admiring looks than if you are not. Don`t try to create some pathetic cause to hide your own shame about your gluttony.

Although, if you were healthy, you`d probably write a pissy little cartton about how men were `raping` you with their eyes or some other tumblr nonsense.

>Fatty goes to hospital
>Gets healthy
>Complains that people are telling her she looks healthy
Why go to the hospital if you are just going to complain about the results?

I vote for a return to asexual reproduction. Then we dont have to read about this topic anymore.
