Listen, society is cruel - end of story.
Detour from the society acceptable limits of "normal" and you can be reasonable sure you will attract some form of adverse attention.
One of the exeptions to this rule however seems to be the issue of size/weight.
When it comes to size/weight, detour on the excessive side (obese) and you definitely come off worse than if you detour on the lesser side (thin)
This is directly linked to the eternal desire of most women to be less in size than what they are, the difficulty they have in achieving weight loss, and the respect/envy that comes on seeing thin people who dont have the problem!
Society views people who are overweight/obese as having lost control - bottom line. They have no will power, no self-love and are generally regarded as being weak minded individuals.
A thin person on the other hand is generally regarded as someone in control, who cares about their looks and appearance and therefore disciplined and strong minded.
Please note that this is my perception of society out there and not my own personal view.
Now, in so far as not caring what people say, i.e ignoring the insults about size etc, that takes a lot of training your own mind, self-love and confidence. However, it is the absemce of these three things that may have led to weight problems in the first place - so dont underestimate how much effort it requires to not be hurt by the insults/ digs about weight - its not all water off a duck's back.
Finally, we are all pretty rubbish at practising acceptance/tolerance, but it would do a lot of good if we tried.
Unfortunately for a lot of people such wisdom only comes with age........and I'm still only a toddler!!
