Skip to comments.Why Aren’t Fat People Allowed to Be Trendy?
Posted on 07/23/2020 8:58:10 AM PDT by C19fan
Recently, I saw an image of two women walking down the street. Both of them were wearing a slightly different iteration of the same outfit: high-waisted, knee-length shorts with graphic T-shirts tucked in, and a pair of chunky sneakers. The look is trendy; a perfect encapsulation of the pared down, vintage-inspired aesthetic embraced by GenZ TikTok influencers who seem to take style cues from teen movies released 25 years before they were born. It is, as the kids say, a vibe. The womens heads are cropped from the photo, leaving them unidentifiable. Based on the trendiness of the clothing alone, Id have mistaken them for a pair of off-duty models, were it not for one key physical characteristic: the women in the picture are fat.

Wait, I thought I was.
You can be “fat” and still dress appropriately. The problem with some of these woman is that they are grossly obese and dress in clothes six sizes too small. No one wants to see ugly rolls of belly fat hanging off around shorts that are too tight in a t-shirt that is skin tight. Yuck! It is so unhealthy.
Take it easy killer :)
They got the one addiction that is easiest to spot.
GOD KNOWS how many alcoholics or druggies or degenerate gamblers or wife beaters or child beaters and God knows what else you pass during the day.
And disgusting is a strong word that should be left for democrats.
No one wants to be really heavy.
Let’s try to be the Christian board we purport to be every now and then :)
Even though I so often fail at it myself.
How about 20,000 years of experience? Healthy women don’t look like that and healthy women are desired by red-blooded healthy men.
If you try to have a conversation about objective truth (”2+2=4”) they will take issue because that statement is your opinion and, frankly, it’s racist.
If you try to make a subjective comment (”Those women don’t look good in those clothes”) they will take issue because you have no right to such an incorrect view and your opinion is, frankly, racist.
We need some Al Bundy for this thread
The first photo, the woman in all black on the left, looks like she was photoshopped to be ultra-thin.
Trends are set by people that other people want to look like. Nobody wants to look fat.
They don’t design or make a lot of clothes for fat people anymore and I have observed it often when shopping with mom ;) In the past they did...watch any movie or show before the 60s. Now they just push patterned leggings and tent tops with no shape, or skin tight tank tops which is worse. Yikes. I’d rather see the fat chick in the shorts and shirt you describe!
I don’t think it is Photoshop. To me, she looks anorexic and in serious health trouble — as much so as the “large” women in Photo 2.
The daughter of some good friends had serious anorexia problems and the parents were scared to death she was going to die from malnutrition. It took a lot of time and therapy to get her back to a reasonable weight, but they are always fearful she will regress.
meh- there’s fat and then there’s FAT!!!
as long as folks are in clean clothes that are not too revealing i don’t care.
Some folks don’t have a mirror at home.
If the truth hurts it could be the 70 pounds of fat your hips, knees, ankles, spine, heart, lungs, etc. have to deal with every day .
I former coworker of mine could wear anything. It all looked good on her. She reminded me of Jennifer Garner in ‘Alias’.
