being TOO thin is NOT attractive

darkalluringshadows, I know this seems nitpicking, but can you please type out your words instead of using numbers and other shortcuts? Thanks. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

And I agree - dieting down to nothing is a bad thing. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
If you diet down to nothing, yes, that is bad. But some people are just skinny, and they can't help it...I go to school with a girl who is about..5'4, and can't weigh more than 70 pounds. Not a chance. She eats though..she eats quite a bit. Her thigh leg is the size of my arm (ankle, my wrist, her thigh is my upper arm, ppl!! and my arms are small!!) Anyway...I'll creep out of this thread now [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img]

that was totally inappropriate - obviously you do, in fact, mean to be rude. next time proofread your responses for content (rudeness) and grammar.

Do you type this way at work or school? I hope not.

My request was made politely. If you can't respond in kind, please don't bother to respond at all.

Plum: Thank you. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

I hope if you have something of major importance to say that you'll type it normally because otherwise I'll miss it altogether. I'm not good at Prince-code. [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]

I give. You win. Type like a misguided 7 year old. I don't care.

Oh, sorry, was that rude? [img]images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

im not judging ppl by their appearances,what im trying 2 say is that some ppl want 2 be really thin b/c they think its attractive(like anorexics)im trying 2 say u shudnt go diet crazy & all b/c if u think being 2 thin is attractive,it just doesnt look 2 nice.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I agree with you up to the point that unatural thinness is not as as attractive as the person may feel it is....But, anorexia is an illness, which may be triggered by dieting to become thin to look good (as you say), but it can start from many other causes, like stress, peer pressure, depression. You can not label anorexics as those in the wrong because they look unhealthy and not nice to look at to the outsider. Once people have become anorexic, it has gone beyond dieting etc, it is an illness just like a cold or a flu and I think you are confusing people who want to loose weight ('u shudnt go diet crazy & all ') with those who have the illness anorexia, which is much more severe.
Well to all the girls that wonder why the thin bashing, well I'll come out and say it *for myself only*(this is ONLY MY opinion):I'm jealous. Thin girls have a beauty ideal that comes naturally, while I have to work at it and I'll always have to work at it. So to those angry about thin bashing all I can say is stop being insulted. You have the ideal. You look look at the media tody and see bodies like yourself. I have to look at models from 50 years ago to see a body like mine.

I'm PMSing and feeling down tody, sorry if I've offended anyone.
being thin is great,but too much of everything is never nice,thats what i was trying to explain.
The whole big picture however is this: Be happy with your body. There is always room for improvement, but know what is feasible and what is not. The grass is always greener on the other side--trust me. Appreciate the beauty and body that is uniquely yours!!! Thin, Curvy, Athletic, whatever--its all beautiful.

THIS MADE ME MAD. I am 21 years old, and I have been super skinny my whole life, and let me tell you it HURTS when people give you those weird looks, and say things about your weight. I DO NOT look healthy, but there is not a thing I can do about it, I guess I will always look like a toothpick, which is not attractive. When someone tells me I'm too skinny, it's just like someone telling an overweight person they are too fat. In the summer I refuse to wear shorts or sleevless shirts because of the way people act about my weight. I was walking through the mall one day and some lady commented to her daughter about how disgustingly thin I was, and how sick it makes her when someone doesn't eat. I walked right back to that ***** and told her what I thought about it. It's rude. I have always been skinny, and on top of that, the Dr. now thinks it is due to a thyroid problem. And for me, the toothpick, having the "ideal" body, you are wrong. There is nothing ideal about your bones sticking out everywhere. It even hurts when I lay on my side because of my ribs and pelvic bones sticking out everywhere. Who knows, the people you decide to judge may have an eating disorder, but they may just be naturally "twiggy" or have a health problem. Ok, done ranting.

MzShvy, j'adore, and crazywavy -- well-said.

I'd like to add that we are all created differently. We all have a beauty that is completely unique to ourselves. No one else can embrace that unique beauty but yourself -- because you are you.
I have experienced the same things , Mzshvy. It happened to me ALL THE TIME when I was younger. Occasionally now someone will make a flip comment. But I do notice that the people who do it most often are out of shape and unhappy with their own bodies. I think it is only fair that they be told something in return:

"Do you eat?"

Yes...but not as much as *you*, obviously

"How'd you'd get so skinny?'

By doing whatever it is you'e not doing

"You need to gain ten pounds"

Great. Can I take that huge slab hanging off your back?

Cruel? Yes. But I never hear any more lip. Who gives these people the right to criticize the way *I* look? I've seen many many big women who are just drop dead gorgeous. You are not gonna telll me I can't consider myself attractive cause I don't fit your physical specifications. And that isn't even in response to the original creator of this thread--just my 2 cents in general.

I have to add my two cents. As a young teen I was always teased about my figure. I was tall (5'9") and extremely thin, maybe 110. I had boys telling me how pretty I would be if I gained weight. I looked like a skeleton with skin. I tried to put on weight, but couldnt. My closest friends even had remarks about my "skinny ass". When I got married at 21 I finally weighed 120. Still nothing looked good on me, my legs were unshapely sticks, bones stuck out of my back like wings, I was shaped like a boy. After 21 years and 4 kids I weigh a whopping 150. I have been able to slowly gain weight over the years and my friends who used to tease me are envious because I am still basically slender looking. So I may have suffered in my early years, but Im looking mighty good now. Basically, some of us are just born thin, like my son who is 6'2 and all of 135 pounds. He may be thin now, but as a mature man Im sure he'll fill out nicely. Just dont assume and prejudge, it hurts.
