I do! Today on FB this really skinny (tiny) girl wrote “Why is Snooki so fat? Someone kill me if I ever let myself get that big!” While I admit that I don’t think Snooki is attractive or look particularly healthy, I was annoyed that this girl who has probably no fat on her was commenting on someone who does. Anyone else think she should keep her “fat” comments to herself?

I think that all women should keep fat comments to themselves. It’s never ok to comment on another woman’s size, whether they’re commenting on how fat she is or how skinny she is. Neither is ok in my book. Women being catty towards other women is part of the reason why self esteem issues come about.

I hate when I see other women put each other down. It just makes everyone feel bad about themselves.

@2PeasinaPod:True indeed. It left me with a really bad taste in my mouth.

Fat or skinny–people shouldn’t comment on the size of other people’s bodies. Being called “skinny” is not such a compliment, either. I agree with 2PeasinaPod 100%.

Rude, bitchy, insensitive and completely uncalled for…yes.

I think we all as women would be able to lead much happier lives and have much high senses of self if we would all stop commenting negatively on one another’s looks.

I agree with 2PeasinaPod and I just want to add the people that always do that have some type of insecurity about themself. They may be “skinny”, but they may have other things they hate about themself. So they call out (in an obnoxious and loud manner) what they think is their “perfect” part of themselves.
It’s so unattractive.

@2PeasinaPod:What’s really interesting is that I guess I never saw it the other way around before. Body image comments are bad all around and it stinks when women attack other women. People just need to shush it when it comes to people other than themselves!

I’ll add that I also really hate hearing women criticize their OWN bodies. Not only do other people tend to hear it and go “wow, if she thinks she’s x, I must be super x!” but it promotes a culture of disrespecting our bodies. I think it’s really hard to have good body image unless you’re respecting both your body and everyone else’s… and life is so, so much better when you’re not spending it hating the body you’re inside.

Yes! I get so annoyed when people say these phrases: “I’m eating like a fatty today” “Look at you skinny minny”–haha not said to me. I have a friend that whenever she eats something unhealthy goes “I’m a fat-fat.” I only don’t say something because it’s to herself, but sheesh. Just eat the damn cheeseburger! End rant. 😉
I agree with all posters who have said some variant of “keep body image comments to yourself.”

I think @2PeasinaPod is right–women shouldn’t put down each other’s bodies. And I agree with @RR (sorry, I don’t know how to do the link to a previous post in my posts!) that this girl is probably insecure and feels like talking about how skinny she is in comparison to Snooki will make her look and feel better.
Can we talk about how Snooki is an orange-colored, constantly drunk, hot mess? I think that’s more of an issue than her weight.
