Ok so this is kinda a spin off of “As if we dont have enough body issues…” This had me thinking yes everyone has body issues. And I had a question for some of you other girls…. What is the worst thing you have done after being called fat?
Ill admit im not proud of it but after a few too many drinks at a friends 21st a creepy old guy called me fat and i Punched him…
I was just wondering If im the only weirdo that would over react… and if not what have you other girls done?

I got called a fat bitch at a pit party once and I just smiled and laughed because the girl was much larger than me. I’m not saying that to be catty, but it was kind of a pot calling the kettle situation.
A mean girl called my friend fat at grad though, and friend went crazy. Slapped the girl right across the face.

When I was in high school, a girl on my soccer team told me I should “lose some of the pudge.” She said it in front of everyone. I was completely mortified.
That night I made myself throw up for the first and only time. It was one of the worst feelings.
Thankfully I got over it in a few days. But for a little payback, I “accidentally” kicked a ball right in her face at practice later in the season. It gave her a lovely black eye for a week or two.

I honestly think that might be an over reaction. Do you slap anyone and everyone who insults you or was is specifically because they insulted your weight?
I mean when I’m insulted I get raging pissed but I’ve never slapped someone.

I’m pretty sure i’d flip out if someone called me fat. Personally i’d be more likely to fight back with words than physically, but anyone who called me fat would definitely get a rebuttal of some sort.

I get called fat a good bit by all kinds of people. My nephew asked me at Christmas if I was pregnant, like his mommy… everyone laughed and continued to poke fun at me all night long. I was mortified and left to go cry. I mean, it was my family. My mom is constantly on me about losing weight, and I usually just let it slide, because I am trying.
When I was in high school, I put on about 20 pounds. At P.E one day, two girls went out of their way to tell me that I was fat and should seriously lose some weight because everyone was basically trying their hardest not to gag at the site of me in shorts. I slapped that girl, but it had been a long time coming. She always had something mean or hurtful to say to me since we were in the 3rd grade, even going so low as to make comments about how I was getting special treatment because my father had died and how I’d probably made it up just for the attention.
Yeah. I lost my cool and slapped her, but I stand by the fact that she deserved it.
ETA: Now I usually have a witty rebuttal when others have something to say about my weight.

I would probably say “Well, you’ve got shit for brains so I think I win here.” or something like that. I really don’t get this woman calling other women fat thing. Even if it’s not something you find attractive, you don’t go around telling less attractive people “You’re ugly!” It’s like WTH? For one, I’m sure the person knows they are overweight (if they even are) In light of that I would probably say something like “yeah…. And?”

Can we distinguish between getting BULLIED and simply being insulted by being called fat.
I call for this because being bullied is much different than being called fat by a one off idiot on a rare occasion.

I have never been called fat directly, at least as an adult, my brothers used to call me fat when we were kids, but I wasn’t even fat then. A guy trying to hit on me once, used a line like “I don’t want you to be insecure, I like girls who are bigger” when I wouldn’t go home with him. I promptly told him, “Oh, don’t you worry, I’m not insecure at all. I just like guys who are bigger too.” And glanced down at his crotch to get my point across. LOL! I was actually pretty proud of myself, because I am never quick with a retort and normally drive home muttering to myself while I think of 20 different come backs, like George Costanza.

No one has ever had the nerve to say something like that to me. It’s just as well. I don’t think I would take it in stride. 🙂

@Ms. Peach: Excellent!
I’m often the person who thinks of 100 awesome things I could have said several hours after the fact…

growing up,, i was called fat… tub-a-lard… shamoo.. you name it (even by my own family)… as i got older.. i lost all the weight,, became a size 2/4,, got on with my life (which i love btw) and not that i care,, but some of these people i still see.. and they’re the ones who have put weight on. of course they still have judgemental words for me,, like omg you’re so skinny now… do you even eat etc… i just think some people always have to cut someone down in order to feel good about themselves… so i walk away from them,, showing off my skinny size 4 ass!!! 😛

I have actually said, and I quote “I can go on a diet. Unfortunately for you, there’s no fix for ugly!”. I wasn’t good at being the “bigger person”. Little miss thang backed off after that.

@UpstateCait: LOL, or no fix for the stupid.
I was called fat when I was 13 and 14 and weighed 120 or so (at 5’2″). I dieted down to 110 and stayed that low through most of high school (a bit of deprivation). I’m a lot heavier now.
