Agreed. How is this something that’s not only allowed, but allowed repeatedly?

I think this totally goes both ways, there have been some pretty nasty posts about girls who are skinny and not “real women” and a whole bunch of BS too. I think all sides need to realize we are all different and if someone else’s weight (both over and under) bothers you that much you should examin yourself to see why you feel the need to so harshly judge someone else for something so insignificant.

I am chubby and proud of it. I’ve seen alot of bashing here in general, too skinny, too fat, too this too that. Come on… I wish I could like your post as well. Stop bashing.

@chasesgirl: While I agree with you, the difference is that any thread that even slightly talks down on skinny ladies is quickly edited and and poster is often warned or even banned. I’ve seen numerous “fat-bashing” threads recently and the original post goes unedited while people commenting on the OP have been edited. It doesn’t seem fair. Both are insulting and both types of bashing (or any kind of bashing for that matter) should be treated equally.

@chasesgirl: There have been plenty of threads about skinny bashing too, but I believe this was posted in response to the most recent weight thread, about bridesmaids who are overweight being unacceptable, either because their dresses don’t fit the uniform look, or they might mess up the pictures. This particular topic of overweight bridesmaids seems to be one that is trending over and over on here and people are sick of it.

@KatyElle: I Agree completely.. :/ It’s such a shame, becuase all of the time I have been following WB, the rapid downfall of the quality of the threads are just .. shocking.

Specially the fat bridesmaid post. 🙁

Anyone else tired of the general nastiness around here lately? Or the troll posts?

I totally agree. Why is it okay to bash “fat” women, but the “skinny bitch” thread ended in a giant uproar? Wtf.

I tried to post, but it got eaten.  But, basically I couldn’t agree more.
