I don't think people are ignoring your post, I just think it's a question that people don't feel comfortable answering - I certainly don't.

Just to then make me put 2 pounds of mayo on their sub

"There's a fat person. I wonder if the bookstore is open?"

"Oh look, that person is fat" That's it really, :roll: although I'm curious as to why you need to know.

Nothing of it. My brother and dad are overweight so it's normal for me to see.

nothing specifically different from what i think when i see a thin person.


at work, i might be thinking, "do i need to talk to that person or can i ignore them?"

on the pavement i might be thinking, "i think i will go left to pass them."

if it is a friend i might be thinking, "i like her shirt."

Well I've got Tourettes so the first thing that comes into my head (and often straight out of my mouth) is 'FAT!! !'

I do not mean to do this because I know that it is rude and horrible. I can't control it.

A weird thread if I say so myself...
I don't think much, they are still a person, are they not?

It depends on what the fat person is doing. If they are ridding in an electric-scooter while eating a bucket of fried chicken; I think the person needs to walk instead of eating so much. but if they are doing a normal activity or something; I don't really think much about em being fat

First off, I don't understand the point of this question. Secondly, I am quite fat. I am not "morbidly obese" but you wouldn't mistake me as being buff just because I wore a big shirt. In all honesty, I usually think things that are quite judgmental when I witness very large people. I always feel bad about it, but I do it anyway.

Perhaps it is because I fear an increase in my own weight, so I just project negative thoughts.
