That person is just as beautiful as everybody else, because anybody can be beautiful or handsome at any size. That one Kinks avatar that I use from time to time shows that I have no problems accepting my own size. The one where Mick's wearing a purple hunting jacket. :)

Depends

....if they are morbidly obese..then I wonder how someone could let themselves get that way (but this is just me...I can understand how people can become fat and even obese..I have an obese grandma....but morbidly obese, [not trying to be judgmental..it is just in my nature to figure out how something happened, I am a curious person!]

.....if they are just fat, I put my hand around my waist because...surprise...I am self-conscious about my weight or more-so my stomach)

Makes literally no difference to me to how I see everybody.

I think they say half the people are overweight now, so it is expected and it doesn't really phase me. A morbidly obese person that sweats profusely just by moving saddens me since they are essentially dooming themselves to an early death.


What do you think when you see an autistic person?

At the risk of sounding like an ass I'm going to be completely honest - a lot of the time it makes me feel better about myself. I used to be overweight but lost a lot of weight and am healthy now and seeing overweight people reminds me of how far I have come and how I never want to go back to looking that way. I understand how difficult it is being overweight so I also feel sympathetic towards an overweight person if they look like they're having a hard time with their weight. but if they look happy and confident I'm happy for them and kind of envious. (If someone 100 lbs more than me can be comfortable with themselves why can't I be comfortable with myself? :/)

I don't have a problem with most obese males but obese females I tend to walk eggshells around. Reason being I rarely have a positive encounter with the majority of obese females that I've ever known. I tend to cause them to b***h at me or be pissed at me for something. I don't know why cause I never talk about their weights or make light of it in any form. Maybe I'm unintentionally causing them to be insecure because I'm smaller and skinnier than them and they take it out on me for no apparent reason. I'm not really that skinny. I'm more of an average built. So yeah...first thing that comes to my mind is pretty much "get ready to be bitched at for something". Cause that's usually what happens with me.

I wonder what makes them fat -- lack of exercise? medicine? genetics?

I really don't think of anything.. I just pay attention to myself, what I'm doing .. and try my best to ignore them (whoever it may be)
