My brother said to me

"At 5'7 and 148 pounds you are an easy target for heavy guys to bully"


Can you tell me why it would make me vulnerable to being bullied by them?

Because someone who is thinner is presumably weaker, thus easier to bully. Unless you were trained in some fighting technique, then it doesn't matter.

If you hang out in bars, you might get bullied by big drunk people.

But increasing your weight with fat will only make the problem worse. If you're thin, you might be able to run away at least. You need muscle and training.

(Do as I say, not as I do.)

My brother said this about my ex since he weight maybe no more then 10 pounds more then me(I have a small frame) and my family especially didn't feel "safe" leaving me with him in public for that reason. We had to go in areas where it could be guaranteed there wouldn't be a problem and one time I was almost forced to shave my legs before going on a date with him to "avoid further conflict" if someone were to make a comment.

I’m 6’2” and was in the 170’s a couple years back and never was bullied. I was running extensively so was in good shape. Now I’m 190lbs. Still pretty slender for my height.

I wonder how that's supposed to work.
