I still don't get that. When a thin woman complains about how fat she is, I usually just kept my mouth shut, because as everyone's mom used to say; if you can't say something nice... etc.

This is *very* familiar to me. I saw all the people around me trying to be as thin as possible, and it filled me with an incredible sense of the wrongness of it all; like they were unbalancing the universe, and somehow, I had to "make up" for them.
