Plus, this was in DC, and DC fire and rescue has a record for being insensitive to those they deem 'less than;' an insensitivity that has allowed people to die.

What I do to reclaim my own humanity when I see those sorts of stickers (this also works on those tacky 'Calvin peeing' window decals) is to remind myself that these stickers are simply warning the populance that the car owners are immature, ignorant, and insecure, so that we can all stay clear of them. Think of these stickers as a public service announcement about douchebags.
I totally agree. We actually should be grateful for the heads-up!

I was really hoping that was just an example, and didn't actually exist in real life. A quick Google search shows my hope was in vain. "I have a dick so I make the rules"??!!

Can you imagine the reactions if a woman had a bumper sticker that said "No short dicks"?

Ahh, but you know the old joke, right? Women are bad at math because men keep telling them that this |-------------------------------------| is 8 inches.

[Actually, I don't think women are bad at math, but I've had the men who lied about both height and length. I'm wondering how they didn't think I'd find out if things progressed they way they wanted, which was the reason for the lie in the first place. ]

How bothered I am tend to depend on mood that day. There have been times when I've laughed and gone, "Like I'd want to ride a guy with that as his ride?" Then there have been other days when I've been disgusted; these times however are more at the fact that women in general can be treated this way, just not me personally.
Bumper stickers like that just don't have a rhythm or reason. Who knows, maybe its from the jerk who owned the car before?

Ugh..I remember I went to a battery shop to get a new battery for my car and a truck was parked in the employee parking lot with a "no fat chicks" sticker on it. I didn't know which guy it was, there were 3 different ones working there. I know I kept kinda looking like "which one is the fatty hater? Is it this guy helping me?" Dickheads. Way to alienate customers too. :-/

You're in Washington... This wouldn't be near the Kent/Auburnish area would it??? I know a jackass who had a low rider truck with a "No Fat Chicks" sticker, and another that said, "Fat Chicks Make My Tail Drag"...

Ironic thing... this fucker was about 380 himself. Short fat guy.

lolololol...

When reading most of the posts mentioning that many of the stickers were on "trucks"...the whole "compensating" for something else thought came to mind

This afternoon, I saw an " I (heart) fat girls" sticker on a motorscooter.

Perhaps that whole compensation thing works in the other direction too...

I've always wanted a sticker that says "Fat's where it's at" ...

I've seen a few of the stickers that take a jab at fat girls ... Like the "fat girls can't jump" ... Little did they know I grew up driving big trucks. This fatty knows how to get up in a rig!! lol

And the "No Fat Chicks" ... I knew someone who had this one their truck. I was friends with his sister, who was fat, as was his mother! Bet they were proud!

Those stickers are awful! It is like being fat is the last prejudice where certain people believe, stupidly, it is OK to voice a disapproving opinion when they should keep their opinions to themselves! We would never do this in regards to race, sexism, sexuality, religion etc but someone somewhere thinks it's acceptable to air a sh*tty and incorrect opinion to try to make another innocent human being feel bad about themselves. These people are toxic but heaven forbid someone should target the "soft spot" they have... It's all tiaras and tantrums on the other foot.

These people are blind to the beauty in everyone and that is their loss NOT ours xXx
