To reply on this question from the inside: As a German FA, happily married to a BBW, but not supersize, I always find, that it depends a lot on the region, what is happening. In the South of Bavaria people might joke openly about your figure, because people there tend to make jokes about everything, but beyond that, the same people will prove very nice and caring. In Hassia, where I am currently living, people will not care a lot, because privacy is an important value. Going to the North and to the East, people are less tolerant in all questions and in the far Northeast, tolerance is something non-existing. The hometown of my wife is in that corner of Germany and my wife often complained about being nagged. Today she says, she hears more bad remarks in two weeks at home, than in five years here.
Concerning the scooters, I have seen them only a few times in my life. They are rare in Germany, but also in the rest of Europe. And noone would offer them for free use!
But in Europe most things are of smaller size compared with the US
My experience has always been the exact opposite, i.e. that tolerance dramatically decreases the farther south you go in Germany. The only real problems I face in cities like Hamburg or Bremen is cobble stone streets, whereas in Bavaria there is a lot of staring and whispering rather loudly. Yes, people will usually help very kindly, when you ask, or even offer themselves, but they do that mostly anywhere in Germany. For acceptance by people on the street and official institutions though, you couldn't pay me to move south of Hassia longterm.

People in my country town are absolutely fine with me using a scooter. They are actually very positive about it.

The only time someone said anything was an out of town person, who said under her breath that I would not need a scooter if I wasn't so fat.

I looked at her and said " I have Multiple Sclerosis"

She shut up after that.:rolleyes:
I was shopping recently when I bumped into an SSBBW whom I know slightly. She was using a scooter because she'd recently broken her foot. This is a pretty small town, and most people know her, at least by sight, but on this occasion there was no getting away from the fact that the look on many people's faces said,as clearly as if they'd had thought bubbles floating over their heads, "Look at her,she's got so fat she can't even walk round the shop any more". She's a good person, and probably didn't wish for their slow and painful deaths, but...

My first time in Germany I had a very radical look. I wore dredlocks and I had lots of piercings. My belly was exposed because I had a new piercing on my belly button that was still healing and I didn't want anything touching it. I found that people didn't give me as much problem then. When I went to Germany a second time all of the piercings had been removed and I was much more average looking. I found people to be a bit more confrontational that time. I think the first time maybe I was a bit more intimidating or people could surmise from my appearance that I was a non-conformist anyway and maybe my size was an act of rebellion?

My wife, who suffers with cardiomyopathy, purchased her own scooter 2 years ago, because she was having increasing difficulty walking any distance without becoming out of breath. Many stores in the US have mobility scooters available for use by patrons free of charge. We have traveled for vacation to Las Vegas the past two years. Under US ADA rules, people with mobility scooters may ride them to the airplane door when traveling. The scooter is then taken to the luggage compartment and is unloaded first at our destination to be placed at the door of the plane for her to disembark. At the hotel/casinos I was having difficulty keeping up with her on her scooter, so we contacted the concierge and learned that the hotels rent scooters to guests. So I have rented a scooter while on vacation so we both have equal mobility and stamina on sightseeing and shopping excursions.
If any of you have to use a scooter in the company of a walker, please remember that they are walking and thus tire sooner and need to sit. My ex-GF had to use a scooter because of her knees (being a BBW didn't help, but it really was her knees) and she'd run me ragged zipping around the store while I was walking everywhere.

While taking a second scooter as you do does solve that problem, I wouldn't dream of using one solely because she was, just because I'd feel so guilty about it. Not saying you should feel guilty, BTW, only that I would.

I don't think a scooter necessarily makes a fat woman sexier but it certainly doesn't make her less sexy. Scooters are just plain cool because they help you move about. Both my wife and I are pretty fat by now and both of us have used scooters in the past temporarily due to injuries. I had a badly twisted ankle a few years ago and happily used the walmart and costco scooters to go shopping. My wife broke her leg two years ago and used a scooter then. So I totally support all the ssbbw scooter users out there.

You make a good point actually. When I am using my scooter and I am with friends, I always slow the speed down to match the pace of whoever is walking next to me.
As Bbw's and SSBBW's we sometimes need accomodations made for us, but it is also polite to make accomodations for our Partners/friends who are accompanying us.

While visiting a friend stationed in Brunswick ME several years ago. (they still had a NAS then) We were visiting a local grocery store when I was "bumped" by a ssbbw on her scooter. She was horrified, and apologized saying she was having some issues with the brakes . . There was no harm done, but later on she actually got me again. . My friend's wife said she was "hitting on me", or literally hitting me as it were, and I should acknowledge it. . Over the course of my stay in ME I did get the opportunity to spend some time with her. . It wasn't destined to be, but hey! You just never know what life is going to send your way!!

I will go on record to say that Germany is very behind in being "behindertongerecht", handicapped accessible, and it has to do with the lack of laws requiring them to BE this way. The US has the Disabilities Act, Germany has no such requirements, so they don't HAVE to have an elevator in all office buildings(most do), or ramps, handrails, etc.

This is just my opinion and experience living here...and it might be different in other areas, too.
I´m sorry to pull this old post up but I wanna say something about what you mentioned in your post.
You´re right on one hand. Not all of our buildings have elevators, ramps etc.
Mostly those are old buildings and under monument protection. So the owners aren´t allowed to change anything on the inner/outside. Depends, what´s worth to protect.
But we do have a law to protect and "help" disabled people. It´s also mentioned in our constitution (if you are interested, Art.3, paragraph 3, 2nd sentence Grundgesetz).
About the law, it´s called BGG (Gesetz zur Gleichstellung behinderter Menschen).
And in every federal state you´ve a "Behindertenbeauftragter".
If you wanna know more, just leave me a message. :)

About the scooters. I know a mall where you can rent some, some parks over wheelchairs but it´s true. You don´t see them often here (at least not in the area where I´m living) and if, then most of the time you see older people riding them.

Just my 2cents. Sorry again for pulling this old stuff up, but I felt the need to add some points, give more informations about the situation here in Germany. :)

Well done to the beautiful ladies rocking the scooter pictures, i'm jealous lol. In New Zealand you hardly see big men or women riding scooters only the elderly. I wish our supermarkets and malls had them because i'd totally jump on it and try to mow down my siblings who like to walk ahead of me lol.

I don't feel pity or judge those that have to use a scooter. Why should I, They're not in pain and they're comfortable and doing whatever they want and in style. Making a judgement about them using a scooter is wrong because you don't get to see them off the scooter. You don't get to see them carry their shopping into the house, pack it away and maybe start on dinner. If they hadn't used the scooter they would be so tired and sore and not have had that extra energy to do what they needed to do at home.

You can't put yourself in a big persons shoes and feel pity because we've been big most of our lives, this is our reality which we've gotten use to and catered to, mostly. If you got into a car accident and you lost the use of your legs of course you would feel sorry for yourself and maybe you'd be depressed but would you still be that way ten years later? Of would you have gotten over it and adjusted to your new reality? Started making a new life for yourself?

I hope more people post their scooterific pictures up and to those that are too embarrassed to use one because of what people are going to think well darlings you're a bbw/ssbbw, they're going to stare and judge you anyway as you walk past so why not just smile and wave from a scooter? lol. Seriously when are you going to see them again? lol.

PS to the person that started this thread, you sure do have beautiful eyes lol.

I just got my new scooter! Woo! Seven thousand dollars worth of Israeli technology. I call it Bibi, after Binyamin Netanyahu :D

I will post a pic of me riding it when I can get someone to take one.

I have been using scooters and power chairs for years - both mine and ones provided at stores in my area. None of the devices have had brakes - I just stop giving the device forward power to make it stop. A few times I have actually had to grab someone or physically push them aside to keep from hitting them tho - often this is a child running thru the store.

I love my scooter! It gave me my life back after years of being unable to go so many places.

Not a great picture of me, but...

Hello gorgeous, your health or scooter have nothing to do with your persona. Am sure your husband love U for who are. I will do the same. You look gorgeous.

I used to work in the south of Germany. Baden Wurttenberg. I even hitchhiked through the entire Schwarzwald.
People in the small towns were so friendly, there was not only a ride but often a dinner! In fact, people would sometimes return with cars and apologize for not stopping earlier. I assume this is no longer true in EU in general. :(
