    I'm kinda OCD myself...among other little oddities. I hate crowds....and being in crowds. It would make my day if people DID go out of their way NOT to sit next to me.

    OMG....have I mentioned how ANGRY I can get sitting in a movie theatre and people sit next to us/me.....or ~EGADS!!~ dare to sit In Front Of....ME!!!!! :p

    I consider someone blessed if they have enough space without being crowded by strangers ;)

    I would stretch out, put my legs up and enjoy my ride home LOL

    Screw those people, I'd sit by you and probably start a conversation :D

    Oh wait you don't want me to sit with you because I have a fat bum too LOL, ok so I'd stand by you and at least treat you like a person ;)

    I've experienced this on the subway here in NYC as well, even in the "new" trains that are extra-roomy for ample american asses. However, given the premium on space during rush hour, people have then braved it and I've seen how surprised they are when they actually fit! Perhaps they have poor depth perception. :)

    OMG ya mean I am OCD??????????????????????????????? :eek: :eek:

    We just went to see "Fools Gold" on Sunday, there were 7 of us in the entire movie theater....and not only did some weirdo come and sit RIGHT next to us...but an older couple staggered in right in the middle of the first few minutes of the show and sat directly in front of us...took them about 10 minutes to get settled "pop, move over, your elbow is poking me, stop whispering, everyone can HEAR YOU" I wanted to kick the seat...how exasperating....WE got up and moved! :doh:

    I'm not into this category but:

    1 - Stop bullying bigger children jusy because of their size.

    2 - Unless you undertake some kidney transplant and that the giver used to be an overweight person with some severe eating binge issues, obesity is not a contagious... matter-of-factly, that is not even an ailment whatsoever. Stop treating people fitting into such range of size as if they were leperous. If you'd post-Flower Power arse had learnt how to not treat both VIH-stricken and neuroatypical people like subhumans, you can certainly does for bigger people as well.

    3 - If your entire prejudices about bigger people are based upon Disney animated movies (let alone Disney movies all short, seems how they treated Thor and StarLord in their latest bestselling Marvel flops) , tabloid magazines, Aryan-looking dolls, high-school Alpha B***es dolls and social medias, then perhaps you should consult a therapeutist.
    Sincerely, do it. That's not healthy.

    4 - Stop quoting XTina or pre-2009 Rihanna or (even more bonier) 2015-era Rihanna as models of extreme thinness to follow, we're in the brim of the New Twenties for Bast's sake! Even XTina gets XXLTina at some point and if that foolish manager of hers hadn't publically threatened to ruin her career, she would be the first (alleged) high-skit gainer in the showbizz game today.

    5 - Leave your seat to the nearby morbidly obese person while being in a public transport vehicle... except if he/she's a jerk. I am never kind with jerks.

    6 - Hush, Bill Maher. We don't care about your opinion, your poor aging devil.

    7 - Remember: these young female feedees are oftentimes the most insecure, emotionally stunted people in the game... even when they confidently claim everything is okay, nothing is okay.

    8 - Hush, Azealia Banks. You're not skinny anyway and has going to get fat very soon, then stop hollering out about Rihanna's size.

    9 - Just let people being themselves (unless they're Kevin Spacey, Bill Cosby or Donald Trump) .

    I know what I wish people who work in B&T stores and other stores that stock menswear in larger size knew about fat people. I wish they knew that we want the same sort of clothes that everyone else can buy. I don't like being told, "Yes, sir, we have that in your size and in three nice slimming colours: black, navy blue and bottle green." I don't want to look slim, because it's not what I am, I'm happy being fat and I manage to get dates without looking slim. It particularly annoys me to be offered nice slimming colours by sales assistants in B&T stores.

    I can’t add much more other than to say I wish people wouldn’t think I don’t like myself. I like myself very much. I’m not on a self-destructive mission, or have a death wish. I finally discovered myself, and that is being a fat man who finds himself sexy and wants to get fatter. It’s my choice to not fight my body. It wants to be fat. Fortunately, as I’m getting older I’m surrounded by mostly overweight people. Getting older and fatter seem to go hand in hand.

    I wish they would know that...

    I don't want to talk about being fat as a kind of disease that I could easily change if I only want to and try hard enough. And been offered support on that after mentioning that is none of their business.
    "But I care about your health" - well, my health is still none of your business.

    I feel insulted when I tell what happens to me when I am out as a fat woman on streets or wherever I am and they don't believe or give me a feeling it could be made up by me.

    it is the truth. They yell at me, they say very insulting things, and yes, there are people out in this world they have spat on me, just bc i am fat - spat even right in my face. Happened 15 years ago but I still can remember what I felt back then.
    And when I talk about this occasion and someone shows as reaction that this might have been made up - I regret telling right away even if people should know that it happens.
    They have no idea.

    I wish that they knew that fat is part of who and what I am. So, that's where the discussion about me losing weight is going to end.
