i think we all know this one person…
i have a few friends who tend to say these things, and it makes me think, if they’re so skinny and somehow “see” themselves as fat, what do they see when they look at me? how disgusting do they think I am? because I actually am fat, It’s not just me feeling my thighs are huge, they are huge, for real,
ok but anorexia and bulimia are a thing? people who say things like that but aren’t “actually fat” could very well be suffering from an eating disorder. yes it probably hurts to hear your friends say things like this around you, but 9 times out of 10 they don’t see a problem with
you, it’s all in themselves. so while i get what this comic is trying to say for fat people, please don’t invalidate the experiences of others who could have a disorder that is out of their control.
literally making your friend’s self esteem problems about yourself is s h i t. like yeah you’re allowed to have hurt feelings but if you have a friend that is constantly putting themselves down and your response is “ugh WHAT ABOUT ME” you have b i g g e r i s s u e s.
