Q&A: Do you think some overweight people, don’t have repsect for people who are thinner then them?

Question by Andrew: Do you think some overweight people, don’t have repsect for people who are thinner then them?
I strongly feel that some overweight people, don’t have repsect for people who are thinner then them. I’m 20 years old, a college student, work part-time, and I work-out 5 or 6 days a week. I have a phobia of being overweight. I have nice biceps, and I can’t help showing them off. I almost have abs, and my goal is to get 6 pack abs.

Mostly everyone in my fathers family is overweight. Most of them have huge stomachs, and they are proud of it. I think having a huge stomach is disgusting, and that’s nothing to be proud of.

Last week I was at my fathers house, and most of his realives were there also. They were badmouthing guys with abs, because they know I’m trying to get 6 pack abs. I see a guy with 6 pack abs, and I wish I could be him. My fathers family thinks guys with abs are nasty. I was disagreeing with them, and saying how people with huge stomachs are nasty. They all got mad at me. Seriosuly I shouldn’t say on this web site all they were saying about about people who are thin. (In my opinion) Most people who are really overweight are losers, they don’t take care of themsleves. Guys with abs do take care of themeselfs. If you can’t diet, eat the right things, and work-out, that’s pretty bad. Who would want to be overweight? That’s just sick…Im proud of my body, and I almost have abs…

I don’t know dude, not that it matters or anything, but you sound pretty gay and self-obsessed.

  1. Well, part of it is definitely your attitude. You’re only in your 20s and trying to tell your father and the older people how to live, which is an insult to them. I’m 27 and would be turned off by your superficial attitude in a second. Remember that it isn’t all about you.

    There are also ethnic groups where, according to White standards, the people are ALL overweight. I’m Native American, and we tend to be shorter and rounder due to natural selection for our environment and what’s known as “thrifty genes” to help us out during hard times. We are physically different for a reason, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Again, it’s not all about you and what you think is right.

    You have your opinion of hating huge stomachs, an they have their opinion of hating abs. You disagree with each other and that’s fine – you don’t have to have the same views and opinions on everything. Just as long as it doesn’t get too personal and everyone is happy with what they look like, then there’s no need to fight about it. Just put it behind you and apologize if it’s brought up again and people are still upset.

    They all got mad at you because you made them feel bad about themselves! NEVER tell a room of overweight people that you think fat people are disgusting. Just because they have problems with weight doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings.
    I think you should think of the reverse of your question “why do thin people descriminate against fat people”- that is what you are doing.
    Good for you, you’re thin and fit, trying to get a 6 pack. Not everyone is able to do that. Just be happy with your progress without being vain and keep it to yourself.

    I don’t think that you should transfer the feelings your family has towards you onto all the people of earth who are overweight. I think this issue is more about YOU and how your family feel about you than the rest of us. Perhaps you are a jerk about how you treat them? Or perhaps you devote more time to developing your body than your mind and they think you are stupid. I really don’t know.

  5. I thought this was a strange question the first time you posted it and still think it is strange.

    I don’t believe that you are viewing the situation correctly and that you are a little self absorbed.

  6. I personally think it’s the other way around.
    I see mostly average sized people making fun of over weight people, like our overweight classmate in school who is usually teased by the thin guys.

    Weight is relative, what is thin to one is overweight to another. As a society, we place far to much significance on the size and shape of people’s bodies, when hearts, minds, and souls are what we should be concerned with.

    My question to you is, why would you want a six pack? Over exercising your rectus abdominis is actually bad for you; it throws your back out of alignment, from the constant pulling exerted by the muscles when the are overly enlarged. You really should be attempting to strengthen the transverses abdominis, which are the deep abdominal muscles, the ones that stabilize your core and support your back.

    Most people that I have encountered that want cut muscles (including six pack abs) tend to be self-centered if not downright narcissistic; being absorbed by their own perceived, physical beauty and insensitive to others in general; much like you show at the end of this post.

    There is a lot more to life than working out, and there is a great deal more to people than their physique.
