being nice to people who are harassing you is a survival tactic. girls learn this by the time they turn 12, if you flat out tell a guy no, he’ll become angry & the situation will get worse, sometimes even violent. you are taught to be nice and let them down easy, which then you are accused of “leading them on”. There is no winning, you just got to choose which you find less horrible.
Why is it cute when a skinny girl eats a lot but it’s disgusting when a fat girl do exactly same thing.
I’m half afraid to even eat like a small amount in public because people stare like, “I have found the hippo in its natural habitat.”
stop judging, stop body shaming, stop telling people what they should eat and how they should look like!
I’ve noticed this so, so much. When I was 200+, people used to criticize me for my love of sweets (and food in general). If I polished off a plate, somebody would almost always have *something* negative to say about it. Now that I’m ~135, my co-workers think it’s cute and funny that I like to snack on cookies at work, and my dates think it’s “refreshing” that I finish my meal. Funny world we live in.

Hopefully something for you all to look at if you’re stuck in a line at SDCC like me.
