I know weight is a touchy subject and that it can be damaging to have someone comment on it. Any size, really, but especially when one is overweight. However, is there a point where we just can't keep quiet? I am very sympathetic to the "fat-shaming" movement. Only because I get that we are all different shapes and sizes. When I see someone clearly not taking care of themselves and gulping food down, I find it hard to hold my tongue and am annoyed. There are two significant males in my life who are overweight. I can't stand the way they eat and how much they eat. I think the worst part is knowing how insecure they are about it but they aren't doing anything to change it. My boyfriend eats the worst food at the worst times (Bread with nacho cheese for breakfast!) and barely chews his food before gulping it down and going for seconds. Now, he's been more mindful of his lifestyle, so I don't mind as much. He's learning to take his time while he eats and is eating the right foods at the right times. Then there is my younger brother, who eats everything in sight at all times. He is disgusting. He contaminates everything with his dirty hands and eats loudly. I think he eats just to eat with little to no consideration that the rest of us need to eat too. He's in the other room eating cereal right now, and I can hear all the munching and slurping and swallowing as he holds the cereal box hostage, no doubt going for seconds. Am I wrong to be repulsed and concerned by this? Am I wrong to want to point him to a healthier direction? Healthier doesn't mean eating less, it just means eating better and at the right times. This kid will have 4 meals in a day, then come down to eat before he goes to bed, THEN comes down for a midnight snack, oh and eats whatever anyone else cooks for themselves along the way. I remember making a cheese pizza for myself because everyone decided to have a hearty steak instead (I'm vegetarian). After his meal, this kid STILL decides to take a few slices of my pizza. Does this annoyance and disgust make me a fat-shamer? I get annoyed when skinny people do this too (eat everything with little regards to everyone else needing portions, eating loudly, etc) but I haven't seen many skinny people do it... only fat people seem to eat like their a vacuum.
