Wow, I had to read all the posts before I came to the only charitable quote in the bunch. Mind you, there were 60 posts.
When I dress to go to the store, I really do not care what the other shoppers think. I do not know them. I only care about paying the account and getting out of there. As far as going to a store where the clerks...the CLERKS ignore me because I am not dressed to the nines to take my clothes off and try on theirs, they can forget my business. I better not catch them at it either. The lady with the complaint about the woman breastfeeding her child, too bad you were insulted. I guess it would have been okay for the kid to run down the aisles screaming because he was hungry. I personally think it is great that women are actually using their breasts for feeding children instead of for "snagging some man." Must she be relegated to some uncomfortable bathroom? Where do you suggest she go?

I go back to the song that has the lyrics "what if god were one of us, just a stranger on a bus trying to find his way home." Some of those folks may not have "better" or may have lost their jobs and then gained the weight. You know the thrift store just might not have their perfect size. Not everyone buys their clothes off the rack at Macy's, or Nordstrom's.
So maybe when you are out there looking, and I am sure some of you are staring, think good thoughts. Send good vibrations out into the world instead of critical ones. I know that most of you are kind, caring people, I have seen your work and read your posts about your charity work. So, put some of that charity to work here too. Don't be so critical. Work on yourself and cut those sloppy, unkempt people a break. That may be the only break they get all day.
End of rant.

Yes - I often say to my DH, 'don't they have a mirror'!

I continue to be amused by the"gangsta" look. You know, the sagging pants, and oversize shirts? I wonder how many "gangstas" are aware that that fashion started in prisons as a way to let other prisoners know you are "available" for secual favors. Look it up, it is true. As far as PJ's, that is the most slovenly look I see, other than the mini tank tops on people of a certain size.....yech! (I am of a certain size myself, but worry about others perceptions of me so I wear only real clothes made for street wear, all cotton of course!)

This post is incredibly inappropriate - is anyone else shocked that this thread is continuing ???? This is from a Forum Board Member ? ?

for the record: i am fat enough that a lot of stores don't carry my size.
i am not a victim.
people who tell the truth about those of us who eat too much and don't exercise enough - or at all - are not mean.
and if - on top of that - we go out into public dressed as though we wear a size 3 and work a pole, those who criticize are also not mean or judgmental. they tell a truth we just don't like to hear.

fine. i will close the thread.
but i offer no apologies for my own post.
people - including me - need to take responsibility for the results of their choices.
if my feelings get hurt because of my size then i have only myself to blame.
