    I think we can bubble wrap stuff too much now days, the world can be a very cruel place so in my opinion it's best hardening up as early as possible so you are better able to deal with what it can throw at you.
    I dunno, I think we've merged into assholery. Like really, do you think it was OK to make the rendering lard comment about the sumo women? Unsolicited?

    I'm all about being honest with people, and don't believe in staying PC for criticism. But at the same time, being critical starts to tear people down. I don't think it does any good to tell someone who is fat "oh, you are just plush" or "oh, you are curvy and awesome". But heck, if they are strong, you do need to preface that by pointing out that they are not attractive. But jeez, they do need constant feedback that they are fat. I mean, at least your dad's criticism was targeted. It's not like you struggled with homework and he called you a chicken shit

      In my culture house wifes for some reason often call their husbands "Gordo" or "fatso" even if he is thin like a straw...

        I just don't think being easily butt hurt due to content and jokes on teh internetz is the way to go.
        My ass isn't hurt. I just feel badly for the women in the photos and want to let people know that it's an asshole thing to do. To be honest, if I put up a photo of me deadlifting and you said "ooo, a whale" I'd probably not say a thing and feel like crap about myself. It's not cool to make people feel like crap about themselves, unsolicited. It's not useful. For all I know, the women in those photos might come beat you up, agree with you or be like "hell yeah, I'm big and proud". And that would be awesome.

            To get some balance between the sexes here; How do you feel when you see a man lifting heavy? Personally I would say that becoming fat for the reason of lifting more is not very primal and that being healthy should be more important than lifting more just for the sake of lifting more! But that's just my personal view since I can still admire a well performed lift;

                I'd not read the whole thread so missed that comment, I do agree that comments such as that are out of order. regarding those girls, however, I have a good friend who lived for many years in Japan and he said the sumo wrestlers are sex symbols over there in the same way that rock stars are in many other parts of the world. Those girls are probably getting Japanese equivalents of Brad Pitt throwing themselves at them every night, I doubt comments about their weight would bother them too much.

                    Whooops, careful OldSchool, some of the power-lifter wannabes around here can get their tender feelings butt hurt...

                        That would be true if female sports were as popular as male sports. Not sure about Japan, but in the West, from Ancient Greece on, female competitions were not exactly generating the same interest as the male ones. I mean, who've ever heard of the Heraean Games? But the Olympics, well, yes, of course.

                        • How appropriate is this, just clicked on a British newspaper site that I read and this was the first headline:

                          Obese Mike Waudby tried to kill himself when he was 33st - now he's shed 18st and is nicknamed Mr Muscles | Mail Online


                          I think women can be even crueler than men at times !

                          • Here is another example of my PC Dad !

                            One day he had gone to the works canteen for his daily salad and he witnessed a group of obese female co workers sat round a table discussing their diet woes. My dad goes over and said " I was reading an article today that said that obesity was often cause by an over active........over active....errrm ", one of the women jumps in " Thyroid ", my dad says " No, over active knife and fork !". Needless to say he had to make a run for it !!!

If they ask you if you find them attractive, fine, be honest. But otherwise keep your thoughts to yourself. Maybe these women would rather attain athletic achievements then be considered sex symbols.


                              That's a fucking asshole comment too. Fucking asshole comments like that are why women don't work out, puke up their food and starve themselves.

                                Lol at giving other people the power to "make" you do things. Can you make me become a drunk again? Go ahead and try. I will never give you that power. And you should never let my words "make" you do things. That is frailty, weakness, and a victim mentality.
