I agree with this. I'm super short, less than 5'3" and at home my scale says 135 while at the doctor it said 142. So when some tall lady calls herself a whale or fat cow when she weighs so much less than me, I can only imagine what she would think of me if she saw me. It's like a virus when women say stuff like this about themselves, a virus that transfers to the rest of us and to our children.

I've got a very linear, chunky body with a thick waist, generous legs and too much upper arm size. I don't fill out anything in a manner that turns heads in this country. In rural India I turn heads and even stop traffic. Maybe I should go there instead.
