    Maybe, but thinking "I'm going to pass on the cupcake because I want to look better (or remain looking better) than you" isn't the same as thinking "I am better than you", since people are assessed on more than weight. But the way you're talking, and maybe you're just being provocative, I don't know, and I respect that you're comfortable with your shadow, yada yada, but it sounds like you do make that jump.

    You can't stop taking people seriously just because they're fat. That's not fair. Letting them be a reminder/check of your own fitness is fine by me (I mean how could you not? that bit is natural).

    Yeah I don't really think I am better in like any kind of absolute sense. Just a mate selection one, which for me is kinda the same thing as "am" maybe, because what else matters?
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Given that premise I guess I concede the point : p

    I'm assuming that if you are "flouncing" that you are a female? LOL (I have no idea if that's a verb or what it means)

    I have none of these feelings for fat women...I loooooove me some paleolithic corpulent goddesses; it's more about skin and hair I think.

    I do take care though in my environment to hide my contempt, because I generally hate seeing people afraid or excluded or uncomfortable, but, this doesn't mean that I do not feel good about being sexier than them.

    flounce
    /flouns/
    Verb
    Go or move in an exaggeratedly impatient or angry manner: "he stood up in a fury and flounced out".
    Trimmed with a flounce or flounces.
    Noun
    An exaggerated action, typically intended to express one's annoyance or impatience.
    A wide ornamental strip of material gathered and sewn to a piece of fabric; a frill.

    Yes I am female, and not terribly mollified that your self professed hatred of fatties is only for the males who are overweight. Or perhaps I am confused.

    Who knows.

    Contempt isn't hatred. I'd define Contempt maybe as,

    "The positive and often euphoric sensation that accompanies sensory data that communicates one's superiority to those around one relative to a given attribute."

    Hooray internet for allowing us to make public the thoughts we would normally keep to ourselves behind a cloak of relative anonymity.

    Seriously, we all have thoughts we'd be too ashamed/polite to admit to in public. Probably several times a day. It doesn't mean we're bad people. Just real ones.

    The OP didn't say at all that she judged the person she saw, only that her reaction after seeing the person was to just choose the sparkling water over what likely would have been a totally unsatisfying cafeteria-crap muffin. I don't see anything wrong with this, and I applaud her for having the cojones to say it here, fully admitting in her first sentence it is super bitchy.

    And yes, I have been morbidly obese. This time ten years ago, I weighed in the neighbourhood of 345lbs (5'7" female, 23 at the time). I knew full well that people thought I was repulsive...but those were people who I didn't know, weren't part of my life, didn't f*cking matter one bloody bit. I thought I was awesome (on the inside) and those I chose to share my life with saw me for me, not the extra 180 pounds of fat on my body. Those 180 pounds are gone now, and those same people that loved me then still love me now. And there are still some people out there who'll call me a fat bitch (including one to my face in the grocery store parking lot three weeks ago) and, guess what? I still don't care what a stranger thinks about me.
    You know what, you are right. I need to stop caring what others think.
    Thanks.
