    LOL, North Carolina.

    And a lot of it is indirect comments. When you see an image of a woman with a body similar to your own called out as being unhealthy/unattractive OR worse yet, women with smaller and better bodies called out as being fat, it's not all that much different than being called it directly.

    Imagine being a 15 year old size 10 girl and reading all about how size 6 Christina Aguilera is a heifer. Or being a say, 250 lb woman reading about a 133 lb woman calling herself fat and sloppy.

    Now, men don't do this shit.... except dear Choco did.

    Now we can say "hey, grow a backbone" and that works for someone who is 39 with a list of shit to be damn proud of. But you know what, somewhere a 14 year old or a 16 year old is seeing this "body judging" shit playing out and not enjoying her life as much as she should. That just makes me mad.

    I guess most of you guys have never read any women's literature. I have a BA in women's studies. It's actually a common theme about how a woman's body becomes a public object subject to all kinds of things. It's not as simple as just thinking fuck them, none of their business.

    I know what you are thinking now, but a women's studies degree had me reading more dead white men than almost any other degree other than philosophy. Plus I got to take pornographic film studies, which was incredibly rigorous and did NOT take the point of view that you are assuming that it did.
    Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
    I can squat 180lbs, press 72.5lbs and deadlift 185lbs

    In all seriousness, how does this work? Obviously, I am not a woman so do not know from experience, but how does one become a 'public object' and what exactly does that mean? Does it mean that 'the public' views it (the female form), comments on it, judges it, or something else entirely?

    Yes, I get the surface issue of it, but how is that different than many other things? Drive a POS car...some one comments. Are an overweight man...someone comments. Dress like crap...someone commets. How does that go from "some people are a$$holes" to "a woman's body is a public object"? Also, wtf is a public object?

    Then what is the solution? Is there a solution? You can't control what other people think. You can only control what you think.
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    I can't answer that, but can we all at least agree that a woman's body is, in fact, an object?
