So, you're saying that me mentioning that you might want to gain some weight is the same as you telling me I might want to lose some?
Problem with that logic is that I dont take offense to those kind of remarks. Just like when some yo-yo calls me a drunk. I'm loving my life right now, so say what you want.

I don't go around telling people they could stand to lose a few pounds because talking of another's weight is rude.
Why is that rudeness exempt for thin, not thick?
Being naturally thin you think I'd be used to the crass remarks (I do work with lots of fat women)...guess I just have to remind myself they wish they looked as good as me.

Absolutely. Why the double standard? Mentioning anyone's weight is rude and none of anyone's business.
Receiver's possible reaction should not be a factor.

Like the lady who said to me, "you're too white." I bet she doesn't go around telling people, "you're too dark." My skin color-and her approval or not--are none of her rude business.
