Telling a pig not to eat is like telling John Edwards not to lie and cheat.

While I agree to a certain extent, I also believe that women shouldn't be called such terms as fatties, and sows either.

I'm 5'8" and 155 lbs (then again I've had a baby and lost over 50lbs of baby weight so far and still trying to lose the last 20) and do you realize how many times I've been referred to by these terms all because I gained weight from a simply pregnancy?? That's freakin crazy, that people are that cruel to eachother. There's no need for it.

Its not something I asked for, it happened in my pregnancy due to my bad genes from my mother. I was a 130 lbs, size 6, with 6 pack abs before I became pregnant. Now I'm about 20 lbs away from my goal, and even so ill never be able to wear a bikini again, due to the large number of stretch marks.

So yea I am a little offended by that comment, because as a person that actually works their ass off to get in shape, I get sick of the fat jokes just because I had a kid. I'm actually kinda glad it happened, its humbled me. But its still bothersome. Grow up!

Not everyone wants to looked starved, on crack, and have no boobs or ass on top of that!

Quite frankly its the one thing I did like, the boobs and ass I received from my pregnancy.

You say no fatties, I say no skinny boys that I crack heads. I like muscles. Lol
