My SO's daughter gets this backwards ass vitriol a LOT. She's naturally very skinny. She's also very active at her job. And she's 5'10". She's got a model's physique people would envy. Always has. Yet strangers feel free to comment on her body constantly, telling her she needs to eat more. They assume she's starving herself. And it takes a toll. Christ. The girl is putting away thousands of calories a day. Her job is physical and her metabolism is off the charts. Some would call her lucky, but I think it is likely as miserable to have to seemingly eat constantly the way she does. There are times she's exhausted from a long day at work, but still has to eat before bed, else she'll wake up starving in the middle of the night. Comments cut both ways, skinny or not.
