It gets better....unless you're fat

Interesting Buzzfeed piece...

by Anonymousreply 3210/11/2013

You should check out Google for a pic of the writer's boyfriend.

See if you can guess whether he's fat or not.

The mirror has two faces, bitches.

Well, one could easily say: "It gets better....unless you are:





Lower Income


And so forth.......

It sounds like he has more of a problem with his weight than other people do.

It's not even the fat hate, it's the fact that people will openly say stuff. I've been with a wonderful guy for 7 years now, and he is a pretty big guy. It just chaos my ass when rancid Queens say stuffabout his size, "I don't understand how you can be attracted to that!" Or my favorite, "you could do SO much better!" Really? Could I? This guy treats me like a fucking King, and he doesn't make shit out of people's spouses in front of them. yeah, tough choice there. ..

Dan Savage hates fat people, and ugly people, too.

It's a difficult one to break - especially for us former fatties.

ROFL @R5 - The guy is a fucking dog! He has NEVER been the least bit attractive in my eyes. He should not talk about ugly people in any way.

R3 ENOUGH with the poor-me song and dance that Asians do. Ironically, Asians only perpetuates the warped standard of beauty the gay community has. They are the epitome of "fuck you, got mine": if Asians found their white husband, they'd all shut up, the selfish fuckers.

You're honestly a loathsome bunch and unlike white guys who might (shockingly enough) concede ignorance and try to change their exclusive sexual paradigms, you'll just continue to chase white men who, in a delicious twist of irony, will not have you. LOL!

Sorry if I come across as vehement, or hateful. I'm not; I just get annoyed when I see Asian guys bleating about any discrimination they face in the dating game - the very discrimination they happily dole out in spades whenever they can. Other ethnic groups man up and learn to love themselves.

There was a time when I'd politely ask guys why they're so antagonistic about their, "No Asians" and usually I'd get through to them. I don't bother anymore. I don't condone it, but I don't condemn it, either. You reap what you sow, Asian men.

Fat like Tim Tebow?

Well, that guy guy who killed himself wasn't fat. He was just getting older and losing his looks. I think it's even harder for someone like that. A least fatties tend to develop their minds and personalities. Also, they can lose weight and feel great about themselves at any age. I've seen it happen--someone who never got any attention all the sudden is getting praise for losing weight and becoming fit. They feel on top of the world. But someone who's always been beautiful is in for a tough time when their looks start to fade.

He needs to get off the damn cross.

I'll bet.

Embrace you, or fuck you?

Because I don't see you fucking a lot of fat guys either.

It gets better... unless you have a small and/or ugly dick.

They can't embrace you because they can't get their arms around you.

Say what you want about Madonna, at least she didn't turn into 300 lbs of swine.

by Anonymousreply 1810/10/2013

She's turned into 85 lbs of plastic and gristle, R18. If she were fat she wouldn't look wonderful, but at least she'd look like a human being.

Define "better"

I think he means really fat like this...

by Anonymousreply 2110/10/2013

It's so unappealing to look at.

He should lose the weight.

DL is full of fat losers who carry the stench of failure.

by Anonymousreply 2410/11/2013

The difference is basically because being gay is usually not seen as a choice or someone's fault, while being fat, on the other hand, is.

Gay men have been mistreated so they learn to mistreat others in turn.

Umm... has he tried losing weight?

I googled the whinebag author of this nonsense, and this was the first result:

Something else occurred during that week, however, which received very little notice. On October 11th, Louis Peitzman, an evenings and weekend editor who had worked for Gawker since January, wrote on his Twitter: "I'm out at Gawker, effective immediately. Thank you to those of you who have read and supported my work there. It's been stressful but fun." No reason was given and no official announcement was made on the website. Usually when a writer leaves amicably there will be a farewell post. I began looking for a possible reason why Louis had left, and soon found one.

One day earlier, on October 10th, Louis had written this post about an unverified photo that allegedly showed Justin Bieber posing nude in a full-frontal position. As of this writing, the post has received over 216,000 pageviews. Louis spent the post comparing the body in the picture with what was publicly known about the 18-year-old Bieber. In the comments section, several readers expressed concern over the material:

GregSamsa: "I hope Gawker confirmed that whomever posed for this pic is not underage."

Cherith Cutestory: "Is posting a naked photo of someone who seems to be quite young without confirming age really such a good idea? And if it is Justin and it is even just a year old that is child porn."

heatherisonfire: "The shaven pubes add more to the pre-pubescent body "child porn"y aspect of this. I know he's 18 but other than his junk, it doesn't seem like the kid has hit puberty fully yet."

coochifritos: "I feel like a pedophile just for clicking on this article."

Jane, you ignorant slut. (Adah): "He's 18 now, right? I'm not going to jail for even clicking on this article?"

Sol_Invictus: "Not concerned that it might be him and that it might have been taken before he was 18?"

Kimber Bakke: "Ahhh yes, this purported photo brings the hebophile out in the best of us!"

meshugganner: "CP on Gawker? Wait until reddit finds out about this."

Later, Louis had to issue an update: As many commenters have pointed out, the bellybuttons do not match, so we can say conclusively that the naked guy is not Justin Bieber. Because some people were concerned about the age of the person in the nude photo, it has been removed.

The next day Louis was gone from Gawker. Was the Justin Bieber post the reason, or am I just being susceptible to the old 'post hoc' fallacy?

Isn't he confusing "the LGBT community" with "all the hot guys I lust after"? And confusing "acceptance" with "attracted to me and will fuck me"?

The message of "It Gets Better" is not that you will no longer have to face social rejection or failure once you come out (sorry, that's just life); it's that if you can make it past adolescence, you'll reach a point where you'll be free to determine the life you want to lead and surround yourself with friends and family of your choosing, rather than being forced to live in the hell of your parents' roof or your homophobic high school. There's no guarantee you'll be happy or accepted (no one, gay or straight, gets that guarantee); but at least it's something you can choose to fight for if you want.

Instead of judging "acceptance" by whether the hot guys on Fire Island will give him their number, why doesn't he work at the local LGBT center, or volunteer with an HIV / AIDS organization, or join an interest group like a sports league or book club. Sure, looks will still have an indirect influence on how people interact with him, but they're much less important in those contexts.

I don't know, I found the article incredibly naive and shallow, trying to tear down a positive campaign and message by claiming promises were broken that were never really promises to begin with.
