Do we have to like looking at him with a shirt off because its politically incorrect not to?

No ... and he doesn't. I'm just saying (to the person I quoted) that you can't just assumed that because someone is obese, they're not trying to do something about it.

I would say good for them but also be kind of grossed out at the same time. I'm not gonna lie, seeing morbidly obese people in various forms of undress bothers me just as much as seeing your average man in a speedo or woman in a teeny bikini. It just grosses me out most of the time. I'm all about feeling comfortable with your body and I actually think nudity should be allowed in certain situations (like at the beach) but that doesn't stop me from being a little uncomfortable. On a logical level I can recognize that everyone should be comfortable with people's' bodies no matter how they look but on an emotional and even instinctual level I am turned off by really obese people, plain and simple.

This, exactly.

I'm a firm believer in wearing clothing that not only fits but covers all your bits. I'd probably take notice, roll my eyes, then look away. I know what it's like to want an all over tan.

I am so glad that you are equating obesity to STD's. Because, you know, all the time I put into the gym, the hours I spend kicking my own ass, the miles I've run in order to stay fit despite my body's refusal to lose weight is EXACTLY the same as sleeping around without a condom.

Right?



I would notice I'm sure and then wish I had their confidence.

Flaunt it? Maybe they just like the suit?
And it's really no one's concern if they want to wear it. If they shouldn't wear a two piece, no one should.

Are skinny women flaunting it too?

Thought #2: See? She has stretchmarks and doesn't care...why do I?



Thought #3: Swimming time!!!

I would probably say "gross" (in my head) and have a little giggle over it. If my husband was with me, we would probably be cracking jokes with each other. We don't have anything against fat people. We just always shit talk people who we think look a bit ridiculous whether its bad hair, bad makeup or fat ladies looking distasteful on a beach.
