you do realize that the moment you get a gym membership and diet plan the weight doesn't just disappear right? My SO is morbidly obese. He's got a gym membership, see's a dietician, and a personal trainer ... does that mean he shouldn't be allowed to have his shirt off at the beach and be proud of what he's acheived? Or does he have to wait until he's 'attractive' enough?

This is true. I used to be morbidly obese and it took forever to get down to just "overweight"!

i would think literally nothing of it. i dont wear two pieces but really its because i need a bathing suit with a bra type top to support my saggy b**bs and they dont make them in bikini style bathing suits in my size. (42G) i would just walk past or sit down next to them if we were friends lol.

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.

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.

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.
