    It depends on the person but what most people seem to ignore is , everyone isn't thick skinned and it can follow that person for life resulting in eating disorders.

    I have actually seen that statement thrown around on social media and it gets to me as a petite woman. I agree with you , it's like the crabs in a barrel effect trying to reach the top while stepping on someone else.

    Good point , just compliment the person not their weight because weight doesn't define beauty.

    Respect starts at home and if it's not taught it will definately show. That is why most of the time people look at the parents for wrongdoings of the child.
