    I love this one.

  2. fat girl says:

    i love it!

  3. Zot says:

    Just aim for 0 on both columns, regardless of body shape. It’s not that hard.

  4. dave says:

    How about instead of wasting time drawing cute little charts you get your fat ass out on the road for some PT? Seriously. Eat less. Run more. It’s pretty damn simple.

  5. Jessikanesis says:

    Eat less and exercise more? That IS simple! Thank you so much for MAN-splaining it to us, dave! We fat women never would have worked that out on our own, since we’re so preoccupied thinking about burgers, chocolate cake, and ways to avoid exercise.

    Nevermind that this graph was meant to make a statement on self-worth coming from something internal. Clearly you’re right, and this hypothetical woman from the graph wouldn’t have to put up with crappy boyfriends if she were just MORE ATTRACTIVE. That’s why thin women never have man problems!

    Clearly.

    BRAVO, Jessikanesis

    Jessikanesis: I’m about 99% sure he was being purposely sardonic so maybe instead of writing a long winded, and frankly dull response, go get a dictionary.
    Thanks you have been wonderful!

    Oh I love the MANsplaining line.
    I’m thin, in shape, and a pretty independent thinker these days.
    However, I had my share of stupid boyfriends who I was never thin enough for, or good enough for, etc.
    Give the eat less exercise more crap a rest! We all know diet and exercise aid in weight loss.
    You’re not a rocket scientist for pointing that out.

    For the record, they do not speak for all men.

  12. Maddi says:

    Haha, bravo, Jessikanesis.

  13. bellacoker says:

    Antimoniqua: What in that post led you to diagnose it as sardonic? Thanks!

  14. BHL says:

    Uh, I would guess because Antimoniqua and Dave might be so closely related as to reside in the same body?

  15. wtf says:

    K see, even though I am a girl, and I say women are just dumbasses.
    I mean, you’re the one that got fat in the first place.

  16. Voice of Reason says:

    Ahholyshit.

    Okay, what you people are not getting is that this is not about weight. This is about self-esteem, self-image, and insensitivity. My sister is 5’10″ and 120lbs and when she’s depressed because people aren’t being super friendly to her, she still worries about things including her weight.

    dave: You’re just furthering the point.

    mansplainer: Kudos.

    wtf: You are clearly an idiot.

  17. JustAThought says:

    Antimoniqua, I am about 100% sure that if you think Dave is being sardonic, you would not recognize sardonic if it stepped up and said “hey.” A dictionary is not going to help someone as tone deaf as you, either. Stop posting, you’re comments are a waste of space.

  18. Larson says:

    Well said, Jess! Anti, you’re an idiot. Have you met Dave? I think you two would work well together.

    Thanks for the post. It’s a very thought-provoking image, and I clearly understand that it’s not about weight – it’s about worth – self worth.

  19. Jessikanesis says:

    (warning: if this comment looks too long for you, and you think you might get bored, skip it.)

    Voice of Reason: Exactly. Thank you. That is why the graph doesn’t say “Pounds she needs to lose.” It says “Pounds she THINKS she needs to lose.” It doesn’t matter how much she weighs. Whether she weighs 108 lbs or 300 lbs, if she has low self esteem, she’ll put up with crap. Whether she’s 108 lbs or 300 lbs, if she has high self esteem, she won’t.

    Notice that nowhere on Hagy’s graph does it say that this hypothetical woman is fat. It just says that whether or not she thinks she’s fat will affect how much crap she is willing to put up with.

    Is everybody on the same page now, or do I need to go get the freaking dictionary again?

  20. notanymore says:

    I can’t believe people still say stuff like: “You’re the one who got fat in the first place.” Actually, with the huge amount of ignorance in this world I can believe it…

    Anyway, I was going to say that when I was in highschool I weighed 125, I now weigh 185. The ONLY reason I weigh this much is due to a rare illness that f’s with my entire endocrine system. This caused me to gain a lot of weight. I am a vegetarian who runs daily.

    So STFU about us fat girls being lazy! Some of us literally can’t help it.

  21. illuminatiscott says:

    I think this would have been much better as a line graph, wherein [pounds she thinks she has to lose] = 1 * [crap she will put up with from him]

  22. S says:

    Wow, whole lot of hostility in the comments. Can we all just chill out and stop insulting each other? :P

  23. Stumble says:

    Hah…

    I gained 25 pounds after having a baby. My husband told me that I’m fat and disgusting, and that he isn’t attracted to me.

    Did I leave him? Of course not. :(

  24. MsC says:

    I need to lose 185 lbs, but I can’t seem to get him to leave.

  25. B-Gad says:

    Apparently nobody here has learned how to handle an internet troll.

  26. hahaha says:

    Jessikanesis = hero

  27. A Passerby says:

    B-Gad got it right. So much arguing over silly comments. Kudos to the graph though, it’s very true.

  28. Mith says:

    I’m w Dave!
