Is it worse to make fun of a woman's weight than a man's weight?
Either seems mean and always inappropriate, and I don't see how one could be worse than the other. It does seem like there should be an exception that encourages everyone to make fun of every little thing about people who make fun of others first.
No. Just don't do it. It's cruel and unnecessary. You have no idea how one negative comment could affect them or why they're not what you perceive to be the ideal weight.
It is, but it shouldn't be. I know a bunch of overweight men that take criticism about their weight very, very personally. I also know some very vocal women who are proud of their "curves" and couldn't care less what anyone says.
I don't know about worse but it is a darned sight more dangerous ;)
Never underestimate the scorn of a woman pi$$ed off about a weight comment. :-))
Yes. Oh no, I have a double standard!!
Glad you acknowledge it :-)
See how offended a man gets when you tell him he has tits versus a woman when you tell her she has balls.
Its hurtful either way. There is nothing funny about it.
It's equally deplorable
It is worse in that it probably has a bigger impact.
Society makes women feel like they must be physically near perfect, whereas guys can certainly have other redeeming qualities and it not be as big of a deal.
You never hear it said about a funny, unattractive woman "well she is still so funny"
So true about redeeming qualities!
Probably the woman's weight
Now, if it's her weight vs his length and he's not packing, then it can easily be 50/50 if not worse in his case
It is equally bad to make fun of anyone for their weight. However, women are more likely to feel the impact of such a comment because they tend to face more criticism about appearance from men, other women, and themselves.
A woman's worth is more often tied to her appearance than a man's worth is tied to his appearance.
Perfect response. A+ for you.
Hey you expressed my thoughts much better than I could.
No, no difference. Making fun of someone is making fun of someone no matter the gender or the issue.
It shouldn't be. But I think our society, in general, tends to judge women based on appearance, including weight, more than it does men, so it *seems* worse somehow.
I'm speaking strictly on a moral standpoint; this is not about the average male's perception of how the average female would react. Do you think it is more morally wrong to make fun of a woman's weight than a man's?
I think a man takes it better then a woman.. Just speaking from experience, but neither is not a good idea
Dood? This is an easy answer.
How are any of these answers "easy"? Why is it not 100% "yes" or "no", then? Explain yerself.
Have you ever criticize a woman's weight? Much worse.
Much worse morally or much worse as in their reaction is usually much worse? There is a difference, and my question is asking about the former not the latter.
I have never criticized anyone's weight, male or female.
That's smart..don't. I haven't really either, maybe just insinuated it, and got slammed. Most men don't really care. I'm more of your thinking now.. Live and learn.
My apologies if you took my answer wrong.
Not technically but women generally have worse self-conscious issues.
It's the same both are not nice.
Yeah even if they're not overweight and you say whatever when they ask you. It turns bad real fast.
I'm talking morally.
Oops my bad sorry broski!
all good jakeski
