Re: Is saying a girl is "too thin" as bad as "too fat"?
it is more of a cultural thing. i'm sure in those countries where being fat is seen as being wealthy being called too thin is probably a bigger insult. in our culture being fat usually means you are seen as being lazy, greedy, unhealthy, and most unfortunately ugly. conversely too thin might mean you are poor or sick. being sick isn't seen as that bad since everyone gets sick from time to time, and there are ways to counteract the poor image such as buying expensive clothing and accessories. so thinness isn't really as bad in our culture.
