Behind preferences there are likes.
Of course we like them a little bit less (unless you have self-esteem issues yourself, or are perhaps fat yourself, or envious of your friend, and them gaining weight actually is convenient for you); the natural response is to like that friend a little less (even if it’s just a smidgeon, or barely negligible amount) if they put on weight. Most won’t be conscious of this of course, and if they are won’t admit it to themselves or dress it up in something, because society quickly teaches us to feel like BAD BAD BAD! boys and girls for our most basic psychological responses. So quickly that if you give that question to any 10 year old they’ll immediately say no, even if it’s not the truth.
Absolutely. Behind my rhetoric there is not some kind of fat hating or belief that all–or even the majority of–fat people are dumb, lazy fucks. I’m just telling it like it is, bruh.
This is a statement about the relationship between expectations and happiness. Not sure what it has to do with this conversation, my asian friend.
