well, people do make fun of fat people and tell them they have problems quite often, so that's clearly not true. also, some people genuinely are too thin, to the point that they look gross and they are hurting their health. it's kind of assumed that fat people know that they are fat, but that people who are too thin (if they are genuinely anorexic or have some other eating disorder) might not realize that they are too thin, so friends who wouldn't point out a fat person's weight issues might comment on a thin friends perceived weight issues. saying someone looks too thin can be an expression of genuine concern or just a body type preference, not necessarily jealousy.
I think you've got it right there. Your friends tend to do it out of concern for your best interests. What I get really damn angry about is complete strangers or your ex's parents trying to tell you you've got some sort of eating disorder. That's frankly just really spiteful, and if you did actually have one, people like that telling you wouldn't be overly helpful!
For the record those comments being made to me are a complete and utter joke. I'm built thin and because my weight dropped to something ridiculous when my parents got divorced, I still get monitored by my doctor every so many months anyway (although, I believe, this stops this June -woo!
Anyway, she's the medical expert, and she says I'm perfectly healthy, so I think I'll take her opinion, thank you very much.
/overly frustrated rant.
Anyway, Angelina Jolie is lovely, Brad Pitt is just boring. Next!
