There is also a really big double standard. I was chatting with a girl at the Jeger bar about this very thing. She was on about how there was a lot of fat dudes who really shouldn't be bearing it all for Satan. And I couldn't agree more. I empathized and mentioned several women too wearing what can only be described as child's clothing with it all flabbing out. Oh my how her opinion changed immediately on this note. She even called me a misoginist and I have to admit I had to go away and google what it meant.
Suffice to say, I just walked off at that point. I think from her perspective, the excuse is it's OK unless you're a dude.
But really, I was a big old lad a few years ago. Well into that danger zone BMI. Now that I'm pretty damn far into that normal zone, there is no excuse in my experience. At all.
