I am in my second semester at a community college. I'm 25 years old and not a day goes by when I don't think about all of the torment I've had to endure even getting to where I am. Every day when I was over the age of 12 I was bullied. Mainly because I was/am overweight. The misconception about people who are overweight is that we eat all the time and eat fast food. I do not hardly ever eat and I never eat fast food. In junior high the girls would call me fat a**, shamu, marshmallow, and chubby. I dreaded going to school every day. Because of those bullies and the awfule things they said I skipped school a alot. To this day I can barely do elementary math. I have this feeling that everyone talks about me all the time. I am do not like to talk to people that I do not know. I have even tried to commit suicide twice. Being overweight is no laughing matter.
Instead of making fun of people who are overweight, why don't you try to be friendly to them. Ask if they would like a friend, make them laugh. We can all change the outcome of bullying.
