    21 Things You Should Never Say To A Skinny Girl

    No, I'm not sick. Even if I was, you're still rude.

    1. "Your legs/arms/body parts" are like twigs!"

    Google / Via

    They have less sap and are also made of flesh, not wood.

    2. "I could break you in half!"

    NBC / Via

    Please don't please don't please don't.

    3. "Eat a cheeseburger."

    Warner Bros. Television / Via

    I will eat what I want to eat.

    4. If you're eating a salad: "You need to eat more than that." / Via

    Don't tell me what to do.

    5. "You could wear anything."


    Alas, I only wear some things.

    6. "Real women have curves."

    E! / Via

    You've figured me out. I am a cyborg.

    7. "You have no ass."

    Cartoon Network / Via

    I am a donkey-less woman. I lament this fact every day.

    8. "You have chicken legs."

    Dreamworks / Via

    Bwak bwak b-kawk!

    9. "You look anorexic."

    Fox / Via

    That's a disease and not a description.

    10. "You're so bony."

    Touchstone / Via

    My body is ready for the skeleton war.

    11. "Men like girls with a little meat on them."

    NBC / Via

    Men also like spaghetti with butter and not making their bed.

    12. "I could lift you up with one hand."

    Nickelodeon / Via

    Do not, please.

    13. "Being that skinny isn't realistic."


    I am a real person with real people feelings.

    14. "You can't possibly eat that."

    Warner Bros. Television / Via

    Watch me eat. Then watch me Nae-Nae.

    15. "You don't need to work out."

    London Alley Entertainment / Via

    You're right, being skinny means I'm already the healthiest I can possibly ever be, ever.

    16. "This wind is going to blow you over."

    Disney / Via

    Even a sapling can withstand the storm if it is a person and not a tree.

    17. "You hipbones stick out so much."

    MTV / Via

    Why are you even looking at those?

    18. "You don't know what it's like to struggle with weight."

    Bravo / Via

    My personal struggle is not yours to describe.

    19. "Your metabolism isn't going to last forever, you know."

    Bravo / Via

    You really like talking about my guts, don't you?

    20. "Your body is so boyish."


    I'M NOT A BOY.

    21. And of course, "how come you're so skinny?"

    NBC Universal Television / Via

    I don't know. I genuinely do not know.
