17 Problems All Naturally Skinny People Will Understand

Yes, everyone, I eat.

1. Being told that you need to eat something.

2. Being told that it isn't fair that you're so skinny.

I literally have no control over this.

3. Being told that you look like you have an eating disorder.


Not funny.

4. Being told that you look like a bag of bones.


Again, not funny.

5. Being told that being skinny is unattractive.


So is being MEAN.

6. People telling you that they can see your ribs.

And what would you like me to do about that, exactly?

7. When you arrive somewhere and most of the food is gone because the people there "didn't think you would eat much."



8. When you can't fit into adult clothing so you resort to shopping in the kids' your twenties.

9. When people ask you why you are working out.

10. Not being able to gain weight no matter what you do.

11. People constantly asking if you're OK because they are worried about your appearance.

12. People joking that you'll blow away in the wind.

13. People comparing you to a twig.

14. People grabbing your wrists to emphasize how small they are.

I know, I see them every day.

15. People suggesting that you aren't allowed to have insecurities about your appearance because you're skinny.

BBC / Via

If only that was how it worked.

16. People wanting to watch you eat, just to "make sure."

NBC / Via

I promise you that I eat, literally all the time.

17. And people insisting on picking you up only to comment on how light you are.
