Gloves Off

Please use this post for discussion of those contentious, murky, triggering issues too complex to discuss/moderate on the main post.

Note that this post is NOT a free-for-all and will still be modded for slurs, namecalling, doxxing and trolling. But fair warning that it will not be moderated for discussion of issues some find triggering (trans issues, mental illness, etc.) and that if you choose to participate here, you do so at your own risk.

Because she has tan lines, anon. Everyone knows only white people get tan lines.

Seriously though, he doesn't. Just like he has no clue about her "inactivity". I mean, sure, you can tell she isn't eating 10,000 calories per day and that she isn't a bodybuilder, but beyond that? He's just pulling stuff out of his ass.

I think he got away with it because he was criticizing a thin woman. It took a good long while before people starting pushing back against "thin shaming" on tumblr. It was once considered "punching up" and was pretty acceptable.
