Fat and skinny people

Published: December 28, 2010

KARACHI: This is with reference to your article in your Sunday magazine titled “10 things I hate about fat people”.

Skinny people are always stressed about eating in public because everyone makes a big deal about how much they eat.

Skinny people don’t like shopping for clothes because nothing looks nice on them.

Skinny people aren’t always skinny because they don’t eat enough. Sometimes their metabolisms are too fast.

Skinny people are tired of fat people complaining all the time.

I’m skinny and I’ve learned to laugh about it. I crack jokes on myself all the time and so do my friends. I, however, didn’t get whiny about a badly written article making fun of skinny people because I have better things to do than get offended every time anyone says the word ‘skinny’.
