Elsewhere recently Poundstone was called fat because he was "not ripped", and the discussion basically boiled down to this...if you're not ripped, you're fat. A picture similar to the one attached was presented, and the brohs called it fat.



Believe it or not a good portion of the modern demographic thinks we're all lardbuckets. No exaggeration. Under 10% or fat, you are, Jedi warrior.
Yeah, I saw that stream of utter nonsense. Truth is, most of the bros would never call Poundstone fat to his face and they'd nut-hug him in person. And then they'd go home feeling SMALL.

Anyone who can look at an image like that of Pounstone or someone similar and consider the person fat obviously knows very little about muscle at all; traps, abs, delts...all very visible and developed...they just show how ignorant they really are...what is the saying..."An empty vessel makes the most noise".

Somewhere down the line, people started modifying the English language, and began using big and fat interchangeably

I think, I'd have to agree with that...curvy also falling in to the same category...basically, anything that isn't stick thin has to be fat by default.

Exactly. I think people with opinions so blatantly devoid of any reason really shouldn't air them in public. It's embarrassing.

That's a direct quote from an email I was sent this morning. Certainly not a maintainable standard for 99% of humanity.

With that attitude 140 pound men without abs are now fat. We now have the brahs calling guys without abs fat, and skinny guys without abs are now feeling pressure to lose more weight because that's all they know to do.

I have nothing other to say than this is shortsided and idiotic.
