A stranger fat-shamed me while I was grocery shopping

The man who fat-shamed me at a grocery store in Irvine, California, bounced into the store, wearing his too-short shorts and a tank top that revealed his contoured abs. At a glance, he appeared as the epitome of a California stereotype: a health nut and yoga enthusiast, perfectly poised, with his nose a little too high in the air.

I don't fit in that stereotype. I am a plus-sized woman who spent the majority of my life in the Midwest. When I moved to California to start my life over as an adult, I was shocked by the options for Botox and contouring surgeries, the focus on organic foods, and the attentiveness toward fitness.

And yet, no person I met in California has ever treated me as less than or looked down upon me — at least not until this man showed his face in the grocery store.

I remember lighting up when I saw this man and greeting him with a huge smile. Honestly, he looked like some of the men I've dated — men who were delighted with my plus-sized body, many of whom declared a preference for someone shaped like me.

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I greeted him. But I wasn't expecting him to say, "You don't need those," as I walked by holding my only grocery item — a package of bakery cookies.

It took me a minute to register what he said because I was so shocked. When the message registered, I looked back in horror — only to find him cocking his neck, intently staring back at me with a huge smirk. His piercing glance declared pride in having disseminated such a judgment.

I held it together long enough to walk across the parking lot to my car — a distance I purposely kept to get extra steps in. I asked a stranger to take a photo of me because I wanted to remember the moment when I became fearful, when I no longer felt safe to walk around as myself, and when California's humanity showed its face as the mean and vile place many people expect.

It was October 9th, 2020, at 3:28 p.m. — precisely three years, three months, and three days after I moved to California.

From the article:

[quote] One such person told me that LA is "the heart chakra of the US"

If you'll excuse me, I'll be laughing my ass off for the rest of the day. LA (including Orange County) has many things going for it, but it also lives up to a lot of its stereotypes. Making genuine connections with new people, rather than transactional ones, can be really tough. It is also every bit as vanity-driven as this story would imply. Frankly, I'm surprised the author made it three years, three months, and three days without encountering a random, fat-shaming asshole much sooner than she did.

First she slams him - too revealing shorts "bouncing" into the store, perfectly poised with his nose a little to high in the air. She's implying that he may be gay - then she said he looks a lot like men she used to date who appreciate curves.

Bitch is DELUSIONAL. Guys who look like that are not jostling and pushing each other over to get to her obese blob of a body.

Also - she lives in Irvine in ORANGE COUNTY. Look the fuck around you. You ARE too fat and you do NOT need those cookies. He may have been a doctor or work in the medical field. A box (BOX mind you) of bakery cookies is not needed.

Just like she added in all these things about how he entered the store, now she adds in all of these items (craning his neck, smirking) that probably didn't happen either.

You cannot smooth every sharp edge towards a journey of losing or maintaining weight, it is a fallacy to do so.

I have routinely gone into a store and bought only cookies because I brown bag my lunch and would never buy them for home, so I can relate. There is one checkout girl that’s autistic, that always comments about my purchase. I actually think twice about the purchase because of her.

Fat people don't like being fat and they don't get fat on purpose. If anything, fat people have low self esteem and they don't know how to treat themselves and their bodies well.

I've never been in that exact situation but when someone in a grocery store made a rude remark to me, I ripped him a new one in front of his kid and told him he was an embarrassment as a parent because he set such a poor example. I don't remember the particulars of the comment, but it was about being old and not moving quickly enough with my cart.

When people attempt to bully someone they perceive as weaker or less able, they don't anticipate a humiliating response. Deal with the situation then and there and then never think of it again, unless there's a DL post about something similar.

In the same way, some men prefer curves - which means bigger breasts and ass, but still a defined waist. Now all obese women say they're curvy - but you can't see a single curve on them.

She missed an opportunity. All it would take is for her to respond " can you tell what food choices would be better?". If the guy is a jerk he'll just blow her off. If he's genuinely wanting to help her he will have a conversation with her about those better choices and perhaps show her where to find them in the grocery store.

Why can't the scenario be that a fat person tries to buy some Entenmann's, a Good Samaritan notices and advises the fat person that it is inappropriate for them and the fat person puts in back?

What you all might be missing is why this tank topped, ripped abbed, short shorted, FIT, healthy dude might have perceived as she sashayed toward him with lustful eyes and bright wide smile.

It's the same look the good-looking, hot guys in the gym or at the bar on on the dance floor get over and over and over as creepy, old dudes wink at them, or fat, sweaty blobs think they have the right to cruise way, WAY out of their league and expect the beautiful men to be nice, to be engaging, to be humble and say, how sweet of you to notice. Get real. These guys get hit on all the time because they spend a great amount of time, energy and ambition looking that way. But that doesn't give anyone the right to just pop into their space fawn all over them.

He saw her coming with just that attitude she describes as "I've had guys like that before who DIG my look" so YOU will too. He might have been so tired of that bold, clueless approach and simply put her in her place immediately albeit a bit rudely. The sly smile back wasn't necessary but his way of saying, Stay in your own Lane, gurl.
