Someone said it comes down to preference and what others find attractive and that is true. But just because I don't find someone attractive that doesn't mean I have the right to be rude, mean or whatever. The fact of the matter is there are people in this world who can eat whatever they want and not gain much. Others eat like a normal person and they gain weight. I myself used to have to starve myself when I was younger.... yo yo diets. Up and down. Now I am older and I really don't care what the rest of the world thinks of me. In part because the meds I am on wont let me lose even when I diet... so why suffer I say. What makes things worse is that people who are overweight tend to discriminate against each other. I tell people I can always lose a few pounds... but stupid is forever!
I think you meant to say that those that insulted you are "simple minded". Otherwise, you're actually agreeing with my suggestion. Also, anybody who has somehow sourced your beauty as a basis for an insult needs to skydive onto an iron gate.
