Rachel Wiley – “10 Honest Thoughts on Being Loved by a Skinny Boy”


10 honest thoughts on being loved by a skinny
boy 1
I say, ‘I am fat.’ He says ‘No, you are beautiful.’
I wonder why I cannot be both. He kisses me
hard. 2
My college theater professor once told me that despite my talent,
I would never be cast as a romantic lead. We put on shows that involve flying children
and singing animals, but apparently no one
has enough willing suspension of disbelief buy anyone loving a fat girl. 3
On the mornings I do not feel pretty, while he is still asleep,
I sit on the floor and check the pockets of his skinny jeans for motive,
for a punchline, for other girlsphone numbers. 4
When we hold hands in public, I wonder if he notices the stares —
like he is handling a parade balloon down a crowded sidewalk;
I wonder if he notices that my hands are made of rope. 5
Dear Cosmo: Fuck you. I will not take your sex tips
on how to please a man that you do not think my body will ever be worthy of. 6
He tells me he loves me with the lights on. 7
I can cup his hip bones in the palm of my hand,
feel his ribs without pressing very hard at all.
Sip wine from his collarbones. He does not believe me when I tell him he
is beautiful. Sometimes I fear the day he does is the day
he leaves. 8
The cute hipster girl at the coffee shop assumes we’re just friends
and flirts across the counter. I spend the next two weeks
replacing my face with hers in all of our photographs. When I finally admit this,
we spend the whole night taking new pictures. He will not let me delete a single one. 9
The phrase “Big girls need love too” can go die in a fire.
Fucking me does not require an asterisk. Loving me is not a fetish.
Finding me beautiful is not a novelty. I am not a novelty. 10
I say, ‘I am fat.’ He says, ‘No. You are so much more’,
and he kisses me hard.

  1. I would say be happy that you found someone that loves you, because you obviously don't love yourself. 
    Look what you've done to your body. You are dying and you're gonna have a world full of miserable health problems on the way.
    Anyone that tells you that your body is perfect the way it is, is lying to you. No one wants you to be skinny, but you should strive to be healthy, and being obese is not only unhealthy, but it's going to kill you.

  2. Lose some weight. It's not healthy. Medical science is very clear on the myriad of issues and diseases associated with obesity. People like healthy people and find them more attractive because they're probably going to be around longer and they can grow old with them instead of suffering through fat-related illnesses in your 60's and dying by 70.

  3. Why the hell is she complaining? Someone loves for who you are…especially if your found unattractive by most men…thats bad? The white middle aged american woman are the most privileged human beings on the planet, she is LUCKY to find someone.

  4. Go on a diet and hit the treadmill. Stop lying to yourself and do something about it, you're dying, its unhealthy.

  5. Lmao do people not understand being fat is bad. I can tell this woman doesn't and neither does her bf. Its damn disgusting Tbh. She is eating herself out of existence. Maybe she should go on a diet and she won't get those looks.

  6. Your ten thoughts may be honest… But they are also dumb. Saying something with an indignant tone and gravitas doesn't make it profound.

    Owning your fatness … Shouldn't mean owning denial.

  7. I've been an overweight man most of my life and women have almost always rejected me. Even ones who are overweight themselves. 4 years ago I lost over 100 pounds in 7 months and everything changed. Everyone treated me better including other straight men. Carl Jung says thinking is difficult which is why people judge, so I understand your pain believe me. People didnt only reject me but they put me down hard too. Kids told me I should kill myself and people constantly attributed any mistakes I made to being "fat" even when most of them had nothing to do with diet or exercise. I lived almost my entire life in doors before a few years ago because I didnt want to hear people call me names. The fact that people treat me different now makes me resent them even more even though people seem to want me around. Hopefully I'll find love with a woman I trust to not be shallow but I find that I can't trust anyone. Everyone seems fake in someway or another especially pretty people. If you're out there and you think it's funny to put someone down and try and make them cry because you're with your boys. Just imagine this dude started boxing, jiu jitsu, and muay thai, and then lost over a hundred pounds in 7 months and in doing so at such a pace became incredibly agile for his size. Like 5 punches per second agile with shins that could shatter your femur. It's been 4 years later and that guy has become pretty proficient with mma and after sparring with K1 fighters could probably beat the fuck out of you while he made your families watch. Man that would be terrible. Or maybe you just don't say anything. Maybe that person has severe depression and has lost hope because they're sad, body dismorphia, a glandular problem, or some other disorder you can't see. Or, maybe they just like to eat and if they get big thats their business. This being mean shit has to stop. People constantly tell me how funny and good of a person I am and whether I am or not doesn't matter because I was this way before I lost weight and you still thought I should just end my life. Sorry for ranting so long but I know there's people who've come to this page to do nothing but leave mean comments so I feel like you should be warned because I'm still out here and one of you sorry ass punks might wander into my gym just to get dealt with.

  8. You gotta watch the Gavin McInnes take on this. Perfect. Crazy this was 5 years ago and still nothing has changed

  9. Every single point she brings up in this video is untrue, stupid or just plain wrong. Go ahead and pick any number and I'll tell you why she is wrong

  10. I’m seeing this guy and I keep thinking “what’s the catch?”
    He never makes me feel weird about my body. I’ve had guys make fun of it and I’ve had guys fetishize it. And he doesn’t do either. Just tells me I’m beautiful and is a complete gentleman. Maybe he will turn out to be a good guy. I’m always scared he could leave me for someone smaller and more curvy. I need to get over those fears.

  11. Sounds like she found a good man, and is hellbent on pushing him away. It's odd that all of these fat acceptance women seem to always date a "skinny boy." You see it in society quite often. Wonder why the overwhelming majority don't date fat men?? You actually rarely see amongst young people, fat guys dating "skinny girls." Imagine a fat guy telling his friend "man I said I'm a fat ass while rubbing my gut, and this beautiful, thin girl said that I was beautiful, and so much more, & kissed me hard!" 😂 Why don't these fat acceptance women put their money where their mouth is & stop dating "skinny boys" since they think fat is so beautiful?

  12. It’s okay to be skinny/fit, ladies. Don’t let a sad and lonely plumper dictate how one should “feel” based upon some dork drilling her out of pity.

  13. What is she complaining about? She should be thankful anyone especially someone “skinny” would even consider dating her. Most of what she says is her own paranoia and blaming that on her husband.

  14. I wonder why she is bragging about a skinny guy. Is this objectification? I know women emotionally objectify men more then physically but why even put that in there when her message is such as it is? No self awareness. Down voted.

  15. Canklesauruses- Ohhh STFU
    Go cry on the shoulder of a child dying with leukemia.
    Or consider, one of your snack binges could feed a starving family for a day or two.
    Pampered Westernized Fatties living in the lands of plenty… just GFYselves!!
    😭😭😢😢😭😭😭

  16. Damn I shouldn't of quit drinking. Apparently if I was a homeless alcoholic nowadays i'd be beautiful and inspiring.

    Hurry up with the time machines Elon I wanna go back.

  17. это что за животное жирное? пиздец, она у меня и на 2 монитора не поместилась
    fat, fat, fat,fat… fucking fat… new HERO `FATonder women`… fat powerrrrr

  18. It scares me to read the comments on this. Button poetry is not a place for hate. Why make these cruel jokes and comments about people? It does not make anyone feel good. So many people are already hurting and to see these awful things being said about wonderful people is disgusting.

  19. Rachel Wiley is the only fat acceptance activist that deserves respect and love because she is not bitter or rude like the other ones.

  20. If this ham planet spent half the time on diet and exercise that she does caving in stages shaming fat shamers and being an angry miserable sow…she'd only be as fat as Ricki Lake…ten years ago.

  21. How emotionally damaged would a man have to be to even consider dating a woman like this. I honestly feel bad for him.

  22. It's all bcoz, Body shaming 😑, but sometimes i think i love my crush but at the same time i think I'm not deserve for him so i give up like all the time 😊,it's really hurt's ND i hate my self ,position etc etc… But it's OK I'm more stronger than my problems so i give up him again like all the time ,.. Sorry if any spelling mistakes or sentence.. I don't know English very well but i love poetry so I try.

  23. As a person who works in medicine I can assure you of one fact no matter what people want to believe about obesity, you will die young, believe me when I tell you this…A person of this size will NOT live past 55 years old, will NOT, this is not my opinion it is science, the science of obesity…You can be a beautiful person for sure, but being a beautiful person doesn't mean healthy not in any way shape or form…Personally I don't care what a person weighs or how they look at themselves, I'm just stating fact and that fact is you're dying a slow death like it or not…So if you enjoy eating, drinking to excess or whatever, continue on but remember you most likely will not see 60 years of age and the road that brings you to that point will be a rough one…

  24. I was fine until the literal last line. Now in crying and I have to walk by my parents so that they don't see me

  25. When I heard

    “He tells me he loves me with the lights on”

    I had to throw my headphones off I bursted out into tears. So powerful.

  26. oh god, that whale is lucky to have anyone even look at her and still, like most women, she can't be satisfied. What a doormat of a human being her boyfriend must be, what lack of self respect to date a steaming pile of shit.

  27. He only wishes that I hop on the treadmill so I don’t die of heart disease at a far too early age.

  28.

  29. I wonder how could she replace her photos with the normal girl…even with photoshop she would have to stretch it hard…and the other girl would look very strange!!! Well, i hope she loses some weight for her health sake.

  30. Being that horribly obese is not "beautiful" to a normal human being… because it's very unhealthy. Her heart has to work harder, her joints wear quicker, and soon she won't even be able to get around a grocery store without a fatty cart (originally meant for old people (lol)). She is literally killing herself.
    Something which is both highly abnormal and harmful is called a mental illness by the majority of psychologists. Her boyfriend is mentally ill, she has shit genetics, and I hope to god that they never attempt to have children, that is, if he could even find her vagina through all that blubber.

  31. All these libtards commending this obese woman for her "bravery" lmao you're all so pathetic. Not everyone is beautiful, nor everyone perfect the way they are. Wake up, stop making excuses. No one cares you're "suffering" or "depressed." Jeez. Hard work always pays off, try it sometime.

  32. Gavin McInnes submitted a great review on this exact video, I highly recommend it to anyone who actually thought this video was inspiring or whatever. It's more of a comedy than poetry.

  33. I'm sorry but this is horrible. You have a fat woman projecting her insecurities and anger on a relationship with a skinny man (probably because, like most fat women, think they deserve a 6' tall model) and basically shaming anyone who doesn't look like her, isn't attracted to her, or doesn't see the "beauty" in a first-world woman crying about first-world problems that are almost definitely self inflicted. Sure 400,000 people die waiting on social security every year, Tribal Genocide and Child Sex Trafficking exist…but no; let's try to make sure every Walmart has a fleet of industrial "Courtesy Scooters" that seriously disabled people will rarely get to use.

    I use to weigh 320lbs, now I tend to hover between 190-210. Why? I stopped eating 4-person lasagnas for lunch. When a girl tells me they love guys with curly hair or other attributes I have I don't immediately go "I'm just a fetish/object to you!", because everyone has their type/kinks and to shame them for actually being into what you have to offer is fucking ridiculous.

  34. Shut the fuck up!
    I’m fat. Do you know why I’m fat – because I eat too much and I don’t burn off the calories. It’s unhealthy and it fucking sucks.
    If it’s a problem having a skinny boyfriend, dump him and get a fat boyfriend. I’m guessing you won’t, tho, because you’re not attracted to fat men. Either way, stop blaming everyone else for your problems and your insecurities. Especially your poor boyfriend.

  35. Rachel…
    1. Fuck you.
    2. You go die in a fire. (Not really)
    3. You're normalizing morbid obesity.
    4. You're actually bitching about someone loving you?
    5. The way you speak is SO much worse than the fact you probably won't make it to see 50.
    6. Fat is not beautiful, it's sad to watch people chosing a slow death over health.
    7. BUTTON POETRY. Your supporting this idiot basically makes you murderers, good job.

  36. Is this some kind of joke, or is this actually unironic…? Serious question here. I can't believe this at all.

  37. She’s upset that someone is willing to love her? This is proof positive that fat women know they’re unattractive to most men. Thank you for proving everyone’s point, you fucking ingrate!

  38. I cried so much watching this 😭 this expresses so well how I feel at times with my man who is thinner than me especially because when we met I was simply just curvy and now since I lost my job I've gained some weight and haven't felt as confident but despite all of that he still loves me
