Wow, I've never started a thread anywhere near a fraction as long as this. I'm feeling kind of overwhelmed.

It's a thread that foments varying degrees of disdain --- these are all the rage on public forums.

Everyone likes a place to bitch.

I'm probably going to sound a lot more sassy and aggressive than I intend to in this post, so I apologize in advance. I'm writing this after a very long, rather disappointing day.

With that said, I'm confused as to how me saying "people don't do squats often" has gotten translated into "fat people". There's plenty of people, of all shapes and sizes, who don't do squats. Short people, skinny people, politicians, etc.

Based on my observations, leggings are universally flattering to the curves of any size leg, but p. much universally unflattering to the butts and crotches of anyone who isn't in the professional ballet industry. And if we're so far gone in society that "anyone who isn't a ballerina" is now considered "fat", I don't know what to think.

If I wanted to make overweight people a special target, I could just bloody well say "HAY FAT PPL" and deal with the consequences thereof, and if I wanted people deliberately misinterpreting what I say just to make my views easier to attack, I'd go back to tumblr.

You are still saying that people should not wear leggings unless their bodies look a certain way. The purpose of shapewear is to look thinner. I can see how people mistook your meaning.

Unpopular opinion: As long as people are not breaking any public indecency laws, what they choose to wear falls squarely into the category of nobody else's damn business.

See this is what really bugs me about this thread. Everyone is entitled to have opinions like, "I think X is unflattering" or "I don't like Y". But this thread is full of statements like "people should not wear X as pants" and "Y should go die in a fire" implying that one's own opinion should be imposed on the world. It's really obnoxious. But it's my own fault for reading the stupid thread.

Declarative statements and opinions are different things that often get confused. Like when I was a kid and I packed my plate full of sliced beets because they looked like sliced cranberry sauce.The flavor of disappoint.

I HATE blue Christmas nights. Especially houses that have all blue lights. I don't think it looks pretty. In fact it's downright eerie.

I'm also not a fan of flashing lights.

We have a house near ours like that, my mom calls it the Nightmare Before CHristmas house because it is very eerie.

I'm boring - I prefer clear lights. Maybe multi colored.
Maybe.

I agree, blue Xmas lights look cold and creepy to me. Mom just uses clear/white lights outside and clear and red/green indoors (at her bf's house she always covers the bannister, and it's a big one, in garland and lights. So much for the handrail...)
Also, I hate those big inflatable lawn ornaments. Can you say TACKY?
