I frequently use humour to ease discomfort of others regarding my disability and weight. I do not have a problem with people joking about my disabilities. HOWEVER, I am the first to bark when I feel someone is being cruel. The other day, a woman commented on another woman being ‘skinny’. In a crowded room she said ‘Look at her!’ She’s so SKINNY!!!’ I could tell that this very shy and reserved woman was uncomfortable so I responded ‘That wasn’t very nice. That is the same thing as being called fat.’ To which the ignoramus replied ‘Oh, but I would LOVE to be that skinny…but only with bigger boobs.’ Some people aren’t intentionally mean…just ignorant of other people’s feelings.
