Really?

Dear Women of the World,

If your culture embraces “curves” in women as beautiful, that’s great.  However, if you run into an old friend (who is American), please do not tell her “You’re fat!  You’ve gained weight!”  Even if you then proceed to tell her that she looks wonderful and that she needed to gain weight, she will not receive it well.  American culture, whether good or bad, does not generally view weight gain as a good thing.  If you say such things as these, your friend will probably be very upset and not want to show her face in public for a while.

Sincerely,

A “fat” American
