As a person who has been trying to overcome body image issues, I do not appreciate your comments about my body type. I, personally, have been battling myself on a daily basis since I was at the tender age of 9. Although over the years I've lost 50 pounds, I've battled multiple eating disorders, falling in and out of them regularly, I've killed myself for hours upon hours at the gym to a point where my loved ones were worried for my health. I've hated myself for years, and I've been trying to love myself and love my body and appreciate every single inch of it. I've been healthy, or at least trying to be healthy, telling people close to me to make sure I'm eating and to help me stay healthy, for the past 2 years.
I've been coming along perfectly fine, until someone like you comes along and tells me I'm "butch", calling me a "monster" even as a joke. "Diesel", "little man", etc. I know I'm not feminine looking. I know I'm not tiny. I know I'm not skinny. But I don't appreciate you punching my hip bone and telling me that I "shouldn't feel it because I have more meat on my bones than another coworker." Not only are you pointing out my flaws but you're picking on another one of our gorgeous coworkers on her body image, that you in fact have no clue that she hates her body just as much as I hate mine. You don't know this but you do it anyways.
You need to learn that people have feelings and that what you say to people about how they look WILL stay with them forever. I'll never forget words you've called me, just as every other man or woman you've done the same to won't forget them either.
I've dealt with this all my life and I've been called worse than you've called me, but I most certainly do not need to hear those same words at my workplace that I've heard all of middle school.
This is to everyone battling body image issues. You are absolutely stunning. Please. Never let anyone tell you that you are beneath anyone. You are gorgeous and you don't need to change a thing about yourself. Please, take care of your body and make sure it stays healthy. You only get one of them, treat it right, just like I'm trying to, and just love yourself.
