    I wouldn't say you're really skinny fat; you appear to be just skinny.
    Skinny-fat is mainly a female thing.
    why would it be mainly a "female thing"? not like just women can be skinny and flabby at the same time..

    Men can be skinny and flabby too, but it's just mainly women because of their lack of muscle. I've known size 8 women that have been mainly fat; their skin sagged slightly (flat ass) and they were just really 'squidgy' to touch.
    When you get a skinny male, he's still likely to have more muscle than his female counterpart just because he has testosterone. I'm not trying to be impolite here.

    Women naturally have less muscle and a higher percentage of body fat than men. If a woman was 'skinny-fat' then she would have to lack a sufficient amount of muscle as well as having a high body fat percentage compared to someone of her own gender, not compared to men.

    For example, a man who is 12-13 stone and 11% body fat has a lot more muscle and lower body fat percentage than a woman who is 8-9 stone and 19% body fat, but you can bet a woman with those stats does not look 'skinny-fat', in fact she will look highly athletic much like her male counterpart above.

    The 'skinny-fat' phenomena is equally prevalent in men and women who have poor diet and lifestyle.

    Whilst I agree with what you say about relativity and how in theory it should be equal, but I don't think it is in reality. I may be wrong and maybe it's because I haven't seen enough skinny-fat men, or they just appear differently in clothes, but I imagine that a higher male interest in sports and the gym would have affected this.

    Yes, I agree with the last part. Men tend to cover up more than women. And the fact that women are more likely to be found in the cardio section and practicing 1200 calorie diets doesn't help...all they are doing is burning fat AND muscle.

    Some women are afraid of weight training as they believe it will make them 'big' and 'bulky'. They are also often frightened to EAT more, believing they will almost certainly get fat unless they hop on the treadmill for 2 hours every day.

    Fortunately though, in this day and age more women are learning this is not the case; that you will not turn into the 'she hulk' from lifting weights and that you will not blow up like the michelin man if you eat over 2000 calories a day because weight training in itself is an intense workout that burns calories not only during a session but afterwards as well as the insulting increasing in BMR that comes with any muscle gains over time.
