    So I'm somewhat skinny. Like I can wrap my hands around my bicep without flexing and I can touch my middle finger with my thumb. I'm 16 male and I've always been fairly skinny. I'm pretty sure it's just one of those everyone develops differently kind of things. But it's summer and I really want to wear tanktops. See, when I put them on my body actually seems in proportion and I personally think it looks okay. But I'm thinking of just ignoring what others may think and just going for it. Also I am going to the gym but I really need to start going more often.

    Do you agree?

    I understand where you are coming from. I'm 17 and I am also the biggest eater in my family, but I am also the skinniest. I took up martial arts and went to the gym to help with this, and I have seen gradual improvements. I would suggest taking up a martial art because not only will it help you with building up muscle, it can also improve stamina.

    Thanks a lot. What are your views on me wearing tank tops? I have nice ones but I'm just nervous to wear them!

    I wear tank tops, and I don't care what people say. I think that if anybody tries to tease you about it, just laugh at them. I sometimes walk around bare-chested. Last time I was teased about that, I told them to take their top off, and I had a better looking six-pack than them!

    Food will not always improve body weight. I have evidence. Read my earlier post.

    Being skinny is no bad thing. I am skinny and I like it and I own it.

    Touch your middle finger with your thumb? Can't everyone with a hand do that?

    All you skinny people showing off I'm 85kg. Supposedly at 6ft 2 that's acceptable but I still feel fat and have no muscle on my arms.

    I don't give a **** about my build. Personalities are more important than builds.

    People think I am skinny but I am actually fat. I can't do endurance because of my medical condition so I mainly do weights instead. I get pressurised against doing it because my parents think that it will stunt my growth, and that's bad if you're 17 and only 5'5
    I hate genetics. Feels like the biggest damn source of inequality in the developed world. Then there's a girl in my school who is in poverty but gets bursary and benefits. I actually feel envious of her.
