    I feel pressure for being a bit bigger rather than thinner now that Kim Kardashian is trendy, but don't really care.

    Tbh i've never been seen as "fat' . But my friends which are larger than the average girl have definitely told me about the pressures of weight loss for them.

    Nope, I've never really felt any pressure. I've always been a consistently 'average' to slim weight so people didn't really comment about me being fat or thin. I would like to lose weight but that's due to my preference on how I like my body to look as opposed to what someone else thinks

    Why? Poussey is the dead one! Taystee and the rest of the black squad are so freakin' loyal man. They won't give up until they get justice for their girl poussey! Bless em. Mate... I cried when flaritza got seperated. Real tears. I'm really interested to see what's going to happen from there. Will they be taken to other prisons? Who knows?

    Probably because I didn't really remember much from season 4 so kind of forgot what Poussey went through but the way SoSo was depressed and crying and stuff just made me feel super sorry for her.
    Nah you didn't actually cry did you? I was proper sad but I couldn't get tears out lmao.
    It just makes me sad there wont be a Litchfield anymore...

    Oh yeah that's true... she's proper depressed n all.

    Lol then it wasn't THAT emotional for you as it was for me. The music at the background was quite sad and it suited the scene so perfectly. Sad songs + sad scene = tears.
    yh that's hella depressing man. don't think I can rlly continue if it's not in that prison. I'm way too attached to that one and there's probs gonna be new characters! damn.

    Sure I feel the pressure to be thin -- but it's appealing and it feels good to be lighter. Idk it makes you feel more mobile.

    Girl you don't need to be getting no skinnier.
    Well, if you are significantly overweight, you should really be trying to do something about it.

    I think that they do, but I hear a lot of girls saying 'I don't/do feel pressured by guys to be skinnier'...
    We all freaking now that in the majority of cases we don't feel pressured because of men...We feel pressured because of other girls.
    In most cases what a girl would consider 'fat' a guy would not, and I think most girls know this, guys are probably around the skinner girls because in most cases it's not because they're skinny, it's because they're louder and more confident, but they're probably not as a attracted to her as another girl who's quieter and more curvy, however that girl will just be wanting to be like the skinny girl and blame it on the physical differences between them and not the personality side...

    I'm using a playground example because when we leave school I don't really feel like that should even be a real question haha. Who cares? Surely everyone realises once they've left school that no one really cares and everyones just trying to get on with their own lives, and those that do are you friends so you should feel comfortable around them and not pressured. I feel that once you're out of that school environment, most people just try to be happy and healthy and stop thinking of stupid questions like that.

    But, yes I do think that they feel pressured to be skinnier, but not because of guys, maybe for guys but not because of them in most cases, in most cases I think girls aspire to be like other girls because they admire them for whatever reason and have low self esteem, and like I said, they mainly focus on the physical differences between themselves and the women they would like to be like.
