If you are under 12 yet reading this, you probably don’t even have to read the whole thing to know the best response when being told you are fat, because one phrase would do the trick for you: Jo kehta hai wohi hota hai. But if you’re a grow-up and tired of hitting the gym, dealing with all that fat and yet keeping a straight face, you certainly need to learn a lot more. Because yes, you know you have all that body fat and you do not need to be told so! Throws us all off guard sometimes, doesn’t it? We wish people would understand that, but how do you make those desi aunties and college bullies shut up anyway?

Here’s How to Get Back at Them
Turn it into a Compliment
Now do not take this into literal terms and begin to think how being fat can be a compliment. The thing is, if somebody is actually wailaa enough to take out some time to acknowledge you about your body weight, either they really want to be you or have some major complexes of their own. So if you think of it that way, their fixation with your body is quiet satisfying and super hilarious.
Own Your Body
No matter how chubby or skinny you are, your body belongs to you and nobody has the right to make you feel ashamed of it. You own it and therefore you must learn to love it. So the next time someone calls you fat, tell them you love being just the way you are and that you are proud of yourself. That ought to shut them up.
Give a Light-Toned Threat
So how about the next time someone tells you about your body fat, let them know that your chubby knuckles can give the best punches and a purple eye? Or maybe, tell them you ate the last person who told you that you were fat. Burrrp!
Analyze your Body Yourself First
So are you really as fat as they say you are? Most of the times, people would body shame others just to drain down their self-esteem. A lot of us are just good in health and are ashamed of their bodies. There’s a lot of difference between ‘having fat’ and ‘being fat’. Look at yourself and decide for yourself, are you really what they tell you? Maybe not. So the next time they do that, why not just tell them so?
Turn the Shame-Game Around
While this may not work for every person out there trying to be a meanie, it might work on the others and maybe those aunties too whom you just cannot shut up with humor or otherwise. Ask these people why they feel like the urge to tell you about your body weight and just nicely tell them that isn’t a nice thing to say to anyone. Tell them, yes you are aware that your weight needs a bit of managing, but who else is perfect, aunty jee? Pakistani women and South Asian women in general were born for curvy body structures, not the stick-figures everyone keeps chasing. So if the person has a heart, they would actually feel ashamed and might apologize to you sooner or later. If not, they would just find another release for their own insecurities.
