Ask Amy: These women are tough with strangers, and I can't be silent anymore

Ask Amy: These women are tough with strangers, and I can’t be silent anymore

Dear Amy: I recently went out with a couple of “gal friends” who openly and loudly mocked people who are noticeably overweight/obese.

With so many family members battling weight issues, it really impresses me.

In the first place, I was so surprised that I could not reply; In the second case, I spoke briefly about eating disorders.

My friend Marilyn didn’t understand. Her pride point: “If I were, I’d lock myself up in a room until I lost weight. That’s all a guy has to do.”

Please suggest how I can respond in the future. I will never sit back and listen to rude comments and lack of understanding again.
