Talking about people’s weight/appearance

Share
Posted: 13 years ago
All right, ladies and gentlemen.  I keep seeing this all over India-Forums and from time to time I have reprimanded people for talking about about people's weight.  Now, I want to put it forth to you.

Is it ok to talk about actors/actresses' weight?  Is it ok to say that someone is ugly? 

I have been a member of India-Forums for almost two years now.  The reasons India-Forums doesn't allow discussions about actor/actresses' weight or their looks is because what if an actor/actress were to visit India-Forums and they see that we are just slandering them.  They won't want to come back and neither will they encourage other actors and actresses to come visit us.  We wouldn't have Raam Kapoor here.

I also feel that when we are discussing shows, we should not talk about how ugly or fat an actor is because it bears no relevance to the show.  There are so many times that I visit a section and there is discussion about who is hotter which is all good and dandy, but 10 discussions about the same thing is annoying. 

Finally, I feel that if I saw a post saying, "jprasad is so fat," it means that we are just focusing on someone's looks rather than their talent.  For those who suffer from low self esteem they will feel that looks are everything and their future doesn't rely on their talent rather their looks.

What your thoughts?  Is it ok to talk about actors and actresses's weight and the way they look on India-Forums?

well saidClap

its true some members only focus on looks, all actors and actress are beautiful and handsome in there own way. For some people SRK might be ugly and for others he might be cute, don't get me wrong as I am a big SRK fan. When a director looks for someone to act in a show she/he looks for both talent and looks. If u vist some forum like kaisa Ye Pyar Hai and Saat Phere then u get to see the negativity members have against actors and actress looks.

sry if I have said anything rudeSmile

i disagree w/u here!

If ur talking about fat/ugly guys on big screen n we not watching them then think back to old, golden days!..when every single actor/actress were fat! Such as Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Dharmendra, Nutan, Nargis, Asha Parekh, Rishi Kapoor, n the list goes on and on!

I think fatness never mattered in today's generation either...if it did, then Madhavan wouldn't have been appreciated in RDB.

I think its how u act that matters, not ur weight.Smile

so r u sayin that if ur fat, ur also ugly?

and these days, ppl are on a labellin spree, anyone who looks normal is "fat". does get annoying

ok, what would most people prefer?

this skinny chik who knows zilch about acting, and is at the same time sendin the wrong msg to today's youth OR a relatively chubby person, with damn good acting skills?

and anyways, some people CANNOT reduce their weight. why is that so hard to understand? some people just cant! it's genetic!!

and if the public spoke up on these issues, it'd be for the good of society. what happnd in the Madrid fashion show is the first step towards normalcy.

Who says it's all about looks?? Society? But...WE make up society!! so we have to change these superficial notions!

Good Point! if it were all about that, then we would have missed out on such great talent...OMG imagine it...how bad would SHOLAY have been if all the actors were too "fat" to act?!!?LOL
