Fatguy Shirts: Cool or Not?

As the name suggests, Fatguy Shirts are mostly aimed at men, but some of these designs (and there are many) clearly have women in mind. On the one hand, I'm all for embracing a healthy body image, but most of these tees just seem mean. What do you think? Would you be proud to wear any of these? Do you find them refreshing or irresponsible?

I was undecided until I actually looked at them. I thought MAYBE the idea was a whole love yourself even if you're overweight thing. But sugar is right - those are just nasty.

I once saw a woman who was just.. insanely overweight, wearing a shirt that said "I BEAT ANOREXIA" .. not funny.

besides them being demeaning and tacky, aren't they just another way for overweight people to think that it's ok to be fat? it's like saying that being 50 lbs overweight is ok because the person's not anorexic.

Well, I wouldn't wear any of these, as I'm petite. Besides, I don't wear message t-shirts. They're just not me.

The one that says "winning the fight against anorexia" is just not funny. anorexia is a deadly disease that destroys the lives of people who have it and those around them. A shirt like this only perpetuates the idea that anorexia is a joke or a vanity thing. It isn't; it takes years to recover. Sorry if I come off harsh but I know people who have died from anorexia and it isn't funny.

I like the one that says "Everyone loves a fat girl". I'd wear it around the house only, but I still think it's kitschy and cute. I mean, I'm not obese, but I'm not teensy tiny either. But then, this is my kind of humor. I'm somewhat hard to offend.

I think they're pretty mean, however, I'd have totally rocked the "No, I'm not pregnant" one in the first couple of weeks after having my baby. That would have been much easier than responding to people wondering when I was due while my newborn was in the stroller next to me.

I must get the "no, I'm not pregnant one" because I get asked this too often. Like a girl can't have a belly unless she's expecting?!

The t-shirts' comments seem to be an offensive way to deflect disparaging remarks: "I'll make fun of myself before anyone else does." Not nice.

I love them! I'd totally wear the "Guys love fat girls" shirt! I'm not a fat girl, but I'm not a size 2 either. I don't think it's making fun of women, I think a women who wears a shirt like this has terrific self esteem! If you don't like them, don't wear them!

I wish people would stop using size 0 instead of saying anorexic. Some people are smaller and just because a certain number is unrealistic for one person, doesn't mean anyone who is that size number is too skinny. And also as it's already been said, eating disorders aren't funny and sometimes I feel like people who deal with them or are assumed to have them are vilified.

I'm not liking these one bit, especially the one about anorexia. There's really nothing at all funny about an eating disorder.

Whilst being funny in a crude and cruel humor, they are just degrading, unless you're that confident in being the size you are and loving it, but even then to the...people who aren't your inner circle or your circle of friends and those who you know to an extent could find it rude or again, degrading.

I think they're really inappropriate. What would people say if a really skinny girl was wearing a shirt that said "No, I'm not a skeleton" or something like that? Geez, you have to draw a line somewhere.

I'm sorry, but I would rock the "winning the fight against anorexia" shirt at the gym. I'm not fat, but I've never been a zero either.

They're not actually funny and I especially don't get why someone would want to wear something that says "No, I'm not pregnant.", not that I like any of them.
