Ask Bill & Dave

How to handle guys picking on your size


 
 
Bill: I could say how the guys should get sensitivity training but, fact is, your school sounds like a microcosm of our society. The media run ads for high-calorie goodies, often featuring near-skeleton models. My advice? Mental blinders. Blinders are the flaps they used to put on racehorses’ eyes to keep them looking ahead so they don’t freak out at distractions in their peripheral vision. You can’t change these guys’ attitudes, but you can take their power away by focusing on positive things. These losers might treat you and your friends like dirt now, but they’ll end up eating your dust.
 
Dave: Right on—ignore them! The only reason for such hateful behavior is to get a reaction. Don’t even give them that satisfaction. Once they figure out you’re self-confident, it will suck the fun right out of their teasing.
