I'm not skinny, I'm 5' 6" 150lbs. But when I go to my wife's family gatherings where everyone is way overweight and obese I'm heckled for being skinny. They think it's about looking good, they don't get that I want to be an athlete. I mean, you can't even talk about exercise without someone getting defensive and turning it into a joke or making a derogatory comment.

My brother is 5' 10" and 140. He climbs 5.13+ and he's a chess National Master. Now THERE'S an athlete.
