The phrase ‘If you lost weight, you’d be a stunner’ has been deemed NOT a compliment by a panel of experts.
The phrase is often proffered by over-confident men as a way of attempted seduction.
Panel expert Jody Strongthighs told Grumpy Fuckers:
“As women, we often hear this phrase and it’s often dished out by men who are either too short, too hairy, too bald or just stink of piss. Their belief is that they are offering some kind of constructive criticism but that’s not how it’s being received. Men think that the woman has to do all the hard work of losing weight to assuage the man’s desire to look at someone smaller. But we got a few of our experts around and we’ve decided that this is not the compliment that some men think it is.”
One woman said:
“One guy said this to me last night. I told him that if he was taller, had more hair on his head and less on his back, and if that he didn’t stink of piss, I might consider talking to him. He left shortly afterwards.”
