Being Called A Pig


Recommended Posts

When faced with vague statements that you're not sure are insults or jokes, it's usually best to just leave it until something more is made of it. Or if they're friends or family you can just ask on the spot (without being too confrontational) 'what do you mean by that?' just for a friendly clarification. It can be easy to assume the worst only to find out they weren't talking about you or only meant it as a friendly joke. I hope all is okay anyway.

It means the person who they are saying this about does not live up to their personal standards of what an acceptable weight, personal hygiene or eating practices should be. Put simply it means nothing because the person is an insensitive a****** if they would say something like that to someone else. Personally I think that anyone who would judge and call someone else a pig or any other kind of animal are pigs themselves. Their opinion means nothing.

Kids can be insensitive but on a different scale to adults. They may simply not realise how rude they're being. You could try telling them directly that they shouldn't be like that. Or inform their parents (depending on whether you know them or not). Or simply ignore it.
