              That's because you have social problems. Other people don't judge the content of other peoples mind based on often ironic T-Shirt slogans.

                So I'm supposed to feel comfortable with that kind of sweatshirt? Maybe the basic newcomer is not aware of the reference and the fact that it is a parody shirt.

                The guy is French, in France the brand is not famous at all, so it is most likely that beginners won't get it should they see it.

                Yes. You will encounter things that will make you uncomfortable and anxious everywhere in the outside world. You need to find copes to deal with it not the other way around. One is learning that people may wear some edgy shirt and it's not a direct attack to you, they may not even notice you or care about you at all. For all you know this guy used to be super skinny and to him it's a motivator.

                I'm a mentally ill retard (aspergers) myself tbh and just reciting some useful stuff about learning other peoples perspectives from the DBT program for borderliners. The taxpayer here payed 300€/day for hundreds of days so I could learn the most basic shit about human communication that comes naturally to normal people. Might as well share.
                I understand two retards arguing like this must look mega retarded to normal people though.

                The fact that he used to be super skinny and still need to wear that shirt to cope with his memories of him being skinny seems to indicate that he's prone to judge every skinny in the gym. Why? Because he rejects his old body, he doesn't want to be related to skinny people, he needs his shirt to distinguish his old version of him (the one he dislikes) and what he is now. That's my interpretation.

                >indicate that he's prone to judge every skinny in the gym
                Now that's you projecting your own thoughts to other people. Other people are not you is the issue. You cannot accurately judge that. Your interpretation are not his actual thoughts and intentions.
                I would wear some edgy shirt like that to remind myself of my worst as a warning to not let myself go like that ever again. Would I care about other people being skinny? No, because I barely notice people from other objects in my environment.
                People have different degrees of empathy. Some don't give a fuck about others, others get too involved into what others think and feel about them. I'm very far on one extreme, you seem somewhat extreme on the other end, because you'd feel anxious over a T-Shirt slogan on some random dude. A mind that looks at other people and only sees criticism of yourself in others is not a healthy mind. There are skinny people out there that don't feel bad or insecure about being that way. Do you think they'd even notice this guy on the street?

                >Now that's you projecting your own thoughts to other people.

                This is not exactly "projecting my own thoughts to other people" because I don't despise skinny people. I despise that aspect of me personally but I'm not judging people by their muscles. My hint is the following : people who go to the gym did start with the same mindset as me, despising their body (either skinny or fat). For those who managed to get rid of their old body and became muscular, there's an important risk: still not being confident despite being muscular. Why? Because maybe lifting doesn't solve the roots of the problem. It may have just shifted it, changed the way the problem is expressed: people are muscular but still insecure because they fear becoming skinny again, so they reject and disdain skinny newcomers (or fat, depending on the case, but I'm skinny so I'm talking about that)

                >You cannot accurately judge that.

                That's the problem. I can accurately judge the mindset of a friend of mine with whom I would go to the gym. I cannot accurately judge the mindset of someone I don't know. Maybe he's gonna be nice. Maybe not. However, the "maybe not" risk is still present. And I assess it quite high. Would I go in place where I think the risk of being mocked is high, especially if it is a domain 1) I value a lot 2) I'm rubbish at?

                >I would wear some edgy shirt like that to remind myself of my worst as a warning to not let myself go like that ever again.

                Yes, but is it sane? I don't think so?

                >Would I care about other people being skinny? No, because I barely notice people from other objects in my environment.

                I've never learned how to work like that, and I assume there's a nuance between your mindset (= I don't give a fuck at all) and mine (= I care about everything). Usually people don't care, except if someone unusual happens (for instance, if someone stumbles in the street) or if they see someone with a peculiar profile.

                Another way to say it: if you are really comfortable with skinny people and your own past as a skinny dude, you shouldn't need help to such an extent that you need to wear that shirt.

                Me too anon. But that's why we do it. I also know that I look better than I used to (proven by photos) and hell, a bit of discomfort is necessary sometimes. That's why IST's fit is actually useful - if your progress sucks, your diet sucks, your routine sucks, then people here are mean enough to tell you that instead of hugboxing you like other websites full of NGMIs gaslighting each other that they're doing fine.

              Do you walk into gyms and see a lot of people you think you should bother? Why are you even looking at anyone? When I go to lift the people around me are a blur, they may as well be cardboard cutouts.

      If I'm planning to go to the gym, that's also because I'm against the fact of staying skinny. However, exhibiting yourself with such a sweatshirt is quite peculiar. I'm like "what are his intentions? what does he really think?"
