Is this not a large portion?

I got deleted from a Facebook group about stupid things men say for commenting that this was an overly large portion, is it not?

That is a huge portion!

Yes it’s fairly large but absolutely no need to criticise people you don’t know on Facebook. Who knows what else they’ve eaten / how much exercise they’ve done today?

Its huge!!!!

PurpleFlower1983 Sun 22-Nov-20 11:52:46

Yes that’s large.

It wasn’t the portion of anyone on that group, it was shared from another group entirely because a man had told the man who originally posted it that if he cooked spaghetti bolognaise correctly then his date would ‘put out’

It is a large portion, but why comment? There might be a reason for it. And even if there isn’t, why be judgmental?

How did you say it? Doesn’t sound like something you would get banned for unless you said more than “that’s a big portion”

YellowandGreenToBeSeen Sun 22-Nov-20 11:55:35

Very large portion.

BigBlueBow Sun 22-Nov-20 11:56:06

It is but equally I dont really feel the need to comment on someone elses portion size.

Theres many reasons why someone might eat a larger portion. Its not really a stupid thing men say.

Just like some days i might not be very hungry id eat a smaller portion but its not really something to laugh over?

CoronaIsWatching Sun 22-Nov-20 11:57:20

Yes it's large I'd feel like i would explode with all that I wouldn't be able to finish it all especially with the bra=ead

BeingATwatItsABingThing Sun 22-Nov-20 11:57:33

Unless that’s a side plate, that’s a big portion.

I also don’t understand why you were deleted. confused

Feministicon Sun 22-Nov-20 11:57:59

I said ‘That’s a large portion and the man that made the comment is a plank’ Why does anyone feel the need to comment on anything 🤷‍♀️

It depends. DH is currently trying the omad diet and frequently being told on his FB diet private group he doesn't eat enough and is at risk of being deleted from the group. (They all post photos of their meals). Many members eat more than what OP posted as its their only meal of the day.

(But yes it is a large portion!)

So you got deleted for calling someone a plank.

Yes I’d totally get that if it was a group about dieting and if the original poster was even on the group

No! They told me it was because I commented on portion size. If you saw the other comments you’d realise that ‘plank’ would NOT get you deleted 😂

Its still an odd thing to do even more if the portion size is irrelevent.

Yes, I gathered that.

It’s huge...way too much pasta and then bread too!

DominicCummingsBlog Sun 22-Nov-20 12:04:10

Are you the same poster who put this pic up on here a while ago to ask if the portion size looked big? confused

Lucidas Sun 22-Nov-20 12:04:12

Right. Who cares. These groups tend to be misogynistic cesspits anyway.

Weallfloatdownhere Sun 22-Nov-20 12:04:30

Depends how big plate is but I could definitely eat all that, minus the bread.

SimonJT Sun 22-Nov-20 12:04:31

Looks like a standard dinner portion to me
