What in the hell is this?

Have we gone insane?

Why are we ACCEPTING the fact that being fat is GOOD for you?

Are you freaking kidding me?

Now listen, I understand some people are just build larger than others. And that is fine, nothing wrong with that,

But when I see these piles of blubber walking around who CLEARLY could do better for their own bodies then complain that they are discriminated aganist?

I see at supermarkets giant fat people riding around scooters, cart stuffed full of baked goods, fat people frozen snacks, tons of soda, and chips and dip and then they complain they " Oh Im only fat because of Genetics! "

You know what I say? Top off your cake-hole fatty.

Should be be accommodating these people who get to 500+lbs becaues they overeat and are not active?

I don't actually exercise on purpose, but I eat whatever the hell I want and as much as I want whenever I want, because I play on the local Rugby and Soccer team, and in the fall I play on the local farm football team, I'm always out being active.

How does someone get to be 500 pounds? Holy crap.

Yeah, giant fat people should have to buy two seats.


And I think this idea of telling kids and teens is OK to be out of shape and fat is insane.

We should be pushing the idea of eating decent, and being active. Not saying " Oh Jimmy! Your are 12 years old and 300 pounds! But god loves you! Its ok to be a giant pile of blubber! Have fun dying early! And never getting a girl ! "

I think its sick that these people think that would be ok.

Promote healthiness, not fatness.

Agreed. The fat acceptance movement is the opposite of what society should be doing. You should have to pay for two seats if you take up two seats, unless you have proof of a legitimate medical condition that's out of your control.

I can see they don't do well with donations, their site is an atrocity.

Exactly.

We should shame them, and then those that have psychological conditions that cause them to"eat their stress" can continue to get fatter. :|

We shouldn't shame them, but we also shouldn't pretend being overweight is healthy and normal and "out of their control". What's wrong with being blunt and saying "if you don't change yourself, you will die early"?

That is the problem with these pro fat people.

If someone is fat, whatever.

But to say it is " out of their control " and " you wont die! You can be healthy at any weight " is completely insane.

Because a flat out rule of that doesn't take into consideration those who do have issues that are outside of their control?

And that's why I don't think you should care. You take care of yourself and I'll take care of myself.
Heres the thing, when these people have kids, they teach these kids being very obese is healthy and ok.

That is NOT ok to give kids that mindset.

And why do I care? We can't have people dying from being fat in this country, we're supposed to be better than that.

What is good about dying at 44 years old of a stroke with a big mac in your hand and being buried in a coffin the size of a hot tub?

Nothing, at all. Its nothing big a disgrace.

So you get to decide what reality or the real world is?

Got it.:rolleyes:
Ok!

So calling out people riding around scooters at wal mart with a cart stuffed full of soda, frozen fatty foods, burgers, milkshakes, and fried chicken who then say " its genetics! ".

Is unreasonable?

----------

Funny, people were much thinner 30 years ago and there weren't nearly as many gyms around as there are today. Gyms are like starbucks in my town, one of each corner.
Well 30 years ago, people tended to go outside more and play sports and go hiking and be active.

Now they just laze around all day like sentient potatoes.

Obviously it doesn't apply to people who have a legitimate condition where it's out of their control. But somehow, miraculously, as the years go by the more of these people there are. Take any obese person today who claims it's genetic, if you had a time machine and went back to the 1800's, I guarantee you their ancestors would be a normal weight.

Lets be honest

SOME people actually have real problems.

The vast majority of fattys just never stop eating and never move.

Sounds like that is very much in their control.

Its called stop eating 10,000 calories a day and pick up a baseball and a bat.

And 30 years ago society was more active overall. Sedentary lifestyle.

Um

Overeating it outside of someones control?

it's " not out of my control! wahhh! "

Its called " close up your cake hole fatty and stop eating so much "
Yep, all overweight people just eat too much.

Heres the thing, when these people have kids, they teach these kids being very obese is healthy and ok.

That is NOT ok to give kids that mindset.

You're not talking about overweight people, but obese people.

Exactly. because their ancestors didn't sit around playing angry birds scarfing down big mac wal mart freedom food every day.

This is a good thing. There are not saying it's good to be fat. They are trying to tell people like the OP to accept them. Don't tell them to lose weight or any thing like that. They know. Just let them take care of it. Would it be better to have a fat awareness type a thing that helps people lose wait. Yeah should we has both programs yeah. Just look a things they way I do. If your fat I don't give a sh**. Would I help you lose weight if you wanted to? Yes.

We will never be as fit as people in the 1800's (that being said, we live much longer)

So I take it you have evidence for this?

This what I am talking about.

If someone is overweight, but still active and healthy, I don't see a problem.

The problem I have are these super obese piles of useless blubber blaming everyone but themselves for the condition they are in.

If we're all paying insurance premiums, then some are taking much more than they're giving as a result of their own poor choices, ultimately raising all our premiums. Overweight people should be charged higher premiums.
