Calling someone fat is the epitome of 'no class'.
Making laws against such is facsist, but those that deem it necessary to point the (fat) fact out are no less than ignormases.
Not for nothing, but -- If you just sit back and watch someone with a problem and don't say anything about it you're of less class than that of the
person who points out what's wrong.
If you want to be fat by choice, it's your choice, but don't expect people to not point out the inconvenience of you being fat.
Ever sat on an airplane with a fat person next to you? Yeah, they are in YOUR SEAT. If you got the window seat, you ain't getting up until you
arrive because there is no way out.
Being FAT is inconvenient. This is why Airports charge fat people now for 2 seats. Oh, but -- people like you would call that discrimination,
instead of what it really is, consideration for the person that otherwise would have bought that seat.
There is a difference in being overweight and FAT, FAT is obese, and last I checked, Obese was NEVER cool with anybody but other OBESE people. And
why is that? Because they find comfort in other obese people, because they are both lazy and don't give a damn about what's going on with their
I've met people who said "My doc said I had a thyroid problem" and I've said to them very clearly, no you don't, and then I've taken them under my
wing as a personal trainer of sorts, and sure enough -- they got skinny, what do you know.
It's all about the mindset. I believe very RARELY there can be people who have medical conditions that make them large, just like very rarely people
grow to 10 feet tall. The average case of obesity is caused by junk food and lack of will power and the comfort of addiction.
It's no different than a smoker who can't quit, or a meth addict who can't shake it. They sit there and say, I don't want to do this, but find
themselves doing it anyway, and eventually -- they give up trying to quit and say something silly like "I've decided that I'm a smoker, and I always
will be" even though they tried to quit on their own, and the only reason they are saying that is because they didn't have the will power to quit.
Fat people are the same way, they get tired of being called fat it hurts their "feelings." Well guess what, your feelings should be fine with it if
you choose to be fat. The reality is, if you're fat, you're fat.
This is like saying you shouldn't call a junkie a junkie. Anybody who doesn't, is of a lower class, not the other way around.
