I Love Fatties! My woman is over 250 lbs. I don't care that she's big, I just worry about her health.

BBW's ( Big Beautiful Women) have FA's - Fat Admirers. Fat is Sexy, cushiony, comfortable, lovely, shapely, soft, hugable, squeezable. I call my woman Squishy, that's her pet name. And the sex.. well, once you go fat you never go back.

Look at all the fat paintings of the Renaissance period. From the 14th to 17 centuries it was considered if a woman had some meat on her bones she was healthy. That's why you see so many famous paintings of big women.

I say it's o.k. to be big as long as you are healthy and maintain your health. When the fat starts to hurt your health, then you need to lose weight. But new research shows most of the time it's not the fat you can see around your bones, arms legs etc that's detrimental to health, it's the inner fat such as stomach fat that you don't see that causes the damage.

Exactly. Whats the big deal about calling someone fat? Ah, poor little thing got his feelings hurt...ahwwww


All the more reason to cut down on your food intake and get some excercise.

People tell me I smoke too much and they are correct. Should I cry about it?


No one is perfect. People make choices and they live with them. At least the majority....

I have even been accused of things I have never done and no amount of explaining will help.

Life is tough because we make it so!

This is my point of view, when I was 16 I found out I had sleep apnea... and I was not fat. I have what they call mixed apnea, because its a mix of the kind where your body doesn't tell itself to breathe, and the kind fat people get.

Because of my sleep apnea, I am tired almost all of the time. Because of this, I have gained a few extra pounds over the years, (when I don't work out heavily.) Being tired all the time makes it hard to stay motivated.
I am not obese, but I am out of shape.

When I tell people I have sleep apnea, they say "well just lose some weight and it will go away."... no, it won't.
On top of that, greif over this last year has disrupted my hormones making it nearly impossible to lose, despite a healthy diet and excersize.

And I know we are mostly talking about severly obese people here, but whether its one extra pounds or 100 no one deserves to be singled out by strangers or classmates or coworkers about their weight unless it is done for constructive critisism.

Any other reason is just to be an a-hole and while I don't believe it to be a hate crime, it does make the person doing it a terrible human being.

It's Orwellian, but we can't stop it. Blame the information age. Blame information technology. But you can't stop it anymore than you can stop people from getting up in the morning.

It's just the way it's. Pretty soon machines in airports will measure people's emotions. Not long after we'll control some of our devices with our thoughts. They'll examine the brain to check for lies.

Once they can accurately put a check on thoughts they -will- prosecute. It's just like the american west but before mass transit and airplanes and the electric grid. Sorry, but this is just the way it goes. We're all coming closer together as a result of this technology and societal development. This closeness is forcing us to up the anty and be more vigilant about battening down the hatches.

More responsibilities and closeness = higher expectations for orderly behavior.

Basically, it's like everybody is in one room and .... we have to be careful about what we do.

'hate crimes' in general are a violation of rights. thinking or saying things shouldn't be a crime at all, and violent acts should be crimes per say unless they're justified by self defense, etc. adding an extra year to the sentence cause you killed a guy over race? violation of rights. the punishment should be for murdering a human being. adding an extra year for x thought is criminalizing x thought, and is the same as criminalizing words or thoughts.

Where the hell are these fascist PC Nazis for bone thin folks such as yours truly?
Seriously, I could hide behind a broomstick.

Or taxation without representation.

Or indefinite detention without a cause.

Guilty till proven innocent.


Those are all American concepts, we are talking about the UK our constitution does not mean anything over there.

Yep - I'm told that I am about 100 pounds over weight. Right now I'm at 290. Name calling like "fatty" and "tub-o" and telling me that I'm "obese" is nothing but name calling and should be banned as hate speech. While they're at it, they should ban other words for hate speech too - like moron, idiot, skinny, ugly, dumb-ass, maggot, hypocrite, slow witted, ginger, blue-hair, emo, mutant, slime-ball, Nazi, commie, shrimp, woosie, bastard, bitch and bigot. (insert sarcastic indicator here)
Is there a course these people could take to cure them of their over-sensitivity?

Can we also look forward to being prosecuted for calling someone fat even if they are?


Should someone be prosecuted for calling someon a racist name.. There is no difference....

I got a better solution. People that get super offended by words either have to wear sound canceling headphones while in public or have to sign a waiver stating that they realize that there is such thing as freedom of speech, that they are just an oversensitive fatty and that they will never blame any of their actions of the words of others.
But I don't think this should stop with just fat people. People that get offended or do that thing where they act like they are way more offended than they possibly could be by any spoken or written word. I have seen first hand people tell black jokes and then latter act offended when they see someone else do it while they are in public.
It should be tied to your drivers license, after you get your drivers license you have to sit in a room with other people taking the test and some guy reads off a list of slurs and insults. If you rage or pretend to get offended you have to put on the headphones or sign the waiver. And anyone who fails the test gets their internet taken away. I have just seen too much crap being blamed on "cyber bullying" these days. You would swear that kids calling each other gay online is the same exact thing as an old fashioned jim crow lynch mob.
We as a society need to pull the tampon out and beat that inner child into submission, we have much more important things to fix before we worry about fatty mcfatterson and his hurt feelings.
One thing that struck me as odd is that we as a society have done a pretty good job at vilifying fat people like they are some horrible blight on the planet. We have things so mixed up now, its like fat people are the new smokers like they all need help and are just dying for someone to come in and give them health advice. Some fat people are fat because they want to be or don't care just like some smokers smoke because they want to. Meanwhile looking like you are anorexic is supposed to be hot and having an autistic kid is the new coach purse.

There is a real social stigma in the UK to being fat.. Do you think it is correct that people should be discriminated against and made feel bad because of their weight. Because we live in a society where is deemed sexy to walk around like a stick insect. As I said in my previous post discriminating against people because of their weight is no different from discriminating against colour. You might as well be sticking up for a bunch of KKK..

I am sure you aware that words have power and can be hurt full.. If you dont. You still have a lot of growing to do. We are all aware that we should have freedom of speech. You see that video thats been on ATS recently of that kid that killed herself because she was being bullied mostly with words I might add. What would your advice be to her.. Put some headphones on...

No, but I also think people should not crap their pants. With that said I don't think we should have people that crap their pants thrown in jail.

No there is a huge difference. The KKK killed and lynched people, calling someone fat does not mean that you are going out to kill and lynch them. If you cannot see the difference between the KKK and calling someone fat then I am amazed that you can use the internet and live a normal life without having a full blow seizure or nervous melt down every day.
Freedom is important to me and many others. If you have the right to stuff 5 hamburgers down your throat with a chocolate shake I have the right to say someone is fat. Im not saying it is the right thing to do but I have the right just like I have the right to crap my pants if I choose.

I need to grow up?lol: What was that old saying CHILDREN have? Something like "sticks and stones may break my bones..." Words only have as much power as you give them, if they really are that strong to you it only means you have a weak mind.

That is a great appeal to emotion however there is a whole thread on that girl and there was a bit more to it than just words. Like child porn staring her being distributed and her getting the crap beaten out of her at school, more to it than words. Try again

I'm sorry mate... but... not even in the renaissance you have a picture of a 250lb+ woman. Thats not "fatty", "fatty" is someone like... jessica simpson, who I personally think is gorgeous. Shes not 250+.

250 plus is not healthy and not "fatty" its... well its HUGE. For all our european friends thats around 113+ kgs... wow.

Fatty sure, they're usually hotter and with those curves in the right place, they're the most gorgeous women out there... over that, my driver's license doesnt cover tow-trucks - same goes to women over 6' like cranes. Either way I'm not allowed to operate heavy machinery.
