tell it to the wind, no one cares, I have plenty of compassion and truly humane emotions towards the people I deem deserving. Some fat b*tches throwing a hissy fit about what their waiter said, and event that occurred on the completely opposite side of the country, managed to make it to my ears because those idiotic girls had nothing better to do; unequivocally shows the problem with out country, and if you want to go hold their hands, then by all means, send them money, or food. Stop wasting our times and calling us monsters. They need to grow a pair and show a little intestinal fortitude, don't cry everytime some one insults you.

The attitudes about the overweight in this thread are disgusting. I wonder how cruel some of you are to people with other disadvantages. Of course you're only cruel behind their backs, right?

Screw all that. If I'm a business owner I wouldn't want some smart mouthed opinionated moron working for me insulting the customers which threatens the business and my lively hood.
Take that back to the pubescent school yards where it belongs....
I love it how so many self proclaimed supposedly "Enlightened/intellectual people" come crawling out of the woodwork and show their true nature.
But we are talking about Fat people.....!
So it's ok

I have yet to figure out why this offends people...
my ex was big, and my take on being overwight is
if someone calling you fat offends you, then change it..
otherwise accept the fact that you are overweight
and be happy in life.
The one that made her the maddest at me before she
accepted her self as she was, was one day
she came to me and asked me..
"Do these pants make me look fat?"
now most guys would avoid this question at all cost,
but my response was simple and honest...
I replied. "I dont know, when you take your pants off
and stand in front of a mirror do you look fat?".
The other one she tried to pull on me was just after we
got serious, and she told me "I'm just big boned"...
to which my response was..
"Wow, you have bones in your A## cheeks?"
I think people in general need to accept and come to terms
with their bodies, either they like what they see and are happy
or its time to change it, that way things like this wont offend
The truth should never offend, if it dose then there are bigger issues.
Well if this upset them, then maybe it will spur them into action to do something about their weight, which they obviously feel upset about. And you know what if it saves them from a heart attack or early death, I would have done the same myself.

Is it wrong to try and get people to turn their lives around? These women were offended, so they knew it held a certain truth. They might go on to lose the weight and live a healthy lifestyle now.
Should we sit and let these people eat themselves into an early grave? By thr way you veiw the world, we obviously should. Disgraceful.

As someone else has stated already, unless you have a medical condition, there is no excuse for obesity. It shows laziness. And laziness is a trait passed on to the younger generation. Its why we hear about childhood obesity so much. And they're saying now, that despite advances in modern medicine, for the first time the younger generation is NOT expected to outlive their parents. Why? Obesity!
If my remarks come across as insensitive, tough s---.
