And bulemia and anorexia are ALSO morbidly dangerous. I've been told at the doctor's office to DON'T LOSE WEIGHT - I've been told that I looked TOO THIN when I was in a state of clinical depression and COULDn't eat - my family and friends told me I was going to "disappear" if I didn't put on some weight - that they were worried about me.
What is so wrong about being "worried" about the health of extremely fat people? And food intake, refusal, or purging by using laxatives or vomiting are all UNHEALTHY.
You're missing the points of the OP - I said that I disagree with the manner in which the sites reporting ALL used the phrase "too fat" - when clearly the issue is about "pre-existing medical conditions" that NZ has a right to decide they don't want to "take on." Most countries also have requirements about how much MONEY a person has, or whether they have a SKILL or TRADE that the country needs.
And I asked what everyone thought about that word choice. I see the choice worked on YOU, at least, to make an immigration application's health-related issues into "discrimination."
