Would that make them feel better? Is that what life is all about, making people feel better no matter what they are like or doing?
What ever happened to reality. Remember those days when a FAT person was FAT. It was not some politically correct wording. People were adults and adults could handle the truth. Today everyone is so worried about offending others that they have created a society of children who cry when someone says something they do not like.
WELL GROW UP ! If you are FAT then you are FAT deal with it or lose weight.
You are so correct on this. I am also appalled by the people who were trying to get McDonalds shut down because McDonalds made them fat. NO ! THEY made themselves FAT. Not, McDonalds !
As long as you are healthy. It shouldn't. Others opinion shouldn't matter anyway.. As long as we are happy of who we are. Nothing else should.
Sort of, I mean you're overweight if it's negatively impacting your health. I don't think anything else should really be considered overweight though. The BMI scale is wholly inaccurate and outdated, for example.
It's not a stupid question, the world is entirely based in perception but that's the way I view it.
Overweight is a pretty simple concept everyone has a body mass index you rise above it you're considered overweight. BUT that's only a guideline and indeed there are many overweight people out there that are considered perfectly healthy despite that. So If I think it should exist then yes because there's a fair bit of evidence out there that suggest a trend linking excess weight with many kinds of health problems. What I have a problem with is when it leads to people having self-image problems instead of looking at whether they're actually healthy in general
It will exist no matter what. If you're overweight, you're overweight. I'm technically overweight. Whatever. I should eat less. That's just life. I'm not gonna go cry in a corner about it. I'm gonna take responsibility for my body and my health. Everyone should.
Great question.It's strange how the overweight are still discriminated against even though their numbers are growing My boss(who was overweight)wouldn't hire a chubby girl to work the front desk since she "didn't project the right image"Nice double standard.
Of course it should exist....the human body is a very complex machine and works most efficiently when weight is "normal". Too much body fat effects many of our systems and causes a lot of health issues. ""Overweight is often used as a superficial cosmetic term, but it's really about overall health and quality of life.
It usually doesn't after 12 beers.
Sorry had to get that one in.
Yes..I think "Ideally" if we lived in a Perfect World Everyone would be healthy..but thats not going to happen.
Nope, the concept makes a lot of sense and is fine. I think the discrimination of overweight people shouldn't exist. To and From!
Sorry, can't abide a hater. The fat person who grumpily demands deference for their shape, or the intolerant person who judges them for being that shape. Both in my opinion need an attitude adjustment. We are all God's children. Haters are the real evil, not people of certain size, color, gender, religion or sexual preference. I'm sorry you seem to be so angry.
"You are just trying to find an excuse for fat lazy americans !" <-- you posted this, among other things, correct? Please explain how such statements are devoid of hate and anger.
yes...I am just undertall for my weight...
nothing should exist
