    I don't comment on anyone's weight, fat or skinny. It's unnecessary and useless: does nothing to help them or improve their self-esteem. And for those people who think "they don't deserve self-esteem" or "well fat people need a wakeup call!" you're just adding to the problem. Obesity is a complex topic, and people who suffer from it need education and support, not belittlement. The focus seems to be primarily on weight-loss in this society as opposed to health. So before you scold a fat person for being fat: he already knows, dude.

    I wonder why in so many situations in life, humans so overwhelmingly prefer to blame individuals and ignore the environmental factors that contributed.

    We lock people up (at exorbitant cost to taxpayers) and in some cases kill people for crimes committed, and pay little or no attention to things like poverty, education, role models, mental health treatment, and access to life opportunities that all may have helped prevent the crimes in the first place.

    We talk about how evil someone must have been to shoot a bunch of kids, but make no attempt to change gun laws, improve mental health access, or prevent people from feeling alienated and hostile to society.

    We complain about how lazy the poor are, but fail to appreciate the challenges they have to face daily that we don't, which suck up a lot of energy that might otherwise go towards "self-improvement", as well as the lack of hope of improvement (often realism rather than cynicism) which tends to be pretty demotivating - why bust your ass studying and working extra long hours and saving every penny if you think you'll always be poor regardless?

    We mock people for being fat and pay little attention to improving infrastructure to promote activity, educating kids about healthy lifestyles, or actually making a healthy lifestyle accessible to someone in a poverty situation (both financially and time-wise).

    Maybe we're afraid to admit that maybe we would go down some of those roads ourselves, if we'd led a different life.

    Because taking on a system, rather than an individual, is a more daunting task.

    Consumption is a prerequisite for Capitalism.
    Therefore, obese humans are good Capitalists.

    At one time, humans who could not hunt their own food, travel to find it, or spend long hours laboring to grow it didn't eat. Now, doing any of that is difficult if not impossible or otherwise restricted.

    Most of you humans and human societies are not rational enough to handle conveniences and technology. The result is perversions in many forms, from new ways of dehumanizing each other to killing each other, or killing yourself.

    Well it's why we have the NT overlords to look after the moronic masses. Social darwnisim will reign supreme.

    Second of all what I say is that most fat people who think they are beautiful are kidding themselves. That's all.

    You are a disgrace to the name 'Pimpin.' That name should be stripped from you immediately.

    If you had any honor you would strip it from yourself.

    Here, allow me to direct you to the name change thread.

    I guess it makes sense though, if you must eat more, you damage the earth more.

    my roommate who has weight issues and tries really hard to lose Weight is down about her weight and turns out it's been a struggle her whole life. I've never said one word about her weight to her anyone else, because it's not my place but I did say "I still like you" the point is there's more to a person than their size and you really shouldn't concern or make assumptions about others

    fat people often times are just naturally fatter than most.

    I'm wierd in the fact that if I don't work out or expend my bottled up stress, I become destructive. So working out is very much a requirement in my life for my own success and my own sanity. Unfortunately many people do not have these motivators and allow themselves to succumb to sedentation, and don't always have a good reason to leave this lifestyle either.
