Being Fat

McD

This should be fun.  I recently read an article about obesity in America and how we as a culture have come to accept it as a norm for people to be fat.  Well I’m here to tell you it is not OK.  I’m not saying you are a bad person.  You may be the most caring person in the world.  You just happen to look like Jabba the fucking hut.  Americans do everything big.  Meal portions are dealt out in sizes XL, XXL, and I plan on having a triple heart bypass tomorrow.  Now, I am guilty of eating to such excess on occasion as are most people.  But lets talk about something real. Healthcare.  Obesity in America significantly affects the costs of healthcare.  Why?  Because Nearly 61% of healthcare costs in America are related to conditions caused by obesity.  So, back to my rant.  If you are fat…..you are gross.  That is my opinion.  There are exceptions to this.  If you are over 55 and happen to be 20-30 pounds overweight….so be it.  You have lived your life and probably give two shits about my opinion.  If you have a LEGITIMATE thyroid issue…I get it.  It’s medical.  If you are a little fluffy, that is different.  If your problem is an addiction to Little Debbie and Dr. Pepper….fuck you.  You are a disgusting shit head.  I have been told I should be ashamed of my unwillingness to accept someone else for their fatassness, guess what, I give exactly ZERO fucks.  It is gross.  If you ride an electric wheel chair in Wal-Mart because your ankles and knees can’t handle the weight of your 16 folds of excess fat you should consider starving yourself for a while.  You can probably last a hot minute.  It is not OK or healthy to be 30 or more pounds over weight.  Some of you are going to think, “oh, this guy thinks he is better than everyone.”  Wrong, I know I have an inner fat kid that LOVES shitty chocolate covered cherries, german chocolate cake, and cheeseburgers.  But the difference is, I understand how this affects me and how my health suffers.  I drink, I smoke cigars, I eat gross shit every now and then.  The thing that sets me and millions of Americans apart is that we do things to balance it out.  For instance….wait for it….EXERCISE!  What a fucking concept. Instead of waiting for 37 minutes to get that primo parking spot at Golden Corral, save time and park in the back 40.  I know of a woman who lost 30 pounds in one year merely by parking as far away from her destination as possible.  She never changed her diet.  Amazing what a little distance can do.  Either way, it is not OK to be obese.  There is a difference between curvy and lumpy.  Just because you can fit in those jeggings does not mean you are any less fat.  I am not being hateful towards fat people, I am just keeping it real.  If you are OK with it, so be it.  But do not try to tell me it is OK.  Medical science has already proven that it is not.

Just a guy with some years on him that calls it like I see it. My opinions my be offensive to some and funny to others. My goal is not to offend but to create asymmetric thought. So, if you're offended...oh well. Maybe you deserved it.

    I’m sick to death of people saying that everyone should love themselves and their bodies no matter how they look. That it’s OK for people to be fat because they should love themselves. I’m sick of this campaign to force “curvy” or “plus sized” models on American society because they’re not curvy they’re fat. It is not OK to be fat, it is a serious health condition that needs to be dealt with.

    Oh look……another idiot that thinks shaming people helps them.

      Is it shaming to call a drug addict a drug addict? Is shaming to call a gambler a gambler? How is it shaming to call a fat person fat? You weren’t born fat, you became fat by not taking care of your body. The truth is that fat people are a medical burden on American society because the tax payer ends up paying into their vast medical bills. Being fat carries a wide variety of health problems and for many people those problems become the problems of those around them including their families and other tax payers. If you’re fat and overweight, can’t walk up a single flight of stairs without getting winded, can’t get around the grocery store without a scooter, can’t fit into a single airplane seat, can’t go ten minutes without a soda, you should be ashamed of yourself. That means you have destroyed your body, you have entirely disregarded your own health because you have no self control. That is nothing to be proud of. Human beings are not meant to be fat, our bodies don’t work properly when we are obese.

        Blah blah health blah blah burdens blah blah health. The reason people like you and other people who use shame against others is that the person you are shaming does not fit your or society’s idea of what is good or deserving of respect or being treated like a human being. Please don’t even pretend to care about someone’s health or anything else.

          I absolutely care about the health of others. That’s why I said everything I said. It’s not about being mean to fat people for the sake of being mean. It’s about recognizing that if you’re fat you have a problem. It is not OK to be fat just like it is not OK to be unhealthy in other aspect of life. Would you tell a drug addict that they’re fine and beautiful the way they are? Of course not because what they are doing is self destructive. Being fat is also self destructive. Stop making excuses for obese people and actually recognize there is a problem. Humans are not meant to be fat. We are not physically built to be fat.

            Uh….yeah….sure.

              I get it. I really do. It’s so much easier to make me and others like me out to be the bad guys. Why look at yourself and realize that you have a problem that needs fixing, realize that your lifestyle needs to be changed, realize that you need help and that you have might actually have to work to fix yourself, when you can simply turn it around and say that people like me are “shaming” you for being fat. It’s a lot easier to scapegoat others than it is to admit your own faults and work to fix them. Like I said this isn’t about “shaming” or insulting or demeaning anyone. It’s about forcing people like you to take an honest look at yourselves and realize that your self destructive behavior is not something to be lauded or to be proud of. You should not be telling other obese people and children that it is OK to be fat as long as you love yourself. You have a serious problem and it will never get fixed until you stop making excuses and do admit to it.

                Aww cue the faux concern. Dude, like I said before, you care NOTHING about people’s health. You’re a concern troll who takes pleasure in making others feel bad because YOU feel they are not worthy human beings. You’re a self-righteous douche nozzle who feels like people who don’t fit YOUR idea of what’s right should be ridiculed. You’re one of those people who feel like: “how dare they love themselves even though society tells them they’re unworthy”. Anyway I’m done having this convo you’re typical and boring.

                • Jake

                  You can make all the assumptions about me you want. It doesn’t change the fact that you refuse to face your own problems. I feel sorry for you. Waking up everyday trying to tell yourself it’s OK when you know it’s not. Trying fool yourself into thinking the diet soda or the small fries is going to make a difference. Nothing is going to change until you decide to make it happen. Stop telling yourself it’s OK. It really is alright to be upset with you what you are, it’s OK to look in the mirror or step on the scale and not be happy with what you see. That is the first step toward admitting you have a problem. There is nothing wrong with that. The road to self improvement begins with recognizing one’s own deficiencies.

    Is it shameful when a 7 year old weighs 150 pounds and her parents don’t do shit about it? Fuck yes. Especially when her parents weigh 400 pounds each. It’s perpetuating a cycle of unhealthy living. I do have concern for others health. That is part of my job. When someone I am responsible for thanks me with tears in their eyes because I helped them, it makes me feel good. I don’t demean obese people because I don’t know their story, but when a fat person shames my wife for riding an electric wheel chair at Walmart two days after having a foot surgery because they want it for the sole purpose of being fucking lazy…you can bet your ass I lost my shit and said some stuff. And it wasn’t mean stuff, it was truthful. But people today are so pussified they can’t handle that. She was a fat lazy slob that could use to walk a bit. I have lost family to diabetes caused by obesity so I have some concern for obesity in the world.

  • Anyone can be the healthiest they want to be. They just need to want it enough. Regular folks don’t need to look like fitness trainers or models. We just need to do the best we can, regardless of medical conditions and injuries.
