Heres how I look at things...
"Laugh at someone because of the way they look" - Yeah its a bit harsh because they're 10 stones overweight or 3ft tall/short or whatever but I wouldn't feel bad about it.
"Laugh at a fat girl right in her ****ING face" - Now you're just being a ******** and I would feel bad about it. I have to say that I wouldn't laugh at someone in their face in that way unless they were thick skinned* (lol).
*I was just joking about that last bit so don't go all 'internet moral crusader' on me.
I think some people are judging Naxalite too quickly. Some of you may be able to look at an overweight or obese person and look at them in the same way as any other person, but a lot of people (me included) do sometimes vocalise, as in, "gosh, she was quite large".
And yes, you do feel guilty about it (I know I do, as I would hate for people to comment on me were I obese) but you do it. You're human, you're infallible, you are not always nice. I applaud Naxalite for saying that she felt guilty, and for opening up the discussion.
Maybe fat people should be publically laughed at and condemned in order to shame (those who can lose weight) to lose weight? It is good for the health of the population for society to mock fat people!
You shouldn't feel bad otherwise overweight people might think they are making people feel bad just by going around everyday and Im sure that would damage there confidence.
I'd never laugh at a fat person, since when I was fat I was laughed at, and it hurt, but fat people never get my full respect.
you feel bad for behaving the way nature intended?
don't make me laugh at you.
Does being fat really harm other people? Drink driving can kill other people, alcohol and other drugs can affect your behaviour, there are issues around secondhand smoke, whereas banning obesity (aside from the impracticality of enforcing such a ban) would be like banning ugly people.
