anyone who says it's wrong to laugh at fat people is likely to be about 30 stone themselves. Remember that.
Like I said, that's because smoking/drinking/using drugs has more of an effect on society than obesity does. Ok, it isn't good for your personal health, but as long as you're aware of the health risks, then it's your choice (assuming it's the eating too much/not enough exercise kind of obesity, rather than due to a medical condition).
Does telling someone that you think they're fat have any real benefits? Generally, if someone really is fat he'll already know about it, so you telling him will just make him feel bad.
Because it would make him progress from 'I think I'm fat' to 'Oh my god, I'm so fat that people come up to on the street and tell me how fat I am'.
hi, i think its wrong 2 laugh at people i'm overweight and the simple reason is i need 2 take 16 tablets everyday to stop me having fits in which i could die. These are the only tablets that work. So just think b4 u say horrible stuff!!!!!!!!!!1
the reason i said you shouldnt laff isnt cos im fat, im a healthy size but i would prefer be healther. Is cos i was bullied at school, laffed at/pushed/hit for no real reason and i think its a pretty shallow and spineless thing to do when you dont know the person or why they are in that state.
I know some people need to take pills to keep them alive which makes them feel like they need to eat more or just make them put weight on as a side effect.
Anyone who thinks its funny cos someone is fat, might be right saying its their own fault but might not be.. In some cases i think the person laffing needs to get a reality check and grow up.
Most people know that the genetic stuff is just bullsh*t, so anyone using that as an excuse is simply kidding himself.
Do you think people are fat because they don't know any better? Plenty of people would love to lose weight, but lack the time to exercise in any meaningful way. If someone's already feeling bad about being fat, he'll hardly feel in a position to reply with a sarcastic remark.
Your point about tax is a difficult one. But why should fat people be charged for their medical treatment for conditions caused by their obesity when smokers/drinkers/drug users aren't? Even if we charged all those people, how could we determine whether or not their conditions had been caused by their drinking/smoking/obesity/whatever? What if their drinking/smoking/obesity had maybe contributed to their needing medical treatment, but hadn't directly caused it? What if two people had both smoked/drunk/eaten too much and now had some smoking/drinking/eating-related condition, but one was genetically pre-disposed to that condition? How could you work out to what extent their lifestyle choices had affected their health? Or would you also tax those thoughtless parents who stupidly passed on their genes so that their children would also suffer from their conditions and the taxpayer would have to fund their treatment? It seems fair enough in priniple, but impossible to apply.
