    When they're packing serious amounts of fat, absolutely. Fair enough if it's a medical condition, but (in my rather sweeping opinion) more often than not it's just pure greed/laziness

    They could have a health problem, such as an underactive thyroid, making them fat. And some people are super skinny and eat loads, works both ways. So no.

    Depends, chubby people are usually greedy or lazy but really fat people are greedy and lazy.

    Not really. I wouldn't judge people for being a certain weight or immediately think someone must be greedy if they are fat. It's their choice to be that size.

    Fat people only piss me off when they blame slow metabolism or genes for the reason they are fat. Yes, there is some evidence for certain genes that result in increased appetite, ect but they don't make people fat, only more likely to be fat. Anyone can be thin if they count calories and do some exercise.

    Lol at the thread title. In answer to the question- no, there is more than one reason that people get fat so i wouldn't just assume that a random fat person was greedy.

    I'd concur that they are gluttonous... the word greedy usually pertains more to money & possessions.

    Truth is... when you're greedy, you're more or less aware of how much you want whatever you want. There are overweight people who don't even realise how much they crave/eat, you know?

    So no... they're not necessarily greedy.

    There seems to be a certain stigma that fat people are greedy. Because they might not be able to control themselves when comes to eating.
