Why Fat People are Unattractive
I saw this video on YouTube. The subject is about kids teasing another kid with, shall we say, a bit of a weight problem. It leads me to wonder why the fat people are teased and ridiculed and what exactly others can do about it.
First of all, I'm all for people "sharpening" each other as "iron sharpens iron," but ridicule is not the way. People should not confuse that with admonition of fat people. The bottom line is people are fat because they can't keep food out of their gaping maws or aren't putting the right kind of food in their gaping maws. Either way, the result is the same.
It is wrong for a person to be fat in my opinion. It shows a severe lack of self control on their part. I take extreme issue when fat people demand bigger seats at movie theaters or that they be charged a single seat on an airplane even though they require two. I take issue with it because it is something they are responsible for and could fix,but would rather force others to accommodate them.
Instead of whining about how they aren't accepted for being fat, perhaps they should look to improve their own lives and bodies and view their social plight as evidence that perhaps they aren't living correctly. On the other side of the coin, instead of feeling guilty and trying to accommodate the whiners, the rest of us should be more inclined to admonish, or at least ignore, those who think they are entitled because they have already entitled themselves to too much. I say this because there is no excuse for someone to be fat. Period. Sure there's the "fat" gene excuse, but I certainly don't buy it. There are tons of resources to get in shape: online, or in magazines and books, home gyms, gym memberships, etc.
From what I can tell on TV, people are looking for the "I want to do whatever I want and not suffer the consequences" solution which I'm sorry to say does not exist in this world for anything including weight loss. Maybe that's the bigger problem with society in general?
