I would like to add that alcoholics should not worry about what they wear. They should just be miserable and die.
Is this seriously what people have come to? Posting crap like this? Does obesity negatively affect your life so much that you are compelled to write this?
As others have written genetics do play a part in people being overweight. That's not the only issue. Obesity is also a disease and often is caused by an addiction (to food). Hence, my alcoholics comment. I think if you asked anybody that is overweight they would tell you they would love to be thin. Unfortunately, it is not as easy as some make it out to be. There are a lot of forces at play.
I am surprised by the lack of sympathy the poster and some others clearly lack for people that are overweight. Going by the statistics I am willing to bet my paycheck that all of you know someone that is obese. 1 in 4 Americans are obese. Heart Disease is the leading killer of adults in the US. So let's trivialize this EPIDEMIC by worrying about how these people look in their clothes.
I think I will pass on the bashing. Like others that suffer from other substance abuse issues I wish obese people well. I hope they can get to a point where they can make a change in their habits. I hope they live long, healthy and productive lives.
I feel sorry for the originator of this post. It must be difficult being so perfect. Apparently, we have found the one person on earth with no flaws. Amazing.
