The absurdity of hating obesity is beginning to wear on my nerves. While I don’t believe it’s the healthiest lifestyle, we, as a culture, hate obesity — not beccause people around the world are starving, but because we like to think being thin is BETTER.
Are you out of your gourd? For the first time in history a nation has more than enough food, even for our poorest, and we spend more time complaining about how it makes the rest of us feel who aren’t large?
Get a ahold of yourselves, people. You may not prefer it in a partner, but to spend hours wasted fearing for how large people might get who actually have enough food for themselves and their families should be the absolute last concern on your plate.
People say it’s greedy to eat so much when so many people around the world are starving. Hey, news flash, in the grand scheme of things, people around the world aren’t my problem. My first problem is taking care of people down the street from me, and their eating habits are the last thing I’m concerned about right now. How about drug habits? No jobs or skills to get them? Loving the unloved? Rescuing orphans?
And then, when I’m done helping those here in the states with the REAL problems, I’m not gonna say: “Hey, it’s time all these Fatties got thin.” NO. Now it’s time to go overseas and help those starving. You think large people here in the states are eating food that would otherwise go overseas? Pipe dreams, folks. We have enough food in this world right now to feed everyone, even with as much as America is eating. The problem is that those in control of those starving children STEAL what aid we do try to send them.
They oppress the weak, steal from those in need, and keep their hold on their little corners of this great grand institution and remain in their darkness. I think my attention should go to getting basic medical care and food stuffs to them, and how that is far more important than desperately hoping that the school system offering the same kind of food I ate as a kid has less transfats and pure cane sugar is STOPPED IMMEDIATELY! *desperate wailing and gnashing of teeth* Seriously folks? Get a freakin’ grip.
If you hate the fluffy people for their fluffiness, who has the real problem? Them for either self control problems, eating disorders or malfunctioning thyroids, or you for thinking you have any stake in how other people treat themselves? Start focusing on yourself. You wanna be trim? Be trim! Want your kids to eat right? How about making their lunch every morning and sending it with them? (Oh noes! Novel idea!)
And finally, being thin has no bearing on the quality of your soul. I know plenty of fit and trim assholes and natty bitches who fill a whole room with their egos, much less their waist sizes. If you think people can be thinner and it’s healthier for them, stop trying to legislate out the food from their fingers and start inspiring them to get off the couch and on the track! Be an encouragement, not a nag. Stop trying to control everyone else around you and start focusing on yourself.
You are the ultimate authority in your life, not anyone else’s. So next time you get your panties in a wad about how large a neighbor, passer by or politician is, ask yourself how unhealthy your own obsession with everyone else is and shut your f___’n trap.
Stop legislating the difference, BE THE DIFFERENCE!
