    Default Do Fat/Obese People Disgust You?

    Do fat people disgust you?

    Are you able to empathize with the reasons why someone may eat too much as opposed to someone who is thin - but drinks, smokes and does drugs to deal with life?

    Can you appreciate that there are mental health, emotional and psychological connections to overeating and obesity or do you just have contempt for fat people and think they are just simply lazy?

    It seems like some people give a pass to those who smoke or drink or do drugs to deal with stress, but if someone is shoving food down their throat to deal with those same issues, they are just viewed as lazy fat fucks.

    What's your take?

    They don't disgust me, but often their excuses do.

    Emotional issues aside, people don't have to be fat.

    It costs nothing to walk...

    It costs nothing to control portion sizes.

    Replace a bad habit with a good one. This is not an impossible task.

    Why are we so fat compared to previous generations?

    I believe it's because of our "victim" mentality. Everybody has a "condition" these days.

    Let's not blame cheap food either....

    They just closed a thread that had turned into a fat bashing fiesta, why open up a new one?

    A few of you seem intent on testing Brett's patience.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I never saw the thread and I am not looking to bash overweight or obese people. I am on the other side of this discussion.

    People don't need to drink or smoke to deal with stress or their shitty job or whatever - but they do. It's no different with food, except you can see the damage that they are doing to themselves. If people got obese from smoking, the reaction would be the same

    Well compared to previous generations for example - we didn't the have food industry putting specific chemicals into food to make us eat more of it to the point that we get addicted - thus buying more product.

    You should check out this documentary.

    I'll reopen this for now after rethinking it and talking with Sauce. We'll see how it goes. If it goes down the road I think it will, I'll close it for good.

    You're a mensch.

    No...that's not an opening for Sauce to rail against Fox News.

    I do think they should take stock and try and do something about it, but it's their life.
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    I'm a fat ass. Nothing to do with emotional stress, everything to do with a lack of will power combined with a job sitting on my ass and having access to crappy food that tastes good. Don't drink, don't smoke, this is my vice I guess.

    I'm a fat ass too. Not morbidly obese or anything but need to chuck 40 pounds. My weight has always been up and down but 5 years of university post-menopause plus sit-down jobs and too cold to be outside walking has added on the pounds...
