Being obese generally doesn't make you an asshole/bad person. If you're a junkie or an alcoholic, the odds are you're a freak/asshole/idiot. You see, being obese is only really a state of physical appearance, whereas everything else listed is legit mind altering-in-a-bad-way **** .

You must not know many alcoholics if you think most of them are freaks/assholes/idiots.

But then again, how you define alcoholism may be different from mine. As setting that level is about as accurate as defining value.

I know more alcoholics than I'd like to. they are all certainly idiots. also, they're assholes. especially when drunk
User avatar #318 to #251 - slothboner (11/04/2013) [-]
Saying all alcoholics, or any classification of people for that matter, are idiots and assholes is moronic.
User avatar #333 to #318 - tsta (11/04/2013) [-]
I'd disagree with you.
User avatar #334 to #333 - slothboner (11/04/2013) [-]
Why?
I'm an alcoholic myself, and in the past have struggled with substance abuse. I have a full ride academic scholarship (idiots) to my state university, and a very large social circle (assholes). I can honestly say that some of the people I drink and drug with on a regular basis are more intelligent than people I associate with in my high level biochemistry classes. Being an alcoholic isn't a choice, if you knew someone affected by alcoholism you would know that.

You're assuming I don't know any alcoholics, and the people of that sort I know sure as **** are as I've described. My overarching point is that I don't respect these alcoholics just as the ones I know don't respect me. I have a very low tolerance for drunks; I find them to be excruciatingly annoying -and yes- idiotic assholes. I really am sorry if my beliefs offended you at all, but that's what I know and that's what I believe.

I guess we have different experiences then.

Most "alcoholics" I know are very well informed, capable, intelligent people.

So being addicted to hamburgers doesn't make you an asshole, but being addicted to something else does? Wonderful double-standards.
User avatar #241 to #239 - tsta (11/04/2013) [-]
I've never heard of anybody killing someone else for their next hamburger fix. have you? not a double standard at all
#243 to #241 - drugsnothugs (11/04/2013) [-]
Someone else, maybe not. But they seem to have no problems with poisoning themselves.

My point is, if someone is doing drugs or burgers, it doesn't define them as a person. Most of the time, addiction is something that creeps on you. It's one of those things that you say "oh it won't happen to me." So who is anyone else to pass judgement without knowing the full story?

80 percent of the comments here are from obese people. With simple math & a degree in quantum physics, I have come to a conclusion that I'm fat.

For me it depends on how far gone they are. If you tell them to stop drinking/smoking/eating junkfood and they react in a volatile matter, then **** em. They're aware of the consequences and they can go die in whichever miserable manner they've chosen. However if they feel guilty (mostly in alcoholics) then they'll have my sympathy and compassion.

I try my best to lose weight.
Ran 4 miles everyday during the summer and no STILL no weight loss (245 pounds)
People laugh at me when I run because they think I am wasting my time
as a person who joined track during senior year in high school and ran 7 miles as my best distance during the summer, I will not give up until the cruel comments, stares, and rejection stops.

As a fat person, I can say with certainty... **** fat people.

Seriously, it's rare that anyone just becomes fat. Sure, you might have a medical reasons for your fatness. Midgets have medical reasons for their fatness. Get the **** over yourself. We still make blond jokes. We still make midget jokes. We still make black, white, asian, whatever jokes. 90% of fat people are fat because they enjoy the fat life style. Eat the jokes, like you ate everything else. Fatass.

No, but like smokers and alcoholics, they may be trying to stop their unhealthy habits, and perhaps making fun of them or complaining about them isn't the best way to support their efforts.

User avatar #190 to #61 - greedtheavaricious ONLINE (11/04/2013) [-]
Depends on what are your eating habits, how you work out and such. Do you only aim for losing weight or do you actually want to build muscle?

I'm a bit fat myself and don't really care about working out to lose weight, the only reason I do it is to become stronger. That + eating correctly can help immensly.

Don't focus on losing weight. Focus on improving overall and eat relatively healthy, that's the key.

You can not:
-Run over someone with your car because you are too drunk.
-Annoy / passively destroy the health of those arround you, including children, because you don't give a **** about them.
-Gut someone to take their money because you need your ******* damn shot.

So, no, they're not exactly the same, you can't put them in the same boat.
BUT i understand your point, and i agree with you to some extent. We all usually deserve what we get, because we bring it upon ourselves most of the time.

It depends I think. Sometimes obesity is not a problem. I used too play rugby a lot, but broke my wrist and now I cannot. I am overweight, not fat, but chubby. I have no apparent health problems, and don't complain about my weight. I'd like to be thinner, but my desire for unhealthy food and being a lazy bastard are greater, so I accept my fault completely that I am fat, but I don't think I should be singled out or made fun for it, it's my choice. However I know someone similar to I, whom still plays rugby. He constantly complains that he's fat and everything that comes with it. It annoys everyone. Not being able to run far annoys me, I hope to join a gym when I go to uni soon, but I don't do anything helpful, so I can't complain about running far or blame anyone but myself.

It comes down to, if you're fat, you (in most situations) have no one to blame but yourself. I eat when I'm bored. I should either do more, eat less, or eat healthier. I do neither, and am overweight (chubby), and It's completely my fault. I can take a joke at my expense, and usually join in (although maliciousness is uncalled for). I hate girls who think that if they're fat guys should accept them anyway (I know a girl who calls herself a princess, expects everyone to run around for her and stirs up **** when she gets turned down, and is fat). If a girls turns me down because of my appearance, that's their choice, I'd do just the same.

Tl/dr If you're fat it's your fault, accept what people think and how you live, or get skinny.

Fat acceptance is no different from drug abuse acceptance, cutting acceptance, or anorexia acceptance.

I hate how I, a person who cannot make out letters farther than a foot from my face, have to pay $200 every few years for glasses while the clinically obese getting freaking sitty-scooters for free. It's not even the fact that what they get is free and mine isn't, even though my problem is real and theirs is made up, it's that a sitty-scooter doesn't even help them! Why not give them treadmills or bicycles? How in the Hell would giving people a free sitty-scooter help them overcome their problems? It literally helps them not overcome their problems.

User avatar #194 to #189 - thatkiddonovan (11/04/2013) [-]
The woman you're talking about has put all the money they earn from the show into trust funds for her daughters, and never sees any of it herself, she may be overweight, but that doesn't make her a bad person.

“You’re never gonna see me drive a Range Rover or a Mercedes. I’ll drive one if someone else pays for it. Never gonna live above my means.” -Mama June. (not bad for someone named 'Mama June')

So she may be overweight, but she's not a bad person. All I'm saying is don't judge someone unless you know them.
User avatar #196 to #194 - icametocomment (11/04/2013) [-]
You raise a valid point and I will not insult you.

But this is the same lady who is pretty much teaching her daughter to dress slutty and forever coast on her childhood fame. What's going to happen when her kid has to grow up? What's going to happen when any pageant kid grows up and finds out that real life is significantly different than pageants?
#207 to #196 - thatkiddonovan (11/04/2013) [-]
I'm not gonna insult you either.    
   
I get it, I would never put my hypothetical children, or anyone else's on tv, or into something with more pressure than they could handle.    
   
Pageants included. I just idk, the content bothered me. Everybody has their problems, and nobody should be judged based on one aspect of who they are without taking in all the others.    
   
That's all I was trying to say.

1. Well first off it's the internet, so we aren't usually at our best here, and second, I personally (emphasis on personally) do not believe parents should live vicariously through their kids, and that's the vibe I get from her.
2. Again, internet. Mocking is the national pastime here.
3. I never said it did.
User avatar #213 to #197 - darknesking (11/04/2013) [-]
So you don't have a problem with her outer appearance and the thing you truly dislike about her is the fact that she isn't a good mother? Which in that case is not true, she did not force her child to participate in the beauty pageants this little girl chose to be apart of them. And all the money from the show that shes on with her children goes directly into a savings account for them to spend when they get older, i do not see how she is a bad mother.
