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.

I don't see how the obese have immunity from judgement or being cared for especially.
Explain.

-The whole shallow guilt tripping for not finding fat people attractive.   
   
-The whole A&F uproar with them refusing to cater to fat people.   
   
-The fat acceptance movement.

i'm a skinny guy and i dont really hold back on my opinion about obese people.

BUT: i have to say the campaign about big is beautiful is ok in my eyes, because even if i dont find them attractive i know a few guys who like more meat on their women. so lets not make them get depressed and such and rather have them search for the guy who likes it that way and make them believe that he really likes it!

I totally agree with this. I used to be on the heavier side, at 5'10" and 216. I finally got off my ass and worked hard, and now I'm down to 182. Sure it was maybe the hardest thing I've ever done but it was well worth it

Fun fact: most of the morbidly obese people come from the poorest areas. All they can afford to eat is cheap stuff, and cheap stuff is usually really unhealthy.

no its because cheap stuff is the good stuff and you can get lots of it. a large majority of Organic stores accept Food Stamps and you can budget to eat healthy and not 4 plates of $1 pizzas

This argument is devolving into stupidity. I'm ending it before we go off track, which is inevitable at this point.

So back to the original points, statistically, the poorest places are also the fattest. You can look that up, fat stats vs poor stats (living poor, that is, not tribe people or homeless)

Where are you getting these statistics? 75% of weight issues is moderation?

Cleveland, Ohio: 3rd highest percentage of poverty in a large city according to 2012 census, 3rd most overweight city according to Men's Fitness magazine.

Detroit: ******* Detroit, in top 10 fattest cities in every statistic thing I can find, 4th most obese city according to Men's Fitness

Memphis, Tennessee: 9th highest poverty percentage in a large city (2012 census), most obese city according to Men's Fitness.

Anyone else not care about all this "unpopular opinion puffin" and "confession bear" crap?    
   
Also, there are some circumstances beyond a person's control that can cause them to gain weight. For example, some medications can cause weight gain.

So what if they've been depressed and are obese as a result of comfort eating? Pretty much sums me up.

Calm the **** down. I'm working on my way back to a healthier lifestyle.

At the end of the day everyone deserves immunity from judgement, who are you to make assumptions on someones appearance or addictions ect, that doesn't define who they are, its their choice to make not yours. For example, I'm a smoker and perfectly aware of the hazards, and I could give up tomorrow if i wanted to but I haven't yet and don't think I will in the near future either. Smoking is something I do for me, I enjoy it and its my choice, yet complete strangers think its okay to come up to me and make passive aggressive comments, such as 'Your lungs must be so black, you're going to die' and so on. Seriously?! tell me something I dont know ********.
I have to add that I think being overweight is also a choice, healthy eating and enough exercise and you will be fit. However that does not mean we have the right to lay down judgement on people who decide not to go down that route.

Honestly, some people are fat because they fall into a deep depression and just don't care about what happens anymore. They just sit there, not being able to handle what the world is doing to them. So they just watch TV, play video games, and eat food for hours just for comfort. It's kinda what happened to me. But I managed to get my life back on track and lose most of the weight

I'm fat because I just don't give a ****, I don't think it should be a judgement of someones character or life style. I know people infinitely more athletic that look bigger and weigh more than I do. I just judge people on their personality and how they treat others.

You can give that exact same justification to an alcoholic / drug addict / smoker.
I've been through the same experience, yet I can only blame myself for it.

Some people really do have a genetic predisposition to obesity.

Most are just lazy, greasy people though. :p

You cannot put being fat in the same class as illegal substance abuse or in the same class as alcoholics. It's like saying crossing the road without using the crosswalk is as illegal as speeding. One is far more dangerous to others, such as the walker (fat ironically) is only putting themselves in harms way where as the speeder (drug/alcohol) is actually putting others at risk besides themselves due to their behavior. But don't be hasty to judge, neither wants a bad outcome really.

I know I am fat and I understand everyone has an opinion. However, if I hear you insult my weight, I am going to want to hurt you. Just the same as someone who taunts a smoker, alcoholic, or junkie. I can't speak for everyone, but for me I don't handle taunts very well and I am sensitive about this problem, and will likely become angered by accusations and ****** remarks.

TLR: I will ******* hurt you if you hurt me

You really are just mad at yourself but too much of a coward to face your own problem. You get annoyed because you don't know what to do about it. So if someone points out your shoes are broken but your too poor to afford a new pair, ask for help.

You assume that being overweight is something you can just ask for help with anywhere. Also not mad at myself at all, my life is pretty great tbh, I just don't like being taunted or insulted. If you would like a onhand demonstration, go up to a real biker, call him a pathetic chode for riding said bike. Give 5 seconds for demonstration to begin.

Not a very good example unless I road up with something better. You shouldn't take offense over facts. Learn to laugh about them and laugh at yourself. And yes you can ask for help when it comes to losing weight, you can literally ask anyone and every single person has an opinion on it.
