Today I find this.
Snippets of the insanity:
So if we want to remain slim, should we be shunning fat people?
“Concern over the obesity epidemic seems to be throwing up a whole load of off-the-wall ideas but the message remains the same, that sensible eating and exercise are the major components to get your weight under control.” (Dr Tam Fry, chair of the Child Growth Foundation)
In short, research is being done because of this horrible obesity is taking over the world problem. The research is looking at ways that fat people may not be at fault for being fat. But, we’ll end the article stating that people are STILL AT FAULT… and before that we ponder if we should SHUN fat people???!!!!!!??????!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow. The compassion just overwhelms me to tears.
I have an idea! Let’s shun ignorant bigots!
Okay, okay, I’m too much of a bleeding heart to really mean that. Shunning them would only allow them to evolve further into pond scum. Sigh. I read a few months ago that the Brits were going to try to teach school children to be able to think more subtley and not fear ambiguity. I hope they get on that already!
*Small disclaimer – I do not mean to bash all British people, but the institutions that perpetuate this ignorant non-sense.
