liam76: National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance

I'm going to start up the Nation Association to Advance Asshole Acceptance. Everyone treats me differently just because I'm an asshole. It's not fair that you stigmatize all assholes as people you don't want to be around.

a big 'hats off' to all you self-proclaimed wonderful parents that had to rush in to tell all how your children are slender and properly nourished. everyone is impressed that you can do what should be standard fare for child rearing.

meanwhile there is a crapload of parents & guardians that are not as intelligent, educated, self-aware or caring as you are, and their little chubby children suffer for the bad habits passed upon them.

this is one more example of how not everyone is qualified to be a parent but they are any way. but as long as you got yours, who gives a damn. not your problem.

this is what happened to me when i went to Disneyland. i'm still trying to work it out in therapy years later:

I have three kids and we don't talk about not being fat but DO talk about how important the food and drink choices they make are. I say we start a Fark theme park where fat kids and sharp knees are called out for what they are - a BLIGHT!

ObscureNameHere: Digitalstrange: ObscureNameHere: I am one of those freaks who think that parents with clinically obese children should be charged with child abuse.

You are also a moron. Obesity does have genetic causes and predispositions. I have a friend with a child who is very obese.

Yeah....fat people like to say that a lot.

For every 1% that have a true, medical condition for it, there are the 99% that shove pizza, ice cream and ho-hos down their offsprings' gullets as they huff and puff their way from the kitchen to the X-Box room. Unfortunately, the 99% try all claim that they are somehow part of the medically induced 1%.

"I try and try to lose weight! I drink Diet Pepsi with my re-fried Chicken & Cheeze combo!"



I'll buy that metabolism or genetics can cause people to be overweight to a degree. But there's a level of obesity where simple laws of thermodynamics have to take over. Matter in your body just doesn't appear. It has to come from somewhere. And that somewhere is your pie hole.

How, then, does one explain the sudden explosion in obesity which began in the mid-1990s? I suppose it's not impossible that some sort of ecological disaster around that time caused the genes of thousands of people to mutate in the exact ways that would cause this sorts of thing, but it doesn't seem likely. Far more probably is that genetic causes have nothing to do with the predicament we find ourselves in today, and that it can only account for a number of people roughly corresponding to pre-epidemic obesity rates: in other words, a small minority of modern cases.

Mugato: For the love of Christ.

I've been to EPCOT. Disney in general has some of the most grotesque, morbidly obese specimens I've seen in my life. And they're not all American. In fact when I do hear them speak to order another $20 waffle cone, they're mostly European. Shame on EPCOT for caving into those fat farks.


Just spent a week in the Orlando Disney parks - first time back in 10 years.

What struck me at the parks was how many more fat lazy bastards there were. Wasn't a single minute execpt on the monorail were I couldn't see a morbidly obese person on a hoveround "personal transport". That and the number of strollers - even kids in the 5-7 year old range had strollers. Outside many attractions was now a "parking lot" full of both strollers and electric fat movers.

Guess we're just getting 'em used to never moving around for themselves - got to prepare the next generation of hoveround fatasses.

Futuristic shiny city on a hill? Nah, we're going with "don't get fat" now.

The future is Wall-e. It was sent back though time to show us that we don't need to do anything, ever, and it will all work out fine. After it was released, Epcot had to change it's focus a little to what could be, not what will.



Exactly. As soon as I read the first line of TFA I combined the image of fat people with EPCOT being futuristic and thought this:
