I dont believe that obesity is crime. Some people inherit their love for food from their parents. They just eat and dont seem to realise that they have eaten way too much. But i also think,obese people do feel really bad about their weight which could cause them to have eating disorders, over self-Conscious towards the things they do/eat, and some obese people will have a low self-esteem due to their appearance. We shouldn't really make them feel more bad abt it but encourage them to exersize daily and eat healthy food.

not a crime, just an addiction (meaning food), like ciggarettes. i really think that there need to be more support groups, detox programs, and other things like that to help obese ppl who are addicted to food like there are for smokers, alchies, and drug addicts.

I'd say that it is a crime against humanity in general, because most of the overly obese people, get themselves thanks to that obesity classified as invalid, so they don't need to work anymore, but will receive money, and that just solely based on their fat asses, which was their own fault in most cases.(not referring to people with metabolism problems)
While those fatties can stuff their mouth with one hamburger after another, there are some others who are happy to get some bread....-__- With the food those fatties consume we could save a whole country from starving. -_-
It is a crime when a mother is too lazy to do something with the child, and instead of talking to it she feeds it till it gets so fat, sooo fat. There have been many cases were parents just started to feed their child with sweets and other unhealthy stuff, just so that the child will stop complaining or whining. Easy way to get out of it, but everything has a limit. Being fat is not just unhealthy but as well very unnatural.

And someone who is fat, and considers himself as financially poor, is just a fuckign liar. How can one get fat if one is really poor? Bs.

Fat people are a burden. Fat people are pretty much self-centered, whining about their lardy bodies and the problems caused by their fatness, it's their fault, so stop whining and get your FAT ARSE out of this fucking chair and start to go to the gym instead of going to Mc Donalds. You are fat? People make fun of you because you are fat? Your fault. Go cry over it.

Ehhh... while I agree that some people are like that not every overweight person is selfish and lazy as you say. In some cases obesity can be caused when someone is chronically depressed and that is a sickness and a sad thing to see~ not something a person should scorn :\

The point is that I didn't say ALL. -__- Obviously, there are always some exceptions, but eh, I still don't think that being depressed, or having a job where they don't have to move that often is a good excuse. You can ALWAYS blame your surrounding for your stupidity, laziness, mistakes, etc. Being depressed, hell who ain't depressed? Everybody is depressed to some point. Besides that eating ain't a solution, it's their fault for picking the wrong solution to their problem. They will only feel shittier, after noticing that they are looking like sumos. I mean, shit I am chronically depressed, but I don't stuff myself with food, just to feel better.

Although~ I completely disagree with this point. People assume that if a person is fat it's because they spend a lot of money on food... but in fact healthy foods are extremely more expensive then junk food. So you can say that it cost people more to be healthy then then it does to be the opposite >.<

Well, obviously they aren't poor enough, otherwise they would be thin.

Obesity is not a crime. It's just that people tend to eat a lot when they get depress or they have something coming up and would want to relieve the stress or what. I think they just have to find another diversion for their feelings. I agree with the posts above, it's really unhealthy and can even harm you in the long run

*shakes head* And I'm not saying that everyone who uses depression as an excuse isn't full of bullshit, just that "there are always some exceptions".

I'm not talking about the 'oh I feel lousy today'~ being clinically depressed is mentally crippling disease and without a doubt life altering. Feeling sad and depressed is a normal reaction to a stressful life situation. It's normal to feel down after a major disappointment, or to have trouble sleeping or eating after a difficult relationship break-up. Usually, within a few days, we start to feel like ourselves again. Clinical depression is different. It involves a noticeable change in functioning that last for two weeks or longer. Imagine that for the last three months you've slept more than 10 hours a day and still feel tired, you have stomach problems, you're unable to cope with life, and you wonder if dying would solve all your problems. Or, imagine not being able to sleep more than four hours a night, not wanting to spend time with family or friends, and constantly feeling irritable. And when friends try to reach out to you, you get even more upset and bothered. You lose perspective, and you don't realize that what you're experiencing is abnormal. Unlike normal stress and sadness, the symptoms of clinical depression persist and do not go away no matter how much the individual wants.

We know now that eating too much won't solve your problems... but when your prospective is messed up during a serious depression you won't realize that.

I think that in general it is not something that is acceptable to be obese. While I don't think it is a crime I do think that people should feel bad for being obese.

What if someone is grown fat and u said , "Obesity is a crime" ? You would make people sad or sometimes they don't even give a damn . When they are feeling stress out , they become obese . like what realglitch says , they became obese because they don't move their asses , i agrees . Not all people wants to be fat , it is their body who takes in all the food and stored them up . Yeah ~ obesity can kill people too , due to too much cholesterol . fats and etc stored inside their body .Do some exercises everyday to keep u healthy .

it's not a crime, it starts as the effect of depression or sedentary lifestyle but later it becomes a disease
later people cant just stop eating because their bodies needs large amounts of food, and they cant
excerise because they can barely walk, beeing obese is diferent than beeing fat, very diferent so dont
mix them up.



Well, obviously they aren't poor enough, otherwise they would be thin.

this comment is just heartless

like someone said, obviously obesity isn't a crime, but people should be more healthy, but hey, some fat people i know are really cool!

Yeah, sure, that's so fat. (sarcasm)
This happens when the stomach is filled with air/gas, so it looks bloated, but it's caused due to the lack of food for over a longer period, it can as well be caused due to some parasites, such as worms living in someone's organism.
