Quoting Colt's mommy:" lol, whatever! I have a lot more empathy for people with medical issues now. Since I was pregnant and ... [snip!] ... how could anyone get addicted to them knowing they constipate you so much!! omg, that was one of my worst pregnancy symptoms :("


You're hilarious. "I try not to judge fat people" which means you really do. That's why you thought diabeetus was a "prevalent" threat to society, fat people is something you linger on. :D

Like, omg, how do people get addicted to pain killers after being on them for months from a serious spinal injury or something? This is so mysterious!

I do judge, I just think twice about it when I do. It's human nature to judge what is different from us. I just know the number of people with diabetes has gone up, and so has the number of obese people, and being obese is a risk factor associated with diabetes.....

First true thing you've said pretty much in the whole thread.



We also judge that which is familiar to us.

Quoting Colt's mommy:" What do you think of this mannquin? Are you "offended" by it? It was posted on my FB page and there's ... [snip!] ... to their demographic though. I am not offended by this, nor will I probably think about it again after this discussion, lol. "


No, why would I be?
Most of our population is overweight/obese. Why is it offensive to cater to the general population?
Big people need clothes too...

"Normal" sized is overweight/obese.
The average size in the US for a woman is a 14. That's considered overweight/obese...
I weight 225 and wear a loose 16.

I'm both...
I'm a 16 and obese. It's probably my body structure but eh. If going by BMI, I'm definitely obese.
