So it’s true! You can’t make a fat person thin by:
Shame, dieting, surgery, pills, taking away their children, putting us on reality shows, giving us pseudo psychological advice, graded how fat are children are or that telling us to just have one less cookie a day.
That’s right we are still getting fatter. But of course we are still base this on BMI which is a flawed measurement and a scale that still lists 25-29.5 as overweight although studies say this is the range that people live the longest.
Speaking of taking away children, in Missouri a man and his wife were denied the right to adopt a child which forced his to get stomach surgery. The worst part is that that had previously adopted a child without incident and he was just as fat then. This just goes to show size discrimination is as worse than its ever been and we need laws like the one we are trying to pass in Massachusetts (PDF) that protect parents as well as other fat people. This man and his wife are good people who opened their home to foster children, they don't need crap like this.
