I've never been to the Grand Canyon. I always wanted to go before they decide to fill it with cement and put in a mall.
But right now I can't. I don't want any of my money going to the State of Arizona which was one of the last states to recognize MLK's birthday, which treats their citizens of hispanic descent as second class, who won't cover organ transplants, and oh now wants to charge their fat citizens who get medicaid an extra $50.
So let's get this straight. Fat people due to stigma, victimization and villianized suffer low ecomonic standards of living which means we are more likely to rely on state services. $5o to a poor person can mean no rent or food. $50 less could mean eating crappier cheap foods.
And of course dieting and weight loss works. Just look at the 2-15% average success rates of long term dieters. Obviously fat people should lose weight because it's "healthy" even though a recent study has shown again that fat and fit people are heart healthier than thin and unfit people or that stigma and stress can cause health issues in fat people. What's more stressful than being told that despite your repeated attempts to lose weight, it's all your fault fattie.
So I won't be visiting the Grand Canyon anytime soon. I hope other people will stand with me and that residents of Arizona move to a more accepting state. Empty the state until there is nothing left but a lovely giant hole.
