As a person who is slightly overweight and cannot lose the weight due to a medical condition, I would like to tell your friend to fuck themselves.

Even if you could, you shouldn't have to just so assholes won't publicly shame you. Fuck that guy. With a friend like this, OP doesn't need enemies.

But its not anyone else's business how much you weight. People need to stop telling others how to live their lives and focus on themselves instead.

#35, exactly! I wonder what flaws people like that are trying to hide by pointing out what they perceive as flaws in others. Besides, beauty is not a number on the scale, it's how you carry yourself.

If your sentiment is that people should not shame others for their weight or appearance, then I wholeheartedly agree with you. But if I was to take your words at face value, I'd have to at least partially disagree. Sometimes, a line is crossed, whereafter someone's weight becomes your business whether you like it or not. If someone lets themself get to the point where they require special accommodations for their morbidly obese body, they become a burden to taxpayers, companies, public instituti

Agree with above. I only care what you do personally when it begins to affect me, selfish, maybe. And when people are morbidly obese, they often have to live on the taxpayers dime and that's just not right. Also, it sucks about your medical condition and that's why you should never judge until you have all the facts. However, it seems medically untrue that you couldn't lose weight. You can, it'd probably just not be in a healthy or sustainable way

Uh, I'm of the opinion that if you're fat and choosing not to lose weight, you're kinda bringing shit onto yourself. I'm fat right now, but I'm losing rapidly. Why? Because I'm trying. That alone garners respect from most.

@39, 35: not all pointing out of flaws are due to insecurity. Being fat is, in nearly all cases, an unhealthy lifestyle choice. In adults with no kids, I don't care. But if you've got kids and you're setting a shitty example and exposing them to health issues as a result, you're going to hear it from me. After all, it's no longer just your life you're responsible for. Teach your kids to be healthy, and if they don't like it they can throw that shit away and be fat when they're old enough to deci

You know what also causes health problems in the long run? Being skinnyfat with no cardio fitness. For all I've seen people talk about obesity being a burden on taxpayers for medical expenses, I've never seen anyone mention avoidably unhealthy skinny people - or people who deliberately run a higher risk of accidents that require care like, say, motorcycle drivers. It's hard to believe that's really what this is about.

#64, I feel your pain. Enlarged hyperactive thyroid here. And to the people who said I'm choosing not to lose weight, (and to the one asshat who called me fat, thank you for that, you prick) that is simply not true. I've tried every diet. I exercise daily. I eat healthy. I do everything I can and I cannot lose weight. My thyroid makes my metabolism very, very slow. So everything I eat just puts more pounds on. If I could do an exercise and go on a diet and lose weight I would. But I can't. So th

65 is spot on. I hate when people try to justify their hatred for fat people by saying it's about health and taxpayer's money. There are so many thin people that are not at all fit or healthy and cause the same cost increases in all those things everyone talks about, but they're never complained about. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but you can express yours without the incredibly transparent justification.

I had a roommate who would steal my phone in the middle of the night and go through all my personal data. Sometimes there are good reasons to have trust issues...

Mine either, my friend was driving this kid home to church camp, and he had his phone in the cup holder. The kid just took his phone without asking and went through all his texts.

Try explains the situation maybe? Although obesity is a sensitive subject, this situation doesn't seem that hard to fix

There's actually a couple of health related problems that come with being fat, or extremely skinny. However, this doesn't excuse anyone to bully, belittle, or insult anybody.

Exactly! How attractive a person looks is determined by a lot of things, most notably the person who is looking. A lot of fat(ter) people look radiant and full of life, which in itself is a beautiful thing.

There are also people who prefer people that are well above the 'healthy' BMI range. There's entire sites and clubs dedicated to helping people with that preference meet larger people to satisfy their desire. If it exists, there are people into it. If it doesn't exist, there are still probably people into it. Welcome to humanity.

I'm actually offended for them you don't call someone out based on something YOU see as an imperfection. f THEIR lives. That was extremely rude.
