It's A Disease... Like AIDS
Like many, I don't believe obesity a disease because it doesn't fit in our traditional definition. But for the sake of comparison, AIDS is the best match. Obesity is like non-sexual AIDS. Having sexual relationships with many increases chance of having AIDS, and eating many burgers increases the chance of obesity; Nor AIDS or Obesity affects you directly. Instead, both weaken your immunity system and makes your body susceptible to more disease. Both are fatal if not treated properly. If you want to debate if it's a disease, click here
Your Body, My Money
Many fat people argue that it is my body, who are you to judge? But fat people are more likely to get infected with a disease (refer to the first point). From where do you think the money for free medical services come from? Doctors who assist them get paid for their work. That money comes from government and hence taxes we pay. If you're eating 5 pizzas a day then it is your fault. It isn't my duty to pay for your health. If you're sucking that money, needy people are less likely to get that free health care.
Losing Weight is Difficult: A LIE
Another very common excuse told by fat people. Believe me, it is easy if you've control over your taste buds. Not necessarily you need to heavy exercise or go completely vegan. Just eat low-calorie food and reduce your daily calorie consumption by 250 calories. DONE! Fat people just give excuses to avoid that. They compromise their health for taste buds. What right do I've to say this? I've lost about 66 pounds with the same strategy. You've to make compromises to earn something. You're lazy to exercise? It's okay. Taking hot bath for an hour burns equal calories that of one-hour exercise.
Fat is NOT Attractive
It's time we should accept the reality. Fat is not attractive. I know you're going to throw some pictures of plus-sized models on my face but I bet same models will look even more attractive after losing some pounds. Fat and Chubby have different meanings. Fat is obese, overweight as against chubby is slightly more than perfect weight. If you want honest opinions about it, ask girls if they like fat men. Men aren't much picky (or some are desperate ) hence they don't speak against fat women. But women themselves do. Often we see that as a very common double standard. "If a woman is fat, see her inner beauty and if a man is fat, he's ugly".
It can affect your future generation
Although we're living in a civilized era, the most basic biological goal of individual's life is to reproduce. But obesity is a problem there as well.
A study by Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet suggests that women are more likely to have babies with serious birth defects if they are obese. The researchers examined data from over a million pregnancies. There were approximately 44,000 birth defects detected. Other risk factors were excluded, allowing the association between obesity and birth defects to be explored directly.
Body Positivity Discourages To Lose Weight
Body positivity started by feminism encourages to love our body. But at the same time, it tells fat people "It's okay to be fat". It is not. Refer to all previous points on this take. fat is not okay. Sure you should love body but you should also work on it. We work on the things we love, try our best to make them perfect so why not our bodies? I'm not saying you should hate yourself hell no nobody wants you to. But If you work on your own body, you'll love yourself even more :)
Fat Shaming Works
And the truth is, we shame fat people for a reason. It’s not just cruelty; it’s for their benefit, our benefit, and the good of the species. In 2007, a team of researchers from the University of British Columbia found that fatness can trigger feelings of disgust and nausea in healthy people — age-old evolutionary signals of a threat to human health, like bacteria, viruses, or illnesses. The same instincts that protect us from plagues protect us from lardbuckets too. Fat shaming works is a scientifically proven thing.
