Everyone is so fat.

This!

In my recent trip to Ontario I was disgusted by the omnipresence of fat / obese people. It's completely out of control. Fat is ugly! It's ugly on me and it's ugly on others. And it's incredibly unhealthy. We're taking diversity too far when we no longer distinguish between ugly / beautiful and healthy / unhealthy. It's all good! (No, it isn't.)

I need to lose weight. I'm working on it. I just don't understand how so many Westerners just let themselves get fatter, fatter, and fatter. Lose weight people.

I'm from the West and I'm shocked by fat people when I go home. I can easily imagine east Asians being shocked by it and commentating on it.

If you're fat, you SHOULD lose weight. I'm entitled to think that, and you're entitled to ignore me, that's my philosophy. And I'm not obligated to find anyone attractive, that's up to me to decide.

Massive people are not beautiful due to their size, in the same way that if I got hit with a shovel in the face 3 times, I wouldn't try and pass myself off as a model.

Although I am a cis straight white(ish) man in relatively good shape due to my own choices (scum I know), I am still one with the struggle. That being said I find your post...... triggering

Triggering a diet, I hope.

I said more than once that I find fat on myself ugly. So why is it 'triggering' to state that I also find it ugly on others? Fat is ugly. It's not beautiful and it's not healthy. And in Canada, with universal healthcare, it's a burden on the social system. Like smoking there is nothing positive to be said about being fat. Some people have medical conditions, or inherited DNA, that contribute to being overweight. I understand that and I respect that. But the vast majority are fat by choice.

People can be fat if they want, but don't expect me to think it isn't ugly. We've been born with beautiful bodies, why turn something beautiful into something ugly?

And yes, Mr. Trump, you are the fattest American president in living memory. You need to go on a diet.

Clinton

Anyways, you mean to tell me that none of you ever have gone chubby-chasing?

I agree that the fat-shaming is a good thing and people need to get off their duff, at the same time, no reason to be a total hater. Be a shamer not a hater.

Honestly I was having quite a pleasant Monday until I read this. How is it 2017 and racists like this still feel comfortable to spout their hatred?

There's no way he's for real. The word "racist" tipped me off.

Has anyone mentioned anything along these lines yet (referring to the title of the post)?

"American/Western food must be giving everyone diarrhea.  :sad:
Why else does everyone here wash their hands after using the toilet?  :huh:
And they use SOAP when they wash their hands too?! Why???"  :huh:

"Phew! So far I've been able to completely avoid interacting with scary racial minorities, just like everyone warned me. I hear eye contact is the first stage of larceny and a definite no-no."
