Default the philosophy thread

you can come on here and talk about anything you like.
I'll talk about heavy or overweight people in this country. What is the deal with them?
Do they completely lack in self control?
Or does society have some part to play in it?
Well, I've read that many people who are overweight are victims of childhood molestation. They eat a lot and become purposefully unattractive, so they won't be seen as objects of sexual desire, after such a traumatizing experience.
That said, what about the individuals who are overweight and weren't molested?
Well, maybe a lot of them do lack in self control, and many overcompensate for their empty feeling inside, by overeating.
Here's another theory for you, and this I believe does pertain to some of them.
They say, everything in the world serves a purpose, so what purpose is it serving us to have overweight and obese people to look at?
It seems that as long as we need people to judge for one reason or another, they will be there for us.
Some people need the reassurance that there are more disgusting, more revolting people out there than themselves to help their own self-esteem.
In our sex obsessed society, I'm sure a lot of the chubs pack on the pounds, and think, 'fine, you think whatever you want about me,' and then are able to live probably happier lives than weight obsessed paper-thin models.
I believe there is truth to it's what's inside that matters.
If we didn't need to see overweight people, then we could be happy, and not really even notice them, and then, if we did, we could at least be more sympathetic, and not be so forthcoming in poking fun at them.

Fat people are disgusting. 99.9% of them are fat due to their diet and lack of exercise. Pathetic (the .1% are overweight due to medical conditions such as Diabetes, in which case I forgive them)

Yes, but do you enjoy calling them disgusting?
And if not, then can you at least admit the reason they're overweight is because they're unhappy, and be more sympathetic to their suffering?

Are you some sort of fucking retard or something?

They're overweight because they eat. IF they're unhappy, take up bulimia or anorexia.

Yes, but why do they eat so much? I believe it was Fat Bastard that said, "I eat because I'm unhappy, and I'm unhappy because I eat."
Of course, in the first post I alluded to the possibility that some fat people can lead very happy lives.
Some people were born in an environment that was very conducive to them being overweight individuals. Their parents buy nasty, unhealthy food, and let them eat a lot of candy. Then, once they become heavy, it becomes very difficult to break out of that mold. I don't think too much of myself. I believe I could be a very heavyset person, born in different circumstances.
One key, though, is we all need to stop judging them so much, if we did that, we would free them up to live happy, healthy lives.
So, to some degree, I'm saying that people who make fun of fatties are the reason that people are fat.
