    Re: Half Ton Teen: Is This Child Abuse?

    I am sick and tired of making excuses for fat people. We can't say what we think about them because it will hurt their feelings... They can't be faulted for their fatness because someone else is always to blame. HOGWASH!!! If you are fat and obese, it is YOUR FAULT! No one elses... It is about time we can tell people that. I am tired of people telling me I am too thin (BTW, I am thin, but also athletic and rather muscular). The fact is, I am NOT too thin, but it usually comes from people who are actually a little bit on the fat side... but I can't say that... can it... it is rude and impolite... REDICULOUS!!! Fat people are FAT!!! it is about time they realize this and do something about it... and if one of those fatsos EVER oozes over into my airplane seat that I can COMFORTABLY sit in... %$^%$%!!!!

    When I was in high school I would would have been one of those dick heads to tease someone that big. It doesn't make it right though.


    There's got to be some sort of pressure to stay healthy.
    I imagine that if they were actually concerned with what assholes thought then they wouldn't be that big in the first place.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Agree. They will never be able to have a healty realationship til she gets help too and while the Dad did not seem to have her kind of problems? He should seek some help too and of course group family counseling.

    Problem is that we have come to accept this as a society, so there is no incentive on the part of the parents to control their children. Also, but the time you are a teenager, you should definately know better. What we need to be able to do is to TELL people that they are FAT and they need to lose weight. We need to stop having civil rights for cellulite... we need the fat advocacy groups to stop complaining when fat people are required to purchase two seats on a plane... we should not accomodate to THEM. THEY are the ones with a problem, not those of us who are at the natural and normal weight for a human being...

    But with hoarders? A lot of it is mental illness. Same with overeating.

    I think the show only covers non-medical cases. They are obviously teens, so 13-19. The parents are obviously horrible for not realizing the red flag.
