Hello! First time on here. I think that this is a very interesting topic, so I’ll try to give as much insight as I can.
First things off, alright, obese people should have to pay for two seats. In most cases, the person can control their weight by simply eating better. There are some genetic disorders, but those don’t exactly make people overweight, not full-on obese (I’ll reiterate on this later).
Personally, I don’t think that health at an obese size is possible, but I don’t know that much about it.
Obesity Should Not Be Glorified (sorry for the claps, i just need to emphasize)
It is killing yourself little by little. Obese people are more likely to get Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure etc.
There is a reason why being obese is unhealthy. If we stop taking weight into account and stop caring about what we eat, we’ll all eat ourselves into the ground.
Depends on what you mean by ‘fat’. If you just mean by a lil’ overweight, I’m not picky. Obese is a different issue. I have never come across an obese man or woman that is attractive.
I think that dieting is alright. Teaching your kids what’s healthy and what’s not is good parenting. Just don’t make the food intake of a growing child too little.
If you only make enough money for a one dollar chicken nugget meal at McDonald’s for your kids, I can’t say anything about that. If that’s the case, try to get to a food bank, but those aren’t everywhere. While it is unhealthy, the only alternatives are starving or not paying this month’s rent because of some apple slices. On the hand where your kid just really wants some KFC for breakfast and you do have the money for some of that good good organic nutrients, I think that’s abuse. If you do not care about your children’s health to were that now have health issues is bad. I can’t paste more than 2 links, but just google it.
Other than giving your child health concerns, your kid’s 100% gonna get bullied. ;/ So, if you think about it, that’s also gonna have a toll on their health. Bullies might make them stress-eat, and now your kid is depressed.
-IDK if I’m overstepping here, but that sounds logical to me.
Okay, here we go, boyos.
I love genetics. Studying hereditary disorders are my guilty pleasure, especially when I can pull weird genetic facts out of my ass at random. There are SOME rare genetic disorders that increase weight gain. PCOS and Prader-Willi are ones I remember off the top of my head. I don’t know that much about PCOS, but I know a bit about PW. PW does increase the possibility of overeating. On the ‘My 600 lb Life’ episodes, after childhood trauma’s, I hear a lot of them talking about PW. Their stomachs are like a bottomless pit. They literally do not know when they are full. I personally never usually get full either, but I still eat in moderation. They don’t. And in those cases, I do have to give a little bit of leniency. It is a condition in itself. Other cases are (, and I know that this isn’t ‘genetic’, but still related to disability in a whole,) if a person is in a wheelchair, and they have no way to exercise. No reason to chomp down on junk, but an excuse (I can’t think of a better word for excuse, I’m not trying to be mean here). SOME conditions make you obese. Genes, at the very least, make you a lil’ over. My dad is -not to be mean again- pretty large, and I am the tiniest bit overweight, but looking at me, you’d think I’m pretty scrawny. It’s just a lil’ effect, it won’t add 200 pounds to your weight!

I think I made this a little too long, but I hope it answers your question!
