So fatty lardbuckets is right out then?

Calling people obese harms them, say they are ‘living with obesity’ psychologists advise

All rather twattish as of course the neologism picks up whatever the insulting and thus damaging connotations of the old word were.

  1. Those behind the study argue that people become overweight or obese as a result of a complex combination of factors, including genetics, responses to stress from childhood, sedentary lifestyles and lack of healthy food options.

    1. Genetics – how come it has occurred in the past two generations
    2. Stress from childhood – please demonstrate how children’s lives are more stressful now than in the past, I would hazard they are hugely less stressful
    3. Sedentary lifestyles – unless you are physically disabled, this is a choice you make
    4. Lack of healthy food options – they live in towns and cities teeming with supermarkets and food shops, they aren’t out in the Fens somewhere with just a tiny village shop.

  2. The authors urged the Government to tackle the problem of obesity in the same way it did smoking

    Somewhat confused given that the article emphasises the need to avoid shaming people.

  3. Nah. Living with obesity is what the rest of us are doing.

    Something I’ve noticed, this summer, on the paseo. Christ you Brits are fat bastards. Although Germans run a close second. We’ve even been running a competition. Photos of the fattest ones. Acres of bright red tattooed skin in some of the naffest summerwear going. Why do people insist on wearing clothes look like advertising hoardings?.

  4. Seeing as the obesity epidemic coincides with government promotion of the food pyramid which promoted carbohydrates and restricted fat consumption, government advice is best ignored.

  5. “The authors urged the Government to tackle the problem of obesity in the same way it did smoking”

    Ban eating in pubs? Wow. The return of the true boozer.

  6. “The authors urged the Government to tackle the problem of obesity in the same way it did smoking””

    Keep raising the tax on food? Ban eating and have all cafes and restaurants shut down? Become so dependent on the tax you can’t afford to complete the ban on all eating everywhere?

  7. They start off with a definition of obesity that includes every second-row forward in England, so of course “obesity” is not *necessarily* caused by lack of willpower.
    How about getting your definitions right before pontificating? Oh, no, that would never do!
    Among those genuinely obese a small minority are so without any failing in will-power but most are obese because the temptation to eat and/or the temptation to sit around idle are not resisted.

  8. One problem is simply that medics chose – for reasons of propaganda, I assume – to apply “obese” to people who are merely fatsos, or plump, or well-upholstered, etc, etc.

    So the actually “look at that!” obese don’t get the category of their own that they presumably merit.

  9. Does it harm us as much as being obese does?

    Now, I can see that there’s a point in telling people to let it go. This person’s made their choice to be that way, you yelling ‘hey fatty!’ isn’t going to change it and just makes them miserable – but never miserable enough to change – so . . . just let it go.

    OTOH, socialized medicine means all these bills fall on our heads.

    So pick, fat-arse, do you want me to pay your medical bills or do you want me to leave you alone?

  10. “Lack of healthy food options”

    For the forty-eleventh time: food is food. Obesity is quantitative, not qualitative.

    HOW ?!?! We only do it behind their back. Speaking of their back – “You could show a movie on that!”

  11. @ dearieme
    Interestingly the charts show 0% as underweight. That is utterly unbelievable. When I was young and fit I was classified as “underweight”

    Worldwide Climate change hysteria
    “Psychologists are treating a wave of children as young as 10 who are paralysed by climate change fear-mongering.”

    Stress burns calories = weight loss

    1-4 are all fake excuses

    Obese? I would be if I ate everything I wanted to, instead I eat sufficient to live and not gain weight
