Thought of the day–8/28/2012- Tuesday “Rant Day”

Hey guys!  So, today is “Rant Day”, but to tell you the truth, it’s been getting harder and harder in the last few weeks to actually find something to rant about.  Well, I found something today, and I’m gonna share it with you…firstly, here is what I read, along with the link to the page:

“Fat People Suck by The King Posted 11.18.2003

I have a problem with fat people. Whenever I look at someone
who is obese I get this bottled up rage inside of me. Don’t
ask why or how. It just happens. Nothing makes me more sick
than seeing a fat person with a positive self-image about
themselves. When fat people think they’re cool or the shit I
get this uncontrollable aggression where I want to rip them
limb from limb. The kind where you just walk up and punch
them right between their squinty “fat” eyes. I have come to
realize that there are several different types of fat
people. Now don’t get me wrong. I would never want to
stereotype fat people, however, here is a list of how all
fat people are. Each fat person has at least one of these
characteristics in them:

1. The Social Fat Guy – This is the guy who tries to be the
life of the party. The guy in the Hawaiian buttoned down
dress shirt that’s not tucked in. These guys are very eager
to fit in. If you ever need some quick cash ask to borrow
money from them. They will never ask to be paid back in
fear that it might upset you.

2. Fat Person With A Crush – This is the person (usually
female) who tries to get attention by making it very public
who they have a crush on. Whether the crush involves
someone they actually know or a celebrity they act like
they are madly in love with them (Think Rosie O’Donnel and
Tom Cruise before she turned dyke). They tend to flirt very
heavily with guys way out of their league.

3. The Fat Friend – This is the very sensitive fat person with
lots of friends of the opposite sex. The majority of these
friendships form out of pity. I happened to see two
different occasions of this at lunch today. This obese guy
was eating with two girls obviously out of his reach. Same
with this huge fat bitch who sat down at this guy’s table
and made him eat with her. They were only one table apart
and I couldn’t help but think, “These two would make the
perfect couple”. Another classification commonly used for
these type of obese individuals is called the “Great
Personality Friend”.

4. The Fat Person In Denial – These are normally males who
still hold the notion that they are big-boned or never lost
their baby fat. They just don’t understand…but we do.

5. The Fat Girl Who Wears Skinny Girls Clothing – This is by
far the most troubling characteristic a fat person could
carry. Some fat females take it upon themselves to push the
limits. They like to wear tube tops, short skirts, and
other skimpy clothing that reveals their abnormally sized
body. The epitome of this is when a girl wears a shirt that
shows her belly button ring while simultaneously showing
every fucking cupcake and hoho this girl has eaten in her
life. If looking at her doesn’t repulse you enough just
remember girls like this are scientifically known to carry
more STD’s. They also tend to wear pants so tight that the
little flap on the front flips over and you can see every
notch of the zipper holding on for dear life before it
explodes at the seam.

6. The “On A Diet” Fat Person – This is the type of fat person
who orders two Super-Sized Big Mac’s with cheese, large
fries, and a large diet coke. They claim to be on a diet
yet you never notice a difference in their appearance. They
order a salad for lunch and then consume 5,365 calories at
dinner alone.

If you see a fat person, your best option is to remind them
how fat they are at least twice a day. Destroying their
self-confidence and ridiculing them is a very productive
weight loss technique in which you are actually helping them
in the long run. Keep in mind that fat people also think it’s
funny when you mumble under your breath when they order their
meals. Just make sure you avoid any sympathy directed towards
them because it’s their own damn fault they’re fat plus it
will encourage them to stay fat.”

Okay, so generally, I wouldn’t post someone else’s FULL post, but there didn’t really seem to be any bit of that hate that I could cut out.  So, my first problem with this person and this type of thinking is that for some reason, this guy, (along with A LOT of others), believe that for whatever reason, if you are overweight, you should not be allowed to like yourself, have fun, have friends, or have a positive self-image.  Secondly, he says that he would never want to stereotype someone, yet he has already done this in the previous sentence saying that fat people have “squinty” eyes.  I’m fat, but I’m pretty sure that I don’t have “squinty” eyes.  And does he hate everyone of asian decent too, due to their eye shape?  And gosh, he must REALLY hat fat asians…fatassed AND squinty-eyed…a double whammy!

I read through this guy’s six descriptions of fat people, trying to decide which one I am, (you know, since I’m fat, I couldn’t possibly be my own person).  I have decided that I am actually a mix of two of them, the “Social Fat Guy”, and “The Fat Friend”, with possibly a bit of the “‘On A Diet’ Fat Person”.   I do wear the unbuttoned, untucked shirts, and I do strive to fit in, yet I also have a lot of female friends, many of whom might be considered to be “out of my reach”.  I’m also on a diet. 

I guess the thing that I have to wonder with people who think this way is “Why?”  What could make someone harbor so much hate towards a person with a certain body type that they want to “rip them limb from limb”?  Is it that fat people are deemed lazy?  If anything, I think fat people are the least lazy of everyone!  I mean, why don’t you carry around an extra 100lbs, 200lbs, or even more, and see how it affects your daily life.  I guarantee that you wont walk around the same or run to the gym to work out quite as often.  And he complains that fat people eat SO much…well, yeah, they do.  But you know what?  Firstly, it’s their right to eat as much or little as they like, and secondly, do you not eat more after a long day of exercise?  Because let’s face it, when you are carrying around an extra 200lbs + (as I am), EVERY day is a long day of exercise.  Now, that doesn’t mean that I don’t do additional workouts or exercise, because I do.  But until you find yourself carrying around that much extra baggage all day, EVERY day, you just couldn’t even imagine.  And then there is the argument to just lose weight.  Well, yeah, that would be nice wouldn’t it.  I mean, if I lost 2lbs. a week (the recommended maximum to lose per week), well, let’s see…it would take me two years to go get down to my goal weight.  2 YEARS!  That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to do it, and that I’m not trying, but seriously, you can’t just say, “Why don’t you just lose weight?”, because it’s not that easy, and it doesn’t just happen overnight.  And the fact that you might see a fat person eating out DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE NOT ON A DIET!  I mean, I am currently on Weight Watchers, but do you think that in the next two years that it takes me to lose my weight that I am NEVER going to eat a fattening meal?  That I will NEVER eat McDonalds or Cheddars, or mexican, or pizza?  I mean, yeah, to lose weight, you have to have determination, but you can’t expect a person to subsist entirely on salad for two years.  It is just impossible.  And finally, his last comment, that you should never give any compassion or sympathy to someone overweight, and that you should tear them down and destroy all of their self-confidence, because yeah, that is how you should treat another human being.  I just hope that someday, this guy gets back what he gives.  It just blows my mind that someone would feel like he does and think that it’s ok. 

Anyways, I guess that’s all.  I just hope that for those of you who are out there reading this who share the opinion of the guy who smeared his hate all over the internet, you can step back and realize how hard it is to be fat and how hard it is to change.  And realize that it is okay to be happy.  Some people have no problem being fat, and there is nothing wrong with that.  Yes, maybe it causes additional health issues, but sometimes it doesn’t.  And you know what?  It may take me two years to lose enough weight to reach my goal, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be happy with who I am until then.  I mean, I could walk outside and be hit by a bus tomorrow, so shouldn’t I live every day to the fullest and live happy with who I am?
