Article Roundup

Hey guys!  What’s up today?  Not too much here, just been browsing for something to write about today, and guess what?  I’ve found something interesting.  So, you know how you’ll be on Yahoo.com, scrolling through the news stories, and you’ll see some article about obese people?  Well, I’ve done a little work and rounded up a couple of them and will share the links, then discuss my thoughts (which will probably be negative and sarcastic, you know how I am!).

Okay, so here’s the first one:

http://www.foxbusiness.com/personal-finance/2013/01/25/obese-drivers-up-to-80-percent-more-likely-to-die-in-car-crashes/

The article is “Obese Drivers up to 80% More Likely to Die in Car Crashes”.  This article discusses (obviously) how us fatties are more likely to die in car accidents due to the fact that cars are not made to properly hold or restrain an overweight person.  The seat belt is usually positioned wrong, according to the article, which allows an obese person to be thrown around more in a crash.  Yeah, read the rest if you’re interested.

Next:

http://www.redorbit.com/news/health/1112760604/parenting-obesity-fussy-babies-television-010913/

This one is “Obese Mothers More Likely To Use The Television To Soothe Fussy Babies”.  Pretty much, it states that fat mothers tend to watch more tv than thin mothers and therefore, if they have more active and fussy babies, they will stick them in front of the tv to shut them up rather than actually doing something with them.

And finally, one more:

http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2013/01/a-case-for-shaming-obese-people-tastefully/267446/

“A Case for Shaming Obese People, Tastefully”.  This is one of those crazy articles that says that there is nothing wrong with shaming fat people and making them feel terrible about themselves in order to make them lose weight.

 

Okay, so here is where I’m going with all of this.  What is the deal with all of these studies focusing on obesity?  Is there not other more important things to study than the fact that people are fat?  I know that it has become an epidemic.  I know it’s unhealthy.  But why are they doing a study on fat moms and tv?  Or fat people and car accidents?  I have never once seen a positive article about fat people.  Why can’t they funnel all of this time and money into finding something that will actually help?  Something like how to make healthy food more affordable?  Or how to better support obese people in order to help them make healthier choices?  Why do we live in a world where people feel like the way to make people lose weight and become more healthy is to make them feel so bad about themselves that they want to just hide from the world?  You don’t know what is going on with those people, why they are fat.  I just don’t understand what is wrong with today’s society, why they think that that is the way to fix things.  Whatever, people.  Let’s get constructive.  There is a problem, so let’s fix it, not do stupid, unrelated studies ad nauseam.  Seriously.

I’m fat so my cat will be too?

Hey guys!  So, a few days ago, I came across an article on Yahoo.com that made me laugh because it was so utterly ridiculous.  The link is here:

http://shine.yahoo.com/pets/cat-copying-habits-including-overeating-study-says-214600048.html

According to the article, if you are overweight and own a cat, it is probable that your cat will also be fat.  Their rationale:  cats are smart and will mimic your behaviors.  AKA, all fatasses must be constantly raiding the fridge all day every day, which makes your cat want to go eat all day every day too.  Firstly, I’ve had multiple cats, and I agree, they are very smart.  Secondly, my cats were usually by my side the majority of the time I was home.  Thirdly, even though I was fat, my cats were not.  This is the stupidest study I’ve ever heard of and is just another way that people will discriminate and hate on us fatties.  I mean, people already assume that if you are fat and you have fat kids that it’s automatically your fault that they’re fat (which may be true in some cases, but certainly not all), and now they are saying that if you are fat and you have fat animals, it’s also your fault?!  Good Lord.  Will this hatemongering ever end?!  Whatever people.  That’s all I have to say about that.

“Fat People Shouldn’t” #17

Hey guys!  So, it’s been about a bajillion years since I did a new “Fat People Shouldn’t” post, (well, actually, it’s been 24 days), so I figured that everyone’s eyes have healed enough since last time to enjoy another.  Am I right?  OF COURSE I’M RIGHT!  So here we go!

 

Now, you know that everyone likes to flaunt what they’ve got, right?  I know I do!  I mean, you’ve seen me in skin-tight camo spandex, and we all know that shit was hot.  So you know, when spring rolls into summer, it’s hot and we are all sweating, we all wanna get our sexy on with a pretty little two piece, showing off our sexy bod to all our friends.  This guy is no different!  But you know, if you’re gonna get drunk and slip into something a little sexy, you better make sure you’ve got a friend to keep an eye on those “nip slips”.  I know Tara Reid, Janet Jackson, and more recently, Nicki Minaj, have all let their junk hang out, but let’s face it, if we all start doing it, it won’t be so special when a celeb’s boob falls out on the red carpet.  So with that said, tuck that titty in, buddy!  Nice star, by the way, but if it’s a pastie, you put in the wrong place, but I guess that’s what being drunk does for you.  Call Lil Kim, she might be able to help you out!
