Being tormented, verbally abused and bullied not only by complete strangers but those you care for is NOT acceptable and anyone who thinks doing that is need to have their heads checked. Everyone is different and someone’s weight is none of your concern.
If you were to sneak a little bit of cocaine into someones drink without them noticing, and this continued everyday for weeks or even months, would they develop an addiction to cocaine? The same could be said about things like sugar, sodium, and fat. Food companies purposely use science, and psychology to make the perfect mix of addictive food in order to make more money. It's not rocket science... its greedy, billions dollar companies at it again.
i mean.. idk about over there. but if anything it seems the opposite over here in the states. you have shows where the main characters are over weight, lots of plus size/bbw models, and tons of people who support them.
im on the fence about the whole movement. i dont judge ones personality or their quality of a human they are based on their weight. and i dont discourage them. but i wish it wouldnt come off as offensive if you encourage them to lose weight. because at the end of the day we WANT you amazing humans who have so much courage to go through what you do every day... to be alone side us for our entire lives... we dont want to hear you died at 38 because you had massive heartattack.. ALL of which could have been avoided if you had more control, got distracted outside of home and literally just enjoy life .
i pray for these people
That gay guy Sam is also fat. Sure he's "skinny", but you can see that he has a high body fat percentage when they show him without a shirt on. Skinny-fat is not healthy or attractive either so idk what he's going on about lol
seriously let's take the *Emotion out* then look at it these people are a drain on society doesn't matter if they are nice friendly people they are making life choices that effect the society and that isn't acceptable and they want to be able to effect the society but tell the society to STFU well no not going to happen you either assimilate into the society properly or your going to be a outcast same for the animal kingdom as it is the human kingdom fit in or f#$@ off.
I don't think fat shaming is good but having an unhealthy bmi is not good. Yes some people cannot help it but working hard to be healthier is a challenge to not only obese but people who suffer from other conditions or diseases. Being obese is not a disease but it can be avoided. You don't have to be super skinny, just have a healthy bmi.
It's not healthy to be overweight, plain and simple. It's also not healthy to be underweight, like I am. I, honest to god, can only do ten push ups before I need a break, that's pathetic compared to alot of people. But the thing is, I want to improve myself, everyone does! We are always trying to make ourselves better in one way or another, so to anyone out there who is unsatisfied with how they look or perform, don't beat yourself up, you can do it if you have the willpower required to push yourself.
The world should not accommodate for fat people.There is a reason everything is sized the way it is.Its becouse a human body should not look that way,they cant expect everyone to please them with bigger clothing,bigger seats etc.They are the problem not the society,do they realize they can solve almost everything by losing the weight?
Wow I had no idea people in Britain are so low class, what a crappy culture, calling people names in public. I was really fat at one point and in 32 years of my life I have never been called fat or any other name in public, and have never witnessed it done to anyone else.
People spitting on these guys and calling them names is discrimination. Not having a bunch of accessible alternatives like elevators, wider seats, bigger clothes, that's not discrimination. All those things cost money. All the public stuff costs money and those businesses or the city have to pay to make those changes. Not the individual. Most companies barely pay a living wage and you think they'll spend money accomadating your weight? Come on.
If I was the parents of those kids or pple making fun of him I wud be ashamed. Those who make fun of pple r very sad and empty. Skinny pple operate like they can never get extra weight on. Very small minds and very very stupid.
Ok, 2 things about the Scottish guy Alex. #1 why do people get their regular ol first name tatted on themselves? I understand gettin a nickname tatted on yourself, I've got mine on myself, or even your last name I get. #2 when he said he worked at a supermarket I was like OMG I bet they're empty boxes hidden everywhere. And I liked how the old lady at the fat camp was able to slip in callin one of them fatty, that was slick as hell lol. GO BRONCOS!! SB50 CHAMPS!!
Being fat is one huge life of discomfort. I used to be morbidly obese and lost 181 pounds two years ago. I was t always fat. But having three kids and over indulging, being inactive and bam over 330 pounds. 🤦🏾♀️ when I was fat, I remember distinctly thatI was always constantly uncomfortable. At any given moment I just felt like a prisoner in my own body.
Uncomfortable due to pain, how I felt about myself, what I thought people thought about me, uncomfortable in public because I felt I took up too much space and made everyone else unconfortabke. Uncomfortable in social situations, at work because I had to overcompensate so people wouldn’t think I was lazy, uncomfortable in a restaurant, in public spaces worried about uncomfortable chairs, booths, Will I break it? What kind of life is that?.? Geez now I can do what I want and I NEVER have to worry at 5ft 7 and 150 pounds, about ever breaking anything. I can just be. I don’t take up extra space, I don’t break chairs, I don’t worry about buying two seats, nail salon massage chair weight limits, doctors appointment. You just gotta take charge of your life and love yourself enough to want a fulfilling life. Now I can contribute to taking care of my kids and my loving hubby. I’m less than half the woman I used to be. And good riddance to the fat.🙋🏾♀️🙋🏾♀️💯💯
Interesting. If I bought new shoes and a large amount of people made fun of them I dont think id buy or wear them again. Now if these people are fine with being fat and dont care about being called names then there is no issue. I have a problem with them getting made about people calling them fat and not wanting to change that.
Right! The bloke right at the beginning in the gym, I quote: "a full fat coke, why not put the coke down......". Folks who believe themselves entitled to judge others should perhaps do a little research about ingredients before uttering stupid comments on a documentary. What a sad society we live in!
That fat lady debating the website owner is so dumb - "what gives people the right to judge?" - Seriously? We don't need someones permission to judge, we all have the right to formulate our own opinions on other people, and that includes who we do and don't find physically attractive. The website is obviously catering to the majority. Nobody is arguing that there aren't people out there who do find obese people attractive (any porn site proves this with their "BBW" section) but this website is only interested in what the majority of people consider physically attractive.
It's also funny how they all claim to not care about this website and the concept of physical beauty, yet they all seem pretty worked up over it.
Believe me I feel for these people as genetics and metabolic rate play a huge factor. Howevor what is it you expect from Airline company's?! You want them to just give you a second seat for free because your overweight? They can't just magically make larger seats. The planes are designed that way.
Coming from the person who is suffered abuse their entire life I'm 6 feet and I'm 400 pounds it's not right some people have no idea the struggles that obese people go through every day sometimes it's very hard to try to help yourself when people keep just putting you down
I agree with you also food is addictive! I weighed the worst 260 just eating McDonald's everything food made me feel comfortable but guess what the love for boxing made me lose 70 pounds because I did boxing before so it wasn't that easy jumping back on it but you can do it
I always thought the British were kinder, I really thought you all were more polite than America. Many Americans are nasty rude and many don't care about others feelings and it's only gotten worse since simpletons elected the lunatic we are forced to call our President. He is full of hate and has divided this country so his supporters act as if they now have a license to spew venomous hate. I would love to move to Europe or Australia.
I am a female myself but I just can’t get how women even if fat can get a partner easily while fat men can’t ! They have to work ten times harder in order to get a girlfriend! what the heck? where is equality here? 🤔
Regardless, at the end of the day they’re still human beings. Is it unhealthy to be overweight/obese/underweight/anorexic? Absolutely. However: do people have the right to shame, harass, and/or make unsolicited comments towards strangers about their body? Absolutely not. Stop using health as an excuse be intrusive and disrespectful.
"Its not ok to be racist or sexist but people can get away with being mean to people who are over weight" ??? Not a good comparison, race and gender are not something that can be changed. Its been a problem throughout all of history. Being obesity CAN be changed and is the INDIVIDUALS FAULT. Obesity isnt healthy, although making of someone/taking pictures of them is not ok.
I am a disabled girl with polio on one leg.. and i have started gaining weight when i was 11 due to lack of mobility and reached upto 81 kgs at age 33... and struggled for almost till 25 yrs .. i m now 35 and i have lost 25 kgs in last one year after dieting but i still remember when i was fat n went for a shopping they were not interested in showing me clothes and treating like me like i m nt imp at all ....while now I cn wear trendy clothes so their behavior has changed a whole lot....telling u truth, it was nt my disability which had made my life challenging but it was my weight who had made my life disaster...now that bad dream is over after suffering it from 25 yrs...bt life of obese people is really tough i cn totally understand that.
remember when people used to take personal responsibility? if you want to remain fat, then you deal with the consequences. how narcissistic do you have to be in order to force society to change to protect your pwecious wittle feewings? im a smoker, but i dont deny how its killing me, nor do i demand people who hate second hand smoke to just deal with it and keep quiet. ridiculous.
Britain should not have to “cope” with fat people. Fat people should have to cope with not eating so damn much. The fact that the one guy can’t walk up a flight of stairs without sounding like he’s going to die of wheezing is ridiculous.
I am plus size myself. Watching this shows me that, no, we are not being discriminated against when we can't sit proper on a train, plane, getting into the loo or sitting in a chair. Naturally we are not suppose to be that size. I think discrimination comes in when someone is being ridiculed for a situation with their person that they have absolutely no control over. Being rude to someone for their weight is sad & won't change anytime soon.
