Fewer overweight Americans have been trying to lose weight in recent years, and researchers wonder if fat acceptance could be among the reasons.
The trend found in a new study occurred at the same time obesity rates climbed.
“Socially accepted normal body weight is shifting toward heavier weight. As more people around us are getting heavier, we simply believe we are fine, and no need to do anything with it,” said lead author Dr. Jian Zhang, a public health researcher at Georgia Southern University. – AP
Throwing in the towel, waving the white flag, quitting… And I’m not surprised. As Americans we’ve been the punching bag of the world when it comes to fat shamming for far too long. And for years we’ve tried like hell to get healthier, only to keep failing. At some point we need to just embrace our fat culture. Fuck it, we’re fat and we’re beautiful. To hell with those Euro assholes and their pretentious pinky up, no ass, no gut, no fun, lifestyle!
A nation can only fight for so long until it’s time to concede. It’s not our fault that our lavish lifestyle and economy provides a McDonald’s, Wing Shop, Burger joint, or pizza shop on every corner of our land. It’s an unfair circumstance that we are faced with.
And as my good buddy says, once you’re locked into a serious relationship who really gives a shit anymore? Fat people are still getting laid and that’s all that matters. Unless fat people stop fucking, the food smashing will continue. No more sex is the only thing capable of getting us in shape… And it doesn’t help that most people claim fat sex is the best kind of sex. (So I’ve been told)
Doesn’t it make sense that we all get fat anyway? A totally level playing field where personality and jokes are the only thing that matter.
