Wait, really? They actually think that is obese?"

Thanx! I wouldn't call that cute anime girl "Obese", though. Super voluptuous, yes...bariactric case, no.
That said, thankies for the compliment.
I suspect this is one of those "Troll" sites in the tradition of Maddox...Make a website where you say some of the stupidest, most offensive things just get a rise outta people. Chances are, this guy's named Todd Smith who's a nice guy who doesn't believe a darn thing he says & is just being weird.

This IS a fundie belief stemming from the Christian concept of gluttony. In certain oddball sects you still find an entire family shunning their one fat daughter for being immorally fat and obviously a sinful glutton and thus ruining God's temple. In mainstream culture we forget the Bible part but are still convinced of the sin part. When you see a picture of an very skinny model seductively eating fattening food it's tapping into this idea of perversion. Chocolate is marketed as a dark sin, darker chocolate = more immoral.

I agree with the first person. What he said doesn't really have anything to do with Islam and doesn't sound different from anything else negative people have said about overweight people.

I know this will be damaging to my reputation, but I don't care.
I want to say two things:
- I HATE those that say that being fat is genetic. I really dislike them. Why? Because that is not true. I mean, not true to everyone who claims it is. Actually about 1 in 100.000 people is fatter because of genetics (while a larger amount is fat because of hormonal problems, normally temporary (thus mainly teen years and menopause)), while 8 out of 10 girls (guys are less likely to use that) will say theirs is genetic. Hell, even if it is genetic, work out harder! Eat less (the ideal amount is ~1200 cal for men) and better!
I mean, damn! I was obese, almost morbid obese, at 107 kg. And what I did? I lost 32-33 kg in ~13 months. And I am still losing weight. Hell, I didn't even change my diet, in fact I am eating MORE than before!
Stop excusing yourself!
- Bullying. I know how hard it is. I was bullied for most of my life thus far. Still, by giving up, you are just showing them that they are right! YOU are allowing them to bully you! You HAVE the power to make them shut up and be ashamed of how they treated you! Stop caring about what these idiot think, and show people how much you are worth! Don't rise a white flag, but stand up and fight with all your soul!
That said, this guy should really get stomped to death by an elephant.

Thanks. You're welcome!

This has got to be a poe.
12/24/2011 9:38:47 PM
Lol funny Poe is funny.
12/24/2011 10:47:38 PM
Fantastically disgusting. Anti-feminists like this should just shove themselves up their own intolerant assholes and come out when they accept that gender and weight doesn't determine personhood.

Maybe related to Christianity in a round about way. But "Jihad" and "Allahu akbar" suggests Muslim.
Rat of Steel,
Hmm. Some people.
It is true that Genetics do not account for all of it. In fact, if it is genetic, then you are more likely to be healthier at a higher weight (I'd assume).
However, some people simply are healthier at a higher weight (though I think at the "morbidly obese" level is unlikely).
Bullying is still nasty and mean and shouldn't be done. Standing up to bullies or even ignoring them can be difficult. But ultimately? None of their business. I encourage ignoring the fools.

While I am tired of this tolerance of obesity in America (and chuckled at some of this), I don't see the point in going out of your way to be a jerk.
12/24/2011 11:15:41 PM
I second Huh's comment
12/24/2011 11:24:48 PM
And you're perfectly fit and trimmed, are you?
I go to the gym twice a week, I ride a bike to work every day, I hardly ever eat candy and I love vegetables. I'm still too large for my own good.
My brother-in-law eats like a horse or two, never work out and is still very slim.
It's not as easy as just a diet, dearie.

His attitude is, of course, encouraged by film and television double standards which allow male actors to become overweight and older (John Travolta, John Goodman, etc.) and still work, while women have to be stick thin and much younger to get parts, leading a lot of men (some that I know) to have the attitude that women don't deserve to be seen or even breathe if they don't look like the standard the media has set for them, while men are ok in any form.

So, there's some fat girl who won't have you, eh?
12/25/2011 2:07:47 AM
If you want to address obesity, i doubt that being a supreme asshole to fat people is going to help. Seriously, after reading this vile piece of utter shit i want to punch you in the dick.
12/25/2011 3:16:34 AM
What a sociopath.
Or poe, of course... but an overly tasteless poe it is then.
12/25/2011 3:44:13 AM
surely racist rather than fundie?
12/25/2011 4:16:34 AM
You are in serious need of Oprah sitting on your face until you suffocate.
12/25/2011 4:28:01 AM
I'm pretty sure that the page is satirical. I mean, read the declaration. It's definitely not serious.
12/25/2011 4:56:44 AM
fuck off Abdul.
12/25/2011 6:29:24 AM
Because, as everyone knows, fat people aren't really people. (/sarcasm, and I want to break my own fingers for typing that)
12/25/2011 8:22:16 AM
This has to be a Poe, if not it's a douche bag. Either way, fuck him.
12/25/2011 11:29:12 AM
Apparently I'm in the minority here, but I LOLed. This is so obviously a wiseass trolling for outrage that it doesn't even rise to the level of Poe's Law.
Tasteless? Hell yeah, but so is South Park and I laugh at that too.
