I was told by my Mom to never make fun of something that a person can’t change. I still think about that every day. Can that person change what bothers me? For example. I never made fun of someone’s nose. Officially they can change it but they were born with that and its what they’ve been given. Ironically I used to have problems with my own nose but as I got older I realized that my nose and everything I have, is what makes me special. Unique. Like a domain. There is nothing more beautiful than unique. Growing up I was pretty good at how I treated others (other than my siblings of course) because of this simple rule. But then it came to weight.
I’m not good. I try and keep it an inside voice but it does bother me when someone eats so much they become an unhealthy weight. By no means do I think its easy to not eat. Every marketing company, ever food supplier, every part of your body is addicted to sugar and calories. It calls day and night. Reducing sugar and caloric intake is crazy difficult. But it’s so necessary. There is a reason that weight is an unprotected class. You can hire, fire, and discriminate on weight according to law. Because it is a choice. A difficult choice, but a choice. We should give everyone the same opportunity except when someones choices have caused them to be at a disadvantage. We should help them overcome and cheer them on to good decisions. Accommodating only leads to more bad choices. I never want to see another person suffer but if they continue to make choices that lead to their disadvantage how can we continue to help? I realize that someone is going to bring up religion here. If a religion is being persecuted then don’t be that religion. It’s much more difficult than that. You’re often born into a religion like you are born into a nationality. It takes years of choices to become obese.
What about people that are born into families where obesity is accepted and promoted through a lifestyle. They don’t get choices? This is difficult and I will readily admit I don’t know where to go with this except to educate youth on the dangers. I never said that this was an easy discrimination 🙂
What bothers me about overweight is we all pay. We pay through the cost of health insurance. The required size of chairs and toilets that accommodate giant people. The demand of giant portions of food has made it difficult for the next generation to avoid the same fate. Obesity is spreading around the world but nobody competes with the United States when it comes to giant people that weren’t giant 30 years ago. The reason COVID has killed so many people here is because our weight and food choices have led to high rates of diabetes which is one of the major underlying conditions that doesn’t dance well with COVID.
So where am I going with this? I’m not sure. Other than if one person reads this and decides to move more and eat less than the 5 minutes I spent ranting will pay off. I’m not saying you should go Vegetarian and definitely not Vegan. Just saying that reducing the portions, watching the packaged snacks and foods, and eliminating the food after dinner, will make every step and breath you take a little bit easier. It will give you more energy to put up the fight against the real things that need a fight. Equality for race and religion. Not civil rights, equal rights.
