And these kind of comments are why I took back my welcome. I don't like rude ppl and you showed us all your true colors in the other forums you posted. You will definitely get this girl as a fan anymore!
Obesity while unhealthy and often times preventable is not rude! You are Rude! You can be direct and to the point without being inflamatory and agressive. People take offence to the way you word things not what you are talking about. I read the forum you are talking about and honestly you come off sounding like you think you know everything and that if anyone disagrees with you then they are wrong. I had an ex in that kind of pain once. Notice I said EX!
very good question! and I would like to answer it: some parents don't know what to do with passive-aggresive hyper and demanding personalities (male or female) and so they just let them do whatever they want while they're out working to try to give their precious baby everything they want!
Hey - You have taken this a bit too far, man. It is true that people who ENABLE others to get fat by feeding them huge amounts of the wrong kinds of food are ignorant, at the very least. HOWEVER - some personalities demand to be fed and won't easily be appeased unless they get what they want - like you, for instance - demanding attention by saying preposterous things. you are maybe just young and callous, that is easy to forgive. However, a little introspection on your part - find out why (other than hub traffic) you really want all this kind of attention.
Were you a fat little boy? who needed something and kept eating and eating to fill the hole that still hasn't been filled? because, if that's it - I can totally understand. But aggravating people will never fill that hole up for you!
You are probably going to turn into a very funny man, once you stop thinking only of instant gratification!
05Jamie Perhaps I have made an error. I went to your profile page and determined that I was mistaken in my earlier assesment of you.
You ar not rude, or at least not only rude you are also immature, and spiteful.
05Jamie on HubPages Hi Im Jamie apparently the most contravercial person on this as everyone else is too sympathetic towards some things which could be avoided.....such as obesity in children for example also there are two gay men on this site who are attracted to me MISCHA & PEARLDIVER who you may see commenting sarcasticly on everything i do ...THIS IS BECAUSE THEY ARE JELOUS AND ARE NOT AT MY LEVEL FOR ANYTHING possibly attracted to me wouldnt balme them I mean they are only human sorry guys I dont swing that way
For everyone else I will save you the trouble of looking yourselves This is exactly what is written on his profile.
I detect a little insecurity within yourself or else you would not be posting all of these posts mocking children etc. Build up your self-esteem work on yourself and focus just like UW said and you will be fine.
See, I didn't disagree with your topic as I feel parents make a lot of excuses like ones posted on there. But, it was hard for me to defend ya when you really didn't give good reasons for your argument.
Yes, you were to the point but when people start pressing you for your theories on it, give it to them. Otherwise you look foolish and if you have an opinion you hardly thought through.
You also were very inconsiderate towards the awesome people here just because they didn't share the same opinion with you.
What gets up my nose is the attitude. Calling Misha gay for example. Misha is enough of a man and does not fear gays, so the OP is only expressing his own fears. All the flack seems to be aimed at anyone who is not like the OP.
Some tried to explain why the post was offensive, and what can be done to help, but to just blame is mindless. There are so many medical problems associated with obesity that it is a bit like poking fun at cancer victims, or asthma sufferers. Gutless, narrow minded and without any merit.
Thank you CW, it was felt, maybe that helps. I have no obesity in my family anywhere thanks to something in our genes. I feel fortunate, and feel sufficient empathy with overweight people to have kept informed.
two of my best friends were obiesed and thankfully due to their desires to lose weight they have lost A LOT of weight. I am very proud of them and I still can't believe someone would be so rude and attack ppl just because they are over weight. It's disgusting...
I agree. It's sad. Really, weight discrimination is a problem. You can rip apart verbally and mentally a fat person still while race, sexuality and gender discrimination is taboo and punishable. Why not weight? I think the insecurities caused by ridicule against fat people in a way hinder them getting healthier.
being serious for a moment - When I started to school (I was 5) there was a little boy who was very, very, fat in my class. I asked my mom about him and she said he had "gland problems" (which is what they used to always say about fat children) But at lunch time every day I noticed all the rest of us went to the cafeteria for a good hot lunch and he took out his "man-sized" lunch pail full of two huge sandwiches, a can of soda, cookies, chips, and usually some other sweet treat like a Hostess cupcake. There was enough food in that lunch box for 3 or 4 kids our size! I told my mom about him and said "if he has an illness, how come they let him eat all that stuff you won't let me have?" and she said "probably they give him what he wants because he won't live very long!" for real - the picture of him eating all that has never left my mind!
Apparently he has received his first ban-- so he's taken down the comments in his first profile and posed some new insults to HP and unnamed "wankers"-- he probably does not know the lyrical definition of that. I guess there's no way to flag profile comments... or?
I dunno, I pretty much decided to keep my nose out of this whole "Obese Children" thing. I wonder where that went haha... I was a bigger child, But I also was going to specialists all over California to try and figure out what was wrong. Supposedly, I am to develop rheumatoid arthritis at a very young age.
This whole subject makes me pretty uneasy I don't talk about it much... I just got tired of sitting back and watching.
Someone has to speak up for the overweight kids O: Lol....
. I will say this, with all the bad stuff, on occasion people do some incredible things for other people. It's amazing...almost overwhelming, the generosities some people demonstrate. For those people, I am most grateful for...
On the whole, people in this village of HP are really good folk. Seems they always show up supporting newbies, trying to bring rational balance to hot topics and a lot more.
Then there is the neighbor who shows up with a chip on his/her shoulder and know which way the world runs, and it's just that way. Despite having no practical experience in the matter.
I begged (really, I *begged*) my teenage daughter to NEVER grow up because when I am old and frail, I would so desperately need to know the answers to everything, since she had them at her disposal with so much ease and arrogance.
However, she grew up. Now she has so many questions she can't find answers because it just creates more questions. I told her she is grounded till she's 99. She smiled and hugged me and said, "I love you, you pest." And I said, "For a dumb chick who used to have all the answers, I'm so very, very proud of you."
She is a wonderful human being.
It will take time for know-it-alls to learn what they must, but inevitably, they will.
No worries here.
Blatva, you are perfect the way you are. Despite any condition of your body, you are exactly who you need to be, and if there is anyone in this little village who would sleight you in any way, just remember, you have plenty of friends who outnumber them.
I don't mind being called a wanker! Do you? I mean its so very true! ESPECIALLY on boring days like today I become a huge wanker! awful wonderful that y'all are sticking up for those who are called wankers! the world wank is positively erotic, I think! well, that's enuf of that, I guess. what next? a wanking party?
Hey Tantrum...yea it is true some stuff can't be said on here...shoot I got banned for saying something I know was wrong but was too pissed I said it anyways. lol bad me hehe bad you hehe bad us hehehe

Have you encountered a not-so-friendly hubber? How did you deal with him/her?I know there are a lot of awesome people here. But there are still times when we encounter hubbers who are a bit rude. What's your experience?
As writers, we have received our share of dissenting comments on our hubs which is well and good. However, there are comments which are completely rude and disrespectful. Such comments include personal attacks on the hub author. While disagreement is fine and acceptable, being...
Not Replying to comments ....Is it rude not to?Does it upset anyone else that when you leave comments on someones hub and they reply to almost all of the comments. But they never reply to your comments no matter how many hubs of theirs you comment on?
Have you ever had this happen? I added a poll to help prove my side. I hope I can trust reader not to go in and click the poll for their side of the argument a bunch.Hub referring to is: http://hubpages.com/hub/Helping-Your-Fo … -Avoid-Gas
