Why do we make excuses for fat people?


More and more the evidence proves that fat people are unhealthy people, and unhealthy people require more healthcare, healthcare which is TYPICALLY, though not always, footed by the taxpayers. So why is it becoming more and more 'okay' to be fat? Is it because the majority of Americans are obese now, and the majority make the most noise?

    This is true. If they don't take the help offered, then what good does it do. The current trend is to shame the super-fit models in popular magazines, because so many people don't fit that mold. One shaming is okay but not the other??
