Why would an adult be this hypocritical?
On hearing that "Dance Moms" star Abby Lee criticized the weight of young reality star, Honey Boo Boo, I couldn't help but laugh. This woman is the epitome of obese, so I would think if she wanted to criticize an overweight person or suggest they get in shape it would be herself. Why do you think an adult would be so blatantly hypocritical?
Beth, I have to say, I went to a food bank once. The people coming in seeking help were turned away or given frozen food. One guy said that he had no oven. All they had was a little electric burner. I said to the director that perhaps they would allow me to voluntarily teach a cooking show. To teach people how to make dried beans from scratch, or dried rice. That type of things goes far and costs very little. She told me that it's not her problem what the people do with the food, she is just obligated to give it to them.
Last year I saw her picture in the paper. She had gained a few hundred pounds. It made me feel terribly sad for her. Poor people struggling that go to the food bank in search of food are turned away or given frozen food they cannot cook. Hmmmm.
When I hear of adults doing this to children, I cringe. There are so many reasons why a child may be overweight. It might be medical. My daughter was 5 pounds at birth. Now she is off the charts for growth. Yet she is extremely healthy. Because she is off the charts, the doctor was concerned, yet he didn't even ask about my biological father who is Italian and over 6 feet tall.
I don't understand hypocritical thinking. I always try to have compassion and understanding for other people. Common sense is lacking in the world today.
The worst thing I can find that she said was she "needs to get in shape. She needs to be at a dance studio. She needs to be training. She needs to work on her turnout." If she wasn't an obese overbearing loudmouth no one would pay any attention, and she knows that so it's obvious she knows what she is doing and purposely said this to get free publicity, lots of free publicity for her show! What better way than to talk about another "star" with great ratings. It may be a turn off to people like you and me who probably would never be a fan of either show because both shows appeal to base human emotions and the type of audience that loves shows like Jerry Springer or Maury Povitch.

Is it possible to re-train an adult dog to use a potty pad indoors when it rains? How?

Why are people so hypocritical?We can criticize others easily, but can not take criticism directed at us. We often judge other and poke fun, but if someone judges us or make fun of us, we get upset. I thought humanity would be stronger than this? What is your opinion?

Why/How do parents let their children get overweight?Granted it's not my place to judge but it bothers me when I see an overweight parent walking with an overweight child. I feel bad for the child. Why and how does a parent allow this?

Would you let your teenager get a prom house at the beach with friends? Why or why not?I live in an area where after prom, teenagers sleep over (co-ed) in a house that an adult rents out for them.

There seems to be such a focus in the forums between homosexuality and religion/god that I am now curious about whether or not gay people can be Christians in the same context as straight people can be Christians?
