Before you judge me harshly for judging fatties harshly
It is scientifically proven that having an aversion to the sight of an obese person is quite natural.
It’s an in-built genetic trait, or more accurately ‘instinct’ that is designed to keep you and your future children healthy.
The reason some of us a repulsed by fatties is the same reason we are repulsed by the smell of rotting meat or the sight of an open wound – it helps us survive.

If fat people in tight clothing irk you, read on!
This is what a human body should look like:
(In case we have forgotten because we’re falling into a disturbing trend of accepting obesity and actually teaching people to learn how to be happy with their fat bodies)
NOT LIKE THIS!
There are several reasons fatties in tights irk me and several aspects which irk me in particular:
- People who make their kids fat (should be punished as any child abuser would be punished).
- People who force their fatness on us by wearing skin tight clothes out in public.
- People who make airline flights more expensive because of their obesity.
- People who lobby for any kind of changes which might effect the rest of us, because of their obesity.
I’m not sorry that you forgot cheeburgers and milkshakes make you fat!
I don’t deserve having your fat arse thrust in my face at the traffic lights!
It’s DISGUSTING! It’s unhealthy and it’s disrespectful to your body!
I’ve often suspected fat people are dumb. Turns out, I might be right!
Obese People Have ‘Severe Brain Degeneration’
By LiveScience Staff
A new study finds obese people have 8 percent less brain tissue than normal-weight individuals. Their brains look 16 years older than the brains of lean individuals, researchers said today.
Those classified as overweight have 4 percent less brain tissue and their brains appear to have aged prematurely by 8 years.
The results, based on brain scans of 94 people in their 70s, represent “severe brain degeneration,” said Paul Thompson, senior author of the study and a UCLA professor of neurology.
“That’s a big loss of tissue and it depletes your cognitive reserves, putting you at much greater risk of Alzheimer’s and other diseases that attack the brain,” said Thompson. “But you can greatly reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s, if you can eat healthily and keep your weight under control.”
The findings are detailed in the online edition of the journal Human Brain Mapping.
Obesity packs many negative health effects, including increased risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and some cancers. It’s also been shown to reduce sexual activity.
More than 300 million worldwide are now classified as obese, according to the World Health Organization. Another billion are overweight. The main cause, experts say: bad diet, including an increased reliance on highly processed foods.
Obese people had lost brain tissue in the frontal and temporal lobes, areas of the brain critical for planning and memory, and in the anterior cingulate gyrus (attention and executive functions), hippocampus (long-term memory) and basal ganglia (movement), the researchers said in a statement today. Overweight people showed brain loss in the basal ganglia, the corona radiata, white matter comprised of axons, and the parietal lobe (sensory lobe).
“The brains of obese people looked 16 years older than the brains of those who were lean, and in overweight people looked 8 years older,” Thompson said.
Obesity is measured by body mass index (BMI), defined as the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters. A BMI over 25 is defined as overweight, and a BMI of over 30 as obese.
The research was funded by the National Institute on Aging, National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, National Center for Research Resources, and the American Heart Association.
