Sup my fellow nerds,
Had an amazing weekend here in Monterey, California. The weather here is amazing and there's so much to do. Anyways, I'll make another blog about my amazing weekend with my girlfriend coming here and the sex we had, but that's for my blog...for now I wanna talk about something that ills me.
When I was a the Del Monte Center with my girlfriend, we went to Cold Stone Ice Cream before we went to watch Prometheus, while in line there was a heavier girl holding up the line with ordering many cups of ice cream for her friends, the girls behind her started to make comments about her not needing to buy more than one. The girl looked upset and hurried out after she got her ice cream cups.
The people in our line laughed and didn't think anything less of it. My girlfriend just stayed on my phone reading through the random news and looking at Google Maps to find what else we could do before I had to head back to the base.
Anyways, after that I noticed it happens a lot in this country.
I visit a pretty underground website called Reddit, I can't link it because some of the stuff are NSFW but on there many people talk about this trend of "fat shaming", apparently more than half the US population is "fat, overweight, obese" now and the "skinny, normal, in-shape" say it's bad and go out of their way to shame them.
On the website called Reddit they talk about how only 1% of the fat people are fat due to medical conditions and everyone else is overweight because they are lazy. Then the "anti-fat-shaming" crowd comes in to say that everyone who is fat is due to medical conditions. It's a fascinating fight.
Anyways, as Giant Bomb is the best place to ask about deep social issues, I wanted to know what you guys think of this "fat shaming in America".
How do you people in European countries like UK, Germany, and Canada see the "obesity epidemic" in America?
