    Fun post!! I knew there were anti-gay organizations out there, but I didn't know there were anti-fat people reproduction peeps out there. :-? I now know what I'm doing for breakfast...I'm going to go get a couple of CFA breakfast combos and eat them while I try to impregnate my wife. \:D/
    Anti-obesity crowd is huge. And the people who are proud to be fat are also huge (hehe)

    They are easy to spot. They tend to be the ones who use the made-up Monroe quote about a size zero (though size zero, and that sizing system, did not exist when she was alive) and they post pictures of attractive women who weigh 150lbs but they weight over 200 and are disgusting looking. 

    Obesity is America's biggest health issue and one of biggest cost issues. Linked to over 60 diseases, approx 20% of healthcare cost in America is related to obesity, etc. Can go on for a long time with how drastic the impact obesity has in America. If I could restrict one crowd of people from reproducing it would be obese people. 
    Hmmm... I'd say your argument and problem is more likely with the huge food companies that produce all the food with high fructose corn syrup, added this, "enriched" that... Funny how that the healthiest and most natural of foods are priced out of the average family's food budget. yet for $10 that same family can get a sack full of stuff to eat McD's... I guess you are okay with companies like Monsanto etc. that are pushing for GMOs and things like that. How do "good Christians" feel about companies like that are altering the way God created food? I guess they are okay with it as long as its eaten by groups and people they don't approve of...

    Fat people reproducing is isn't what's driving the obesity issue... And that belief is just as bigoted as some of the others expressed during the course of this thread.
    I'd guess you are not good at guessing. Just based on how stupid you come across in this post.

    I am highly against Monsanto and companies like them. Also, you sound like you need education on exactly GMO food is. It is not always a bad thing but it can be. 

    I buy almost all my produce from local farmers markets. I am not a Christian. 

    And there is a correlation between poverty and obesity. Some of that is the cost of healthy food versus unhealthy food. But it is foolish to assume that is the only issue. Obesity is seen across all income levels and is growing at an incredibly fast rate, especially amongst children. 20 years ago not a single state had an obesity rate above 15%. Today 41 states have obesity rate over 41%. That has more to do with just McDonalds. 

    The factors are many, wide, and deep. My biggest issue with obesity is the people who are aware and justify it. They are all adults who know exercise is good yet they avoid it. They know certain foods are bad yet they eat it. They are a burden, financially, on this country at an astronomical rate. They excuse and justify their obesity and act is if the problem is not them. 

    And obese people tend to raise obese kids because exercise and proper eating habits are not taught. If a person, barring major economical disadvantage, wanted to eat healthy they could. The average American certainly can afford to eat better than $10 worth of food at McDonalds and it is ignorant of true root cause to think otherwise. 
    Really... So I guess for you the simple solution is not having them reproduce?

    I don't assume anything...

    Read this

    You make several assumptions, then in next post say you don't assume anything. Got it. 

    And there is no simple solution. You missed the part where I said the factors for obesity are many, wide, and deep. 


    What exactly am I assuming?

    While true that the factors for obesity are numerous; your initial statements pertained to restricting the reproduction of obese people as a way to end the problem of obesity; you made no mention in your original argument of any of the many factors contributing to obesity that you so eloquently illuminated for us in later posts...  
    The first post of mine you quoted I listed obesity being tied to over 60 diseases and 20% of healthcare cost. I also did not say they should not reproduce, just that if I could restrict, which does not mean eliminate, one group it would be obese people. 

    Your post in response to that is where you had your assumptions. Including my religious stance, my thoughts of Monsanto, my lack of knowledge on quality food in relation to economical status, and that it would be ok as long it was groups I did not approve of.
