Should Fat Americans Be Ashamed? - Page 4

Attached Image QUOTE (Stefflabunny)
With this in mind, I come to this website and see this thread about, "Fat Americans should be ashamed" started by an alias named GOSSIP. How dare you. Are there not fat people in other nations?!? Is it the fact we should be ashamed because we are Americans? By golly, this sure does sound like a form of harassment and bigotry, all started by someone who can't even post under their own name.

Although I appreciate the input from experience as Stefflabunny has done by sharing what she has been through in relation to this Topic there are some things I will like to bring up here, keeping in mind that this is supposed to be a mature level Discussion Forum:

1. There is a warning message for this Thread:

If you know you are easily offended or cannot be constructive about the question of the original Poster then simply move on to a Topic more pleasing to you. This is wiser than replying to say how much you do not like the Topic. There will ALWAYS be some Topic that you do not like.

The original Poster is asking a question. If you disagree then respond with a full "No", fat Americans do not have to be ashamed! Why should you feel that the Topic is singling you out?

2. Being offended is a choice and addressed here: Feeling Offended?

3. I changed the title to reflect a question rather than a statement so it is better understood.

That's not true, there are MANY other people in many nations that are obese, not just the US, I do believe this topic points out the obese people in the US who don't care about other people who are hungry a in need in the world, but I don't think this topic points out all the obese American people.

Should Fat Americans Be Ashamed? News Medical & Diet Health

Basically I agree with what everyone else says about throwing away food. But on a larger note, seriously, why are there even people starving in the world? The amount of food that gets thrown away every day at the restaurant I work in could keep that African child alive for a year (if properly preserved). They don't care about health codes, they'd be so happy for a half molding cheeseburger. Because food means they get to live, one more day at least. Now think about how much food gets thrown away all across America, because someone didn't like the sauce, or something just didn't get sold and is *almost* bad in the freezer. All the buffets that can't refreeze their food that didn't get eaten. There is more than enough food just here in America to sustain the entire world. Anyone who is starving and living in America is a drug addict, or completely mentally incompetent. I know what I'm talking about, I lived homeless for a short time.
