First, who CARES if Philadelphia has a lot of fat people, what a shallow and trite thing to even be concerned or bothered with when there are SO many issues in Philadelphia that are worthy of being addressed such as crime, how ****ing dirty it is due to rampant and unchecked littering and dumping and the mobs of abandoned cats and fighting pit bulls roaming the streets. Not to mention the class divide, disappearing middle class and absolutely horrifying public education system to be had here.
So given all the REAL issues we could look at and be concerned with... no we look at how fat people are. Many of the aforementioned concern and health trolls have their data completely incorrect... allow me to post a link to a very credible scientific journal that finds obese people on average have the same morbidity with normal weighted people: Above-normal weight alone does not necessarily increase short-term risk of death, U.S. data suggest. so if we toss out the whole health issue as being a real issue... we have to look at the ugly truth. That society detests and dislikes fat people. That fat bigotry and bias exist couched as fat health concern and that bias and bigotry is culturally mandated and subjected in the same way that skin color, hair color and preferred height are culturally subjective indicators for preference and bias. If I had a couple of days I could inundate this thread with study after study that will completely support my claims. But none of that matters, most people would prefer to stay in the Matrix as it were and continue to go, "ew, look fat people" as their junior high school friends taught them.
