There have been articles in the news lately where obese people are suing airlines for forcing them to purchase an extra seat. There was the Code Pink post on Two Babes that prompted the attention of someone pointing out the “discriminating” factors within the post itself and the comments from some readers.
You know, I have all the sympathy in the world for some people that are obese because of an illness, but I don’t see obesity itself as an “illness.” I see it as a choice.
I’ve reached an age where I must watch my food intake in order to fit into the clothes I have. The main reason I don’t overeat so much anymore is simply because I’m too damn cheap to go out and buy a new wardrobe to cater to my uncontrollable eating habit, which by the way costs more money as well.
So to save money on things like clothes, food, not to mention my overall health, I just don’t eat as much. Why is that such a difficult concept to grasp?
