I appreciate the honest response. I am glad to hear you still love your family, even if you don't agree with their weight/lifestyle.

well, sounds fair, just wanna make a few points

1: depending on your threshold of what being too much fat "overweight" is more healthy than "underweight". i personally set the bar or "not good for you" if the person can't run, without his/her belly or manboobs bouncing so much it's uncomfortable

2: hypertension is a plethora of things, but it's VERY dangerous indeed. your dad can be fat, as long as he either:

a: takes blood vessel relaxing meds

b: does cardio

c: lives a stressfree life

from your description, i would guess he does none of those. regardless.

"I love him, he is my dad" is worse than fat logic

I don't know how true this post is, but I do remember that r/fatlogic and r/fatpeoplehate polls before they were banned showed that a surprising amount of subscribers and responders were actually overweight.Self-hatred or actual loathing of fellow fat people excusing their lifestyles? We'll never know.

One of the best ways to get in shape is to get angry. That could be a big part of it.

Yes, perhaps it's a pyramid effect, where they pick on fatter people - below them, in an effort to rise up the Pyramid of Pecking Order.

It's true. I just got a 65,000 cheque from Starbucks yesterday. Gotta keep them eating.

Not sure, but I did notice a trend of FPH commenters being disabled which I speculate has to do with how they enjoy ragging on fat people might simply be them trying to feel better about their own marred bodies. That, and there's also a significant population of former-fatties on FPH probably enjoying the place for similar reasons. It's all a holier-than-thou shitfest.

I would think fats are really hard for disabled people to take. They see someone with a capable functioning body who chooses to disable themselves.
I think that would piss me off too, if I was disabled.

I was a big buy not too long ago. I've lost all my weight and am at a good bmi ratio. But my mid section and under my armpits are scarred from stretchmarks. Thats a constant reminder of where I was and where I never want to be again.

I'd think a guy with no legs in a wheelchair (for example) would be pissed about some fatass "needing" a wheelchair somehow.

Verified FPH member here. I have an older brother who isn't morbidly obese, but hes fat as fuck. I am one of 5 and the other 4 of us are all skinny. We CONSTANTLY give him shit about it, but he just takes it in stride and sees it as a joke.

Good for him. If youre gonna disreguard your health, you might as well have a good sense of humor about it. Ive got a friend that smokes a little over a pack a day, and all his buddies give him shit. Hes a good sport, and cracks jokes right back like "next time I come over I'll be sure 'hock a few' to patch the cracks in your raggity-ass driveway."

I hope he cuts back soon though, hes really starting to cough like he inhales rubber cement...

My mother is fat and I regularly bring up diet and exercise with her.

There is a sub rule which states "No fat sympathy", and that's fine within the confines of the sub, that doesn't mean that I must hate her personally. I encourage her to lose weight and be more active and she is making slow but noticeable progress towards a healthier lifestyle.

I suspect I'll get downvoted to shit by FPH subscribers just for asking an honest question, but whatever. So be it. Some people can dish criticism, but can't take it.

You currently have 5 down votes.
While /v/FatPeopleHate does contain its fair share of fanatics, it's foundation is an objective standard of health. The key word there is objective, I'll wager you'd be hard pressed to find a FPH subscriber who thinks they are as special or necessary to humanity as anyone in the HAES movement.

I must say that I am pleasantly surprised by the lack of downvotes. I'm glad most people can handle a simple question. I just wanted to satiate my own curiosity, and maybe initiate some discussion, if people were into it.

My childhood best friend is a big fat ass but still a good guy. We were in line for a roller coaster at a theme park and they had those test seats out front due to the number of fat asses who would wait in line for 3 hours only to be rejected. Some fat woman in front of us tried it and was too big. We all privately laughed and joked.

My friend tried it when we got up there and he couldn't fit either. He was shocked that he had gotten so big. We gave him endless shit over it. It didn't help in the long run as he married a beastly woman. They're both over 300lbs and have fat kids. I've tried being honest about the food thing, but it's not worth ending a friendship over.

after all the cancer and lost body parts and replaced body parts and lost experiences and watching their brains retard and their personalities wither into food addiction spiral to death nothingnesses,

i can safely assure you that everyone leaves them as fast as possible, and those that stay give up. as a sane goat, i continue to shitlord, but with no false understanding of the reality that the family i loved died long ago.
