Fat biased; not weight biased, the new term of reference. I am guilty. I cannot get away from the fact that, except in the rarest of cases, fat people eat more and do less than the rest of us. I do not think that is laudable. No one but they themselves put all that extra food in their mouths, whether compulsively or not. If I start to gain a little weight, I do more, eat less and get more sleep. Many substitute food for sleep and then are too tired for physical activity. It is a known relationship.

And talk about a cop out, fat people are now hoping for "a society-wide reformation that may help to absolve them of personal responsibility for their weight." And talk about being irrational, those who think they are stigmatized for being fat, actually eat more because of it according to new research. Personal responsibility and good sense are the whole issue. There were no fat people in German and Japanese prisoner of war camps. Food was too scarce.

A whole quasi medical industry has grown up to pander to the sensibilities of fat people, take their money and tell them they can't help it and are just fine as they are. Yuck, I say.

About:
Kimball Corson: I am a 75 year old solo sailor, by choice. However, I did take on a personable, but high maintenance female kitten, now a full grown cat, named KiKiPoo when she is sweet, or KatKatPo after she has just killed something like a bird or bat. [...]
Extra:
Although I was a lawyer and practiced law with good success for thirty years, creating significant new law, I never really believed in the law, the politics of law or in the over reaching self-interest of most lawyers I met. Too much exposure to Nietzsche and other good and seriously thoughtful [...]
