"Fat" Is Not "Bad"

Society tends to bring down people who are fat. Newspapers quote studies with frightening figures of how many obese people die out of heart attacks, various types of cancers, and yes, even car accidents due to clumsy movements!

Are these studies true or are they "sponsored" by dieting companies to take a slice of the "Hey I hate being fat" economic pie? I am not saying that being fat is good, what I am saying is that just accept them for who they are. It's not like they have killed someone or burn your car. Some of them are simply suffering from some metabolism problems, where energy stored in their body is not metabolised normally like the others. It's not like they pressed the "Fat" button when they came to this world. So why penalise them for something that they have no fault in?

Discrimination against obese people starts from small. They call you "fatso", refuse to be in the same soccer team as you, and offer you sweet snacks out of "goodwill". Then when you grow up, jobs seem harder to secure than cleaning the lawn. Certain jobs shake their heads when they see any fat applicants. And that's not all. When you grow old, your family doctor nags at your deteriorating health condition, the clogged arteries, and the fact that you have three more months to live. Such a life is truly sad.

Isn't there at least something good in being fat?

Well, here's a short clip that speaks on the advantage of being fat. Now you can be free from the guilt of snacking in-between meals.

Don't cry for "fatso's" help next time when you are kidnapped.

Yup, it sure is Singaporean. The language in it is a mixture of Hokkien and Chinese.
