Doctors beware! Activist wants HRC to make “fat-shaming” ILLEGAL

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

I was never blessed with the grey matter required to become a medical doctor but being one in Canada might become a lot trickier if Jill Andrew, co-founder of “Body Confidence Canada Awards” and co-creator of the fashion blog “Fat in the City”, gets her way.

Andrew recently met with the Ontario Human Rights Commissioner to discuss possible changes to the Human Rights Code that would make it illegal to discriminate against a person due to their weight, size, or body shape.

And, like so many other social justice causes, race has become part of the equation. The root of the fat-shaming problem would appear to be so-called “white privilege.”

She’s right that no one should be mocked for their body size but she goes too far when she enlists the Human Rights Commission to make fat-shaming illegal.

Her definition of “fat-shaming” would include a doctor suggesting diet and exercise to improve an overweight person’s health. Isn’t that just good medical advice? But, I guess it’s better to be buried in a plus-size coffin than have one’s feelings hurt.

Look, I’m fat. The only reason I’m not circus-fat is I force myself to go to the gym. If my doctor suggested that I diet and exercise to lose weight, I wouldn’t collapse over a “fat-shaming” incident, rather I’d thank her for having my back.

In Andrew’s world, fat is a bad word and being fat should be enshrined as a basic human right. If she gets her way, Canadian doctors better pay heed: Next time Fat Pat or Large Marge comes into the examination room, don’t offer weight-loss advice lest you find a Human Rights Commissioner knocking on your door.

This just in: In Canada, one in four adults and one in ten children are clinically obese.

Shhhhh!

Stocky does not mean out of shape, because stocky often means working muscle. Body shape is based upon the muscle and skeletal systems. People are usually attracted to an athletic, in shape partner regardless of body form.

Jill Andrew, on the other hand, is just a lazy, fat broad excusing herself.

And she blamed it on whitey’s prosperous ways

Bubble wrapped at birth, indoctrinated throughout their formative years, euthanized when considered feeble. Seems the socialists have covered all of the bases.

Bwahahahahahahahaha! What a maroon, what a gullabull!

People will find ways around this, but that’s a good thing. Otherwise there would be quite a few obese people getting splattered on construction sites and drowning from falling off fishing boats

I wish someone would have jammed that water bottle down her yap. Ever since the shaming of saying Merry Christmas was foisted upon us, the PC direction that the western world has taken has become far more moronic than reasonable. The absurdity of most of what Ive seen with the HRC has been a frivolous waste of time. Ezzra could testify to that. I guess every white christian should start badgering the HRC and complaining about discrimination against them, because that seems to be the demographic that gets the least support. Now if there are credible cases that maybe should be looked at on merit, I for one will always be skeptical about anything they look at just because of how things have transpired over the past several years. What might be better would be to put Junior in front of a military tribunal and have a look at possible treason. The refugee? time bomb is ticking!

You would think that a country with seemingly a well educated population would be intelligent enough to see that this twat Jill Andrew is nothing but a fat glory seeker who as probably insulted because someone saw her and called a spade a spade.
Gees, I’ve been called everything under the sun at one time or another but I don’t feel I need to resort to the HRC for satisfaction.
Anyway, the HRC is noting but a club of bleeding hearted liberals who think in their God awful stupidity that they represent every Canadian.

Trying to make laws based on hurt feelings is ridiculous. The HRC should never have been implemented, because that’s where the hurt feelings of certain races are shoved down our throats, at a cost. What a scam! Nobody has the right not to be offended.

Peter Netterville; Oh sure Peter, keep dragging common sense into everything :-)
But you’re quite correct, although I was referring to our population in the aggregate sense.
Not to worry though, those inverted wrinkles that you describe are being somewhat smoothed out by the immigration strategy of our so-called prime minister, to make our wealthy country poorer and our country’s typical family size larger.

“Calories consumed MINUS Calories Burned = FAT Building. Yuze fat cause you eat too much!!!”

What’s it like living in a world while having such simplistic thoughts.

Alas, Horatio, there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

i.e. Try expanding your thoughts to something greater than the binary you display now.

Calling someone fat shouldn’t be illegal (where would that legal line of thinking ever end), but it can be very rude, hurtful and un-called for.

But the central issue with obesity is that many people treat it as a repulsive “problem,” when over-weight is just as much a “symptom” of many other serious and hard to resolve personal and physical problems. The one-second diagnosis (or personality judgment) given by too many doctors and self righteous acquaintances, that the “fat” person eats too much or is lazy, many times just contributes to the perceived problem. Over-weight itself is a relative concept and may be a genetic characteristic that others measure against current fashion standards or their own personal preferences and biases.

A question that should be answered is why do others have to point out, publicly or even privately to the over-weight person that he or she has a physical characteristic that those of us who are not lazy or gluttonous find distasteful? Do you share such condescending, personal observations and advice with others who have a noticeable physical deformity, a speech impediment, a nervous disorder or other feature that doesn’t meet your own perfection?

As an overweight person I can say without even knowing you that I eat less than you, and only those foods that are healthy (no processed foods, many vegies, chicken breast, fish, etc.). It is not always the amount, it is most often lack of activity. But some, not me, have medical issues as well which can exacerbate the issue.

Problem is, George, the population increase needs to happen in the wealthier countries where is excess food is but wealthier nations tend to drop in children per family. Yet poorer nations have more children per family even though they cannot afford it. I am not sure why the inverse of what you would think it should be.

This is because Jill Andrew is a beached whale!!!

Listen up Jill Andrew – go get some duct tape and tape your mouth shut – then you won’t be able to stuff your cake hole anymore.

Canada the joke nation run by a handful of marxists – we taxpayers pay for fat pigs like Jill Andrew.

There are now more obese people in our world than there are hungry people.
In other words, our world currently has too much food.
In order to improve the aggregate health of the world’s population we require a much needed increase in our planet’s population.
Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Useless Nations to admit that.
