Obesity is not healthy, and should not be exalted as something our ladies should inspire to be. My view has nothing to do with appearances, because I have seen quite a few sisters who can carry their weight well. My main worry is that our ladies' obesity rates contribute to their higher illness rates in various diseases that obesity is considered a contributing factor. By trying to claim the problem as a positive, we are not dealing with a problem that causes major health issues among our women.
I did not see his picture, so I do not have a clue what he displayed that was disrespectful. The manner in which he wrote his post could have been far more diplomatic and less hyperbolic, but the general idea of the post rings true.
In what way did I air any issues that I had with brothers or sisters? Nothing I stated was derogatory or accusatory? I find nothing in my post that is a negative generalization. Please point it out to me so that I can see where I may have misspoke?I get your point, and if you want to talk about health and such, you're welcome to do so in the Health Forum.
This thread is in the Spirituality / Religion Forum because Brother Perfection thinks on this different than most.
Since I'm aware of his positioning, and willing to allow him this space ... please respect it.
Additionally, this community is not the place to air your issues with Sisters or Brothers.
There are a bunch of Sisters that could be considered overweight.
Just as there are a bunch of Brothers that could be considered something negative.
This is not the place for negative generalizations of us.
There are plenty of places on the Internet for that, if that's what you want.
