Do us all a favor and shove your head up your ass and drown on your own crap… to put it crudely. People are applauding her article… about fat people eating themselves to death and facing the consequences by piling on the pounds and demonising people who are applauding fat people because they won’t just sit in the corner away from society and hide.
Now you listen here rent-a-gob Hopkins… some fat people are fat because of an underlying cause they were born with… or due to an illness. Or they get fat because of their medication they have to take… in order to stop them from DYING or BEING IN PAIN.
How dare you, basically say that fat people shouldn’t be allowed to be on TV… I pay my licence fee like you so don’t tell me who I can and can’t watch on my own TV.
And if the TV and media only showed size 0 people and fatness was frowned upon how many teenagers and adults will end up with eating disorders because they are a little chubby? How many people will die… because they have become bulimic, anorexic or both because they are frightened to gain a couple of pounds… and their heart can’t cope with the strain no longer? All because fat people are frowned upon and a disgrace to society.
I agree there are some people who can’t help themselves and keep away from the fridge, but your article doesn’t make them feel any better about themselves, does it? In fact, to put it mildly, it will send them scurrying back to the fridge for another peace of chocolate cake, because you have made their low-esteem just sink to a new lower depth.
Fat people need education, help and fat people do definitely not need bigots and bullies, like you, wading into them making them feel ten times worse than they already do feel. When there are bullies like you around, to be perfectly honest, these people don’t stand a chance… you will knock their self-confidence with every breath you take and word you write.
Answer me this Katie Hopkins what about the person who relies on a medication that is renowned for causing weight gain? Should they be tucked away in the corner and hidden away from view and never get a chance to be on TV because they have an illness and the medication they take to combat that illness piles on the pounds? Or should they not take the medication and possibly die? Or should they refuse to take the medication to stop the pain they have to live with every day?
You have lumped all fat people in your article into one category… over indulging in food causes you to be fat. You have not thought about the child that was born with an illness and has to take medication for the rest of their life and forever until their final breath will be over-weight. Or the adult that develops an illness, like PMR (Polymyalgia Rheumatica), and has to take steroids in order to be out of pain. Steroids that cause them to balloon up…. don’t you think they look at themselves in the mirror and wish they were back to the weight they used to be? Don’t you think they hate their own reflection and their self- esteem is at an all time low? Tell me what do they do? Do they take the medication to stop the pain or do they suffer to stay slim?
Well thank you Katie Hopkins, you have made us feel a whole lot worse. I was smaller than you were once upon a time… but medication has caused me to gain weight… medication I need to take to stop being in pain and to stop me from having a stroke.
People in pain, can’t exercise… and believe me we wish we were able to exercise. People with PMR have every large muscle in their body aching. And believe me, if we hit the gym like you expect us to do… we’d be laid up in bed for a week. And only when you have an illness like PMR, do you really know what pain is at times.
So rent-a-gob not all fat people are fat because we raid the fridge… some fat people are fat because of illness and through medication… well done Hopkins you really have made us feel great today…. NOT.
Education is the way forward… children being taught was is healthy and what is not …. an income that is enough so that families can afford to eat healthy foods and they don’t have to rely on cheap foods that are full of carbohydrates. Haven’t you noticed, Katie dear, that all healthy foods are a whole lot more expensive than processed foods?
When you get people, like yourself, that are bigots and bullies, through your articles you do not combat obesity, you make the problem more profound.
Obesity and its underlying causes can be a vicious circle…. you eat and gain weight… articles like yours condemn you… which then makes you feel like eating more and turning to comfort foods.
All you’ve done today with your article… is make the problem worse. Well done… hope you are proud of yourself. Just for your information and to educate you on some of the factors of obesity caused through illness…
- Hypothyroidism. This is a condition where the thyroid gland, located in the neck, produces too little thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormone regulates our metabolism. So too little hormone slows the metabolism and often causes weight gain. If your doctor suspects thyroid disease as a cause of your obesity, he or she may perform blood tests to check your hormone levels.
- Cushing’s syndrome. This condition results when the adrenal glands (located on top of each kidney) produce an excess amount of a steroid hormone called cortisol. This leads to a build-up of fat in characteristic sites such as the face, upper back, and abdomen.
- Depression. Some people with depression overeat, which can lead to obesity.
Suck on that Hopkins…
