RE: Top 10 Countries Celebrating Female Obesity
Now, we know there are people who are starving to death. Imagine if someone said, "it's good these people are being deprived of food." You'd immediately brand this person as evil and batshit crazy.

That's how I see fattie defenders, I decided today. The defense of obesity is hatred of men, nothing less. They are asking for men to be deprived of romantic, sexual satisfaction. It's like torching a silo full of grain in front of starving Rwandans. They want ugliness to prevail, dissatisfaction to reign.

The next time I hear someone defend fatties, I will respond with "You clearly hate men." They will be baffled and confused, and I will patiently explain. I don't anticipate convincing them, but at least they'll be furious with self-righteousness evil2

All of those countries on the list are in harsh environments where resources are scarce. It's not surprising that they would value heft.

In the United States (circa 1900), the ideal man was overweight. It showed that he had enough wealth that he didn't need to do physical labor. Same with women in the middle ages. Look at paintings from that time period. I'm sure most of us would agree that the women in those paintings are a bit chubby.

In Jamaica it is frowned upon for women to big skinny, so alot of women simply fatten themselves up.

Nope. President Taft was fat, and people had no trouble teasing him about it. Maybe it was less demonized then, but it wasn't ideal either.

RE: Top 10 Countries Celebrating Female Obesity
The obesity rate in Jamaica is nowhere near that high, and is in fact well under half that cited in the article. The listing is completely off base, as the actual peer-reviewed study I just linked will show.

Sorry to sound defensive, but I have to stand up for my country here, as several other Jamaicans did in the comments. They don't belong on this list at all-obesity is in no way promoted there the way it is, say, in black America.

It's interesting the US didn't make the list. I guess obesity is more tolerated than celebrated here.

South Africa and Jamaica are not even close to the Afghan level of human development. They nearly double it, in fact.

Seriously?

You gather a large sample of individuals and measure/test them just as you would anywhere else. Then you record and report the results.

I think Athlone is on the money, it doesn't seem to be any semblence to reality

The article sounds more like a way to inspire fat cows future destinations to eat, pray, love.

Rudebwoy, is the fowl pill actually truth or a myth? I have heard from several independent sources that it is the case. My gut tells me it's truth.
