I am extremely prejudicial towards obese people. I don't point, laugh, and call names, but they make me want to vomit.
I don't even know if it's being lazy. It's worse than that. These people have no pride and zero self-respect. They aspire to nothing more than a yummy bag of Cheetohs or a fucking gallon of chocolate ice cream and American Idol. I don't think you should qualify as a human being at that point.
What ever happened to standards? When did fat and stupid become disabled and special? Why do we praise fathers that take care of their families instead of punishing and ridiculing the ones that don't? Where did our personal responsibility go?
Why do we lower our expectations so even the most feeble effort is acceptable? When did it become entertaining to witness the worst of humanity? Do we do it to make us feel better about our overwhelming mediocrity? What ever happened to aspiring to something better? What happened to shooting for the stars? What happened to the REAL F-word: FAILURE? Why are we afraid to use it?
Some people are just not good enough. They are not up to the personal standards that every citizen in this country should hold. Lowering these standards to accept everyone is dragging the red, white, and blue into the muck.
I'm fairly certain that most everyone at T-Nation aspires to something above and beyond the status quo, whether it be a better body, a 500 bench, a 4.4 40, a doctorate, or even the presidency. We have to remember, that it is not that we are that much better than everyone else, just as the absence of a tumor does not imply perfect health. We are what is good and right with this country. We are what the status quo SHOULD be. Effort should be rewarded, and the lack thereof shouldn't be enough to survive.
