For those not familiar with the series, MTV follows around somebody and documents their life, usually a few people between 18-25 that share some style of life.
Theyve done two of them about “I want the perfect body” that i really enjoyed, one of them focused on Kevin Nee, right before he turned pro at 19.
Another talked about people on steroids, it wasnt done all that great, one of the 3 people was a guy who wanted to get his biceps up to 14 inches so he could impress guys at gay clubs, then he got “roid rage” and later became addicted to steroids and depressed… i think it was mostly because he was an idiot.
Well the most recent one ive seen left me completely dumbfounded.
It was about people who are happy being fat.
heres the breakdown of characters.
1.Male, late 20/early30’s. very obese,finds other gay men online who are interested in having care free sex with a freak like himself.
2.Female,18-20, starting what you could basically call a “fat ass appreciation group” at her college, and then gets pissed off because nobody in their right mind will join, and the board at her college things its a horrible idea. Also, they make a big deal of her working the courage up to ask out her “normal” sized male friend, and when they cue the dramatic music, he basically says “sure, why not” just not to make her look like an idiot on national television. Maybe if she had less then 4 chins he would have been more excited for that date to the local Ryans.
3.Female, late teens, early twenties. This girls takes the soon to eaten cake. She didnt even have trouble with her weight, and then as a way to INCREASE her confidence, she gained like 75 pounds…and she was not tall. She found that this helped her with men, and greatly improved her life. I dont know if it has anything to do with the fact that she was African American, but this girl was honest to God morbidly obese, how that could make you more confident, or more attractive to the AVERAGE male is beyond me. Even better, she went to the doctor because her family and close friends were getting pissed that she was basically eating herself to an early grave, so she decided she was gonna go get a physical and prove that a 75 pound weight gain in a year hadnt hurt her health.
So of course she finds out that 19 she has super high blood pressure, and is now a krispy creme away from being diabetic, where she had no sign of being early diabetic before. But she leaves the situation telling the Doc…“thanks for giving me something to think about”
Don’t these people know that obesity is killing people of all ages in this country at an alarming rate? That they are increasing their chance of damn near every disease by 10x just by lovingly stuffing their fat distorted faces.
Im sitting there, judging the hell out of these people. i mean, really detesting these people for the choices they have made. They dont realize that life is a gift, and they basically giving theirs away for what? The many joys of junk food ?
Ive noticed lately that the more and more that fitness and proper diet become a part of my life, im slowly starting to be disgusted in people that know what they are doing to themselves, but choose to disregard all reason, and slowly kill themselves.
Be it junk food, binge drinking, illegal drugs that turn you into a waste on society. Im losing all respect for these people.
And i feel like im completely in the right.
I like to think that im pretty tolerant of the choices people make…religion,sexual preference, whatever it may be, ive always said, if they arent hurting anybody, then let people live their life.
But these people are hurting somebody, they are killing themselves, and on their way to the grave they are starting their children down a road of the same habits.
I have a good friend who is overweight, and i did have a to bite my tongue in the last few months, because if i didnt i would say things that would really hurt his feelings, so when he came to me asking for advice on diet and training, i could not have been happier. Hes a great guy, and he will only improve his life, and most likely his character by getting healthier.
So there, rant over, but i have to to admit that im not as tolerant as I once thought i was.
