Lolling so hard at Advance Fat Acceptance. This can't be real life? No wonder America is in the state it is in.

18 pages over this? Good grief. By the way Barkley is a "fat guy" too you know. He made a joke, stop being so sensitive.

Yes. I had a chuckle at that as well. Must be a Southern thing like fried chicken and waffles. Which is probably served at the group meetings...

THAT is how it should be, I don't care if it's not the 1970s anymore, joking like that is just fine & dandy with me. We think joking is "bullying." What a bunch of crock. Like the one person said, teasing is NOT bullying (neither is joking), the term has become diluted.

Can't take a joke? Like Charles Barkley says, turn off the freaking TV.
Those jokes are OK with you, but they're only going in one direction.

More confirmation that fat people are subhuman.

What if a fat celeb (black/white or any race) came back with "tell that ni**er to shut up"?

I never said subhuman. We all have fetishes, peccadilloes, and emotional crutches.

I don't know why anyone would be happy with being fat. Why should people stop and accept the fact that they are fat? Fat acceptance? You have got to be kidding me. I don't care what anyone says here, no one really believes that it is ok to be overweight.

I don't see a single show called the biggest winner where the person that gains the most weight wins. Weight watchers is not a place where people go to see how much weight that they can gain. We have a problem and it is not accepting that people are fat. We need to accept the fact that people have a problem. We need to accept the fact that people consume too much stuff that starts with F. They get an F grade for that as well,

F ructose

F atty foods

F ried food

F lower as in baked goods

All these foods get an F grade.

F to the milk industry as well. A Doctor told me that cows milk is desighned to fatten up baby cows. We should not drink it. Statistically 3/4 of the population can not even process the milk.

Fat acceptance? We should never ever accept being fat.

But who are you to decide what look or shape we should or should not accept?

Are you one of the parents that feel morally righteous by encouraging your child to pick on the fat kids? Making their life a little more miserable and getting tons of laughs will just motivate them to lose weight, right?

Does anyone really believe that if Barkley made a statement saying "I apologize to all the fat women in San Antonio" it would make anyone feel better?

If Charles Barkley owned a team and for years ran the team like a slum lord NBA Owner, then I would be more upset.

The race of his wife is relevant?
