Obesity Epidemic Is Result of Bad Connotation
Apparently Prof. Amy Farrell is upset that people are being called obese. She says that…
“People can be thin and unhealthy, and people can be fat and unhealthy.” (Colbert Nation – min. 4:48 of the video)
Bravo professor! What school did you go to? I want to send my kids there too.
This is an absolute revelation! There is more than one reason why someone can be unhealthy. Who knew?!
“I like the word ‘fat’ actually…[the word obese] has a very negative connotation. So there are many of us, who are scholars now, who are saying ‘let’s take it out and strip it out of some of its negative connotations’.” (Colbert Nation – min. 5:48 of the video)
This gives me an idea, let’s also call burglars ‘chattel reassignment advocates’, or call idiot professors ‘visionaries’. Soon we’ll have a society with no negative connotations and avoid hurting people’s feelings.
