Oh this is awesome. This first page of comments are great but seeing some of the previous comments (mean and unintelligent), it seems many people missed the meaning. She is not saying, "We are all fat just because of our genes!" She is saying that overeating cannot be treated like other addictions or compulsions because as humans we can never stop eating or we die. So yes, the girl who pulls out all her hair, or a crack addict, or a cutter could be cured with therapy and just stopping the behavior. But an overeater can never stop eating, so it should be treated differently.
Also, if you have read any of the recent health studies or fat acceptance blogs you will see what we are trying to convince the public of is that being fat is no less healthy than being thin. A new study shows that the best weight is at the BMI of 25 or 26, which according to the bullshit scale (which doesn't account for age by the way) is overweight. So "professionals" were wrong, being at a 18 or 19 BMI is not healthiest for you.
Just because I am fat doesn't mean I am unhappy, or lazy, or an overeater, or unhealthy, and most importantly I deserve just as many rights and respect as thin people.
If you feel you need to lose weight just to fit into society, perhaps you should try changing society instead.
Persons who don't like or respect fat people or treat them like lesser humans, I see them the same way I see racists and homophobics.
My boyfriend and his friends made this years ago. If you have eight minutes and fifty-one seconds, watch it. Especially because the Holidays are coming, it will really get you in the mood.
Also, my boyfriend did the music. If you can't tell, they didn't add the music during editing, but had Brad standing there behind the camera playing his guitar. So awesomely funny.
If you have another chance, watch Zomburrito also.
P.S. If you don't like swearing, don't watch this. There are a few f*bombs in there.

A guy from Canada used the internet to trade a single red paper clip for a house. It took 16 trades, including a handmade doorknob, a beer keg, a snow mobile, and an evening with Alice Cooper, but he received a house and has been living there for a year.
