Is being over weight a moral failure?
no, i think you dont understand my logic. the way you use try to draw similarities to gays and obese people is false when being gay is innate whereas being overweight isnt(in some cases) BIIIIG difference. i am saying that being overweight is in our control(in some cases) ! we can choose wether or not they want to be overweight or slim though diet and exercise. gay people cannot choose wether they want to be gay or not , they are born this way! people are not born overweight. do you understand?

People are born gay, people are not born with weight issues (in some cases yes as this can come from genetics). People who are gay cannot help who they are - Over weight people can. While you say that obesity can come from mental disorders or physiology , an additional point can come from this. Mental disorders = only some people have Whereas the physiology of humans = everybody has inherited. When you said' physiology disorders' i believe you were pertaining to the problems that come with our basic physiology as human beings.. Problems such as that deep rooted want/ need for sugars and fats and so on that is hardwired in our brain from hundreds and thousand of years of evolution etc. its a basic survival mechanism we all inherit to survive. It is now in our society where food sources are no longer scarce and food is of plenty we have to now fight back the urges our deeply inherited ancestral physiology to be able sustain a healthy and happy life. To me , this is morality- fighting back greed and gluttony and letting our will power flourish. ultimately ,most people the 'majority' will all have troubles trying to maintain a healthy weight. i write this as you imply through your writings that obesity is no ones fault and it all stems back to 'mental disorders' or 'physiological disorders' This is just absurd. To add my homeland of New Zealand coming in a close second with the highest , with many of my family members having passed away from the health problems associated with obesity. This is is not a foreign concept to me as you think. I am thin because i work hard and go to the gym. i do drink and smoke on occasion i am no angel nor am i the apathetic girl who fails to empathise with other

well what if i told you, that encouraging obese people to be happy with their weight only encourages them to be unhealthy... ultimately , sometimes being nice can do more harm than good.

in a sense obesity is a moral weakness. i dont think it should be classes the same as any mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar where it is out of the individuals control. obesity is in the individuals control, it is them who puts too much foo into their mouths no one else, i would like to refrain from saying moral failure as many people have highlighted whatmorality actually is , i guess i could restate my claims and say obesity is for the weak willed instead
