It seems the Fat Police are at it again. Being a fat person, isn’t just bad you see. Being the parent of a fat child is bad. Apparently it’s child abuse to have fat children. And if you are abusing your children by ‘making’ them fat then they should be removed from you for their own good.
Never mind that actually fat is mostly genetic or that sometimes a little dietary knowledge can go a long way, or that fat children are quite patently not being neglected by their parents, no, no being fat is so horrific we must remove fat children from their homes in order to protect them.
I really hope this kind of stupid, fucked up and unscientific thinking doesn’t make it into legislation you know. Because this is the kind of fucked up stupid unscientific thinking that will lead to parents accidentally starving their children of essential nutrients, in order to try and keep them thin and prevent their kids being removed from them.
It wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the fact the obesity epidemic is statistically a load of horseshit anyway.
