@pazer: you do not seem to understand what ad hominem means. your attempt to dismiss my argument by trying to label me as having 'issues` fits the bill exactly.
However, I will concede, on reflection, that my first comment was inelegantly written. The main thrust of my position is that people are too willing to try to push the blame on their own inadequacies on some sort evil, cultural pressure (ie, fat shaming or the all encompassing `patriarchy`) rather than doing something about it - which I see as taking the easy option.

@som-tam, "ad hominem instead of a counter argument? I didn't realise a quickly written comment would be so difficult for the intellectuals of this site to deal with."
In order for it to be an Ad Hominem attack, the basis for me to reject your comment has to be irrelevant. Making comments like "pathetic cause to hide your own shame about your gluttony" and "if you were healthy, you`d probably write a pissy little cartoon..." are relevant in the context of what I said.
In other words, your over-reaction to this cartoon leads me to believe you might be suffering from Psychological projection

I know a man with a hyperthyroid condition and he eats like a pig. He eats 2 whoppers everyday for lunch. Also a huge breakfast and dinner plus eats cookies and candy all the time and he is skinny as a rail and the laziest slug I've ever seen. He hates fat people and shames them constantly.

I always find these things a bit of a cop out. Same way you can be happy with your body whatever size you are, and there will be people out there who find you attractive. You cannot tell other people they need to find you beautiful.
Like with the friend-zoning crap people have no obligation to find you attractive and want to go out with you.
