Must not portray ANYONE as fat

It looks like the fat acceptance people are not accepting fat!

Disney reopened a controversial attraction at its Orlando theme-park on Friday after it was removed over claims it mocked fat children.

Habit Heroes an interactive educational program at Epcot was launched last February with the aim of helping kids live more healthily.

Its animated characters depicting a rotund fairy called Snacker; an exercise averse character called Lead Bottom and a greedy baddy known as The Glutton were battled by happy and fit action figures called Will Power and Callie Stenics when the attraction first opened.

But for many the message went too far and complaints flooded in that the exhibit stigmatized overweight children.

The National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance said in a statement: 'We're appalled to learn that Disney, a traditional hallmark of childhood happiness and joy, has fallen under the shadow of negativity and discrimination.

Dr. Yoni Freedhoff, an assistant professor of family medicine, told the Calgary Herald, 'It's so dumbfounding it's unreal. I just can't believe somebody out there thought it was a good idea to pick up where the school bullies left off and shame kids on their vacation.'

The sight was closed after a month but reopened on Friday minus the taunting characters, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

"Political correctness is a far greater threat to our freedom and liberty than is terrorism..."

There's a whole lot of truth in the above quote. Political correctness was intended to replace honesty and truth, and, to a great extent, it has. For those who subscribe to, (or bow to) this nonsense, speaking and thinking freely is no longer acceptable.

Nowhere is this more visible than watching the talking heads of the MSM on TV. And yes, i include the clowns on Fox, who are so squelched by PC that many sound like they have a speech impediment, always fearing they may offend someone or something.

All PC needed to gain a strong foothold in society was weak-minded people, which is why it is so strong in places like Amerika and Britain, to name only two.

This is getting more and more idiotic each day more PC nonsense When this ever going to end?

It was, in large part, precisely that sort of social pressures - e.g., shame and ridicule - which formerly operated to keep the number of overweight children to a minimum. The removal of the traditional social control mechanisms because they're seen as being cruel or bullying has produced at least one generation of children who suffer unnecessary health problems from obesity.

I think sentencing children to a lifetime of health and self esteem issues because we don't want tell them the truth is is a crime. Fat "acceptance"?!! Fat is a result of diet period! Travel to India or China and you will only see fat people in the big cities where they eat western food like McDONALD'S.

It's un-American to be thin (how else will the World identify US citizens when it matters?!).

Bird, the answer to your question is, probably not in our life time.

Why? Becase generally speaking, the American people are weaker, more gullible, more distracted, and dumber now than at any time in our history, which, when you stop and think of all the info they have at their fingertips, is truly incredible. Manipulating them has become so easy for the MSM and the elected lying crooks, that even they find it funny.
