Obesity Victimology

A 300-pound, White Castle-eating guy just wants to sit in a normal-sized chair like a “normal person” with his abnormally obese body. He can’t, so he is suing White Castle for not accommodating his fat ass. The religion of victimology gains another voice.

Martin Kessman, 64, filed a lawsuit against the fast-food giant last week in Manhattan federal court, claiming that the uncomfortable booths violate the civil rights of fat people.

…The Americans with Disabilities Act is “applicable — not only to me, but to pregnant women and to handicapped people,” according to Kessman, who is suing for bigger chairs and unspecified damages. “I just want to sit down like a normal person.”

    Is Mr. Kessman going to sue Fruit-of-the-Loom because he can’t see his scrotum?

    At some point the armrests are gonna be so far apart, the rest of us won’t be able to reach them and we’ll be the abnormal ones.

    “I just want to sit down like a normal person.” Having an ass two or three times wider than normal is not “normal,” you idiot.

    What next – sue clothing manufacturers for making sizes smaller than huge?

    Okay everbody, let’s see a raise of hands from everyone that’s stopped at a White Castle drive thru late at night after the bars close for a sack of “sliders” and an order of onion chips. Yep, me too, I think it was 1985.

    given that fast food tends to pile on the pounds, it would make good business sense for White Castle to provide seating suitable for large people.
    businesses aren’t obligated to accommodate everyone, though, imagine how ridiculous it would be if I went into Armani and claimed my human rights were being infringed because their clothes didn’t fit me !

    Notice how this man has “normalized” his 300-pound body, instead of using his “discomfort” as a motivation to end up getting rid of all that fat.  Which means that he will keep on getting bigger, until he becomes one of those people who need to be moved out of their bed with a forklift.  So, will he be suing “White Castle” for not providing him a forklift so that he can be transported to their restaurant and eat there “like a normal person”?

    Re: Tom Osborne’s comment:

    What the heck. Tom – if the guy is around 300 pounds, he might as well go for the record. Then he can sue practically everyone for failing to provide forklift access for these “plus size” people. Perhaps in the future, plumbing fixture manufacturers will have to provide plus sized toilets for people with triple size backsides.

    The rapid growth of obesity is easy to understand. Life standards have been improved significantly. We are all enjoying a fantastic life. We eat what we want, we spend time in front of a TV all day, etc. That’s why we get overweight. So to lose weight, I try to combine both good diet and hard exercises.
    Last month I had problems with sleeping and weight so I decided to join a water aerobics class. I lost 2.1 kgs and got the peace in my mind back. If you like, you can track my journey to success here: water aerobics routines. Give me comments so that we can share experience.
