Hmm but maybe you haven't experienced the other side of the coin. I'm pretty thin and have been thin all my life, and I get so much unnecessary flack for it. I've never had a meal where someone hasn't commented about how much I eat. Because I'm thin even if I eat a substantial amount it is presumed that the quantity is less.i generally take two helpings but most ppl will presume that I'm going take just one helping and however much I've put. On my plate for that is all that. I'm going to eat for the whole meal. I feel like I have to justify myself whenever mealtime arrives because ppl will just make comments without even thinking. i get comments like you eat like a bird, are you on a diet, why do you eat less don't you know it's unhealthy, are you trying to compete with supermodels? And you can take it once in a while and just be like hahaha no I eat well ull see! But when u have to hahah heehee about people's **** up assumptions on a daily basis it gets really tiring. Some people may even say these things good naturedly but most ppl are snide with their comments. Why should I be subjected to snide behavior every day because I'm thin? It's the same way on both sides believe me.

*I generally take two helpings but most people will presume that I'm going to take just that first helping of food and however much I've put on my plate for that, is all that I'm going to eat for the whole meal.

So many freaking unnecessary full stops! In that same sentence in the above comment! (Silly iPad)

I've seen plenty of people mock overweight people for not dieting, saying that they "can't take care of themselves", but I never see anyone say that about thin people, when in reality it is entirely the same. And if a thin person takes steps to maintain a healthy weight, people say "oh, that's good, they're getting back on track". However if they see an obese person taking a jog or working out at the gym, they point and laugh and mock. And what about all of the disgusted views towards obese people, especially women? As if having extra fat means they don't bathe (in reality, having more to wash means they probably spend more time in the shower. Just a thought).

People judge others. That is just how it is.

I don't like that this is one-sided. EVERYONE should be allowed to feel good about themselves without someone making comments. It's always the more 'unforunate' that get the sympathy: the fat person's feelings>the thin person's feelings; the unattractive person's feelings>the attractive person's feelings.

I see people have the mindset of "well that person knows they're pretty so they shouldn't get upset by [this comment]"

So, no one should look down on others, but people will anyway.

Yeah I think u just explained it really well. I couldn't articulate it but that is what I also disagreed with . The one sided argument.

yeah sometimes it's unnecessary to refer to people as black or white ,I mean u could just say this guy.... but then I know that we just tend to do that automaticly for organisational description purposes to do with ur minds ! I think we all do that and it's not meant to be negetive ! It's just natural to sort of describe the world around us while talking, like you know next thing we know, some one will say "yeah this girl was standing in line ahead of me ..." "oh mygod why do you have to say girl? Say person! you sexist! "

This wouldn't completely get rid of at home suicide anyway. A suicidal person could decide that they don't want to go through months of therapy, they want to die now. And quite possibly they hate their family so they don't want a ceremony either. Therefore, they resort to committing suicide on there own. The purpose of suicide is to end your life NOW, right? So I don't understand why someone would extend their life further in a suicide facility. Having an age limitation would not prevent young suicides either, there are always accessible methods. However, I do see how the booths could help prevent certain suicides, and closure for families could help. Also, I think the word "booth" makes it sound too casual and almost like a carnival booth where you just walk up and they give you a gun to shoot yourself with.

ok first of all I'm not trying to win an argument.I really am not, sorry to come across like that.
Secondly I was under the impression you were more interested in winning the argument rather than stating your different opinion.
Thirdly Everybody disagreeing does not have the same reason for disagreeing. Infact everybody agreeing seems to have the same reason. That it's your body and you should be able to do what you want with it because it's your right to make that decision for yourself. And I get what you mean but I do not agree.

And nobody makes anybody stay. The people who want to go will go . Nobody can make them stay, with or without assisted suicide. And it's not like I view suicide as murder or wrong. I just disagree with giving up entirely and losing all hope , that is all.
Plus I feel that somethings are bigger than us and the universe certainly is. Let the universe decide when it's time for one to move on...and yeah sometimes I believe that the right thing is to let things happen not make them happen.
