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).

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 almost had a one night stand once. One time I was with this girl I had met earlier that night and we went back to my place. She saw my ** and well…. I have this slight deformity where my ** has a bunch of tiny legs like a centipede.

She screamed and ran away and after that I never showed it to anyone again.

I think you need to learn math.

Any number less then three is still less then four. The only positive whole numbers less then three are 2 and 1. You need four pieces to win Connect Four. I understand technically it's four, but for the purpose of this post you can pull the stick out of your **** and acknowledge that saying less then three works too.

I understand how frustrated you are from all these replies, but your reoccuring argument cannot be "You guys don't understand anything about suicide". Don't forget, just like everything else, you can have an opinion on suicide. Some people think it's alright, some think it never will be. But you can't tell somebody their opinion is wrong, because it's an opinion. Second of all, don't assume that everybody disagreeing with you has never been suicidal. It's quite possible to be suicidal but at the same time realize suicide isn't the answer.

You're idealizing society. You think that this wouldn't be a lucrative business? You don't think that companies will try to encourage suicidal thoughts to promote their business?

People can be slime-bags who only want money. Even if they were required to have therapists, how do you know they won't find a way to encourage people through media or other ways to want to commit suicide more? You see it every day; make-up companies destroy the self-esteem of girls and so sell them make-up, knowing they can never be as beautiful as the girls on the commercials, because they are fake. The clothing companies showing a standard for the human body that is unachievable for a healthy human, so that they buy their clothes which they hope will make they look better, while having the "side effect" of girls starving themselves? For profit prisons have horrible conditions and have been known to be more abusive toward their prisoners, making it more likely that they will get arrested. On all these terrible things prices tags were placed, so the people who come to gain from them start making it so that people are more likely to suffer from them. Put a price tag on human death, and you get more death.

No! You're just making it too easy. But a lot of people who attempt suicide realize that they want to live, so they call an ambulance or something. It wouldn't be the best way. And that's just like, encouraging them to kill themselves. Why would you EVER want suicide to actually work? That's horrible. I've been suicidal before. If there was a booth like that, I would've killed myself. But now that I look back on it, I'm glad I didn't. To sum it up, it's a crappy idea.

"Hey mom meet me at the suicide booth at 12, I'm gonna kill myself cause I hate life, k?" "K son I'll prepare the funeral."

No just no. This is so wrong on so many levels. It's like you're encouraging people who have suicidal thoughts to just easily kill themselves, and providing an easy way to do so without feeling guilty. And I bet it'll be way worse for the parents to actually watch their child kill themselves and not being able to do anything, then coming home and finding them dead due to suicide. "This is the best way" you say? No it **** isn't, suicide should never be the answer to anything, no matter what you're passing through.

When it's someone I know and love and someone related to me, no I won't just let them **** die when I know I can try my best to make their life become better. I think if a person lost all their limbs and they're still alive, then they're pretty lucky to still be living and shouldn't just waste that chance by killing themselves. And wow no person in the whole world has all these problems (no limbs, deaf blind etc) except if you count Hellen Keller (excluding the limbs problem) and even then she was grateful for what she had. And most of the time, it's not blind people or raped people or people with real problems who want to commit suicide, but those who live in misery and THINK that their life can't get any better, when in fact it can.
