I don't think we should necessarily shame people for any addiction but we shouldn't glorify them either. Body positive is one thing but there are people who will claim you can be healthy at any weight, but objectively that isn't true, the more overweight you the more at risk you are for diabetes/heart disease/numerous cancers and so on. The other claim is you can be beautiful and any weight, this is true but it is subjective, many people will find you beautiful if you are overweight and many will not and neither is wrong.

Fat people are fat skinny people are skinny ugly people are ugly and beautiful people are beautiful so are you saying fool for being who are or are you shameful of people telling you who are do you not recognize which one of these categories you stand in do you not realize what category are you standing you cannot seem someone who is proud of who they are we are just finding out that they are not proud of who they are beautiful ugly fat skinny and when they get towed then they get broken and hurt the wrong message is getting put out be proud of who you are what you are and know who you are don't think that you are skinny when you are fat and then someone tells you you're fat and then you feel ashamed know that you are fat and when they call you fat you say I'm yeah exactly of course I see in the mirror your remarks are stupid if you think I don't know that for myself or have people been around you telling you that you're beautiful and skinny and then when someone tells you you're fat you're like wait your mean know the people who didn't tell you this before are mean and you not understanding this makes you stupid not to shame you just to tell you this goes for the beautiful ugly skinny fat everybody so the lesson is be proud of who you are and no one could break you but if you're not proud of who you are then you're shaming yourself

All fine and good, except you can't just stop eating. If you don't eat, you will eventually die. And there are as many ideas about healthy eating as there are people with assholes. Shame has never made someone change long term. Sure, you might be able to make someone make short term changes by shaming them and making them feel horrible about themselves, but it's not sustainable. Humans are, like any other animal, always looking for the thing that makes them feel best. Why else would people do drugs or drink? If you didn't want to feel high or drunk, there's very little reason to do those things (though some alcohol tastes nice, but you likely would not drink enough to get trashed if you just wanted it for the taste). Shame. Doesn't. Work. I have struggled with my weight for the majority of my life. I was a relatively normal weight kid, though I started to gain weight when my parents discouraged me from being active because it "wasn't nice" (I was perceived as a girl then, and per my parents' culture girls are meant to be demure little things that lose weight by rarely eating, and then only eating bird size portions and waiting hand and foot for everyone else around them). I was also abused. My mum, dad, and brother did everything under the sun to me. In the colloquial meaning of the word I wasn't raped, but basically everything up to then. My parents were smart enough to be seen as pillars of the community, make good money, and to never leave marks that didn't fade quickly. No one believed me, no one helped me, so I ended up being 15 and being beaten every day, molested probably a handful of times from 12-16, and no outlet. I was expected to go to school, make straight As, be the perfect child, and say nothing to anyone. So of course I ate. And it wasn't a healthy choice, but it was the only one I had at the time that meant that I could keep some of my humanity. Everyone called me a liar, my parents would watched as my brother molested me at least once, and my parents beat me for making simple mistakes (making too many erasures on my homework as we went over it, not getting good marks on a test, etc.). No one overeats because they feel good. Overeating, like drinking too much, smoking, or any other addictive habit that humans use to forget how shitty their lives are, are not things people do because they have great lives. Shaming someone who already has a shitty life is not going to make them feel better. It's just going to make them want to comfort themselves, and comfort themselves typically with food/drink/drugs. People make good decisions when they love themselves enough to want to look after themselves. Your brain, neurologically, cannot and does not want to sustain a constant state of punishment. We want to feel good. That doesn't mean that overweight and obese people should never be asked to look after their health, of course; for most of the last decade I've been going to counseling and in the last year I got a treatment that has made noticing when I'm overeating and should stop eating so much easier. But I've had a hard time replacing the behaviour. Most psychologists would agree that when trying to end one habit, you should develop another to take its place that's healthier. It's why a lot of smokers gain weight while they're quitting. They can't smoke, so they eat instead. Logically, there's no reason I should want to lose weight and mind my health. I have no friends, no family, and no one that relies on my being around. But I would like to get to the point in my life where I love myself enough that I lose the weight and find a habit that I can turn to when I feel hollow and would normally want to eat. It's hard. I want to do it, but anyone that tells you that it's not hard is lying to you. So I don't begrudge people who don't want to do it, but rather try and do things that validate them as a person. I think it's good to set good examples for your children, but what about the people who aren't children anymore? You say it's utopian to work towards a society that doesn't shame people for the habits they have that are harmful to their health, but I think it's not doing enough to try to at least encourage people to think differently about themselves and others. It's just throwing up your hands and saying "that's the way the world is, just deal with it and maybe slowly things can change". And that attitude doesn't create meaningful change.

I’m sorry about your mom. The issue with fat shaming is that it’s systemic, it primarily befalls the poor and it’s a thing people judge you for right off the bat without knowing how you behave at all. A coke addicted model will be treated respectfully and idolized until some behavior makes them unlikeable (and even then they will be liked). There are fat people who have to deal with thyroid issues. Fat people who work multiple jobs, are caretakers of multiple family members and are being poisoned by intentionally addictive cheap junk food ( easy to access food doesn’t have to be junk - look at Japan ). It’s superficial, classist and unempathetic to judge a person based on looks. period. Does that mean it’s not going to be a thing people do? No. But, I think we should judge able people based on the effects of their actions and intentions- them being fat and PERHAPS unhealthy , because not all fat people are unhealthy, doesn’t hurt anyone, even though it seems like your mom hurt you, and that’s unfortunate- you as her son get to judge her, but society shouldn’t .

Yes, I really like Jim but this was a shitty take - even if he has good intentions. Raising awareness about the health problems that come with being overweight and helping people become healthy. No one will put down drugs because some random asshat calls them a junkie. Trying to hide behind good intentions by calling someone a fat cunt is just wrong.

"who gives a F that a pedophile temple burned to the ground." So true... people were so saddened because it was a beautiful building... but don't think about what terrible acts have been committed. Perhaps it was God himself who burned it down... biblically it wouldn't' be the first time He destroyed a temple.

Okay fat shaming is rude and counter-productive, but is it okay to roast someone for it? Roasting and shaming are very different things. For example, a fat bully in school called me pipsqueak. I responded by saying he’s incredibly obese and will die at the age of 30. In retrospect it seems harsh, but he was an asshole and would have done the same thing to me if we were in inverse positions. That one line took him off his high horse and (hopefully) persuaded him to not be fat. Obviously that’s not how it works, but one can only hope. Man I hated that guy...

@Mark Adams I've got no idea what he says about that: I'd have to watch a video or two... but I think I might share the same unpopular opinion as you! Each subject though is separate: we can (thankfully) share opinions on some matters and disagree on others. That's why I find the whole American thing of Republican vs Democrat ridiculous and out-dated. At long last, in France where I live, we've moved slightly away from the simplist left-right cleavage. Nowhere near enough... but at least people have no more faith in the original major parties and have started voting for parties that combine a bit of both, and there's quite a reasonable proportion of the population voting for more "fringe" parties. So there's hope!

@Balazs Szazi I like that phrase! The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence.... but that's not what science is about: as Richard Dawkins says (more or less anyway) "I can't prove that the Easter Bunny doesn't exist, it's up to you to prove it does" Science is about gaining the maximum evidence possible through experimentation that can be reproduced by anyone else under the same conditions. Nothing is "obvious" in science: it's all been worked out through investigation. I can't argue further with faith though.... it's a dead end argument isn't it? "Well I believe... so it is". I'd call people with faith gullible.... but that's just my belief!

@Balazs Szazi Ok I get the misunderstanding. I'm being very anti catholic because that's what the subject was all about. Catholic church. If I gave the impression of being pro-muslim it's because I'm criticising my countries (past and present). I think religion as a whole is out-dated and shouldn't exist in the modern world (I wouldn't stop people from being religious, but I certainly don't approve of their methods of functioning. Whether it be muslim, hindu, jewish, christian, scientologist, raelian or cargo cult! They're all based on blind faith.

Again there is that very old assumption that the only way people are fat is because they overeat. NO ONE asks about my medical histories or conditions before they try to shame me, make fun of me, give unwanted unsolicited advice. They don't care the my thyroid is shot. That I have Hashimoto's and Pcos. They dont care that my body is estrogen sensitive. AND NEITHER DID MY DOCTORS. They were so focused on the fact I was fat and accusing me of over eating or sneaking food that they put me on Phen Phen at 15 and just a year later learned it strips heart muscle and can kill people as early as their 20's. They put me on BC pills, gave me massively body altering stomach surgery, and always the constant blame of "over eating". None of them listened even after they found I had stage 3 cancer that was producing More estrogen ( which puts on weight), gave me a hysterectomy that put me in menopause (more weight gain)... I, by myself figured out my autoimmune disease was lending to my weight. And as always I am still fat. I always will be. So how about instead of leaning towards shame people either shut the fuck up and let people be happy, or lean towards positive reinforcement which has actually proved to have much better results

if it was as easy as just making a decision not to do those behaviors to feel good or not feel bad lots of people would be successful in changing. You have to understand how complicated this problem is. It is super difficult to change, I don't care who you are or what it is you are going to change. When things are then attached to the REWARD center of the brain is is almost impossible with out a lot of things coming together to support it and even then I would challenge that most people who appear to have changed have simply began to substitute another behavior for the one that has been so called changed. The REWARD center is responsible for survival, it is there to urge us to repeat behavior that is good for survival, or our selves and of the species. the urge I speak of is sometimes called CRAVING and to try and ignore or denied cravings is true suffering. so stop judging how people live there lives. capitalism is the reason we are all struggling with being happy. and no one is going to change capitalism. the war on drugs, classism, those who have and those who die working to that those that have continue to have. if everyone would look at each other with love and kindness and caring and no one had to suffer because they did not have, oh yes and no one was lazy and just wanted someone else to do for them we would be in a happy thin world with no substance misuse or fat people

There's nothing unpopular about telling fat people to stop eating. Unfortunately, it's all the same misconceptions about food and diet which neglects to take into account genetic conditions, medical conditions, accessibility of healthy foods and appropriate healthcare, economic status, and a shit load of other things that people often don't want to muddle through because it's easier just to say "stop eating so much!" than to look at the actual issues.

Shaming doesnt help the vast majority of those who are overweight. This also doesn't recognize the fact that fat disorders exist and in a society of shaming those who are obese, people with these diseases are often ignored and told they are "non-compliant" despite all their efforts to lose weight. Misdiagnosed and accused of being liars is super common. This isnt about being ashamed, it is about the usefulness of verbal abuse towards people you judge by appearances alone. Its abusive. Its hurtful and it's not okay in any circumstance. Lipedema, Lymphedema and Dercums are real diseases and they aren't that uncommon.

except not everyone who is “overweight” has a food addiction or is unhealthy. that’s an assumption that has been debunked many healthcare professionals. many extended size people eat healthy and work out regularly but due to their metabolism or genes are naturally not thin. and what about thin people who do have food addictions? they literally exist all over the internet, and yet they don’t get shamed. shaming someone who is thicker by rigid, mostly european beautiful standards is not the same thing as shaming someone who has a food addiction. it’s just a way to punch down and feel superior.

80% of obese people are in fact sick and will develop either diabetes, cancer or heart disease early in life. There is no such thing as naturally fat, when you don't eat you starve. When you eat to much carbs and fat you gain weight, when you eat to much protein and not enough fat and carbs you will lose weight and eventually starve. And it isn't a European beauty standard, it's a global beauty standard that people are attracted to people of a healthy weight. Being fat is only a status symbol in poor countries to show you have money for a lot of food.

Dear Jim, I'm a fan of yours and that's why I watched your video. If some random guy decides to "care about me" and call me a fat #*@%! I'm going to punch him in the face! When most people hire a personal trainer (if you can afford one) you hire the trainer that shouts out "You can do it, your doing great, you can do one more!" Not "You worthless fat piece of #*@%! you're not doing it right, lift more, do it faster!" This is not motivational, your never going to want to exercise again. Bullying/ Shaming/Making fun of someone = Hurting someone. If you have tried every creative way that you can think of to help someone lose weight, and now your very last idea is I'll HURT them to HELP them! Then you're not the right person for the job, find an expert. Jim I still love you, keep the comedy coming.
