Or just jam him in a toilet... Hard to imagine him dealing with the world...

This is not out of personal defensiveness or hurt as I've been 'trim and fit'
all of my life, as has, for the *most* part, my family. But I just have to
say that I find this sort of response, even to that obviously shocking picture
of remarkable obesity, really cringingly cruel. You "can't imagine him
dealing with the world" so you're thinking they should "just jam him in
the toilet"!? I don't know the guy, I know NOTHING about his life or his
character or his problems, but I do find the sense of .. what is it .. some sort
of priveleged arrogance rooted in a sense of personal superiority in your remark
to be sadly offensive and disgusting. For all our sakes I hope I'm not the only
one who feels this response .. but it is what it is if I am.
