Laziness, Entitlement, And Utter Lack Of Spine, 2.0
I have written yesterday about how the evils described in the title are driving kaputt the Country in which I live. Allow me, now, to expand on an important consequence of them; the reason, in fact, why I have thought for many years now that obesity plays a big role in the spread of approval for sexual perversion.
Where I grew up, people didn’t make excuses. They did not make them for themselves and therefore, quite naturally, they did not make them for others. Life had rules, and these rules had to be followed. The rules impinged on all aspects of daily life: proper dress, proper look, proper communication, proper behaviour, proper eating and drinking, proper sex roles.
The result? Obesity, drunkenness, tattoos, pink hair, or suicide were extremely rare. When people start berating you because you are not properly combed, suicide is a long, long way away. When children throw stones at you for being fat, it does more for the fight against obesity than countless books.
Fast forward to today’s England. Young twenty-something Miss Zeppelin has no will of her own, no discipline, and no spine. What she is afraid of, is being ridiculed. No one throws stones at her, though, so the public humiliation is merely implied. Still, Miss Zeppelin craves acceptance. She will, also, not be really able to criticise, say, sodomy. Her instinctive disgust for it will be tempered by her big, fat ignorance. She will not be able to properly distinguish between her issue and the issues of those others. Her predictable move will, then, be acceptance. I accept everybody so that everybody accepts me. I will not criticise anybody’s lifestyle lest they criticise mine.
I see this mechanism instinctively at play all around me, because I see around me people unable to discern right from wrong, and even desiring to be “affirmed” in what, deep down, they know is destructive to them. Therefore, the obese young man and the perverts of all stripe will be natural allies. They both know that. The rule is “everybody as he pleases, and he who talks is Vladimir Putin”.
It’s mutual complicity. It is, also, mutual self-destruction.
Those around them, as always, go with the vocal minority. They have obese friends/relatives, or perverted colleagues. They are not interested in the ultimate destiny of either. They are interested in getting along, not being criticised, being “nice”.
The mother of old, who harshly rebuked her daughter at the first sign of getting fat, and told her she will never find a decent husband if she does not discipline herself, really loved her. The mother of today, who “affirms” her “body positive” apprentice whale, loves her Facebook profile more. This is, again, disinterest, laziness, unwillingness to do what is difficult, desire to go with the flow.
When the daughter dies at 42, her friends will make tributes pour from all corners of Facebook, swearing how wonderful she was.

I think acceptance of sodomy is also because even many of the thin and fit engage in all types of sexual perversion within and without of marriage and truly believe, like Bergoglio, “who am I to judge?” We are a pagan society now. Hard Porn, soft porn on TV (ie: Outlander) sex toys for all, Viagra, contraception, gender-bending—it’s all good.
Women don’t realize that managing your appearance is not only a charitable act toward your husband and others but also an objectively physically healthy thing to do. I would add on ignorance to your list of attributes for these folks. Hopefully if they were taught the truth they would join the sanity train:+) God bless~
My take is that if a young boy or girl weights 300 pounds at 24 it’s not about being told, it’s about switching one’s brain on…
Try telling fat people that their obesity is due to their caloric intake and they’ll not only deny it but get hostile with you for suggesting it. The overweight women I know all have had their doctors tell them to lose weight to take the strain off of their hearts or their knees or their backs. These women will say flat out that food has nothing to do with their weight because they hardly eat anything. It’s a joke because they mostly either eat out or order in or pick up their meals. In between they have smoothies.
I have read somewhere that women tend to “underestimate” the amount of calories they ingest by a huge amount, like 35% or 40%. Then, book writers write books about obesity and explain that it’s not the fat woman’s fault that she is fat. They only eat 2000 calories a day and they still get fat, see? (Spoiler: they eat almost 3000; but hey, the donut “doesn’t count…”)
As in many other things (from males pretending to be women, to the conflict in the Ukraine) people will be happy with beign told what they want to hear…
This morning, on my drive to Mass in my East Texas town, I passed the town square. There was a group of about 15 protesters with obscene signs regarding the Texas governor, Abbot, who is trying to abolish abortion completely, as well as the crude signs about ‘my body parts’. (This state is- or was- the corporate headquarters of Planned Parenthood.) The group, mostly middle-aged females in the usual sloppy clothing, were shouting as people drove by.
When I was driving home after Mass, the group seemed smaller, and younger. I don’t need to say that they were sloppy and obese, squeezed into very short shorts, and again carrying the signs. I almost pulled over to take a photo but I was too embarrassed for them! They were all exactly as you have portrayed them. I just prayed for them as I passed.
Meanwhile, there were armed guards at the cathedral and at my church…fortunately there were no disturbances.
