Obese kids more vulnerable to bullies
CNN wrote:
Children in Grades 3 through 6 who are obese are more likely to be bullied than their normal-weight peers, a new study has found.

I mean holy shit this is some serious fucking investigative journalism
"When we started this study, I really suspected that we might find that the obesity or overweight might not be the driving force," says the lead author of the study, Julie Lumeng, M.D., a professor of pediatrics at the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor.

this is some hard fucking science I mean damn
"Kids who considered themselves very overweight not only were bullied, but...indicated more loneliness, saw themselves as troublemakers, and saw themselves as sad, fearful, and wimpy," she says. "They really have huge struggles."

a key part of the study

KIDS TOO FAT TO ENLIST

    Love the comments:
    We need to start teaching kids about GTL to avoid the bullying all together. If overweight children can incorporate GTL into their daily lives we can alleviate childhood obesity in this country and stop the bullying.

    Clearly the solution is to ensure that everyone is overweight. Will this result in all school-children cowering in the corner in case a skinny dude shows up, or will the fat kids just bully the really fat kids?

    also

    reminds me of that story from a while back on BBC.com about the obese family where all of them are on disability for obesity and collect $$ from the gov't.

    They eat bacon fucking sandwiches like all goddamn day, and say as much in the story.

    Obesity really is a national problem though. I don't really know what you can do about it. I mean it's not like you can make people eat healthy food or exercise.
