    I don't think so. Saying nothing is not showing due regard, it is showing self control.

    There's a Brit in this village who has supposedly been following the Slimming World diet thingy. He hasn't lost any weight in 2 years and I suspect he goes to the meetings for the company. Of course, maybe the Slimming World thing doesn't work. I don't know. I have no respect for him whatsoever - he's a cuddly wuddly beary beary boo. He's also an overweight cuddly wuddly beary beary boo who in reality makes no effort to reduce the cause of a lot of his health issues. But I say nothing. I have done in the past but now, I follow the guidance of 'If you can't say anything good about someone, then say nothing.'

    There's also a woman who's relationship with a Turkish bloke broke up early this year. She's lost quite a bit of weight and looks awful. She also suffers from asthma and a couple of days ago when I mentioned that I hadn't seen much of her she told me she'd been taken to hospital twice in the last 2 weeks and treated for the early symptoms of pneumonia. She was smoking a cigarette as she was telling me. I say nothing but not from respect.

    Another Brit bloke has been hospitalised 3 times in the last 3 years with DVT and has been lucky not to lose his right leg. I tell him occasionally that he's a cuddly wuddly beary beary boo because I think that comforts him. His lifestyle will almost certainly lead to another DVT which might kill him or take his leg - he was very lucky the last time. I asked him at the time why he'd called for help as he doesn't seem to care much about living. He shrugged it off. Do I respect him? No but I'm not as vocal as I could be.

    I'm not a #2- I have no 'due regard' for them. I simply don't vocalise it.

    The fat woman was partly right in that fat people should be respected, like everyone should be.

    There are many reasons someone is fat or obese and often its because of some kind of mental issue which causes the person to either overeat, comfort eat or shut them selfs
    inside and not want to see anyone or be around people, fat shaming these people will do more harm than good and drive them into deeper depression.
    I am very much like the above.

    About 5 years ago I weighed 45st and was being seen by Obesity specialists at Addenbrookes Hospital, I travelled there in a Bariatric Ambulance and when arrived I was wheeled across the
    main entrance way in my wheel chair, I noticed a Muslim girl pointing her mobile phone at me and when she realised I was looking at her she instantly pulled the phone in under her cape thing
    and looked the opposite way. No doubt she was going to send that to her friends or put it up on you tube so people could all laugh at the fat person in a wheel chair.
    If you already have mental issues which attribute to your weight problem then "fat shaming" usually will only make it worse.
    As silly as it sounds if instead of filming me she had of smiled as we went past and said "Hello" that would have been a nice start to the day.

    Whilst I was at Addenbrookes I took part in a Genealogy study which just means then take some blood and check it for abnormalities regarding to Obesity
    and I tested positive.
    The Specialist wrote to my Dr and myself and his exact words were "This is important as it strongly suggests that the patient has a Genetic predisposition for his Obesity"
    Make of that what you will as It was never explained how it effects me, I can only draw my own conclusions to it.

    In general I think the majority of people are thoughtless and uncaring because of the way they react when they see me , I like it when I am proved wrong though.
    Perhaps I should add some more to what I said as I don't think you saw the program? The woman was denying that being fat/obese etc was anything wrong or unhealthy etc and people shouldn't be bodyshamed into changing. Obesity does bring undeniable health issues and that's where i thought she was in denial and dangerous as she was encouraging people to take pride in their obesity. Her aside the program was actually very interesting and showed medical reasons why some people are given to being overweight and how it should be treated as an illness because of this genetic disposition. When reading my comments, bear in mind my BMI makes me morbidly obese.

    That "due" is doing a lot of work in that sentence.

    How much regard is due to somebody with so little regard for themselves that they let themselves get obese?
