My guess is overweight people probably don't exercise and eat too much....

There is nothing attractive or healthy about being overweight, I hate when they get out of their cars with canes and lean up against mine and fling their doors open. Disgusting!!!

They get handicap tags, and steal spots from real handicap people. Not able to control your food intake is not a disability .

Did it ever occur to all of you that a Handicapped Sticker requires a Doctor's signature AND a medical reason for being handicapped?

NOT all "fat people" are lazy. Have any of you the intelligence to know there are many PHYSICAL reasons (liver, pancres(sp), lung, heart, etc.) problems that have created their reasons for being "overweight"?

Remember the saying "You can't always tell a book by its cover"!!!!

Did it ever occur to you that a lack of exercise and poor eating habits are what leads to your organ failure? Even if you obese, you should be in a gym or getting help with your nutrition etc. Enjoy your cats, birds, cigs, beer and Obamacare this holiday season but stop parking next to my car.

Some of the women could at least get in shape so they could attract a black man

You just proved how ignorant you really are.

Go back to school and take a science class and LEARN there are other reasons for being overweight than just what you eat!

I have even seen kids who are so fat they have to ride the scooters at Walmart..that is horrible, those carts are supposed to be for the truly disabled and the elderly!

It should be considered a form of child neglect to allow a child to get that obese!

Again - that child might have a liver or pancreas birth defect, or cancer, or a disease. Kids are usually very active and being as obese as you stated, I would tend to have more compassion and NOT be so judgmental.

Go back to school to learn why people are fat? Rarely is a person fat because of a medical situation. Its because they eat too much of the wrong food. Watch who stuffs themselves at Oily Garden, buffets, Mickey D's, etc. That's why people get fat.

I see many fat broads around wearing yoga pants with a thong. Idk why they think that they look good but this is a gross as you can get. I like my women slim and trim. 135 and under. Women should not weigh a deuce or even 175 for that matter

I love it....morbidly obese people justifying their weight while we are expected to subsidize their health problems and poor lifestyle choices.

The next fat azz that dings my car is gonna get a police report filed against them for being too big.
How many times do I purposely park away from handicaps and old school dented up minivans just to end up with my property damaged.
