Feb 7th 2008 11:08AM Articles like these are always so interesting to me. This one in particular reeks of intolerance and an underlying disgust for people that are overweight. Its one point to make a suggestion for a travel destination and pointing out cultural differences/practices that may appeal to people. Pardon the metaphor, but I'm sure you wouldn't dare suggest to someone with a missing limb to travel to a destination where they would feel comfortable. Couldn't they just find a prosthesis, make themselves look "more normal" according to whatever standards are 'acceptable' and stop "circumventing the issue"? And no, I am not overweight so those comments can't come my way. The point is, if people spent more time worrying about themselves and their OWN words, actions and behaviors - the world may be a little nicer of a place live.
