Obesity and Homosexuality

Slate.com has an immensely irritating article on how society should respond to obesity.

The article puts obese people and homosexuals in the same boat: people are born destined to be gay or fat, claims the article — and obese people who want to slim down should consider gastric surgery.

It’s a stupid analysis since the right sorts of diets have been proven effective in helping people lose weight and keep it off. Link.
