    Of the ladder question?

    It's a really tough question!

    How to tell a woman she's fat without telling her she's fat..

    Don't get on that ladder. It will collapse under your enormous girth.

    Dumb. Doesn't the character slowly gain weight throughout the movie? Wouldn't that be massively unhealthy and dangerous for a real person to do? And the movie portrays a person who is miserable and part of that is being hugely fat.

    I don't like sad movies and I'll never watch this one, ever. And I don't buy Dove. So **** them all.

    Well - it is an Aronofsky movie, which means it is brilliant (he is probably the best living director), but it also means you will go into a depression and want to blow your head off after watching it. I have seen it, and it is very good - but it is also sad in a very deep and disturbing way---- when someone realizes that they really will die from their weight, that they are a burden on those that they love - and those around them will be better off without them inconveniencing them....... and guess what? They die and all of that is true, everyone that loves you or cares about you has relief and then just moves on with their lives.

    No one loved anyone in that scenario. Or fake love at best. The dude getting fat didn't love himself or those around him, those around him that enabled him didn't love him, and he didn't love them either if he expected them to take care of him. Sad situation all around.

    You guys create fake enemies to be outraged at. No one, leftist or otherwise thinks this is healthy. What this person is doing in that video is called "engaging with the algorithms". They know people like you exist that will increase engagement and therefore clout and potential revenue.


    The irony here is people like you are the ones that are encouraging this behavior by engaging with it and spamming it.

    Obesity was an epidemic before TikTok... @AroundTheWorld linking a tweet isn't the problem.

    So I’m confused do you support this sort of behavior or not? I know when localities have tried things like taxing soda or replacing soda and snack machines with healthier options in schools Republicans usually are against it.

    It's gotten worse with the false woke claim that fat is healthy
