Grassroots campaigns? You mean Koch Industries-driven corporate astroturf?

By the way, I receive SSI disability (because as a result of diagnosed mental issues I am unemployable, and I have effectively no family); furthermore I am under the LGBT umbrella - the Tea Party types have been very vocal in saying that they consider my type to be a waste of oxygen, and wouldn't want my support even if I were willing to give it to them.

I know what they CLAIM to represent, and I know what they represent in their words and deeds.

Most of the ones who I've heard open their mouths are blatant christofascists, historical revisionists, racists, sexists, etc. My assessment that they want to turn us into a "Christian Saudi Arabia" is based on their words and deeds (listen to their talking points, there's a lot of Christian nation, Seven Mountains Mandate and the like talk).

Oh, and of course, coming from a situation of scarcity, they would not accept "I've had enough" while there was still food on the plate... So from a young age we're raised on the wrong idea of how big a meal should be and taught to ignore the signals our bodies tell us when we've had enough. Now we're no longer capable of recognising those signals, assuming our bodies still bother sending them at all. We're the ones who have to measure and track to compensate for that broken feedback loop.

Absolutely agree with you here, having had a lot of that "happy plate" stuff shoved down my throat (and more literally than you'd think, too). It's hell just to cut my meal size in half, because I'm so used to "eat until sated".

Now, back on topic: no, it should absolutely *not* be considered a disability. If you're genuinely overweight or obese due to medical conditions, those medical conditions are your disability, not your obesity.

Agree here too.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
