Why are women so fat?
Not the best advice in a number of ways, but he does make some good points about the excuses women make for themselves.

Petition Calls For Ban Of YouTuber Eugenia Cooney For “Triggering Her Fan Base”
Too skinny? Too fat? People don't lose their rights just because they don't conform to some arbitrary definition of the ideal body. I'd go so far as to say that starting the petition qualifies as a form of bullying or harassment since it's targeted against a specific person and threatens her financial well-being.

Ann Coulter fat-shames Trump protesters
Not seeing an issue with Coulter. The only issue I see is with manipulative reporters trying to spin this as an issue. If people don't want to be fat-shamed, maybe they should try losing weight instead of whining about being fat-shamed!

9-year-old: I was fat-shamed by Santa
The kid is fat, the mom is stupid, and Santa gave the kid some damn good advice!

CactusHugger: The mom should be fined for allowing the little butterball to get so fat! As for Santa he was probably just joking with the kid. Lay off the burgers and fries is good advice for anyone, but that kid definitely needs to take that advice instead of crying about being disrespected. A nine-year-old that fat deserves no respect and the mom should be publicly shamed for being so irresponsible!

Man Stands on 7 Hour Flight Because of Obese Passenger
I think the solution is simple. When a passenger is booking a flight, ask if he or she weighs more than 320 pounds. If so, require them to purchase two seats. If an obese person shows up to board a flight and has purchased only one seat, don't allow them to board the flight until they can prove that they weigh less than 320 pounds. It's pretty simple. Obviously, 320 pounds is an arbitrary number that I just picked because it seems excessively heavy, but you get the point what ever the most reasonable number might happen to be.

FAT PASSENGERS: Charging extra for people over a certain size makes sense. Just like you pay extra when bring extra luggage, it's fair to charge extra for people who have the extra luggage permanently integrated into their body. Well, I guess it's not necessarily permanent since they do have the option of losing the weight!

Obesity Is Ridiculously Deadly
It's considered an epidemic and it's been steadily getting worse since the 1980s.

There's a gender gap in physical activity levels
Before watching this, I wasn't too sure which way it would go. I was a little surprised that men are on average more active than women.
