A big part of the reason people are so inactive these days is because they drive distances that could be cycled (or even walked!). Something like 60 to 70% of car trips are under 5 miles & something like 40% are under 2! Isn't that shocking?

Regarding the fat acceptance; funniest thing I heard was that fat is 'normal and representative of the average woman' this argument won't have as much weight (pun deliberate) in countries with lower obesity rates like Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland.

Sure, we shouldn't discriminate and pre-judge people but that doesn't mean we should remove the aspiration to become more attractive like those fat dykes seem to be trying.
