Talk:Homosexuality and obesity

From Conservapedia

Really?

Is this what this site has resorted to? Calling everyone who doesn't agree with you obese is sinking pretty low. Read up on logical fallacies, particularly "ad hominem". I know whoever wrote this was trying to be humorous, but really, this is just mean. What's worse is this actually made the main page--Jasonb242 23:08, 25 June 2011 (EDT)

Conservapedia cited legitimate information from the CDC and medical journals. I realize you dislike this data, but I see no reason to suppress it for the sake of your errant liberal worldview. Get used to reality. It is not going away. conservative 01:40, 26 June 2011 (EDT)
Hi conservative, I'm new here. Have you seen this study that finds religious people are healthier and live longer because they exercise more? Here it is. You should put it in your articles as it is from a peer reviews journal.

Possible misreading

If the study shows that homosexuals are more likely to engage in "weight management", would that not imply that homosexuals have a higher chance of experiencing anorexia, not obesity? I doubt obese people "manage" their weight that much. --Videogone 12:30, 20 October 2012 (EDT)

In fact, I can't find any actual data on the page linking homosexuality and obesity. Sure, Stephen Fry isn't a thin man, but nor are a lot of conservative Christians. We must recognise that not all people of a certain kind are exactly the same if we wish to create a respectable encyclopedic resource, and this page appears to be little more than a collection of separate statements condemning homosexuality and obesity, with nothing linking the two. Taking into consideration the "weight management" thing, which I firmly believe is a misreading, weight management, again, not contributing much to obesity, should this page not be deleted or at least cleaned up a lot? At the moment it just looks a bit silly, which is exactly what a site not without its detractors doesn't need. --Videogone 12:48, 20 October 2012 (EDT)
