7:24 am
of new york to chew the fat with the big people. the u.k.'s national institute for health and clinical excellence has issued a guidance suggesting that the word obese might be too upsetting and derogatory to use is this a case of political correctness gone mad this week let's talk about that last forty pounds is that when you were still heavy and someone called you obese with that offend you. have been called worse you know what's worse calling someone obese or calling someone fat. the same thing. so should we not address the facts because it actually you can dress it like that's just. it's just better things we don't but it's bad for people like at least the heart trouble and . who is in charge of deciding when
7:25 am
a word is slang and when and word is the proper term. i mean you don't really want the government to be in charge of that that's for sure of anything yeah i mean the government shouldn't be in the in the in the game of policing what you say certainly of what you think you know what if someone called you whitey if somebody called me why do you say that probably accurate but but you would you be offended no so why do people take offense to some words and not other words. probably because they care about what other people think it's an insecurity so we should just stop caring about what other people think and then the whole p.c. thing all go away it's not like you should start caring what other people think you should start caring more about what you think they get so matters in the context that it's used like if you look at somebody and say damn they're obese that's a that in that context i think it's derogatory i think to say the word obese or say obesity in general and when you talk about a condition is it would not be derogatory just a statement of of a problem in
7:26 am
a society maybe if we ever did this word to people would feel oh ok maybe oh it'll be good for a while regular people so there's no problem and was he one think about to what to take exactly like what are we afraid to college drug user or drug user exactly you know this is so big so what where we should escape from the pros defied the problem the night escape for a bit whether or not you think the word obese is derogatory the bottom line is it's also a medical condition and simply avoiding the word is not going to make the issue go away. all right back in just a moment with the headlines. please
