Like for instance somebody who weighs 600 Lbs.
Would you view that person as inferior?
I think there is definitely a point where you perceive that a person just doesn't give a fuck anymore.
no, i wouldn't view them as inferior. someone who weighs 600LBS is abnormal, and probably has a lot of issues to boot, but i try to have understanding, for i am living with many flaws, too.
a person really loses their dignity when they're at their breaking point. i'm talking about survival -- boiling a dead child in order to survive a bit longer during the winter, similar stuff. you learn about everyone during those trials.
Some people don't have integrity and can't be trusted. They may not realize it or may not care but either way, they consequently have no dignity.
I like to think that I'm not in competition with other people, but against my own potential. In that sense, everyone has equal opportunity to become a great success. Comparing my life to another's isnt really productive.
I just try not to think about shit like this, or be around people like this. Don't really care what the academic answer to your question is... I'm better off not asking it or thinking about it.
What if they were 600 Lbs. solid muscle?
Grown men wearing crocs is that point.
I don't see how a person in a survival situation loses their dignity. I respect someone who is willing to go to extreme measures to survive.
Stupid ppl have always existed. It's just that we live in modern times where ppl like that are able to survive.. even 75yrs ago those ppl would never reach maturity, let alone live.
Anyone who wears a blazer with a t-shirt and jeans has lost all dignity.
I don't see them as inferior but I know what you mean TS. I just have no respect for someone who lets themselves get that fat.
Knowing what we do about calorie intake and weight gain at this point you basically have to just be a disgusting glutton to reach a point of 300+ pounds.
Those people don't have respect for themselves. I don't care about what "issues" you're going through its really quite easy to count calories and not even workout and lose weight.
Anyone under 5'10"
I'd sell my integrity for a blow job and a bottle of whiskey...does that count?
TS been watching my 600lbs life? Some of those people definitely give off the vibe that they no longer care and are trying to commit suicide by hot dog.
Anyone that shows up for work.
participating in a buk kake would be a good example
I don't like to judge people because I don't like to be judged. I've got my own flaws to worry about.
Also, to me, dignity is somewhere between self-respect and honour. All three are basically imaginary, but I've never seen someone abused on the basis of self-respect, but I'm constantly seeing people abused under the guise of "honour".
I mean if that someone isn't doing anything to help himself then he might just have given up. If he's trying to workout and shit then it's obviously a different thing
My wife's former colleague is bordering into this territory. No house and job, wife left, no family to help. He's now freeloading with a relative of his ex wife, in a small water station room I believe. I'd imagine it was tough for him to ask for help, but it's pretty much survival for him at this point.
