Banning Obese People From Adopting, a Good Idea?

I recently told you about new restrictions China has put in place barring obese couples from adopting children from their country. What do you think?

Ooohhh. Sweetie you are good! I will never reveal my secret starbucks rendevous point. But nice try....You will just have to follow my Prius around town and find out. :ROTFL:

Tell her I'll bring some orphans! (I know! That was terrible. But I had to!)

Yes, little Vy (as I like to call her) always has fun with my Spencer. tee hee. Do you mean the Starbucks next to The Ivy, or across the street from Kitson?

Well, sweeties, Angie is out of the country alot, and all that charity work and the growing family keep her pretty busy. But, since you are such a :TREASURE: 'd friend, I will see what I can do. She owes me a little favor...
la_clique la_clique 9 years
Yes, she IS!I'm sure you notice more than I do, what with the weekly playgroups you attend. I have to settle for pictures when we meet up at Starbucks.
3Sweeties 3Sweeties 9 years
BTW, can you introduce me to Angie? I'm such a big fan!

Well, when I talked to Matt and Ben earlier, they said they didn't even KNOW Ms. Rivers. And isn't little Violet getting SO big?
la_clique la_clique 9 years
Well, 3Sweeties, I talked to my good friend Angelina about it and she didn't really think it was very funny. Maybe I should ask George Clooney next time I see him. ;) :ROTFL:

I mean, I notices Yao talking about open arms but COME ON! I think The Hulkster is too old to adopt a child from China anyways, the age limit is 50 LOL!

I think whomever Melissa Rivers is thinks she is being funny with the name dropping.
la_clique la_clique 9 years
Absolutely nothing, DRC. I noticed that LOTS of Ms. Rivers' posts are just words put together around the name of a celebrity that has very little to nothin to do with the actual posts or comments. Unless Hulk Hogan wants to adopt a Chinese child, and I just haven't heard about it yet. ;)

What does Hulk Hogan have to do with this thread :?

you know who has big arms? Hulk Hogan! I did an appearance with him at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in 2003!

Oh man I'm so outraged at this. I posted a blog last night about it too. I just think that obesity sometimes has nothing to do with food, furthermore, how can they possibly differentiate between that?

I think it's fine - it's in genes. If they want to welcome chinese children with open arms it's perfectly fine....eventhough their arms are twice as big as normal arms.

i think jgirly has a great point! just because you are obese does NOT mean you are not capable of being a fabulous parent. taking away someonoe's right to adopt for that reason is so absurd.
jGirlyGirl jGirlyGirl 9 years
I would have to think that even entertaining the thought of taking away a womans right to bear/adopt children based solely on the their weight is wacko. My mother is obese. She has been forever, despite her healthy eating habits. An orphan (or any child for that matter) would be lucky to have her as a parent.

Well, speaking as conservative i thought it sounds like a pretty whacko idea. adopted children to obese couples do not have the bad genetics that help contribute to obesity.I'm all in. Just remember to ban anorexics also as the poor child would grow up to hate themselves and be unhealthily thin. and drinkers cause their children could grow up to be alcoholics...etc.
