I think it would be better to stop wasting time justifying obesity and just set a universal limit to clothing sizes. Make a set of ideal standards and if you go past that you don't get to wear clothes. Make wearing clothing mandatory for the purchase of food. Make it illegal to be a feeder.

It would be even easier to admit that as a species our sole purpose is to be a plague worse than locusts.
