Why Is It That People With Anorexia Have an “Eating Disorder” but Obese People Are Just Fat Slobs?

Question by Sarah: Why is it that people with anorexia have an “eating disorder” but obese people are just fat slobs?

I consider overeating a disorder, and so does the medical community. “Society” just takes longer to catch on to things that regard their health, they’re more interested in gossip and mudslinging politics.
