Comments: But it does focus the mind...

Trying to understand: Being gay makes someone a member of an oppressed, protected class but being overweight makes him a legitimate target of unsolicited government protection from himself? I suppose in the minds of myopic nannyists the distinction is "innate" versus "behavioral." Yet is there conclusive evidence that no one is "born" to be fat? Do they not deserve the same benefit of the doubt, or is it fair that gay people also be lectured and regulated at the margins for whatever behavioral choices supposedly "make them" gay?
