You do have a point, but personally I think you should just let people make their own choices and leave them to it. My irritability with it has a lot to do with the fact I've heard the same thing every day for the past fortnight, and his excuse is that his horrid girlfriend was picked on by fat girls at school for being skinny (as I said, it's her he's picked it up from.)
