Everything you say is true. I agree about cell phones and FB (I deleted my account), and it's a shame that parents are so paranoid now they don't make their kids play outside like we had to -- we weren't ALLOWED to play in the house unless it was raining or super cold and then we had to play in the basement (unfinished) or our room. And that's why we didn't have a problem with weight.
The problems with discrimination are still there, but at this time I can live on my own after my divorce, earn enough to pay a mortgage and be totally independent. That would have been almost impossible in the 50's and 60's.
And another good thing about these times is sharing opinions with people on message boards
