Is it? We don't know the backstory. There have been several times in my life where I have been both fat and lazy. Is calling me such abuse or is it stating fact? There are many kids who are both fat and lazy. There are many fat and lazy adults. They are of all ages and sexes. So is it abuse if it is true? (Not saying it was true, as perhaps eKatherine's daughter was a willowy workaholic and ex was just a douche, but to assume the opposite is no more true without context).
