I would be glad to call it something else but I think it is a real factor.
IMO, it only matters when someone cares about any of that.
IF they don't care that they need a scooter to get around the grocery store (and EVERYTHING that goes along with that), then who is someone else to tell them they are suffering a reduced quality of life? That is not for someone else to decide.
IF they have a problem with my 4 year old asking me quite loudly why they are fat and using a scooter inside... then that is a different story.
