Uni girl committed suicide after teasing about being fat, says Thai media

Thai Rath speculated that a university student in Chonburi may have committed suicide because she was constantly teased for being overweight. 

 

Saensuk police went to a dormitory building where the door on a third floor had to be broken down as it was locked from the inside. 

 

By a bed was the lifeless body of 21 year old Wanaporn Phaengya originally from Samut Prakarn. She had been dead about two days and there was no sign of a struggle. 

 

Thai Rath reported that the means of her suicide was also in the room. She had died of smoke inhalation. 

 

She was a third year student at a well known university in Chonburi.

 

A friend called Suradech Jaicheun, 22, said she was last seen on Tuesday and friends became concerned when she wasn't seen and went round to her room. 

 

He said that she was the kind of person that liked to keep herself to herself as she was very self-conscious about her weight. 

 

Her father Woradech Phaengya, 52, arrived and said she had no problems with her family. 

 

The police said there was no reason yet ascertained as to why she had taken her life. But many friends were saying that concerns about her weight and body shape caused her to commit suicide.

Funny that.

 

I keep MY pack of Saxa handy for posters who don't quote things in full.

So very sad. I saw two girls die of stupid comments about being fat in the '70's.

I got taunted here about my weight, now I do the laughing.

In 1 year and 3 months I have lost more than 50kgs, just by diet alone.

Kids should not be taunted like this, very sad to read.

RIP young soul.

So sad she thought it was easier to kill herself than go on a diet.  There must have been more problem in her life than just being teased for being overweight.

Yes you are exactly right. Nobody forces obese people to be gluttonous. They need to start taking responsibility for their own poor lifestyle choices.

Excellent, what gave you the incentive to do something about it? Mostly women get told how beautiful they look, their weight problem is regarded and taboo and they carry on ruining their health.

Unlike the West ( we’re not perfect either) but it is common in Thai culture to make fun of the obese, handicap, or someone that does not have the “movie star” appearance.

 

Ummm, not just in the West, but also on this very forum.

 

How many hunsum man who pay for sex here always make fun of Western women being fat?

How about the ones that don't pay women for sex? Are they now because of political correctness and nonsensical left leaning views precluded from speaking fact?

Let me know when you write your book on good lifestyle choices and I will buy a copy and burn it. What a typical, senseless and worthless comment.  

Many people blame rising obesity trends on various things such as junk food, burgers Pizzas, sugary drinks etc etc. But the simple fact of the matter is that virtually all instances of obesity are caused by over eating. Lack of exercise can also contribute but only in a small way.

As a child I remember vividly all those things mentioned above that are bad for you, plus sweets chocolate, biscuits etc etc. But not in the quantities people eat now. The secret is frequency and portion control, and each individual is responsible for their own choices. Eat an 8oz or more burger several times per week it will have an adverse effect, eat a 2oz one (the size they were when I was a child) once per week it will not.

One thing we never had back then was the plethora of ready meals and snacks that many now gorge upon. Just look in every 7/11 and you can see a constant procession of the pierce and ping brigade walking in and out of them places, many of them already obese! These things apart from your weight are also really bad for your general health, couple that with the fact that they taste like crap, personally it is a mystery to me why they are so popular. But do not get me onto the lazy because that would be going off topic.

You are exactly right here and it is not at all helpful. How many of these morbidly obese women do you now even hear proclaiming that they are proud of what they are? They even refer to themselves as BBW (Big beautiful women)!!!

To me it is beyond comprehension how anyone can have even the slightest hint of pride in a total lack of self respect, and lack of consideration for others around them??
