We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Of course doctors can still say 'morbidly obese', because it's a commonly-used medical term like many others. If your doctor is too timid to use words that have been deemed unpopular, then perhaps your doctor's limitations are affecting the quality of care you're receiving, and you should seek medical care at a different level - if physical health is your objective.
I think a lot of doctors have come to disregard the absurdity of the AMA - to them, it has become an irrelevant nuisance. Really, we shouldn't be letting imbeciles steer our decision-making, and that starts by not paying them any attention.
Decades ago I was standing in the hot sun with a can in my hand asking for donations to help the "Mentally Retarded". Two teenaged "activists" accosted me from the comfort of their air conditioned automobile and demanded that we change the name of our campaign. Immediately. No matter the cost. The non-profit corporation we had set up to manage these funds on a national level used the medically correct description. I told the unreasonable activists that changing everything on a nationwide level would cost millions and they were welcome to help us raise that money. They answered that was not their job. I said they could step out into the hot sun and help us to help others, and this, of course, was also not their job. "So your purpose", I said, "Is to drive around and demand that others work harder for to make you happy." The rage began to leave them. "Well," I said, "Why don't you let me help others in my way, as I have done for decades. Good bye." They drove away. Hopefully, they learned little.
