The carbophiles like to call the carb-intolerant "carbophobes." Whereas FEAR is rather a poor description of our wariness, I see nothing intrinsically wrong with being fearful of something that can screw people up as badly as excess glucose, fructose and starch are able to do.
Am I also crack-phobic? MeOH-phobic? MRSA-phobic? If so, is there anything actually misguided about that?
Are andropausal men estro-phobic? Recovering-alcoholics EtOH-phobic? Should people of color in some parts of the US be generically bullet-phobic or specifically cop's-bullet-phobic?
It is, alas, the tendency of some young and resilient individuals to sneer at the older and more wary for their bodily faultiness ... but I find that to be a result of their own youth-driven innocence of life. They tend to consider themselves strong and invincible because of intrinsic virtue, and that those who are not (or are no longer) are morally inferior cuz "weak." The karma-bitch in me looks forward to their surprise in a few decades, as she does to the shock of the ultra-religious in the theoretical after-life. ;-) "Wow," they'll say, "this isn't quite what I expected...." [evil grin]
I believe that avoiding danger is a sign of intelligence, not mental derangement, which is implied by the word "phobia." Even "safe starches" and paleo-approved sugars have the power to cause me to store fat, which is something I don't need to do. With my time-altered hormonal milieu, I don't burn glycogen and glucose as efficiently as I used to, so reducing the dietary precursors of both makes more sense than trying to force my body to compensate.
Why oh why do carbophiles want all of us to eat like them? I can understand why the overweight ones might -- it's a case of misery-loves-company or similar. But why do the lean ones care? Makes even less sense than the veg*n arguments....
