I don't feel sorry for fat people.

People aren't big boned or fat because they were born that way. They're fat because they eat too much and don't exercise enough. Period.

Thinness does not always equate good health.

Oh, and I loved this part:


Who's to define what is "free from distraction"? An unusual hairstyle? A big nose? Big feet? Big boobs? Facial hair?

This will be challenged, and probably quickly.
Let me guess....you're fat?

There IS a difference between overweight and obese. I'm not trying to "soften" anything with my "stick figure" comments either. I figure the skinnies can take at least a fraction of the abuse that the overweight have had to endure from them for all these years. How does it hurt YOU ? You're still going to get preferential treatment everywhere you go.

Fact is: It is a still a misconception that all skinny people eat healthy, just as it's still a misconception that all overweight people eat nothing but crap.

If I can get twice as much work done as my thinner counterparts because I eat a healthy job, then I should be the one who is promoted. Besides, I thought it was supposed to be about productivity. This judging everyone based on looks alone is flat out superficial and nothing more.
What you forgot to mention is that maybe your skinny coworker eating a burrito and chips for lunch goes to the gym everyday for 2 hours while you go home, eat a pizza and watch TV?

I've thought about that myself. It's like a nutritionist that is fat, or a dentist with bad teeth.

WRONG. I walk two miles a day as well as eating mostly fresh food & veg..Mostly prepared from scratch..as most culinary grads do.

I generally refuse to communicate with the brainwashed, but there are just so darn many of them. Yourself included. You've clearly revealed that you buy into the misconceptions about both the thin AND the overweight.

Start thinking for yourself. Goodbye.

Nobody asked you to feel sorry for them...just cool it with the anti-fat remarks.

While we're on the subject of eating too much, are you ok with thin people who scarf food as if it's going to be taken away from them at any moment ? If you are, then you are applying the infamous double standard.

This is not a, "fat bashing" thread. Do employers have the right to discriminate against people who are fat? I say, yes they do. There is no current law, obesity is not a protected "class". Fat people choose to be fat, by overeating, not exercising. They can lose weight. No, it is not easy.
