I read this article called Fat-Shaming by Colin Brooke. He responded to a twitter from a university professor who said: Obese candidates for the PHD program should not even apply. Being obese means that you are weak and have no willpower and would not be able to finish a PHD program. The response was outrage.
Colin Gifford wrote an intelligent, honest, painful response to this subject. It was excellent but also sad. I have been obese and have understood the pain of airports and chairs. I encourage anyone to read it. He also talks about the how the Big and Talk clothes often do not fit.
I am saddened by this cruelty..plus I think it is illegal to discriminate on being obese in a job.
