This does not surprise me. There is no justice, only a perception of justice. Most jurors are not the defendants' peers. I think we all know justice is not blind.

Allow light into your heart and home everyday.

I read that too, but didn't have time to look at how the statistical analysis was done. In other words, I withhold judgement a bit until I've actually looked at how the study was designed and interpreted...but yes, very disturbing.

I wonder how much class and education can undo the negative perceptions related to fat.

Interesting that this situation has nothing to do with attraction, yet the way men react is the same. I was surprised that fat men didn't suffer any of the same bias...that is not what I would have expected.

I can't say I'm surprised, jobs, restaurant seating, dating, pricing deals people perceived as attractive always receive perks.

Here's my thought about some men: They all talk about wanting a woman with curves but the second some skinny little thing walks by their tongues are hanging out of their mouth with drool dripping down their chins. To me their all talk but the truth always comes out in the end.

It is all about how male jurors tend to find overweight women guilty more then slender women.
