Overweight women miss out on jobs because of 'fat discrimination'
The Mail baiting its readers on their favourite prejudice again. Illustrated with:
Because fat women are never off the scales. All they can think about is how disgustingly fat they are — and chocolate, of course.
The comments are vile as expected:
[S]mokers, if they don't smoke in the office, don't incommodate others with their "bad" habits. Fat people don't leave their fat at home when they go to work - they impose the result of their chosen lifestyle on others. That is the main reason why many people don't like fat people.

I go on holiday once a year. I absolutely dread boarding the aircraft and find that I'm sitting next to a stinky, lardy, foul breathing apology for a human being.

They used to put fat ladies in circuses. Maybe they could bring that idea back and help reduce unemployment.

Makes sense to me. You don't get 25 stone men or women running in the Olympics? There is discrimination there too.

To all the people who are overweight and are complaining about the comments posted here. A lot of people dislike fat people and think that the only reason a person is fat is due to a bad diet and lack of exercise. Therefore we view you as lazy or as having no desire to better yourself. When you complain about having no time to exercise or being unable to afford to eat healthy food, it makes us dispise you even more - we all love unhealthy food and love sitting on our ar*es doing nothing but we know that if we do this we will get fat. If you make a choice to live this way, then that is your choice, but do not complain if people choose to treat you a certain way because of it!
