You do realize that two thirds of Americans (and many other countries too) are overweight and/or obese right?<br />
Recently, last few yrs, there has been a backlash against skinny people.<br />
Yes, fat people were wrongly made fun of and some still are, but the tide has been turning...<br />
Two thirds of people is a solid majority...
you could be moved with a forklift, with that one. yes they would
No matter who you are, what you do, or what you look like, there will always be those who have little or no respect for you. However, the things you do can serve to empower and justify their lack of respect, or take it away. If you cured cancer, it'd empower the drug companies and the fda to disrespect you, not because you're fat, but because you'd be pulling the plug on a major illness which currently is making a lot of fat old men rich. They'd never approve your cure, never let you call it a cure, and deny that it was real. This is the world we live in.
Honestly yes, maybe a little. But not like with a normal weighted person. <br />
People are really disrespectful and unconciously biased towards overweight people. Especially towards women. I read a study once where they found out that overweight people are less likely to get a promotion at work. Men can make a career when being overweight, I think it's because skills still matter more than looks for men. But for women who are overweight climbing up the career ladder is almost impossible.
