Obese People are Openly Discriminated Against

Being fat or overweight is the one last areas where discrimination is still currently allow in America or around the world. Fat people are ridiculed every day because they have a problem that effects their outwardly appearance.

If a doctor was to ignore you, and treat you with less respect not because of the your color or religion or sexual preferences but because you look like you eat a lot. How would you feel?

This leads to a bigger epidemic where overweight people are less likely to get help from the professionals that can help them most. Is obesity such a heinous crime that those who are fat are treated like lepers where the thinner kids think “there’s something wrong with the larger kids?”
