Interesting situation.

It seems in our modern era discrimination and hatred are allowed if you are overweight. I see it every day on forums and Facebook. Not just saying someone's fat - I'm fat - that's just a label. An accurate one. Rather the hatred of overweight people, like they are all lazy Twinkee eating slugs.

My mother worked her ass off in a laundry room all her life and was not lazy nor a glutton (in the least). Quite the opposite. But she is fat. Labels are one thing. Generalizations and stereotypes are another.
