More proof that fat bias is considered the last socially acceptable prejudice.

Sure, people can say it's for health reasons, to set a good example, etc. But I think it still comes down to some people wanting to have a group they can disparage and look down on and those lazy, no will power fat people are the only ones they are allowed to publicly say they are doing it with.

Plus it still remains absurd that BMI - created and designed to applied on a population basis - is being applied to individuals in this manner. BMI alone cannot say whether a particular individual is healthy or not.
