When we talk about things that as a society, we dont want to discriminate against people about, we have essentially set the standard at what someone
was born with. So if someone is born black, a woman, disabled, etc, we dont discriminate against them. Similarily, we dont discriminate against
people who have been injured and lose use of their legs, etc, becuase they cant help what happened.
The fundamental issue, therefore, is whether one is born fat or chooses to be fat. If someone is born fat, then they cant help that. I have no
problem treating them equally.
On the other hand, when you see some guy taking up 2 seats in McDonalds washing down 2 Big macs with a rootbeer and a supersized fries, its sickening.
Where do they expect to store that burger? Are they gonna grow a third ass? Its disgusting and brought on by the individual.
