I'm fat (a disability) and someone threw a cheeseburger wrapper on my lawn. I know they did this because I'm fat and they are trying to intimidate me. Now I'm afraid to leave my house because there might be an empty box of donuts on my lawn. We need a law to cover this situation.

Fat people are fat by choice and deserve no protection.

Diabled and gay people have no choice and therefore should be protected.

So sorry fatty!

BTW Hate. That has to be one of the dumbest comments made to date and you are a vile person. Not all obesity is a "choice" issue. There are several medical conditions that result in obesity, I'll list a few for you:
1. Autoimmune thyroid diseases
2. Cushing's syndrome
3. Hypothyroidism

So before you start calling people "Fatty", try educating yourself.

Get over yourself...the majority of obese people in the United States are not medically obese. They suffer from hand-to-mouth syndrome.

Yeah...that's mature.

Somehow, I think that being obese and being a homosexual is ever-so-slightly different.
