The thing is that "discrimination" is for people who got that way, without them wanting to be like that. You can "discriminate" against gays, handicapped people, etc.

But obese people chose to become obese. On one hand, they collect welfare because they are "unfit for work" on the other hand they "want jobs".

This story is from a reporter who is barely getting by, and has nothing better to report on. Its common sense, as Mr. Humbert stated, who would you hire? A obese person (who is obviously counter productive) or a attractive young woman?

This isn't discrimination. If they didn't want to be discriminated against, they should loose weight before applying for a job, or seek free professional help.

Do women actually think that we give them jobs because they are useful and smart or something.. and not the fact that we look at them as a potential root or bj, or at the minimum a piece of meat to perve on all day?

MEN > women

It's a fact of life, if you go into centrelink you will never see attractive good looking young women unable to find work.

Well you don't need a study to tell you that fat people are discriminated in the work force. Camon some peoples view on this is very different. Fat people are not OH&S risk the only risk is the psychological damage that occur from this discrimination fat people are bullied as kids 100% they are going to be bullied as grown adults that see obese people as objects of amusement gezz man grow some brains man.

A fat woman at my work once ate my ski delite yogurt which
i had brought for morning tea.

I saw her eating it. I think it was the first time she had tried a 'lite' yogurt, she seemed perplexed.
