Why are obese people made fun of or bullied?

Don't judge a book by its cover
Just because someone is overweight does not mean that they are dumb or lazy.
Lets face it fat people are unfairly stereotyped, and I don't think its cool.
Just because someone is overweight does not give you the right to make fun of them,ridicule or think you are better than them. I have friends who are overweight, they know they are overweight and they get treated like crap by people simply because they are fat.
I have one friend who has a problem with his thyroid, he was very athletic and handsome in high school but when his thyroid starting acting up he started getting fatter, he cannot help it and according to his doctor there is simply nothing he can do to lose weight due to the thyroid and he really gets picked on and stereotyped even by his own family, it has cost him a marriage and I am concerned that he may take his own life, he is that depressed because everywhere he goes he gets picked on simply because he has gained weight, his own father told him that if he would've got off his fat ass that he could have saved his marriage.
I would not doubt that at some point in the near future, new laws will be written to help protect fat people from getting made fun of. I believe it will be like the new hate laws, I'm not a lawyer and if you mistreat a person simply because they are fat it could be a crime due to the hate crime laws. anyway you can read more about the hate crime laws here and decide for yourself
It is a fact that 1 out of every 3 people in the USA are overweight and it has been called an epidemic according to some experts.
I think it is really silly to judge a person by their looks or weight instead of by their actions and I am going to try not to ever stereotype anyone ever again and I hope this hub will inspire you to do the same.
