The Ridiculing of Fat People
Fat people suffer discrimination from all aspects of life. According to America Obesity Association, approximately 196 million adults in U.S are overweight.

There are many stereotypes about fat people that are negative and not entirely true. This includes stereotypes that fat people are greedy, lazy, stupid, have no self-control and so on and so forth. These stereotypes degrade fat people because they destroy people's individuality and emphasize only on the negative qualities.
