News Reports Bias Against Fat
This is one of my many pet peeves. When the news programs on TV or even the newspaper does a story on obesity they always go out with their camera's and shoot peoples midsections or rear section, depending on which area is the fattest. They never take a head shot. Probably because they would get their pants sued off if the person could identify himself. So they go strolling down the street until they find a big butt then focus on that area and click away. Of course they wait until they can find two or three together because that gets the point of their story across even more. I have considered a way from this ever happening to me. So I can be identified and able to sue them; I am going to make a sign with my full name on it and glue it on my rear section so I can walk down a street with complete ease and confidence knowing my rear end will not make the evening news.
Yeah, I know. You're thinking the sign should say "Wide Load"
