Another Reason To Watch Your Weight

Heavy women make less and are treated worse in the work-place: http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/life/3-strikes-against-curvy-women-2396311/

I'm not saying that it's right, but it is reality.

Personally, I find it shocking that women are judged so harshly for having a few extra pounds, and rather disgusted by the poor treatment they receive. Even more shocking is that overweight men are not discriminated against in the same way overweight women are discriminated against.

In a society in which we are bombarded with images of women that are nothing but fantasy, I guess those in charge find the reality of women too jarring. Unfortunately, we can't photo-shop ourselves in the real world.
