Mississippi Burning

The latest circulating around the fat-o-sphere is a Bill the state of Mississippi is trying to get passed that prohibits restaurateurs from serving obese clients (anyone with BMIs 30 or higher). How is this not being prejudiced?

Like somehow refusing to feed a fat person in a restaurant is going to help curb the "obesity epidemic" let alone help someone control their weight?

The bill sound more like something someone wants passed because they are disgusted with having to look at a fat person when they are eating. Boo hoo...

Like fat people don't eat alone enough as it is. Let's segregate fat people even more from society. They certainly don't feel ostracized, victimized and abused enough. Kicking them out of restaurants will certainly help.
