Weight Bias

Thanks to Yoni Freehoff of Weighty Matters, I discovered these three You Tube Videos put out by Yale's Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity. As one who has experienced both the bias of being obese, and being relatively normal in size, I found them especially interesting and worth the time to watch.

The first: Weight Bias in the Medical Setting was filmed for Health Care Professionals, but is worth watching by everyone.

The 2nd focuses on Weight Bias in the Home... something I think many of us are familiar with.

The final looks at Weight Facts & Myths. Although it does spend some time making excuses for weight and is more emotion based, it's an amazing look at how those of us of weight are treated via "hidden camera."

I'd say "enjoy" but that's not the right word. Maybe learn. Maybe identify. Maybe just be more sensitive.
