Silliness Has Serious Consequences

July-August 2002

Across our desks has come an article titled “The Last Acceptable Prejudice.”

Hmmm, wonder what it could be? There are so many possibilities. Could it be prejudice against

- fundamentalists?

- Catholics?

- prolifers?

- Muslims?

- rednecks?

- sexually abstinent teenagers?

- men? fathers?

- stay-at-home moms?

- smokers?

Turns out the answer is: none of the above. The Last Acceptable Prejudice — hold your breath now — is against people who are overweight.
