I came across this picture (& article) on how women stereotype other women based on whether they are fat or thin. At first I was appalled, but realized quickly that I too make some of these very judgements.

We jump to conclusions about strangers based on their weight all of the time.

It. Needs. To. STOP.

Next time you see a stranger, try to stop yourself from automatically assessing them & attaching labels to what you *think* they are; instead say hello. Smile even.


Let me know in the comments: Have you ever felt unfairly judged by your weight?
