Scene from the Disney movie “Wall-E” featuring overweight people of the future.
I don’t think this is a good future. Does that make me prejudicial against overweight people?

In the April 24th episode of Fresh Air, Dismantling the Anti-Fat Bias, a journalist named Virginia Sole-Smith outlines the premise of her book Fat Talk.
