Surgeon General nominee too FAT?

Holy crap. Thank you Feministing for bringing up this story. Michael Karolchyk went on Fox News (of course) and said that Dr. Regina Benjamin, the nominee for Surgeon General is too fat to have that job. He actually says that she is obese. Disgusting and ridiculous. This is obviously fat discrimination, which we see all the time, but don’t really have a lot of discussion about. It’s even worse, of course, when it has to do with females, which is what we’re seeing here.

Here’s the video:

    I so agree! How we have an obese doctor as our wellness representative. She does not even know how to be healthy herself! She she go to Dr. John McDougall 10 live in program, lose the weight and learn how to be plant eater!
