Being able to make snap judgements based on physical appearance is an evolutionary survival skill. Our ancestors had to be able to decide in a split second if that *whatever* was dangerous, or not. Fight or flight?
What makes us human is the ability to go beyond that snap judgement to see other characteristics in that *whatever*. We still have the instinctive reaction to make a instant decision based on appearance, but if we think and collect more data, we can change our initial impression. This holds true whether the person we're looking at is overweight, of a different culture or ethnicity, disabled, or is in any other way "different" from us and what we're used to.
It's unfortunate that some people don't learn how to go beyond the snap judgement and think.
This isn't directed at anyone here, just a general "IMHO".
You make your choices, and you live with them. In the end, you are those choices.
