Weight Stigma in Australia
Weight stigma (also known as weight bias) refers to negative opinions, assumptions, attitudes or responses toward a person because they are either overweight or has obesity. Weight discrimination is the fourth most common form of social discrimination amongst adults – and follows closely after age, gender and race discrimination. It is the only form of discrimination still widely thought to be socially acceptable.
