How is it acceptable that you all feel free to question the hygiene of this woman, the application of amount of lotion, the amount of food she does or does not eat, and yet the issue is about a service provider charging extra to be prejudicial?
Would it be acceptable if someone said these things to your mother, your sister, your girlfriend or wife? Would you be such a raging jackass to say these things to people's faces, or is it just the anonymity of the internet that allows you to feel superior? Guess what?- your ignorance doesn't make me or any other fat person feel humiliated. It gives us another rallying point to prove that we are discriminated against, and provides solidarity.
Here's a different solution. Ms. Tan should buy better quality chairs. A chair rated for only 200 lbs is substandard equipment, which makes me wonder where else the little size Nazi is cutting corners. Formaldehyde in the nail polish, perhaps? Sub-minimum wage for her workers? I wouldn't doubt it.
