New Haven, Connecticut – Male members of a jury are more likely to find a defendant guilty if the accused person is an overweight female.

The researchers gathered a group of 471 pretend peers of varying body sizes and described to them a case of check fraud. They also presented them with one of four images – either a large man, a lean man, a large woman, or a lean woman – and identified the person in the photograph as the defendant.

The male pretend jurors were proven to be significantly more likely to find the obese female defendants rather than the slim ones guilty.  Full Article

    That’s because men are pigs who only find beauty in skinny barbie doll bi*ches. They sent the obese women to jail because they don’t find them attractive and see no reason to have them out walking the streets. They let the skinny women go free because they love skinny ho’s and don’t want to send a potential lay to jail to rot behind bars.
