Obesity is a big problem in Kentucky. In Alabama it is worse. That state has responded by working up a plan to charge overweight state employees $25 extra a month for their health coverage.
The move has brought the nuts down out of the trees:
“E-K. Daufin of Montgomery, a college professor and founder of Love Your Body, Love Yourself, which holds body acceptance workshops, said the new policy will be stressful for people like her.”
“”I’m big and beautiful and doing my best to keep my stress levels down so I can stay healthy,” Daufin said. “That’s big, not lazy, not a glutton and certainly not deserving of the pompous, poisonous disrespect served up daily to those of us with more bounce to the ounce.””
