Abstract

Weight bias is a pervasive form of discrimination in our modern day society. Goffman (1963) offered foresight into why weight bias has become so prevalent in our modern era. Those with stigmatized identities which people perceive as controllable are seen as having a defect in their own character. This makes sympathy for the individual less likely than criticism.
