Obesity VictimologyThursday, September 15, 2011
A 300-pound, White Castle-eating guy just wants to sit in a normal-sized chair like a “normal person” with his abnormally obese body. He can’t, so he is suing White Castle for not accommodating his fat ass. The religion of victimology gains another voice.
Martin Kessman, 64, filed a lawsuit against the fast-food giant last week in Manhattan federal court, claiming that the uncomfortable booths violate the civil rights of fat people.
…The Americans with Disabilities Act is “applicable — not only to me, but to pregnant women and to handicapped people,” according to Kessman, who is suing for bigger chairs and unspecified damages. “I just want to sit down like a normal person.”
