The silliness never ends:
Ellen Frankel stands just 4-foot-8 1/2 inches tall, a size that allowed larger co-workers to playfully scoop her up at the office and make remarks about her height. Some even patted her on the head.
Lawmakers are considering complaints such as hers as they review a bill that would make Massachusetts just the second state to bar discrimination based on height or weight.
"People in authority will very easily make comments about height that they wouldn't make about race or gender," said Frankel, a Marblehead author.
Jeanne Toombs understands the frustration. She says overweight people routinely are discriminated against because of their size.
Toombs is a board member of a group called the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance. I think I need to go lie down now. There is so much offense being taken out there that I can't keep up.
