More Americans are OK with Fat
Yet while we might not be as obsessed with thinness as we were back then, the study found that we still favor thin people over their heavier counterparts. When asked to make assumptions about a man photographed beside an obese woman and a woman of normal weight, the survey subjects judged the man more negatively when viewing the photo of him beside the obese woman. Overweight teens, moreover, are only half as likely to date as their thinner peers.
