Size Discrimination

What if you got hurt and went to see your doctor, but the doctor didn't take you seriously? How would it feel if based on your appearance people assumed that you were lazy or stupid?  These things happen to overweight people all the time.  Today on "Talk of Iowa" we discuss size discrimination with Iowan Katie Opperman, who has experienced this prejudice firsthand.  We also chat with University of Iowa Fat Studies scholar Melissa Zimdars and Jaye Gipson, of the plus-size fashion blog Curvatude.
