"Here's the thing, most fat men look kind of jolly, or approachable in a humble but friendly way...most fat (and I mean obese) women have those aweful frown lines and puckered lips from smoking. They just look biatchy and like criminals. It's easier to convict someone who looks low class and like a biatch..."

Hope you're trollin, cuz if you plan to go into social work, you are going to encounter a lot of fat chicks.

The best study I've read was a test on how much women lied in studies. The study asked about sexual history and the only identifying factor was the color of paper the test was printed on. The tests were collected and the subjects were attached to "lie detectors" which they were told would detect lieing and they could be identifiedvas liars. The new tests were filled out and the results compared. The male subjects' results didn't change significantly while the females' sexual history increased in all parameters. So they were willing to lie even anonymously but told the truth when threatened with exposure as liars.

The important take away is that women will routinely lie to appear more politically correct. Anybody who doesn't think some creepy, fat neck beard isn't going to be sent up for whatever he's charged with by a jury of women is clearly insane.

Was home over the holidays. Watching one of those brain-melting "Judge" shows my parents like. The defendant was obviously guilty. Without opening her eyes, my mother says "I bet he's fat." He was.

Study only had one picture of each type -- e.g. there was only one overweight female. How do they know that it was the weight difference, and not hair color, or ethnicity, or any of the other differences, since there was only one of each? Perhaps the true discriminating factor wasn't present in the male set of photos.

I'm in the school of social work, but the school of social work actually put me off being a social worker...And I'm not saying it's fair...I'm just saying we as a society like to judge a book by its cover. However, yes, the social work field has a lot of fat chicks...most of the girls I'm in class with are huge, and have "a lot of feelings." Brrrrr. Gross.

OscarTamerz: Here's a variation of the study from 10 years ago. Scientists agree, women are lieing biatches.


Well, as long as they're not lying...

Fat chicks don't mind doing stints in jail. Three hots and all the lesbo action they can get. Exercise is optional...pretty cush deal.

Are fat women more likely to commit cheque fraud?

So if you are a defense attorney and your client is a fat chick, dress her up as a fat dude and put a fake beard on her. Voilà, she will get the same sentence as a fat man.

/which of course will be longer than for any woman, fat or thin.

Gyrfalcon: ExcaliburPrime111: Not sure if I believe this study. The thing with science is, sure, this published study seems to indicate that men, especially lean men, tend to "convict" obese females more than they would lean females, when given the same facts about an alleged check fraud crime.

But this is just one study, with a unique set of case facts for a specific crime, with specific pictures, using an at best imperfect approach (guilt or innocence was decided after reading a paragraph, not after a trial with evidence, the defendant in the flesh potentially answering questions, other testimony, etc.) Now, if more studies testing this association are done and the effect can be reliably replicated, then I'll believe it.

And if it is true, the advice is pretty straightforward: If your client is an obese female, with all else equal, screen out lean men as potential jurors!

Yeah, pretty  much all of this. OF COURSE, with everything else being equal, then sure, fat chicks could get a raw deal. The problem, of course, is that in a real live trial, everything else is not equal. I'd be willing to bet that a fat, scared, crying chick would get a much lighter sentence than, say, a thin, beautiful, but cold and heartless appearing chick, for instance....or a fat, evil-looking man.

Lawyers have known for centuries it's all in whether the jury perceives the defendant as sympathetic...not in whether they think he or she is skinny enough.


they are talking about verdicts not sentencing.
we see it here on Fark every single day practically... if you are heavier than perfect, then you get called all sorts of hateful names under the guise of "helping" that person overcome some perceived issue of overeating and self-esteem. The worst offenders here are likely the young slim Farkers (just like in the real world btw). Human nature is human nature regardless if its reality or internet. Young slim males take no other factors into account other than "calories in vs out" because they are ignorant and don't care anyway. A possible solution to this would be to let nobody under 40 or so serve in a jury period. Once a person has aged a bit and gained some real world experience (wisdom), they are better equipped to weigh evidence in a more impartial manner... Given human nature, younger crowds are led around by their emotions and genitals.

/The above statement, while I believe to be true is IMHO, not something i can cite... just observation.

Not wrong. Logical. From your link: "Objectors to from whence have support in logic, but logic doesn't feature much in English constructions, especially idioms, which is how one perhaps should regard the phrase these days."

I agree, many who use the English language use it illogically. Doesn't make it right.

Also, from your profile ... it's "Peace Corps," not "Peace Corp."

Maybe I'll keep it that way just to annoy the pilkunnussijas.  Or spell it "core" in true Fark tradition.

Yes, men, and society in general (those of us that are respectable non-obese people) HATE gross disgusting repulsive fat women (and fat men). get over it and put the sandwich down.

so what do you plan to do with your nearly worthless degree?

There've been other studies that showed juries more likely to acquit attractive people. so this doesn't surprise me.
