Obesity: Pain and Prejudice

nursing

Description

Unit VI Reflection Paper

In Chapter 11, we learn about stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination. Although many forms

of negative bias are either socially frowned upon or legally outlawed, there may be one area in

which it is still acceptable to hold negative beliefs about people (and perhaps even act on these

beliefs): weight. Please watch the following video from Waldorf’s Films on Demand library, and

summarize your answers to the following questions in the form of a Reflection Paper:

Obesity: Pain and prejudice (1998). In Heart of the Matter. Retrieved from Films on Demand

database.

1. What attributions do people tend to make regarding those who are overweight?

2. What evidence does this film present for the possibility of weight prejudice?

3. Based on your knowledge from this class, why might people be more willing to still express

negative beliefs towards the overweight?

4. Based on your personal opinion, should the overweight be legally protected from

discrimination?

Assignment formatting:

Your response should be a minimum of two pages, double spaced, with Times New Roman 12

pt. font. Use appropriate APA style writing when crafting your response and when incorporating

scholastic resources.
