Myself, Julie Smith and my daughter Courtney Wilson are both considered to be of a larger size to others, and have both had severe experiences of "fat" shaming. 

We feel that we are being excluded from the hate crime that is associated with people of a different religion, sexuality, gender, nationality, and disability and are all able to prosecute those that commit these offences. All people, regardless of their appearance and diversity should be allowed to walk down the street without fearing that they are going to be discriminated against because of how they look. 

We feel that bullying in schools is mainly due to children being bullied because of their size, if it's anything else, then this is already covered in the law, and can be reported to the police. However, being called "fat" is not considered as serious. The majority of suicides are down to bullying, and we feel that "fat shaming" is added to the hate crime criteria then this will eliminate the majority of bullying. 

ALL BULLYING OF LOOKS, SIZE, GENDER IDENTIFICATION, SEXUALITY, RELIGION, COLOUR AND DISABILITY IS WRONG....please help us to get "fat shaming" added to this list, and stamp out the word "fat" when describing a person.
