Calling someone ‘fatty’ a hate crime, say UK MPs via @independent_ie.

British MPs have suggested that calling someone “fatty” or “obese” should be considered a hate crime on a par with racism or homophobia.

Generations of children have traded banter about body weight in the schoolyard and Enid Blyton even named one of her characters “Fatty” in her ‘Five Find-Outers’ series.

Under the Equalities Act 2010, it is illegal to harass, victimise or discriminate against anyone on the basis of a number of “protected” characteristics, such as race, gender, age, sexual orientation or disability.
