Wow this is amazing! I am plus size and a burn survivor and i have always wished there were legal protections for people with physical or facial differences like scars, etc. Body size should also be protected! Protecting body size could bring us closer to protecting other things that are needed! Whitney you continue to amaze me! Thank you for bringing awareness to this cause.
