Discrimination is banned widely across the United States on characteristics such as race, sex, nationality, and the like.

Many progressive locations have banned discrimination based on "gender" ideology under the odd idea that decades ago when Congress banned discrimination based on sex, members meant the various alternative sexual lifestyles now appearing in society.

Now New York had moved the bar further, declaring that discrimination in employment and public housing based on obesity is banned.

report at The Federalist explained Mayor Eric Adams signed that into law Friday.

Adams said, "It shouldn’t matter how tall you are or how much you weigh when you’re looking for a job, are out on the town, or trying to rent an apartment. No one should ever be discriminated against based on their height and weight. We all deserve the same access to employment, housing, and public accommodations, regardless of our appearance."

From now on, alleged instances of such crimes will be investigated by the City Commission on Human Rights.

The move was, however, being criticized by some, including Republican City Councilman Joseph Borelli, who said it allow anyone to sue anyone and everything.

"I’m overweight, but I’m not a victim. No one should feel bad for me except for my struggling shirt buttons," he said.

The Federalists cited the mayor's move as "another hallmark example where public policy follows culture. Obesity had already become a protected class under the hierarchy of oppression outlined by left-wing social justice standards for years. In January, TIME Magazine stigmatized exercise as white supremacist four months after Lizzo, an icon of the pro-fat movement disguised as 'body positivity,' railed against 'oppression' at the Video Music Awards. But if Lizzo were a true crusader for social justice, she’d blast the food industry for driving the weight epidemic today, wherein black Americans have the highest prevalence of obesity."

In fact, The Federalist previously cited the magazine reporting in explaining that the new racist ideology includes that "conventional health and beauty standards are outdated fixtures of white supremacy."
