I've been told and read that Portenos do not treat fat people very well. I understand that some people dislike fat people (and that's their business as long as they don't turn it into a major production) but do the Portenos exhibit this dislike in a very overt manner? If this is the case, I don't think I'd feel very comfortable moving to BsAs and be treated so poorly. This question has me very concerned to the point that I'm not sure if I'd even want to visit let alone possibly move there. Are there any forum members who have any experience or information concerning this topic? Not only am I fat but I'm also gay so I am used to the extreme discrimation within the gay community and I suspect that the gay community in BsAs is no different than here in the U.S. but at least in the general population I'm treated with a little more respect. I just don't think I could handle it very well if the extreme overt discrimination was coming at me from the straight as well as the gay community. Any information would be most appreciated.
