A South Carolina middle school decided through some momentary brush with improvisational didactic genius to identify and segregate a group of about 40 of its overweight children students to lecture them about their obesity.

This group was labeled “the fat meeting” thus causing these kids to feel ostracized and embarrassed and humiliated. One child called to the meeting was autistic.

How nice.

Now look, the issue isn’t whether obesity’s a problem.

The issue is child abuse.
