My Boyfriend is Prejudiced Against Overweight People

Photo by Verywell Family

Dear Miss Cynthia, I am a 26-year-old woman and have been dating a guy just over a year and a half. My boyfriend is caring and supportive and I love hem -- but he's prejudiced against people who are overweight. He makes obscene jokes when he sees large people in public and generally has a bad attitude about people with weight issues. He is the type of person who is very outgoing and speaks his mind, and sometimes when we are certain places I have to keep my fingers crossed as I never know what he’s going to say or do in public. My best friend who I haven’t seen since high school is coming into town in a few weeks and wants to get together and catch up on old times and hangout. Jokingly, she said she has gotten much bigger since high school as she has had several children with her husband. I’m not entirely sure how big she has gotten, as she was a bit on the thick side when we were in high school but my question is; should I keep my boyfriend away from her? I fear he may say something insensitive or rude and she could take it the wrong way, any suggestions? -Hmmm in New York Dear Hmmmm in New York, You and your boyfriend need to sit down and have a serious talk. He needs to mature! You need to tell him exactly how you feel about his behavior! He is very cruel making crude comments about people with weight problems and needs to be informed about how cruel he really is! He needs to keep his feelings to himself! You need to set him straight or set him loose! Do it now!
