Universal suffering
The Canadian Transportation Agency has decided that it's not discriminatory to force obese people to pay for a second seat or an upgrade if they wish to be comfortable. The ruling is based not on the tricky question of whether or not obesity constitutes a disability, but rather on the idea that airplane seats are universally uncomfortable to everyone. It's equal opportunity misery.
