This one was a long time coming. I noticed this immediately when it popped up in our annual mandatory harassment training webinar a few weeks ago. 

Though it wasn't codified yet, I've seen a few people over the years, mostly men get taken into the dreaded HR office after making jokes at a fat woman's expense. This was never equal across the board though, because I've seen executives and line-employees alike laugh off jokes made at a man's expense.

In the name of equality, this is a win-win.
