Oliver Twisted: FTFA: A social work professor at the University of Iowa told Ramos to return to the bar.

"She told my friends and I to go back and see if the same thing happens and to try to get them to say aloud 'I am not allowing you up because of your size,

She sounds fat.


If she wanted to go for the lawsuit, she should have just rolled up in a wheelchair and complained why there is no ramp up to the platform for her.

PJ-: If im in a bar/club, and i see that thing dancing on a platform, ill would take my drinking to another bar

send it drinks and watch in bemusement until it falls down.

Actually, if I were in a bar where people were dancing on tables and it was not Mardi Gras or New Years, I would probably go to another bar.

FTA: She said she tried to get onto a platform where several of her friends were dancing, but was stopped by the bouncer, who said they were at capacity.


Thank you, Yahoo writer, that part made me laugh out loud. At capacity is an awesome phrase. not a quote mind you, but an interpretation. Kinda like telling a fat person not to get on the elevator because, "we are at capacity and if you get on the cable will snap, plunging us all to our dooom!"

In their defense, they're very spontaneous people.

mbillips: In good news on the fat front, I've lost a hair under 10 pounds in the last two weeks, so now I am only 25 pounds overweight.

/People today are FAAAAAATTTTT!!!!! And not just in America; freakin' everywhere. Watch an early '80s teen comedy; the (completely normal, healthy) teenagers look like concentration-camp inmates compared to today's muffin-topped tubbies.


Better yet, watch a movie from the 40's or 50's. Women over about 115 pounds are either pregnant or in the movie only as comedy relief. The idea that a woman who weighed 200 pounds would get married and/or pass on her genes was considered laughable back then. Not so today.

/congrats on your 10 pounds!

She isn't "plus-size", she's fat. There's a difference. And she looks angry...you won't like her when she's angry.

Fark her for trying to trap the bar into saying what everyone knows already (nobody wants to look at your ugly ass) just so she can try to sue. Good on the bouncer for quick thinking.
 
2012-04-30 09:40:49 AM
She has no legal recourse and the only sympathy she will garner is from other "plus sized" women. The average person supports the bouncer in this instance.

A social work professor at the University of Iowa told Ramos to return to the bar.

"She told my friends and I to go back and see if the same thing happens and to try to get them to say aloud 'I am not allowing you up because of your size,'" Ramos said.


Jordan Ramos was a great big fatty, dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.
She thought she was really clever, dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.

Ramos approached the Human Rights Commission in Iowa City, but the organization told her they could not do an investigation because size discrimination is not illegal by law, Ramos said.

Jordan Ramos tried to sue them, dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.
The Human Rights Commission they knew better, smart smart smart smart smart.

If they don't let fat girls on the platform who are we going to laugh at while sitting and drinking???

She's lucky they didn't do what they did to my buddy. He apparently didn't know that only cute attractive ladies are allowed on the stage and tried to follow some girls he was dancing with. Next thing he knows somebody is pulling him down in a headlock and four guys are carrying him outside and throw him on the flat pavement of the parking lot
 
2012-04-30 09:48:12 AM
Really? Trying to sue for the "right" to make a spectacle of yourself at a bar? What are you people teaching your kids? Do you honestly teach them that suing everyone in sight will fix all your problems? I bet her parents are proud of what she is accomplishing at school...

Also, do people ever think these things through? "Hmmm, if I am able to sue these guys to let me AW myself, will this be the only place in town I'm allowed through the (double) doors because no one else wants to deal with my sh*t?"

/I sound old, but not fat

Maybe the bar had a 2 ton weight limit.

ChaoticLimbs: the bar would like to communicate to their customers. U


Any place that operates like this isn't around long. There's a dance club here in Chicago called The Neo, it's been around for over 30 years now. And they don't give a shiat. They just crank up good music night after night and young, old, skinny, fat, they don't give a damn. And it's a really awesome place.

As a person that was a fat bastard most of his life(first 3 decades, heart freaked and I lost 180 lbs, down to 154 at 5'10") I normally have sympathy for people like this. Being fat sucks balls and is honestly really hard to deal with.

That being said.

Nope. Nada. Nein. No sympathy here. "Plus Sized" my ass. You're fat. You're not really unattractive if you'd clean herself up a bit and wear some clothes that work.
Some people like the plumpy and more power to them, however most do not.
Deal with it.

Woman in the 40's were 2 inched shorter on average than today and they were going threw or grew up in a depression. You were lucky to get 3 square a day. The 50's you will notice woman started to get wider and by the 60's you started seeing big girl dress stores in the city.

I have no issue with fatties. I have several friends who would be classified as such and it does not affect my friendship with them at all. People are people.

However, being a fattie restricts access to certain situations (it is not a personal thing), and you need to be cognizant enough to know when those situations are happening. Sorry, but as a 43-year old man myself, nobody wants to see my haggard ass up on a bar dancing and shaking my thickmeat buttocks to LMFAO. It's cool.

Why make such a stink? Because she is a Fattie with an Agenda™, one of the saddest spectacles in humanity. She probably has friends (like those in the photo) who feed into her sense of entitlement instead of telling her to "just blow it off".

Also, that photo is not a good one. She is not only fat, but homely. She looks sortof like an angry construction worker with a mullet. bad combo. Not sure that they'd let her up there even if she was slimmer.

No sympathy for this idiot.

If you're fat, take farking responsibility for it. You can't tie-dye your head and then sue because they won't let you be a L'oreal spokesmodel.

that was my nickname in highschool: Stop co-opting ideas like "discrimination," "free speech," and "free religion" to mean that you can do as you please and get whatever you want. These ideas have particular meanings; they are not cart blanch excuses to not do your job or pretend you are eye candy when even the brothers have to take a pass.


When correcting people based on usage it is important to be, you know, actually correct.

It is discrimination. Not all forms of discrimination are illegal.

Yeah, good luck with that.
I don't think equal rights amendments quite covered dancing on a bar.

Maybe if she wins I'll sue everybody for discriminating against poor people by having such high prices on their imported cars and cutting edge electronics.

Much as I enjoy the mockery of this individual, where are the enlightened, free thinking and tolerant Farkers to chastise everyone here for their knuckle dragging ignorance and hateful bigotry towards those who are weight-challenged?

These type of comments would not be tolerated in a thread about the mentally ill, alternative sexual lifestyles, or transgendered albinos.

Glad we can still mock fatty with impunity. And vegans.

2012-04-30 10:02:07 AM
She must be new to the dance clubs in Iowa City, this thing happens all the time for anyone the bouncers deem unworthy of dancing on a table, or the little raised mini dance floors Ala Summit.

And good for the bouncers, nobody wants to see that on stage.
 
2012-04-30 10:05:14 AM
Isn't it your friends' job to warn you off trying to do shiat you have no business doing and will only be humiliated for trying?
Not that it's *wrong* that you should want to try, but that it's *inevitable* that you will be humiliated.

Like obsessing about dating people out who are way out of your league. Or trying to climb a streetlight when you're too drunk to walk. Or doing karaoke when your voice sounds like nails on a chalkboard. Or trying to get up onto a club platform when you do not look remotely like the sort of patron they want to advertise.

It makes no sense that none of those girls tried to spare her the humiliation, yet all of them were willing to pose for TFAs picture.

Unless these were actually pre-planned shenanigans.

In other news, men are discriminated against by bars every night. No men are getting up on those stages (well, at least not at that bar), there's no "men's night", no wet t-shirt contests featuring men. Did I say discriminated against? I meant discriminated for.

Being overweight is a correctable choice for the vast majority. Being mentally ill, gay or trans isn't. You can also make fun of people for liking two and a half men and being ginger.

Me and a group of friends would do this back when we turned 21. Knowing that gutter punk/metal kids have no place among the big breasted, bronzed bimbo's of college bars, we would do it just to piss everyone off. It's amazing what makes a "bro" angry. Usually just before getting kicked out, we would flood the urinals. It was a glorious night when one of us figured out that if you push the flusher up at a 45 degree angle, the handle would stick and the water would continuously flow. Yes, we were shiatheads.
