Ted Kennedy's Brain Tumor: Submitted First With a Better Headline: I'm glad we can all sit around and hate on fat girls. There's nothing worse than a girl whose existence isn't justified by my finding her attractive.

Seriously, you guys are assholes. Some people are fat, and that sucks for them, but it doesn't make them lesser people.

Yes, yes it does.


I"m convinced he made that post just to see how many people would make the obvious joke

it just doesn't make sense... i assume you wouldn't eat a third of the cake if they actually wanted to share, so even if they cut you a 1/8 piece, they would each get to enjoy 7/16 ths of a cake which is damn near half. so they aren't just gluttunous (sp?), they are greedy and rude as well. conclusion: find cooler people to spend time with

Ramos said she waited until a few girls left, and again tried to go up. She was stopped again, which she said prompted her to ask, "What is the difference between the other girls up there and myself?"

"There was only one difference: I am a plus-sized individual. The bouncer said 'Look, you will never get up on this platform. Go back to the dance floor where you belong,'" Ramos told ABC News.



Oh God, I wish my computer could transmit a punch to the face. I hate people who speak in meaning-devoid, feel-good euphemism.

Also,

"I am a plus-sized individual."

that was my nickname in highschool: Madbassist1: It makes you look stupid when you use words that you can't spell, even if you use them correctly.

No it doesn't. It makes me look like I have better things to do. You want to know the value of spell checking? $0. My phone does it for free, which is why it dropped the "e." I'm sure it'll make you wildly successful, though.


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.

Dropping an "e" is not the only problem with "cart blanch".

You look even dumber now. Congrats!

Oh, I know there are several issues indicated in the story. They're very nice people, but they definitely have their problems. After I tried to be a good friend and mentioned something about her over-eating and portion sizes, our friendship cooled off. She took the victim role very well and hasn't changed anything about her life, but that's her choice.

She met a very nice man at over-eater's anonymous and they make each other quite happy. They still eat just as much as they ever did, and if anything seem almost proud of how much food they can cram down.

Her father (the same size as the rest of the family) just recently died from a massive heart attack at age 53. I really hope it awakens her to the dangers of obesity, but somehow I doubt it.

I'm in my early 30's now, and feel totally out of place in clubs. But that didn't stop 2 friends of mine from taking me to a high end club as an after party for my bachelorette party. We were all dressed to the 9's, and all very pretty. Except for one of my high school friends, who is a bit.. um.. plain.. and since she was from out of town, not dressed in a way that is expected of NYC nightlife. Very long story short, but the bouncer (who one of my friends KNEW) wouldn't let us in unless we ditched her. He even offered us a table and a free bottle if we ditched her. We left the club, but I didn't really understand why at the time. I didn't care; I was more than happy to leaveand go someplace more low key.

I'm VERY happy my friends didn't tell me the reason for leaving until the next morning. I would have made such a stink to the bouncer. 3 lawyers, 2 doctors, and 3 business professionals, all as gorgeous as anyone could expect, and we were being denied due to what the bouncer referred to as "the mom" (my out of town friend, who is one of the dearest people in my life).

Lollipop165: Pretentious clubs suck.


Yeah, how dare they have a business model that relies on maintaining a self-chosen aesthetic?

After all, you and everyone else have a right to have every private business cater to you, right? They're not allowed to self-select at all, are they?

How do you feel about restaurants that want only quiet conversation, or that have a dress code?

What about places like McDonalds that don't want adults in the play area?

Businesses aren't required to make everyone happy. Being unattractive, for whatever reason, obviously isn't exactly the same as any other issue, but the basic right of a business is to exclude customers they don't want (so long as they don't discriminate unconstitutionally). They don't "suck" for doing so any more than individual people "suck" for not being attracted to those people.

Your friend wasn't/isn't "bad" for not being their target audience, but they have a right to preserve their business model. Or do you think their actual target audience wouldn't notice someone unattractive in the room? How slow do you think people are to leave a club that seems "uncool"?
 
2012-04-30 12:02:55 PM
I'm sorry, but fark that fat biatch. It's not illegal and really, she needs a bit of public shaming because she's an unapologetic fatass. Is it embarrassing to be kicked off the stage like that? Sure it is. That stage is provided by the bar not so that you can promote yourself but for the BAR to promote itself. If you step on that stage, you are the volunteer entertainment and as anyone who has been on a stage knows, there is always the possibility of getting the hook.

So shut the hell up, fatty. You and your friends don't have a right to be special. You DO, however, have a right to not go to that bar ever again.

Then don't go to them. They are catering to a clientele that is looking to be at the hip club full of beautiful, well dressed people. The club makes their money by maintaining that atmosphere. I find it all rather stupid, so I avoid such places. But god bless them if that's what they want. They are a private business.

They can do what they like. The fact of the matter is, they've lost my business.

I never said that. I just think it is stupid that they would.

How do you feel about restaurants that want only quiet conversation, or that have a dress code?


Those are actions, not looks. My friend was in a dress so she was dressed appropriately. Admittedly not chic at all, but she was appropriate.


What about places like McDonalds that don't want adults in the play area?


Are you kidding me with this?

Um.. that's why we left. And that's why I think that club sucks....

They had no problem letting me and my friends in (and in fact offered us a $500 table for free) so long as we ditch the unattractive girl. Sure that's their prerogative. Doesn't make them suck any less.

I don't go to clubs. Well, I did go to clubs. When I was like 18 and thought they were cool. I have no idea why someone over the age of 25 would go to a club. I had no desire to go that night; one of my doctor friends (who spends her nights off in clubland - you might want to think about that the next time you take your kid to the pediatrician, lol) took us.

I wouldn't say "god bless them" though. Sure its a private business and its their right, but it doesn't make it any less dick-ish. There's a difference between a dress code and saying to someone that they don't have the right to buy a drink at a place because they aren't pretty enough.

One of my fave bars in the world, Campbell Apartment, has a VERY strict dress code. But its a dress code, not a "be cool and attractive OR ELSE" dress code.

I did. She wore a dress. But she's living in Pennsyltucky (as she refers to it) and isn't quite up to date on current styles. I did my best to help her out (she was staying over my place) but she just wasn't comfortable in super tall high heels and such.

Not true. People shouldn't biatch because they are excluded. I am not going to sue Levi Strauss because I can't fit in a size 32 anymore. If I went to a club and saw some pork beast shaking her ass up on the bar I wouldn't care but if I owned the bar I would. She needs to drop it and go be fat somewhere else.

Actually, I think they were kind.

They chose to echo what the bar was saying instead of just wishing she would DIAF.

The bar was saving her dignity. Can you imagine what the other patrons would have done had she been allowed to dance? I am just guessing that the laughing would have come from the nice people.
