FizixJunkee: I worked with a girl who weighed over 300 lbs. She was relatively young (mid-20s) and childless (in fact, a virgin....oh, she was super religious, too) so there was no reason for her to be so fat.

Most days, I brought my lunch from home, but every once in a while, I'd forget lunch, so I'd head over to Wendy's across the street. A typical lunch from Wendy's for me would have been some sort of salad (with sparse amounts of vinaigrette dressing) and an unsweetened iced tea (no artificial sweeteners, either).

On several occasions, my fattie co-worker would be there, too. The amounts of food she ate, and the amount of soda she drank, were mind-boggling. She'd have two burgers, a large order of french fries, and one of those gigantic, 44 ounce cups of soda...with no ice. Too much ice meant too little room for soda.

And did I mention she drank soda all day long at work? From 8AM to 5PM every day, she had a soda in her hand.

Here's the kicker: one day, Fattie remarked (with obvious frustration) that it was so hard to lose weight, and that her weight problem clearly had a genetic component. Her evidence that her weight issue was her genes' fault and not the fault of her eating habits: "You eat fast food just like I do, and you're not fat!"

I didn't have the fortitude to explain to her that I didn't eat fast food nearly as often as the does, and when I do, I made very different food choices...


When I was in high school, I used to down, from Wendy's, 2 3/4 lb burgers, a spicy chicken sandwich, a 5 piece chicken nuggets, large soda and large fry. And I graduated high school at 115 lb (5'8"). I was so thin my doctor wanted me to try and gain weight at any cost, so I figured that meant go to town on fast food. Thankfully, I have a normal metabolism now.

goorange: I understand that obese people are different and deserve to die, so we should shun and punish them.


Obvious troll, but I'll bite (no pun intended) anyway.

The issue isn't that she's fat. The issue is that she's a coont deliberately trying to sue a bar because she got offended, even when it seems the bouncer did his best to spare her feelings initially by telling her in a tactful way. Then she went back and deliberately tried to bait them into telling her something that she could sue over. Fark her, she's not some crusader for acceptance, she deserves to be shamed for being an AW.

They should have let her on the platform.
After it collapsed, she could have claimed "It's just a stage I'm going through".

Might not be relevant, my husband still has one of those insane metabolisms. Over 40 and no sign of slowing down.

Now he's got an active job so now he needs to eat even more.

And he gets tired of pasta quickly.

Oy.

machoprogrammer: FTA
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.

So Iowa City has a "Human Rights Commission"? Is that like the Canadian version of the same thing?

And how the hell is them saying you are too fat to be an attention whore a violation of your human rights?

Grow some thicker skin, unless it is thick and already stretched over your mass, in which case, lose some weight.


yeah, great, give them ideas...used to be "big boned" now girls will say they are just "thick skinned".

FTFA:

"He said, 'You're not pretty enough and you're pregnant.' I said, 'I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that I am not pregnant.' He then looked at my stomach and said, 'You obviously are.' They knew I was not pregnant; it was there way of calling me fat without having to actually say it," Ramos said.

Interesting yahoo got the they're right but not the their.

Not really.

Black people where so annoying when they kept going to resturants that clearly said whites only

So annoying when they used the courts to force white people to let them eat wherever they want

But fat people just need to die, they are so gross and awful, why can't they just be fat somewhere else

Your argument is absurd.

Instead of requiring that society change and embrace the consequences of *your* personal choices, perhaps it would be more effective for *you* to change in order to conform to society's norms.

Lollipop165: 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).

Pretentious clubs suck.


Two points:

1) Lawyers aren't exactly respected

2) Unsure if it's pretentious to tally up the white-collar friends you rub elbows with, but I've met lawyers who can't spell, doctors that are incredible douches, and countless business professionals that exaggerate their value to "once saved the world" levels of blowhard-dom, so I don't equate them with anything to inflate status. I would've taken your other friend over the divas, x 1000. Too tired to rant on.

I'm a fat chick who spent most weekends in punk/goth/house clubs all over the world...one at a time, smart asses.

I have some great stories -- but CSB for another time.

From the FTA, waaah -- fat chick can't get up on the stage? Geezus, fat chick -- who the fark cares? It's attention whores up there and if you want a hot guy, he's down on the floor anyway and will think you're a loser attention whore if you're up on stage anyway. Farking cool fat chicks never have a difficult time getting laid, regardless of what guys on Fark will try to make you believe.

I live about 45 minutes from Iowa City and this of course made the local news. Apparently she is planning a protest on Friday night...could be amusing.

And for those of you asking if that hambeast and her friends are representative of what Iowa has to offer, the answer is no. We can do much, MUCH worse.

Oh, and we have some prettier gals around here too.

I sat on my ass all day, playing video games (minus gym class). Every now and then I would lift weights, but nothing big.

I would like to serve as an expert witness for the defense: "I went to this bar in town and was generally enjoying myself until this woman got up on stage, and she looked as if she were on meth, and she started dancing. It was not in rhythm at all. This I can live with. But then, she decided to show us her mosquito-bite methboobs, and I think I saw track marks on the boobs. And, I had to leave then. Night over. This proves that ugly/fat people on stage hurt business. In conclusion, I sentence fatty over there to six months of no-pints-of-ice-cream-every-night prison for wasting our time and for being ugly."

At which point the judge laughs and dismisses the case.

If she is pushing this publicity thing by having a rally, then someone needs to give up her email so that the 99%+ of us farkers can tell her how asinine and stupid she is being. She is a self entitled college brat.
DO NOT WANT POSTER GIRL made a lot of sense.
 
2012-05-01 06:48:56 PM
As someone who dances on platforms and stages a few times a year, I am in full support of not letting ugly fatties do the same.
