WTF? The article doesn't even mention or even speculate on her actual weight.

Cyno01: How about the bar institute a chubby ladies night. Fat chicks drink half off. Then you've got a bunch of drunk chicks with low self esteem. Everybody wins.

/well, the chubby chasers anyway...
/nttawwt


Oh man, do what the heart attack grill does.

Get a scale and everyone over 170 (female) drinks for 1/2 off. Then you blindfold all the males so no one knows who's in there because that's embarrassing when you wake up next to a tub of goo the next morning
 
2012-05-01 12:28:41 PM

umad: Fall also said employees were encouraged to watch black patrons more closely, and that men were not allowed to dance on the platform.

But it is the sensitive fatties who are the real victims here. If I lived in Iowa City, I would be parking a hot-dog cart in front of this bar to make a killing support the protest.


There's actually an Italian Beef cart just outside and it is farking amazing after 10 or 12 drinks. Ask for it extra spicy

missiv: Fark the Union. Are they still selling 21 pitchers for 21 bucks on your 21st birthday? If the fat chick doesn't kill someone, the binge drinking will pick up the slack.


Yes they are, my best friend and 2 of us managed the whole thing a few years ago.

Harry Freakstorm: Not to sound offensive, but who is she going to complain to when she climbs up there and gets booed by the drunks?


Interesting. Maybe next time they should let her dance and let the patrons vote.

Then again the problem might be that they don't boo but they do leave.

Build a dancing platform that hold no more than 150#.
Put up a sign that says "this platform will hold no more than 150#. "
Insure the fark out of the platform. Like 1 million dollars.
When tub of fun breaks it, SUE HER FAT ASS INTO OBLIVION.
Sue her so hard she hasn't any snack money left.
Sure her thin.

Personally I like chicks that are a curvy and soft. A couple of the best lays I ever had were about 40# or so overweight and well-proportioned (a 40" waist comparatively skinny on this big gal in Chicago), and my hot slut girlfriend when we were 14 had a cute little beer gut already. If you're naturally thin that's fine, but women who starve and exhaust themselves are too damn high-maintenance and vain to be any good at sex. And adult women's butt are supposed to be big and round: 10 year old boys just don't turn me on.

"You're supposed to let go and let Davy, not worry what some frat boy might think when he sees it on Youtube. We ain't in the f*cking Olympics!"
 
2012-05-01 12:39:06 PM
Why apologize? It's not like they have feelings. Well, technically they do but their buried so deep that it really doesn't count.

Just wanted to make sure issue an apologize was mentioned.
 
2012-05-01 12:53:12 PM
You know, dancing is a form of exercise. Let's go ahead and discourage her from any sort of physical activity anyway, though.
 
2012-05-01 12:55:42 PM
"It's a step in the right direction, but I don't know if I can believe that," she said. "They should publicly apologize to every single person they've done this to and admit that they do discriminate. ... I want it in writing,


in icing, on a cake.
 
2012-05-01 12:55:59 PM
You'd think a land manatee would have thicker skin. Also, this is probably good press for the bar, as they don't let ham beasts up on stage, only hot sorostitutes.
 
2012-05-01 12:57:21 PM
netcentric:

I'm insecure and desperate.....so I'm getting a kick out of some of these replies

I don't give a flying fark, myself. I'm 30# overweight because I'm 49 (metabolism slowed to a crawl around 40), because I'm naturally lazy and because I'd much rather wash down a steak with a beer or three than care what people think.

And anyway I'd had great times with 50 chicks by my 25th birthday -- over the years I had my widdle heart all bwoke by more women than most men say hello to in their lives -- so most of you are rank amateurs and goofy n00bs.

Again: sex is about having fun, not begging for public approval. Grow up and enjoy life while you can.

Bingo. Although it did know what "you're" is.

Wait until she finds out that sometimes better looking women don't have to pay for anything at the bar.

How is this any different from a rope line? Bouncers obviously letting in hot chicks and not the fuglies yet no protests and lawsuits?

Nope, they need to be beaten down again and again until they rise up with their own strength or are crushed under their own weight.
 
2012-05-01 01:35:06 PM
How fat are we talking here? 180-200 is, well, not attractive, but you probably won't put an eye out if you let her dance on a platform at your club. At 250 it's an avalanche scene and chances are good someone's gonna die. Or wish they could.

Everyone is born equal. This drastically changes based on the personal choices they make.

Fat people are unhealthier, they should have to pay more in healthcare taxes if there's universal healthcare. It's simple economics

So, these people are spreading the word and holding a rally saying that this particular night club does not favor displaying overweight women? I can only see this as being a win for the night club.

The owner should thank them for the publicity.

It isn't even that. While I have not seen a pic of her, I don't think it would be a good ideal to ignore the weight limit of a structure. I wouldn't like a big person come crashing down on me as I was trying to enjoy a tasty beverage.

somewhat hefty myself, but I don't want to dance on platforms in clubs

Same bar... is that actually her? Yeah, she's gross looking. Sorry to her, but it's true. If that bothers her she should either learn to ignore people who say it or work on herself. Her friends all look decently attractive, except for the second one from the left.

JohnAnnArbor: At football games at Michigan, occasionally girls would be picked up and passed overhead up several rows (or more).

One young lady I saw picked up was...larger. Not as big as this lady, but not svelte.

The crowd above began to stir. "Put her down---put her down---heifer---heifer...."

I don't know whether the offenders were sent to sensitivity re-education camp or not.


Yeah because it's U of M. All the attractive girls in Michigan go to State.

As you have. Or didn't you know that?

Wanting to feel superior to SOMEBODY is a natural thing. Even my dog does it: he's always had to put up with shiat from my ex, her ferrets and her cat, so I let him be a little bossy with me. E.g., when we go for walks I let him choose the route (within reason) and I don't always stop him from soliciting attention from little girls. (It's cute when he does it.)

And it's perfectly natural that assholishness should accumulate here. If most of us had our druthers we wouldn't be sitting here on the frigging World Wide Web: this shows how powerless most of us are. We can't get the the wife to take a turn at lawn mowing but by golly we can insult each other and gang up on fat chicks.

The answer of course is anarchist communism (link), but the vast majority of you ain't even smart enough to understand what it is or curious enough to educate yourselves about it, let along strong-minded enough to try it out a while -- hence your lives and your society will continue to be just as shiatty as you let them be. If you wanted a better world you'd change it, right?

Whatthefark: The My Little Pony Killer: It's Coyote Ugly though, not Coyote Fat and Ugly...

/her friends were hideous too
//bar should've covered their asses better by denying them too

Coyote BBW?

Seriously though, wait until this fatty jumps up on the stage and breaks a cankle. You just know she'll sue them.


About ten years ago or so I was at my town's one and only bar for a fun night. There was a really fat drunk girl having a great time dancing, until she rolled an ankle. It took 4 or 5 of her skinny friends to help her up. I almost peed my pants laughing at their facial expressions as they struggled with her.

I saw her five years later and she had lost a lot of weight. Still chubby, but pretty cute.

Everyone has issues. The only difference is that the fatties wear their issues on the outside and the skinnies on the inside.

I was having a drink with friends at a bar when VNV Nation started playing. That's when it happened. Suddenly, our table violently shook and our drinks shook (like in the T-Rex scene in Jurassic Park). That's when we turned and saw a gotha-potamos wallowing on it's back like a giant tortoise. Apparently she had really gotten into the music and fell off a 2 foot platform. I felt sort of bad for her, but we couldn't stop laughing. There's nothing funnier than fat people falling down, especially when they start trying to roll themselves so they can get up. I hate saying that because it sounds totally dick, but it's true. The point is, she could have hurt herself or others. This bar didn't want to take the risk, and they shouldn't be protested because of it.

Last week, I was walking behind a fat chick that caught her toe on the edge of the sidewalk as she was trying to step onto it. She ate shiat and then rolled around for like three minutes while a group of bystanders tried to help her up.

It was the highlight of my day.
 
2012-05-01 07:44:14 PM
I have visions of lines outside hip clubs where they weed out too many men, nerds, ugly women. This is nothing new.

Is the change that fat has become a movement with social power?

Every time in the future when I hear a farker whining about how his middle aged wife won't have sex with him anymore, I'm going to think about this thread.

I'm going to think about his wife, who doubtless is feeling insecure about her appearance as she ages, and worries that she doesn't look as cute as she used to--particularly naked.

I'm going to think about what she may have read over his shoulder or overheard him say about fat chicks or about how ridiculous "fat acceptance" is or how "gross" some women look or how women should just "deal with" how cruel and shallow guys can be.

And I'm going to think about his wife not being willing to have sex with him anymore.

And I'm going to remember this thread. And I'm going to think about how sorry I used to be for those guys.

And I'm going to shrug, and figure now maybe I understand a little better.

Whatever her husband says to try to reassure her about how he feels about her cannot undo or override years of general comments about feminine appearance and desirability.

Sure, it doesn't explain all cases---but it just might explain a fair few.

If I was married to some guy and I felt like he was thinking, "I want sex with a skinny 23-year-old, but with the marriage thing all I'm allowed to fark is you, and I'm horny, so I'll settle for you, you old bat." I don't think I would be too eager about farking him, much less giving him a beej.

It man's fault for not having a monogamous nature, and wanting to charm you for the 1000th time to do the same thing with the same person.
Probably goes same for the women, all respect, per your above post. Men don't respect women that don't stick up for themselves.
Still man is a visual creature, and it does not help if the SO lets her figure go too much.
