Mr. Cat Poop: PallMall: God on him.. why the fark are you buttholes defending the lardo? If she's a fat monster, then she needs to eat less and exercise. Nothing wrong with pointing that out!

I say this as a fat monster; you are 100% correct. The girl is fat, and she needs to lose weight. She should have said "This guy is right. I need to get in shape and be a better role model for young women" She has the chance to do it on tv so others can see that it can be done. And unlike biggest loser or those other shows where people drop 10 pounds every week, she can do it over the course of a year and invite her viewers to do it with her. She missed a chance to turn this into a career boosting segment.


It's still feasible that she could boost her career by losing the weight "in spite of all the adversity she faced from bullies like this guy". She'll have to ride this pity wagon until it's over, then wait a couple months before she makes any effort, to make sure everybody knows his hurtful truths didn't change anything.
That would be disingenuous, but better than just staying fat and making excuses.

SilentStrider: Hey douchebag. You got your ass handed to you. Put your tail between your legs and crawl back into your cave.


No, he did't. He had a legitimate claim and fatty's (he never called her fat and used sensitive language... but she's a tub of cheese curds) and her response was a whiny veneer of deflection over a hurt realization that he's right. And his reponse is more than appropriate. It's good advicee, he was trying to help, and he's an excellent role model.

meanmutton: In the long run, the percentage of people who can lose more than 10-15% of their body weight and keep it off is statistically insignificant. Tons of research has been done on this. They all come to the same conclusion.


That's why it's critical to have good role models and be very careful about the messages we send to children. Getting that fat and thinning out is much harder work than just not getting fat in the first place.
Just like recovering drug addicts, fat people can be role models by working hard to maintain or achieve the same quality of life that the rest of us take for granted

stonicus: MoeSzyslak: stonicus: MoeSzyslak: stonicus: mjbok: Indubitably: Why do you defend demeaning another human being?

I'm not. I said (several times) that what he did wasn't nice, wasn't necessary, etc. Why do you defend publicly shaming someone from a position of power from what was a private email giving an opinion?

It was a private eail in the context of her most public job. If he had just said "you're fat and a bad role-model for your daughters" you woul dhave a point. But he framed in the context of her job as a public news broadcaster. He put it in the realm of being public.

I can't tell if you sound confused or fat. You're fat and confused right? If I'm wrong you win a cupcake. Hopefully I'm wrong, right?

I hate cupcakes.
Not confused or fat.
What are you confused by? He attacked her position as a TV personality. Her TV personality responded.
If you don't want to get called out publicly for being a douche, don't antagonize someone who has a TV show in which to call you out on.

Is being a fat body a good example to set for one's daughters or the public? It was a valid criticism in a private email and she attentioned whored it to the public and played victim like it's not her fault she's fat. Does fat equate black or gay or a kid with zits for that matter? Of course not , attention whore wants a turkey leg and some attention. This whole thing is bullshiat and she knows it. What some assshole wanted her to live longer and be in better shape? MY GOD THE NERVE. Face it she's a fat bully who did her best to ruin some guy's life because she can't accept the fact that she's a shiatty parent because she's fat? FAT MOM IS FAT AND IS A TERRIBLE ROLE MODEL BECAUSE SHE'S FAT. YOU'RE LOVIN' IT.

Yeah, her health and well being was his motivation... =P
I don't disagree that she is overweight. But he attacked her as her role as a TV personality. That TV personality responded. What's the problem with that? If she had went on the air complaining about a letter her ne ...


Motivation or not that was the net result of his criticism. Heaven forbid she get healthy as a result of criticism. Holy shiat she didn't eat two entrees!! She might get into shape and we can't have that!!

LadyHawke: MeanJean: Why, of course he's right. Its not like overweight people (particularly girls) are stigmatized under any pressure to lose weight. And my goodness, there certainly are very few thin role models for girls out there.

/fark you Krause

Fat people should be so ashamed of themselves that they go into hiding. That's basically what I feel the guy was getting at.... she's fat, and therefore does not deserve her job (regardless of how talented or smart she is).


That's not what his PRIVATE e-mail said. At all.

And apparently he's local and watches that news program, and has for years. He's watched her get fat. She mentions she's "struggled with her weight" since a pregnancy. Most likely she continued to eat and remain sedentary as if she was still pregnant.

He WATCHED her do this TO HERSELF. And she blames him for merely pointing out that SHE'S DOING IT WRONG!

Fat people choose to keep eating and inner city blacks choose to keep killing each other. Go ahead and tell me that's not the case with either.  Put the guns and forks down.

I feel i should send an email to this guy and let him know i can teach him hout to work out other parts of his body so as to be in proportion. He's doing way to much arm work and not enough on his chest or shoulders. Also i can point him to a plastic surgeon to fix that noggin of his 'cause DAMN it looks like his neck just threw up. He should really consider more steroids to even things out because I'd hate for the kids to think walking around with a disproportionate body and an ugly melon is okay.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: ShannonKW: ggecko: He sends her a private email, she goes all global with it (while also admitting she is fat). Then she tries the angle of being "bullied".

If you read what he wrote (privately) and see her public response, I tend to side with him on this one.

Yep.

There's a difference between a public and private insult. She's responsible for making this public, not he. If she disapproved of his message, all she had to do was reply with a "fark you", click the delete button, and no one would have heard about it.

What she seems to be trying to accomplish by making this public is to persuade a lot of her sympathizers among the public to form a big pack and bark at him for being mean; or in other words she wants revenge on him and is using other people to get it. This sort of tactic -- surrounding yourself with your friends, who yell at your enemy for you and comfort you for the bad thing he said -- is familiar to anyone who remembers how high school girls behaved, and she should be more ashamed of using it than of being fat.  Worse than a fatty, she's a spineless wuss who can't face down detractors on her own, even via email.

She's also usurping the anti-bullying trend to deflect the critique levied against her. She's hurting the anti-bullying cause by falsely claiming she's being bullied. It's disgusting.


And she's doing it by ullying him, and encouraging other to bully him. She's like some voluminous mass of bully.

If she was really good she wouldn't still be in the LaCrosse market after 10 years. LaCrosse is market 127, which means (even as an anchor) she is making very little money. If you're not moving from market to market (going up) every 3-5 years, you're doing it wrong.

//Of course she might like a market of that size.

TanHamster: mudpants: cyclist

This story has been about cyclists ever since the guy posed behind his mountain bike, wearing kneepads and elbow pads. This guy substantiates my long-held belief that dudes with "gym muscles" are the furthest thing from masculine. If you sit at a desk under fluorescent lights all day, no amount of time spent lifting weights under even more fluorescent lights is going to make you manly. Just embrace your effeminacy, and stop embarassing yourself.

/Overweight, but not by much.
//Also a below-knee amputee, but can run further than most people with two good legs, thanks to the Ertl procedure.
///Also a misanthrope.


As a cyclist who volunteers at a bike co-op but doesn't mountain bike or street race I'll have to let you know that you just said some really stupid shiat. I guess I'll explain: MOUNTAIN BIKING IS DANGEROUS, AND SO IS STREET RACING! Hell, he should have a face shield and a mouth guard. It can be worse than hockey.

In many ways this is already happening. Try being over 50 and looking for a job.

Guys, we weren't born to specifically give you an erection.


And God help you if you try to change it either. If your chest is as flat as board = ewwwww body like a 12 year old boy. Get implants = ewwww fake tits are nasty. I'm sure if she lost the weight every farker in here would be claiming she looked better "curvy" and then bemoan the loss of her tits or something.

All thing being said she is an AW, he a jerk but all she is doing is giving him free publicity. That letter should have stayed private. I know it hurts but airing this stuff just gives RL trolls fuel for the fire. I should know, I've had my naturally skinny frame and small chest held against me my whole life and trust me, people say nasty shiat when they are not talking to you face to face. If you don't give them the attention they want in real life, while it won't stop, at least you deny them the drama they want so badly.


I like petite girls and A cups are fine by me. If you literally have no breasts very few people would begrudge you getting implants; the mockery comes when small girls get cantaloupes shoved in front of their rib cage.

////I'm guessing people are pretty snarky toward you and behind your back but it's got nothing to do with your skinny body or breasts. Check your fark handle.

PillsHere: I can't for the life of me figure out why other people care if a stranger is fat. The only situations where I can understand caring is if it's someone you love and you are concerned about their health, or it is your significant other and you are superficial enough to care about them putting on weight. At that point you might have a reason to talk to them about their weight and try and encourage them to lose weight for the sake of their health or your relationship. Okay, I could also see if you're on an airplane and they are flowing over into your seat. Otherwise, there is really no reason why it should be anyone's business nor do I understand why anyone would care.


So, no doctor should ever publish a report about healthy living and ask other to disemenate it?

No teacher should ever proctor a health class?

It's a matter of public health, and a matter of community. You know: helping others even if you don't know them. She's an ungrateful biatch.

Agreed.

If anyone was the bully in this scenario, it was her. She used a public forum to publicly shame someone for sending her an email that was partial opinion (bad role model) and partial fact (she is overweight by her own admission). Should he have sent it, probably not. Her reaction to it was much worse than what he originally did and she used her power to publicly shame and embarrass someone. That is much more of a bully move than sending a private email that says I think you would be a better role model if you weren't unhealthily overweight.

You are moronic.


I was unaware that reasonable conclusions were moronic.

The long view on this is America is getting fatter and will continue getting fatter until we stop shoveling crap food in our mouths and do more physical activity.

66 F*CKING PERCENT of America is overweight. Half of that is overweight and obese.

She lost points when she called what he wrote her bullying. That wasn't bullying.

Perhaps she framed it wrong: advertising frames your eating habits, no? Your body image? How you identify? Biology is a huge factor, but we live in a society framed in consumption; how could we not be fat?

However, when society fails, which is coming, btw, your priorities will change.

You will reorient, as it were.

And you will understand.

P.S. "society fails" is subjective.

2012-10-04 10:59:24 AM

Shark Bait Whoo Ha Ha: She had three fundamental points. First, was that it was a form of bullying, plain and simple. His comments also offered nothing in regards to constructive critism of her ability to perform her job as a news anchor. He said she was a bad community role model because she was obese and on TV.

It is clear that his words- especially as a lawyer and member of the Bar- were mean-spirited, sexist, unethical, and unprofessional.

Two, since the month of October has been deemed "Anti-Bullying Month" she (and her co-workers ) were correct to assert that "the incident" and actions of said bully was relative to address in the media and on-air, to not only call out and highlight this as an example of bullying, but to use it as a teachable moment that bullying is a learned behavior and the gateway of destruction and chaos it can cause to the masses: especially women and young children.

Third, as a parent of three young girls, she stated had to show leadership and strength to her children and others in her community by standing up to the bully for herself and on behalf of others being bullied. She pleaded that children learn to bully by example from adults in their lives. Then they go to school and bully others children and adult teachers. It's a cycle of abuse that begins with name-calling and shaming that leads to domestic violence and discrimination and often, hate-crimes, rape, murder, and suicide.

Sure, as human beings , we are taught to just turn the other cheek and deal with it. But that is how bullying is tolerated and festers and explodes in society. Bullies are then not held accountable for their actions. She was holding him accountable for his choice of behavior- his actions and his words; there were consequences.

Her point was that there are ramifications from bullying and that his actions and others just like him are toxic and harmful. It was not about one email or snide comment.

She also took the time to plead with anyone being bullied to not allow yourself be defined by the words and actions of bullies, but to be strong for yourself and defend yourself. She asked to see the hope and actions of the majority of good, supporting, people with dignity and integrity in our society. But cautioned that we are each responsible for our behavior, actions, and words.

I commend her. I thought it was brave and more people who have that kind of public access should stand up for one another in our society.


"She also took the time..."

To instruct impressionable peoplle to brush off valid criticism and continue engaging in self-destructive behaviors.

Subsequent episodes of Intervention and Hoarders should be interesting.

I created this alt just for this thread: TOSViolation: DoBeDoBeDo: Nutritionist on the radio brought it up this morning but it's a valid point. Why is it acceptable to confront an alcoholic, or a drug user for what they are doing to themselves but NOT to do the same to a morbidly obese person (and she might say "some doctors chart" but she's morbidly obese on any chart...well maybe not Hutteese but any chart on Earth).

They are essentially destroying themselves in a similar manner, so why is it not acceptable to call them on it?


It is perfectly acceptable. There are simply a disproportionate amount of people in the world who want to live in denial.

Smoking is EVIL, therefore we can bully the Hell out of smokers without feeling bad about it!
Drinking is EVIL, therefore we can bully the Hell out of alcoholics without feeling bad about it!

Being fat is a sign of strength of character that people should be applauded for, based on their courage to be comfortable with who they are, you ASSHOLE!

Smoking is potentially harmful to the people around the smoker. No one got cancer from standing next to the fat guy.
Drinking leads to all sorts of potentially harmful behaviors. You never hear about someone getting beat up because the other person was fat, or someone got killed because they were hit by a driver who was too fat.

Also, not everyone who is fat has a choice in the matter. Yes, I know it's like 1%, but people still have to make the choice to start smoking or drinking, while there are some people who are fat for reasons entirely beyond their control. So giving the fat chick shiat for being a porker might result in everyone hating you for being an insensitive ass-nugget when it turns out she has Hypothyroidism or Cushing's syndrome.

Finally, when you factor in our society's obsession with wanting women to be underweight (trust me, your average Victoria's Secret model or Hollywood starlet is not at a healthy weight), you've got a whole "fark you and your unreasonable expectations for women's bodies" sentiment building these days.

It may not be "fair" but that's why it's socially acceptable to give shiat to smokers and drinkers, but not fat people.


Being a fatty requires eating more than your fair share, diminishing stock and raising costs of food for everyone else.

So being a fatty DOES harm others.

Not to mention skewing healthcare costs.

AutumnWind: Huggermugger: serial_crusher: Huggermugger: Why is it that so many men find unattractive women to be a personal affront to them. They just can't ignore such a person, but rather find offense and get peeved about it.

Guys, we weren't born to specifically give you an erection.

Guy tells you to live a healthy lifestyle and perform regular maintenance on your body, and you turn it into a sexual thing. A little presumptuous, are we?

Guys don't tell other guys that they're monsters unless they live a healthy lifestyle and blahblahblah. Women don't tell guys they they're monsters unless blahblahblah. But guys are horrified about fat women. Yes, it is completely a sexual thing.

I read somewhere that when it comes to blind dates men's number one fear tends to be that the woman will be fat. And the girl's tends to be that she'll be murdered or attacked.

Guys just don't get it. They don't have to deal with having their body picked apart the way women do. They don't have to wonder if they should wear something that covers them more even though it's hot because they might be harassed. They don't have to wonder if they should dress down when doing to meet their sweetheart because people assume the girl is dressing up to show off to the planet and needs to have her appearence noted to her. They aren't throwing up their food because of comments like the ones here in this thread which make girls afraid of eating. It's not rare for girls' to get comments no matter how they look or what they do. You're pretty? I need to tell you. You're ugly? You need to know this since you obviously don't know and being attractive is your job. You're upset somebody talked badly about how you look? You must be a biatch since this is most likely an event that almost never happens to you at all and isn't a huge problem for girls. Don't like freaky street harassment? That's crazy because you should be flattered! Just make sure your boobs are big, but natural. And don't wear make up, but have perfect skin. Realize that being seen in public while not being sexually attractive and fit is bad for young girls. Just letting men decide how you look and what you eat and do is probably your best bet.


Yeah, they only have to deal with their personality already judged without ever saying a word, to the point where we're all psychotic murdeering, raping sociopaths.

Hey, maybe being fat is rape protection...
 
2012-10-04 11:17:44 AM
Let me get this straight. He sent a fairly polite private email to someone in the public eye, whose job partially depends on people liking her enough to tune in. Her thin-skinned husband posts the letter publicly, and then she talks about how mean the email was during the news. Talk about weak-willed or flat out deluded.

Methinks he actually hit a nerve with her and she, and hubby, blew it out of proportion, knowing we live in such a sad society many will rush over to stroke her hair and coo "there, there, sweet thing" in her ear.

The lawyer is right, was polite in a private email, and should be admired for doubling down. She's fat and on TV, which is plain gross. And now the world knows she's also thin-skinned and whiney.
 
2012-10-04 11:22:25 AM
Until today, I had not read anything about this issue but have seen numerous posting on Facebook about her response to the viewer email. I assumed that his original email was, at the very least, mean and insensitive.

After catching up on the whole story, I am surprised. His email was not anywhere near as mean as it could have been. I am surprised that she even felt the need to go on air with this. Seems like a little bit of overkill to me. Although it was not his business to point out that she was overweight, she could just have let it alone or answered him in private.

With that said, I did notice that all of the people that posted this on my Facebook timeline are all as fat as her.

Lady Indica: How much mail did Al Roker get about being a fatty? Or any other male reporter.

Yeah.

That attorney is a douchenozzle.


A lot.

Some with Rush Limbaugh and Marlon Brando and Orson Wells and John Goodman...

Need I go on?

alice_600: DoBeDoBeDo: Nutritionist on the radio brought it up this morning but it's a valid point. Why is it acceptable to confront an alcoholic, or a drug user for what they are doing to themselves but NOT to do the same to a morbidly obese person (and she might say "some doctors chart" but she's morbidly obese on any chart...well maybe not Hutteese but any chart on Earth).

They are essentially destroying themselves in a similar manner, so why is it not acceptable to call them on it?

If it is family then yes they have the right to say something if it's a complete stranger then No it's not your place to say it. Also I have to say as someone who is battling being fat herself and it's not easy. I was given bad habits by my family food and exercise wise. It's a difficult habit to undo around family who still have these bad habits. My grandmother started to make me believe i was fat when I began puberty and my thighs started to get bigger. She would talk obsessively about weight loss and bought book after book on losing weight. and made me a teenager wear stretch top jeans and got me old ladies clothing to wear to school. Looking back at my pictures I was fine I wasn't skinny mini but I was fine. She also had Anorexia that wasn't diagnosed until she was admitted to a nursing facility.

It's not easy to lose weight when you come home from school crying because people steal your things, call you names and push you into lockers. When the people who you thought were your friends secretly call names and then one day chase you into a bathroom and spit on you sprain your ankle while they beat on you and when you tell the adults they say "Well shouldn't have done this or that then," then suspended.
You then start self medicating our depression with food. Food doesn't judge you, food doesn't care who I am it's the greatest thing in the world. Neither does t.v. T.v. doesn't have coaches yell at me when I can't run fast enough (I never was good at sports or anything physical as a child even before I was over weight) or can't throw a ball or kick strait. I'm not athletic by a long shot and why should I be? Fat people are too stupid and lazy and that's what I am to everyone else a black sheep everyone looks down at. Who's boyfriend dated me as a joke who lied and raped me. Who got away with it because"You're too fat to be raped."


You sound emotionally weak.

And fat.

Guess who was bullied? Me. Guess who just told them to go fark themselves? Me. Sometimes I would fight back, others I would take the hits, then just stand right back up. fark em.

You are your own worst enemy. You not only let it happen, you gave in to doing it to yourself. Get some self esteem, please.

Based on those uber-cool knee and elbow pads he's sportin, I'd say it's a given.

HotWingAgenda: alice_600: old native American prayer: Oh Great Sprit never let me judge a man till I have walked a mile in his moccasins .

You do realize the concept of a mile is not Native American, right?


Wise Savage fallacy.

Her point is using this an example of not letting others opinion determine your self worth. She knows she's big. She admits it. But this guy also expressed his concern that she's not a good role model for females. This obviously strikes a nerve with Jennifer, being a mother of three. Educated, well spoken, a leader in the community, puts in countless hours in an effort to better those living here via charitable organizations - why look up to someone like that?

In her early facebook postings to others in the community before this blew up - I live in the area - she didn't want to turn this into an event where everyone shiats on this man as she tried to keep his identity hidden. But word got out and now major media outlets are outing him as a result.

This is another example of don't believe everything that can be fit into a one sentence headline or shortened into an article which doesn't state all the facts.

chopit: He's a dick, she's lazy. Can we please talk about things that matter for once?


You don't understand your role in the bread and circuses equation.

On the other hand, this was the best comment:

"This whole thing appears to concern two people who nobody cares about arguing over something that nobody cares about. Why are they still getting press (I mean besides the anchor, since she can give herself press)? "

Mr. Cat Poop: PallMall: God on him.. why the fark are you buttholes defending the lardo? If she's a fat monster, then she needs to eat less and exercise. Nothing wrong with pointing that out!

I say this as a fat monster; you are 100% correct. The girl is fat, and she needs to lose weight. She should have said "This guy is right. I need to get in shape and be a better role model for young women" She has the chance to do it on tv so others can see that it can be done. And unlike biggest loser or those other shows where people drop 10 pounds every week, she can do it over the course of a year and invite her viewers to do it with her. She missed a chance to turn this into a career boosting segment.


All for butthurt and 15 minutes of internet fame that have turned her into the villian. Which she is.

meanmutton: In the long run, the percentage of people who can lose more than 10-15% of their body weight and keep it off is statistically insignificant. Tons of research has been done on this. They all come to the same conclusion.


That's because they fall back into old habits and vices. It's hard to change a personality.

Thanks for helping me catch up on this - your explanation of how this all played out makes more sense to me now. Up until this morning, all I knew is that someone called this woman fat and she took to the airwaves to biatch him out.
 
2012-10-04 11:54:44 AM
It was awfully presumptuous of him. Would he have pointed it out to her in person, rather than over the Internet?

I almost wish she had some kind of medical condition (e.g. actually pregnant or needed steroids) that caused her to be fat. Why should he judge her?
 
2012-10-04 11:56:25 AM
He's a douchebag, but she is a fat farking whale who needs to weight. Now though she's using her bully pulpit in the media to go after him over a private email, so I'm siding with the attorney here. They're both miserable excuses for humans, but if they fight to the death I hope the attorney wins.

/I'm pretty sure he would, unless he was slathered in BBQ beforehand and it put her in a feeding frenzy

stonicus: MoeSzyslak: stonicus: MoeSzyslak: stonicus: mjbok: Indubitably: Why do you defend demeaning another human being?

I'm not. I said (several times) that what he did wasn't nice, wasn't necessary, etc. Why do you defend publicly shaming someone from a position of power from what was a private email giving an opinion?

It was a private eail in the context of her most public job. If he had just said "you're fat and a bad role-model for your daughters" you woul dhave a point. But he framed in the context of her job as a public news broadcaster. He put it in the realm of being public.

I can't tell if you sound confused or fat. You're fat and confused right? If I'm wrong you win a cupcake. Hopefully I'm wrong, right?

I hate cupcakes.
Not confused or fat.
What are you confused by? He attacked her position as a TV personality. Her TV personality responded.
If you don't want to get called out publicly for being a douche, don't antagonize someone who has a TV show in which to call you out on.

Is being a fat body a good example to set for one's daughters or the public? It was a valid criticism in a private email and she attentioned whored it to the public and played victim like it's not her fault she's fat. Does fat equate black or gay or a kid with zits for that matter? Of course not , attention whore wants a turkey leg and some attention. This whole thing is bullshiat and she knows it. What some assshole wanted her to live longer and be in better shape? MY GOD THE NERVE. Face it she's a fat bully who did her best to ruin some guy's life because she can't accept the fact that she's a shiatty parent because she's fat? FAT MOM IS FAT AND IS A TERRIBLE ROLE MODEL BECAUSE SHE'S FAT. YOU'RE LOVIN' IT.

Yeah, her health and well being was his motivation... =P
I don't disagree that she is overweight. But he attacked her as her role as a TV personality. That TV personality responded. What's the problem with that? If she had went on the air complaining about a letter her neighbor had written her claiming her to be a bad role model for her children, I would be on your side 100%. But if you write to the people on TV, they can respond to you on TV.


He didn't do it on the TV. I get what you're attempting to say, but you are confused. He did it privately. Her husband took it to a public forum, and they ran with it for ratings.

And his motivation was for the health of EVERYONE. He PRIVATELY asked her to influence EVERYONE TO LIVE HEALTHY LIFESTYLES.

The monster.
