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.

The douchenozzle's email included something about being a good role model for girls and women.

How about this--she delivers the news in a professional manner and has done so for ten years. How about focusing on the fact that her ability to do her job isn't tied to appearance, gender, religion, sexual preference, country of origin or skin color, but to the basic fact that she is able to do her job, and do it well.

How about finding the lesson that says that ability trumps waist size, and she should be respected for her professional practices rather than her BMI?

This entire thread of people defending this guy is bizarre to me. You can watch the news or whatever and see someone is overweight, but to send an email pointing it out to them? What the fark? People know when they're overweight or even a few pounds overweight. He's just an asshole and any of you defending his actions in emailing a stranger to tell them so, you're also an asshole.

Her job isn't to be a damn role model; her job is to be on television delivering the news. If this man is such a shiat parent (he even says he doesn't watch the channel) that a person's size shapes their child's world-view, you have failed. Grow up.

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.

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.

You can't see my point, that's fine. I see your point, I just don't think it's valid. He sent an unfriendly (not mean, not cruel, etc.) email. That should have been the end of the story. The fact that it is a story at all is on her (and her husband). If you don't like criticism, don't take a job where you are in the public spot light. If the guy had come out and said she was a disgusting fatbody and an embarrassment to her children and she should stop shoveling twinkies into her mouth you might have more of a point. His email was pointed and had an opinion. It wasn't nice, but based on what it could have been she made a mountain out of a molehill and is taking every opportunity to use it to her advantage.

I love how in her anti-bullying rant she mentions how she has three daughters and we need to set an example for them on how bullying is wrong. What kind of example is she setting for her kids by being a fatass who will most likely die in her fifties. She also talks about how appreciative she is of all the positive outreach she has received as if only positive feedback is valid. So apparently if one person sends her some constructive criticism in an email he's an asshole who should be criticized on TV but if five hundred people send her positive feedback it's great and should be celebrated. You can't have it both ways, you have got to accept the good with the bad especially if you choose to be a television personality.

The guy did not bully her. He merely stated that he believed being a fat person on TV every morning sets the bad example that being fat is totally acceptable. We all realize that a person smoking or taking pulls off a flask on a news program would be derided. So some destructive lifestyle choices are okay while others aren't? Also by equating choosing to be fat with race and sexual preference she showed her ass and lost any high ground she might have had. Instead of taking responsibility for her own actions she chose to ridicule a private person for what boils down to looking out for her and her family's best interest. If anyone was a bully in this situation it is her.

With very few exceptions being fat is a lifestyle choice whether people with very little impulse control would like to admit it or not. She lives a terribly unhealthy lifestyle of her own creation and no amount of sanctimonious televised woe is me bullshiat can change that. If she had the thick skin she claims to have in her piece she would have owned up to the fact that she is fat because she chooses to be fat and if he has a problem with that well then tough shiat. Instead she choose to lump herself in with a bunch of genuinely bullied people who have no control over what they are bullied for. Because of that all I have to say about her is that she is a self important, attention whoring, denial ridden, over-eating eating bully who would rather publicly shame a private citizen than accept responsibility for her own behavior and show him up by losing the weight.

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.

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.

How do you know her age and weight (or body fat percentages, etc) to figure out her BMI level of overweight-obese-morbidly obese? Frankly, you sound fat. Maybe it's "eating cheetos and typing in the closet because I can't come out or someone will know fat" type fat - but you definitely have some strong views, man.


Honestly, I was on her side when I first heard about a "viewer harassing a newscaster." Then I saw the video where she read the letter, and I thought, "That's it?" And then she tried to turn it into some bullying issue, and to be honest that's when she lost me. She's a fat attention whore using the bullying topic to defend her poor lifestyle choices.

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.


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.

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've been 60 pounds overweight and I've been toned and athletic. Though I had "good, understandable reasons" for being fat, there was only one thing standing between gross health problems and a slender, healthy body: WORK. It takes a good 6 months of self discipline, exercising and eating right to lose a big chunk of weight.

This woman has chosen her condition, and that's her right. But obesity is a killer, and what I she were chain smoking, pounding shots of vodka or doing some other incredibly healthy thing on air? We say it's not about her weight but "who she is", but her inability to maintain her health also reflects on her character. I think she said she had three daughters...that's really the audience she needs to set an example for.

Maybe so, but what part of my post you quoted is incorrect. By definition bullying is "Use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone)". He had no strength or power over her, and was not trying to intimidate her. Using her position as someone with a (televised) voice, she used her position to intimidate or belittle what started out as a solitary private email.

It's not so much a defense of him as it is pointing out what she did was more wrong than what he did and closer to the definition of bullying than what he did.

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.



Fat people are disgusting. They are as bad in their personification of gluttony as certain overly-cosmetically-enhanced people are in their personification of vanity.
Unattractive people, who do their best to be reasonably well-groomed, are heroes compared to fat people or overly vain people in that they are doing the best they can with what they have.

Fat people are offensive, and should not subject the rest of the world to their fatty fatness.

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.

redmid17: Ken VeryBigLiar: mjbok: TrixieDelite: How about this--she delivers the news in a professional manner and has done so for ten years.

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.

IIRC her husband is either the station manager or involved in it as well. Granted, La Crosse is about as entry level as it gets in that line of work, her reason for staying isn't purely appearance.

She wouldnt have an on-air job in a mid level market, let alone a major market.


I live in what would probably be a mid level market city, and some of our local anchors are overweight. In fact, most of them are very ordinary-looking people, and I like them just fine. Not that I mind looking at the hot anchors, mind you, but I don't really need my anchors to look like models.

Last I checked, you can actually physically do something about being fat. I think she went a little overboard with the accept-me-how-i-am cliches when she compared herself to being persecuted like that.


That's what's bizarre. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills... Since when did obesity become a health-neutral status analogous to race, gender, or sexual preference? It's a behavior, and a chosen lifestyle, and a very, very unhealthy one at that.

How empty can one's life be if this is how s/he entertains/feels better/feels superior, etc., (about) oneself?




I don't think it's so much about this lawyer having an empty life as an enormous sense of entitlement. I doubt he's ever been on the receiving end of criticism due to his appearance--probably, just the opposite. I'm sure his appearance has always enabled him in getting whatever he wants and he probably truly believes he's superior to other people.

"If I could snap my fingers to be a size that I don't have to shop on the plus size rack that would be great, but I'm not ashamed of myself," she said. "Talk to me about the stories I cover, not the way I look."

I hate this excuse that there's nothing that can be done about her obesity. Yes, part of it is genetic, but the majority of it is controlling what you eat, how much you eat, and how much you exercise, and in 99.999% of the cases, those are the causes.

So yes, he has a valid point and she should probably exercise, and exercise restraint on the fork.

Well as long as we're imposing arbitrary standards on people in certain professions I believe that lawyers should score a minimum of 120 on a standard S-B IQ test, re-administered every 5 years. Failure would mean immediate disbarment with a five year waiting period to re-test. This would not only lower the numbers of people going into a profession that is generally considered to be over supplied, but would raise the standards of the profession as a whole, and ensure that only the sharpest minds stayed in practice.

Of course I'm basing this solely on personal opinion and I cannot cite any research to support these ideas, butn that respect I'm just like Mr. Krause.

I Love Rooster: I don't over eat. I actually eat healthy and I am not continuing to gain weight which I think is good. But steroid shots do make some people put on the pounds no matter what they do.

I would hope that they look at me and go "wow! she served the country, got blown up and lived, got her degree, works hard, etc etc...shes pretty cool!" But until I get back to a size 4 I guess all that means nothing.

Many of the people in this thread who are complaining about how OH NO FAT PEEPLZ COST SOCIETY MORE are, in other threads, conservatives who oppose pretty much any subsidy of common welfare. What's up with that?

I am an overweight female. I guess that means I got this way because all I do is sit around eating potato chips all day and watching soap operas.

Actually, I was a Marine and the very definition of in shape. I ran 3-5 miles a day, could crank out pull ups like a champ and could hike for miles with a full sack of gear. I was pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

Then what happened? My third deployment I was in a IED explosion. I broke my pelvis, shattered my right arm, messed up a knee and various other nasty things. I was laid up for a year unable to walk. Many many many surgeries later (and a few steroid shots here and there) I was discharged medically from the Corps. Due to my lack of mobility (I could barely walk) and medication I put on a good 50 pounds despite diet.
I went on and got my degree and a good job. But...I am still 50 pounds overweight. I am limited to walking as cardio (doc's orders, but I'm working on that one).
I guess despite my military service, life experiences, surviving an ordeal that no one should go through, moving on and getting a college degree and good job I am a bad role model for young girls and my daughter. All because I am a size 16/18...Damn...

Why is it necessary to shame and belittle fat people? They know they're fat. Most of them would rather be otherwise. Being a dick about it accomplishes nothing. Maybe you'll drive someone even deeper into the self-loathing depression that got them fat in the first place. Maybe you'll even get to make someone with unavoidable medical weight gain feel like shiat! What a deal!

Everyone should strive to be healthy and take good care of their bodies. Encouraging goes way, way further than cruelty in accomplishing that goal.

Be kind to fat folks as you would be kind to anyone. We all have vices and destructive flaws. Some of us are just lucky enough not to have them displayed on the outside.

So, I feel compelled to tell my story here, after seeing the usual "fat people are just lazy" postings.

For reference, here is a chart of my weight loss over the past 2 years:

img.photobucket.comClicky


I am what is commonly known as a "land whale", or "fatty boombalatty", "porker", "fatass", etc. You get the picture. 2 years ago I weighed 470 pounds. Today I weigh 374. I work a desk job with very demanding hours, the only job I am able to find. When I left college I bought a car and most of my physical exercise (on a bicycle) disappeared from my life. I gained a LOT of weight. I do not eat an exorbitant amount of food however. I went to "fat counseling" groups. There are some people there who go eat fast food 4 times a day, and whenever they go they eat 2-3 burgers in one sitting. I am not and have never been one of those people. I order small portions whenever I go out to eat, I only eat 3 meals a day, and yet I still nearly hit 500 pounds.

I've been called many many things over the years. It began with my parents. My brother is as skinny as a toothpick; so whenever food went missing from the house naturally I got blamed since I was heavier. This pissed me off because it was my brother eating the food all along, and yet everyone always felt it was ok to pile on me because I was the fat one. I was highly amused when I moved out at 18 and the food kept disappearing. Still never got an apology though.

The constant insults through life did a huge number on my self esteem. I locked myself up in seclusion for most of my 20's and ignored the outside world. I gained a ridiculous amount of weight because I ceased caring about myself since the rest of the world seemed to have written me off long ago anyway. Then one day I had to be hospitalized for high blood pressure. That was a real wakeup call. I started exercising 30 minutes a day 5 times a week, and eating healthy (1800 calories a day). Nothing changed. My weight flatlined for a month. Dropped the food down another notch (1500 a day, basically starvation level sustenance) and increased the exercise to 150 minutes a day 6 times a week (15 hours a week), and finally I started losing weight at a rate of 3 pounds a week (phase 1).

I was exercising indoors, but unfortunately there's only so much I can take before I went mad. After losing about 70 pounds I felt a lot better about myself; a lot more self confident. I slowed down on the exercise so I could begin having a social life of some sort; I stuck to 2 hours a day 5 times a week (10 hours a week), and my weight loss took a big hit (phase 2). I was still losing, but less than a pound a week now, and the rate was beginning to slow significantly as I lost weight, because the less I weighed, the less I burned exercising.

Well, then something bad happened in my family. I had to take care of some people and the exercise slowed down to a crawl. The one and only reason I was able to maintain 10-15 hours of exercise a week previously was because I had no family responsibilities and I was lucky not to get sick or seriously ill. But now that I had to take care of other people I could only do about 5 hours of exercise a week. 5 hours + 1500 calories a day = weight gain of nearly 2 pounds a week for me. This depressed me beyond all hope and I even stopped weighing myself regularly. This was phase 3.

Finally, after I started feeling like crap again and my family responsibilities were no longer needed, I was able to begin focusing on myself again. Pissed off that I lost 8 months worth of progress, I stopped all socializing and went die hard back to 15 hours (and sometimes up to 20!) of biking a week. Unfortunately after a month I began to lose my sanity again. Sure I reversed the weight gain (phase 4), but with 15-20 hours a week of biking there was literally no time to socialize again and found myself ostracized once more. Finally, I decided I would look for a bike club, which would turn out to be my savior. I joined the club and now socialize and exercise at the same time. I'm losing a steady 1.3 pounds a week again, but as my weight recedes I expect this rate will once again lower as well. Keep in mind this is on a barely sustenance 1500 calorie diet too.

This is literally the only thing that is ever going to work for me. There is no way in hell I am ever going to be able to handle my weight and a family at the same time. As soon as I have children and all sorts of other responsibilities, the exercise is going to fly right out the window because there simply will not be enough time. I never spend time with my old friends anymore because they don't exercise.

So when people go around saying that I'm fat just because I'm lazy, I love to point to the graph where I was exercising 5 hours a week and eating far less than the average person and STILL gained 2 pounds a week. Most people think weight loss is as simple as calories in, calories out, but that's just not true. Some of our bodies love converting calories into fat. It's something I have to live with, and I really wish people would have been more accepting of this fact when I was younger, and encouraged me to actually care about myself. But it was far easier to destroy my self confidence and make me feel worthless. Even today I'll have people in cars scream at me "get off the road fatass, you're not fooling anyone!" when I'm biking (it's almost always pickup truck drivers for some reason). I'm glad that I have enough confidence to flip them off and keep on cycling; but I can see weaker-willed people giving up and falling back to a sedentary lifestyle after so many insults.

Anyway, that's my story. Some of us need to exercise 15-20 hours a week to lose weight, and if you can't understand what kind of a personal sacrifice to life that will make, then there's simply no point in arguing. I'd love to see if there's any activity besides sleeping and working that any of the namecallers here are able to maintain in their life for 15-20 hours without going insane. We're not all lazy, and I would appreciate it if you would stop judging all of us without getting to know a damn thing about us.

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.

It does have a bearing on her job performance, because she's making it seem like it's ok to be a fatty to the fatty little kids who may watch her on TV.
When you see things often enough, you can become desensitized to them. She's hard to miss.

As for her being aware of her weight, that's pretty much what the email was about. She doesn't seem to be or doesn't seem to be aware that it's an issue.
The email was referencing the fact that she's been a fatty for quite some time without seeming to take any action to fix her problem.

Her job performance was such that she was able to get high enough ratings to keep her position for over a decade so obviously her weight wasn't an issue. As far as her being a role model to small children, if you expect a news anchor in LaCrosse, Wisconsin to be a role model for your kids, you're a failure as a parent and a human being



She has high ratings because of all the fatties that would rather look at her instead of someone who is thinner than they are.

That's one of the reasons I think the vampire craze has blown up so much. All the fatty women fantasize about not having to look at themselves in the mirror.

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


not everyone who's fat is necessarily doing something deliberately bad to their body. For example, my aunt eats like once a day and she's a balloon, what the fark is telling her she's fat gonna do, stop her eating less? Thats where bulimia comes from. Being fat has for more to do with the fast food plastered everywhere, doubled with subsidized sugar, corn and crap, but not fruits and vegetables of course, with overworked jobs, low pay, stressful lives as well as age. Alot of fat people ARE ALREADY TRING TO LOSE WEIGHT. CAN YOU SAY THAT ABOUT ALCOHOLICS AND DRUG USERS?. SHE'S ALREADY TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT. THE ONLY THING TELLING HER SHE'S FAT WILL DO IS MAKE HER GIVE UP There's a strong difference between someone overweight trying to lose weight and someone who just eats plain crap, learn the difference. I mean no one wants to farking be fat.

Are you gonna tell someone depressed they're farking depressed and should just stop being depressed? Or that someone ugly should just stop being ugly? Quit being such an entitled self-centered dick (myself not excluded)

His original email:

"It's unusual that I see your morning show, but I did so for a very short time today. I was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition hasn't improved for many years.

Sure[ly] you don't consider yourself a suitable example for this community's young people, girls in particular. Obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain. I leave you this note hoping that you'll reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle."

This is not a terribly cruel email. Did he call her fat? Did he use "bullying" type words? No. She called him a bully. She took a private email and turned it into a public spectacle (or her husband did). She goes on air to talk about negative impacts on young girls. What he did wasn't nice, but in terms of how it was phrased it wasn't really mean, either. Like it or not when kids see someone on tv or in the movies they often admire them and aspire to be like them. Like it or not, she is probably a role model and being obese (her words, not mine) is not a good example to set.

I Love Rooster: Slow your roll there skate! First off...I was not some typical WM who used her god damned period to get out of work details. I said the penis comment because my gunny actually told me that it was a shame I didn't have a penis because I was being wasted. I wasnt saying it a way to mean "oh boo hoo i get treated different because i have a vagina! waaaah!" It was more of a "damn...wish I had a penis so I could be a sniper!" Yes, women get to do the flex arm hang and get a damn half hour to run three miles. However, I could crank out pull ups and my run was on par with the men's first class times. I know how it works in there too and that is why I vowed to NEVER be one of those females who would cry and biatch because they had cramps.
As for the whole walking thing. Yes, I can walk. Barely at this time though because my metal on metal hip implants have to be replaced because the left joint is loosened and there are metal shard broken off into the tissue. I lose balance alot. I never said I could walk normal but that doctors approved me of walking. Doctors thought I would never be able to walk again without assistance. I am proud that I am doing that at least. But I am realistic and know at this time I CANNOT bike, I CANNOT run. I can swim but I have no access to a pool and a 24 hour gym membership is a little out of our budget. If you want to get me one though I would use it.
I don't over eat. I actually eat healthy and I am not continuing to gain weight which I think is good. But steroid shots do make some people put on the pounds no matter what they do. I don't expect to be coddled. I was just trying to say that my weight gain does not make me a bad person or a bad role model for my daughter and other little girls. I would hope that they look at me and go "wow! she served the country, got blown up and lived, got her degree, works hard, etc etc...shes pretty cool!" But until I get back to a size 4 I guess all that means nothing.




You are the perfect "outlier" in the chart of life. Yes, it's unfair for people to give you that sideways glance when they first meet you. All I'm saying from previous posts is the lazy or clueless fatties are degrading themselves and you simply because of their inability to show some self control.

Generally-speaking being fat is demeaning to one's self, wasteful of food, harmful to the environment, embarrassing when trying to fit into roller coasters or sports arena seats, and if you're into religion, a sin.

Many many many surgeries later (and a few steroid shots here and there) I was discharged medically from the Corps. Due to my lack of mobility (I could barely walk) and medication I put on a good 50 pounds despite diet.
I went on and got my degree and a good job. But...I am still 50 pounds overweight. I am limited to walking as cardio (doc's orders, but I'm working on that one).
I guess despite my military service, life experiences, surviving an ordeal that no one should go through, moving on and getting a college degree and good job I am a bad role model for young girls and my daughter. All because I am a size 16/18...Damn...

Addiction is considered a disorder. Some people are pre-disposed to being addicts to one thing or another. Not a great argument, but the percentage of people who are overweight due to circumstances beyond there control is small, possibly small enough to be considered statistically insignificant.

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


There are many employers who will not hire smokers and have required smokers to quit as a term of employment. There are (possibly) justifiable reasons why, higher insurance rates being one of the big ones. The thing is smokers already pay higher premiums. You know what else causes insurance to be higher? Morbid obesity. However, with few exceptions (like ones that you can't do your job if you're obese) you couldn't refuse to hire someone because they are overweight, or fire them because they become overweight. There is a small percentage of people who are overweight due to circumstances out of their control. Most of them are overweight because they have poor impulse control and willpower, just like...smokers.

The obese is next on the list. It is coming, it's just a matter of time.

Is Atkins the best solution? No, probably not. Is it a godsend to a lot of people who have a hard time losing weight with traditional calorie/exercise diets? Absolutely. You are aware of the term "mobidly obese" aren't you? That kicks in around 100lbs overweight or 50%, we are discussing ~200lbs and 100%.

/Being obese is a terrible thing to do to your body.

It takes a special kind of logic to dissuade someone from using a very effective but contentious diet who is probably a full 200lbs overweight. It's all a risk/reward equation, even working out.


Sorry, but Atkins can do more harm than being obese does *especially* if you loose a lot of weight with it. Massive amounts of weight loss on Atkins can cause kidney failure, and pretty much any amount of weight loss on Atkins will result in loss of muscle mass because your body starts burning muscle tissue *before* it finally starts working on the fat when you're in ketosis. Unless someone is in a situation where they have to lose weight within a relatively short period of time or die, there are way, way, WAY better diets out there than Atkins.

No, I am not a dietitian, but I was raised by someone with a PhD in biology and is a certified Nutritionist so I got to hear a lot about Atkins when it became a fad. For most people and situations, doing Atkins is worse than staying fat.

Then, she shouldn't have mis-labeled him as a "bully". He exhibited not a single "bullying" behavior. He didn't call her any names. He didn't chastise her publicly. He tried to keep his criticism and the exchange private. It was she and her husband who had to turn this into a stampede, in an attempt to garner public support from the herd. Are you a bully if you tell somebody, (in private,) "You should probably brush your teeth. Your breath smells like rancid ass." are you a bully if you tell somebody, "Go smoke outside. There are children in here."? No, in fact, she is the bully, using her bully pulpit to shout this guy down. If she's active in the community, good for her. Of course she's "more than just a number." But the fact remains: he's totally correct in telling her that she's setting a bad example for children. Substance abuse is unhealthy, whether it be alcohol, tobacco, drugs, or carbohydrates.

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 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.

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.

MoeSzyslak: GregoryD: Does science support that being fat is a lifestyle choice?

Does science support that inner city poor blacks murder each other with guns at crazy high rates but poor whites don't? It's a lifestyle choice. 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'm sorry if the facts get in the way of your prejudices and inflated sense of self-control.

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!

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.

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.

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.

The thing is, a lot of fat people don't accept that they're overweight. People believe what they want to, what is comfortable. We tell ourselves what we want to hear and seek out opinions we feel comfortable with. It's easier that way. So, some fat people can bask in lala land without ever feeling they're putting their health at risk. They refuse to acknowledge it.

Yep, I've been there. Would tell myself all kinds of things to believe it was ok to be at an unhealthy weight. But you only hurt yourself when you do that, and the best thing I ever did was come to terms and face the fact I needed to take action. I did, and it was life changing. Start small...just take a 20 minute walk in the morning or evening. Make a list and cut out the top three high calorie things you eat. Everyone can do this, and it feels really good.

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."


I've been through some of that, and yes, there are reasons people gain weight as a result of trauma, or even just the result of a stressful job etc. See it as an opportunity to grow (spiritually ;) and nurture yourself back to health. Keep a journal, meditate, whatever it takes to get your self esteem and confidence back in place. You are counting on yourself...be honest with yourself and don't let the assholes win.

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.


It seems like your not considering the health angle to maintaining a healthy weight. It's not primarily about how the men view you sexually...it's about eating healthy and exercising, and not hiding behind the premise that women won't allow men to dictate their looks.

Though I had "good, understandable reasons" for being fat, there was only one thing standing between gross health problems and a slender, healthy body: WORK.

This woman has chosen her condition, and that's her right. But obesity is a killer, and what I she were chain smoking, pounding shots of vodka or doing some other incredibly healthy thing on air? We say it's not about her weight but "who she is", but her inability to maintain her health also reflects on her character. I think she said she had three daughters...that's really the audience she needs to set an example for.

She's the one who went all Barbara Streisand with it.


Well yes, but why would he do it? He doesn't know her...he does know she's a media personality. And considering he has to be at the gym every 26 minutes, why would he devote time to this? Maybe he was just doing some marketing, trying to get new customers.

Indubitably: Position of power?

Ha!


You think having an inability to broadcast to dozens of people in the LaCrosse area isn't a position of power? All TV reporters get asked for autographs no matter the market size, being local celebrities and all. Having a free 4 minute block to air your grievances publicly for what was a private email is power. Sure, the lawyer could have bought air time to do the same, but that would have cost hundreds of dollars.

In this scenario, neither party was right. In this scenario, one person was (possibly) a bully, but it wasn't the guy. I don't give a rats ass if someone is thin, fat, black, white, gay, straight, republican, democrat, etc., but she did two things I take offense at: she played the bully card (by doing so belittled the plight of people that are actually bullied) and she did exactly what she accused the guy of.

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

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.

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!

On one hand, he didn't post his letter on a public forum - the lady's husband did. Plus, he didn't call her names or resort to personal attacks.

On the other hand, sending her the email was a dick move. It's not like she's not aware of her weight, or that it was his job to point it out, either. His email came off with the attitude of "how dare you be fat!", as if it has any bearing on her job performance or his life. Maybe for his next email, he'll tell Mary-Kate Olsen to eat a sandwich.

ThatBillmanGuy: So, being fat is now like being a different race, having a different religion, or sexual preference now?


Race...Religion...Sexual Preference.

Ummm, yeah...religion doesn't really belong in that group of things. Religion is pretty much a choice in the free world.

sure haven't: The only thing that was handed to him is publicity. She didn't hand anyone their ass. She whined and then equated obesity with sexism or racism, which is sofa king retarded that nothing else she says will register. idiot.


Which is ridiculous as you can't choose your gender or race...99% of fat people are that way because they choose to be.
I know. I am kind of fat myself so I am not hating. But I am fat because I need to exercise more, or at all. But because someone is fat is no reason to be rude to them over it...but he wasn't rude so yeah..the fat twit should shut her hole or stuff it full of more food.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: The dude is right on. She's a morbidly obese woman, and nothing in his letter was inaccurate or "bullying". She's setting a horrible example for young viewers. It's no different than it would be if she was smoking cigarettes on ait.


How do you know her age and weight (or body fat percentages, etc) to figure out her BMI level of overweight-obese-morbidly obese? Frankly, you sound fat. Maybe it's "eating cheetos and typing in the closet because I can't come out or someone will know fat" type fat - but you definitely have some strong views, man.

Ken VeryBigLiar: IIRC her husband is either the station manager or involved in it as well.


If that's true that makes more sense, but station managers don't (or at least didn't when I was in the business) tend to stay at one station or market for 10 years either.

If she's happy with it and where she's at, that's great for her. Her approach to this whole thing is wrong. The fact that the guy is a d-bag doesn't change that her reaction was poor. Someone in that position, no matter the market, is going to get lots of weird correspondence and I can't believe this was the first one mentioning her weight.

mjbok: TrixieDelite: How about this--she delivers the news in a professional manner and has done so for ten years.

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.


IIRC her husband is either the station manager or involved in it as well. Granted, La Crosse is about as entry level as it gets in that line of work, her reason for staying isn't purely appearance.

Tyrosine: Well as long as we're imposing arbitrary standards on people in certain professions I believe that lawyers should score a minimum of 120 on a standard S-B IQ test, re-administered every 5 years. Failure would mean immediate disbarment with a five year waiting period to re-test. This would not only lower the numbers of people going into a profession that is generally considered to be over supplied, but would raise the standards of the profession as a whole, and ensure that only the sharpest minds stayed in practice.

Of course I'm basing this solely on personal opinion and I cannot cite any research to support these ideas, butn that respect I'm just like Mr. Krause.


Besides, stupid lawyers set a bad example for the kids. They need to be role models and show the children of America that being stupid isn't healthy.

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.

Agreed. I would tend to side with the news anchor and against the lawyer for no other reason than her brother is Ron Livingston.

Having a relative who's been in both Office Space and Band of Brothers should count for something, after all.
