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.

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.

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

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?

Older scout, in dead serious voice: hey, don't make fun of him. He has Dunlap syndrome.

Ok, it doesn't translate into text that well, especially when you don't live in a part of the country that uses the word "done" in that context, but it was damned funny at the time.

cmb53208: TOSViolation:


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.

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
