cretinbob: I'd rather be fat that a personal injury attorney
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.

Voiceofreason01: How many times does it need to be said: DO NOT FEED THE TROLLS

Bronzemom: When the famine comes, all you skinny people will be dead and I will laugh and laugh.And it WILL come, make no mistake about it.
TastyEloi: rocinante721: FTFA: Livingston, who just so happens to be the sister of Office Space actor Ron LivingstonI dont want to be someone who would[danceswithfat.files.wordpress.com image 500x469]... but I'm seriously disappointed at the lack of OFFICE SPACE quotes hereAgreed. 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.
pheelix: Huggermugger: Guys, we weren't born to specifically give you an erection.Given the fact that women need a man with a boner in order to propagate the species, I consider your statement to be false.
TrixieDelite: 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?Jackwad.
chopit: He's a dick, she's lazy. Can we please talk about things that matter for once?
Rain Fall: Funny. If she was male and twice her size, no one would say a word about her size. It's only because she is female anyone cares. Such hypocrisy. There are so many incredibly butt-ugly and disgusting looking men on TV, I mean so many. In TV shows, on the news, in variety shows, but no one cares, no one says a word.Only women seem to be held to this standard of artificial beauty. How enlightened of us all.
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
Indubitably: Teufelaffe: Found this the other day, seems like a fitting place to leave it...[catmacros.files.wordpress.com image 597x464]Your pix reminds me of my kitty-friend, but I suspect you already knew that...
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?
ThatBillmanGuy: So, being fat is now like being a different race, having a different religion, or sexual preference now?
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.
ggeckoHe 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.

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!
Barfmaker: It's not about whether he was inaccurate. Yes she's overweight and even obese, that's not the point.
SilentStrider: Hey douchebag. You got your ass handed to you. Put your tail between your legs and crawl back into your cave.
