GORDON: I think I should write a letter to a little girl who lives in the neighborhood that is a little fat, because apparently she needs to know she is fat and making her aware that she is fat is actually doing her a favor, and is in no way a douchebag move. And has nothing to do with bullying. During anti-bullying month.

She'll be thanking me, I just know it.


Yes, because the little girl is a public figure by choice and not because some creepy farking pedophile is passing judgement on her attractiveness, you sick, sick fark. Someone get Chris Hansen to this farkers house before he strikes.

I have no problems with her being a fat role model.

I have problems with her being a role model who cannot keep a stiff upper lip, and instead of ignoring the guy who called her fat, ran to mommy and daddy and whined about it, and then turned it into a press junket to self promote herself.

capt.hollister: daveinsurgent: liam76: The My Little Pony Killer: The problem is that it was written in the first place. There are some things that should be kept to ones self. Statements about the weight of another person, especially one that you don't personally know, included

I would agree if she wasn't a public figure.

Also, he sent it to her. He didn't do it in front of people, did he? It wasn't public ridicule. She made it public.

"I know I'm fat" === "It's OK that I am fat" because, as he pointed out, her condition has not improved. Admitting your fat doesn't count when you don't follow it up with an intent to fix it. It's not healthy. It's not a "choice" any more than doing drugs or abusing alcohol is.

It's not OK to be fat. Fat isn't part of LGBT or any other "equality" that needs to be accepted to move forward socially. There are real, evident health risks and a burden to society involved with being as fat as she is, not to mention the only way she got that fat was by over-consumption.

It's not OK only if it puts a burden on others. If the comments in FTA are correct, she's actually quite fit. You do know that it is not impossible to be fat and fit, right ? obviously, most obese people are not fit, but some are. Likewise, most normal-weight people are not all that fit, either.

It is also possible to gain lots of hard to lose weight by having a malfunctionning thyroid gland which, again according to the comments in FTA, is exactly her case...


If she had a medical problem that made her attack people, swear uncontrollably, or abuse little kids would that suddenly be excused? For some reason fat people are OK with deflecting to some vague unsubstantiated medical issue but every other deviant doesn't get that luxory. They should be inpatiented immediately if they were indeed medically uncontrollable.

ChuDogg: someonelse: ChuDogg: ... they are poor role models.

So, you don't want any fat teachers. OK. Did you want that codified into law? Do you think it should be federal or on a state by state basis? How do you want to determine the cutoff? BMI, or something else? Should it be at the discretion of the school board? What if a teacher starts out thin, then gets fat? Should we give him/her a set amount of time to reverse the pattern before firing them? What about sedentary teachers who are thin but have high cholesterol or triglycerides? Should that be considered at all, even though they are not visibly fat? What if a teacher is not fat, but has admitted to his/her classroom that he/she doesn't get enough exercise? And we haven't even touched on the non-teaching professions yet, like this news anchor's position. She's in the public eye, but she's not specifically dealing with children. Should she be fired because she's setting a bad example? What about fat doctors, nurses, crossing guards, librarians, food service workers, bus drivers, and so on? They are all in the public eye and deal with children. My gosh, what about department store Santas? That's the ultimate role model for children, and he shakes when he laughs like a bowlful of jelly! This must be a danger.

/or maybe we could just get over it

Obfuscating the issue with hypotheticals and hyperbole isn't clever. It's apologizing for poor behavior. It isn't hard to understand that Obese people need rehabilitation and those that are close to them should organize an intervention. It's not like finding out somebody was abusing alcohol brings up volumes of problematic scenarios. No you just tell them to get help and fire them if they don't.

It's not like we have a shortage of applicants or anything.


Lol an intervention? What?

So... people should just keep their mouth shut when they perceive a social injustice being directed against them and people of their kind? They should just give up and accept it, without trying to rationalize to these people that they are actually human beings with feelings, and personal attacks are not the correct or even effective way to bring about change?

That is a terribly corrosive way of thinking, my friend.

Are you guys seriously arguing that because she's a news anchor, her weight trumps her competence?

Are you seriously arguing that I said anything about competence?

/I didn't.


True, you didn't.

Mind you, we still disagree on whether it's ok to criticize a stanger's physique just because they happen to be on the tube. If you must do it, just yell at the TV, but don't write an email unless you actually know the person because, you know, it's none of your fraking business !

I_C_Weener: Honestly, I hadn't paid much attention to this story.  But seems to me if you are going into news reading, you probably know that appearance is going to be pretty important.  That said, she overcame that bias like very few do.  That's impressive. 
 
And for America, she's not fat...just above average sized.


She got fatter after she got the job.

and yes even in the US she is fat.

bittermang: So... people should just keep their mouth shut when they perceive a social injustice being directed against them and people of their kind?


Telling someone they advertising an unhealthy lifestyle (which is backed up by fact, isn;t like he is yelling at gays for the aids) is a "social injustice"?

"fit" doesn't equal "healthy".

It is very hard to have her shape and be "healthy".

Really? I thought that was pretty tactful when your ass is big enough to land an F-16 on.
 
2012-10-04 02:08:04 PM  
I'm willing to bet that she'd look down on or even berate someone with an alcohol or drug problem, and not see any irony in it at all. She claims that being fat is just like being someone with different colored skin or sexuality, or like someone with a disability, but that's a self-serving load of crap.

Just like alcoholism and drug abuse, being overweight is 100% a personal choice.

While the email was tasteless and none of the guy's business, he's right. Obesity should be treated, not accepted.

Judging by how many people are defending this busybody, there is a pretty obvious lack of elementary manners in the US. No, you shouldn't tell perfect strangers how to live or meddle in other people's clearly personal issues. It's rude and demonstrates a shocking lack of class! You don't know them, and your faux concern is completely transparent. We get it, she's fat, you're not. Congrats. Now mind your own farking business.

brigid_fitch: serial_crusher: FishyFred: serial_crusher: Wouldn't it be great if all the insecure women in America had a famous brother who would stick up for them? Man, then nobody would have to accept any personal responsibility for anything.

She did a pretty good job sticking up for herself. This just brings more attention to it.

Not really. She waited for her husband to post about it on Facebook, then she took to the air to whine about how it hurt her precious feewings, and deflect personal responsibility for her problems. She even dismissed her diagnosis of obesity "according to some doctor's chart", as if said doctor isn't a credible expert on the topic.

No part of that counts as a "pretty good job" imho.

Not to mention there was really no point in sticking up for herself in the first place. The guy wrote an email criticizing her looks--big deal. You don't like it, you ignore it. Or maybe you blast him back. What you DON'T do is use a national stage to publicly lambaste him, call him a bully, and trot out your private grievances for some cheap shots against someone you disagree with.

If anyone's the bully in that scenario, it's her. And this is coming from someone who grew up being bullied.


To be fair, a local news station in Wisconsin usually doesn't count as a "national stage" unless you happen to win the YouTube lottery.

I notice you cleverly left our the part where youre making physical judgments about "a little girl in the neighborhood". Having a different opinion than me doesn't make you a pedophile, watching a little girl and passing judgement on her physicality is. Or, maybe you are really retarded enough to not understand the difference between a little girl and an adult news anchor? Since you clearly are judging little girls physically, I don't see how my conclusion is wrong.

She looks like the girl who was always cute and petite in high school, might have been a cheerleader, when on to college, never had a hard time was always popular, but never was into physical fitness.

She got a broadcasters job, which is basically no extertion, likes the free lunches and drinks she gets around town and in the station green room, since she has three kids more than likely has a nanny, because you know she isnt cleaning house and chasing the rugrats around.

So through her own fault of overeating and inactivity she has become close to being morbidly obese. And because she was always the cute one, she cannot handle when someone calls the very thing she used to despise and never was, and decides to make an issue out because it hurt her feelings.

She needs to join a gym and drop the fork. She leads a charmed lazy life and she gets upset because someone calls her fat? White people problems.

The guy was insenstive, but was pointing out the obvious.

Being in the public eye means your entire life is subject to scrutiny. According to the letter she has gotten bigger and bigger over the years. As such this can be seen, by some who read WAY too much into things(but they will regardless), as an endorsement of an unhealthy lifestyle. Since she is on TV that means kids might see her(THINK OF THE CHILDREN!). Kids with bad parents(most of them) will start viewing her as a possible role model(because all kids want to be on TV when they grow up). They will think being a beluga whale is a-ok because the lady on TV weighs 6,000lbs and nobody cares.

A human male wrote a letter to said female elephant to express this concern of his in a, what I still think was, rather polite way.

As most fatty's do, she took offense to the fact that someone called her fat. Only she used a local news station as a soapbox, as such she hit the youtube jackpot and is no on every nationally syndicated news outlet.

I don't get her problem with calling Jenny Craig. Maybe she's addicted to high fructose corn syrup like I am beer. Regardless, Who knows, who cares. Dude was not a bully, she should be scorned for using a public news program as a personal soap box, and everybody is paying way too much attention to the talking sea cow. Lose some weight or go back to cramming your gullet with delicious doughnuts. Either way, shut your chunky mouth lady.

She isn't a journalist.

She is the TV weather lady.

Even if she was a TV news presenter they aren't primarily journalists, they are people who can convey the news.

Her weight doesn't hurt or help her ability to read the weather (although it may disuade some from watching her do it), however as a public figure the lifestyle she projects does matter.
 
2012-10-04 02:27:16 PM  
The viewer was right. She is fat. Stating that she is fat is not bullying.
 
2012-10-04 02:29:18 PM  
She will go down in history as turning a respectfully-written private email into a public whine-fest. She doesn't realize it now, but will eventually learn she hasn't taught anyone to stand up to bullying. She's taught everyone to have a thin skin and delusions that being that overweight should be socially acceptable. It's not on any level.

Bullying is mean-spirited taunting like "Fatty-fatty-two-by-four" or "Hey lardo, if you wear corduroy pants do your thighs catch on fire?". Bullying is not the email that was written, which was spot on for a local "celebrity" and the image she should be portraying.

look as somebody who has gained a lot of weight recently, it's not that easy to "just go on a diet".

when you have kids, or get over 40, or stop walking everywhere, or actually make enough money to eat out a lot and eat well at home, well it all starts to go downhill. You got a car and you got money and the job sometimes gets boring, so why not have a bag of chocolate in the desk drawer? Your metabolism slows down and it's no longer enough to just walk the dog twice a day.

I bet there are a lot of Farkers with beer guts who end up like Kyle Kinane without the morning self-realization. (pops) (a little cussing in this clip, maybe NSFW for uptight workplaces)

Why not have a stick of gum instead of a bag of chocolate? When you go out to eat, why not have a salad instead of lasagna? If you're eating poorly and you have kids, then your kids are eating poorly too. Even worse than being in poor health, you're leading a bad example.

As for walking the dog, that never was enough to keep your weight down. Terrible excuse. The only thing that's changed is your diet and your self control.

ChuDogg: Obfuscating the issue with hypotheticals and hyperbole isn't clever. It's apologizing for poor behavior. It isn't hard to understand that Obese people need rehabilitation and those that are close to them should organize an intervention. It's not like finding out somebody was abusing alcohol brings up volumes of problematic scenarios. No you just tell them to get help and fire them if they don't.

It's not like we have a shortage of applicants or anything.


Tell whom to get help? I'm not talking hyperbole here. I'm asking whom, exactly, you advocate firing for being overweight?

WhippingBoy: This is what a female news-anchor should look like:

Trying watching Primer Impacto. Now those are some very "nice" looking anchor women.

This thread is depressingly devoid of photos of Rosemarie DeWitt (aka Mrs. Ron Livingston). And the filter here at work leaves me frustratingly unable to remedy the situation.

I'd say she's even good as an example for the country's young people, many of whom are over weight. Yes, you are over weight, yes you know this, yes, you too can pretty much do whatever you want despite it and despite how people you don't know are on you about how you look.

I've never understood fatty hate. How empty is your life that you have enough time to become so angry about some person in a line somewhere, someone in traffic, or someone broadcasting the news? Are you so angry at people who smoke and drink? Are you so repulsed by men who wear wigs? Jesus Christ get a farking hobby and let people be happy with who they are.

Strategeryz0r: omgwtfetc: BraveNewCheneyWorld: omgwtfetc: Why? Because you wouldn't be aware of it otherwise?

When something happens very slowly, almost nobody notices the change. Is that a new concept to you?

You can't seriously believe that this guy thought the anchor didn't realize she was fat. Or that the vast majority of fat people don't realize they're fat. They may not want to do anything about it, and that's a whole different problem, but I have no respect for those making fun of fat people and then hiding behind the convenient "oh, I just wanted to warn you that you're fat because I'm so concerned". If you're going to be a dick, at least be honest about it.

I'm going to be a dick..

I'm pretty sure he ass has enough real estate to land the shuttle.


Lol, that's more like it. Making fun of fat people on Fark is a time honored tradition. However, if you were to personally e-mail her to tell her her ass has enough real estate to land the space shuttle, in my book that crosses the border into bullying.

RyansPrivates: Amur


I usually do, what's your point?

People on TV are like animals at the zoo, there for me to point and laugh at my discretion.
