ultraholland: She made a public event out of a private email. This is all her making.


Yeah, well, that may be. But at least she never slept with Lumbergh.

If there's anything I learned from this experience, it's this:

1. Women, if you want to appear on TV, there's an unwritten social contract which declares that you must have a body within a certain range of thinness and attractiveness. (Unless you're portraying someone's middle-aged female relatives, or the comic relief whom everyone makes fun of. Then you can be as fat as you like. After all, late night comedians need SOMEONE topical they can make fat jokes about. You can't expect them to make fun of Oprah and Delta Burke forever.)

2. Any woman outside of the range of attractiveness who tries to pass herself off as a dynamic main character or sex object MUST be punished for her insolence. After all, a women's intrinsic value (that is, the one bestowed upon her solely by the nature of her biology) lies only in her fertility and potential as a mate. An unattractive woman who does not possess this value must not pass herself off as someone who does, otherwise she will face retribution. (Unattractive MEN will not face the same retribution, seeing as how their intrinsic nature-based value lies in their ability to provide for and protect their families--something they do not need to be attractive in order to do.)

3. Ugly women who transgress against the social contract for public appearance will often be punished just as ruthlessly by women as they will by men. Expect the phrase "she's a bad role model for little girls" to be uttered against such transgressive women, even though no one would think of looking at a fat or slightly pudgy man and declare "he's a bad role model for little boys!" (Do you think Patton Oswalt routinely stands around worrying whether or not he might be encouraging childhood sloth and obesity? Would people even think of accusing him of it? Hell no. )

I'd have no problem with shaming overweight people who appear in public into being healthier examples for others to follow, if such shaming fell equally among gender lines. Let's face it, no one cares or even notices if a guy on TV is huge. But a woman is often made to feel as though she's committed a crime by appearing in public while pudgy. (Like she's cheating the watcher out of viewing a thinner, more attractive girl.)

I don't think her weight affects her ability to be a reporter.

However, she is obese. The truth hurts and pointing out the truth isn't bullying.

Repeatedly, in a stalking manner could be but we only know of this one email/posting.

Anonymous get 1/2 d*ckish point. If he gave his name then he wasn't a d*ck/stalker. (You know if it would have been anonymous she would have mentioned it.)

And just as she has a requirement to have a thick skin yes she has is role model just like politicians, athletes, and others in the limelight.

Get over it.

Please quote the part of the letter where he was "making fun" of her.

Actually, I can. The world is filled with people who view themselves through distorted lenses. BTW, welcome to earth.

elvindeath: She's fat. Lawyer guy is a tool box douchemaster supreme. Both can be, and are, true. What's the dilemma ?


I can't disagree with this. She is indeed fat. I think the dilemma I am seeing in this thread really has more to do with propriety of the letter. Is it more improper to be overweight or to point out to a person you don't know that he or she is overweight? I think the latter is more improper. And that is how I arrived to agree with your second point: "Lawyer guy is a tool box douchemaster supreme."

/Yes I know this is Fark, and have been here for a while, thank you very much.

Her recent posting regarding the term "bullying":

"Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your comments and for continuing to talk about this very important issue. Your voices are being heard.

I would like to address a criticism that has popped up regarding my use of the term "bully" and whether the e-mail at the center of my editorial truly constitutes the label. Does it have to be done in public? Does it have to be a repeated act? It's a fair point and a good discussion.

I am not a bullying expert and would never want to be considered one. However - I am a mom and a journalist. If my child came home and told me she received that type of negative e-mail from someone at school, there's no way I would wait for it to happen again. Should we wait to speak up until someone is utterly beaten down by repeated rants? Or should we take a stand the first time to say, "this is not okay."

Call it bullying, out of line, mean - call it what you want. I won't accept it and I don't think you should have to either.

Jennifer"

gadian: 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.


No.

She started out thin (if the info I got in these threads is to be believed). Should would never be hired on TV like that. Sends a terrible message to kids.

I was referring more to some people in this thread with the "making fun" of fat people part. The original letter was not so much making fun as gratuitously insulting someone over an issue that is absolutely none of the letter writer's business. No matter how politely he may have phrased it, it boils down to "you're fat and people shouldn't have to look at you". Read between the lines.

I'd say by and large the people shaming that poor poor misunderstood woman are mostly men, because that's how it works. Why should I care if some guy is fat? It's just some fat guy, and his attractiveness has nothing to do with anything I'd ever care about. We can probably talk sports or drink beer or something. But this lady who has developed a serious case of adult onset fattness is something I care about, because I find women attractive, and she largely isn't. Maybe if women started shaming fat guys instead of ignoring it and marrying them anyway, society would work differently. But that's not how it currently works.

So either way you look at it, it's a womans fault.

Wow. I'm in favor of helping people get their weight under control because it's good for them, but the anti-smoking nazi's really have turned to the war on fat people to get their fix of being assholes, haven't they?

So, we cant comment about a public figures weight if we don't know them personally?

I agree that some folks should keep their opinions to themselves, but if you're in the public eye, you've got to expect some negative opinion coming your way.


Maybe she got the job to be a broadcaster and not eye-candy.

Yup no one ever points out when guys are overweight. They only do it to women. Go into any thread about Michael Moore, Chistie, limbaugh or any other overweight guy and you'll see the same comments.

I'm sorry you're so personally offended and angry about how someone else looks. Must be tough on you. I still don't see a problem with a message to kids of "hey, I'm overweight too. I'm successful. I don't hate myself, hide in shame, or take positions beneath me because of how I look". It's a positive self perception and can work on kids of all sizes. Hey look, that person is comfortable in their own skin! Stone her!

Besides, if you feel that is a bad message for kids, you can wring your hands and tell your kids "hey, she's successful, but she's unhealthy and you see how mean strangers are to her. Why don't you be healthier so that you can be successful and strangers won't be mean to you." Still a good example.

I see that many here don't feel that having a thyroid problem cant justify (for lack of a better word) being overweight. I have a good friend who has some very dramatic complications from mitochondrial disease. She ballooned to over 300lbs on a 90lb frame because of edema. For other medical reasons, there's nothing more doctors can do. She's also in a wheelchair and no amount of working out or diet would change it anyway. Its literally fluid filling all her organs, including skin, with deadly amounts of water. And yes, this is rare. But there are many things out there like it. Not at all enough to explain away the majority of America's extra pounds, but maybe enough to get people to STFU before they feel like they can group all obese into the same pile.

/I agree this wasn't bullying, the guy was an ass and yah she's fat. Just not a good reason to say all fat people are this or that.

She is really fat. But guess what, she doesn't have to react to anyone's e-mailed comments. The fatty gets what she deserves by reading this guy's letter on air. She could have e-mailed him back a snarky letter, or hit the delete button and not given this guy any attention at all. But that's not what she decided to do. She decided to bring attention to the subject that makes them both look bad, he looks like a dick, and she looks over-sensitive..and fat.

This reminds me of the Southpark where Cartman shows the picture of him with Butters dick in his mouth.

I don't have a problem with that. Don't really agree, but don't have a problem.

I do have a problem when this ham beast takes a personal email that isn't insulting and tries to spin it into an issue of public bullying. It shows that, while she may not hate herself, she certainly isn't comfortable in her own skin and will try and turn any critisism over her bad choices to something like "racism".

gadian: Stone her!


You were just off the mark before, but now you are just making shiat up.

gadian: Still a good example


As I said above it isn't just that she is fat (she is) it is that she compares a non-insulting critisism of her lifestyle to racist remarks. She is a fat crybaby attention whore, and that I can't abide.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: So you can't tell someone they have a health issue that they're apparently ignoring in the hope that they might listen and live a longer and healthier life, or can you just not do it with someone you haven't met face to face?
I don't know what the hell is wrong with you people. If I pack on extra weight and it becomes visible, I'd hope someone would let me know.


If you're so dumb that you don't know when you're fat, then you probably shouldn't be posting on Fark. The only time it is any of your business to tell a stranger how to manage their health is if you're their doctor. But since you're so good with invading others' business, go ahead--go tell the fat guy in the biker bar what a pig he is. He should, and I'm sure will, thank you for caring.  Because that's why you'd do it, right? Not just because you're a douche.

I do not expect people to change.
It is not other people's responsibility to change to avoid hurting my feelings.
I don't like how it makes me feel when people make fun of me.
I decided to change this.
I started to walk everywhere.
I started to eat healthy foods.
I changed my lifestyle.
I have lost 20 pounds in 2 months.
Sometimes, it is hard to maintain this new lifestyle.
Sometimes, I still overeat.
I am still fat.
But I am less fat than before.
I feel better.
I feel better about myself.
I have a long way to go, but I will get there.

If I was so dumb that I couldn't tell when I was fat, apparently fark would be the perfect place to post.

Someone sent her an email saying she was fat.
She took time out of the farking news to read the email aloud like a teacher who finds a class note about themselves.
She went into a long, self-righteous, soapbox speech about how she won't be brought down.
Her brother is a movie star who lends her his support.

So, at this point, I don't GAF that she's fat. There are a ton of more annoying reasons why she's intolerable.

I've got no problem with her calling out that moran who sent the letter but unless this was one of many letters sent to her by him it wasn't bullying.

I know a little bit about bullying and this ain't it.

Still would be nice if she slimmed down a little, it would be better for her, her husband, her marriage and her kids.
 
2012-10-04 03:56:17 PM
She is absolutely without question fat. Not morbidly obese but definitely fat. If she enjoys being fat and accepts the undeniable health risks, fine. Denying that she is fat is stupid. As is defending it as a good state of being, IMHO.
 
2012-10-04 03:56:28 PM
My favorite part of that whole video is how she said she has think skin and the letter doesn't bother her, but then she gets so visibly upset that she starts losing her breath. I swear I thought she was gonna start wheezing. That would have made laugh so hard I would have peed my pants.

Considering the premise of the letter was rude and basically asking her to stop being fat on TV, I thought it was nicely worded and professional. She was neither.

fickenchucker: 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.


I just wanted to quote this again, because it's one of the more truly idiotic things I've seen in an already very idiotic thread. Being overweight is "not socially acceptable on any level." Think about how wrong that is, both factually and ethically. Obviously being overweight is not literally unacceptable in society. Society is full of overweight people. More now than ever before. It's a public health crisis, as has been pointed out numerous times in this thread. So obviously, overweight people are not being shunned by society, in general. Think about how many overweight people you know in your family and circle of friends. Do you refuse to speak to them because they're fat? Yeah, I didn't think so. So society does indeed find overweight people acceptable.

So let's assume that fickenchucker is saying that it SHOULDN'T be acceptable "on any level." Think about what kind of society that would be. How would overweight people have to be treated if they were truly unacceptable on any level. What's the worst, most unacceptable segment of society now? The worst I can come up with is pedophiles. We lock them up, keep them away from the general public, and force them to get treatment. Try to wrap your head around the fact that fickenchucker wants us to lock up overweight people. That's a helluva mindset to live in.

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.



This. The man is a self-loather who hides his insecurity behind a veil of sanctimony. Any decent human being with even moderate social skills can see right through that and for who he really is. Thus I'm not too surprised that there are a lot of farkers who side with him.

That letter is not so much about her as it is about him, and it is desperately pitiful.

We lock them up, keep them away from the general public, and force them to get treatment. Try to wrap your head around the fact that fickenchucker wants us to lock up overweight people. That's a helluva mindset to live in.


Think more along the lines of smokers.

someonelse: fickenchucker: 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.

I just wanted to quote this again, because it's one of the more truly idiotic things I've seen in an already very idiotic thread. Being overweight is "not socially acceptable on any level." Think about how wrong that is, both factually and ethically. Obviously being overweight is not literally unacceptable in society. Society is full of overweight people. More now than ever before. It's a public health crisis, as has been pointed out numerous times in this thread. So obviously, overweight people are not being shunned by society, in general. Think about how many overweight people you know in your family and circle of friends. Do you refuse to speak to them because they're fat? Yeah, I didn't think so. So society does indeed find overweight people acceptable.

We live in a polite society that generally goes out of its way to mind its own business. But deep in its private thoughts, those held itself in order to enable a "live and let live" outward niceness, lies reality. That reality is fatties are gross and show the world a perfect example of limited self control in regards to eating habits.

/You sound fat.

CSB Time

This all has reminded me of a college professor who was really, really large. She used the elevator to get to her office (on the 4th floor) and to get to class (most were on the 2nd and 3rd). I was in the first class of her teaching day at 9:55 am. It was those days I would see her come into the building as I was on my way to my 8:50 class which was just down the hall from where we had our 9:55. As I hoofed it to the stairwell, she would take the elevator like clockwork for those three days of the week. Another guy was in both of my classes and he saw this too. He had the bright idea to test her ability to use the stairs. He went to class early that day for our 8:50 and put a "ELEVATOR OUT OF SERVICE" sign on the elevator door. Walking to class I noticed her walk up to the elevator with a discouraged look on her face. I kept on my way to my 8:50. Class was over, went down the hall to my 9:55 and there was a sign on the dry eraser board that said "ALL CLASSES CANCELED TODAY FOR PROFESSOR S". Shaking my head, I turned to see my classmate with a shiat eating grin on his face.

If you have a professor that uses an elevator and don't feel like going to class, give it a try.

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.


No she didn't. She threw a whiney temper tantrum characteristic of someone with poor self-control. Her tirade was embarrassing to watch.

WhippingBoy: So can I now add "bullying" to my list of words that no longer have any meaning?


Yep.

Anyone else think her husband made a big deal out of the fat email so she would take her disgusting cottage-cheesiness seriously and drop a few elbys, so he wouldn't have to look at this every time she drops a sock on the way from the dryer to the bedroom?

theflatline: 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.


So.. you've read her medical history? You know her blood/thyroid/liver functions?

oh, that's right, you haven't.

You don't need to read private medical records to visually observe that someone is grossly overweight. She's fat.

Seriously theflatline, you have no gauge on how many thyroids she eats.

Smokers aren't currently "unacceptable on any level" either. And nobody is arguing that we should shut them out of society, as fickenchucker is with overweight people.

theflatline: To be fair the story was picked up nationally for the last few days, I have seen it two days in a row on multiple networks here in Florida, morning and nightly news


That's what I meant about winning the YouTube lottery. When she responded, she probably didn't expect than many people outside of her regular viewing area to see it.
Or, maybe it blew up when the husband wrote the Facebook post about it. But even then, he didn't really have a reasonable expectation of the Facebook page for his local news station to turn into a national news story.

All I'm saying is she's a biatch, but she's not necessarily a national-media attention grabbing biatch.

/ Unless she called her famous brother up and asked him to help publicize it.
