Ummm... what?  So she's saying she was just standing there, minding her own business and some random stranger just picks her out of a crowd and dumps his drink on her?  I'm glad that she lost all of that weight and now feels much better about herself, but... that story?  Not saying shenanigans, but....


You know, now that I've re-read this, I'm a little confused as to the events she describes.  He approached her, THEN turned around and threw a drink in her face? What, over his shoulder? Did he do a little pirouette?  Now I'm picturing an incredibly flamboyant man dancing for her before insulting her and saturating her face with booze.

I don't know, the fact that it happened doesn't surprise me, the fact that she wants to meet the guy because he goaded her into losing weight strikes me as odd.

People say rude things to fat people all the time.

Yesterday I was in the local natural foods co-op buying some things.  (not to be hipster, but because they've got an excellent selection of bulk herbs and spices.)  The cashier says to the fat white woman in line in front of me "don't take this the wrong way, but from the side I thought you were Honey Boo Boo's mom."

First off, anytime you start a sentence with "don't take this the wrong way" maybe it shouldn't be said because it most likely will.  I have to wonder how the cashier would have reacted if she were told "don't take this the wrong way, but you look just like the maid on the Jefferson's".

Cue thatsracist.jpg.  But what is the difference?

Oh yea, the fat lady can go on a diet and lose weight so that makes it better?  Still totally uncalled for.

Nogale: I can't condone behavior like this, and fat shaming has been shown to be largely (hah) ineffective. However, a big part of living fat is denial, and there are certain cases in which a nasty comment or an unpleasant encounter throws a switch. The denial mechanism goes on the fritz.

I know, I'm living proof. Five years ago I was about 230 pounds (at 5'7"). One night, I guy I was seeing said out of the blue, "You know, you've got a nice face and great tits. Why don't you lose some weight?"

It took a little while to sink in, but I did eventually drop a few pounds. In January 2010 I started working out with a friend who is a personal trainer. At the time I weighed 212. Some of the weight came off, and when I moved away two months later I took up running. Over time I dropped a total of nearly 60 pounds (and became a distance runner.)

/// Sadly, the tits shrank from a D cup to a B. RIP boobies ;-(


I think you should let us judge.

Who cares, nothing to see here. ...

Woman loses weight, gets recognition, and looks hittable for the first time in her life.  Who cares?  The guy who threw the drink in her face, him I'd like to have a chat with and see what the real circumstances were...  I  see the conversation going something like this:

"So this cow comes up to me, randomly in the bar, drunk as hell, and puts her hand on my chest.  She says, "Comin' back to my place to play?"  Looking deep into my eyes and licking her lips, she reaches her cloven hoof down towards my crotch..."

There's something to be said for one's units of weight based on the King's testicles.

As for the story: "O wad some Pow'r the giftie gie us/To see oursels as ithers see us!" I mean, the guy wasting his drink was just a louse.

It's time to try again. Those opposed to the metric system are dying out. Let's do this.

Besides, they don't even know that they are already using it. My mom says she's too old for the metric system... then asks me to pick up a 2 liter coke and a bottle of 81mg aspirin.

I guess I should ask her if I should be picking up 1/128 of a hogshead Cokes and 1 1/4 grain aspirins.
