BBC News - Wisconsin WBKT-TV host 'bully message' goes viral
I am a just annoyed by this arrogant, ignorant woman. Someone writes to her and tells her that she is a fat slob and she should get in shape because she is a role model on TV and she turns it into a crusade against bullying.
Now, I ain't advocating all tv celebrities should be thin and rakish, but, really, a fat chick turning a comment on her obesity into a crusade against bullies? Give me a break, she is fat, she could do with a few less fish suppers and some bloke told her so. She didn't like that and went on the attack calling it 'bullying' and likening it to racism. Fucking fat bitch should go on a diet or get off tv. Simple. I strongly believe that this vein of thinking in some countries where the fat defend their right to be fat is just terrible. There are very sound (and proven) health reasons to be in shape, we shouldn't be telling people (or sending the subtle message) that it is ok to be fat. Fat is the biggest killer in the world.
To the fat cow - stop trying to promote fatness. It is just wrong.
Oh, and you ain't fat because you have a slow digestive system. You are fat because you drive everywhere, eat badly and take no exercise.

It happens in countries where people get enough to eat.
I was gonna post this video, but then realized there are more important issues like Chinese guy getting steamrolled with his brains splattered on pavement and Chinese government hiding the "incident" by censoring media so the story is practically impossible to find. I was going to post the link to that too, but then realized the poor guy would have probably been made fun off considering we are just a bunch of keyboard warriors on anonymous internet forum with no life. So I didn't post a link to that too.
^^tis the reason why health services cost so much nowadays...All I am saying is that this wasn't bullying and this fat slob shouldn't turn (correct) criticism of her obesity into some bullying crusade. It ain't, the bloke just sent her an e-mail pointing out that she had been obese for a long period of time and that it wasn't the best role-model. Fat cow SHOULD lose weight, she should not be a burden on society and she shouldn't think it is ok to be fat. Fatness is entirely a self -inflicted wound.
I really didn't get it either. She should really take her health into consideration and exercise.
It seems like she is saying it is ok to be fat
^no point in trying to turn this into a debate on those issues - fatness IS self-inflicted, fatness IS a drain on society and fatness is bad for your health. I strongly believe that we should never give the impression that obesity is ok and it is a right to be as fat as you like. fatness has caused massive issues with the health services in many countries, it has nothing to do with all the issues you are bringing up.
Obesity is a self-inflicted wound and it is a burden on others. It is not ok to be fat and I defend anyone's right to tell any fat person that they are...well...fat. It really is that simple. Being a dyke is just being a dyke, no one has any right to tell a dyke how they should live. Poverty is not a choice (ok, for some it is), so no, it is not ok to tell someone not to be poor.
Fatness is a choice - a choice in lifestyle and it is the burden of that choice that annoys me. The other things you mention are not a burden on me because it is my duty to support any people who are victimized through issues they have not chosen. You don't choose to be black (or any other mionority), you just are, and you don't choose to be a dyke. We all have a duty to defend minorities. Fat fuckers have a choice. Walk a little, eat less pizza and ffs stop being a burden on me...
As part of my sister's medical training she had to spend a time on whichever type of ward it is that gives people gastric bypass surgery... she said it was truely sickening, and not just the asthetics of it. The 'success' rate is fairly high, in as much as the surgery happened, few people suffered adverse reactions to it and a few months later most people had lost a considerable amount of weight.
The problem was that the success of it was measured a few months down the line, and not a bit longer, where you would start to see major medical problems caused precisely because of the fact that the smaller stomache didn't quench the patient's hunger/phsychological need to eat, just made it more difficult. Turned out that many of these success stories had to be admited again, under much more dangerous circumstances, to fix what is, in effect, a split stomach.
The other worrying part of it is, in a society where we are on the very brink of having the NHS privitised, these things ARE a massive drain. So is smoking of course, but at least the outrageous tax of tobacco goes in some way to fit the bill. How much tax is there on cheetos??
As YMNSTT points out, at least with smoking and drinking their is all kinds of direct taxation going on to pay for the habit. Eating too many pies does not cause any more taxation than someone who eats a moderate amount of pies, yet the medical bills are far, far more.
^^...confusing morbid obesity with simply being overweight, I'm afraid, but that's beside the point: bullying people whose physical/personal qualities you don't like is an attempt to put yourself above those whom you disapprove of...no matter if the venue is a schoolyard, a bar, a private home, or an email...apparently, your only personal failing is that you know what's best for others, using public scorn and contempt to encourage behavioral change...that's bullying...
