    Some men think that every woman has a moral obligation to society to fit their standards of sexual attractiveness. The best thing to do with these men is to neuter them in the hopes of improving their disposition and reducing the amount of interaction they have with women regardless of their body type.

    Did they cause their legs not to work? In fairness, the comparison wholey invalid. Someone in a wheel chair would likely be in one due to a chronic disease or some incident. This woman is fat because she eats too much.

The only type of discrimination case this woman would have would be if they didn't apply the same standard in their treatment of male, on air employees as they do her. The viewers aren't her direct employers and are entitled to whatever opinion they wish to express about the station's personnel. You can't stop someone from having a biased opinion.
    It's not like she has a real job, right?

    Ah, here we go with the "she eats too much" BS. My mother was the same size as her and growing up, I watched her eating habits. My mom didn't eat too much. There was something wrong with her physically and she just couldn't lose weight no matter what type of diet or diet pills she tried using. This is the problem with the american view. We have had skinny women shoved in our faces for so long that we immediately assume an overweight person simply eats too much. What happened to the days when men desired women with weight on them? Look at the pin up models from the '40s and '50s. Today they would be considered fat, but that is what men desired.

    If I could go backwards in time and stop that first photo shoot with Jean Shrimpton, our society would view overweight women completely different then they do today. The whole supermodel movement of the '60s has damaged our society. I personally think 90% of the women I see on TV could use a big mac and a large soda. They are way too skinny. Most of them lack talent as well since they are picked for their looks, not their brains. Give me intelligence over looks any day of the week.
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    Then maybe he can show some class and intelligence by not insulting others like he did.
