I saw this video on YouTube and was so proud of the way this woman maintained her poise and demeanor. She was condemned for her looks. She is obviously a good reporter. But one man didn’t find her attractive according to his rules and possibly the rest of society’s.
I think this woman is smart, beautiful, graceful and articulate. I don’t think you have to be a size two in order to be beautiful, although I don’t think that a size two is ugly. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
Just because someone has an opinion about someone’s weight does not give them the right to be so judgmental or cruel. I do wonder if the man who wrote that email to her was brave enough to sign his full and real name to that email. If he didn’t, I think he is a coward. If you have the nerve to say something like that, you should have the nerve to step up and own it. And I also wonder if this man is perfectly fit or has model looks? If he doesn’t, then he needs to keep his mouth shut and keep his fingers off that keyboard. Frankly, even if he does have the perfect physique and model looks, he shouldn’t berate someone. He needs to focus on his own life. Obviously he has some issues. Putting others down in order to make yourself feel good is not a good thing. I hope this man feels proud of himself now. These kinds of words are indeed bullying. Don’t be that person. It’s as easy to lift someone’s spirit as it is to knock them down. Try it. See how good that feels!
