Please stop with the anti-fat/anti-trans attacks on Republican morons

Ann Coulter is not disgusting because she "looks like a man", or "is a man" or any similar anti-transgendered/transsexual rhetoric. She is disgusting because she is an ASSHOLE, and an unintelligent, smarmy one at that. She is a fucking asshole. She is gutter trash. Plenty of people in the trans communities support Democrats and President Obama.

Chris Christy is not disgusting because he is "fat", or "huge, or even morbidly obese. He is disgusting because he is also a gigantic ASSHOLE, a pathetic loser who is going to get his smarmy, pathetic ass kicked next November. There are plenty of overweight individuals who support Democrats and President Obama.

Thanks.

5. I think both their bodies reflect an inner self-loathing...

Coulter is anorexic and Christy is morbidly obese. When they combine such self-inflicted torture with their extreme vitriol toward others, it stands to reason that people might want to point it out.

I do agree with your comment about Coulter and mannishness. She represents every negative masculine trait and none of the men in my life are anything like Ann Coulter. Most trans people do not act like her at all.

61. Really? Am morbidly obese and if you get enough people hating you and saying how disgusting

 

you are while attending church or going grocery shopping minding your own business then maybe you can see why people feel the way they feel. I had surgery to lose the weight. I can't tell you how many diets I have been on to lose weight. Hell I'd be a millionaire the weight I lost. I just look at food and the weight hugs me. I tried everything. Finally I learn to say "fuck it" you don't like it then don't look. It took me years of a wonderful husband who is thin to tell me to stop beating myself because he loved me for me. It took me a long time til it clicked. Am still heavy but I stopped beating myself about my weight. The thing I noticed that now am still fat but I stay maybe 5 to 10 pounds within my weight I am now. People who are morbidly obese know they are and surely don't need to be reminded all the time. What bothers me is people who don't have a weight problem think we love being fat and we are lazy. That is a lie. All people should do is respect a person. Now I do dislike Coulter and Christy. I am just as guilty calling them names. The poster is right. I am going to try not to do it any longer.

136. I knew my opinion would not be popular

I understand that it is very difficult because our body both requires food for survival and the ability to lose weight requires something that goes against one's body's basic need. I am not saying that all people who are obese or anorexic are hateful, but those who are hateful and have body issues are really really really pathetic.

10. I'M Fat. Christie is a pig who is dangerously overweight and shows his opinion of himself

I take multiple medications that prevent weight loss, he's just a slob. He runs a state, he should have go on the Biggest Loser, but that's too obvious.


Christie is disgusting because he is a pig, fat is secondary.

Plenty of fine people are overweight. What is repulsive about him is how he chooses to act and talk, not about something over which he has little control.

126. It's a discussion forum, so I'll interject into the discussion myself:

I prefer the phrase "call a spade a bloody shovel." It is a British usage of the phrase that you used that some find extremely offensive, and it means to be "extremely blunt".

The English language has many ways to express an opinion, and has the potential to be extremely colorful in a good way -- colloquialisms have their place. But if you'd said what you said back during the 2008 Primary season, you would have had a lot more than just that small amount of snark. Given that you are a long-term DUer, I'm sure you remember this.

And I wonder why the targets are two Republicans that are being 'defended' here.


Makes one wonder why certain key words are being used. And makes me wonder why it seems some folks have been here before, it's the way words are used......telling us not to get angry or we'll be sorry......


(sigh) Like I said, long after I'm gone I'll be laughing my ass off at the nanny squad who will be discovered as not from this side of the political spectrum. But they won't have learned of the big red X that makes their rants invisible until that day comes wen they are irrelevant.

Some posters are super sensitive and take umbrage way too easily. Can't tell you how many times I have served as a DU juror because someone has taken offense and alerted on posts or phrases within posts that really don't warrant such action. Then there are the snarky responses that are veiled forms of insult and ugliness, as you'll note in a poster's reply to my first reply to you. Talk about a class act... Gee whiz

But if I call out your religious views, it is because I do not trust that "thinking" in the White House. I have no more respect for most other religions in that I am a non theist. I would not be so crass, or I hope not, toward you as a person and your right to believe as you will. I have a great disdain for church and state coming any closer together than the distance from here to Mars. This is where my callous comments come in. And where my interpretation of the constitution is concerned, there are no holds barred. (Except body structure comments )

94. Sure would.

If his beliefs included the promotion of a theocracy.

But the catcher for me is, we don't know what his religious bent is... necessarily. That is good. It's vague to me the average American... that's the way I want it. There have been a lot of rumors about his religious leaning and he has referred to himself as being a Christian on occasion, but I don't really know and I haven't seen him practice it in public outside of the ceremonial processes of the President. I also don't want to know what he thinks about religion because it isn't an issue.

Another example, I have met John Huntsman and his wife. He comes from a Mormon background, she is Catholic. But I would have never known that fact if someone hadn't told me. He specifically refuses to confuse his beliefs with his politics and has said so. I can respect that. I wouldn't vote for him but that is not the point.

Mitt Romney is Mormon. He supports it and has not proved to me he does not mix his Mormonism with politics. Quite the contrary. Even though the Mormon church has recently distanced themselves from Mr. Romney, Mr. Romney hasn't distanced himself from the Mormon church.

Personally, I think the Mormon church is more dangerous than some other Christian sects because of it's secrecy and it's history. I won't go any further than that on this point; it's been said to exhaustion on this site and it's not the subject of our conversation. It's my personal experience.

I'm sure that my being an atheist would be a problem for some too, but then I'm not running for president.

I haven't seen evidence of Romney pushing Mormonism upon society. It's bad enough that he wants to hit America with the religious cult of Laissez-Faire Capitalism.

2. Because of this, unless you would like to start a rumble, it is not a good idea to post a thread chastising others for doing something you personally find offensive unless DU rules have been broken. You don't control others, you control you. You also control which posts and posters here you can ignore entirely. This feature will save you a lot of stress if you use it.

It disgusts me and people that use any of the words above are scum IMO.

like the middle class white man will vote for repug for masculinity identification, against his interest, the progressive male will continue the misogyny for masculinity identification also.

it is when the man buys into the commercialized conditioning of masculinity that they no longer have ownership with their authentic self... masculinity. it hurts them individually more than a group as a whole. they do nto get it. they think there is a reward, but that reward does not win over the repercussions. i have seen it repeatedly in the personal stories told on du.

As for Christy, I bet his asshole is not that large either, and while he might be smarmy and pathetic, his asshole is surely a champion athlete in the world of assholes in general, as his bulk can attest. Although his policies and actions may be disgusting, I can assure you that everything he ate was delicious and exquisitely gastronomic, the polar opposite of the "disgusting" label which you paint onto this truly exceptional asshole. Merely shifting the "ugly' from his fat to his asshole is not commendable, IMHO, ergo I propose we denigrate his brain such as to lay the blame at least closer to the ground zero of stupid.

The two republican brainiacs in question clearly have ugly, disgusting BRAINS.

I don't like this PC shit anyway. I call liars and crooks like I see them, Christy is a fat fucking douche and Coulter does look like a man, fucking bitch.

Now, I have no problem with overweight people or women that look like men, but when they start to denigrate other people, like Coulter using the word "retard" and saying about widows of 9/11 victims "I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much.", or when Christie told a veteran "Your rear end is going to be thrown in jail, idiot", or the press "Are you stupid...I'm sorry for the idiot over there." Then they asked for it and opened themselves up for ridicule about their appearance.

All's fair in love and war.

I'm not going to sit around and say,"Oh goodness, those people are mean but I'm going to play nice." Bullshit!

106. You have not grasped the basic point: those insults hurt the community, not just the target

The point is that the problem with Coulter is the crap and hatred she spews. So target that, or use insults that apply universally, and which don't single out one community as having something that is 'wrong'. So call her an asshole, shithead or whatever. Don't call her a 'bitch' (an insult reserved for women, which implies there's something wrong with being a loud woman), don't say she looks like a man, which is irrelevant to anything wrong with her, and which implies there is something wrong in a woman looking like a man (and don't say that she is a transexual, which implies there's something wrong with that).

There are liberals who have the same type of looks - it's not that, it's their inner ugliness.

My favorite author, Jane Austen, had characters who said "there is no personal defect which an agreeable manner will not reconcile one too"

In other words, beautiful on the outside people who are ugly on the inside will show up ugly in the long run, and vice versa.

127. The term that offends me the most is "beached whale".

When I was in junior high and early high school, I was in the overweight category for my height (but not obese), and was dating a gentleman who went to a different school. One of his friends teased him about dating me, referring to me as a "beached whale". Apparently the guy I was dating went not-so-gentlemanly and hit his "friend" for it. Hearing him tell me this made me feel not only bad about myself, but for him for getting slack about dating a fat chick.

One of the first ways that the human mind embraces bigotry is to attempt to make the person or group they are bigoted against less than human.

Likewise, Christy is an MF, period. He just happens to be overweight, but he manages to be disgusting all on his own, completely divorced from anything to do with his weight or appearance.

114. i cannot understand anyone with half a brain say what she does is wrong, yet insist when they do the

same thing, it is not wrong.

my brain can not wrap around that.

as far as progressives using misogynist language? i have always said it is not a party issue, it is a male issue, party excluded.

141. It IS about Ann Coulter

I can't believe YOU don't get it. She is the one of the most despicable human beings alive today. There is NO defense of that woman. None. Especially on DU. DU ain't what it used to be.

143. First of all, I'm not a man so I'll thank you to sit on your "misogynist language" meme.

Second, Here you have this woman who did go to some fancy college who KNOWS that Obama graduated Suma Cum Laude calling him a ret**d and she's getting told off for it left and right and down the middle. Does she care? NO. All the attention makes her more money and THAT is what she cares about.

The kid from the Special Olympics tells her he doesn't understand how she means what she said and I support him in his efforts, but he'll never reach her. SHE chooses to be the way she is because this stupid little harpy game is all she's got. She COULD use her brain and come up with something but she just "bitches" about what other people do who are trying to make the world a better place.

When Barbara Streisand stood up in Hollywood and demanded to be treated with respect for her talents, she was called a B****. THAT was misogyny.

When Michelle Obama goes out and does good things and all anyone can talk about is her dress, that is borderline misogyny.

But if you got a pig out in the mud rolling around and you call it a "dirty swine," you are simply telling the truth.

Coulter is a BITCH. It's how she makes her living. Snarling and snapping and tearing up other people whenever she can. She does it intentionally. She's selling herself short. I didn't tell her to live that way, but I see the truth of it and I call it as I see it.

147. i figured you were not a man, and yet, you still defend a sexist slur

not because it is not a sexist slur. but because you do not like the woman you throw it at.

coulter using a slur against mentally slow was being a bigot.

using a sexist slur against coulter is being a sexist.

whether she deserves it or not.

it really isnt rocket science. and as i say, i have a tough time in my mind how people can separate using a sexist slur against one person and another, and be comfortable with the contradiction and hypocrisy.

148. It's called giving someone a dose of their own medicine.

She is a woman who has earned that title because of her egregious behavior. Is Obama in ANY way intellectually challenged? NO. She is calling him an offensive word that in no way describes him and insults an entire group of people.

SHE behaves in the manner that the word was coined to define. I call her "bitch" to cull her from our ranks and to denounce her right to being defended against sexist terms because HER behavior is more offensive than a sexist term that is descriptive of her actions.

She is an educated women who KNOWS the facts, but lies to everyone. Traitor is probably the more descriptive word, but she dishonors women everywhere and that is why so many of us reject her completely.

I believe that people can learn from their mistakes, but show me a career criminal or a psychopath and I tell you that person needs to be locked up and denied their freedom to protect the community. Without an actual law broken, we can't do this to Ann Coulter, but she is just as dangerous to our freedom and our community. So we marginalize her to diminish her sway on the public. Sorry if it's also a tactic used by sexist groups against women who are doing good in the community because it steps on male power.

I'm a 98% peaceful person, but there are times when peace is not possible and fighting for your right to survive is the only choice. So call me a Liberal Hawk because I don't lay down and take any and all abuse with a passive Christian heart. But do not call me a War Monger and disregard that 98% of my entire life and values.

It isn't as much a "contradiction or hypocrisy" as it is a drawing of a line putting her outside the circle of protection. Women who want to be protected by the "sisterhood" don't lie on behalf of and promote those into power who would take our rights away.

142. Seriously? I knew that *ush's Mom had delicate ears... but I'm blue collar DU.

OK, I work in a more white collar job, but I grew up working for a living at any rate.

Someone like Ann Coulter who says the most hateful things about any DEM is just a snarling, snapping, attack bitch. Sorry. She is acting like a dog whose only desire is to maul and maim. A mal-adjusted beast who is a danger to those around her.

You can dress her up in pretty words all you want, but she'll still bite you like a viper would.

Think of it this way. Words are our weapons of choice. We are PISSED because we've been dealing with this Reich Wing Queen for years and she has no soul and she's heartless too. We aren't out shooting up innocent people at a movie theater.

AND I don't CALL myself a DEMocrat. I AM A DEM. You don't like my language, move along you're not being asked to pass judgement on me and DU has been BLUE language wise for a long time.

105. And please cut the "bony-ass" and "old-bald-guy" attacks on republicans.

Thin people, old people and bald people have feelings too you know.

In fact, stop all attacks on nasty Republicans.

121. I prefer "morAn".

It differentiates between those who have true intellectual disabilities and those who have a brain but just don't care to use it. My little brother and sister are intellectually disabled. They use the word "retard" sometimes, not referring to themselves or to people with actual intellectual disabilities, but to people who are acting below their actual capacity. I think that's a great context for the word "moran" when I use it.

In general everyday speech, the term does not roll off the tongue, as it's an internet meme. But online, if someone is acting like a moran, that's the way I'll say it.

120. I've said similar things in the past, hon.

You did it in a more short-and-sweet version.

Us embracing those types of attacks against our opposition does nothing but promote bigotry and discrimination, something our party SHOULD be standing against, no matter how we might feel about the particular individuals you named. I ended up with someone putting me on ignore because I believe all bigotry comes from the same place in the human mind/heart, and therefore it doesn't matter which group we are bigoted against -- the Oppression Olympics got won back in the '40s I believe, so let's not try to compare other people's struggles except to say they all come from the same evil seed -- if we are demonstrating bigotry, we are embracing the roots of oppression.

I'll call myself a bitch, but I generally don't call other women that, even ones I disagree with as strongly as I do Ann. And calling her "mAnn", as I've seen here many times, is an insult to the trans community, as you said. I am a woman and I stand with my trans allies, but I admit that my own struggles with bigotry and discrimination, with teasing and bullying, were from my previous obesity. I currently have less than a 20 BMI, but I used to be morbidly obese. And it is amazing the difference in how people treat me. I am happy to have been female-spirited and born female-bodied, so I will never see the difference between the way a woman is treated versus a man... nor do I have the struggle the trans community is continually enduring. I lost weight for my health, not because of people's opinions about me. But having been fat all my life, the difference in how I am treated highlights the bigotry we have against the overweight in this country.

Ann and Chris are disgusting because of their personalities, not their outward appearance. To judge someone on their outward appearance rather than the content of their character, or to assume that the content of their character is correlated to their outward appearance, is the definition of bigotry (and I've seen people's opinions change in a heartbeat when a person could "pass" -- be it for straight, white, skinny, genetically male, genetically female, whatever -- and they learned a person's true identity, so I stand by that definition as part of the extreme change common among all the bigots I've seen do this is to suddenly "see" outward reflections they didn't notice before, and see them more prominently because they were so upset they didn't "catch" it).

All bigotry is wrong. All oppression is wrong. We cannot compare the struggles of ourselves and others except to recognize that the struggles exist and to attempt to fight against bigotry whenever we have the opportunity.

Thank YOU for taking that opportunity.

Someone just get a theater somewhere and have about 10 people re-enact it.

133. But I do agree with the trans shit, if only because people still don't understand it

enough to make any kind of proper observation about it all. transexuals are treated very poorly, even by feminists.

But all in good time, I suppose.

People who abuse the power they have will ALWAYS get it from every end and quarter. And that's hardly even 1% of the world. Humor is the only power some will ever have against them.

Speaking as one fat fuck who is dragging around 40 extra pounds, i found "The King of Donuts" to be very funny indeed for Christie.

If it's funny to me, I'll laugh. If someone thinks I'm a piece of shit for it, so be it. Go write letters to every other episode of the Simpsons. And ten thousand other things in the culture.

Holy fuck, i'm so happy that I can laugh at all anymore, it is just an absolutely fucking thrilling thing to me.

I'll take looking juvenile over a crank any day...and now I'm looking like BOTH...GOD DAMMIT! Swell.

135. Or supercede those reasons entirely

Coulter threads that emphasize the fact that she's a hateful little fiend who opposes women's suffrage and openly advocates for genocide? Go for it. The ones where her name's mentioned somewhere in the OP and most of the responses are the "Mann Coulter" bullshit? I'm better than those, and I'd like to see the site as a whole be as well more often.

144. Please Forgive Us!!!

We are truly in a battle for the Presidency. And sometimes we forget that we sometimes use language that is borderline or may be hurtful. Most of it comes with frustration. But as reasonable people when you offend someone you should look at the merits of their point and have compassion in thought and response. I must say I am guilty of strong rhetoric at times. But it does not mean that I am so bogged down in my position where i cannot say I apologize when I offend or hurt someones feelings. And If I feel I am right I will not apologize. But will be silent.
