Sizist Catty Drivel - and I'm being nice about it.
26 August 2005 | by clairus99See all my reviews

Loose Women is insipid cheap ITV fare. A bunch of haggard Z-list celebs in the over-40 bracket who cannot even get work on soaps or reality shows sit around and moan about how they're not beautiful any more and how crap their lives are. They want to be the forum for women in this country, but they seem to spend more time bitching about other women than anything else.

They had some jackass on the show today who's gone to the trouble of writing a book on how much he hates fat people. A moron who admits he lived in LA for a while explains his obsession with other people's weight and in oppressing them with his hate. He's no brain of his own and wants to be loved and accepted by the people he wishes he were. Anything that threatens that you fear and so hate. You hate fat because you fear it, it's that simple.

They're an easy target. No researched debate on this issue, on the claims that obese people look terrible, eat nothing but fast food and cost him, the taxpayer, money by using up all the money from the NHS, NO!!! Nothing about how smokers, drug abusers and people who come here purely to abuse the NHS system and go home to the middle east or beyond (I've known people who've admitted to doing this).

I'm one of these "fat" people and the last time I went to hospital was 8 years ago for a fracture. Nothing to do with fat! I've seen my GP twice this year - to get allergy tablets and for moles. Neither fat-induced. I have no health issues because I don't smoke or do drugs. I eat a lot and some of the wrong things but eat a varied diet. I have fast food maybe once a week, but my job means that I get what I'm given or have nothing. Even so, what business is it of ANYONE else's?

What infuriated me though, is not this idiot, but the support it received from this panel of self-obsessed and self-righteous bitches. Apart from the damage this does to accept of fat people even less, they've thrown their own fear and hate venom in!

By media terms these women are over the hill, ugly and useless. They're comfortable at bitching about their industry colleagues who are successful, working and/or looked up to. They do it all the time. They're not getting any younger, they're in an industry where women are judged, every inch. Aware of their disappearing youths, that their best is behind them, they know they're lucky to have this job where the unemployed/unemployable just might value their opinions.

Not wanting to risk losing that job or getting another, they'd rather not have a "different" opinion - so basically they just pretend to be radical and speak for all women. So, sheep-like, they too are obsessed with their looks (not that obsessed, judging by their faces, wrinkles and clothes). Being relatively slim is all they've got. No wonder they're venomous toward fat people too, why not?

What if I went on their spouting about homosexuality is immoral, depraved and insane? Or that anorexics are self-obsessed victims who just need to eat something? What if I said society is fallen because black people are barbarians who never graduated from the jungle (btw I've never seen a black presenter on there).

It wouldn't happen, of course, because these opinions are out-dated and stupid.

They harped on about how it's the individual's responsibility and that people should make an effort to lose weight. I agree. I say we all go out for a walk or to the gym when this piffle is on.

The hypocrites they are, they talked about giving up smoking and how they hate being told not to...

This is a person whose eventual cancer will cost the NHS (probably has already), and not just her but passive smokers around her. She has children who see her smoke, teaching them that it's okay - even though she tells them it's terrible. They'll suck off the NHS too.

Hypocrite, hate-mongerer, NHS-abuser and a bad parent too.

Even if my weight did mean I take money from the NHS - I PAID INTO IT YOU IDIOT!!

This programme is a daily bitch to find someone they can look down upon and be disgusted by, to make themselves feel better. They think they are better than their audience and represent them. They don't.

Perhaps then I'm too fat to watch the programme and I would encourage anyone else who doesn't fit into a size 12 not to watch. God forbid it's catching...
