Big Girls should take the stairs NOT the elevator

CdK - Recognizing one's own faults often is no less a challenge than laughing at one's self. I won't argue your contention that I have been doing as you alledge, but I will say, if so, it has been neither consciously nor maliciously. No need here for you to provide example, though if you feel otherwise no objection to your doing so. I'm sure if you did not feel you have reason to state the position, you would not have done so.

making him write a paper about how bad he was... we must have written our posts at the same time, so the sense was lost. On top of the politcal correctness.
This has just turned into a hornets nest

Perhaps the self-appointed exercise guru has a history of publically posting untactful comments?

I am echoing everyone else's thoughts on this article..


What the F**K ?????

That is in NO way sexual harassment. The only way this could have been classified sexual harassment is if some ' big girl ' took offence, blew it out of proportion, and then threatened legal action if nothing was done about it.IF that is the case, then this is an example of gross miss use of the legal system and legal rights. Wich ... sadly.. is the situation in quite a few sexual harassment cases. Espically one like this one where there is obviously no sexual conninatations.

I am going to get burned for saying this but why do we always have to walk on eggshells with everyone and everything? Why do we have to be so f*cking politically correct all the time? Why can't we speak our minds and the truth without reprucussions?
In my opinion.....
People should take the stairs instead of the elevator; it's better for you and your health. This is not saying that all heavy people are fat slobs. This also isn't saying that thin people are internally healthy. But it is saying that over 50% of the population is overweight and we as a country need to put down the Twinkies and take the stairs.

All they had to do was take the damn thing down. I can think of a lot worse things we did in school.

I saw someone get caught pissing on our resident director's door(inside), and even he didn't get in that much trouble.

I put a sign on our suggestion box that said "White Male Suggestions" and a sign over a nearby trashcan that said "Minority Suggestions."

And I didn't get in trouble for that. But one time I put up a poster stating that Communism was being introduced in America, and the principal said it was vandalism, and threatened to have me expelled.

ohhh!
His power was taken from him! Must get rid of free thinking individuals!

My parents were called to my school and told I was going to commit suicide because of my "unhealthy interest in death". Damn Anglicans. Ignore it and it will go away.

Yeah. Perhaps we should stop pretending like its about political correctness or whatever and call it for what it is: tightarsism!

Too much tightarsism in the world today.

People are too sensitive.

What happened to being honest instead of monitoring and censoring everything we say for fear we'll be labeled prejudice or hurt someones feelings?

The days when kids got cut from a team if they weren't good enough. Now no matter what they put you on the team because they don't want anyones feeling to be hurt. God forbid a child learns that they can't and won't get everything they want in life.

The days when you called a spade a spade. If you are overweight then yeah, you should put down the Big Mac, talk to your doctor, get on a diet and get your ass to the gym. I am not afraid to say it.

I can't STAND having to be so politically correct! Granted, I would never condone abusive or derogatory bahavior, like telling someone who is heavy that they are a fat slob. But I do believe in telling it like it is.

Short People got no reason
Short People got no reason
Short People got no reason
To live

They got little hands
Little eyes
They walk around
Tellin' great big lies
They got little noses
And tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoes
On their nasty little feet

Well, I don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
`Round here

Short People are just the same
As you and I
(A Fool Such As I)
All men are brothers
Until the day they die
(It's A Wonderful World)

Short People got nobody
Short People got nobody
Short People got nobody
To love

They got little baby legs
That stand so low
You got to pick 'em up
Just to say hello
They got little cars
That go beep, beep, beep
They got little voices
Goin' peep, peep, peep
They got grubby little fingers
And dirty little minds
They're gonna get you every time
Well, I don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
Don't want no Short People
'Round here

The University of Michigan has an interesting take on the issue

From their analysis I suspect this is not an example of out of control political correctness by a CYA move on the part of UNH bureaucrats in the face of a vague confusing and ill articulated harassment policy.
