I'm sure ya'll probably saw the video of the response from the news anchor who felt she was bullied in an e-mail from a viewer about her weight. Bullying is in the news a lot lately, so... Have you ever felt bullied because of your weight? How did you handle it?

I have never been bullied but I just can't believe how mean people can be to others. I was raised that if you don't have anything nice to say then just don't say anything at all.

I was never bullied about weight....height, quietness, clothes, etc yes...but never weight. I did get reported to the counselor in high school though because someone thought I was anorexic or bulimic. I was also raised that if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all.

Luckily, I've never been bullied for that. I will say....it really makes me mad when people make fat jokes about other people or say rude remarks!

So I have to admit I hadn't seen the news yet, so had to google it.

I'd like for that guy to tell me since when you have to be thin to be a good role model?? Does he know that anorexia and bulimia are also major issues? I have to agree with her about the fact he knows nothing about her. Maybe she does eat well and exercises...he doesn't know.

That's just my 2 cents, and I'm not going to fight with anyone that might not agree. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

In regards to that specific case, I was really impressed that she chose to publicly reply to him. I think if it were me I wouldn't have had the confidence to be so public about it.

I wasn't exactly "bullied" for my weight in high school but I was extremely tall and thin, so of course there was somebody who started rumors about me being bulemic. I wasn't overweight, but I still hated the shape of my body because of the way girls would treat me. It was always other girls/women who made me feel this way. Why are women so cruel to eachother, I've often wondered.
