Karen's response - read it here!
I take complaints very seriously here at Nerdbucket.com. I have two, count them - two contact forms in the left navigation toolbar. Some people think it's because I've made a huge mistake. But it's not. I read all comments carefully, and rarely do I feel the need to respond negatively. But once in a great while, somebody will try to tell me they know more than me about something I've spent a lot of time learning about, and those emails tend to need to get bitchslapped. So without further ado, my formal, public bitchslapping of Karen, a lovely (but very overweight) woman who takes out her fat aggressions on people far more intelligent than she.
This is from an email in early September, 2007
What the hell? I can only assume you chose the term "women" over "woman" because most people think you're more than one person, but don't you dare attack my "beliefs". I know what is and is not ideal - I've spent a lot of time doing research on the human body. Real field research, mind you, not just reading books written by guys who can't get a chick in bed. And yes, if you were dead, people would stop calling you fat. Calling somebody fat after they're dead is extremely rude.
And by the way, I don't think 2% is ideal. I'm not a moron. 2% is certainly good enough, but everybody should be shooting for 1%.
Your body fat calculator is just absurd.
I decided to experiment and made myself a 6ft2 women weighing 60lb with a 10 inch waist and 12 inch hips and your calculator puts this at 2% body fat which you delusionally believe is somehow ideal....in reality this would make me something close to a 100 year old rotting corpse, but what the hell does that matter? At least no-one could say I was fat *rolls eyes*.
I would say you need serious psychiatric help, but I'm sure you already know that.
My last psychiatrist said I was no longer benefitting from his service. I think that pretty much says how my mental state is today, thanks, Dr. Fatty McEatsalot.
I do not like these guidelines. I wouldn't say I have a fat phobia or anything, but let's face it - 12% of one's body being pure fat is just disgusting. And this whole six pack/biceps thing? Yeah, the guy wearing a $5,000 suit is going to let his woman get into a position to kick his ass. COME ON!
If you want to know what a healthy level of body fat for women see below.
10%-12% = essential body fat and below this level equals DANGER of DEATH.
12%-20% = athletic - this does NOT mean skinny it means lean, i.e. SIX PACK and BICEPS.
20%-30% health = healthy female with a healthy level of body fat.
30%-35% overfat = increased risk of health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, etc.
35%+ = significantly increased risk of health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, etc.
You might not like these guidelines because you are a fat phobic or whatever, but this is NORMAL for women and for men it will be about 8-10 points less because men are naturally more lean than women. If you don't like that, blame mother nature not the medical community.
What the hell? I just said I'm not a fucking fataphobe! And I'm well aware men have less body fat than women. That absolutely doesn't make it any less revolting to see fat women!
I feel it is a waste of my time, because you are clearly some pro-ana wierdo, but I sincerely hope that you one day recover and become sane again.
Wait... you think I'm "pro-ana"? Like, as in I'm pro-anorexic? Where THE FUCK did you get that second 'a'? Anorexic has only one 'a'! What, did you eat all the other vowels?
And how did you know I was all for anorexia? Are you psychic? Or was it the part where I said The people labeled "anorexic" or "bulimic" are ostracized for being so damn hot? Damn, you are so perceptive!
Does being fat interfere with your ability to type a coherent sentence? How does that affect your life in general? Not being a disgusting slob myself, I really and truly don't know what that's like, so please respond when you get a chance.
P.S. My husband is a professional body builders and fitness trainer and knows a hell of a lot more about what is healthy body fat wise than you got it. He recommend you get help too, you are disturbed.
