Sorry (not sorry) but when you're a performer of any kind, your appearance is your biggest asset. And if your producers don't like the way you look, they have every right to tell you to change, or to fire your ass. That's the way it works. Don't like it? Then find a different job.

If I am going to sit and watch them play for a few hours they should at least give me some attractive humans to look at.

Exactly.

This is the reason why popular fashion shows are filled with people who are good-looking and can confidently strut down the catwalk.

Fats are NOT attractive by default as they are non-human in the first place. They should be showcased in the zoo for entertainment.

So now the world is deprived of beautiful music because we are not allowed to state the obvious or hurt anyone's feelings. Appearance is a huge part of any performance. Everybody knows that even if they do not want to admit it. No one wants to watch an orchestra dressed in filthy singlets and sweat pants. For the same reason they have a formal dress code, they players should not be fat. Now all the musicians in the orchestra are out of a job because a pair of lardbarge singers could not put down the pies. Once again, fat affects others.

I am in agreement with the Management's decision here. I would rather allow my organization be shut down than to allow even one or two blubber slugs into it

i got a couple angry PMs. to clarify, i totally agree with this move on the orchestra's part. fatties have no play in performance art of any kind.

I'm so sick of fats using people with eating disorders to justify their fatness, as the ham beast did at the end of the article. One minute they are using eating disorder to protect their fat agenda, then they use it to criticize when non-fat men don't want them, they criticize the slim woman as being abnormal and having an eating disorder.

Especially given that it's not very common. I think it's around one to four percent of women and a much smaller number of men. Depending on how you define it, the chances of a random person being deaf is greater than the chances of a random person having suffered from an eating disorder.

  1. They wanted their vocalists, who are center stage, to look elegant. It's an orchestra after all.

  2. The fat ones were obviously wearing clothes too small, and looked trashy and unprofessional.

  3. Cue the cows having conniptions.

That (now resigned) director is a fucking hero.
