    Another week, another outburst from the Feminist community.



    Nicole Arbour, a comedian from Ontario, has been under fire for her "fat-shaming" YouTube video. She since lost her job. (http://zap2it.com/2015/09/dear-fat-p...omedian-fired/ )












    Charlotte Proudman, a British lawyer, was in the news after receiving a "misogynistic" and "sexist" message from Alexander Carter-Silk, a senior barrister, via LinkedIN. Carter-Silk is still under scrutiny and could lose his job or, at the very least, has had his career dented.








    Both these cases were completely blown out of proportion.

    In the situation of Nicole Arbour, it is plain to see she's using satire and her female charm to poke fun of those larger than life. None of it was meant to offend, but it seems a lot of people have no backbone.

    At a glance, the Proudman saga is a private conversation turned nation outrage. Sure Carter-Silk's comments on Proudman's profile were highly unprofessional; however was there really any need to include his name in the Tweets??

    But let's look as this critically.

    Can you tell what major difference lies between Nicole Arbour and Charlotte Proudman, besides their profession?

    Their looks.

    Nicole Arbour is a woman one might call 'Aggressively Beautiful'. She's a very attractive woman and she actively shows it. If you take a minute to watch her video 'Dear fat people', you'll notice it.

    Charlotte Proudman on the other hand is what we call 'Inconspiciously Beautiful'. She is definitely above average, but she doesn't express it as much as Arbour... in other words she's more 'conservative'.

    However Proudman is a different version of 'Inconspicious Beauty', and I hope this video can show you why.

    Funnily enough I was at a club last night and I saw this happen more times than I have fingers on my hands - especially the up-own eye movement.

    Why do you think it doesn't occur in us men that much?

    Proudman is definitely not beautiful, she's actually ugly in my view. Arbour would be easier to judge if her boobs weren't so in your face.

    I think Arbour was right in what she said, we've coddled fat people for too long and they shouldn't think it's okay to be obese.

    Proudman is clearly just a radical feminism who would probably try and find a way to argue that the way her toilet flushes is sexist.

    No, YouTube pulled it after receiving a high number of complaints. It is automatic. They reinstated it when the matter was looked into.
