I have a problem with how some fat people dress – Dominica News Online

Published

Bella,

Before I get thrown under the bus by readers let me say that I don’t have a problem with fat people. The problem I have is with the way some of them dress.

Bella, yesterday, I was somewhere in town and if I wasn’t sure that there was no such observance, I would say it was the Fat Disgraceful People Day.

Heavy women with short shorts under their butts and the darkness between their thigh are so prevalent.

After seeing one of them struggle to enter a van, a few blocks down I saw another woman…she must have been 300 pounds. The lady was wearing a jeans and all her behind expose. Poor jeans couldn’t even sit well on her body.

Bella, alas. I’m not a hater. Thick women are beautifully made but they must know and be told how to dress.

I sometimes wonder whether nobody at their home sees them and can point things out or even they themselves look in the mirror.

I know a lot of plump women in Dominica who dress well. Cover up and look sexy. But some fat women dress disgracefully.

I never liked fat and the kind of anger I am beginning to feel towards them, I am beginning to think maybe it is me with the mental issue.

Do you think me not liking the fat, skimpily dressed image makes me a hater? Or is it okay to feel that way?

Let me add that these huge women are always seen stuffing their face and that drives me crazy too.

Fat Hater.

Hello Fat Hater,

I have seen plus size women dress in ways that are not becoming.

I have seen slim women do the same thing. It’s really about how people feel in what they wear.

But losing sleep over what another person wears and how they look, is a bit extreme.

Just ensure that whenever you wear compliments your size and shape because really, however a person decides to dress up or dress down has everything to do with them and not you.

One of the participants in the Community Tourism Enhancement Competition (CTEC), Shirley Alexander, is planning to use the competition to transform the communities of Giraudel and Eggleston.

The competition was recently launched at the Dominica Public Service Union (DPSU) Building.

She said her group will focus on the transformation of the Giraudel/Eggleston Flower Show site.

“We have started and we will continue and we intend to use the competition to transform our communities even more, our people, our landscape, everything that we have to offer,” Alexander said.

She said the competition will also be used to bring back some past activities with some additions.

“We will focus a lot on our flower show site, 2.6 acres, so you should look forward to exciting activities there in March and April when the competition will be on,” she said.

Alexander believes that the competition is creating more opportunities for community groups.

“We aim to have a more enhanced environment and more sustainable lifestyles. Of course, we are noted for our abundance of flowers and our people so we will be focusing on those. Our talents, our skills, whatever we have to offer,” she said.

She also mentioned that the community had an improved National Employment Programme (NEP) which started in September 2019.

“We have been pressing forward with the NEP, the Ministry of Tourism and others,” Alexander stated.

Dominican confirmed as Antiguan commissioner of Police

Dominica’s Atlee Patrick Rodney has been confirmed as Police Commissioner of the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda.

Rodney is originally from the northern village of Savanne Paille which is located near Calibishie.

The announcement came Wednesday 19th February, during a Senior Administrative Meeting at Police Headquarters.

Commissioner Rodney met with members of the Police Service Commission (PSC) on Tuesday, where he was served with his letter of appointment, effective November 25th 2019.

Rodney, who has 38 years’ service within the organization acted in the position for a little more than 22 months before his confirmation.

His opportunity arose after the dismissal of the Commissioner of Police Wendel Robinson.

Robinson, who was born in St Vincent and the Grenadines, was on suspension since April 15th, 2018, when the Police Service Commission in Antigua began an internal investigation into complaints of sexual misconduct by male colleagues under the commissioner’s care.

The investigation later led to charges being brought against him and Rodney has been acting in the Police commissioner role ever since.

The newly appointed commissioner used the opportunity to encourage the men and women under his command to remain committed and united in their efforts to make Antigua and Barbuda a safer nation.
