A Note of Support from Noel Spencer

2 Mar

After a long, long time, yesterday, I saw Noel for the first time.  It was a little tough, but in the end, it was great to see him again.  We had the best talk, and resolved a bit.  Closure.  It’s good.

One thing we spoke about was this blog and how old friends from the feederism world are angry about my appearance on Judith Angel’s The Angel Hour.  Noel offered to show support for me.  He just posted a statement on his blog linkstobeauty.tumblr.com, and I’ve added it below.

I’m in Jamaica now, and I’m taking a few days off!  See ya on the flip side…

NOEL’S STATEMENT

Much has been said about my relationship with Jesse Marie Scott.  Let me be clear: I hold no ill will or resentment toward Jesse.  I hear many of you in the feederism community are sending angry emails and posting vindictive comments on her blog.  I’m asking you publicly to cease these actions immediately.

Judith Angel manipulated the video footage of Jesse for her show “The Fed, The Dead,” and what you saw is not what Jesse intended the world to see.  This television show hurt Jesse and me in more ways than you can imagine, and we both wish to move on.

People often write and ask about my current relationship.  I no longer speak about my personal life in public. I respect privacy of others, and I ask people to respect my privacy, too.

Please, respect Jesse.  She is working hard to move on with her life after the slander Judith

With Warmth,

Happy 2011!

1 Jan

Happy New Year, one and all. I feel like the past year was a blur in many ways. For over a whole year, I haven’t had a home. The first twelve months were at Brookstone Medical as I worked to lose several hundred pounds, and the last three months I’ve been in Toledo, Ohio, staying with my sister, who also is going through major life changes.

Most people I meet talk about how they hope 2011 will be better than 2010. It’s interesting when people collectively feel pain. The past two years or so have been a collective struggle – economically, psychologically and emotionally. When times like these occur, I truly believe they are meant to bring us together. Typically, people experience pain as individuals, but these great collective struggles exist so we can have empathy for each other. If we see others’ perspectives, we treat each other better.

I’m not saying I wish there were more economic crises, wars or natural disasters, but you have to admit, when they happen, we humans band together. It doesn’t matter if you’re big, small, brown, or white – we take care of each other.

New Year’s resolutions have always felt like a bit of a joke to me, but I’m resolving to make one and take it seriously this year. In 2010, I focused on myself, but in 2011, I’m going to focus on you. Whoever you are. If you’re reading this, I’m focusing on you. I want to help you, if I can. I want to help understand your perspective better, and I want to help you realize if you are happy – truly happy – with the way you live your life, you shouldn’t worry about what anyone else thinks of you. It’s true. They can’t do you any harm.

Be safe, and Happy 2011!
