Hate or Validate?

Today we received a hate letter via email. At first we laughed it off as we usually do and didn’t give it another thought. But the more the words sat in our heads ruminating we realized not responding would mean we were part of a greater problem. Bullying. And it reminding us of Oprah’s words on her last show.

How true.
In the last year we’ve made a personal goal to work towards anti-bullying even attempting to work with bullies to understand their motives. You see, this is a societal problem. We are quick to blame the bully but they are in pain too or they wouldn’t find joy or humor in making someone feel worse than they do themselves. At the cost of another life, we could not just sit back. Sure, we could handle the violent words of the ridiculous email but what about the 13 year old boy who is ridiculed and doesn’t have any friends because he is overweight or the 15 year old lesbian who doesn’t feel part of a “community” or “group” and walks through the halls every day at school in hopes of finding just one person who feels the same way she feels? What about the the skinny girl who everyone thinks is beautiful and smart and has it all but inside she doesn’t feel as if she can ever live up to anyone’s expectations, including her own? What about the 17 year old gay teenager who stays in his room in front of his computer looking for a life or a world where someone will make him feel like he’s good enough? We’ve made it through those days…but they haven’t. This is for them…we are here if you need us. You aren’t alone.

So…here’s the first email:

NOBODY LIKES YOU FAT FUCKS
YOU GUYS ARE SERIOUSLY SO FUCKING STUPID AND LAME. PEOPLE GET EMBARASSED WHEN YOU TWO ARE AROUND. PETER YOUR A MIDLIFE CRISIS WITH YOUR UGLY ABERCROMBIE AND FITCH, AND ALEX..YOU HAIR??? YOU WORK AT A SALON??? OMG… AND YOUR BAGS UNDER YOUR EYES…YOU GUYS ARE SO WORTHLESS ITS EMBARSSING!!!! NOBODY INVITES YOU GUYS, YOU TWO UGLY FAT FUCKS SHOW UP…IM GOING TO START A PAGE THAT WILL SAY..THE FAT BOYS OF RAANT TO OUST YOU WANNA BE WASHED UP HAS BEENS.!!! NOBODY LIKES YOU TWO IN THE GAY SCENE AND NOBODY LIKES YOU IN THE STRAIGHT SCENE…STAY AWAY FROM EVERYONE..AND YOUR WEBPAGE…FUCKING STUPID!!!! YOU GUYS ARE UGLY AND FAT..YOU TWO ARE THE NEW TED AND IVAN FROM THE WORD…I CANT WAIT TO THROW SOMETHING AT YOU TWO TWINK ASS UGLY ASSHOLES NEXT TIME I SEE YOU OUT. STAY HOME!!!!! SERIOUSLY ALEX YOUR HAIR AND YOUR POOR OUTFITS??? PETER…YOUR NASTY ASS TEETH FROM ALL THE REDBULL??? GO TO A DENTIST, A STYLIST, USE BRONZER, HIT THE GYM, AND A THERAPIST…NOBODY LIKES YOU TWO UGLY FUCKS!!!!!!! GET THE HINT!!!

and this is the second…obviously from the same person:


my name isnt valid, just another person that cant stand your horrible. go to the gym ugly fucks commented on The boys of raannt YouTube Channel!!!

i dont know whats worse…you guys being ugly and fat or just going through a midlife crisis!!!
people hate you two in indpls, you guys are a joke, embarassing, and people shun away from you two. get a new job. you two are pathetic pieces of garbage!!!
alex, you hair is ugly, you have horrible bags under your eyes..and you FAT!! peter, your just a fat midlife crisis hairy piece of garbage with a horrible. go spend your time at the gym you two lame ass losers. you guys are a joke!!!!

Hmmmm…well, you can wait and hear our response personally tomorrow on our YouTube video HATE at our YouTube Channel

Our original thought was to respond humorously, as we always do, making tee-shirts stating MIDLIFE CRISIS and FATASS. But this is much too serious. How serious? It is illegal. If you question this check out your state’s code on harassment and intimidation.

But it is much more serious to us because of the effect it could have on someone who can’t take anymore and, as Oprah says, is simply looking for validation.

For anyone that feels that way…we love you, we’re here for you and you’re not alone. Our commitment is to never stop being ourselves until the hatred stops. We’re not going anywhere!

Be fearless…Be your own unexpected luxury!

If anyone is looking for help or just needs someone to listen to them please email us at raannt@gmail.com.

Britney vs. Lindsey and the PREMIER of the I Wanna Go Video!!!

Ahhhhh…Britney Spears and Lindsey Lohan!!! Epic idols of their own breeding! Both have had their difficulties in the last few years and both had the chance for great stardom. In the end, where will these two young women land and which one will ultimately land on top?

Our bet is DEFINITELY on Britney as witnessed by her recent kickoff to her Femme Fatale World Tour and her balancing act between motherhood and magnificence! While, may we add, Lindsey fails her probation for the quatrillionth time as the worst act on house arrest and enters, yet again, the courtroom tomorrow! If Lindsey were paid for her courtroom residuals, she’d still be loaded right now! Oh…she probably is!
If it is any questions whether or not Britney has risen above her past angst, watch the premier of her new video I Wanna Go below and you decide!

Yep! It’s Brit all the way!!! Oh and Lindsey…We hear Intervention is having a casting call! Good luck honey!

Indiana Police Search for Missing College Student Lauren Spierer
Published June 06, 2011

Authorities in Indiana are searching for a missing college student who disappeared early Friday after a night out with friends.

Police say 20-year-old Lauren Spierer, a student at Indiana University, was last seen about three blocks from her apartment in Bloomington at around 4:15 a.m. Friday, June 3, 2011.

Witnesses reportedly told investigators that the young woman was walking barefoot to her apartment. Video footage does not show her entering the apartment, according to the Indiana Daily Student.

Spierer, a 2009 graduate of Edgemont High School in Scarsdale, N.Y., had just completed her sophomore year at Indiana University. She is reportedly studying fashion merchandising and is a University Division scholar.

Spierer’s parents flew from their home in Westchester County, N.Y., to Bloomington on Saturday to assist in the search for their daughter.
“It’s every parent’s worst nightmare,” her father, Robbie Spierer, told the Journal News. “And it’s worse than what you can imagine.”

Spierer is 4 feet, 11 inches tall with blond hair and blue eyes. She was last wearing a white tank top with a light-colored shirt over it and black pants.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts it being urged to call the Bloomington Police Department at 812-339-4477.

Oprah Winfrey…The American Dream!

Today Oprah Winfrey will bow farewell for her final time…maybe! And in doing so what she will be remembered for most, next to her constant changes in weight or her Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in The Color Purple, are her Favorite Things shows. In honor of Oprah, who we adore and respect partly because she continues to work endless hours and dispense wisdom while sporting a pair of hard earned Louboutins, we decided we would display a few of our favorite Oprah moments. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. And as we shed a few tears today as she closes her show, it is with fondness that we are reminded that behind all of the glamour the glitz, the Louboutins and the awards…Oprah is the definition of The American Dream! We’ll miss you girl!
