YOU:
You are totally misrepresenting what I posted. I praised Sarah Paulson as being "very effective" and later as being "brilliant".

Me:
I HAVE SAID NOTHING ABOUT YOUR PRAISE FOR PAULSON; I THINK SHE'S GREAT, TOO.

YOU:
I was using the word slovenly to describe her actions, the way she chomped food to irritate her co-worker, her attitude about her job, the way she gossiped about her superiors, her desire to destroy reputations, and for what purpose. I initially said nothing about her physical appearance

OXFORD DICTIONARY:
adjective: slovenly

(especially of a person or their appearance) messy and dirty.
"he was upbraided for his slovenly appearance"

(especially of a person or action) careless; excessively casual.
"slovenly speech"

ME:
THE PRINCIPAL DEFINITION OF "SLOVENLY" REFERS TO A PERSON'S PHYSICAL APPEARANCE; WHAT DOES "SLOVENLY HAVE TO WITH HER ATTITUDE ABOUT HER JOB, HER GOSSIPPING WAYS OR HER DESIRE TO DESTROY REPUTATIONS? UNLESS YOU MEANT SHE WAS BEING "CARELESS OR EXCFESSIVELY CASUAL"? BUT I DON'T THINK SO.

YOU:
Tripp actually once described herself as fat, I said overweight.

ME;
I TOOK NO ISSUE WITH YOUR USING THE WORD "FAT", REGARDLESS OF WHAT TRIPP MIGHT HAVE SAID ABOUT HERSELF. "FAT" IS A NEUTRAL DESCRIPTOR, NOT A PEJORATIVE WORD LIKE "SLOVENLY".
