I’m so sick and tired of people promoting fat acceptance. “Society” tells you you’re never going to be good enough. But being overweight (and this goes for people with eating disorders who are underweight as well) is a HEALTH PROBLEM.You’re not born fat-you choose to be overweight. Exercise and eat healthier- NOT because “Society” thinks you’re ugly- but because you will live a longer, healthier life!

Dear Troll:

Before spouting your “everyone knows”, no evidence, not science, not helpful advice in blog spaces where your input was neither asked for nor welcomed, I very strongly suggest that you actually read the material presented in said blog.

In case your attention span is so painfully short that you can’t possibly make it through more than a single entry, or that your research skills are akin to the average 5 year old’s - here are a few select bits of reading that you really should try to make it through, because - well, not only are you inapprorpriate, you’re wrong.

http://www.nutritionj.com/content/10/1/9  - “Randomized controlled clinical trials indicate that a HAES approach is associated with statistically and clinically relevant improvements in physiological measures (e.g., blood pressure, blood lipids), health behaviors (e.g., eating and activity habits, dietary quality), and psychosocial outcomes (such as self-esteem and body image), and that HAES achieves these health outcomes more successfully than weight loss treatment and without the contraindications associated with a weight focus.”

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/02/health/study-suggests-lower-death-risk-for-the-overweight.html?hp&_r=1& - “The report on nearly three million people found that those whose B.M.I. ranked them as overweight had less risk of dying than people of normal weight. And while obese people had a greater mortality risk over all, those at the lowest obesity level (B.M.I. of 30 to 34.9) were not more likely to die than normal-weight people.”

http://healthland.time.com/2012/09/05/can-you-be-fat-and-fit-or-thin-and-unhealthy/ - “In a new study by U.S. and European researchers, published [PDF] in the European Heart Journal, overweight and obese people were found to be at no greater risk of developing or dying from heart disease or cancer, compared with normal weight people, as long as they were metabolically fit despite their excess weight.”

Yours with actual thought,

Community has never prided itself on romance - or on being one genre for more than one episode at a time - but the constant wasted opportunities and neglect for Jeff Winger and Annie Edison have tested those shippers’ last nerve. Given that Community would much rather keep teasing and reviving the much less popular Jeff/Britta pairing - complete with a half-hearted wedding proposal leading up to the possible series finale - it is quite alienating and baffling to a rather vocal part of an already small audience.

Community is a show that could have benefited quite a lot from a Jeff/Annie relationship, both creatively and commercially. Yet Dan Harmon’s missteps and downright cowardice on this front are the direct opposite of what Michael Schur and his writers keep accomplishing a half-hour later. It’s no wonder that Parks and Recreation is up to seven seasons and may get to craft a real ending in advance, while Community crosses its fingers again for its long, satirically promised sixth season - a.k.a. another chance to disappoint all its shippers.

bullFUCKINGshit. Jeff/Britta 4EVA…Jeff/Annie NEVA. (Jeff/Annie makes me throw up in my mouth a little).

hmm, between the snow and watching “Broad City” for the first time last night, I think I might be done with New York.

not a dig against “Broad City,” mind you…but it just reminded me that what looks madcap and bohemian when you’re in your twenties is SO OVER when you reach 40.

and the…

YES. Broad City hooked me because Amy Poehler was a producer, but she has nothing to do with the “comedy.” It’s why I can’t stand HBO’s Girls…20-somethings making all the mistakes I made…it’s just not funny and I don’t want to relive that shit.

Feminist = Equality. Duh.

BUT…just because another woman says OH HAI YES ALL THE SEXIST THINGS ARE OK!!! I’M A WOMAN AND IF I LIKE IT, IT MUST NOT BE SEXIST!!!! LOL!!!1! …yeah, it’s still sexist.

You don’t speak for me.

I mean, obviously, I don’t speak for you either. BUT YOU DON’T SPEAK FOR ME AND YOU SURE AS FUCK DON’T SPEAK FOR ANY OTHER FEMINIST OUT THERE.
