"I have a dear friend who had gastric bypass surgery a couple years ago. And, like most gastric bypass patients, eventually gained back the weight because SURPRISE! it’s hard to make fat people thin, just as it’s hard to make thin people fat. And she said this to me when I called her on her diet talk. “I just know I can lose the weight again. I have to try harder.”

"How the fuck do you “try harder” than surgically mutilating your body? What’s “trying harder” than that? Don’t answer, I don’t want to know."

"So, let’s count the sexist tropes, shall we?

"1. Women are over-emotional. They’re so emotional that you can’t understand them, and need subtitles.

"2. Mothers and daughters can’t bear the thought of being separated, and need to Skype daily lest the grief of separation be too much.

"3. Women have no sense of direction and will get lost with 4.2 or 15 miles of their home. So they need a phone with GPS. They also are so obsessed by being separated from their mothers that they will measure the distance in tenths of a mile.

"4. Emotional women should be fled from, seeing how fast the salesguy runs to the back."

Do I Really Have to Say This Again

"Ok, once more with feeling, pointing out bullshit behaviors under the umbrella of the word “Creep” is not demonizing male sexuality. It is pointing out bad behavior in a very inexact way.

"I’ve said it before, I think that we should do away with the word “creep” in favor of more specific terms, like, “You haven’t looked up from my tits once since I met you,” “Your opener was ‘Nice rack!’” or “You used (any one of dozens of “pick-up lines” suggested by lad mags like Maxim and Stuff, which continue to convince me that those magazines are written by a bunch of dudes who can’t get laid and want to make sure no one else does either).”

"Seriously, if you view children as a “consequence” or a punishment for having sex, don’t have any. Period. I’m serious. The world will be a better place without your fucked up DNA propagating further. I promise."

Today's new one! Dear "Pretty" People, We're On to you!

"'Beautiful on the inside' is what people who think they’re prettier than you say when they don’t think you’re pretty.

"It’s code for 'fat/ugly/gross, but you have a great personality.'"



It's Like They're Trying to Explode My Brain

"Ok, look, everybody do me two favors from now on out:
A. Do not try to tell me that people who are anti-contraception and anti-abortion care about anything more than punishing dirty whores.
B. Do not tell me that I should be more worried about “real” issues instead of worrying about reproductive freedom, equal pay and queer rights.
Oh, and a bonus, don’t assume that because I present female that my job is anything other than necessary for my survival and that of my family."

The Value of Women's Work

"What the hell is up with these assholes who don’t seem to understand that women work for the same reasons men work: to make money to support themselves and their families.

"So, Scott Walker repealed Wisconsin’s Equal Pay law this past week, and the incredibly charming Republican State Senator Glenn Grothman said, when interviewed by Michelle Goldberg at the Daily Beast, “You could argue that money is more important for men. I think a guy in their first job, maybe because they expect to be a breadwinner someday, may be a little more money-conscious. To attribute everything to a so-called bias in the workplace is just not true.”

"Really?"

A few HAES Tips!
http://www.polimicks.com/?p=569

"Ok, now, on to tips I’d like to talk about that both did and didn’t get mentioned in the panel. And most of these relate to Exercise Doesn’t Have to Suck. Pick something you like doing because you will be more likely to keep doing it, as opposed to something you hate. Pick something that is fun and within your price range. Things you may be able to do cheaply include walking, dancing around the house in your underwear, using neighborhood pools for swimming and community water aerobics classes, yoga from online instructional videos… I also have several dance games for the Wii, and have been known to dance for well over an hour at a time. Maida walked a marathon."

Screw the Tone Argument

“Oh, I know. Trust me That’s one of the reasons it pisses me off so much. It’s pretending there is ever any way, shape or form in which they WOULD have listened. Having been chided for both being “too passionate/angry” and “not passionate/angry enough” I’ve decided to err on the side of “Fuck you.”

Review: Orgasm Inc.
Mister Yuck

"Part of the problem comes from the way we view women’s sexuality. Very few women orgasm from nothing but penile-vaginal intercourse. Most women require at least a little clitoral stimulation in order to achieve orgasm. This is actually fairly well documented in the literature. The problem comes with media that shows women that the norm should be orgasm with no stimulation other than penetration. So women who can orgasm with a vibrator or manual stimulation of the clitoris wind up feeling substandard or dysfunctional. Very few women appear to be actually anorgasmic, less than 10%. Part of the problem comes from a society that teaches women nothing of their own sexual geography, or stimulus."

Why You Won't Hear Me Bagging on Toddlers and Tiaras

"The main reason that I can’t be amused by Toddlers and Tiaras, is that while I agree that the majority of the families they show are train wrecks (or rather are edited to look as train wrecky as possible), all I see are mothers desperate for their little girls to do better than they did, reach further, go higher. Whether they consciously know it or not. Some of those women may well be living vicariously through those little girls, but part and parcel of that is wanting their little girls to succeed where they didn’t or couldn’t. To me there is nothing funny about people doing everything they possibly can to see their children reach a better life. If the methods are flawed as hell, that’s because they’re working with the tools they know."
