  • Shaunta Grimes wrote a new blog post: Badminton’s top female players forced into skirts   3 years, 3 months ago · View

    Thumbnail On May 4, the Badminton World Federation released new clothing regulations that require all female athletes competing in the highest levels of the sport to wear skirts. Players can still wear shorts or leggings or whatever they like, I guess, as long as the female players wear skirts over them.

    “Neither are we asking women to play [...]

    Thumbnail Let me tell you a story about a cheese sandwich. When I was ten, my family took a long summer trip in a big orange van first to Texas to visit my dad’s mom and then through Mexico and back to California. In Texas, we (at that time there were seven kids in our family) [...]

  • Shaunta Grimes wrote a new blog post: An Open Letter to Those Who Judge the Morality of Health   3 years, 4 months ago · View

    Arwyn from Raising My Boychick has a post up now about whether or not people have a moral obligation to strive for health. It got me thinking. I am the child and sister of addicts and the only really fat person in my large family.  I’ve found myself sometimes in the strange situation of being talked [...]

  • Shaunta Grimes wrote a new blog post: Jane Curtin Tells Oprah About Early Misogyny on SNL   3 years, 4 months ago · View

    Oprah had some past Saturday Night Live cast members on yesterday. Jane Curtin and Chevy Chase were among the guests. When Chase started to say that there were some problems for women writers in the first year of the show because they mostly wrote about “women’s issues,” Jane Curtin schooled him. Schooled him. Watch here. John Belushi, it [...]

    Victoria, the problem is with assuming that only fat people are sedentary or only fat people eat junk food. The CDC (in the US) says that US weights have been stable for the last 20 years. There is no dramatic increase in weight here. I don’t know whether people are more unhealthy or less unhealthy [...]

    The author (and you?) assumes that all fat parents feed their children crap all the time. Did you ever see non-fat or less-fat people buying junk food? The problem is not that people shouldn’t be encouraged to feed their children balanced diets, it’s that the message is targeted to fat people when really everyone would [...]

    I think that the biggest problem is that as a society we assume that being fat is a problem. We assume it so hard that it actually can end up taking a lot of concentrated effort to let go of the assumption. If your partner could turn her thinking about her exercise around to look [...]

    I messed up my comments! Kaye, your post has made me think all day and I’m going to write about it I think soon.

    This is a really good point, Rachel. It’s made me think all day. I think I’m going to have to write more about it.

    Also, a bike with a scale? That’s scandalous. I’d be so mad!

    Never mind that you might be able to pick up the hot dogs at the corner store while trying to find the food his clients eats might require multiple buses or money for a cab or finding someone willing to drive you.

    Thank you so much for your understanding. It means a lot to me. My siblings and I are all grown and already have whatever damage we’re going to have. But it’s really sad to me that I have never, in 18 years, allowed my daughters or my son to spend any time alone with my [...]

    The problem with the article in this respect is that it assumes that because fat kids look like their parents, that all of them are unhealthy. It assumes that thin is the only way to be healthy. It also assumes that if you and your children as slender, than you are healthy, which is not [...]

    I don’t even know you, and I agree. You are merely awesome.
