    Awesome. I signed up for Mr. Batali’s newsletter ages ago because I love his cooking. Now I can love his politics too! Additionally, I think “you seem successful and delightful” is going to be my new comeback to trolls.

  • Jen commented on the blog post Tyrese, a great friend in fatphobia   1 year, 5 months ago · View

    I totally agree with Sarah’s comment above; in today’s media “health” = perpetuation of ridiculous beauty standards. All talk of health centers around weight, and the overwhelming majority of that talk is aimed at women. Tyrese could easily have used his celebrity platform to espouse a healthy lifestyle, without launching a fat-shaming tirade that really [...]

But an aide in his campaign said two interesting things. The first was that he thought they would have done better had [...]

    The chart gives a nice state by state breakdown. As a resident of Vermont (and very happy to see us at the bottom of that list), it’s easy to feel disconnected from the fierce anti-choice issues that plague other states. I try not to take for granted the fact that I live in a very socially liberal place.
