Sick since yesterday, hadn’t eaten anything since last night besides sips of Gatorade.  But I was getting dizzy so I just threw caution to the wind, had a half a cup of peppermint tea, and a half a bowl of cream of wheat.  

NIRVANA!

So the key to eating food that’s good for you, is starvation.  Knit that on a sampler.

"…weight is always the first thing that somebody sees. Somebody will see you after a few years, and their first comment is about the weight you’ve put on. Maybe I’ve become a better person these last few years. Maybe I’ve been a great friend to someone. Maybe I’ve read a lot of books and become smarter. Maybe the reason I’ve put on weight is that I’ve got a great job that can be stressful and doesn’t leave me time to go to the gym.""

"I’ve been overweight all my life. But I broke up with my boyfriend last year, and things weren’t going well, so it got worse and worse. I’d try to diet, but I’d eat something that I wasn’t supposed to. I’d try to go to the gym, but I’d leave early. I was trying to lose weight because I felt like I needed to be a different person. But time has passed now, and I think I’m approaching weight loss with a much more positive attitude. I know that I can be happy without losing weight. Sure, I wish I could wear prettier clothes. I wish I could take a photograph without my face looking like a football. But I know that I’m not my weight. And it’s hard to come to that conclusion. You really have to battle to separate your self-image from your weight. Because weight is always the first thing that somebody sees. Somebody will see you after a few years, and their first comment is about the weight you’ve put on. Maybe I’ve become a better person these last few years. Maybe I’ve been a great friend to someone. Maybe I’ve read a lot of books and become smarter. Maybe the reason I’ve put on weight is that I’ve got a great job that can be stressful and doesn’t leave me time to go to the gym."

Gotta love all the men on twitter making fun of the WNBA.  It’s not a ‘real’ league.  Yeah, not like the NFL or the MLB or the NBA, with all the wife beaters, drunk drivers, steroid users, child abusers, um, gee, what else?   Oh, rapists!  Can’t forget the rapists :)

So yeah, sorry ladies, your accomplishments mean nothing if you don’t have a penis and a motley, sickening, collection of felonious offenders, playing your game.  Better luck next year!

Interesting piece, and yes of course we live in a rape culture.  Most women who’ve walked outside, already know that.  It’s like telling us that water is wet.  But it should be noted if you click through, it says this picture they’re using to shoot this article all over the world, came from Shutterstock.  So basically the three ‘dudes’ that you’re pasting here as the “Face of Over Privileged White Boy College Date Rape,’ are just models, and have absolutely nothing at all to do with the horrible quotes in this article, that came from OTHER men.
Kind of a shitty thing to do.  
Especially given it would have been super easy, to A) use a picture of any man actually quoted in the article, B) use a picture of an actual rapist, or C) if for some inexplicable reason you still felt the need to screw these three guys over for no reason, you could have at least included the photo the way I did here below, which clearly SHOWS that they’re just models and therefore does NOT imply that they’re pretty boy sexual predators that women of all ages, should avoid at all costs.
Stay classy, Salon.
