Doctors/Monsters: Make Fatties Lose Weight Before You Treat Them

Doctors have always had a problem with telling fat patients that all their problems are a result of their fatty-fat-fatness. But now, rather than being a problem of shitty doctors who can't overcome their personal biases even in the face of science and research that completely contradicts their stupid shitty opinion… » 1/22/15 3:35pm 1/22/15 3:35pm

White Dude Tells Black People Not to Use N-Word. Must Be Tuesday.

Mike Wise is a white guy. Like most white guys, he is of the opinion that his opinion on everything matters all the time. Unlike most white guys, he is followed by 22,000 people on Twitter and is paid to write about sports for a living (OK, so that's not that uncommon). » 11/18/14 3:17pm 11/18/14 3:17pm

Is Being Thin Healthy? It Doesn't Matter.

You shouldn't accept yourself if you're obese. You shouldn't find that beautiful. The majority of this country doesn't have a gland problem, they're not big boned, their thyroid is not set to "small moon", they're Fat...I know it hurts but the simple fact is obesity is going to kill your ass. I hope the fact they…

Is Staying Thin Easy? It Doesn't Matter.

9 months ago, I weighed 167 and wore a 8/10 or size 29/30 jeans. 5 years earlier, back in 2008, I weighed 182 and I wore a 10/12 and a size 32 jeans... Now, I weigh 138, wear a size 2 or 26 in jeans. I am gobsmacked every single time I put on a pair of pants and that say "2" and they fit. The weight didn't come off…

I'm Fat, and I'll Eat Whatever I Damn Well Please

I was at the grocery store yesterday, trying to decide what to have for dinner. I'd eaten a big breakfast and skipped lunch, and I was a little bit hungry, but I couldn't for the life of me decide on something to eat for dinner. I decided to go home and wait until I actually wanted something. The only thing I knew I… » 5/30/14 4:13pm 5/30/14 4:13pm

It's OK to Be Happy About Abortions

The Pop Culture Version of Abortion tends to go something like this: A woman finds out she's pregnant; she agonizes over the decision to have an abortion; she sits in the clinic, watching the terribly sad people thinking about the terrible thing they're doing; audio fades during the painful and terrifying procedure;… » 5/22/14 5:42pm 5/22/14 5:42pm

The Myth of the Chubby Chaser

Some people prefer to fuck thin people. Some people prefer to fuck fat people. Many other people place no importance on the size of the people that they fuck. All of these are valid choices, but we only pretend that one is abnormal. Chubby chasing is bullshit. » 5/20/14 5:40pm 5/20/14 5:40pm

White Guys Are Ruining E-Cigarettes Like We Ruin Everything Else

As a white man, I'm well-aware of our propensity for destroying everything we touch. From rock and roll to just about every group of indigenous people on the planet, we love nothing more than stealing things, wrecking them, and then telling everyone that it was like that when we got here and we made it anyway, so fuck… » 5/19/14 4:46am 5/19/14 4:46am

Yes, Your Friend May Be a Rapist

My best friend, Richie (not his real name), is one of the sweetest guys you'll ever meet. He's kind, caring, and as insistent upon consent as anyone I know. I would drop everything to help him at a moment's notice and I've never known him to be anything but entirely honest. To my knowledge, Richie has never been… » 5/15/14 2:41pm 5/15/14 2:41pm

An Optimist At Heart: Depression Stories, Vol. 8

In the last few weeks, I've been interested in expanding things beyond compiling Depression Stories. There's a great deal of value in these stories, and I'm more than proud to tell them, but I don't want the good they're doing to end once there are no more stories in my inbox. » 5/07/14 1:10pm 5/07/14 1:10pm

Depression Stories - Anna

My depression started when I finally acknowledged that I was sexually abused as a child. After completely blocking it out for 6 years, when I turned 16 I realized the truth. The realization sent me spiraling fairly quickly. Sleeping is nearly impossible. I'll go almost an entire week on 13 hours of sleep. My nights… » 5/07/14 1:09pm 5/07/14 1:09pm

Depression Stories - Gail

When I was a kid, my big brother had to go to therapy once a month to help him with what I eventually learned was an eating disorder, as well as depression. A decade later, and he's my favorite person in the world. He's also the main reason why I've never seriously considered killing myself.

Depression Stories - Hayden

Please help me. I am 37 and have suffered with depression for years. A little over a year ago I had a major depressive episode that landed me in the ER, unable to form words. I couldn't remember how to do simple tasks.

After therapy and medication changes, I found out I was unexpectedly pregnant with our third child.… » 5/07/14 1:07pm 5/07/14 1:07pm

Depression Stories - Terry

I don't think people realize what it's like to have both depression and anxiety. Imagine feeling a nagging worry about your life: you don't have enough friends, you don't work out enough, you don't have enough to do outside of work, you hate your job, you feel like you need to escape your current situation into… » 5/07/14 1:06pm 5/07/14 1:06pm

Depression Stories - Morgan

My depression is my most frustrating flaw, and I can't seem to shake it. It sucks out all my motivation and enthusiasm for anything, so I feel like I'm in a constant state of boredom and apathy, even when I know I have something important to do, like my degree. I'm going to graduate soon and I have my dissertation and… » 5/07/14 1:05pm 5/07/14 1:05pm

I have reached a milestone. I am officially working as a full-time artist. This is a dream come true for me. I don't know if it will last forever, but for now, it is just really incredible.

Depression Stories - Dana

I am the life of the party. I make everyone laugh, people enjoy being around me. What they don't know is how I can't stand being around myself. It's odd for me to think of myself as depressed. I have only recently come to terms with how deeply sad I am. How I think nothing good will ever happen to me, how I am… » 5/07/14 1:03pm 5/07/14 1:03pm
