It's the end of the year, which means endless end-of-the-year lists, especially for TV shows. And I didn't watch TV this year. Seriously. I cut the cable cord in 2008. Yes, I am superior to you, thanks for asking.

Most of us don't decide to become a parent because of a study. Thoughtful adults, we appreciate that having a child is a major step, one of the greatest risks we take (I'm factoring out playing football and texting while driving).
I love that Louis CK script because he has opened up a space for dialogue about the real problem. It's not that some women are fat, it's that fat women carry a stigmatized identity, and association will stigmatize the fat woman's partner too.
