“They left out the massive gaps between her arms and upper thighs where the doll gets it's articulation and her giant eyed, tiny mouth cartoon facial proportions off that list. Those would be pretty bizarre on a real human body too!

I think this child's toy gets used as a scape-goat for a lot of bigger problems and mixed messages that the media and celebrity feeds young girls about what's 'pretty' and what bodies should look like.”

“Depends on what male body you're comparing it to. Most men that I know look nothing like G.I. JOE's proportions.”

“In 1991 doll creator, Cathy Meredig, the president of the High Self-Esteem Toys Corporation in Woodbury, Minn., a suburb of Minneapolis. (Woodbury, Walking Dead fans) created and produced the the "Happy to Be Me" doll, "who prides herself on being very different. The Happy to Be Me doll is a sort of politically correct Barbie, a doll with a social agenda. Her mission is to help young girls develop realistic body images and accept themselves as they are." according the NY Times....

And you've likely never heard of it. The dolls are rare to this day. So while there were plenty of Mom's that could have steered their daughters in the directions of this realistic role model, they didn't. And G.I.JOES don't have realistic male bodies either. When's the last time you saw Superman or Batman with a pot belly on the toy store shelves?”

“Proportion-wise, GI Joe is much more accurate to the male body than the Barbie is to the female body. The infographic is about proportion, not weight.”

“If this is what REAL Bikini bodies looks like, then why is that every day i come onto Huffington Post I see a plethora of garbage headlines, like the following?:

"Jennie Garth's Bikini Body Is Out Of This World (PHOTO)"

"Hayden Panettiere Rocks Bikini Amid Engagment Rumors (PHOTOS)"

"Halle Berry's Bikini Body Makes Us Jealous (PHOTOS)"

"PHOTOS: Winter's Hottest Celebrity Bikini Bodies"

"PHOTOS: 100 Best Bikini Bodies Of All Time"

"Michelle Rodriguez Rocks Daring Bikini"

"Megan Fox's Bikini Body"

"BIKINI BATTLE 2011"

"PHOTOS: Best Post-Baby Bikini Bods"

If a woman has had a baby, she has have the right to look like she's had a baby. Why are we so superficial? Beauty is within and these double standards should not be spoon fed to us by the likes of people that exploit celebrity women for their screen ready looks and then try to pretend they care about regular every day women's self esteem with exploitative articles like this one.

"...what does "bikini body" even mean? We happen to believe that if you're physically able to put on a bathing suit, you're bikini-ready."

Talk about your mixed messages!

If Huffpo really cared about women's feelings about themselves and self image, they would stop the tabloid junk featuring talented women in their private moments at the beach for pure public voyeurism and this site exploitation.”
McDonald's Nutritionist Cindy Goody: Our Food Is Healthy

McDonald's Nutritionist Cindy Goody: Our Food Is Healthy

Commented Mar 31, 2013 at 11:48:41 in Healthy Living

“More schilling for McDonald's disguised as journalism. In 1949, Orwell created 'Doublespeak' in his novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, and it is "primarily meant to make the truth sound more palatable. It may also refer to intentional ambiguity in language or to actual inversions of meaning (for example, naming a state of war "peace"). In such cases, doublespeak disguises the nature of the truth."

Fast Food is Healthy, we say! Sure it is. By having a few healthy choices on the menu, all our food is now healthy, because apple Slices in plastic wrap is the same as a large fries. There's apples somewhere in our deep fried apple pies! Potatoes are a vegetable!

"Our food is healthy" says Cindy Goody, not ""We're making nutrition more mainstream at McDonald's today," Goody told The Salt Lake Tribune on Tuesday." and the article above has no counterpoint, it just rolls out the PR.

If you click the midway link though, you'll find "Most chains seem stuck in a time warp, serving up the same old meals based on chicken nuggets, burgers, macaroni and cheese, fries, and soda," said Margo Wootan, CSPI nutrition policy director. "It's like the restaurant industry didn't get the memo that there's a childhood obesity crisis."

"Cindy Goody"... you can't make this stuff up.”

““I was with my first woman lover about a year and a half ago. To be honest, the real fear of coming out of the closet, not fear, but the real pressures of coming out of the closet had been if you had certain problems identifying yourself one way or the other.” - Michelle Shocked, 1990

"I live in fear," Shocked said, as reported by SFist, "that the world will be destroyed if gays are allowed to marry."- Michelle Shocked, 2013

Seems like she lives in a lot of fear.”
