“this would fall into the category: good intentions are not enough. a clothing company can identify who they want their customers to be. you can disagree with that identification, but unless you're h&m and are propagating slave labor in inhuman conditions in bangladesh, you don't really have a case here. lots of clothes are made for people who are skinny and lots of clothes are made for people who aren't skinny. unfortunately, this guy takes on a crusade that doesn't speak to the other side of the CEO's argument. by handing out A&F clothes to homeless people isn't really disproving the CEO's stance that he doesn't make clothes for people who are "fat." in his, hopefully, good intention he's actually objectified the homeless to being the lowest common denominator. read: if you're going to make clothes for the high society, watch me give those clothes to the worst people on earth. a less ego-driven method might work better next time.”
“I love that word, incredible. Much like the bible, it means different things to different people.
1. so extraordinary as to seem impossible:
2. not credible; hard to believe; unbelievable:
farfetched, astonishing, preposterous.”

“yeah............ why should Kashmiris want to be part of a secular democratic India slated to become top 5 economies in the world. They should instead be part of failed state Pakistan or become independant country so they can be taken over by Talibans and become a failed state. Look at the future for young Kashmiris ... no school , no education who needs that when you can serve 'Allah ' by getting recruited by Lets, Talibans, Mujahaddeens to become suicide bombers .”

“Yes, Yes The Indian occupation is a crime where they provide Support, Food & Shelter to the people of Kashmir and also give them voting power in a Democratic country.
Where Pakistan will provide the people with Halal Kebabs and continuous state of terror.”

INCORRECT. The American Cancer Society trumps Brendan.
"The increasingly consumed isoflavone genistein a plant estrogen linked to the health benefits of soy has been shown in a series of University of Illinois studies to stimulate the growth of estrogen-dependent human breast-cancer cells implanted into laboratory mice.
The findings of three studies, funded by the National Institutes of Health, are detailed in the Journal of Nutrition (November), Carcinogenesis (October) and Cancer Research (July).
The results demonstrate that genistein in various forms stimulates tumor growth. They also suggest that women with estrogen-dependent breast cancer or a predisposition to it may want to reduce their consumption of soy products with a high isoflavone content, said William G. Helferich, a UI professor of food science and human nutrition."

“someone tell me how is it that jeremy piven is this behind on what's now common knowledge? first he missed that there was mercury in our entire fish supply. and now he's missed breaking news from 5 years ago that soy milk is loaded with estrogen? what's next, alcohol makes you drunk? seriously.”

“Soy milk has approximately zero estrogen in it. It does however have tiny amounts of a compound similar to estrogen that is extremely, extremely weak.
Clinical trials have shown this chemical to have no negative effect on the human body, and some think it actually might prevent breast cancer.”
