"Right is right, even if no one is doing it; wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it." - St. Augustine
Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
It's okay. I still chew over that book at random moments, trying to determine what exactly about it disturbed me so much. (Besides the relentless repetitions of oh my and my inner goddess and DOUBLE CRAP and that she's an idiot savant virgin sex goddess.) I know some of my discomfort was borne of the Extremely Damaged Little Boy Soul being played up as very attractive, and that it could be healed to some degree through BDSM sex. She's so bizarrely desperate to please this outrageously controlling man and maybe that just bugs me personally since I find Extremely Damaged Little Child Souls in adult forms more frightening than erotic. The most broken people I've met are black holes. You can pour all the love and time and sex and attention and affirmations that you want into them, and all you're doing is getting ripped apart by the tidal forces of their projected psychological malfunctions. They can't be fixed. You'll only break with them.
I've only read the recap that Jenny Trout (author) does on her blog. I think that's been linked here before.
I wonder if an audiobook version of Takei reading FSOG, would make it more palatable.
"Fact is, we're the freaks, the misfit mutants surrounded by readily-available (and free) information about the evils of fat, the benefits of whole-grains etc. From an evolutionary point of view we're the weirdos with a short-life expectancy or we're trail-blazing a 'new' path." ~ AlanC
"Paleo? Try it, but be wary of the cult mentality that comes with it. Paleovangelists are everywhere and a bit scary."
Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
