“6 Actual Secrets of non-Celebrities Not Having a Good Body:
1. Eating disorders!
2. Endless amounts of time watching television.
3. Maids doing all the physical work in their home.
4. Blaming their kids for not having enough time.
5. No personal control.
6. A belief that looks never have anything to do with health.”
“Ah, Mr. Beaver, I suggest you try to purchase some of the ear art exhibit, if it were for sale. But you probably won't. Because money has value, and to exchange it for goods, the goods should have an equal value. I love art, but every ear art exhibition diminishes the value of what art is. So if this is art, and this constitutes it being alive, then its outlived its purpose.”

“And you've made your point by noting all of Nenshi's achievements. He's an extremely well crafted image of exactly what we want in a leader. He's educated, quick witted, and says all the right stuff. He just doesn't actually really get anything done. So, in case you missed my argument earlier - I simply contend that Nenshi proves one of two things. 1) Good smart people don't make a difference because of the entrenched system. 2) His image is well crafted to appeal to us, and that he's a brilliant politician, but that all of that doesn't actually add up to making changes in peoples lives.
My point about image crafting is this. I'm fairly well spoken, and from time to time I do interesting things. But, if you were to read my bio on linked in or check out my profile on Facebook, you'd think I was brilliant, interesting and handsome. I only post pictures of myself that make me look younger, only share my life when I'm doing something very interesting, and make efforts to be witty in my comments. The odd time I read, I'll share it with others so they believe I'm a reader. I'm an average man, of average height, average intellect, average wit, but I'am proud enough in one trait - I'm seeing things how they really are - not just how they appear. No one's good (Nenshi) and no one's evil (Ford.) That's just not how the world works anymore.”

“Do they teach image crafting along with social media savoir out there at that new Manning institute or whatever it is called? Is Tom Flanagan teching it?”
“HuPo just ran a similar article talking about the problem with Gen Y. Next time, lead with the headline, "Huffington Post hates young people." Or is it only okay to misrepresent everyone else? This rag is the worst.”
“Pretty sure that plus size doesn't include women with an extra 10lbs. Since the article groups these women together and speaks to them like they are one group of people, I'm making the same point. People who are plus size, like more than half the american population - more likely than not have health isues.”

“I've got Nenshi for my mayor. All he does is say stuff. He does nothing. It's all stuff I want to hear, so its great for me. Just as long as I don't expect him to achieve anything, I can continue to approve of the job he's doing. The point is that Nenshi and Ford - very little difference in how they govern, which is really the only way it affects me.”

“As a former Calgarian, I was proud of that city for electing an official with the capacity and eloquence of Mr. Nenshi.
I can't speak to what he's accomplished (I'm not there) but even if it is little as you claim, Mayor Nenshi has the sense to understand the power of his Image to the city, and the country. When Mayor Nenshi invoked "Darwins Law" during the flooding, he won my respect.
Mayor Ford is a walking, talking embarrassment, who's likely under Police investigation for links and associations with drug dealers. He's the best example Toronto's had so far of why Amalgamation was a terrible idea.”

“The HuPo's love to hate relationship with Ford is ridiculous. Every public figure is asked hundreds of questions they don't have time to answer, and tons of the questions are ridiculous and irrelevant in the first place. Here's my point. Why is everyone hating on Rob Ford for not meeting some standard of morality that the majority of Canadians do not either? Why do you expect some higher morality from Ford then you would yourself or your friends?”

“In answer to your two questions, being on the periphery of a murder investigation or two might have something to do with the almost unprecedented scrutiny don't you think?”

“Because he's the Mayor of the 3rd largest metropolitan city in North America, that's why! I can't believe you even have to ask.”
Genghis Q Khan esq on Oct 8, 2013 at 22:17:21
“Having a mayor investigated by cops for something that
may be more serious than fraud or breach of trust is irrelevant?
He wasn't being asked about his sexual preferences,
that would be irrelevant.”

“What you are really asking is: Why should I be held to a higher moral and ethical standard if the guy I can vote in for mayor isn't.”
“Let's use running as an analogy. In my twenties I could run about 10% faster. I'm 10% slower now. It's natural, because as I age my body slowly breaks down, and I have a family now, which means that I find less time to run. I'm not a better runner, I'm not faster, I'm in fact - a worse slower runner. This has zero bearing on my value as a human. There may be some cosmic beauty in my 35 year old, average physique lumbering down the path. But that's not the point, is it. Your entitled to your opinion, and I do feel bad for my comment about 'fluffy and pandering'. After reading so many pointless comments, I took it out on you. My point is that if a post baby body is less physically attractive then the pre baby younger body - it doesn't make the person less beautiful, even if they're physical body doesn't pass societies test of perfection. ”

“I understand and you are right people put a lot into physical beauty w/o caring about the persons inner beauty. ”
“Sorry, but porn is the problem. Fixating on the fake women, fake orgasms, fake everything make them want something that even if it exists is so shallow and without value or meaning that it is essentially worthless. They then devalue real people with hearts to share because of the objectification of the female form.”

“Just look at the TV, or any magazine, or ads, it's all there, everywhere. No need to go that far. ”
“Oh geez. So you obviously care about how you look and have a healthy view of your self. You wanted to get back to your weight, and your genes and personal discipline allowed it. That's awesome. What's not awesome is that now you feel your entitled to some offence because some loser that wrote this demented article is making you feel like your not a 'real woman?' I would bet the world that your comment is not meant to be taken literally, and that in fact it was to brag about the fact that you lost all your weight in 8 weeks. Good for you, but why hide your pride in this as feigned anger???”
“Well this is just a fluffy pandering comment isn't it? Try adding something to the conversation. Really? Nothing more beautiful? The point is that it doesn't matter if physically someone else is more beautiful after giving birth then your wife is. As long as people keep associating a persons worth with their physical beauty, there will be no resolution to this. There are many women who will admit that they themselves were more beautiful prior to birth. What you won't hear them say is that they would give back their child in exchange for their previous body.”

“Are you really so simple as to attempt to tell another individual how they truly feel without even knowing them or their heart? Yes a woman's body is beautiful when it is young but it is equally as beautiful after it has gone through the journey of motherhood so don't make the mistake of thinking because someone gave their honest opinion that they are pandering. So I say again there is NOTHING more beautiful than a woman's body after she has gone through the journey of becoming a mother as her body is now a reflection of her experience and life is all about the journey and what we experience on it. ”
“Hahaha - what kind of realism you want? People who have no self control?”
brunettelefty on Sep 18, 2013 at 01:31:24
“There is such thing as too much self control when pregnant. Women are supposed to gain weight when pregnant - around 40-45 pounds is expected for a normal-weight woman. You're not supposed to come out of childbirth looking like you did before you got pregnant.”

“There is a difference between popular feminism and equality among the sexes. It would be very neat and tidy for me to assume your point of view is one way or another so I could rally against it, but I'll just assume your a reasonable person who saw inequality and chose to fought for that injustice to be removed. You would be at a fault though if you were to suggest that feminism hasn't been used as a vehicle to perpetrate similar acts of oppression on men, potentially as payment for wrongs committed on the other side of the issue.”
Liz Wilson 2 on Sep 18, 2013 at 05:25:35
“many people see any gain in equality for women as an act of oppression for men especially since it was a challenge to the patriarchal system that automatically gave men an advantage. ”

“Seriously, your writing cracks me up. I agree with everything apart from the somewhat pretentious vocabulary you use to make your incredibly well thought out points come across even more intelligent.”
