        content in movies aimed at young people tends portray stereotypes of girls/women being sexually available in demeaning and stereotypical ways for boys/men. I don't mind my kids knowing about sex--in fact, they have a good working knowledge of the biology of it and I hope a decent understanding of the emotional component--or even reading about it. what I object to is the pornification of sex and the fucked up messages girls and boys receive before they're old enough to distinguish what's real and what's not.

    beginning of a change in attitude towards overweight people. Watching my best friend beat herself up for YEARS about her weight gain was very sad, especially because I just knew it was mostly beyond her control. We've spent so much time together since early childhood and it was always clear to me that I could eat so much more than her and not gain weight. It absolutely wasn't about her being some kind of glutton and me having superior willpower. 40 years on I can still eat whatever I like and she is still constantly policing herself. It's luck, or genetics, or something else that we haven't yet figured out, because if it was about strength of character, willpower or sheer physical effort she'd be half my size.
