      And they say “rape culture” is a myth! Every one of these guys are jerks - and some are dangerous. Go back and read this again, and imagine how you’d feel if they said this stuff to your mother. Not cool, right? They should be ashamed of themselves - but so should their mother, their family, their friends… anyone who hears this crap and doesn’t do anything about it.  We try to teach our kids tolerance and respect, but it’s clear that the message isn’t getting through. We tell our daughters to be vigilant. We tell them to watch their drinks at a bar because someone might put drugs in it. We tell them that no matter how much work they put into having a fit, toned body, they have to cover it up. We tell that they’re to blame if they get assaulted - they drank too much, they showed too much skin, they danced too provocatively, they went out alone, they talked to strangers…  Don’t you think it’s time we flip this around and start teaching our sons to respect all women - fat ones, skinny ones, old ones, tall ones…. not just their moms and sisters. Why not teach them that sex is not a team sport (unless consensual), and it isn’t a spectator sport either. Whenever I hear about another group of drunk guys violating a drunk girl

      Katie let me dumb it down for you. I AM healthy and I AM obese. It’s not just about what my blood work says. My joints and internal organs are just fine, thank you. In fact, I’d put my health stats up against yours ANY DAY, so you can see what real HEALTHY women look like.  You may have a better BMI than I have - but that’s just a number, honey. A healthy individual has a healthy spirit, outlook, attitude and mind too. Healthy people have healthy relationships, and a healthy sense of self-confidence and self-worth.  It is very clear that you have some significant issues with your spirit, outlook, attitude and mind. You probably have unhealthy relationships, and you definitely have significant problems with your sense of self-confidence and self-worth, since you seem to feel it is your responsibility to champion healthy body weight in a forum about healthy body acceptance.  What you fail to realize is that in your tiny little body exists a tiny little brain that doesn’t even have the ability to grasp the concept of what TRUE health looks like, and a tiny little heart that will NEVER know or give UNCONDITIONAL love.  I feel so very sorry for you Katie. Beauty is what beauty does. You, my height/weight appropriate little friend, will never see the true beauty that is in this world - and that is so sad.  Go live your “healthy” life, Katie, and let the rest of the world live theirs. You have no idea just how much you don’t know about life, love, and beauty - so it’s time for you to stop pretending you know anything at all.  You’re ignorant and don’t even know it. How stupid is that???

      Check with MY doctor. He will tell you that this plus size woman has excellent blood pressure, normal cholesterol levels, not even a hint of diabetes or “pre-diabetes”. I don’t have back pain, cancer, heart disease or asthma. My body weight has not cost you one penny more in medical costs than yours has cost me. I am
      significantly healthier than a smoker, drinker, or drug abuser. MY doctor will tell you that. I am HEALTHY.  What isn’t healthy is how you insist on making assumptions and judgements about people that you know nothing about. I think maybe you should talk to YOUR doctor about that. You just can’t lead a healthy life when you’re this ignorant. Any doctor will tell you that it isn’t healthy to walk around with an air of superiority, thinking that you know how to live life and be healthier than the next guy.  My world has room for the sanctimonious ignoramuses, now make room in yours for the healthy fat people and you’d be surprised at what we can accomplish together… when we start looking for similarities in each other - not differences.

      Everything you’re saying about endo is correct BUT women should also know that endo can be painless as well, and even relentless and debilitating cramps aren’t necessarily a sign of endo.  Endo is a complex disease and we still aren’t even 100% sure what causes is. One theory is “retrograde mensuration” - meaning that the uterine lining that we are supposed to shed monthly doesn’t always leave the body. Some of it backs up and finds something to attach onto - and then, the next month, it responds to the changes in hormone levels exactly like it would if it was actually still in the uterus - which means it thickens and bleeds.  When this happens in some locations, it can be painful, and it can cause webbing and scar tissue to form, which can also cause pain. BUT NOT ALWAYS. It is literally different for every woman. For some women, their first clue is infertility. Other women can have it and never know they do - no pain and no infertility. It just depends on where the patches develop.  Also, it is important to know that extreme pain doesn’t mean severe endo. Stage 1 endo can be more painful than stage 4. Again - it is different for every woman. Severity of pain is not indicative of the severity of the disease.  So, PLEASE, see your doctor if you are concerned that you might have endo. DON’T wait. Endo is unpredictable - make a list of your symptoms and take them to a doctor - preferably a gynaecologist. Things like pain on the days just before you start your period, constipation, diarrhea, low back pain and painful sex are all symptoms of endo. Your doctor can ONLY definitely diagnose endo with a laparoscopy - an operation where they cut tiny holes near your belly button so they can put a camera inside and see what is going on. It is day surgery - you go home the same day, with only a bandaid on your incisions. It is the ONLY way to be 100% sure.  I had 7 laparoscopies for endo - then a BSO (bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy: the removal of the ovaries and Fallopian tubes only - leaving the uterus). I guess that would make me an expert.

      Pouding chômeur DOESN’T HAVE MAPLE SYRUP in it!!! It is “poor man’s pudding” and made with a caramelized sugar syrup poured over a white cake batter BEFORE it is cooked - meaning the cake rises through the syrup, which settles on the bottom.  Maple versions do exist, but real pouding chômeur doesn’t have, or need, maple syrup anywhere near it.

      Ignorance is bliss, isn’t it?

      No one is talking about slaughtering any dog. Existing pitbull owners can keep their animal. No dogs will be put down arbitrarily IF this ban is upheld. Like the ban in other places - the province of Ontario, for example - existing pitbulls are “grandfathered”, which means they are legal. You just can’t breed nor import more pitbulls into the province.  If you took a second to get the facts, you wouldn’t look so stupid.

      Quebec is an enormous province and Montreal is a city within it. It’s not about being “easier” to say Quebec than Montreal. What a lazy cop-out. Would you say Dallas when you mean all of Texas? Go ahead and try telling all Texans that they are nothing more than what people hear and read about Dallas - because it’s “easier” to prejudge them all the same, rather than recognize and respect their differences.  Please do - stay out of Ontario and Quebec. Your small and closed mind wouldn’t appreciate the beauty and culture of either place.

      There’s a lot more English than in Montreal and Quebec! The Eastern Townships (L’Estrie) has plenty of English (my family lives there - and many are anglophones), the “North Shore” - up by the Gaspé, boarding Labrador, where the English is closer to Newfoundland English than anything else, and the Outaouais has plenty of English places too. Even the Laurentians - pictured a lot in this story (Mt Tremblant) has services in English too. People fear the province is French only - but its not. It’s French first - but not only. I gave found that in the struggle to be understood, those who speak French are far more likely to try to speak English than the other way around. I hate the bad reputation the province has because I love the province and the people who make it so awesome.

      It’s sarcasm. And it refers to the way some Canadians feel about Quebec separatism… which is so sad. Separatists are a minority, and yes - the French only stuff sucks and is wrong, but it’s not what the province is about. The language issues drive the politics, but the beauty of the province isn’t political - it’s real and physical and it’s in the people and the places that are proud of being different, and proud of being the same. Quebec haters make me so sad, because they are missing out on some of the most amazing people, places, and things in Canada.

      1. Quebec is a province. Montreal is a city within the province.
      2. The “ban” you are ranting about is in Montreal - only. Not the entire province of Quebec.
      3. The “ban” has been challenged and has been temporarily suspended.
      4. Pit bulls are banned in ONTARIO - a province. They have been since 2005. Are you also boycotting Ontario?  If you don’t want to spend your tourism dollars in Quebec, great. They don’t need your hypocritical, ignorant money - I’m quite happy to visit and spend my money there as often as I can.

      Everyone with a cell phone thinks they can record whatever they want, and use it as “proof”…  But cell phone photos aren’t proof of anything. How do we know that this car wasn’t parked on the side of the road when this picture was taken? How can we tell what is going on based on one still photo? We can’t.  Take pictures and videos all you want. There is nothing wrong with that. Hold people accountable for their actions. That’s not my point. My point is that pictures ALONE aren’t proof of anything - because they don’t give the whole story. “Proof” needs more than just a visual record of an event. “Proof” needs context. “Proof” is something that can be challenged and still hold up. This photo isn’t “proof” of anything. The laws have to catch up to the technology - because right now, any moron can post a photo that can go viral - and lives can be ruined, just like that.  Stop believing everything you see online. If someone can use a cell phone to take a photo, they can also use photoshop to alter it. Pictures like this aren’t worth 1000 words - they’re WORTHLESS without authentication and context.

      I call bullshit on the “my point is… why don’t they have hands free…” blah blah blah. The person posting wanted to have her 15 seconds of fame for “catching” a cop doing something “wrong” and then tries to deflect when it turns out that it isn’t wrong at all. Bullshit.  We ask a lot of our police officers - they risk their LIVES for us everyday. They sacrifice their personal lives. Their families come second to the job. They work in the rain, snow, heat, hurricanes, blizzards… They work nights, weekends, holidays - and really, they may be “off duty” but they are always police officers, and they are always watching out for us.  And what do we do in return? Criticize. Complain. Ridicule. Mock. Harass. Annoy. There isn’t one police officer out there who can say that they can go a full shift without someone giving them a hard time about the job they do.  Stupid shit like this photo is just one of the many ways that people show their lack of gratitude and respect for the job they do - and, the truth is, the officers aren’t doing it for your gratitude or respect. They do it because they want to help and make a difference in someone’s life.  So if they need to use their cell while they are driving - which is not illegal - I say back off and let them. I don’t care if they are calling to check on their dying mother or ordering a pizza - they have earned the right to use their own judgement in determining whether or not they can drive and talk on the phone at the same time.

      What’s going to happen when the girl gets hurt, or hurts someone else, because she isn’t as talented as the rest of the squad? Will her parents sue again, this time for their daughter’s injuries? Or maybe the other kid’s parents will sue them for causing the injuries… Ultimately, the only winners in this story are the lawyers.  You try out for the team. You make the team or you don’t. You put on your big girl panties and move on. If you can’t take being cut then you’re NOT an athlete - being cut is a part of life for most athletes. Grow up kid. Tell your parents to back off.

      Canada has a lot of these… Cadbury chocolate, J-Cloths, universal health care, some pretty awesome “fast food” (shawarma or poutine anyone??), munchie-boxes (from pizza delivery places even!!), relatively good public transportation, and Jaffa cakes. Plus, we might not put washers and dryers in the kitchen, but a lot of apartments in Quebec put them in the bathroom - meaning fresh and clean WARM towels for you when you step out of the shower!!  (And I prefer 26 May 2016 over May 26, 2016 - but that’s just me)

      You don’t know this woman and from a very short story, you deduce that she has an issue with food that needs to be resolved? Fuck you. You don’t get it at all. It’s not about HER relationship with food… It’s YOUR relationship with people who look different than you - YOU are the “problem”, not this woman. Stop assuming you know ANYTHING about anyone else and let people live their own lives without your judgement… And, whether you see it or not - your comment is dripping with judgement. Fuck you and your judgement. This woman is strong, beautiful and very lucky that she isn’t YOU.
