Paula breaks the shocking news that telling kids that they are obese fills them with shame and then they gain weight, because DIETING CAUSES OBESITY AND EATING DISORDERS. Here, read this goddamn research report.

Paula goes on the most perfect rant about the psychology of fatness and thinness and PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS! This is a better rant than in Episode 8: It’s Not About You.

This bears repeating.

Parents: Don’t make your child hate his body. Trust us, they’ll find a reason to hate themselves on their own.

Pound Not My President Donald Trump gave bullshit remarks at a breakfast for Black History Month. He sounds like a child whose English is his second language.

Here’s an excerpt:

black-history

For the record, not all African Americans live in the inner city, the inner city is not a terrible place, African American communities are, in fact, amazing places filled with great people and not a cause for Trump’s fake-ass concern, and Trump is real dumb and racist.

Mike Pence is also real dumb and racist. They should suck all the colors of the dicks.

How Taylor Swift Played the Victim and Made Her Entire Career by Ellie Woodward

It all began with Kanye running up on stage and saying, “Imma let you finish,” which was a crazy person move, but played into America’s fear of the Angry Black Man.

We’re on to you, Tay-Tay. The poor little white girl thing is real tired.

Episode 25: You work for me, bitch!

This week, Paula and Amy discuss the Inauguration of Donald Trump and the Women’s March on Washington.

Paula (a psychotherapist) is starting a Trump trauma support group to help people who are feeling unsafe, threatened and triggered by Trump.

Amy created a list of ways to stay clear during the Trump administration:

  • If it’s not fun, you’re doing it wrong (aka You don’t have to suffer to make a difference)
  • Turn off your TV & computer
  • Learn about EVERYTHING
  • Remind yourself WHY you’re trying to save the world

The Fatphobic Disaster of the Week goes to the show “This is Us” featuring Chris Sullivan, the love interest of Chrissy Metz’s character, who wears a fat suit. Like, whaaaaaa?

The Body Positive win of the week is Jay, a model speaking out for men who love big women. Check him out and his vlog here.

Drew Barrymore disappointed Paula & Amy this week but they still love her tons.

The recommendations are Missy Elliot’s new AMAZING video (below) and the Netflix show “Black Mirror”.
