How is the message in this “commercial” okay?
Research on the combination of an eating disorder and binge drinking has primarily focused on the patterns of college-aged women, but the phenomenon has also been noted among young men.
Studies show that college students engage in this combination of self-imposed malnutrition and binge drinking to avoid weight gain from alcohol.

Wintergirls: New Years Scene
The fingernail of a new moon watched us stumble across the bunny hill behind the condo. We made snow angels and tried to blow smoke rings with our smoky breath.
Cassie got on all fours like a wolf and howled at the moon, eyes glittering. I made a bad wolf. I couldn’t stop giggling. She howled louder and wilder, trying to bring real wolves out of the woods—
I hear her creep down to eat plain yogurt in the dark, a fugitive stealing calories to which she does not feel entitled.
A tough Wyoming cowboy who just happens to like blouses
Sissy Goodwin isn’t gay; he’s been married for 45 years and has two adult children. As a young man, he was a rodeo cowboy who rode bulls bareback, a free spirit who never shied away from a fistfight. The former aircraft mechanic loves to drink beer, play golf, throw steaks on the grill.
What sets him apart, he says, is what he calls gender independence: He just likes to do most things in a dress.
A resilient guy living it out in Wyoming, a state he refers to as “the Mississippi of the West” for its disposition toward him, Goodwin has been beaten, arrested and glared at for years - but he continues his defiant dressing habits to this day.

I KNOW THIS MAN.
I KNOW HIM.
I MET HIM WHEN I WAS WORKING ON THE REZ IN SOUTH DAKOTA.
HE IS HONESTLY ONE OF THE MOST FANTASTIC, SUPER-NICE MEN I HAVE EVER MET. He went to WORKSITES in a skirt. And he gave no fucks.

Arizona Highways magazine seemed to have crossed a line with its new “Autumn in Arizona” issue, which features the words “Why It’s Better Here Than It Is in Vermont” on the cover. Bragging is acceptable, even expected, by such publications. But slighting another state’s world-famous natural wonders?
In Vermont, which is nearly as famous for its easygoing, mild-mannered locals as it is for spectacular fall foliage season, such an insult could not go unnoticed. Vermonters are accustomed to some bickering with their “Live Free or Die” neighbors in New Hampshire. But Arizona? The folks at Vermont Life magazine responded by creating a mock cover with the words “Gorges in Vermont & Why Queechee Gorge Is Grander Than the Grand Canyon.” ~ tinyurl.com/lc2ursw
