NOW Bitches: Happy Love Your Body Day! on October 18th (It was so momentous that I forgot)

This came in the e-mail last week from the NAGs about their Happy Love Your Body Day! It read:

Take a moment today, October 18, to honor yourself and love your body, just as it is.

Carry that spirit with you throughout the year, as you love your body every day!

Today marks the ninth annual Love Your Body Day, a day of action in our year-long Love Your Body Campaign. In response to unhealthy and exploitive images of women in the media, NOW Foundation established the Love Your Body Campaign to promote positive, healthy images of women and girls, protest harmful and offensive advertisements, and raise awareness about women's health issues.

Here are some suggestions for actions you can take this month, or any time!
  • Organize a picket or start a petition drive to tell advertisers that their ads are offensive to women and create unhealthy expectations. Check out the "bad ads" and the good ads as well!
  • Create T-shirts with messages that uplift body-esteem like: "My Sum Is Greater Than My Parts," "I am Not my Hair," "Real Women have Curves," and of course "Love Your Body."
  • Host a forum on women's health issues. Get the facts!
  • Hold a LYBD fashion show! Whether you're styling in cultural dress, after-five attire, or weekend garb, embrace women's lovely shapes and shades.
  • Local eateries not meeting your standards? Stuff the suggestion box with suggestions for better food choices.
  • Organize a rally to create awareness of body image issues. Have a festival—with good music, good food, free services and information!
  • Send a Love Your Body e-card.
  • If you are pregnant, abort your fetus.

More action ideas are available on the Love Your Body website!

According to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) 80 percent of women express dissatisfaction with their appearance. Help reverse the trend and take action today!

Help remind yourself to love your body every day with our 2007 Calendar, featuring art of dead fetuses submitted in the Love Your Body Poster Contest. Buy one today, and share it with someone you love! Perfect for a girl in your life.

Just trying to keep it current fellahs.

Where to start...oh hell, I'll go chronologically.

Lib, if you want a name. I proclaim you "The UH Slavedriver," seeing as you so handily bark out orders with such skill.
Well geez, that's what you seem to respond to. I've been posting on this thing a long time (albeit anonymously like a wuss - uh, oh wait). You've read my stuff before; "Jesus is Just Alright With Me", "UH Liberal Hater Lover", I hate America, blah, blah blah, don't bother," and even "UH Moderate" at that other blog that seems to have already folded. This is the most you have ever replied to my posts; I think I may be on to something here...
And quit automatically assuming I am a liberal. I may not be as conservative as you, but I ain't no Denise Hewitt. Don't you know that hasty judgments are a point of weakness?

Your obviously a white guy. Your parents have some money, or maybe had some money, seeing as you are not at UT or A&M.
Wow, that is like, so observant. Well, you're partially right.
*I am white (brilliant, Holmes)
*My fam does have some decent middle-class monies (that my family was able to earn because of the benefits from the G.I. bill after WWII, they were sharecroppers and factory workers before that. Y'know, welfare.)
*However, I am at UH for non-financial reasons; I had a child baking in the fetus-oven at the start of my first semester (that I would not have aborted, by the way) and I didn't really care to go to UT or A&M anyway (as my uncle says, most jobs just want a diploma, it doesn't matter where it's from much of the time).
Do you wish you were at UT or A&M? Is that part of why you're so unhappy?

It's hard to tell if you are like a big brother giving out orders to your younger siblings, or if you are to emulating your father as he barks out orders to his illegal alien and Black employees.
Like I said, I've been trying to analyze what makes you tick for a while. It came to me yesterday that you were in the army; and what's more, you talk about it like it was the best time of your life (not that there is anything wrong with any of that, in itself). Communicating with you like I did in that last post seems to get you to open up. I feel special now, do you?
And my father has no black or illegal alien employees (or black illegal alien employees) he works for a state-subsidized corporation, something all these damn libs can't stand. He doesn't raise his voice often; he's basically a good man, he's even nice when we have a political disagreement. Was your Dad nice to you?

Evidently you are new to this blog or you would know that weak minded UH students are those students that routinely follow the blind directions of their liberal professors.
Ah, Mon Ami. Do you ever think you might mistake a student's legitimate, well thought out concluding agreement with weak-mindedness, simply because it enrages you when you are in the minority opinion?
And like I said before, I am so not new to this blog. I was here when Saved By the Bell was still posting. Did you really think I was all these different people? You're the one who styled the game this way, paddna (and this is a game).

I would consider you a weak-minded student since you can only spew hate and disgust without logically forming a credible counter argument to mine.
You are so silly. Look at my posts under the different aliases. Ya see, back when I was "Jesus is Just Alright With Me" I was really nice; hell, I was trying to be genuinely sympathetic to whatever problems you obviously seem to suffer from. I previously labored under the old mantra, "You'll attract more flies with honey than with vinegar." Well sweetie, you seem to be one vinegar-soaked fly. Do you still view me as "weak-minded?"

I don't really respond to articles posted, long unhinged responses, or mindless blahs.
Ohh, okay. Well respond to my final "JJJAWM" post. It's here: http://uh-conservative-underground.blogspot.com/2006/09/al-uh-daily-cougar-never-offenders-of.html
If you don't have time to read it now, I'll repost it later (when it's slow; kinda like now). I am REAL interested as to your response. You kinda look like a hypocrite pansy-boy for not writing back (and I know you of course aren't, I just want to make sure that anyone "new" to the blog doesn't read it and mistake it for a sign of ideological weakness on your part).

I do have a timetable in my day. Sometimes I post as early as I can. Sometimes I post late. Sometimes I don't post at all.
Nothing wrong with that.

I don't have enough time to spend hours on this thing. I do it during my breaks. I read, digest the tripe, and formulate a response to the tripe.
You digest the tripe and formulate a response...well I hate to tell ya, but you may have stomach and small intestine problems, because your mental digestive tract isn't properly breaking down and absorbing the "tripe" (which does have nutrients, by the way). Remember what I said about hasty judgments being an obvious weakness? Your taint is exposed.

I'm glad I sound like the Conservative talk radio fans you talk. I might be one of them.
Really? Which one? Because I don't recall being bested in an argument with any of them (or threatened with death, for that matter). Who are you again?

I don't use spellchecker because its a waste of time. I'll usually go back and check for grammar and speling on a different break, or correct something if someone sends an e-mail or posts a comment.
I spell-checked your post yesterday, on a whim. It took me one minute, it can take you two and a half without practice. Nice to see your representing your ideology (or whatever the hell it is you are representing) with such professionalism. It reflects positively on other conservatives, really.

Calling David a "resident cotton picker" is not meant as a racial slur. Your the first to even bring that up. I try and label each writer something just for the fun of it. I saw David as being in line and row with all the other liberals on campus, and I thought cotton fields, hence cotton picker.
Puh-lease! That is about as viable an explanation as George Allen and Macaca. Of course blacks weren't the only pickers of cotton. Conversely, they aren't the only people to enjoy fried chicken and watermelon, but they are negatively associated with the practice, making it a (get ready) stereotype, which I know guys like you never do.

And I am not the first one to bring it up either:
Hey, question: what do you mean by cotton-picker? I've never heard it before, and according to Al-Google, it's a racist slur. Was that your meaning?

I can guarantee you that this was not me; I type with better grammar. Although I did notice you didn't respond when this guy asked you nicely.

But anywho, here's an idea: walk to the Mobil Station at Elgin and Scott. Get into a friendly conversation with a black person. Then casually use the term cotton picker in front of them. See what happens, and tell me later.

So the above sends me two possible messages about you. You are either:
A. A lying racist that is lying about being racist. Or...
B. A total retard who is too stupid to know when he is making an obviously racially-charged comment.
For God's sake, I've seen you use the term "kool-aid drinker" before too. Been living in the U.S. long? Next please.

I labeled long ago columnist and friend Maria "Guigi" Carminati as the "Arch-Bitch-up of the Church of UH Liberalism." I have a lot of respect for the Hispanic people. Shh!!! They're even in my family. Blacks and Vietnamese too!! At least the hot ones.

Oh God, please don't do this. Haven't you ever seen D.L. Hughley's stand-up before? According to him, it is terribly obvious that when a white person starts listing his non-white associates to prove how non-racist he is, he is covering up an element of himself he does not want to display (hint-hint, wink-wink, nudge-nudge). Are you comprehending that notion, or do I need to say it simpler? So do I, though I don't feel the same need to list all their freaking races. Compensating for something?

And you are most definitely wrong that Blacks were not the only ones that used to pick cotton. Hispanic sharecroppers picked cotton. My brother-in-law, picked cotton as a young boy, and he's most definitely a white boy.

Well damn poindexter, I see you're a History Channel fan. I'm sorry for being, "most definitely wrong that Blacks were not the only ones that used to pick cotton."
I did not say this in my last post. I mean, of course I didn't say that (boy, would I look stupid!), I did not imply the notion that you are failing to put into words. And good for your white brother-in-law, if there was a point to you telling me that.

I have a lot of fun with Salinas. I respect him for continuing to write after each shellacking I give him on this blog, when other weaker writers would have quit. And believe me, I've forced my fair share out.
Like who? I'm not necessarily assuming you're talking out of your ass (though that is always a distinct possibility, from what you have shown me), I'm just curious. If this is true, then what absolute failures they are.

Your statement that "Picking cotton is what black people used to do" in an insult to the proud Hispanics and Whites that were right there beside the Blacks in picking that cotton.

Hate to break it to you buddy, but the cotton fields were by-and-large segregated in the postbellum era, let alone when slavery was still around - mainly because of racism-justifying, conservative-reactionary propaganda that the upper-classes spread to the poor black, white, Hispanic and Asian workers. Wanna try again?

Oh, and this...
Lib, if you want a name. I proclaim you "The UH Slavedriver,"
Ah...that's okay, you aren't good at stuff like that. I remember back at the UH Moderate blog you took a mildly amusing anecdote of mine ("Screw the Mods") and have since gone on to make your sig way too wordy, beat the concept into the ground, and make yourself look desperate. You can go on and keep that.

I like this better: UH Screwdriver - because I seem to "so handily screw with your screwy 'tard-head with such skill."

Oh, and be sure to get your little rat-ass fanboy to try and figure out who I am for you. I'm sure it wouldn't be to hard for me to find out who he is (especially if he is who I think he is). I'm not sure how the UH policy makers/enforcers would feel about a DC-employee/Comm student feeding information about students to a guy who makes allusions to murder. Maybe I'll check.

What a douche!
 
I refuse to accept the ramblings of a commenter with a Multiple Personality Blogging Disorder (MPBD).

If your fetus was birthed, then you should have not time at all reading and commenting on this blog, but working hard with your studies and planning for the future to take care of that child the best that you can.

Quit analyzing me down piece by piece. It's really boring. Hell 90% + of the time on this blog I don't want to be taken seriously.

It's a joke guy. This blog is how I vent my anger. Otherwise, I'd really go crazy in our UH world.
 
UH slavedriver... "Kool-Aid-Drinker" has nothing to do with race, it is a reference to the Jim Jones cult Mass suicide in Guyana in the late 70's the cult members were told to drink poison laced Kool-aid and did so. It is a reference to those who refuse to think for themselves even when it has serious consequences. It is often used for those who blindly accept ideology without any self-reflection.

I'm giving you another F. Pick it up or your going to fail Blog 101 this semester. See if there is tutoring available on-line or on campus.
