Life at 3: Fighting Fat. Ooo boy. It probably wasn’t ever going to be good, was it? Good food, bad food, headless fatties and children in marginalised families reduced to obesity risks.
The longitudinal television program Life at 5, following from Life at 1 and Life at 3, is now showing. The whole thing has my Hoyden antenna up a bit, so I am going to post a few discussions of some of the aspects of the show I was less impressed by. Today: breastfeeding.
After nearly a year in concept, the No Chicks No Excuses website listing women speakers covering a wide variety of expertise has been launched, so that organisers no longer find it so terribly difficult to find women who know how to speak at a large event.
Paraphrasing a comment I just made at LP: The “shit happens” comment is revealing despite being a media “gotcha” beatup, and what it reveals isn’t pretty.
Just when you thought it was Ladies of Leisure being at fault now it’s working mothers making their children fat.
She wrote all about it, which means I don’t have to!

Who knew that advocating for single mothers to be NOT shamed and for their children to be adequately supported by society was tantamount to claiming that single motherhood was “the most advanced, liberating experience on the planet akin to putting a man on the moon”?
I really should listen to my good friend and work colleague who tells me not to watch Sunrise because it makes me angry. But as I was watching the tennis last night, that was the program on this morning when I flicked on the TV to see how long it had taken Nadal to defeat Cilic. It didn’t take long… Read more →
Because I’m pretty sure I’ve already won our game of bingo.
Yes, Andrew: a pdf labelled ‘Chapter 4′ is never ever going to be the “whole report” now, is it? So perhaps your pronouncement that “not once did it mention floods” was rather courageous (in the Sir Humphrey sense) on your part.
The Spin is strong in this one Luke. Ladies of Leisure, that is older women not participating in the workforce and not looking for paid employment, will be the ruin of us all apparently.
