Life at 3: obesity

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.

What the fuck, Catholic Church? War on Schnitzels

djerassiOK, “What the fuck, Catholic Church?” is like shooting fish in a barrel. But here it is, anyway. The next instalment in my “What the fuck?” series.

Faves: Bodies, Breasts ‘n’ Birth edition

Hoyden About Town is looking forward to the finalist voting in the 2008 Weblog Awards. Because it’s school holidays and tigtog and I are family-focussed right now, I’ve put together a few of my posts from the past, in the categories Feminism, Breasts, bodies and birth, Bad science, Big pharma, and Disability. They’re not chosen for any strict criteria – just the posts I found memorable, the ones linked a lot, the ones that attracted lots of comments. I’m not sure whether tigtog will find time to do the same (but I hope so!) This should be fun for relative newcomers to Hoyden About Town as well as for people cruising the Weblog Awards nominees.

If you have a favourite Hoyden post, do please feel free to add it in comments for the appropriate category. Enjoy.
