I f’ing hate it when men sabotage and disrespect women, particularly when they do it because of the way women look (too fat, too thin, too short, too tall, not pretty, blah blah blah) and it’s even more annoying when the men themselves actually look like ass (which happens A LOT), but reading this interview with Carol Lay reminds me why I hate it even more when we women do it to each other.
I don’t know where Carol Lay gets off. I really don’t. We don’t need more hate and bad body dynamics…there is plenty in the world already. The reviews on Amazon for her book so far are through the roof (5 stars across the board), but I just keep reminding myself that these are the people who obviously read diet books pretty frequently…and so I don’t really trust them to start with. I’m happy for Carol Lay that she’s thin now and that it’s solved all her problems, but I really don’t need her preaching to me (or the rest of world) which is what this interview sounds like to me.
Carol Lay, if you’re listening (reading), go to this site and read as much as you can: Kate Harding’s Shapely Prose. Get back to me when you’ve learned something. Ridiculous.
