    To save space, this school in Zhejiang, China put their running track on the roof. So smart.

  3. But, even if you’re not fat, if you’re a woman, you’re probably still so caught up with your toxic weight shit that you can’t even see straight. During my working life I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been part of these ridiculous workplace group diets. Almost all of the participants have been women. Sometimes they even try to bribe one another with money. They all put in ten dollars on the first week and whoever loses the most wins the pool at the end of 4 months, or whatever it is. Look, I’m like you. I’ve done it too. And at a perfectly normal, healthy weight I’ve done it. All because of a sick, shitful, ugly little voice in the back of my head that tells me I ought to be smaller.

    And that’s the rub, right there. Exactly why do we want to be smaller? What exactly is the appeal of being smaller? How does it benefit us? Does it make us better mothers? Better students? Better lovers? Better artists? Scientists? Friends? Does it make us more badass badasses?

    No, no, no, no, no. You must see that it doesn’t. It doesn’t do anything but make us smaller.

    Babies and puppies are small. So are dimes and Skittles. You’re a fucking woman. A woman! You are entitled to occupy as much fucking space as you like with your awesomeness, and you better be suspicious as fuck of anybody who tells you differently.
    Why, ladies? Why must we continue to whittle ourselves down? Who is it for? What is it for? You can walk through a certain aisle at the pharmacy or at the grocery store and see the language of diminishment all over the packaging for weight loss aids of all kinds. “Shrink your waist.” “Lose inches off your thighs.” “Slim down.” “Get skinny.”

    How about “Grow your mind.” “Increase your confidence and productivity.” “Beef up your knowledge.” “Enlarge your scope of asskicking.”

    That’s a valid message for women and girls: grow, expand, branch out, open up, get bigger, wider, faster, stronger, better, smarter. Go up not down. Get strong, not skinny.

    You are not here to get smaller. You are not here to have a thin waist and thighs. You are not here to disappear. You’re here to change the world! Change the fucking world, then! Forget about “losing a few pounds.” Think about what you could be gaining instead.

  9. Under your tee shirt it’s flat as the Midwest and I
    want to live there. I’m sick
    of cities, of coasts, of oceans
    relentlessly nagging the beach. I want the meat
    and potatoes of you, want the obvious
    choice for big spoon to be you, want to
    give up my cocksure swagger and swoon
    over yours instead. I want
    the senior prom and the picket-fenced
    lawn and the American flag
    on the back of your truck, want to fuck
    like the other half does—want to god-bless
    your foreign body, the whole long slim
    length of you, the endless
    prairie of your chest, the rough
    plain of your cheek, your terraced
    ribs, the muscled goldrush
    thrust of you. Yes: I want the simple
    plus-minus of us, the luxurious,
    brainless, obvious-us, want to touch
    you in public and relish
    how nobody stares. Don’t tell me
    your fears. Let’s just swap our worst
    pick up lines. If I wanted love
    I’d go back to Brooklyn, to the woman whose body
    is so much like mine. But I want this whole
    wild country, idiotically brave, catastrophically
    free, and you, cowboy, to come home, home
    on the range with me.

“I think eventually they get bored of pictures of me—just walking the dog, he’s got a doughnut in his mouth, he’s lost his keys, he’s sleeping on the curb…long story. I remember when Lord of the Rings came out there was a lot of that. They had pictures of me carrying my dog inside the vet’s office, coming out of 7-11 at three in the morning with a doughnut, not looking good.But I think eventually they got bored, he just goes in bars and watches soccer games.”
