•@The sex is terrible: Try teaching him techniques to please you. If he is unteachable, you are much too young to settle for terrible sex!!!!
•To the girl whose boyfriend bought her a scale: dump him, he’s a real jerk.
•@ “My mother causes nothing but misery.”
Join the club.
•@ “I miss painting you like one of my French girls.” Wut? U don’t know my lyfe bish!
•@Bad sex but good husband material:
You need to start communicating with him. You can start out by asking him what sort of things he likes and then you can tell him what works for you. Try to tell him things that will lead him away from the way he’s been doing things. Be upfront (but maybe leave out the word rape).
•Your boyfriend should learn that A LOT more goes into health than just your weight alone. Here are some things that are healthy: 1) Daily physical training covering broad domains, 2) Eating meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, and seeds, enough to support daily activity without supporting excessive fat, 3) Getting eight hours of uninterrupted sleep each night.
Here are some things that are extremely unhealthy: 1) Eating only 1,500 calories per day, 2) Being a controlling douche.
To answer your question specifically, gaining a small amount of weight is completely normal, and you are not wrong.
•@BMI Question, your boyfriend being downright abusive. Watching weight is important for health reasons, but this crosses the line, and your weight is healthy. It sounds like you are taking good care of yourself and moderating your own weight at a HEALTHY level (meaning NOT starvation). He is attempting to control how you take care of yourself as well as how you perceive yourself. Please be careful.
•@I Love America: Why is it a bad thing to say that? America is frikkin’ AWESOME!
•@thinking of death: People shouldn’t be depressed because they question their religion. And people don’t have to be so scared of what happens after death. I know that humans fear the unknown, but we should also face the inevitable. Live our one life the best way we can, all that “yolo” stuff. But you’re not emo for thinking of life after death; otherwise all humans would be emo.
•Sometimes things get so heavy, I don’t even want to tell them to eagle rants, because someone might be able to guess who I am. There’s no one I can talk to about this stuff, and I sure as s*** wouldn’t burden any of my friends even if I could. I just have to bury it inside. It’s 8:20 and I’m going to bed, because I don’t want to be awake right now.
•I had a Hill internship and can tell you that it’s not important or cool. So, please, save us all on eagle rants, facebook, instagram, and everywhere - STOP TALKING ABOUT IT.
•Woah, the June 13 edition of Today@AU is actually readable! Now if we can just get Eagle Rants to be readable again, we’ll be all set!
•@sex is terrible. communicate!! just because you’re married doesn’t mean you owe your body to him (took me 6 years to figure this one out :( ). if you’re not enjoying it, say so.
•asians are the new jews.
•true confession: I read eagle rants and FML on my iphone whil I give my bf hand jobs. He think I’m just picking mood music songs and that’s why i’m looking at my phone the whole time, but really I find it terribly boring to give a 10 minute handjob, so I seek distractions. Do other girls do this too?
•It must be nice to have money.
•I miss being able to fall back on living in a dorm as a housing option. Especially now that my grad school living arrangement may not work anymore.
•My friend (ex friend now that I’ve banished her from my life) cheats on all her midterms and finals and is now seeking for someone to take her LSAT for her…of course in return for $3,000. She goes to GW and I really want to snitch on her, on behalf of hardworking students like myself. What do i do?
•@“My bf bought me a scale” - You are right, he is a massive Hole of A. Don’t let his complex turn into your complex, or worse yet, cause massive body image issues and/or an eating disorder.
•To the kid who thinks that sexism is funny- you’re damn right.
•Alex Knepper had good ideas.
•I guess no one wants to have any feels. :(
If anyone plays Katawa Shoujo, I will be amazed.
•I can live with being your second choice, but I am no one’s backup plan.
•To the woman whose boyfriend bought her a scale: Dump him. Immediately. He is encouraging disordered eating habits/eating disorders. Speaking as someone who has struggled with her eating habits and weight for most of my life, that is something you want to avoid.
[Editor’s Note: ‘Sup.]
•Happy father’s day. God bless us, everyone. Except for you, Josh. You suck.
•I miss being at AU during the academic year, when eagle rants were necessary and/or relevant.
•If you just kept going, there would be no end of the universe. There would be no wall marking its end. Even if you couldn’t continue on, there would be more of it. I feel like that. So tiny in myself, unknowing of who I am and what I want. I’m lost in me.
•Bring back Alex Knepper’s columns. Give him a special alumnus spot
