Quote of the Day

Salon’s Mary Beth Williams on that awful article (and upcoming book) about the mom who bullied her daughter into losing weight:

So thats how you get a book published, ladies. Just write an article about what a mean mommy you are, get a lot of sexy media attention and hate mail for it, and watch the bidding war commence! That way, we can be intergenerationally negative toward females the fat little girls we put on diets, the daughters we call garbage, and the mothers who behave in such frosty, neurotic and controlling ways toward them. Want a bestseller? Try being a contemptible bitch.
