correction** ...fact that when he does use black models they tend to have natural hair.

I actually applauded the fact that, when he does use black models (before this anti fat fiasco). They tend to have natural hair. They tend to feature "swirling couples."
To be fair.... they did try to correct the race issue. I wouldn't call it for douche bag white kids...thats a little harsh. Most of the time it's just the athletic cliques of the school that have that style.
I agree it's nothing new. He prob. could have gone about it better. He must have saw this coming. It is prob. just part of the marketing strategy.
There are black models. That is the only thing that he tried to change about his brand... he has been sued ALOT. They have a far way to go but they "try" to be more inclusive as far as race goes.
I don't know why anyone is surprised this company is sued all the time for discrimination and disgruntled employees. I love aerie bras. They fit perfectly so I probably won't be changing anytime soon. I don't condone what he said but the people that would shop there prob. won't care to much.
I was in hollister yesterday with a friend and I saw a bigger teenager in her with her thinner friend and I wondered how she was feeling. If anything he should have kept his mouth shut for the young and impressionable, that age where every life event seems like the end of the world.
This really is not anything new but he should have just focused on the positive, instead of excluding people. He could of used it to promote a healthy lifestyle.... and not add any large sizes. Now he just seems like a nasty person.
Thats so sad.
"An indian friend of mind said I don't understand asian culture but cultural differences are a pretty lame excuse for mistreating or abusing someone."
I completely the agree with this the cultural excuse is lame. An acceptable cultural excuse is you like to eat crickets or [insert another food strange to me]. Not an excuse for allowing the mistreatment of certain people based on culture. Nobody gets a pass.

I understand that but we live in the west... thus he looks like a doormat.
If you choose to marry into a family like that it's your bed to lie in. I feel for this woman though.
Either way you have to pick a side. I can respect him choosing his family or telling them to either get on board or not being in our lives. Just make a decision...
Why can't his family value his happiness over their own? Isn't that collective. Too much tom-foolery for me. I know myself and this would never work.
That being said I know where I stand on Asian men unless he is rebel and wants to join me in the debauchery. =)
It's sad that she is in that position but I guess it's time for her to make a decision.
If he can't make a decision and pick a side and put your foot down... its unattractive. I guess it's because I've never been attracted to people that can't think for themselves and stand up for what they want. I find it very challenging to take them seriously.
I guess some people must really love Asian men to put up with that dynamic. To each their own.
If there is nothing you can do or are willing to do about this who cares? Live your life. Find your own passion. If some person wants to assume I act like Madea because thats on tv. Who is the fool? Clearly it's not me. lol
I don't think it's healthy to spend your life worrying about what someone else is thinking. If an issue comes up you deal with it, but I don't think it's worth it to get worked up over something that hasn't happened yet.
On the other hand, there are people that dedicate their lives to these issues and I'm thankful that they are so passionate. If they can inspire and motivate them more power to them, it's a great skill to have. If someone doesn't want to be an ambassador for my cause, I'm not judging. I'm sure they have other things to do.

"An Asian man who fears his parents is not inherently weak."
If it doesn't mean he is inherently weak, what does it mean? I guess I just don't understand the cultural dynamics.
This is great! I needed some inspiration to choose my graduation day dress. =)

I was pleasantly surprised but in the comments on Sandra's article. It was a black male that stood up to people spewing vile.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Black Women Have a Sickness When It Comes to Hair
I just thought I would share this comment, from Sandra's article.
"Thank you Ga always comb ya childs hair cause to me it says a lot about a person ... This is why we make no stops headed home when I pick my child up from After school cause Bay Bay her hair looks a damn mess by the end of the day."
I would put the rest of it but she used a lot of emoticons. That was the main idea.
A child's hair says alot about a person?!?! It's a baby...lol As long as the child doesn't look dirty... I think its okay.
I'm pretty sure there is a baby picture w/ my hair wild and free while running from my mom in my diaper...lol ;)
It's a little disheartening that some women think babies have hair "emergencies." Beyonce baby is looking cute and happy. Some people need to stop worrying about things that are not really important. Let the baby run around happy, free and natural... as it should be.
She didn't answer her own question. Women that body build have an uphill battle. They have to eat certain things. It's not easy. lol
These girls are not "bulky." They train way more than any normal person would. lol
My cousin does it as well. She is super petite...just ridic strong. lol
I think what women feel when they first lift is they are developing muscle, while still having fat so there jeans maybe tighter. It's just a transition. When you diet and eat in moderation, you'll be thinner.
I think that dancers workout are great. I don't discriminate when it comes to fitness. I believe the "lengthening" that people feel is part of the balance, confidence and feminity that associated with dancing.
I think there is something to be said for just working on being healthier and stronger. I don't think you can pick and choose what you want with your body. It is what it is. lol There is no "love handle" work out. I mean people market things that way but eat healthy and burn fat. Rinse and repeat.
After your there then you can look in the mirror and be like hmm maybe I want to focus on this area. That's just my 2 cents a fellow fitness junkie. lol

I enjoyed this book! Lots of AHA moments for me. Somethings I knew but it was a good reminder. Especially the section about women tending to have a distorted vision of their accomplishments and abilities.

I agree with this.
I also see that when it comes to BW supporting BM. There are these high standards for how much concern BW should feel for people outside of the family. That is not necessarily reciprocated when it comes to BM supporting BW outside of the family.
There is an acceptable amount of empathy and concern that is shown for everyone outside of your family. It tends to vary from person to person but there is an acceptable standard in society. However when it comes to BW and BM, the "acceptable standard" scale tends to get a little lopsided. As a result of these lopsided expectations, you get the "well what have BM done for me?" question.

I liked white denim but pen ink kept attacking them so I gave up. Maybe it will make a comeback for me... but I'm pretty hesitant to wear white at all... except in shirts and possibly a dress.

I'm still on that path but I got my degree in Chemistry. I'm taking sometime to work in the pharm. industry to decide between PharmD/MBA or MD/PhD. I want to work in drug design. I'm still that crazy!
I try to fight it but my love of science is too strong. I realize business is important too and can be a combo when I'm older. I may want to leave the lab in time.
