Illma Gore: 'If anyone is going to be threatened by a small penis, it's Trump'
The body I painted is not fictional – it is a portrait of a friend. In portraying his body with Trump’s face, I wanted to raise questions about how we think about gender: if I painted Trump with a massive penis, why would we then take it as a signal that he is powerful? Why would a small penis be viewed as effeminate? And what is wrong with effeminacy to begin with?

What it’s like to be that fat person sitting next to you on the plane
In that way, air travel is sadly familiar, a microcosm of what happens so often as a fat person. I am watched — and judged harshly — as I try — and fail — to fit into a space that was made for someone else. I am always too big, always too much, always unacceptable. I must make myself smaller and smaller, reducing and reducing endlessly, my stubborn body resisting at every turn. Still, I am never quite small enough to make anyone else comfortable.

Why BMI Isn’t The Best Measure for Weight (or Health)
But in recent years, more researchers argue that it’s not the most accurate way to measure body weight. For years, scientists have said that BMI can’t distinguish between fat and muscle, which tends to be heavier and can tip more toned individuals into overweight status, even if their fat levels are low. In the journal Science, the latest data from University of Pennsylvania shows that BMI also doesn’t tease apart different types of fat, each of which can have different metabolic effects on health. BMI cannot take into consideration, for example, where the body holds fat. Belly fat, which is known as visceral fat, is more harmful than fat that simply sitting under the skin. Visceral fat develops deep among muscles and around organs like the liver and by releasing certain hormones and other agents, it disrupts the body’s ability to balance its energy needs. Even relatively thin people can have high levels of visceral fat, which means they might be considered healthy by BMI standards, but internally they may actually be at higher risk of developing health problems related to weigh gain.

What No One Tells You About Losing Lots of Weight
Maybe diet culture could stand to take a page from sobriety culture, too. Just as you don't complete the twelve steps and celebrate with a bottle of wine, the idea that extreme weight loss has an end point after which life reverts to "normal" leaves dieters with very little recourse once the thrill of weight loss has ended. For those who have struggled with food, maintaining new habits is a lifelong, day-by-day process.

Weight-loss discourse would be healthier, too, if more focus were placed on the small, measurable, tangible positive effects it has on our lives rather than the giant, life-defining, theoretical, eventually unattainable ones. John Janetzko, for example, spoke glowingly about the new role sports play in his life – he's discovered he loves doing something he'd never felt confident enough to try before. Julia Kozerski waxes poetic about farmers' markets and bike rides.

Carrie Fisher is a national treasure. There's no other valid opinion about her
After an illustrious career in multiple media, she starred in the new Star Wars film – then proceeded to shut up haters who criticized her weight

She was the best part (sorry not sorry) of When Harry Met Sally. She script-doctored the (way under-appreciated) 1993 Mike Myers cult classic So I Married An Axe Murderer. Her pen helped turn around the scripts for blockbusters ranging from Sister Act (1992) to Last Action Hero (1993) to The Wedding Singer (1998). Yes: her words made performers as diverse as Whoopi Goldberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Drew Barrymore all sound smarter and funnier.

The audiobook of her 2008 memoir Wishful Drinking, inspired by her 2006 one-woman autobiographical play of the same name, was nominated for a Grammy.

Yes, in the year 2015 a living legend like Carrie Fisher – author, playwright, screenwriter and actor extraordinaire, as well as a brutally funny human being who has been unashamed and unabashed about her flaws and struggles – is still being told she isn’t good enough because of how she looks.

“Star Wars” lets Princess Leia age realistically: Is this an alternate Hollywood universe?
Of course, this is still the entertainment industry — the one in which Anne Hathaway is already losing roles to younger women — and it comes with its inherent inevitable pressures. Speaking about the new “Star Wars,” Fisher’s mother, Debbie Reynolds, confessed to reporters last year that her daughter had “worked her body off for one year to not have a body,” and Fisher confirmed, “They didn’t hire me, they hired me minus 35 pounds.” And when a colleague remarked this week how wonderful it was to see the new trailer showing the actress with her costar as “an age-appropriate-looking couple,” I couldn’t help recalling that Harrison Ford is fifteen years older than Fisher.
