  1. “If a friend jokingly comes up behind a girl and slaps her butt, that is, by today’s definitions, a sexual assault.”
    Yeah. Fancy that. Sexually assaulting someone is, by definition, sexual assault. Never saw that coming. Funny how it works out.
    The writer should probably actually read a book, or a web page, on the legal definitions, in various jurisdictions, of sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, rape and other terms. She would be surprised to find out how they are defined and how are punished.
    “Men can now be shamed with the ‘sexual assault’ offender label for minor acts.”
    Aww. Everybody feel sorry for the menz. They can’t go around grabbing boobs and slapping butts like they use to. (Actually, they can, but that’s a separate issue.)

    Oh, also, “BACON! YAY!”

  2. Well, the AHA randomly suggested increasing carbohydrate intake to >60% of your total calories. Then excess carbohydrate intake was linked to lower HDL cholesterol, and insulin resistance was linked to heart attack.

    It’s probably a mix of factors. There is no “eat as much as you want of this, shun that” diet that will always prevent ischemic events.
