Cats Sue IKEA Over “Double” Bed
New York City felines Tofu and Gertie have brought a class action lawsuit against DIY furniture and meatball retailer IKEA, claiming the company falsely advertised its SMULA tray product as a “double bed.”
"It’s obvious you cannot fit two cats comfortably in this tray, and I have 27 pictures to prove it," says Barry Snyder, the attorney representing the cats. "Whether IKEA purposefully misled consumers is up for debate, but one thing’s for sure — any cat who purchased a tray to share with a friend deserves his money back."
It’s still too early to know how many cats will join the suit, or whether it will hold up in court. A hearing before a district judge is scheduled for June 11th.

Male preferences for female body types

Are female concerns about their weight justified by the real reactions men have… were shown silhouette pictures of nude female profiles. These profiles were systematically varied in size of breasts, buttocks and legs… fairy extensive personalty data were also collected, it was possible to determine typical personality characteristics of these five groups.

Group I prefers an “ideal type,” the “prom queen”: ample breasts, moderate or smaller buttocks, and moderate legs. The members of the group tend to be sociable, well organized individuals, with definite plans for a career.

Group II prefers moderate breasts, small buttocks, and moderate legs. The members of the group tend to be nurturant, generous, helpful, not self-seeking, not achievement-oriented, and not majoring in business. In addition, they tend to avoid drinking.

Group III prefers ample breasts, moderate buttocks and ample legs. The members of the group tend to be disorganized and distractable; they are likely to feel inferior.

Group IV prefers moderate breasts, small buttocks and sturdy legs. The members tend to be unfriendly and not given to much social activity. Strangely, they report being breast fed as infants.

Group V prefers full breasts, moderate buttocks, and moderate or slender legs. The authors suggest that this type of figure appears in men’s “girlie” magazines. The members of the group tend to be showoffs, independent, self-confident, and nonpersistent. They smoke and drink heavily.

Men appear to have preferences in female body types, but not all men have the same preferences. However, some generalizations also may be made from the data. None of the five groups preferred small or very small breasted figures. No group preferred large or very large or very small buttocks. No group preferred very thin legs. On the other side, moderate, ample or full breast may be preferred; moderate or small buttocks may be preferred; slender, moderate, ample or even sturdy legs may be preferred.

It therefore seems that buttocks offer the most narrow range of acceptable or preferable sizes; they must be neither too full nor too small. At the same time, in contrast to the apparent objective of general weight-reducing programs, it appears that both legs and breasts are preferable in the moderate to full range.

Sometimes I’m like, “I’m getting a little tired of feminism.” Then again, this is from a college textbook on personality psychology published in 1974.  

And what the fucking fuck!

It is no surprise that something like this could or would be published forty years ago, especially at 69 Psychology Ln, Penisville, Zip Code 80085— but it’s “interesting” to step back a second and see it on a fucking black and white page in a book hardbound and sold to college students. This is not a Buzzfeed article. This is not a Cosmo magazine. This is not a recipe book or KFC menu breakdown. This is a “peer reviewed” article promoting the idea that good boys like good girls and assholes like sluts and nobody wants a fat chick.

Directly preceding this article was…

"Just how widespread the problem is among girls may be gauged from the fact that in one study of high school seniors reported by Dwyer and Mayer, 60 percent of the girls had at some time tried dieting to reduce their weight; among the boys, only 24 percent had tried reducing.

It is well known, of course, that many boys need to reduce for other than medical or social reasons; namely, they are required to be at a certain weight for entry into contest of boxing, wrestling, or other sports, including football at a higher league levels. But, among the girls in the study mentioned, proper medical examination showed that only 16 perfect really needed to reduce for medical reasons— leaving 44 percent who had reduced for social or “cosmetic” reason.

Well, gosh. That’s right. That’s what we women are up against. Always and forever. Never forget. If you gotta ask you already know, brah.

The article proceeds into rates of correlation between physique and temperament (fat girls? pragmatic and cooperative; fat boys? aggressive), intellect and delinquency.

How do we wrap up this chapter in its final summary?

Any physical feature in which boys or girls feel they are different from the normal (or from what is desirable) tends to cause them worry… Girls’ concerns about the attractiveness of their shape certainly appears to have a basis in the preference of men for female shapes: Buttocks should be of a moderate size, neither too full nor too small; and legs and breasts are preferred in the moderate to full range.

I’m assuming because that was one of the nine bullet points on the chapter on biological bases of personality “buttocks should be of a moderate size” will be on the test.

What is person A saying to person B? Fuck the patriarchy. If you read the descriptions of those silhouettes and didn’t consider and objectify your own body to figure out what personality type you attract you’re the next wave of feminism. I’m still caught up on this shit.

Hilarious class descriptions from the community college. These quickly talked me out of spending my money on community college classes. Especially *technical* writing classes.
