I guess questioning Robb’s credentials makes you a “cunt.” 
I couldn’t remember commenting on Robb Wolf’s blog anytime recently. Unfortunately I did a google search and found someone is commenting as “Melissa M.” I would not be surprised if this is a persistent troll I’ve had a lot of trouble with, who I suspect is also “Carole Sampson.” Either way, I don’t comment as Melissa M, any time I’ve commented on Robb’s blog it has been through the Facebook comments. And this is exactly why I encourage bloggers to use commenting systems that tie people’s comments to their verified identity, something Nikoley mocks in this exchange.

The newest testimonial on Mark’s Daily Apple is one of the saddest I’ve seen so far. The woman describes her struggles to lose weight from her “so pudgy” state and then tries to frame herself as naturally thin in the comments. It’s pretty obvious to many commenters that she should seek professional help and that this is only a testimonial to how to use paleo to mask disordered eating. 

As someone who has suffered from an eating disorder, this post threw up a lot of red flags for me. It seems like you are 1) using the paleo to achieve that feeling of “lightness” that is so addicting in the midst of an eating disorder, 2) using paleo as means to further restrict your diet, 3) calling your self “pudgy” when you were an athletic 121 pounds , 4) the bingeing…counterintuitive to most as a symptom of a restrictive eating disorder, but it is very common to binge eat after restricting for so long, 5) the pictures…yes, some people are naturally thin and are healthy at lower weights, but based on your history, I strongly believe you are not this exception.

And finally, I know that you will disregard all of these observations because eating disorders have a way of making you be in denial of your own symptoms. I know I don’t know you, but you remind me so much of myself when I was sick and didn’t know it. I could be completely wrong in my assumptions, but I have a terrible feeling that I’m not. Having an eating disorder can kinda of feel like a high a first, but then it really sucks and is really scary. So, I don’t know….be careful? Be kind to yourself? Maybe look into your schools mental health services?? You are a beautiful girl in all the pictures that you submitted, but I am worried that your lower weight is not a healthy and sustainable one. Good luck…I hope I am wrong about the disordered eating aspect, and I wish you health and happiness!

Robb Wolf posted this video of a man using Hershey’s kisses on an escalator to get glances up sexy women’s skirts as they bent down to try to retrieve the chocolate from the escalator. At the end, one woman’s dress is snagged by the escalator and she ends up in just a bra or underwear.

One woman pointed out that “humor doesn’t have to be at the expense of women” causing the anti-feminist reactionary brigade to swoop in with their straw feminism and oppression olympics.  

One of the best rebuttals from the thread : “Nikoley, this place where you have permission to look up a woman’s skirt is called a relationship… I do not have a problem with the commercial. It’s dumb, but didn’t offend me at all. I only commented because of the several horrendous and creepy comments that followed. THAT’S what I had a problem with.”- Carly

Nikoley wrote a blog post in response where his version of straw feminism is someone related to women being jealous of sexy women and whatever it is, we should all just shut up because it’s not as bad as the Taliban

The best way to understand modern or Shiite Feminism, is by its bait and switch nature in order to keep its cadre of dupes in line. It’s not really about genuine historical oppression of women by men (as exists to this day in the Muslim world) as touted, along with the empowerment/equality narrative. Now, it’s mysogynist in nature; which is to say, a loathing of other women who enjoy their natural roles; who derive power as women without all the pouty entitlement bullshit; who enjoy natural sexual and suggestive flirtatious banter and flattery from men; and who know how to use it to their advantage.

Hmm, wonder what would happen if someone criticized various “paleo” gurus for having red faces?Oh wait, I already did that, and people were not terrible happy about it. I learned that in the diet community, people’s appearance is never relevant, unless it’s someone you disagree with.
I’ll admit I was wrong though, back then I thought eating a certain diet was responsible for problems like rosacea. Unfortunately, despite what many diet gurus will tell you, there isn’t a known dietary cure and plenty of these gurus still suffer from it. Same with having a belly…

Katherine : Antonio, Miller publicly apologized and feels very, very badly. How long is it okay to rake someone over the coals for an isolated error? Have you ever done something you’ve later regretted? Kindness, conscientiousness and charity are two way streets.

Antonio Valladares: PaleoPeriodical, so being open about fat shaming is OK if you’re not anonymous? Got it.

Karen Phelps: “Antonio”, you and I both know that whatever I say, you will twist it and take it out of context to serve your purposes. In your pursuit, you fail to recognize people who are actually on the same side. I don’t appreciate you attempting to turn this series into something it’s not. It was begun with pure intentions and I’ve received tons of emails and support for the stories told here. It’s impossible to have a rational discussion with anyone hellbent on pushing their own agenda.

Antonio Valladares: PaleoPeriodical (sorry, I don’t know your name)

‘…you will twist it and take it out of context to serve your purposes.’

I don’t do this.

‘I don’t appreciate you attempting to turn this series into something it’s not.’

What I am attempting to do is clarify an important topic, precisely related to this statement that I agree with:

‘It’s my hope that these dispatches will resonate with others out there and help dispel the notion that everyone in ancestral health have hunter-gatherer physiques and zero health struggles. I’m tired of the apologies and I’m tired of people not feeling welcome.’

I think is a fantastic sentiment, I fully support your intentions, otherwise I wouldn’t be concerned enough to comment. However, supporting G Miller seems incongruent with this theme, kwim?

…not sure why you put my name in quotes.
It is a rather spectacular name, I’ll admit. Maybe too strong in diversity for you? ;-)

They seem to think Antonio, who has an excellent blog, is a fake person, because it’s so strange to to question AHS’s bizarro land where their definition of raking through the coals is questioning whether Miller should be an AHS keynote speaker. And actual harassment, lying*, and hateful language? Well, it seems like a stretch they’d ever criticize or make an attempt to exclude these from their conference. They couldn’t even be bothered to mention his actual name in their pitiful now-deleted statement about it. No one even asked for any so-called raking, they could at least make a real statement about it, but they’ve done nothing instead. And they are delusional if they think what Miller said was isolated, he deleted MANY questionable Tweets after he got attention for the more infamous one. 

* next time I do something questionable I’ll just say it’s an “experiment" too.
