The National Women's Law Center released a health report card for the ladies of America (you can view individual state results). It did not go well. Obesity is up, binge drinking is up (10% of women), leaisure time physical activity is down, and more women have chlamydia. I did see my home state's smoking stats dropped, which is good. While I support efforts to fix these problems, these specific issues all relate to individual choice. Change and healthy living starts with the person in the mirror.
Obviously the patriarchy is doing its best work right now. I bet this study gets discussed in my next "Young Patriarchs of America" meeting, bwahahahaha.
