The average active adult needs 2,000 calories per day in order to function in a safe and healthy manner. If I’m active to the point where I consistently run 1+ hour every day, then it is far more likely that my caloric needs are around 2,400-2,500.
Considering that, a meal of 1,200 calories would perfectly suit my needs. It would supply roughly half of my calorie requirements, which is a God-send since a fast food meal is relatively cheap. It’s a great value, especially if I don’t have much time to cook or have the resources to prepare my own meals!
The average burger is going to supply me with significant protein and carbs. That’s exactly what I’d need in order to build more muscle and have enough energy to make it through a workout. Even the sugar within the meal can be beneficial in supplying me with a boost of energy and can stop me from feeling hungry for a prolonged period of time. Not half bad.
Is this the most healthy meal known to man? Of course not. But it’s still a very reasonable deal and the calorie count is well within the average adult’s daily needs.
Don’t let calories scare you! You need them. If you were capable of burning off an entire meal within the hour, you’d probably be dead by now.
1200 empty calories in a meal
next to no nutrition. all the calories are sugar and fat. that’s it. you’ll have no energy and have glucose spikes in your blood because the lack of fiber because of the lack of complex carbs. this is diabetes in a meal.
so no, you should not be hungry for diabetes
Nutritionally, this BK meal contains roughly 28g of protein and 3g of dietary fiber. It potentially also includes 35% of our Vitamin C daily requirements, 2% Vitamin A, 12% calcium, and 27% iron. Of the 1,010 calories (that I could verify directly from the company’s nutritional information guide), only 410 are from fat. That isn’t a terribly significant amount of fat, in the long run, nor are the nutrients small enough to be viewed as negligible.
Eating this will not cause you to get diabetes. Eating this meal is perfectly fine if you do have diabetes, as long as you are able to adjust your insulin intake accordingly. So don’t use an illness as your debate point - Diabetic people are not a prop.
I have an eating disorder and depression (which produces anhedonia, the inability to experience pleasure, including being able to enjoy food) and, on days when I’m not able to get myself to eat, a cheeseburger is a godsend. I’m usually not able to finish a whole happy meal by myself, but it is one of the fastest, easiest ways to get fat, protein, and, yes, carbs into my system so I don’t die of malnutrition.
So people can shove it with their concern trolling and superiority complexes; you are not better human beings because you live off kale and quinoa (which isn’t ethical to eat anyway, you hypocrites).
How can you be raped by your boyfriend when y’all had sex before? i think you just think it was bad sex and you want to blame him for it.

Sometimes I wish I had to power to project my memories into other people’s heads.
The model featured in one of Burger King’s infamously suggestive ads for the BK Super Seven Incher has said the company used her image without her permission. In a statement, the woman said that she was publicly humiliated and calls for people to boycott.
objectifying and sexualizing women and their bodies without their consent = capitalism
Another quote from the model:
“There is something VERY wrong with the fact that they felt entitled to do that to my face without signing a contract with me.
I believe in sexual expression in art and the media; it’s beautiful and necessary for a healthy society but IT MUST BE CONSENSUAL otherwise it’s RAPE.”
As someone who has survived sexual assaults, I do not in any way feel like this model is out of place at all (nor is she appropriating anyone else’s pain or experiences) in describing the situation this way. I 100% agree with her.
"if power came from being civil and polite: racists, sexists, transmisogynists, homophobes, ableists, classists, and all-purpose assholes would be foraging for algae in caves instead of basically running the whole damn world."
and listen, no matter how you frame it: being shitty to a racist, sexist, transphobe, homophobe, or ableist in no way makes you as bad asthem.
(Cont) spilled milk so now I have to burn the house down
Of course we don’t have to support every problematic industry just because we support others—I feel like you’re new here, as that’s an ongoing ethical dilemma (although not one I have about the sex industry): How to live in this world with as little complicity as possible with the brutality and cruelty of it.
But what you’re asking—I mean you’re obviously not IN the sex industry—so you’re asking that I support the abolition of something that paid for my college, that pays my rent in a nice apartment, that pays for my car insurance and my dogs’ health insurance and healthcare. Without the sex industry I would still be making minimum wage in a daycare or $12/hr as a nanny. I don’t know if you’ve tried to live solely on those numbers, or if you have a family or a partner to help you: life on those numbers is not pleasurable. It is not worth living. It is stressful and tense and involves asking yourself which thing that you need can you go without in order to get this other thing that you need.
The world you prohibitionists dream of—the without patriarchy and racism and imperialism—it isn’t real yet. You don’t know what it will look like when it finally happens, but your insistence on focusing on eradicating MY livelihood as the ultimate manifestation of patriarchy WILL NOT bring that world into being. It won’t. And in the meantime it will put hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of women back into low income or starvation situations that you have no answer to because rather than focusing on frantically and vocally organising to raise minimum wage, change the structure of agriculture, insist on rent stabilisation in all these cities that are rapidly gentrifying, pour money into dv shelters and fight against sexual assault—all your feminist Prohibitionist energy has gone into this one area that increasing studies are proving to be not at all like you think it is. Until your world exists you HAVE to focus on the other parts: making a world where poor women can live. Poor people, people of colour.
Otherwise this heated and myopic focus on the sex industry reveals itself for what it is, an insistence on holding a certain specific morality and metaphysical value of sex for women to be more important than women’s ability to eat, stay safe, feed their families, have a quality of life, and stay ALIVE.
Tldr: If you aren’t in the sex industry, your feelings about it need to take a backseat to listening to those who are and supporting is in what we say we need.
Well since we’re clearly talking about two different things here, please provide some type of source so I can read up on it.
Have you ever heard of dysthanasia? It’s the concept of keeping someone alive unnecessarily with the consequence that they suffer pain. A fetus born prematurely at 24 weeks has a 50% chance of just staying technically alive for the next 12 months.
That’s not a 50% chance of growing up and having a life, that’s a 50% chance of “living” in spite of terrible suffering like brain bleeds, seizures, metabolic disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, and partial or total paralysis, all of which are extremely common if not inevitable in a fetus that under-developed. You are advocating for prolonging the suffering of babies that will never feel warm arms holding them, will never taste food, will never crawl or hold their own head up, but who will suffer with every breath until they die.
Tell me again which group is supposed to be compassionate and value human life?
You (presumably) do not know her circumstances, her personal story or her history. Regardless, it’s still their choice to make, and their right.
On the other hand, I’m glad that your school has such a good program!
WTF is wrong with you? Are you the abortion police? Do you get to personally pass judgement about who is worthy of health care and who isn’t? Fuck off.
Halloween can be scary for children with severe food allergies.
But this year families in Chicago and beyond are reaching out to kids who can’t eat peanuts, milk or other common allergens by putting a teal-colored pumpkin on their front porches as a signal that they are handing out treats that are safe.
Based on this information, the woman. Please be aware that “handicapped” is considered ableist language, though. Thank you for asking, womentakinguptoomuchspaceontrain.
WTF is up with these oppression olympics questions? Do they think people with well-thought out view points are going to hear their shitty attempt at a gotcha question and suddenly roll over screaming “oh yes, you’re so smart, I never thought about that!”?
