I think we can all agree, pizza is pretty damn good and it comes in approximately one million varieties. Eating pizza is wonderful and an enjoyable and most people like to eat it for that reason. Pizza: A Positive Experience For Most People.
Except… the way our society perceives you eating pizza can seriously affect your enjoyment of said pizza. The pizza itself is still good, but the baggage it comes with can seriously colour our overall experience.
This is actually true of pretty much all things. Whether it be food, sex, exercise, TV, meditation, or any other activity that we might enjoy all on its own, how our culture reacts to us engaging in said activity is a real thing, and it’s a thing that can get inside our heads.
When skinny girls eat pizza, it can be seen as cute. But if a fat girl eats pizza? Nope. Today, I want to talk about food specifically.
I’ve been thinking about this a whole lot lately, for one reason: Gilmore Girls. Now that Netflix is “bringing back” Gilmore Girls (but can it truly be brought back? Is not the moment gone forever in the sands of time?

Remember this classic scene?! Here are some serious questions we have about the last 10 years of Rory’s life! Here are some serious questions we have about the last 10 years of Lorelai’s life!
I love Gilmore Girls. I once had a friend plan to make a Luke Danes fan zine and I was totally on board to contribute to that. (If you are that friend and you are reading, I am calling upon you: Now is the time! It is probably inappropriate for me to single you out right now, but I don’t care — Luke Danes is important to me!)
