Are you kidding me? The Plainsman is to blame? Your argument only serves to reflect poorly on the intelligence of Auburn students. So basically, it is the Plainsman's fault because it should have known that its readership is too stupid to understand what an opinion editorial means? Really inspires a lot of confidence in the people we have in SGA.

Yes, they are college students and yes, it was a dumb thing to do. And if these were just random college students pulling a prank, that would be the end of it. But as SGA members, they could potentially be future political leaders and should be held to a certain standard of ethical conduct. Ethical breaches should be dealt with now so they can learn not to do stupid things like this later. If you don't, you end up with Mike Hubbard.

While this was obviously an immature move, I think everyone should keep in mind that these people (Smith & Weir) are still college students.

This is a beautifully written article. Thank you for being courageous enough to shed light on what so many people live with on a daily basis. Eating disorders and eating disordered behavior is excruciating on so many levels. It is articles like this (and not bro-science or well-meaning albeit ignorant comments about what kind of person has an eating disorder... or overgeneralizations about what "healthy eating" means) that reduce the stigma, increase awareness, and give a little hope. I'm glad you're safe, healthy, and willing to share your story.

It took "months of thought and effort" to decide on the terrible changes to the security shuttle haha. Why not just change back what everyone hates?

Another cool thing about this article is the picture above of Auburn Cheerleader Catherine Jordan, whose father Jimmy Jordan was also an Auburn Cheerleader.

People who count calories are trying to change their size. Want to gain muscle? Counting calories is important. Want to lose fat? Counting calories is still important. These "arbitrary units of data" are 100% of weight loss and weight gain. To say they don't matter is a dangerous blanket statement. "Variety" is misleading. You could eat ten different processed foods every day for a year, have all the variety in the world, and still be extremely unhealthy. Liking what you eat may matter, but if the foods you like are sending you toward diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, your body may "like" them a lot less than you do. Lifting weights is by far the best and most important way to gain strength. In addition, it improves posture, speeds up metabolism, makes you less injury prone, and strengthens bones. You should not get sick when you see men lifting them. It's because they are taking of the bodies you find so amazing. "1 in 5 women suffer or have suffered from an eating disorder." Eating disorders are largely the result of ignorance and misinformation. You would be hard pressed to find any credible dietitian or health book recommending a 500 calorie per day diet. People assume that starving themselves is a quick way to lose weight, but this is far from the case. Well, those are my observations. I would love to hear your point of view. The "logic that sends people to the hospital on the verge of death" you mention about is perpetuated by the fitness magazines you also mention. These magazines are interested in money and only money. A promise of losing an unhealthy amount of weight in a very short amount of time sells better than advice saying to eat healthy foods. It's as simple as that. These magazines should not be taken seriously by anyone.

Thank you vey much for your coverage of this important event at Auburn University. I want to correct one misstatement in the story, please. I am not the first openly LGBT faculty member at Auburn. Several other very brave gay and lesbian faculty members preceded me. I am the first openly intersexed or transgender faculty member here, as far as anyone can tell. At lest one staff member preceded me in that among all persons who are or have been employed by Auburn. I want to acknowledge all of them for their courage and willingness to live honestly in what was once a far less friendly and accepting environment. Thank you again for publishing the story about Chad Griffin's visit and the support of Allen Sutton of the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs at Auburn, the HRC, and our numerous campus and regional support groups who helped make this event a great success.

Most ridiculous article of the year goes to...THIS ONE. What an absolute joke of an article. Malzahn is not leaving Auburn any time soon. He is not an NFL guy. IF he ever did try the NFL it would be like 10 years down the road (AKA Spurrier). He hasn't even finished year 2 at Auburn and this gets written? In an Auburn publication no less? I can not believe someone from The Plainsman would write something like this in the middle of the season! Unbelieveable. SMH.
