I was trying to explain to someone why xoJane is so bad, which led me to link up to some oldies but goodies. I thought it would be fun for us to share our favorite train wrecks from the past, also for newcomers to get caught up.

This one just totally tickles me every time:

Then, of course, there's the all-stars:
Yoga-gate

What are your faves?

My personal favorite will always be Marianne's Color Run: http://www.xojane.com/healthy/xofitnessing-so-i-did-a-5k

It features:
-The return of "fitnessing"
-Stress over where to find neon clothes
-The cultural appropriation of the Color Run
-The fact that it took Marianne over an hour to walk a 5k, and she doesn't see anything wrong with that.

My runners up are the time when Marianne eavesdropped on a conversation she didn't like, and was mad she didn't make a scene:
http://www.xojane.com/issues/i-cant-believe-she-just-said-that-when-do-you-cause-a-scene

…and the article where Julie detailed what she ate. That one is notable not for the content, but because Marianne came in and attacked Julie in the comments, because Julie said something along the lines of "these are the healthy habits of which thinness is born" (when describing how her parents didn't keep sweets in the house, exercised regularly, etc). Marianne flipped a shit and went for blood, and that was the first time I thought "Yeah, Marianne's an asshole". In fact, unsurprisingly, a lot of that comment section turns into "eating a healthy diet and exercising keeps you slim? How DARE you suggest that?" However Julie, since she's an actual professional, doesn't engage with anyone. Article link: http://www.xojane.com/healthy/im-not-anorexic-im-just-thin

God, Marianne is probably my least favorite XOjane writer.

ETA Marianne is also my least favorite. It's hard to decide who's the worst though. Marianne, se,  the insufferable KT Bradford. And so on.

The Disagreement Banana Exists For A Reason

Some classics from way, way back:

"Terry Richardson can't be a rapist because he f**ked me and a sheep and at least one of us kinda liked it"

http://www.xojane.com/it-happened-to-me/it-happened-me-i-slept-terry-richardson

 

"Everyone stop taking Plan B immediately! (I need all of it for myself because of all the barebacking I do. Condoms – ew, amiright?)"

http://www.xojane.com/healthy/get-it-together-girls-every-goddamn-pharmacy-new-york-out-plan-b-every-one

 

There was another one by Cat towards the end of her xo-stint where she proudly announced that she was finally getting her driver's licence and the whole community was like "Uhm, is that a good idea…? You're high on meth like 99% of the time?", and then suddenly everyone zeroed in on a newspaper article about a car accident caused by a meth addict with a big picture of a very unwell looking black woman, a screenshot of which Cat had put in that article to be funny (it said something like "LOLZ maybe I'm gonna end up like this loser" under the picture), and someone googled the full article and it turned out, the black woman in that picture was actually the VICTIM in that car accident. Then commenters accused Cat of racism, Cat doubled down and kept posting "That's a broke down looking woman though" (I specifically remember that choice of words because I thought it was so incredibly clueless and dumb of her) and everyone got maaaaad and then it was deleted without explanation or acknowledgment and everything went back to business as usual.

Idk…We were almost to three pages and they were all links or reminiscing about articles. GOMI was down last night and maybe stuff got lost?

I don't know how I missed this one back then, but holy shit. Reading about this woman's life made me feel infinitely better about my own. 

God bless you, Caroline, and your truly terrible decision making skills.
