@JonnyFoy Gross. She very explicitly says that her pieces here are not the same as the "original scholarly research" she has published in academic journals. Also, you aren't on her dissertation committee nor on any of her academic search committees, so I'm not sure why you're breaking down her "mainstream" writing for us anyway.
But - AHP - with potential coworkers like this guy around I cannot BELIEVE you're stepping away from academia!

@audraaudra during my first month at college out of state (many years ago) I called home and woke my dad up from a nap. this is what resulted:

dad [groggy]: hello?
me: hi, dad!
dad [instinctively]: where are you?
me: ...Chicago?
dad [frantically]: WHAT?!
me: ...because I'm in college there? you helped me move into my dorm a few weeks ago?
dad [sheepishly]: oh. right. so how are you?

There is always (at least) one line in each Baba Yaga missive that knocks me back in my seat, mouth agape.

This time: Now do what you can to know yr wolves & keep them all strong, not starving.

@Statham Yes, but as successful action-movie star Jason Statham, online dating is bound to be different for you.

@Kira-Lynn@twitter i also think (hope) this does not fall so much under "weight-loss tips" as much as "nutritional advice for individual people who want to achieve goals that are, because of their personal nature, off the table for abstract judgment." i know that food is a hard issue to talk about for a lot of people and as much as i fully respect anyone's prerogative to be like "FUCK LOSING WEIGHT, THAT'S A LOADED METRIC AND NOT HOW I WANT TO THINK ABOUT MY BODY" i also fully respect someone else's right to be like "i am interested in working out more and also dropping some weight, how can i do that healthily and not self-deprive?"

@supernintendochalmers I think that's the most succinct summary of how I feel about all this mess, it's a joke is not a get-out-of-criticism-free card.

@franceschances Exactly. "It's a joke" is not a get-out-of-criticism-free card.
