Misery

  1. They left out "be white," but it's implied already, so I guess that's okay.

    Goddamned disgusting.

    1. Indeed. Apparently anyone who is naturally "bronze" (or darker) with or without the help of the sun/spray tan need not apply. Ditto if your hair doesn't go "down" (and I suspect there's a limit on how much "volume" is good).

  2. Ladies, I'm sorry that you have to deal with "no lipstick/too much lipstick." I'm so glad that I'm a guy.

    1. Some of us just don't, but there may be a price (and not only if one wants to be a cheerleader).

    2. I'm thinking I should start emulating Robert Smith from The Cure.

    3. I'm somewhere between Mark E. Smith and Shane MacGowan, so I think you'll be leading the cheers ahead of me.

  3. I want to puke.

    How about an infographic with dos and don'ts for the entire college pro sports machine? Like, just don't feed the machine?

    Nah, that'd be too simple.

      No performance enhancing drugs
      So much performance enhancing drugs that you get caught

  4. I wonder if UW has a companion poster for its male athletes.
    Possible content
    -No felony arrests for domestic violence or sexual assault
    -No no-show jobs from athletic program boosters

    I could go on....

  6. Why the snark? The outrage? The physical reaction?

    How different is this list from your syllabi?

    This list sure seems to come from people who are tired of people not knowing the rules, the expectations, the guidelines, etc.

    1. I think it is the criteria themselves. My syllabus doesn't say you have to be physically fit or conform to a particular look to succeed in my class.
