1. I don’t think people need to be non-anon to post or contribute to the discussion, it’s a bit disingenous to pretend we don’t understand why people might want to stay anon when there are people like hugo out there, whatever means people need to feel safe is ok by me.
2. I believe I’ve found some problematic entries of james bliss, I can’t be sure if this is what the anon people are referencing, doubly so because I’m white like james, but see for yourself:
Here’s an entry where he criticizes South Asians:
This sounds a lot like someone going down the path of Tim Wise:
He entitles this entry “Just to be clear on my position….” but wouldn’t that be appropriating a position he cannot claim as a white guy?
Sets himself as different from other white people:
“Ever wish you were a pretty white lady?”
Criticism of second-wave feminism

Alright, THANK YOU for these links.
Whatever personal conclusion I come to about James Bliss, I can’t tell WOC how to feel about him. So I’m just going to publish this and let people do their own reading/thinking on the matter.
Come on, now! He asked. And everyone knows when a poor ol’ redemption-seeking, ex-girlfriend-almost-murdering, students-sleeping-with, mansplaining-good-Christian-fella asks for things, he must be given them.
Here are a few of my proposed venues:
A worm farm. For science!
…and see what’s causing all the backup down there while you’re at it, could you? Ah, there’s a good chap.

I know we’ve only existed for a few days, but I think anoldladyonfire should win some sort of award for best submission of the year.
(Have to send a submission and not an ask since there’s a link)
He says here they knew about the murder attempt: http://twitter.com/#!/hugoschwyzer/status/158436843220766720
There’s reason for any of them to be lying, really; HitNS could just be covering their own asses and saying they fired him so they look better. So who knows really.
The plot thickens!
I probably won’t be able to get back onto this Tumblr until tomorrow night, but please, if there are any new developments, don’t hesitate to post them immediately to our Facebook page! There are seven admins right now and someone is usually always online. And new fans would be swell, obviously. :)
Hugo claims he “resigned” but here’s what the press release says for Healthy is the New Skinny (thanks to ethereon for finding this):January 14th, 2012
Press Release from Healthy is the New Skinny
Healthy is the New Skinny addresses change in their organization
HUGO SCHWYZER NO LONGER ASSOCIATED WITH HEALTHY IS THE NEW SKINNY
LOS ANGELES, January 14, 2012: Due to past events that have been brought to light in Hugo Schwyzer’s personal life, we have decided to end all ties and he will no longer be working with our organization. While his performance with Healthy is the New Skinny (HNS) has been professional and valuable in helping to raise awareness about the struggles of dealing with body image issues in society, he will no longer be affiliated with HNS.
“While we have appreciated working with Hugo, we were not made aware of the extent of the events that have transpired and do not feel that it would be prudent for him to continue working with HNS.” – Katie Halchishick, Co-founder of Healthy is the New Skinny
We are dedicated to building the best team possible to help further the HNS movement. Even though he wasn’t a good fit for our team we wish Hugo success in his personal and professional life.
Healthy is the New Skinny is a multi-platform movement to bring a message of health, joy and responsibility to the beauty and fashion industries. Through bold and creative initiative, HNS works with media, corporate, and modeling partners to create lasting change. The Perfectly Unperfected Project is the non-profit outreach arm of Healthy is the New Skinny. PUP brings a powerful, interactive multi-media presentation about health, self-esteem, and transformation to schools, university, and general audiences.
Yep, it’s definitely fishy!
Which is it, Hugo?
Did you resign or did they end ties with you?
I know you read this Tumblr :)
