One woman's dating tips, another woman's waste

Can you imagine the furore that would ensue if a man wrote a book, where he listed woman according their race and stereotyped them, I.E Black and Latino woman got big bottoms. 
He would then tell the world that he wrote his book as guide book to help men with their dating dilemmas? 
I know some woman would hunt that man down and God knows what would happen to him. 
Men would ''big him up'' and he would be on every chat show channel and film would be made of him... or I am just too cynical.
Well a women called J.C Davies who is former Wall Street analyst, has released a book, back of her own dating history. 
J.C who has twenty odd years of dating history in Manhattan. J.C believes she has an fascinating insight into cultural differences of men from different ethnic backgrounds and is only written her book so she could share her tips to help woman with their dating life's.
The book is titled I got the fever; has caused a controversy
Cover girl: Author J.C. Davies, pictured on the cover of her book, which examines myths about interracial lovers
 and fierce debate about political correctness.
In the book J.C talks about issues that are taboo in the US.

For example she calls her first black boyfriend a Oreo, because he was an republican who wore suits get it. 
Her poor current middle eastern boyfriend who is Iranian Jew is described having ''terrorist face in bed'' (Oouch)

The book also has sections such as Jungle Fever-AKA Black Men accoring to J.C black men are
- interested in basketball
-Don't like talking about Al Sharpton

Salsa Fever AKA Latino Men According to J.C Latino men are interested in
-Music and dancing (shocker)
-Latino men are also macho and possessive


Yellow fever(not the deadly acute viral haemorrhagic disease) but Asian men.  
In her book J.C says that men from Asia
- are rubbish between the sheets
- they have a tendency to be materialistic, but only because it's an investment, but most admit it’s more for bragging rights or status.


Jewish men who have reputation as cheapskates are in fact according J.C generous
I don't get the big furore about this book, it's book about one woman's dating experience, J.C doesn't seem racist to me she is just sharing her own dating tips with ''hopes'' of helping some dumb woman to find a boyfriend. 
I don't think many woman or girls are going to buy this hopes of finding the one.
J.C didn't date the whole billion half Asians in the world nor has she meet the whole Latino or Black men in the world.
This book will sell well back of the media hype, but it's not going to be another He's just not that into you

Bulimia has become byword these days for most celebrities who yo yo diet. Now and again celebrity tells the world they have suffered Bulimia which is of course an eating disorder which is classified as mental health disorder that effects according to The Beat UK, million people in UK alone. It's an serious disorder that belongs in the same family as anorexia nervosa. Many suffers damage their health and go on to suffer mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks. Bulimia suffers unlike the anorexia suffers, binge on food and drinks then vomit and the cycle usually ends up causing them more harm than good. And suffers of the disease come in all shapes unlike anorexia. Its an disease that affects people of all ages. Of course the cynic in us now days looks at celebrities when they tell the world they have suffered from bulimia with side eye. As most things in world of PR something become byword for headline and few more minutes in the spotlight. That doesn't mean there aren't celebrities who don't suffer from the disease as there are quite a few well known cases from Karen Carpenter to Gilda Radner.
Now days gossips magazines have developed an worrying obsession with women's body shapes. Each week there is a celebrity who has gained or lost weight to be praised or teared down.

Such as Britney and Christina Aguilera. Christina Aguilera have both shown the signs of bulimia
Many stars may coming out of the woodwork and telling the world they suffer from eating disorder, but bulimia or anorexia is never a fashionable thing that stars do but a serious condition with consequences.In 2009 Lily Allen came back with her amazing second studio album and  a new figure. And gone were the prom dresses and trainers. 2009 Lily was sexy and she seemed more confident. 
Lily was sexier on stage not afraid to show little skin. Lily put her new weight loss down to, eating healthy food and exercising. In her new Channel Four documentary with her sister Sarah in which Lily and Sarah try to start vintage shop Lily revealed that her 2009 weight loss was caused by bulimia. 
Lily also admitted that she was unhappy at high of her fame.
Back in 2009 Lily told reporters that“I see someone who is more overweight than I actually am. I honestly think I look like Michelle McManus or something”



  
Lily also showed a flaw in world of fame, when you are skinny magazine covers and campaigns are plenty.
Lily Allen isn't the only singer who has suffered from eating disorder. While some have come clean Lily, Lady Gaga is another singer who has been open about her eating disorder.
