Are you doing that anorexia thing?

Posted: October 11, 2010 by Jender in Uncategorized

As I walked in to the philosophy department one day during my second year of graduate school I stopped to chat with a very senior male professor. While we were chatting he leaned back, checked out my rear-end, and asked, “You’re not doing that anorexia thing are you?” In a state of shock and confusion I answered, “No, I’m recovering from meningitis.” He replied, “Good, …, good…” and walked away.

Still not sure what to think about that one… (And yes I really was recovering from meningitis and had lost a lot of weight in my fight for my life.)

(This took place about 5 years ago.)
