My feminist rants drive all the boys from the yard.

I will always reblog this because it is so so important.
I just want to nail this to every stable surface I can find. I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve seen fat folks being encouraged, cajoled, and even forced into behaviors that would be recognized as disordered eating/exercising patterns in thin folks.
Pretty much everything that’s done on shows like The Biggest Loser would be called out as pro-ana/pro-orthorexia in a thin person. Exercising past the point that it hurts, to the point where you’re throwing up, even injuring yourself? Berating yourself because you didn’t lose ENOUGH weight this week? Constantly talking about how fat is weakness and thinness will make everything better, about how you can’t stand to be your current weight anymore? Emphasis on weight as a sign of how much control, strength, and worth you have? Viewing food as bad, as a temptation to sin? Constant sharing and talking about tips on how to minimize food intake, how to lose weight?
That sounds exactly like every pro-ana/pro-mia blog I’ve ever seen. It’s also what fat people are told we need to be doing to ourselves until we’re thin.
And then you become thin and they ask what caused it.

i try so very hard at college and i have decent grades, but then i see other people who i go to school with who don’t try at all but “it’s ok lol my parents give me money, i can afford to pay to get into uni even if my grades don’t reach the requirements, i don’t even actually need a job right now either “
the more i am at college the more i feel like unless you have money you are fucked, no matter how hard you try or how skilled you are
They lie and tell poor people everything they need to do to not be poor and it’s all crap. =/
a girl once told me that we didn’t need disabled representation in the media because “the media is where we go to forget about our problems”
sorry, I didn’t realize that disabled people are “problems” we need to get away from or “forget” you ableist shit
So apparently dragons/demons running amok, and people being able to use magic is more realistic than bisexual people
Side eying the fuck out of the DA:I team right now.
"Don’t kid yourself" would be a great slogan for birth control pills
do you ever just want to gently place your hands on someones cheeks and hold their head there in your hands and looking into their eyes and then violently jerk their head on a right angle and snap their neck
Well, that took an unexpected turn.
so did their neck
So are they
