I was put on this earth to annoy the living fuck out of everyone around me about animal rights. And I’m succeeding.
Earth Day / ərTH dā /
(n.) an annual day set aside for a bunch of otherwise apathetic humans to regurgitate “green” slogans like “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!” and pat themselves on the back for being such good little environmentalists, while continuing to consume factory farmed animal products and consequentially sustain the #1 known source of greenhouse gas emissions, thus worsening global climate change, while all the vegans internally scream.
YES, there are people who find cultural appropriation and the use of slurs “ok” with them.
Does that mean it’s “ok” to do it to EVERYONE, even if they might be personally offended by it?
Also it is very important to realize that your irl friends saying this shit is ok may be out of a desire to not start drama and get into arguments. I fucking detest when straight people say faggot but I have a few straight friends who do and it is just not worth the shit to tell them to stop.
I want to show my fucker of a stepdad that I’m not a freak.
Can’t argue with this. There are also romantic friendships, which are not sexualized, but represent deep intimacy.
so as a refresher, this genderfluid queer and their furry offspring are homeless due to a breakup.
y’all donated enough money for the deposit, for which I am extremely grateful, but the apartment manager is getting iffy about me not…
The reality is that fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in starving themselves, in engaging in unsafe exercise, and in seeking out weight loss by any means necessary. A thin person who does these things is considered mentally ill. A fat person who does these things is redeemed by them. This is why our culture has no concept of a fat person who also has an eating disorder. If you’re fat, it’s not an eating disorder — it’s a lifestyle change.

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.
I’VE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR A LONG TIME THAT EATING DISORDERS AND SELF-HARM AND SELF-HATE ARE ENCOURAGED IN FAT PEOPLE.
Ugh this is beyond depressing. :(
A couple makeup sponges, lots of green eyeshadow, and an Emilie Autumn album later…
