honestly saying “youre a twig lets get some meat on those bones” is just as offensive and embarrassing as “youre fat, watch what you eat” may not seem like it but trust me
It really super sucks, yes. And I mean obviously there are measurable privileges associated with being thin that are not associated with being fat, and the experience of being one is not equal to the experience of being the other. These are things that should totally be talked about. But that doesn’t excuse body-shaming and food-shaming behavior towards ANYONE. And “genuine concern” and “just joking” and even “envy” (I’m sort of passive aggressively referencing a certain post and I’m sorry but it was super upsetting and it has made self-image really hard since I saw it) are shitty reasons to comment on a person’s food intake or appearance, regardless of what that appearance may be.
Just lay off. Don’t tell people what to eat or not eat, or that they “look unhealthy” to you. Unless you are a doctor who is specifically being paid to comment on those things for that specific person, it’s none of your business, and you might very well be doing more damage than you can even see.
OH MY GOD STOP SAYING THAT DOCTORS SHOULDN’T SAY ‘IT’S A BOY’ OR ‘IT’S A GIRL’ AT BIRTH
IT’S NOT ABOUT ‘FORCING GENDER ROLES ON BABIES’ IT’S ABOUT ENSURING THAT THE CHILD GETS THE BEST CARE POSSIBLE BASED ON THEIR BIOLOGICAL SEX JFC
anyways what else would they say if they can’t announce boy or girl.
"it’s a thing!"
yeah that’s not gonna work.
"It sure is a baby alright"
how is it this hard for people to imagine describing a small human being with anything but gendered terms cis people are amazing
What the HELL does it even MEAN to care for a child based on its biological sex??
A) no one’s even checking all of the biological markers for sex usually, just the baby junk, and B) There aren’t really any mention-worthy differences between caring for a healthy penis vs. caring for a healthy vagina!!
strong contender for the best shirt I’ve ever owned
I can’t find any videos where she says her own name! The reporter pronounced it like “Ahn-DRAY-uh” (so like my initial reading but minus the spanish ‘j’) but he also had a very different accent from Andreja’s so who knows if he’s saying it right??
It”s super exciting to see Andreja Pejic in the news and on tumblr and facebook, it’s so exciting.
I keep reading her first name as though it’s spanish because I don’t know what the hell else to do with that j and it throws me off every single time. Who is Ahn-DRAY-ha?? Nobody knows!!
….Unless that IS how it’s pronounced? Can somebody help me out with this?

TUMBLR USERS I WOULD SUPER APPRECIATE SOME FEEDBACK
Ok, I posted earlier requesting some input on an all-inclusive definition of sexual consent, and I didn’t receive any feedback. I’m hoping that will be different this time around, because this definition is literally the foundation for this entire… well it’s basically shaping into a short book.
Here’s what I have so far:
Sexual Consent is an enthusiastic “yes” given on an ongoing basis by someone who would otherwise be completely able to say “no.”
A person must be conscious, over the age of consent, sober, mentally autonomous and self-expressive, and unpressured* in order to give viable consent.
*apparently unpressured is not a word, so if anyone happens to have an alternative suggestion, please let me know, but that’s secondary to my main questions:
IN YOUR OPINION:
- Is the phrasing “mentally autonomous and self-expressive” clear enough?
- Does that phrasing clarify the need to respect that SOME mental disabilities prevent a person from being able to give consent?
- Does it do this without lumping all mental disabilities into one group or making a broad generalization about what ~”the mentally disabled”~ can and cannot do?
I have been having the worst insomnia lately. Last night I designed an entire house. Complete with detailed backyard pool and garden. Like. I drew out rows of tomatoes and shit. And I still couldn’t sleep so I designed a family to live in it. I figured if I just made them up with the lights out lying in bed instead of drawing them (like I did with the house) I might actually bore myself to sleep but au contraire mon frère, (I don’t know what a frere is but I really hope I’m not calling you something rude) I get totally invested in their lives and back stories and now I DOUBLE can’t sleep because WHAT IF LITTLE TIMONE (they’re all named after 90’s disney cartoon animal sidekicks (with one inanimate-made-magically-animate object sidekick exception (Chip (the teacup from Beauty and the Beast))) HAS TO HAVE THAT FOOT AMPUTATED?? Djali would be so upset. How would they do that tap dance routine they’ve been working on together for the school talent show since Djali’s heart-to-heart with Mrs. Terk (the English teacher (who is loosely based on Mrs. Hale (my third grade science teacher with whom I had a heart-to-heart of my own at a Crucial Time in my Educational Life (who always reminded me a little of Rosie O’Donnell (hence the namesake))))… way back in November????
……CRAP is that the time??
