The truth is, regardless of what the science says about weight and health, the moral argument will always stand: fat people exist, they are in the world, and if human history is any example, they will continue to exist — and therefore, they must be afforded the same rights, access, and dignity that other human beings enjoy. Regardless of their health.

Earth doesn’t have the resources for this. Take flight seating, for example. To give fat people, especially very fat people, the same comfort/room/etc as ‘everyone else’ is prohibitively expensive.

In fact some people are too fat to even fit in an ambulance (look it up), yet it’s hard to argue against ‘everyone has the right to basic medical treatment’. We could build bigger ambos. We could fit them all with crane lifts. But could we afford it?

There is always going to be a line, and wherever it is, someone will be there to complain.

This really helped me understand how to explain to people that reverse -ism’s do not exist. (i.e. reverse-racism)
Thank you YK

We have this idea that university is a place where free thought, progressivism, and debate reign.
Take a gender studies or social justice class and you quickly learn otherwise. You are punished for even starting inquiries, you are ostracized and insulted for not immediately drinking the koolaid, and your opinions integrity are commonly attached to your skin color and gender (yes, I have taken these classes).
It sucks because there are some real serious and meaningful topics covered in them, but at least half of the potential audience will be adversed to them because of the instructors constant shaming and brainwashing tactics.

follow me

"These people are harassing me by existing; be sure to report all of them for being able to click a follow button! HOW DARE THEY!!!"

I will never understand why people like this don’t just make their blogs private. I guess if they were to do that they wouldn’t be able to claim they’re being follow raped by these horrible people that didn’t bother to get consent before following.

automaticwoman:

Before you write another tragic lesbian love story with 2 cis white women consider this:

  • a woman of color in the relationship
  • a trans woman in the relationship
  • a story that’s not tragic
  • a story that doesn’t focus on coming out
  • a story that is not sexualized
  • a story involving dragons
  • a bisexual woman in the relationship 

Before you write a rant directed towards modern authors as an entity, consider getting off of your ass and writing your own book. Be the change you want to see. If you can’t do that, then at least actually deliver your lazy rant to specific authors with the intention of having them receive it and take it seriously. Authors can’t take your suggestion if you don’t actually deliver it to them.

Also, literature is made for profit and if an author thinks that a subject is too uninteresting (“a story that’s not tragic”) or taboo (“a trans woman in the relationship”) for a mainstream audience then it won’t be written.

^^^

Most authors won’t take unsolicited story ideas, though. Not because everyone and their dog offers one the minute they hear that’s what they do (though there’s that.) There’s the legal issue that if they do take someone’s idea and write it and it’s a success, the pleb might come back in a few months with their lawyer, going “You used my idea, give me lots of money!”

That said, there are ghost writers who’ll happily take the job for none of the credit and a decent paycheck.

So I was at the store, and keep in mind it’s almost December, and these shirts were literally the only things on the racks.
Are these supposed to be things people wear out in public or just around their homes? I don’t under what would possess someone to wear something like this around other people.
Also, yes, I know I have an outie.

Is that a flip phone?

"What would posses someone to wear something like this around other people?"
Uhm, probably that same motivation that posses someone to post a picture of themselves in it on the internet for thousand of people to see.
Really girl you can slut shame people for wearing the shirt OR you can take a picture of yourself in it trying to get your elbows to touch. But really though pick one please. 

IS THAT A FLIP PHONE?

They still exist?

What i really want to know is how the hell she got this quality of picture from a flip phone. Somebody lying.

bruh that’s really a flip phone

Considering most of tumblr is 13 year old girls, I’m really not surprised that they have that reaction over a flip phone. When mom ‘n’ dad get you a new smartphone for your birthday, you really don’t think about the price of it.

Shut up! Women are only judged by men. What we’re doing is intellectual analysis of the phone’s association with pre modern time periods and corresponding social mores.

I am so sick of people trying to claim 50 Shades of Grey will not be able to have a negative effect on society because it’s “just a book”. The Bible was just a book. The Communist Manifesto was just a book. Mein Kampf, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1984, The Quran, freaking Harry Potter were all “just books”. If you keep saying literature and media don’t have the potential to change countries, or cultures, or the world, then you’re just deluding yourself.

I’ll admit it’s concerning, not so much because it glorifies an unhealthy abusive relationship but that it glorifies an unhealthy abusive BDSM relationship where most people don’t know any better how BDSM is supposed to work.

But 50 Shades can’t be misogynistic. It was written by a woman. An older, dumpy British woman.

Anonymous asked:

I used to/kinda have a hard time with the concept of fictives, yet somehow one of my OC's has become very clear as an other in whatever this median/plural mess I've got going is. The hard part? He is originally a wildly AU'ed, Omegaverse-ish version of a real person. I'm not sure if he's AU enough to not be considered a fictive, but he's not going anywhere. It's a very strange time to be in my head.

kinfessions answered:

Someone explain to me exactly what that says because it’s clearly not in any language I know.

^^^

AU is presumably “alternate universe”.

Omegaverse…I had to look this one up, and it’s worse than I thought. I’ll let TV Tropes explain it:

"The Sherlock fandom seems to be becoming fond of Omegaverse (an Alternate Universe rampant with male omegas that have the ability to get pregnant due to periodic heats similar to Mate or Die) usually with the fandom’s favourite pairing, Johnlock."

Georgian First Grader Beaten and Sexually Assaulted by Male Classmates…School Says Boys Just “Rough Housing”
Valdosta - Three first grade boys kept a female classmate outside after recess by hiding in the woods, pushing her face first into the ground. The victim, whose name is being withheld, has suffered scarring to the right side of her face from broken tree branches and rocks that she was allegedly assaulted with both physically and sexually.
The victim was able to escape the male classmates after fifteen minutes of torture, running into a fifth grade classroom and alerting a teacher of what had happened. The principle of the elementary school said he had a “man to man” talk with the boys and their parents, giving them two days of suspension. He neglected calling the local authorities claiming “it did not seem like a police matter, just simple rough housing gone a little too far”.
The parents of the victim are looking to press charges on the boys for sexual and physical assault, as well as a possible law suit against the school district. District superintendent was not available for comment. 

This is called rape culture you guys. The girl was 7 years old and they called it “rough housing” between boys.

Please boost this post! People NEED to hear about this.

spread the word

This isn’t true. Please don’t spread this. The girl in the photo was attacked by a kangaroo. Two fucking seconds on google, seriously.

So you’re saying rape culture has spread to kangaroos now? Goddamn that’s some powerful patriarchy.

Extremely, but they finally made a joke that was funny. Unwittingly perhaps, but still…

It’s a bit like the “what’s the difference between milk and white people? If you leave milk alone for 200 years, at least it will develop some cultures of its own”. Offensive, hilarious, and a clear case why Tumblr needs to stop being so oversensitive about stuff.

…you probably don’t know how it is used or its history.

I know a lot of people think it just means straight people and it’s a harmless jab at the privileged but it is not.

It is a biphobic, cissexist, racist and generally awful term.

This comic explains why pretty well.

As you can see…

Some people read way too much into things.
