"What’s your favorite thing about her?"
"What’s a time that she really impressed you with her intelligence?"
"Every single day. She’s the CFO of my company."
I am allowed to exist.
No matter my size, no matter my health. I am allowed to exist and I should be able to do so without persecution.
i feel like all joffrey needed was to get turned into a llama for a while
This is fake. They haven’t been sat on that rock for 50 years. If you look closely you can clearly see her swimsuit is different in the second photo, it has stripes on it. And the guy’s shorts seem to have a more floral pattern in the latter photo.Also, if someone sat on a rock for 50 years, it would have made the news. My theory is, they simply returned to the same location 50 years later, and recreated the original photo.
Anonymous asked: My girlfriend considers herself "overweight", meaning it makes her unattractive. I told her that such thing was not possible,she's about your size and so so beautiful. Do you have an advice on how I could prove to her size does not effect her beautiful beautiful body and her beauty in general?
I don’t think that’s something you can do.
Be there for her. Reinforce that she’s lovely exactly as she is. Remind her that there are as many ways to be beautiful as there are creatures on this earth. Remind her that beauty doesn’t correlate with her worth as a human being. Tell her she’s gorgeous. Tell her about all the other wonderful things she is. Support her. Point her towards resources such as the body positive community that deconstruct beauty norms and celebrate bodies of all kinds.
But ultimately I think it has to come from her. As her significant other you are not there to validate her and she’s entitled to her pain. I sincerely think it’s damaging to think of yourself as beautiful because and only because the person you’re dating thinks you are. Not that that can’t be an affirming experience—most people appreciate, I think, having the person they love being attracted to them. But we’ve gotta love our own selves for what we are, not for what we can give to other people.
NEW RULES TO ADDRESSING ME AS A FAT PERSON
1. FOOD: If you want to come at me about “how much I eat”, you need to provide an exact food diary of everything I ate in the past week, (not just what it was, but how much and when). Then you also need to provide at least 36 examples of thin people eating the same amounts/foods, and write a 10 page paper on why you don’t attack them, only me, and then provide 8 medically accurate and unbiased documents proving without a SHRED of doubt that these thin people eating the same amounts/things are as healthy/healthier than me.
2. HEALTH: if you want to come at me about my health/that I’m going to die, you need to provide me with full professional doctors papers, PhD and all, as well as MY individual health records, and at least 12 UNBIASED research papers done by reputable doctors (dr. phil does not count)
3. APPEARANCE: If you want to come at me about how I look to you, I am going to need a minimum of 245 photos of you, from all angles, with/without make up/beards/whatever, and you’re going to need to explain in a 12 page paper, single space, size 8 font, what it is about YOU and YOUR LOOKS that gives you the right to judge anyone else. Remember, I said looks only. I don’t give a flying fuck if you once helped someone move to a new apartment, this isn’t about nicest personality, this is about looks as you made it clear in attacking me for it.
Finally, and this is the most important rule of all,
4. WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THESE PAPERS, PHOTOS, AND FOOD DIARIES?
I need you to follow the below diagram, before ever coming to me with any of the above
Thank you. Have a nice day.
Laverne Cox may not have made the Time100 (despite ending up in the top 10 on the reader poll), but fear not: Co-writer of “Blurred Lines”, Pharrel Williams certainly did!

Note to followers:
don’t shut up
do the exact opposite of shutting up
Okay but seriously, thank you. Despite the massive (and justified) backlash against Robin Thicke for “Blurred Lines” it really stumped me why Pharrel (who co-wrote and performed the song, was even in the video) came out completely unscathed. At least I’m not the only person to think it’s odd.
- Friend: go ask
- Me: no you go ask
- Friend: no you
- Me: fine can i have ketchup
it started out as a kiss
how it did it end up like this
It was only a kiss
IT WAS ONLY A KISS
the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
