“My whiteness is not the absence of color, white… scientifically speaking is the opposite of the absence of color, it’s all colors.” - Nerdydyke
Why does this remind me of The Dog Days Are Over video from Florence + The Machine where she basically absorbs all the cultures?
You ain’t all the colors like you’re some fucking mixed race of awesome there, whitey.
NerdyDyke, here’s a room full of seats for you.
LMAO i made this argument sarcastically (because i’ve heard it before) a few weeks ago and people were like “ugh no one would say that its not even scientifically accurate”
yet it has happened
But can they ~sing with all the voices of the mountain~??
[TW: trans* violence]That awkward moment when
the professor says we’re all transgender, and everyone agrees.
I mean, I see where he was going, but some of us can walk down the street without any trouble, and some of us walk down the street and get harassed, beaten, and murdered.
BUT WE ALL BLEED RED, RIGHT?!?

What he says (besides the size comment) still rings true though, you do have a responsibility to keep yourself healthy and exercise, regardless of body type. Being skinny or large or average sized does not excuse you from the need to keep active and eat right.
Reblogging from robot-heart-politics, whose comment disappeared when I hit reblog and I still don’t understand tumblr so I’m sorry if this is horrible etiquette. BUT. The gist of rhp’s response was “Although I will say, to whom, exactly, do people have a responsibility to, to keep themselves healthy? I’m just curious.”
And this is exactly my question as well. All this concern-trolling over people’s health is not only transparently false, but also deeply vexing. If it were really about health, I’m nervous because I’ve recently been diagnosed with lupus and I will never be healthy. Why don’t I have a swarm of health patrollers telling my autoimmune system not to attack itself? But it’s not about health at all, is it, because these crusaders don’t lecture everybody the way they lecture people at a certain (arbitrary) size. Health is just a nice-sounding buzz word used to mask policing.
Ron Weasley married Hermione Granger because she makes a nice sandwich.
Seriously? I mean, I love the tumblr I reblogged this from, and I know this is probably supposed to be hilarious and ironic, but I think it’s just misogynistic bullshit. Hermione being reduced to a sandwich-maker? No, thank you.
Eating Right… whatever that means
I’ve seen lots of posts on my dash about eating and judgment, and here’s my two cents, illustrated by a personal anecdote.
I have hypoglycemia. It’s related to diabetes, and it means I struggle to regulate my blood sugar levels. A bagel can be like an Epi pen for me if I start to crash. Sue me!
So last week, my best friend from childhood visited me for a week (and it was awesome!) But she spent the whole weekend making comments like “Bleck, carbs! Ugh, all that sugar!” And I spent the whole weekend reminding her that if she wanted me to remain conscious, this is what I needed to eat.
EATING RIGHT MEANS DIFFERENT THINGS FOR DIFFERENT PEOPLE, DESPITE WHAT COSMO TOLD YOU.
And what really gets my goat is that even if I didn’t have blood sugar issues, SO THE FUCK WHAT. I’m a grown-up, I’m allowed to eat what I want. The end.
“What might that word come to mean?”
