gingerhaze: I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
Great comic on body image.
Just read an article by a guy who decided not to vaccinate his daughter. OMG, I am so ridiculously mad right now. Seriously, I’m just fuming here. I really should have known better than to click on that link.
Such a bullshit article. That guy obviously had no idea how immunology works, let alone basic science. What pissed me off even more were the comments from all those anti-vaccination supporters. Every time someone brings up autism in relation to vaccination, I really just want to punch someone. Falsified study people!
I mean, yes, that is his child, and he should be able to choose what to do with her, but not when he’s putting everyone else around her in danger because he didn’t have her vaccinated. I love how he’s all herd immunity isn’t a real thing, when herd immunity is the reason his daughter is “safe” from these diseases. Can we just exile all anti-vaccination people to their own community? Then they’ll see what happens when herd immunity is no longer there to protect them. Polio, hepatitis, rubella all around.
P.S. I am not linking to the article because I don’t want to spread the link around and perpetrate this ignorance further around the internet. So fucking irresponsible.
Ugh, people who don’t believe in vaccination, global warming, and evolution seriously piss me off so much. Oh, and people who are scared of microwaves, really??? And people who slut-shame. Okay, this is just a downward spiral. I will stop.
