THERE IS SOMETHING VERY WRONG WITH THE GENERAL MALE MENTALITY WHEN I, AS A MALE WITH MANY FEMALE FRIENDS, HAVE TO FREQUENTLY PRETEND TO BE MY FRIENDS’ BOYFRIEND SIMPLY SO OTHER DUDES WON’T BE CREEPY AND FUCKING GROPE THEM

THERE IS SOMETHING VERY WRONG WITH THE GENERAL MALE MENTALITY WHEN THEY RESPECT COMPETITION MORE THAN THE ACTUAL PERSON THEY’RE TRYING TO GET WITH

whenever i see a post about someone wondering how an  asexual and a sexual can be in a healthy relationship there’s always someone being applauded for saying well asexuals can have sex too or just because someone’s asexual doesn’t mean they won’t have sex but i have never, not once, EVER seen someone say well hey, some sexuals don’t have sex. you can have a full relationship without sex. just throwing it out there

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

This is gorgeous.

Yo...you seriously think being obese is healthy? and no health issues are connected with being obese? Let me get my popcorn.. I wanna hear this explanation

Get your popcorn then go to google and find it for you damn self. The information is out there. There are “obese” Olympians but you wouldn’t know that because you refuse to accept that some people just are obese and healthy. 

I think people need to check THEIR definition of healthy; because I think they are getting it confused with THEIR definition of aesthetically pleasing. Average blood pressure, average heart function, average lung capacity, average blood sugar, average and below cholesterol… all of these things are attainable for obese people as well as smaller/skinny people. High blood pressure, below normal heart function, poor lung capacity, high blood sugar, and high cholesterol are all VERY MUCH SO things that smaller/skinny people can have.

So, as most folks on Tumblr are not registered physicians (myself included) and have never met/tested the subjects of their ridicule, automatically assuming that a skinny person is healthy and that an obese person is unhealthy an admittance to idiocy at best and dangerous at worst.

But whatevs. I’ll just be over here… minding my own business and worried only about my own health, not complete strangers.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Right before my ED started, I was definitely what people consider a “healthy” weight as well as an “aesthetically pleasing” weight (to a degree) and my cholesterol was sky high and my blood sugar was probably through the roof. I definitely know a lot of fat people that are healthier than me now as well, even disregarding the ED.

Please tell how you can't be a feminist and a racist at the same time

euo:

If you’re racist towards people of color and claim to want gender equality you are excluding women of color from your values. Which means you want equality for white women. That’s not feminism. That’s racism. End of story.
