ATTENTION: SIGNAL BOOST THE SHIT OUT OF THIS RIGHT NOW. THIS IS NOT OK I HAVE FOUR DOGS AND I WOULD KILL THE BASTARD WHO TRIES TO HARM THEM OR ANY OTHER ANIMAL. SIGNAL BOOST PLEASE.
If I ever find the guy that made this, I PROMISE THAT I WILL HURT THEM IN THE SAME WAY AS THEY HURT THE DOGS!
If i found this person i would hit them with whatever vehicle I was driving without a second thought
OMG THIS IS SO AWFUL
My dog Thor (who lives with my parents) is a APBT mix (American Pit Bull Terrier; yes, Pits are considered TERRIERS, just like Jack Russells), and he is the sweetest most wonderful baby you could ever meet. He has NEVER hurt me, my husband, my parents, our friends, other animals (he’s lived with cats, other dogs, and ferrets), OR OUR YOUNG CHILDREN. We got him when my oldest son was two and a half (2006), and lived with us through pregnancy and birth #2 in 2009, right up until we moved into a no-dog apartment in 2011, when my parents took him in. My boy doesn’t deserve to die just because of his breed.
GOOD NEWS! This is a HOAX. Snopes.com debunked this. Still. It’s a pretty sick joke.
Still think fat discrimination isn’t a huge problem? Still think it’s not up there with sexism and racism? Still think that fat people don’t get abused all the fucking time? I am so fucking sick of not being able to exist in my own body. I am so sick of getting stares and laughs and name-called, and having my picture taken just for leaving the house and going to places like Walmart or a restaurant. How dare I, a fat person go shopping with my also fat husband. How dare I eat a sandwich, or any food at all. Or in tonight’s case; how dare I ride my bicycle in public.
A car full of men thought it would be funny to call out “Hey Fatty!” before literally swerving in my direction and nearly hitting me. I panicked and tried to swerve out of the way, and ended up skidding across the pavement. They laughed hard as they drove away. Do you think this is fucking funny?? Those pictures are from when the wounds were fresh. I am now even more red and bruised. The whole right side of my face is swollen and it hurts to open my eye. This is so funny. I am fat, so this is what I deserve right? I am so fucking tired of society seeing fat people as non-human. I usually let it go and move on, laugh even, at how small-minded people are…but today I am really hurt. Physically hurt. And so tired. These wounds are what fat people receive daily, you just can’t always see them.
THESE WOUNDS ARE WHAT FAT PEOPLE RECEIVE DAILY, YOU JUST CAN’T ALWAYS SEE THEM.
And even if we don’t get the stares and snickers, we are constantly “hearing” the internal monologue of everyone around us, our own insecurities and internal criticism developed through years of receiving these wounds, echoing in our minds in the voices of others; “Oh my god look at her, she jiggles when she walks. That’s so fucking disgusting!” “Haha look at fatty and his porky wife, how do they even have sex? Oh gross I’m gonna vomit just thinking that!”
But, even if you’re not fat, if you’re a woman, you’re probably still so caught up with your toxic weight shit that you can’t even see straight. During my working life I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been part of these ridiculous workplace group diets. Almost all of the participants have been women. Sometimes they even try to bribe one another with money. They all put in ten dollars on the first week and whoever loses the most wins the pool at the end of 4 months, or whatever it is. Look, I’m like you. I’ve done it too. And at a perfectly normal, healthy weight I’ve done it. All because of a sick, shitful, ugly little voice in the back of my head that tells me I ought to be smaller.
And that’s the rub, right there. Exactly why do we want to be smaller? What exactly is the appeal of being smaller? How does it benefit us? Does it make us better mothers? Better students? Better lovers? Better artists? Scientists? Friends? Does it make us more badass badasses?
No, no, no, no, no. You must see that it doesn’t. It doesn’t do anything but make us smaller.
Babies and puppies are small. So are dimes and Skittles. You’re a fucking woman. A woman! You are entitled to occupy as much fucking space as you like with your awesomeness, and you better be suspicious as fuck of anybody who tells you differently.
Why, ladies? Why must we continue to whittle ourselves down? Who is it for? What is it for? You can walk through a certain aisle at the pharmacy or at the grocery store and see the language of diminishment all over the packaging for weight loss aids of all kinds. “Shrink your waist.” “Lose inches off your thighs.” “Slim down.” “Get skinny.”
How about “Grow your mind.” “Increase your confidence and productivity.” “Beef up your knowledge.” “Enlarge your scope of asskicking.”
That’s a valid message for women and girls: grow, expand, branch out, open up, get bigger, wider, faster, stronger, better, smarter. Go up not down. Get strong, not skinny.
You are not here to get smaller. You are not here to have a thin waist and thighs. You are not here to disappear. You’re here to change the world! Change the fucking world, then! Forget about “losing a few pounds.” Think about what you could be gaining instead.
Love the bottom left one!
Ok, seriously freyjasgarden, I sent you a private Ask on this and you ignored it. Stop reposting instead of reblogging. Someone worked damn hard on this makeup art, and by reposting you have removed their due credit and negated all the time and attention and effort they put into it. How would you feel if someone copy-pasted one of your writings into a new text post, without crediting you as the original author? This. Is. The. Same. Thing. Hitting the reblog button takes mere seconds and maintains due credit and artistic integrity. Downloading the image and then re-uploading for a new post, as you have done with nearly all of the posts on your blog, is far more time consuming and flat out disrespectful.
Let’s clear up a few misconceptions about crisis counselors, psychiatrists and psychologists.
Sure there are some who are closed minded jerks, but the law prevents them from committing anyone to involuntary confinement unless they present an immediate threat to themselves or…
Please, don’t reblog any photos of Dan and Pana that were posted by annmak. They’re all stolen from their private Facebook accounts :/
PLEASE DO NOT REBLOG THIS PERSONS STOLEN PICS »>PANA IS REALLY PISSED AT WHAT THIS PERSON IS DOING AND WE WILL BE REPORTING IT TO TUMBLR »>THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP KIDS xoxo
“Merida was the princess that countless girls and their parents were waiting for — a strong, confident, self-rescuing princess ready to set off on her next adventure with her bow at the ready. She was a princess who looked like a real girl, complete with the ‘imperfections’ that all people have.
The redesign of Merida in advance of her official induction to the Disney Princess collection does a tremendous disservice to the millions of children for whom Merida is an empowering role model who speaks to girls’ capacity to be change agents in the world rather than just trophies to be admired. Moreover, by making her skinnier, sexier and more mature in appearance, you are sending a message to girls that the original, realistic, teenage-appearing version of Merida is inferior; that for girls and women to have value — to be recognized as true princesses — they must conform to a narrow definition of beauty.”
-Petition: Disney, say no to the Merida make over @ change.org (x)
I.e. the creepy “price” Merida has to pay in order to be crowned as a “Disney princess”. (Because she’s already a princess but apparently that doesn’t meet the Disney standards or something.)
I was in Disney World in Feburary, they had Merida out and EVERYONE adored her. I saw so many little girls that wanted to be her.
