why are fat people allowed to go on and on about loving how they’re fat but if a skinny person goes on and on about loving how they’re skinny they are vain uh
Ummm….. I think anyone who goes on on about how beautiful they are…
They’re allowed to do it because our culture trains overweight people to feel ashamed and disgusted with themselves. When you’re bombarded everyday with hate over the way you look, damn straight I’m going to respect you if you can still be happy with yourself!
“When women view sexual harassment as bothersome, it doesn’t seem to be associated with distress," said Settles, associate professor of psychology. "In some ways this suggests that sexual harassment is such a widespread problem that women have figured out ways to deal with it so it doesn’t interfere with their psychological well-being.”—Study finds surprising gender differences related to sexual harassment
“I’m not educated. I don’t know what the court laws are. But I know that if I don’t listen to the elders, we would be outcast. None of my daughters could marry, no one would even look at us. If I had known that it would be them who would be punished, not me, then I would have tried to stop it.”
Last weekend I ended up at some random party. Whilst at said party this girl starts talking to me. She’s basically a shorter, more Hispanic looking version of myself. She tells me that she always sees me on campus (okay, normal), loves my style (that’s nice), and that she has always tried to emulate it, but fails.
Even though I had always assumed that I had influenced some girls (mainly the ones who originally came to this school with straight hair, but are now natural) I had never been out right told that I was inspiration (save for one time last year).
I guess it’s nice, but it’s also weird. Especially when it seems to be getting a little “Single [Half] White Female.” My friends are as unique as me, and just because you can’t find versions of them, it’s pathetic to try to jock mine.
