no, her body is not beautiful. her body is not beautiful because she is not healthy. it’s blatantly obvious that she’s an anorexic, and there is nothing beautiful about that. there is absolutely nothing beautiful about a girl being so uncomfortable with her body that she starves herself and/or binges and vomits. this is one thing i will never completely understand. i don’t understand why all you girls are so stuck on being so unattractively skinny. you are you. and there are people out there that do and will accept you for that, always. every single one of you are beautiful just the way you are, and there’s no reason to try and change that.
Whoah whoah whoah!!!!! Who the fuck made YOU the one who decides who is and isnt beautiful?!
Did you stop for even one second to consider the fact that maybe the person who’s photo that is might see your little rant? Do you have ANY idea how damaging it would be to see you calling them ugly? Congrats, you may have pushed this person over the edge in the name of empowering someone else.
Here’s the deal: It is NOT empowering to put down some one else in order to make yourself feel good. That’s disgusting.
If you dont understand, keep your fucking mouth shut about it with your fucked up condemnations and bullshit judgements. No one needs that.
So we’re all beautiful, except people who are SICK? Fuck them, right? Since you dont get it, it’s cool to talk shit about them, make them feel worse about who they are and what they suffer with?
every thing you just said was possibly the most ignorant thing i’ve ever read. and do you, for one second, think that this person would have posted this thinking that no one would say anything about it? it’s the fucking internet.
and fuck the sick people? don’t put something like that in my mouth. you’re turning this into something completely irrelevant to what i said.
ha, i don’t even know what to say to you.
Oh yes, calling you out for talking shit about someone you know NOTHING about is so ignorant. How dare I say that insulting someone’s body is a shit thing to do.
Are you serious? What you did was hurtful. Yeah, this person posted it on the net, but that doesnt give you the right to tear them down to make yourself or someone else feel better.
You do not know this person. You do not know their mental status, their health, or their story. You have no business saying they have an ED, or are unhealthy.
And you really have NO business at all calling them ugly. Never. Ever. No one has the right to police another person’s body for the sake of their own ego.
It really is as simple as being respectful of other people.
Why are so many people online having trouble with this today?!
Clearly this idiot has never been accused of suffering from an ED because of their body type. I have. It sucks. I am a slight woman. Skinny, even. And I’m not ugly. My low weight is due to a number of reasons that include the occasional horrendous period of nausea due to health problems. You have no idea why this woman is at her current weight. Furthermore, it’s none of your business. Even if she is anorexic, her illness does not make her ugly and it’s ableist to suggest otherwise, just as it is equally ableist for anyone to reach that conclusion about an individual with a blood disorder like mine.

A stone's throw away from a rock fight...: I've Decided there is a "Feminist Privilege" →
Women who are offended by cat-calls are privileged because they’re “hot”.
They get male attention that less attractive women don’t.
So they want to ban cat-calls all together.
I used to get cat-called in eighth grade. This wasn’t because I was “hot”,…
But “pretty privilege” has its drawbacks too. If you are conventionally attractive, you’d damn well better not admit it, because then you’re just arrogant. Or a slut. Or both. People who are widely considered “cute” are also often patronized. And if you show evidence of a brain? Freak of nature. There’s no way to win, I think, no matter what one looks like.
I saw your messages just now. You were amazing, and so much more grown up about it than I could have been. /standing ovation for Sarah!
Her attitude was really icky at the end there. I wont talk shit about WFC. It's a good idea, and people should def. march and protest and demand their rights be kept. But I wont be associating with them anymore as long as RG is the leader. And I think thats one of my biggest problems with the whole thing: there is A leader. Just one. I like organizing with a lot of people, using consensus and making sure every angle is covered to the best of our abilities. People need a chance to voice their concerns when putting together something like this, and with her there really is NO room for compromise. It's her way or not at all and you cant do that. You end up erasing people and alienating them.
I cant believe she said PP could fuck off because a couple of offices gave organizers shit. When we were putting together the first WFC, PP was finding out their budget was about to get slashed to almost non existent. We were very lucky Nikki and Stephanie were able to take time from work to help us. And it sucks some people got shit, but how stressed were the PP staffers they were talking to? It's whatever at this point. We got this.
Thanks for the message :) I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt but I had no idea she’d been so controlling about the February event. That’s really appalling and I actually believe it’s impossible to launch a truly successful movement with that level of micromanagement. A.) You’ll burn out, B.) it’s just fucking arrogant and C.) people need to feel like they’re equal participants in the movement or guess what? Organizers stop returning your calls! Which is what happened! Imagine that! /rant. So here’s to creating our own inclusive event. I won’t be able to make it to Take Back the Night today but I will be in town for FOCO Lobby Day and if you want to have an organizing meeting I can see about getting a ride. Weekends are best for me, since I work at a preschool.
Yesterday an estimated 4,000 people marched in my lovely city of Toronto’s Slut Walk.
For those of you who are not familiar with the slut walk it was organized in response to a Toronto police officer saying that women should avoid dressing like “a slut” in order to avoid being raped. Although I couldn’t make it to the walk myself, I’m so happy and proud that so many of my fellow Torontonian’s did. Great work guys, I hope this becomes an annual event!
I’ve seen Slut Walks spread themselves around the globe in the past few weeks. The “spread” pun entirely intended. With love.
I can’t believe someone said that.
I would like to get one organized here, but TBTN is in a couple of weeks and it’s kinda the same (maybe?).
Maybe in May?
Anyone else from Ohio interested in starting planning for one?
We could put something up on the Tumblr and the Ohioans for Reproductive Rights group on FB.
Ohioans for Choice: An idea →
I mentioned this on the facebook page but I thought I would throw it out there on here.
Today driving up High St I saw some pro-ubion people standing on the sidewalk infront of the Statehouse with signs protesting SB5 (that passed…so many snarls for that, but anyways).
I think, instead of…
I like this idea. Also I like the idea of demonstrating in front of the local news media outlets, like the Columbus Dispatch.
I Am Blinded but I've Seen Beyond: Bisexuality... →
People who are bisexual will sooner or later realize that they truly only have one preference whether it means for them to find out if they are gay or simply straight and were curious and living the life.
I agree with this conclusion simply because it’s true.
But hey, I may be wrong.
Fuck you. You don’t get to erase my sexual identity.
This is why I’m walking tomorrow.
Because Ohio Republicans are attempting to pass a bill that will forbid terminations even to save a woman’s life if the fetus has acquired a heartbeat.
Because the House GOP thinks it has the right to redefine rape, as if some rapes count more than others; and because they are striving to strip funding away from an organization that provides thousands of men and women with necessary health care.
Because there’s a Republican in Georgia who wants to investigate your miscarriage as a potential crime scene, and because Republicans in Iowa and Nebraska that want to legalize the use of deadly force in defense of a fetus.
I am going to walk in Columbus tomorrow, come hell, high water, or another hospital visit. I am going to walk if it’s snowing, if it’s raining, if it’s sleeting. And I will raise my voice and my fist because I believe that women deserve the right to make our own medical decisions. I will be there because these bills are not really about the sanctity of life. How can they be, when they clearly could care less about the lives of women? I will be there because I believe my body has value, and so does my mind, and I have an unalienable right to protect myself from harm.
My worth is not less than that of a fetus.
All rape is forcible rape.
Miscarriages are private tragedies.
And even if you believe abortion really is murder, committing more murder really does nothing to prove your point.
If you agree: noon, Wexner Center Plaza. We’ll march to the Statehouse and we will show Republicans that we will not be so easily silenced.
