My time has come
So it turns out you can be dyslexic in one language but not another, depending on the kind of linguistic processing problem you have. For example, if you have trouble with phonemes, if can be hard to learn alphabetic writing systems like English, but easier to learn logographic writing systems like Chinese. China has dyslexic people obvs, but they seem to have different stuff going on in their brain than English dyslexic people. Huh.
Buffy breast feeds Cody on Sesame Street (x)This was 1976. Big Bird understood and was wholly accepting and empathetic toward Buffy breastfeeding in public, and Big Bird is meant to be the equivalent of a preschool aged child, but every single day on social media, adults exclaim disgust toward breastfeeding in public and misogyny at the parents who do so. People, you’re less evolved thanBig Bird was 38 years ago. Grow the hell up.
Confession: I’m deeply deeply disgusted and appalled by how many comments and confessions I’ve seen over the past few weeks on various model confession blogs criticizing models like Barbara and Daphne and others for supposedly gaining weight (I honestly don’t see a change in their bodies but okay) and saying that they shouldn’t be doing HF or modeling altogether anymore because they gained weight. The worst part is how these ignoramuses say that models who’ve gained weight are no longer “healthy” as a result of their weight gain. That is so unbelievably ignorant and downright stupid. Your health isn’t always determined by your weight. Your health is determined based on what you eat, how much eat, and how much exercise you get. Gaining weight can be healthy. Get it out of your heads that being skinny = healthy because it’s not. I myself am stick thin, but I’m so unhealthy because I eat way more junk food than healthy food. You can be any size and be healthy or unhealthy. Also, why should they stop working in HF or modeling because of their weight gain? Going from being stick thin to regular thin isn’t gonna make the clothes look bad. Furthermore, the stick thin beauty standard imposed by the fashion industry needs to be challenged and broken down. Stop saying “Well the skinny standard is just how it is. Deal with it”. No. It will continue being “just how it is” as long as models, designers, and consumers accept it and do nothing about it. As long as you keep saying “That’s just how it is”, it will continue being that way and it shouldn’t. You people don’t even realize how much harm you’re doing by calling perfectly thin people “too thick to be a model”. You people are part of the problem. It’s precisely because of people like you that so many young girls have body image problems. Stop the body shaming. I honestly don’t know how any of the people who say such hateful things sleep at night
Finally someone said it thank you!
I like how all of these 11-17 year olds are just going to school with vampires and werewolves and giant spiders and vicious three-headed dogs in their backyard, yet they need a permission slip with an iron-clad parent/guardian signature to go have a harmless butterbeer at the nearby wizarding village.
Okay, Hogwarts. Okay.
It’s officially gone too far now.
