Make sure to reblog as many non-white and/or non-cis and/or fat people with generic “OMG, SO BEAUTIFUL” comments, so it doesn’t look bad when you inevitably go on a fapping spree over some white guy from your newest fandom.
Oof, the stab of self-recognition. This is one of those things you worry about doing subconsciously…I try to work against it but as an act of self-care and kindness I also try not to castigate myself too harshly for internalized colonialism. Like everyone I’m sure I fail sometimes at maintaining a balance between the two extremes, but I do try.
I’m telling you all right now that ehsakti is the most perfect online shop in the world. you can customize so much about each garment, there is always some sort of discount code floating around or online promotion and the quality of each piece is amazing!! every dang garment is offered in a size 0-6x as well AND you can get it customized to your measurements if you want
The only downside is you’re stuck getting DAILY emails forever where they throw deals at you but it’s a small price to pay. BEST dressmaker available on the web in my opinion. There are some etsy shop gems out there but they’re far too rich for my blood.
(Speaking of price, I’m not sure about the ~ethicality~ of their clothing and would love to hear from anyone that knows more but based on the price point and the fact that you order and get the garments direct from India without a huge corporate middleman I kinda get the feeling that they’re at least no worse ethically than your typical fast fashion. And just between you and me and the wall, as a fatty it’s too tough finding decent clothing to always shop with one’s conscience. I think it’s important to at least be mindful of the privilege involved in “disposable” “cheap” fashion as well, though.)
He’s talking about Michelle’s new bangs, and Django Unchained, and sharing the road with cyclists, and Joe Biden…It’s something else. I am sorry that he has resorted to violence against innocent people in his grievances against LAPD and I’m sorry that he doesn’t expect to survive this incident but I hope if he is innocent of the accusations that drove him to violence that his name is cleared, and I hope no one else gets hurt, and my sympathy goes out to the families of his shooting victims.
Note, he also referenced “misandrist authority” and a “visibly disgusting” woman, and his first victim was a young woman who was the DAUGHTER of someone he had beef with so his actions are steeped in violent misogyny. I’m not excusing that or his violence but I’m sorry that a clearly thoughtful young man who volunteered to serve his country experienced racism and oppression to such a degree that he felt driven to kill. I wish for you to find peace, Chris Dorner.
If I ever thought Fat Acceptance was good at intersectionality I must have been blinded by my own privilege.
Forever super jealous of people who have the privilege to be able to write openly and honestly about their experiences without worrying about how connecting your name to your stories will potentially negatively affect your employments situations in the future.
No shit. I got blocked by @JennPozner as a troll on twitter once for calling her out on some seemingly fucked up language and she came at me with some shit about needing to use one’s real name to be taken seriously. Like, sorry that we can’t all be post-grad ~expert feminists~ and excuse me if I’m not into outing my racial or sexual identity to every single person on the planet. This was literally the same week someone had been fired from the Library of Congress for a FB like so it’s not as if it’s a hypothetical.
