But then, the truth was never really the point. Thin women don’t tell their fat friends ‘You’re not fat’ because they’re confused about the dictionary definition of the word, or their eyes are broken, or they were raised on planets where size 24 is the average for women. They don’t say it because it’s the truth. They say it because fat does not mean just fat in this culture. It can also mean any or all of the following:

Ugly
Unhealthy
Smelly
Lazy
Ignorant
Undisciplined
Unlovable
Burdensome
Embarrassing
Unfashionable
Mean
Angry
Socially inept
Just plain icky

So when they say ‘You’re not fat,’ what they really mean is ‘You’re not a dozen nasty things I associate with the word fat.’ The size of your body is not what’s in question; a tape measure or a mirror could solve that dispute. What’s in question is your goodness, your lovability, your intelligence, your kindness, your attractiveness. And your friends, not surprisingly, are inclined to believe you get high marks in all those categories. Ergo, you couldn’t possibly be fat.

another example of thin privilege, your body type doesn’t carry these negative synonyms

Boy howdy it sure is frustrating when I say “It’s hard for me to find cool clothes on the rack in sizes that fit me” and my very slim friends say “Oh shut up it is not” It’s like, Wow, that is fascinating, I had no idea you had more experience shopping for my body than I do! Like, all these negative terms are so intrinsically associated with heavyset bodies that my small friends tell me I’m wrong when I say it’s difficult shopping in trendy boutiques where 80% of the stuff on the racks in a size 4, because they get the idea that that pretending I have the ability to squeeze into tiny clothes for tiny people will make me feel better about myself.

this is actually something i’ve tried to convey to a friend with body image issues but i haven’t been able to put it in words so well. this is so true.

I’m certain the Vulcans were like “We get that you’re half human, so you can keep ONE emotional/human response and you can use it as much as you like.”

And Spock was like “Sass.”

i hope chris pratt destroys the idea that you’re not at your happiest or full potential until you’re thin or fit. he got fit and was like ‘it’s terrible never do it’ like he can’t wait to be chubby again

THIS IS ACTUALLY PROBABLY MY FAVORITE PICTURE FROM THE ENTIRE OTAKON WEEKEND.

I met this adorable Lissa cosplayer (who unfortunately doesn’t have a tumblr) at one of the shoots and she asked me for a hug. Of course I obliged, because Owain loves his mom, and my friend happened to snap a picture of it at the perfect time.

EDIT: Lissa got a tumblr! You can find her here!

If you’ll be my star
I’ll be your sky
You can hide underneath me and come out at night
When I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

THE BEST FEELINGS IN THE WORLD.

  • HOT SHOWERS.
  • THE FIRST BITE OF A MEAL WHEN YOU ARE REALLY HUNGRY.
  • TIGHT HUGS.
  • CRAWLING INTO BED AFTER A LONG DAY.
  • FOREHEAD KISSES.
  • WAKING UP IN THE MORNING AND ACTUALLY FEELING LIKE YOU HAD ENOUGH SLEEP.
