to all y’all graduating, finishing a semester, thinking about starting school, leaving school, looking for a job, working, resting, improving, or trying every day to do whatever you can to be the person you want to be… I’m so proud of you, and I hope you are proud of yourself. it hasn’t been easy, but here you are, and you’re doing so good. I love you, keep it up, I know you can do this
What makes you think that this person is just starting?
Why can’t a larger body be seen as inspirational without implying that they’re a beginner, just starting out, or are trying to change themselves?
Typically fat people don’t work out

So you wanna rethink that rancid embarrassment of a post?
Also it’s creepy, dehumanizing and objectifying to post a fat woman’s body with her head cropped out to use as your fitspo.
people love chopping fat bodies into pieces for their thinspo/fitspo in order to further dehumanize and “other” us
we aren’t people to them; we’re decapitated before shots with a warning label slapped where our humanity should be
I dont think I ever wrote about this.
When I took Chloe in for her physical the doctor had her get down to her underwear and the doctor checked her out and then said “I am just going to take a quick peek in your underwear to make sure everything is okay down there” and Chloe said “momma you said no one can look at my privates unless I tell them its okay and I dont ant her to look at them because I dont know her very well.” I told her that it was her choice to have the doctor look or not but that I was right here and I would be sure the doctor did not do anything that was not okay, but if Chloe did not want her to look she didnt have to let her. She looked at the doctor and said very matter of factly “I dont want you looking in my underwear, there is nothing wrong with my private parts, and I dont know you very well” The doctor looked at Chloe and told her that she had the right to say no and that she wouldn’t force her to let her look. She asked her questions about it, like does it itch, does it hurt when you pee and Chloe answered them and then started getting dressed. The doctor pulled me aside and told me that she was a sexual assualt survivor and that she is so proud of my daughter for telling her no, even though she was a person of authority.
I have always and will always teach my children they control their body, even and especially when it comes to people of authority.
I love this.
I keep thinking how much more powerful the Spiderman origin story would be if Peter Parker was an African American kid, whose Uncle Ben was shot by police while being arrested for a minor parking infraction. There is no formal investigation, and Peter decides to put himself on the line to prevent it happening again. He tackles the white crimes that go unpunished, punishes POC criminals fairly. He is the leveler, always fighting to be without bias, to be just. To protect people like his uncle.
This not only mirrors so much of what’s happening in America, but feeds right into the complex relationship between Spiderman, the authorities and the media.
Peter Parker is a brilliant student, awkward, a nerd, but is branded a thug, a gang member, a criminal, because of his appearance. The media latch on to that and misrepresent him totally.
The police, humilitated by the fact that he refuses to work with them and often punishes cops themselves for brutalizing innocent people, or guilty people who still deserve better treatment than they get, attempt to hunt him down.
“I want to be a wildlife biologist. I really, really, really like animals. I like that lizards have really long tongues, and cheetahs can run really fast, and armadillos have hard shells. I spend a lot of time thinking about what it would be like to not be a human. Like what would it be like to fly? It would also be interesting to not have to go shopping for food, or worry about money. And you could go anywhere you want as long as there weren’t predators nearby. One time my dad brought me some quills from an African Crested Porcupine, and I accidentally broke one of them, and I saw that even though it was hard on the outside, it was soft and spongy on the inside. And it’s been my favorite animal ever since.”
