yeah, me too
Humanstuck Ampora doodles for the soul, because I was feeling down.
OH GOD NO THEYRE HOT
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH LOVING YOUR WEIGHT; NOT UNTIL IT BECOMES A HEALTH ISSUE.
Ya see, I’m all for body positivity. In fact, there’s only two body types I would ever frown upon or disapprove of. Those are morbidly obese and malnourished to the point of bones jutting out. Even then, it’s not because it’s “ugly” or “unattractive” it because at that point, it becomes less about how you look, and more about your health.
People justify being heavier with “it runs in my family” and such. I understand that, but there are still things to be done when its to the point that you can hardly walk, and your doctors are watching your heart dangle from a string. As for skinnier, well, even if there’s a form of eating disorder, there are still ways to push yourself up to a healthy weight.
There’s no putting it off, there’s no “it’s not my priority.” Your body is the only one you have, and your health is directly based upon it. It’s important, it’s likely the one and only thing you’ll have your entire life. Body weights on the very tips of the spectrum can kill you easily, if you let them. I encourage you to at least try, because, again, even if you love your body, you’ll love it more when it’s not threatening to give you a heart attack, or start using your organs for nourishment when you aren’t feeding it.
Tina Fey disappoints me. I really love her comedy but when she gets all political about equality among women it just seems like she doesn’t do her research. “Women have to lose weight for movies” phrase at the Oscars was pathetic. Numerous celebrities, including men like Jared Leto, Gerard Butler, Chris Platt, and of course Christian Bale, had/have to change their bodies to fit their roles - not just women.
And what she had to say about women’s bodies in bossy pants. tl;dr - this asian anon is so sorry her wide hips, dark tan, asian feet, and plump lips are actually reflected in the media by different women.
Stop feminizing gay men.
Yes most of the time they are likely to be a bit more effeminate than straight men and in some occasions they are quite clearly proudly, openly very effeminate.
But that doesn’t mean we want to be women.
And it doesn’t make it ok for straight female friends of gay men to say things like ‘omg can we put makeup on you pleeeeease!!!’ and ‘youd look so pretty in that dress’ and ‘im more of a man than you are lol’
One time my friend told me about how her dad asked her if any boys are coming to her party and she answered with my name and another gay friend of her’s and he replied with ‘oh well they barely count do they’ and she found this so hilarious, saying ‘im crying’ and telling me this as if I was going to find it funny.
Why would I find being emasculated funny?
That’s what it is. Emasculation. Did it ever occur to the world that although I’m attracted to men and may have some effeminate tendencies, I still like to feel like a man? That I like being one and like being seen as one. And that I have a right to feel like the gender I am.
As much as it is a woman’s right to be able to feel like a woman if she wants.
It’s like calling a woman who just happens to be a lesbian ‘a total man’ and asking her if she has a dick or something.
I get that often they’re ‘just jokes’ but…
Do you understand that they do not make me feel good?
Because seriously, straight women or even straight men, doing this is so frequent and widespread, I wonder if they genuinely think that when they make jokes about gay people that strip away any shred of masculinity they have, that these gay men somehow like it. As if it was our goal to be seen as women and not as men and that we’re going to pat ourselves on the back when someone sees us as one.
Homosexuality does not equal transgender.
I like men.
That doesn’t mean I necessarily like:
Dressing up as a woman.
Referring to myself as a woman.
Seeing myself as a woman.
Others seeing and referring to me as a woman.
And jokes that reduce me to nothing but a laughing stock of a man who apparently wants nothing more on this earth than to be female.
And don’t say that I’m being sexist because I have no problem with any man who wants to be a woman or who sees/ refers to himself as a woman or that there’s anything wrong with being a woman.
But there is something wrong with being denied the gender you are purely based on your sexuality.
(I don’t really care about the picture, so I’m talking about gays, let’s just put the flag there.)
Alright, I hear a lot of people say, we need more gays in TV shows, we need more gays in video games, and trans, and queers, and so on and so forth.
Yeah… No. We don’t. Gay people are, sorry for some of you to hear, but a minority. Shocking I know. If you got 10 people in a room, on average maybe 1 or 2 would be gay. Maybe.
So when a TV show or a video game has one gay person in the whole cast and that’s it… that’s accurate. Not a lot of people are gay. As a whole, yeah there’s tons of them, but statistically, trans, gays, queers, and whatever, are a minority to the average population. This doesn’t make them lesser or shitty, and I’m not attacking them. I’m just saying that statistically, you wouldn’t see one as often as you would normal people in TV. So no, you don’t need a cast that’s super diverse, and includes all different kinds of people EVENLY. Let me stress this, Evenly. Yes, casts can have gays, and POCs, and trans, but more often then not, the cast will be a majority of straight cis people. This is just how it is.
The Disney Princess arguments are seriously the stupidest and most hypocritical discussions I’ve seen on this site. Everytime a new princess movies happens everyone complains that it’s another movie showing that girls can’t be anything but royalty and when they make a normal movie with a female lead they complain it’s a missed opportunity to make other princess film.
When the princess is white they complain she isn’t of color and when she is they complain “They are doing this just so they don’t look racist” which is exactly what happened with Princess and the Frog.
Then finally after the movie is out everyone acts like all previous criticisms never existed and over analyzes every frame to death to try to make it look like it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread while literally ignoring any flaws the film actually has, refusing to take any real criticism.
But the saddest thing I see when it comes to the princesses is that this is an argument that I’ve seen only in the Disney fandom. I’ve yet to ever see anyone complain about the lack of female protagonists and racial representation from any other animation studio like Dreamworks and they are doing more or less the same thing: making children’s movies!
Make an argument and stick with it!
It’s so stupid to me that when people say the next Disney Princess should be gay?! I mean sure, we should 100% no doubt be open to gay marriage in every aspect in our life. But I think that pushing it onto children is taking it a bit far.
We have to realize that they are made for CHILDREN. Not adults! We shouldn’t throw social issues at children and expect them to understand. Young children are learning basic concepts such as sharing, kindness and trust. Do you people even realize how abstract the idea of being gay would be to a two year old, or even a four year old?! When I was younger, my best friend had a crush on a boy with lesbian parents and we assumed that (because they both had short hair) they figured each one was a boy and got married without “checking” properly. Although I am 100% with gay marriage and I totally believe in everything alike, it was just my child brain assuming that it wasn’t possible to be gay. By nature, we are supposed to grow up and have babies with the opposite sex. Turning that whole idea around on a child could be extremely confusing. Although yes, it won’t do horrible damage, it would still raise a lot of questions and confuse children. Children of that age group hardly know how they were conceived, how are they supposed to understand this?!
I also think that it would put Disney nearly out of business. Well, let’s be honest, that’s impossible. BUT, I do think a lot of parents would find it very strange for Disney to randomly throw in a lesbian princess. Disney teaches children about love and how they should never give up, it doesn’t teach children about gay couples and what it means to be gay.
Although I do think there is a slim chance they could pull it off. I think that it would be much better for Disney to create a princess who doesn’t fall in love or show romantic feelings through out the entire film and in a decade or so, announce that said-princess was actually gay. Or Disney could imply it but never actually say it. It would hurt Disney quite horribly if they did this out of the blue.
Also, I would much rather explain homosexuality to my child than have Disney explain it for me. I didn’t really even fully understand homosexuality until I was 10 and I’m still learning more and more about it today. It can be a confusing thing to understand at first but as they grow, they will come to understand. Children will treat social issues like their parents do, so in the end, that’s the group we should be targeting.
What the hell this is rad as life
Wow this is really well looped.
Hold on just a tick. Listen, I’m Jewish, so I’m perfectly capable of understanding that what he did was just…..well, there are no words for it. But let’s not round it up to simply Jews that got killed. It was six million people that died in those camps, not just Jews. Did you know that homosexuals were sent there, too? Yeah, I’m sure you did. They had to wear special little symbols on their clothes. Do you know what it was? It was a pink triangle.
It was six million PEOPLE.
But you let that roll over in your mind for a while and you are going to forever see this man as a monster, but that’s not what he was. He was someone who thought he was truly doing something right for his nation, no matter how shitty he was doing it. Believe me when I say that I don’t like him. I really don’t. My grandfather’s brothers died in those camps, and my grandfather escaped to Spain, then to Mexico. He was lucky.
This is not a monster holding hands with a little girl.
This is Adolf Hitler, a man, holding hands with a little girl.
Yeah. It’s fucking scary. It really is. Do you know why?
It’s because you’re seeing that he wasn’t, in fact, a monster. You’re seeing in this picture that he was a man. He was a man, and that’s really the saddest part of it all.
As a History major who specializes in the history of early modern Europe, I’ve studied a lot of dictators in detail, not just Hitler. The number one mistake anyone could ever make in history is making the assumption that only inhuman monsters are capable of doing terrible things.
Stop dehumanizing Hitler just so you can reassure yourself that “normal” humans aren’t capable of doing bad things. Hitler liked children and dogs, he was a vegetarian and he cried like a little boy when his mother died. I’m not saying he was a good, innocent person, but when you stop attributing human characteristics to historical figures like Hitler, it’s how you overlook people just like him in real life, and it’s how people like him end up back in power.
That last statement.
