Carol had grown so rich, she wanted to retire. She took me to her cabin and she told me her secret. 'I am not the real Carol Christ' she said. 'My name is Ryan; I inherited the school from the previous Carol Christ, just as you will inherit it from me. The woman I inherited it from is not the real Carol Christ either. Her name was Cummerbund. The real Carol Christ has been retired 15 years and living like a king in Patagonia.'
“The reality is that fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in starving themselves, in engaging in unsafe exercise, and in seeking out weight loss by any means necessary. A thin person who does these things is considered mentally ill. A fat person who does these things is redeemed by them. This is why our culture has no concept of a fat person who also has an eating disorder. If you’re fat, it’s not an eating disorder — it’s a lifestyle change.”—
I just want to nail this to every stable surface I can find. I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve seen fat folks being encouraged, cajoled, and even forced into behaviors that would be recognized as disordered eating/exercising patterns in thin folks.
Pretty much everything that’s done on shows like The Biggest Loser would be called out as pro-ana/pro-orthorexia in a thin person. Exercising past the point that it hurts, to the point where you’re throwing up, even injuring yourself? Berating yourself because you didn’t lose ENOUGH weight this week? Constantly talking about how fat is weakness and thinness will make everything better, about how you can’t stand to be your current weight anymore? Emphasis on weight as a sign of how much control, strength, and worth you have? Viewing food as bad, as a temptation to sin? Constant sharing and talking about tips on how to minimize food intake, how to lose weight?
That sounds exactly like every pro-ana/pro-mia blog I’ve ever seen. It’s also what fat people are told we need to be doing to ourselves until we’re thin.
Okay I’ve seen quite a bit of nonsense recently about sexuality in general and it’s just finally come to the stage where…
I honestly don’t fucking understand what the big deal is any more.
Okay I’m going to try and make this as concise as possible without derailing too much so here goes.
Sexuality is a personal preference to any given person, we have:
I know there are SO many more than this but those are the basic ones that keep cropping up regardless of the person’s gender.
But here comes my query.
Myself and several friends are asexual.
Whilst my other friends as bisexual, others are homosexual, others hetero, so on and so forth, basically my friends could fit the rainbow spectrum of different sexual orientations and that’s awesome!
But the query…Why do people make such a fuss about one person being their sexual preference?
Example, a friend has been recently questioned, and normally always questioned as to why ‘S/he never wants to have sex’ and other silly nonesense about her asexuality…And honestly, why should those people even ask? Do they have any sexual desire to fuck my friend? Is that why they’re constantly badgering on about it?
Another friend kept getting bashed for being homosexual because people of the opposite gender wanted in their pants, and it’s just honestly confusing yet again, you know they like the same gender, why do you insist on pursuing this futile endeavour and making that person upset.
Okay I’m getting off topic, railing it back in again.
So what I’m trying to say is, why do people insist on wanting to basically coerce another person into their sexual orientation when it’s not for them?
Why should it even bother people that someone’s homosexual, asexual, bisexual, heterosexual or whateverelsesexual. The only people the sexual orientations it should concern are the people who wish to be whatever they want and people who they like or who like them (and then if they’re not the sexuality you like tough shit and grow up).
So here’s something to think about before you ask shit: If you’re not asking a legitimate question on sexuality and are pestering a person about their choices, just don’t. It make you look immature and really foolish and basically a huge ass bully, plus it makes you look like what people view as ‘religion extremist’
Can’t we just accept their is more to humanity than black and white in anything?
Can’t we embrace the colours and diversity that is culture, opinion and human society?
SO yeah I think I’m pretty much done here…
So…Yeah…I’ll end it here haha I dunno how else to end it otherwise!
