Sea Change Ripples: Don't be a hero →
seachangeripples: The special education field has embraced the unenlightened theme of heroism. As professionals we are often called “heroes” and praised for our patience and big hearts. We pride ourselves in “transforming lives” and “shaping futures.” Our skills and education are praised as “superpowers.” I am…

(hell, yeah) Scarleteen: Don't forget! →
hellyeahscarleteen: If you’re using a hormonal contraceptive like the birth control pill, patch or ring, taking/using them every day, without fail, is so important. Even more important? ALWAYS taking/applying/inserting that first pill, patch or ring after the placebo week on time. If there’s any one that’s the one…

This Is Amusing.
Fat Person: Sexual attraction to fat bodies doesn't automatically make you body positive. Wanting to have sex with fat people doesn't make you a good person.
Fat Admirer: OMG! Why are you trying to take my sexuality away?!?
Fat Person: I... wha?
Fat Admirer: So, like, I'm not allowed to find fat women attractive now?!?
Fat Person: Who are you talking to? I didn't say anything even a little like that.
Fat Admirer: I'm a bad person for liking fat women?!?
Fat Person: That's seriously not what I sai...
Fat Admirer: You know, you should be grateful of dudes like me.
Fat Person: Here we go...
Fat Admirer: Do you know how hard it is to be into fat chicks?
Fat Person: Um, when did I even say anything about it not being hard? And since YOU brought it up, I'm pretty sure its not as hard as actually being fat.
Fat Admirer: I just want to advocate for how sexy fat chicks are?
Fat Person: You get that there isn't actually a homosexual agenda, don't you? You're not supposed to advocate for your sexuality. That's not really helping fat pe...
Fat Admirer: Women like you don't get a lot of complements, but now you're going to bite the hand that feeds you?
Fat Person: Yeah, that's a really bad idiom to bring into this.
Fat Admirer: I just think its really stupid for fat admirers and fat people to always be bickering when we should be working together.
Fat Person: Oh, I get it. Its just bickering when you aren't getting your way.
Fat Admirer: Fat acceptance should be grateful for whatever ally it can get.
Fat Person: You're pretty much just demanding that fat people grovel at your feet for whatever scraps you see fit to toss our way now.
Fat Admirer: But you should still tone it down with all this political stuff. Some of us just want to love us some fat ladies.
Fat Person: So, we should be grateful of your ambivalence, then? What does it say about you if you aren't interested in the oppression of the people you're sexually attracted to? It seems to say you think the oppression benefits you so best not rock the boat.
Fat Admirer: OMG! Stop confiscating our boners!!!!1!
The Male Privilege Checklist →
fattyforever: sadsoulful-sleepyhead: The Male Privilege Checklist 1. My odds of being hired for a job, when competing against female applicants, are probably skewed in my favor. The more prestigious the job, the larger the odds are skewed. 2. I can be confident that my co-workers won’t think I got my job because of my sex – even though that might be true. 3. If I am never promoted, it’s...
