if u complain about thin shaming, ya ass is gone
What, you just want people to be silent about the body shaming that they face?
i’ve been skinny, i’ve been fat. i don’t support critiquing anyone’s bodies at any time. but trying to compare fat…
“so yeah, if you actually think ‘thin shaming’ exists as a specific problem separate from general body shaming”
I don’t think that. Lets be clear here.
It’s all body shaming and to me it’s all the same. thin or fat shaming.
None of it is justifiable like so many people seem to think.
I am also very much an anti-feminist and this conversation doesn’t really have too much to do with feminism so I don’t know why you felt the need to bring that up.
It also seems any time someone on this site disagrees with me they throw “well you’re an anti-feminist” at me.
Just throwing this out there. But perhaps the reason why people who were thin and are now fat don’t think thin shaming is comparable, is because they were more confident about their body image back then so they just brushed the shit off. Now they’re self conscious about themselves so every little detail that critiques them gets taken to heart.
O WOW THAT’S SO BRILLIANT NO ONE HAS EVER SUGGESTED THAT BEFORE AND IT’S AMAZING LIKE HOW U KNOW MY PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH MY BODY LIKE THAT WOW!!! I TOTALLY DIDN’T CONSIDER THAT EVER!!!!!! NOT ONCE DID THAT THOUGHT CROSS MY MIND.
and like obviously i was just thin and than fat and never in between? or fat than thin?
because you know being thin is inherently “good” and therefore should make me feel confident and being fat is inherently “bad” and would, of course, make me feel self conscious?
where do you think these ideas of body image come from? were they just sent from space? are they just ingrained in our DNA? plz link me to where you got this info because from where i’m standing you literally just proved my point for me.
They’re intrinsic to human nature ya daft cunt. You know, maybe it comes from the knowledge we have about the fucking plethora of adverse health effects that come with being fat.
Or since its been fucking proven that sexual preferences are a genetic predisposition, and the fact that being conventionally attractive is a thing, even without anyone saying jack shit you still feel better knowing you’re healthier and more attractive.
Or maybe its the sense of pride that comes along with actually having some discipline and putting in the effort to not be fucking fat. People tend to actually take pride in shit they worked for.
But no, its all the media’s fault, men are all so dumb they just chase whatever the models on tv look like, even though I’ve never fucking known one dude who ever watched that shit. It’s all fucking women.
"intrinsic to human nature" right, you implied that before but i’m still asking you for actual links that give me that information. or am i just supposed to believe you, for no reason? i’m "daft" for asking for an example independent of your random ass on tumblr?
do you just know this because it’s how you feel and you are so brilliant you’re able to tease apart which feelings were put there by society and which are natural? cause that’s an astounding skill!!
and please don’t link me to the Daily Mail. i want an actual study from a medical journal proving your point (which i know i won’t get cause you just like to yell at people and feel powerful on the internet - not actually understand issues)
cause like, i have actual links. not that i expect you’d actually bother to read any of them. because you literally have a blog dedicated to doing nothing but dedicating your time looking for conflict. you’re not trying to “better” anything or help people, you’re literally there to be just “ANTI-STUFF”. you actually bothered to take the time out of your day to run a blog that does nothing but seek out other people who are passionate about something and tear them down while simultaneously helping no one in the process. you’re obviously very young, and if you’re not i feel a hell of a lot worse for you. you are gonna be one miserable, lonely person for the rest of your life if this is how you choose to express yourself.
Prejudice against overweight people is rife. However, there is a paucity of research on the underlying reasons for it. In two studies the relationship between body image, the tendency to make physical appearance-related comparisons (PACS), and both explicit and implicit anti-fat attitudes was examined. In Study 1 (n = 227) people with a high tendency to make physical appearance-related comparisons (high PACS scorers) reported lower self-appearance evaluation, but higher appearance orientation and explicit anti-fat attitudes. The PACS fully mediated the relationship between appearance orientation and explicit anti-fat attitudes. Study 2 (n = 134) found that the PACS also mediated the relationship between appearance orientation and implicit anti-fat attitudes. Thus, individual differences in factors such as body image and the tendency to make appearance-related comparisons, appear to play a central role in both explicit and implicit anti-fat attitudes.
Although associated consistently with psychological and economic outcomes, less is known about whether weight discrimination is associated with longitudinal changes in obesity. The objectives of this research are (1) to test whether weight discrimination is associated with risk of becoming obese (Body Mass Index≥30; BMI) by follow-up among those not obese at baseline, and (2) to test whether weight discrimination is associated with risk of remaining obese at follow-up among those already obese at baseline. Participants were drawn from the Health and Retirement Study, a nationally representative longitudinal survey of community-dwelling US residents. A total of 6,157 participants (58.6% female) completed the discrimination measure and had weight and height available from the 2006 and 2010 assessments. Participants who experienced weight discrimination were approximately 2.5 times more likely to become obese by follow-up (OR = 2.54, 95% CI = 1.58–4.08) and participants who were obese at baseline were three times more likely to remain obese at follow up (OR = 3.20, 95% CI = 2.06–4.97) than those who had not experienced such discrimination. These effects held when controlling for demographic factors (age, sex, ethnicity, education) and when baseline BMI was included as a covariate. These effects were also specific to weight discrimination; other forms of discrimination (e.g., sex, race) were unrelated to risk of obesity at follow-up. The present research demonstrates that, in addition to poorer mental health outcomes, weight discrimination has implications for obesity. Rather than motivating individuals to lose weight, weight discrimination increases risk for obesity.
Implicit stereotypes of fat people (relative to thin people) as lazy versus motivated, stupid versus smart, and worthless versus valuable were demonstrated, further establishing the pervasiveness of the implicit bias. These stereotypes, which include attributes clearly unrelated to health, were exhibited in both the general population and among college students. The consistency of the implicit bias across the different samples and methodologies stood in contrast to the lack of explicit anti-fat/pro-thin bias. Interestingly, the only evidence of self- reported anti-fat attitudes emerged when evaluations of fat people as good versus bad were compared relative to evaluations of normal weight people. These studies support the pervasiveness of implicit bias against overweight people and the unique demonstrations of bias that can be learned from implicit measures. Given the relative nature of the measures used, the results can be interpreted as both anti-fat and pro-thin biases. On the basis of popular messages in the media that promote fat jokes and the idolization of thin models, it seems likely that both pressures are active in Western cultures.
Across the studies, a surprising pattern of results emerged from the different approaches to modifying anti-fat/pro-thin biases. Although providing information to participants that obesity is predominantly caused by behavioral factors, such as overeating and lack of exercise, led to higher bias (compared with the other groups), giving comparable information that obesity is mainly due to genetics did not result in lower implicit or explicit biases. Our attempts to evoke empathy through stories of discrimination against an overweight young woman did not produce lower bias across the whole sample.
but like it’s cool, i’m sure you know better than all of the people who bothered to write those studies up ^^^^ right? (i have more if u need them!)
Hey fucko, Being anti-negative shit is helping people.
First link, doesn’t say a mother fucking thing about thin vs fat shaming. Or how people only prefer women the media tells them to. Just that personal body image effects a persons likelihood to make aesthetic comparisons. No fucking shit, anyone who went to middle school could have told ya that.
Second link, again. Shows nothing on comparing the two. Or why people prefer thin people. Just that shaming has negative effects. Again, middle schooler could tell you this.
Third link. Or ya know, could have something to do with being lazy and not knowing shit about diet and exercise makes people more likely to be fat. And again, no comparison. No reason WHY people prefer thin, just that they do.
And no thanks, I have my own.
For thin shaming.
How people have no clue what it means to eat and exercise properly.
And how terrible being fat is for you and how prevalent it is in this country.
And in regards to why people find thin bodies more attractive.
Because why orientation may be effected by society, its based on genetic predispositions. And obviously the healthier version is what people are going to generally find more attractive. Natural selection and evolution at work.
What a fucking idiot.
Cards Against Humanity, a game thats humor is found in how offensive it is, is too offensive. Let’s make it less offensive because people having fun is triggering.
Oh I got accused of rape, I don’t know I might have raped her, if she says I did. I don’t think I did, tho but I won’t sue for libel because I’m a fucking idiot and think it’s ok for women to be able to so easily destroy a man’s reputation on a whim.
Stories like this keep me up at night.
God bless them!
THIS is OK because they are FOR HIRE. They are ALLOWED to refuse gay couples.
So now we know- no one but homophobes and bigots would spend their money there.
Might as well rename your shit little shop “The Bigot Bakery” and be honest about it.
or you know, you could just
go to another bakery

also lol @ the notes, i love tumblr being so progressive n shit
same girl, same.
'Owning it' is a matter of perspective. Or legality, considering your point of view.
You’ve also manipulated the lighting of this room and brightened this so much that we can’t tell if any of those things are true. Girl, you can hardly even see your nose. We know the tricks. That’s not your skin glowing - that’s you blasting yourself with so much light in order to hide your natural complexion that you’re completely washed out. If you really wanted to own it, you’d do as I do and actually post the pictures where you look like shit. You know, in bad lighting, without makeup, where you look like a complete doofus. I do that, they’re all over this blog and the internet. I post the ones where I look good, too. I’m the same person either way, and what the fuck do I care what you have to say about my bad pictures or my good ones? You’re hypocritical as shit, though, to say that when you spent hours caking your face in foundation, drawing on your eyebrows, doing seriously god-knows what to your hair - that alone took hours upon hours, not to mention it’s bleached to shit and seriously unhealthy - and then be like “ohh I’m so ugly but so REAL!”
Fucking no you’re not. You’re a lying, vain whore just like everybody else.
Eat me, sunshine.
Natural light, no makeup, sweaty, zitty, shitty.
Oh gods… this girl… (the pink haired one I mean).
She’s also the one who said something along the lines of, “Periods are a natural and normal part of life! And society hates them because it breaks the illusion of women being pure, magical creatures instead of real human beings.” (something like that, more or less)
And yet here she is… Dolled up, with the obvious “natural” pink hair and drawn eyebrows. No. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with the way she dresses or wears make up or what have you. I could care less.
But I find it just a tad hypocritical when she’s preaching the “natural beauty” of women and “I know I have flaws!” while she’s clearly doing everything in her power to make herself look like some pink, fairy princess…
Just my two cents anyway.
I hate this woman.
She’s a hypocrite. To a huge degree.
Isnt this the same woman who said that you cant choose which women you respect because all women are deserving of your respect no matter what?
Could have been. I usually just make a throw up noise whenever I see her fucking face.
She is a known sympathizer of Anita Sarkeesian (ugh), yes, it was her who said all women were invariably deserving of all respect, and she’s also the one who went on the tirade against annoyed gamers and comic fans who were (rightfully) annoyed at the sudden wave of posers and cam-girls and female bloggers pretending to be into Geek Culture simply to increase their popularity/audience.
Chick’s a load of steaming bullshit.

I came out to attack people and I’m honestly having such a good time right now
Never apologize for loving yourself. Self-love is power
Of course Society fears selfies! Because what can they sell you besides the camera or a camera phone, that haircut, those clothes, the date plan on your phone, the subscription to a social messaging site that profits off selling your data to third parties, jewellery, make up, photo editing software and that’s without going into things people often use in selfies such as tickets for days out (both events and transport costs or petrol), food, toys, furniture…
I swear, if someone put Tumblr Slactavism in a dictionary, this would be the picture.
They also might fear people that take selfies because they do it while operating a fucking motor vehicle, take selfies while driving and die, plunge to their deaths after taking selfies, attempt suicide because they fail to capture the “perfect selfie”, take selfies instead of helping people, and those who take a lot of selfies have been linked to mental disorders including narcissism.
also the funny part?
The person who drew this drew it and put the signature on it to get advertisement for their blog, so they could increase their chances of getting commissioned, or at the very least, get users on tumblr to donate to the big fat DONATE button on their page.
