[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]

SO MUCH TRUTH.

If we start calling it “anti-oppression” instead of “social justice,” do you think anti-sjers will start using it too? If they’re talking about how they’re so opposed to anti-oppression, maybe it’ll be harder for random folks to mistakenly think they have a point.

i finally figured out why something was bothering me.

but it’s just a thing someone said offhand a couple years ago, so this probably changes nothing

sign this right now

the goal of the non-binary petition is flawed, this one is much more realistic and has a serious concrete goal that will help people definitely more than harm them (which the nb petition has the possibility of doing) 

SIGN AND BOOST

huh? the first petition could harm people? what gives?

I’ve bookmarked a bunch of links but haven’t had time to really read them, but from what I’ve seen the problem is largely that poc and amab people won’t have the same access to legal recognition because of safety and whatnot. So it would become another privilege for white and afab people, and would further marginalize those who don’t have the same access.

trigger warnings are like the “may contain peanuts” of mental health and the fact that people are so adamantly opposed to them existing at all - like, anything being labeled by anyone to alert folks to potential triggers, ever - is really telling

at my funeral there’s gonna be a potato bar that serves bottomless fries (waffle, french, curly q, all varieties), hash browns, tater tots, boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, home fries, potato chips, sweet potatoes, potato based vodka, baked potatoes, scalloped, diced, and sliced potatoes

why at your funeral? you can’t eat them

why not at your birthday
