The scary thing about mental illness is that it’s also so physical.
I’m looking forward to the day when my anxiety won’t make me feel like vomiting.
Sometimes I feel like nothing is good enough for tumblr. Disney portrays a strong female character. It’s not good enough because she’s white. Google does something for Elimination of Violence Against Women day. It’s not good enough because it’s not smacked in your face. You have to cherish the little victories, folks. The cup isn’t always half empty.
I’m torn. I feel like sometimes Tumblr is the only place that will call things out for being questionable. On the other hand, Tumblr is so picky. Like, for the topic of feminism, it becomes a contest of who can out-feminist the others.
i’m just listening to some radio show and somebody called in and asked if it would be ok to cook the tofurkey in butter instead of earth balance and if her vegan kids (!!!) would notice
her reasoning was that there was just something about the smell of the butter crackling in the bottom of the…
I’m disturbed that this person is well aware that their offspring are vegetarians/vegans and can’t respect that and even more so by the logic fail on their part. If one plans to make tofurkey, they should cook it in vegan-approved cooking juice or else that kind of makes the tofurkey pointless. If this person absolutely must have non-vegan products, they could maybe buy a smaller “real” turkey and give everyone what they want.
Not to start a fight on the subject of veganism because I tend to take the “Do what makes you feel good” approach but one thing that crossed my mind about veganism being a personal choice is that depending on who the person is, veganism may not be everyone’s choice but they are forced into the lifestyle. Example: A mom or dad who are going vegan with young children who can’t cook for themselves. I was wondering if this radio caller is the parent of young children who can’t make other arrangements for themselves.
FCKH8 SUPPORTS PETA OH MY GOD IT’S A NEVER-ENDING CYCLE OF SHIT
You can’t convince me these two groups don’t meet up with other groups like Femen and Autism Speaks in some social justice-themed Legion of Doom.
Ugh! The worst so-called social justice groups ever!
Side note: I once knew a girl who was an active member of Autism Speaks. She was extremely contradictory in everything about her but especially when it came to actually supporting autism research and awareness. I never bought her support and with the bits and pieces I’m hearing I feel like maybe I was on to something.
warning - body-shaming and weight loss talk
I can’t even with this. So I’m sitting in my therapy session, pondering the idea of maybe mentioning that after 3 and a half years with her I’d like to start wrapping things up. I’m talking about how much things improved - my general mood and ability to…
Tell this woman that you’re ready to leave because you’ve resolved the reasons you started therapy and by the way, she needs to keep her mouth shut about weight gain because she is not a nutritionist, she is not a dietitian, and unless it was something you brought to her, then it is none of her business. You are perfectly within bounds to be hurt and angered. Good luck!
OKCupid is really just wearing me down at the moment. I changed my gender to “Male” for the weekend just to see what it would be like, and dropped all my cookies. Wow, internet advertising sure is *different* when you are a man. Lots of car and technology and banking ads. No cleaning product ads…
This man is clearly a loser! If he’s this contradictory on the internet, imagine how much worse he’d be in real life! If you want someone for your life partner, find someone who is crazy about you that won’t make you question yourself.
I had a huge well thought out rant here but messed up the read more option and lost it all so I’m going to cut it down this time:
I went for a check up that involved weight and blood pressure and I knew I had gained weight but according to the NHS charts I’m still in the healthy BMI range.
BMI can die in a fire! Very recently I seriously considered food restriction and purging because my BMI put me at overweight. I’m 5’0 and 142 pounds so yes, that would seem overweight. But I can function perfectly and I’m smaller appearance wise than most of the women that go to my university. But the BMI thinks I’m overweight. That doctors are using the BMI to put otherwise healthy people on a diet is one reason I believe eating disorders will become more common. The BMI is one size fits all and that’s garbage!
