25 brief, delicious year.(From The Atlantic)
I was born in ‘85. Interesting to see just how fast things have changed.
Okay, cool graphic. But can we stop the bullshit discussions about how this is because people are too lazy to take care of their bodies? Can we finally address the ACTUAL root causes of this, like poverty (causing people to have no money for fresh foods, and NO TIME to prepare it because working three jobs is necessary just to pay the rent), food deserts (no access to healthy food), and lack of education (no, not that people think a Big Mac is healthy, but that they literally do not know how to cook and store food, because that’s something parents often teach and they have no time to do so - see above)?
Can we talk about how processed food is considerably cheaper and INFINITELY more convenient for working people than fresh food? Can we talk about how most agricultural subsidies underwrite the cost of processed food? Can we talk about the way physical education is being cut from schools all over the country, and many after-school sports are making the transition from free for all to pay-to-play? Can we talk about how free of charge safe places for children (and adults) to exercise are more and more scarce, especially in urban areas?
Can we talk about how BMI, the formula used to measure “obesity rates,” is patently unscientific and absurd? And for the love of all that is good in the world, can we finally talk about how you can be healthy and obese at the same time?
No, of course not. Because then we’d have to stop shaming people for their bodies - fuck off, Atlantic.
I can’t even… I’m still in shock.
What? You think he gets hair product privileges in prison?

when lupin and tonks died i vomited, sobbed, and couldn’t eat for a week

I feel slightly strange compared to you guys. I get very sad when characters I like die, but I don’t react like you do. I’m almost emotionless compared to you guys. Maybe it’s because I know they’re not real.
When Ianto from Torchwood died I couldn’t sleep properly for a couple of days. A friend and I were sobbing down the phone to each other. Character love is strange.
Well, the only time I ever cried for a character was actually a well-written Flash fic starring Bart Allen. He had to give up his daughter for adoption and that scene really spoke to me for some reason. I felt his pain and cried in the same way he did.
I don’t think it has anything to say about not loving the character, if you don’t have those sorts of severe reactions—there are a whole bunch of different aspects that make a person more emotional over somebody or a character they’ve connected with.
Me, I’m depressed as all fuck and Lupin and Tonks were my stand in parents during a really bad time in my life. They came to me in dreams every night to take care of me. So losing them was like losing a family member. Loki’s started to make me feel in a similar way during a hellish college experience, and that makes me worry for my own sanity if he dies.
Sometimes it’s better to have your sorts of reactions.15
Ashley Del Valle is a transgender woman from New York who was arrested in Georgia for indecent exposure after she allegedly showed her breasts, but then was housed in an all-male jail.
You arrest her because her top is too sheer and shows her nipples, something that is only a crime for women.
And then you jail her as a man.
