this is bullshit though

I keep myself up to date with these things and the current consensus (from people who are not funded by diet companies or starting with shitty assumptions… but often from people who are shocked by their findings and close with ‘well being fat is bad anyway’ nonsense, despite proving that it’s not) is diabetes makes you fat and both types of diabetes are probably genetic (the difference being that type II comes on later in life but you had the genes for it anyway). Which is not anything like ‘being fat gives you diabetes’. I literally don’t care about what percentage of people with diabetes are fat because that is not a meaningful statistic for someone looking to avoid diabetes. You might as well pledge to not inject insulin, or visit the doctor a lot…

I’m pretty sure insulin resistance is a bullshit concept too but I can’t specifically remember reading dozens of studies about that one so I’ll not vouch for it. (like, it’s a real thing, but it’s not a disease in and of itself is what I dimly recall.)

I don’t think questions where the answer is ‘women, stop eating’ are questions worth asking at all, for obvious reasons. But really, I am a hypochondriac, I am fat, I have PCOS (which also goes along with insulin resistance, as I remember) and I am less than bothered about this. I am more concerned that my grandma had diabetes because that’s an actual risk factor. But there’s nothing to be done about that.

(I think this is just part of the way americans think both wealth and now good health are achievable by everyone if you try hard enough. Which is bigoted. And kind of laughable to people who know better. Sorry everyone, but most things in your life are down to heredity and chance! Get to grips with it sooner rather than later. Nothing you eat or don’t eat will change that you’ll die one day! No matter how many angry posts with ~science words~ you make on the internet.)

~science words~


The battlecry of the massively deluded.

The argument against science is going to work about as well for you as it does for religious extremists.

There is a good reason the vast majority of doctors, professionals who devote their lives to studying how the body works, will tell you that being overweight tends to be unhealthy. You’re a fool if you really think that this reason is some conspiracy of diet companies, fat shaming, and bigotry.

With this sort of attitude, transpeople will be achieving perfect equality in no time!

your feelings being sort of hurt < the oppression of an entire group of people
trans people get killed because they are trans
and you’re telling me that they shouldn’t be mad at cis-gendered people because your feelings get hurt
sure okay

Disregarding the human value of “the other” is oppression 101. I see lots of bullshit about how unimportant feelings are to the point of “feelings” being a derisive term. Is that really how you want to play this game? You think you can achieve equality with a diplomacy-be-damned attitude?
Acting like an ass only gives people incentive to oppose you. You’re just digging your own grave.

16mmofslut:

I really can’t stand male feminists

you can be an ally, you can be a friend, you can help out, you can try to make the world a better place for women, BUT YOU ARE NOT A FEMINIST

don’t give your opinions and expect them to hold higher ground than other feminists

don’t give say ‘insightful’ things and expect feminists to give you piles and piles of cookies

don’t try to re-instate the ideas and work of other feminists and expect to get credit for being sooooo “enlightened”

don’t do anything

just listen

and shut up

You are very clearly not a feminist either. A feminist would encourage others to respect women. Your post just makes me want to mock you. That’s hardly feminism.

...and, the sun also rises: Reminder to my followers: I identify as a feminist and believe that men can be feminists

allriversruntothesea:

I understand the view that some feminists hold about how sexism affects women and thus only women can be feminists. In comparison to anti-racism, its difficult (damn near impossible) for whites to be true advocates for that movement because the experience is entirely foreign. However I would say…

Most of what you said makes sense, except the bolded part. You don’t need to be the victim of something to understand how wrong it is.

Aren’t they the ones making the majority of the votes for equality?

Yes, they are. Fortunately, there are still no laws against anti-douchebag discrimination. If there is one group that deserves discrimination and oppression, it’s assholes; a group to which the OP clearly belongs.

google’s search algorithm takes in to account websites that you frequently search for and visit.

I dunno, I tried it myself and got the same image results.

i guess it works differently for image searches. My bad.

thisisthinprivilege:

Thin privilege is moving back in with your parents when you’re between jobs and not having them tell you that they’d rather you focused on losing weight rather than finding a job and that they’ll help you out with some pocket money.

Thin privilege is being offered both a full and part-time job and not having your family harass you for days about taking the part-time one, so that you can focus on exercising more to lose weight.

Thin privilege is not having your family tell you that you can housesit for them rent free as long as you “treat going to the gym and losing weight as your job.”

Thin privilege is not having your family tell you to quit your full time job/other part time job/cut back on study so that you can focus on “going to the gym and getting your weight under control again”.

Thin privilege is not having your family tell you this over and over even though you have a chronic pain condition that has limited your mobility for years.

It isn’t a privilege to lack a caring family that is financially stable. Just the fact that you can sit here and throw your family’s generous offer to support you back in their faces makes you reek of privilege.

Things being heterosexual means

  • Attracted to the opposite sex

Things being heterosexual doesn’t mean

  • Evil
  • Bigoted
  • Rude
  • Hateful
  • Close minded
  • Superficial
  • Homophobic

Things being heterosexual also apparently means:

  • Feeling the need to make whiny posts because the people you oppress see you as oppressors.

More things being heterosexual means:

  • Feeling the need to make whiny posts that insist OMG NOT ALL STRAIGHT PEOPLE LIKE THAT OKAY

It’s hilarious how upset you people are getting over the implication that maybe heterosexuality isn’t the same thing as “evil”.

Where the heck is the Arkh Project? They’re not even bothering anymore trying to cover up the sacm that it clearly was.

I wonder what Riley and co are doing with the $6,000. I thought after that they wouldn’t have to go to getting posts signal boosted on tumblr for donations.

They’re probably looking to start a Westborough Baptist Church equivalent that is dedicated to protesting the funerals of straight white cis males.

How to be an anti-sj: beartriarchy: antisjschool: Make posts that say nothing more than,...

antisjschool:

Know EXACTLY NOTHING about the history of a word. Say it isn’t a slur. Know EXACTLY NOTHING about the history of the slur, make fun of it. Know EXACTLY NOTHING about what you’re talking about, talk anyway. Know EXACTLY NOTHING, be anti-sj. Know EXACTLY NOTHING and make no effort to learn a SINGLE THING about what you are talking about.
Be exactly what EVERY SINGLE anti-sj is. 
Hate is key.
Hate is OBVIOUSLY key.
Get EXCITED about the prospect of learning a new slur.
Be SUCH A MORON that you literally overlook the 4chan racist piece of shit that admitted to seeing how many of the COMPLETE AND UTTER IMBECILES he could get to repeat the word MORONICALLY
THIS is what it means to be anti-sj.
*Oh and lets not overlook the “Joke” about racism at the end. Fully showing them for who they are.*

Funny you should mention joking about racism. The only person in this conversation that is turning racism in to a “joke” is you. You are the one that chose to take a word as innocuous as “jimmies” and attempt to treat it as a racial slur. You are the one making light of something as serious as a slur. You are undermining the very concept of a slur and are doing actual, measurable damage to movements for equality everywhere.
So antisjchool, do you enjoy being a tool of oppression? Because you are a massive tool.

Aw damn I just noticed lacigreen is one of the commentary on that male-eating disorder post. I really outta pay attention to these things dammit.

I mean it’s OP and message is still really important and it makes me happy many of my followers have spread it around but I just

Fuck Laci Green and her anti-trans/trans-misogynistic bullshit. I know it was old shit, and people are allowed to grow (goodness knows you can easily find things of my own on the internet that would make me look hypocritical, that are from years ago) & doing or saying one bad thing does not nessicarily make you and what you do a bad person, by any means.

But instead of accepting that, saying sorry, and showing HOW she has grown  she just whined BUT PEOPLE CAN GROOOOWW WAAHHH and fuck that noise. It’s a shame because I did use to really like her, and she has made many great points, but the fact is if your sex and/or body positivity and feminism does not include trans/non binary folks and our trans sisters you can get the hell up out of my face.

“whined the angsty teen over an event that happened months ago.”

Yes, because it happening months ago means we should never bring it up again! It should hold no value, ever. Yes, yes, of course. I’m just some angsty teen, being dumb and disliking transmisogyny!

Hey, I never said that. I was just pointing out the irony of you trying to call out other people for “whining”. Also, Laci did issue an apology. The problem is, no apology is ever good enough because tumblr social justice doesn’t believe in that sort of thing. I’ve seen what you people do. you cruise the website looking for people who make minor infractions and might otherwise be on your side, and then you tear them apart.

You’re the internet equivalent of mean girls. You just sit around waiting for other members of your clique to screw up so that you can attack them like the social cannibals that you are.
