[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]

Well, damn.

Aw yeah, crushing the hierarchy with my fat and my not giving a shit.

Look at this amazing thing hawkwardly gave me for my birthday! : D

womeninmarvel:

Marvel editor Sana Amanat of Ms. Marvel, Elektra, Captain Marvel and New Warriors fame presented a TedxTeen talkon 03/01/2014 entitled “Myths, Misfits, and Masks” The talk is about how societal constructs influence vulnerable teens, impacting their self-worth and self-perception. Sana Amanat goes on to discuss how positive role-models like Ms. Marvel can influence the teenage demographic for the better. I highly recommend sitting down and giving her a listen. 

Yes. Everything about this.

samvvize asked: 5 and 12!

5. Naoki Urasawa came to mind for this. He’s one of my favorite comic artists.

12. I have this super weird habit of pinching the skin over my knuckles. I’ll also pinch/tug at Alex’s elbows. I find it relaxing.

spicyshimmy asked: 14 and 15!

14. Laptop, internet, some kind of tablet drawing device, Alex, and a super comfy couch.

Already did 15 haha

stonelions asked: 20, and 15 if you feel like it? :>

20.
Cause to be victorious
You must find glory in the little things
To be victorious
You must find glory in the little things

From Victory by Janelle Monae. The whole song is inspiring though.

15. This one is hard because I’m actually not much of an animal person… So I’m gonna say that I’d want to come back as unicorn dog so I can be held in Spock’s arms.

Went to see azizisbored on Saturday for my birthday. Was doodling people in the crowd while waiting for the show to start. But then an announcement came on and said cartooning wasn’t allowed and I had to quickly put everything away. They were onto me.
