I’m going to start journaling/blogging a bit about my attempts at improving my physical health, which has never been great but recently has gotten pretty poor. These posts will include summaries of my diet/exercise/general mood as it pertains to my physical health. I won’t be posting pictures of myself or before/after type stuff.
I’ll be putting all of them under a cut, titled and tagged “health,” because I know a few of my followers don’t like seeing that kind of thing. I expect to be posting “health” things 2-3 times a week, but that may be optimistically high. It’s mostly so I can keep a log for myself and to hold myself accountable. Just wanted to let everybody know what’s going on :)
Went to the movies tonight and was thrilled to see the male and female lead being platonic but I also sort of wanted them to bang? But not get together, no fall in love, just have friend sex. But the problem is that friend sex flat out just doesn’t exist in tv and movies. It’s always ‘friends have sex thinking they can keep it cool but OH NO FEELINGS HAVE GONE AND RUINED EVERYTHING.’
Which is such bullshit. Because, yeah, some people go like that, but a lot of people just don’t. Like, I’ve had sex with quite a few of my friends and it’s never gone any deeper than that. Things haven’t ended up awkward and weird, and new feelings haven’t overwhelmed us. Hell, one of said friends is already madly in love with his fabulous wife, so why’s he going to go falling in love with me?
I just want more people in media who can have sex with people they hang out with and not have it ~change everything~.
Rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan (emerged before Samurai)An onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. Many wives, widows, daughters, and rebels answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honor in times of war. They also represented a divergence from the traditional “housewife” role of the Japanese woman. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, although this is an oversimplification. Onna bugeisha were very important people in ancient Japan. Significant icons such as Empress Jingu, Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako were all onna bugeisha who came to have a significant impact on Japan.
a good 60% of posts making fun of MRAs are unrebloggable to me bc they throw fatness in there under reasons MRAs are terrible
There’s also some pretty sweet ableism thrown in there a lot of the time, for good measure
Especially when it’s criticising the body-policing misogyny of MRAs, do you see the problem?
George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
