10 questions to never ask a transgender person by Laura Jane Grace
Why have a life when you can tumblr? My name is Katie and this is a blog full of random shit I enjoy. I am married to the lovely Lauren @lauzza-in-tha-tardis and I'm just strange
plus sized models are JUST as unrealistic as skinny models.
They have been elongated, their cellulite has been brushed out, waists pinched and hips widened and rounded.
It makes us think “I’m not even plus sized pretty” when NO-ONE IS.
They aren’t being forward thinking.
They aren’t embracing body positivity
They’ve just creating another unrealistic standard for women to hate themselves for.
THIS is exactly why I get so heated about these boys. These girls who aren’t even old enough to understand the damage these boys can cause are just blindly following their every word. These boys are role models. They are celebrities, and they need to learn that they affect a lot of people. It doesn’t matter if they were “just kidding”. The words they are saying are still teaching pre - teen and early teenage girls that homophobic and racist tendencies are okay. The fact that this boy can say whatever he wants because he is “cuddly baby cam” is what’s sick, not the people calling him out for his ignorance and blatant disrespect for the role model status he has been given.
I keep seeing comments posted as “So many fathers are like this” and “Omg tons of people say this stop targeting him”. NO. First of all, just because other people are saying it, that doesn’t make it okay. Second of all, THEY. ARE. NOT. JUST. NORMAL. PEOPLE. They are celebrities. What they say doesn’t just affect one or two people. It affects millions. Their ignorance is ruining a generation and I will not fucking stand for it.
riots are breaking out in glasgow right now, scottish flags are being burned, people are making nazi salutes, there is racism and sectarianism and god knows what else, there are supposed stabbings, people are being beaten up purely for voting Yes, but the bbc has decided that a news story more worthy of being reported is the first iphone 6 owner dropping his new phone. the anti-scottish bias from the bbc is reaching new levels of absurdity
