I remember when I thought people in their 20’s were adults. Now all of my friends are in their 20’s and everybody is just kind of fumbling around bumping into each other, trying to figure out where the free food is
Makeup is FUN, creative, colorful, and an artistic form of expression.
Women and men can wear it for whatever reason they want…and most of the time, it’s NOT because of the social demands for beauty or to simply “impress” people. And even if those were the reasons, LAY OFF.
I am all right with this ad campaign. It uses simple text that emphasizes that individual women have their own individual reasons for wearing makeup as opposed to just putting some airbrushed celebrity at the forefront and making people feel ugly.
This ad campaign does get to the point as to why I wear and love makeup: because I want to. I wear makeup because I think it’s pretty, interesting, versatile, dynamic, and it makes me feel like I want to feel. I don’t need to wear makeup. I do not wear makeup for anyone other than myself. Makeup is about joy and becoming whomever you are!
Tomorrow morning I’m going to be speaking about weight-based discrimination in healthcare for a final project in Nursing Leadership. I’ll be joining 4 other radical nurse babes who want to raise awareness about ethical issues in healthcare delivery such as withholding information from patients, age-based discrimination, forced newborn genital cutting, mandatory vaccinations, and patient mismanagement.
Last night I was looking through my tumblr archive for an image to use on my slide for the presentation and I came across this photo. I remember how magical that day was for me and how empowering it was to feel so much love and pride for my body. I can see the joy in my face, and it’s not just because Sarah made me laugh, it’s because I felt no shame. I was truly comfortable in my own skin. And I want every single person who has ever felt shame for their body to experience the empowerment that comes with body positivity and self-acceptance.That’s why this issue is so important to me. One of the studies I read found that 24% of nurses were repulsed by fat patients, and 12% preferred not to touch them (Puhl & Brownell, 2001). That is simply not okay. Some of the patient outcomes of weight-based discrimination are anxiety seeking primary healthcare, and perceived messages of blame and shame. As Marilyn Wann says “you can’t hate people for their own good”, and this is especially important for healthcare providers to remember. We cannot empower people through shame.
You deserve to feel love and respect for your body no matter where you are in your physical, spiritual, and mental health journeys. Your body is not wrong. If you have mood disorders, personality disorders, or addiction, you are not broken. If society and healthcare providers are still struggling to treat you with kindness, dignity, and compassion, I hope you can find a way to give it yourself. I will be here, along with so many amazing body positive warriors, fighting for your right to self-love of the radical variety.

This post is Tumblr’s holiday post to you this year: it just keeps giving.
We’re a team, aren’t we? And I’m so proud of my victors. So proud. You both deserved so much better. I am truly sorry.
I haven’t written anything in ages and this is my (poor) attempt at getting back in form, so here you go: Derek is sick, Julian is annoyed and Logan is a hero (though, strangely, not everyone agrees)

Disney vs. 7 early fairytales
The 1812 version of Snow White is even worse when you consider that the girl was only seven years old in the tale (plus her unconscious body ended up being carted around by the prince until one of his servants accidentally woke her up). Also, in The Little Mermaid, the mermaid’s unable to speak because she had her tongue cut out >__<
But I’d love to see faithful adaptations of the original tales. Especially Bluebeard. We need a Bluebeard adaptation.
Actually, the original-original pre-Grimm Brothers’ stories that were passed around Europe via oral tradition are nowhere near as violent as the Grimm’s made them. Cinderella’s stepsisters were never ugly and kept their eyes, Snow White’s mother was not even a villain (instead a group of bandits were), and instead of spending the whole story napping Sleeping Beauty outwitted a dangerous bandit leader, wouldn’t let him sleep with her, and saved herself.
The original oral stories were radically changed by the Brothers Grimm to fit their personal and political beliefs. Most notably, they often added in female characters solely for the purpose of making them evil villains and took away most of the heroines’ agency and intelligence. Both brothers belonged to a small fanatical sect of Catholicism that vilified women because of the idea of Original Sin and Wilhelm in particular had a particularly deep hatred of women. The Grimms were actually pretty horrible people. Those cannibalistic queens and ugly stepsisters and the mass amount of violence against women didn’t exist until the Grimms wanted them to. Their ideas stuck so soundly though that we now assume they were in the original tales and that these terrible characters and ideas come out of some perceived barbaric Old World culture. But in truth they’re really the Grimms’ weird obsession with hating women showing through. The original oral folklore focused on the heroes’ and heroines’ good deeds and used them as ways to teach cultural norms and a society’s rules and encouraged girls to be quick-witted and street-savvy instead of passive princesses, and the Grimms promptly stripped that all away.
"Grimms Bad Girls and Bold Boys" by Ruth Bottingheimer is an excellent book on this
I am so happy about this post, you have no idea.
A sense of humor can make everything better. Sex isn’t like it is in the movies or in porn. There will be strange and weird and awkward sounds, there might be a silly interruption like the cat or a kid… you might knock heads or trip getting undressed. Sex is funny, foreplay is funny and sometimes you need to just laugh. It will keep things from getting awkward! If you take sex too seriously you aren’t truly enjoying it!
Not to mention a sense of humor can be really sexy no matter what your gender identity is!
this comic is literally my favorite thing on tumblr.
i’ve always said if you can’t laugh with the person you’re having sex with while you’re having sex with them you shouldn’t be having sex with them.
My husband once walked up behind me while i was sitting in the living room just watching t.v…and he put his penis on my shoulder and said “hello..”
THIS WAS HIS SEDUCTION.
THIS WAS HIS IDEA OF HOW TO GET ME INTO BED.
it worked, but not before I laughed for days.
For that last comment.
I always had a ton of weird funky condoms at my place because I volunteered with Planned Parenthood and did a lot of sex education and sex positive work. I literally had no less than like thirty different types of condoms at a time. So when it came time to grabbing a condom it was a grab bag of WHO KNOWS what you’ll end up with.
Long story short, my boyfriend grabs one, puts it on, heat of the moment type thing, a some point we both look down and see it’s an ELECTRIC GREEN condom. Dead pan he looks me straight in the eye and in his best impression goes “HEY HO. KERMIT DEE FROG HERE.” And I COMPLETELY LOST IT.
On a completely different occasion I said “don’t stop” and he sang ALL of Don’t Stop Believing. All of it. All of it. Right then and there. Without stopping.
Can I add the story about how me and one of my partners had a very enthralling discussion about deserts while I was on top of him?
Or the time my partner’s friends blasted “Eye of the Tiger” through the door and we rocked it out to the beat while quoting the movie?
I was with this girl during a trip out to Washington, we’d hung out a few times, and hit it off really well. So we got together one afternoon. Her dorm-mate came home, saw the “Do Not Disturb” sock on her bedroom door and called out “Thrusters to full!”
Not missing a beat the girl and I yelled back “We’re giving it all we’ve got, Captain!” and her roommate started fucking dying outside the door.
Probably should have proposed right on the spot, but whatever.
It got better.
best thing i’ve ever read
