" If you are not as concerned about the people handing you your food in the restaurant as you are about the pigs on the farm where it was grown, your approach is classist. … If you start telling someone all about your new trendy diet or asking them about theirs without knowing if they have an eating disorder that may be triggered by your prattle, your approach is ableist. If you tsk-tsk at people who are overweight for what they are eating and claim you’re concerned about their health, yet you’re not actively campaigning to make healthy food more accessible and affordable, your approach is sickening and I don’t want you in my activism. "

Food is for White Liberals What Sex Is For The Religious Right (via navigatethestream)

Yes. Especially the diet one, because it’s not seen as a problem, and yet if you have/have had an eating disorder, it hurts.
(Slight sidenote - I feel like reactions to triggers - at least personally -  change in different stages of recovery. When you’re still struggling, triggering makes you feel crap/act out on behaviours. Now, it just makes me really really angry. 'You've cut out white foods? Why the fuck would you do that?? Why the fuck would you advocate that, you bread-deprived moron?!'
So yes, don’t talk about your bizarro new diet, please. None o that.

Question on one of these powerpoint slides:

"Women’s political exclusion during the French Revolution: pragmatic or gendered?"

And I mean, how can it not be gendered?? “It’s really important that we systematically exclude 50% of the population from the politics, based on gender. But, like, it’s totally not gendered.”

That’s very gendered. How can it not be gendered?? Everything is gendered!!

Reminder: You are under no obligation to look pretty.

fandomsandfeminism:

Not when you are laying around the house, not when you go to the grocery store, not when you sit in a classroom, not when you go to the gym. You are never obligated to get dressed up just so you are pretty for others.

Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in the world as a woman.
