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!!

adults: “what are your plans for the summer?” “what are you planning on studying in college?” “what do you want to do in the future?”
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.
