People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am. 

You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.

Ok so i’ve just seen this on my timeline on twitter and quite frankly I’m angry. This is in london and the metropolitan police here are known to be racist. With all that’s going on in America right now i thought I’d shed some light on what’s happening here in the UK. While its illegal to bear arms in this country, the systematic racism and discrimination still remains against black people, men in particular. Racial profiling is an epidemic and with social media at the forefront it’s been easier to really see how often this occurs, Please re blog this and spread this on your dashboard! These racist authorities need to be exposed!

Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.

I AM SEETHING.  FUCK THE CONTINUATION OF ASSIMILATION EFFORTS AND ASSAULT ON THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING OF NATIVE AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLE. 
THIS COUNTRY HAS NO SHAME
NO CONSCIENCE
NO HISTORICAL BEARING
HAS AMERICA FORGOTTEN SO SOON?
THE TRAGEDY OF NATIVE CHILDREN FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES FOR RACIST BOARDING SCHOOLS?
WHERE THEIR HAIR WAS CUT? WHERE CHILDREN WERE BEATEN FOR SPEAKING THEIR MOTHER TONGUES? WHERE THEY WERE ABUSED AND FORCED TO HIDE THEIR CULTURE AS A WAY TO SURVIVE? 
NEVER FORGET. NEVER.

people will always call out people for saying “fuck skinny bitches” but when the diet commercial comes on, when the fat jokes are being made, when conversations about how fat people are detriments to society are underway, when a size 6 expects her size 26 friend to go with…

This particular type of chamomile unfortunately brought back some unpleasant memories (I self-medicated with it for a few months, so the smell is a trigger), but I was really craving the tea, which is unusual, so I brewed a cup. 

And then I threw away the last, untouched, bag. 

I’m in a good place.

did some good tweets today i think

This is just something I’ve been thinking about the past few days; it’s not targeted at anyone in particular. I’ve just been reading some really ignorant comments about these songs that skew fat positive (not just body positive — fat positive), and how “skinny shaming” has apparently become a thing and I couldn’t roll my eyes harder than I already have.

Like, I have literally been around women who have sighed over how skinny I am, which is baffling. No sighs over a woman with a thick middle. No one stares at envy at another woman’s rolls. Fat women need shine, too.

I don’t get offended by Nicki saying, “Fuck them skinny bitches in the club” or Meghan Trainor telling skinny chicks to move aside because if I want representation, I don’t have to look far to get it. I can literally open up any type of media and see a woman of my size looking back at me with various positive references to her size. When was the last time fat women had that kind of privilege?

Like, whenever you want to get in your feelings about being told to eat a cheeseburger, think of the tens of thousands of young girls who are encouraged/forced to diet before the age of 10 thanks to beauty standards that do not support anyone over a size 6.
