so i met with some organizers tonight and i don’t want to go into details because this isn’t the place
but there is one woman who used air quotes when using the word privilege
and i’m just not happy about working with someone like that
everyone else was cool though but yeah ew no stop
also like just generally not getting it and no
okay so i’m trying to transition to pescetarian/vegetarian lifestyle right?
so here’s a thing i can’t figure out.
is it wrong to eat leftover meat that’s already in my fridge? i live with my boyfriend, he eats meat and even though he doesn’t mind that i’ve started only preparing meals without meat he still eats meat whenever. so even though i’ve made the decision that that’s not something i want to support, when there’s one piece of chicken left on his plate can i not eat it?
fuck i mean on the one hand this is just a judgment call and on the other hand if you are more rigid then it’s a blatant no but this is like a confusing thing where it seems like it would be a waste of food MEH i don’t know
i’m just nothing but self-loathing today
add in some street harassment and contact with my good for nothing father
and i’m just angst grief and shame in a dress
Decided, wish I had halfway decent handwriting though..
I’m thinking about phasing meat out of my diet and i know a lot of my mutuals are vegetarians/vegans so i was wondering if anyone had any tips, advice or resources they felt like passing along.
this will be a really slow transition for me because nutrition decisions are very hard and personal with my history/struggles with ED, so i’m not interested in any graphic images guilting me into transitioning faster. this is the best i can do. i am planning on keeping fish and eggs in my diet for a while, and once i’m comfortable with that maybe i’ll reassess.
i AM interested in what the easiest/hardest parts were and good, cheap ways to find protein for my new diet. i AM interested in just about anything that isn’t too graphic.
radioactivevikings said: Wow pressed the ask button before I could ask. Okay correct me if I am naive but can Obama do anything about the ferguson issue? Or am I just hopeful.
Let me say first my problems with Obama are far beyond what he can or can’t do as far as Ferguson is concerned. Obama is more hawkish than most liberals or leftists realize and there are a lot of issues I have with him. I’m glad he’s president as opposed to McCain or Romney, OBVIOUSLY, but I am not his defender by any means.
That said, no. There’s nothing he can do right now. It pisses me off like crazy that he won’t at the very least show some anger, but there’s a federal investigation of Mike Brown’s case right now and if any POTUS says anything about any federal investigations it can be seen as tampering. So I begrudgingly have to admit his hands are tied.
Once he can do something though, I doubt he will. After Zimmerman was acquitted it’s not like he was suddenly open and honest about how much race impacts every aspect of life in America. Obama refuses to use the word “racism” for fear of dividing an already divided country.
To sum, I recognize he can’t do anything right now but I expect nothing. He’s been a big ass disappointment.
I’m now getting some ugly messages on anon. I’m going to see a movie tonight and I’ve decided to leave my anon on, but if I come home to any more hate I’ll be shutting it off for a good while.
I’m not going to publish these asks. I’ve ignored the users and I just didn’t want to look at them any longer than I had to. But let me make something clear as shit. CRYSTAL FUCKING CLEAR.
I am not trying to be a person of color. I make a point to avoid appropriative behavior exhibited by people like good old Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry. If I’m appropriative I apologize and change my behavior. THAT is “trying to be a person of color.”
I’m not calling all white people racist. I’ve been accused of being self-loathing and some other uglier ways of saying this. I’m just acknowledging that white people are the ones in power therefore we are part of the problem.
I do not think I am a special snowflake. I understand that I have to raise voices of persons of color, not my own. This is against my nature because I’m just very opinionated but I’m trying. I don’t think I’m the best white person ever.
I’m not a secret white supremacist? I don’t even know where that one came from, honestly.
And as for all of the other ugly offensive words thrown at me honestly fuck you. You’re clearly racist fucks and you are the fucking problem and I’m done here.
I’m going to a movie. Don’t send me hate, because all I’ll do is ignore it and shut off my anon.

Are you seriously back with this shit?
No. I’m absolutely not. I’m a white girl who recognizes her privilege and wants to end it.
I just reopened my fucking anon and more of this? Quit it.
I have messages and replies to respond to but I’ve overspent my spoons, I’ll to to you all soon and you’re great
okay should i have hot chocolate or go to sleep
i’m so upset
i just got off the phone w/my dad
and i’m really on the verge of hysterical
and i know that i’m probably putting all of my stress in this one area
but i’m freaking out
i can’t breathe
i can’t stand myself
Also any tips for what my sign should say Saturday? I’m going to a march for Eric Garner.
I need to think of something appropriate for a white girl to hold. Obviously I’m not Eric Garner or Mike Brown, I want a sign that acknowledges my privilege instead of ignoring it. Open to suggestions?
Let me make something very clear, women do not need to look to men for self worth. Please, please, please. Just don’t.
We don’t need to cover up when it’s hot out. We don’t need to dress “sexy” if we don’t want to. We are by no means responsible for a grown man’s behavior. We accept no blame for “distracting” men. Our fashion choices, from short shorts to sweatpants, do not need the approval of men. We are not something for men to look at. We are not bodies for strangers to judge.
We are women, and we don’t owe men a damned thing.
last night i saw what if with my friend and my SO
and we were leaving the theater and i totally blacked out, couldn’t see a thing and just leaned against the wall for what felt like hours
and the rest of the night i spent trying not to throw up or pass out
and i’m just angry
i hate being sick
i hate my body not being reliable
it all makes me mad
Anonymous said: No, you're showing all the hateful things that white people are doing or have been doing with this. There are so many HELPFUL things they are doing too. You just want to continue with white supremacy. Not every white person is a supremacist. I know you're not one. After a while it comes off as offensive.
a.) how is showing what white people are doing wrong continuing supremacy?
c.) white people are the problem, there’s no getting around that. and as a white person it’s tempting to shy away from that but i won’t, i acknowledge it.
