If someone tells me that it’s wrong to hope, I’ll tell them they’re wrong every time.

❝The reality is that fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in starving themselves, in engaging in unsafe exercise, and in seeking out weight loss by any means necessary. A thin person who does these things is considered mentally ill. A fat person who does these things is redeemed by them. This is why our culture has no concept of a fat person who also has an eating disorder. If you’re fat, it’s not an eating disorder — it’s a lifestyle change.❞

I will always reblog this because it is so so important.

I just want to nail this to every stable surface I can find. I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve seen fat folks being encouraged, cajoled, and even forced into behaviors that would be recognized as disordered eating/exercising patterns in thin folks. 

Pretty much everything that’s done on shows like The Biggest Loser would be called out as pro-ana/pro-orthorexia in a thin person. Exercising past the point that it hurts, to the point where you’re throwing up, even injuring yourself? Berating yourself because you didn’t lose ENOUGH weight this week? Constantly talking about how fat is weakness and thinness will make everything better, about how you can’t stand to be your current weight anymore? Emphasis on weight as a sign of how much control, strength, and worth you have? Viewing food as bad, as a temptation to sin? Constant sharing and talking about tips on how to minimize food intake, how to lose weight? 

That sounds exactly like every pro-ana/pro-mia blog I’ve ever seen. It’s also what fat people are told we need to be doing to ourselves until we’re thin.

GE wind turbines spinning among the mountains of Tehachapi, California.  

i love seeing those. I need to go take pictures of them again sometime. 

Oh, wow…I’ve driven past these so many times. We lived just north of them for the longest time, and our family we’d drive to visit was just south. I hated seeing them though, the hills of turbines made me feel carsick and sleepy. Even now I get that feeling just from the gif!

Ninety years ago on this date, April 17, 1924, three companies merged to form Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, better known as M-G-M, which would become the largest, wealthiest, and most prolific studio of Hollywood’s Golden Age. As founder Louis B. Mayer said, “I want to make beautiful pictures about beautiful people.”

Many of the most important and beloved American movies, including The Big Parade, Grand Hotel, The Wizard of Oz, and Singin’ in the Rain, to name just a few, were made at M-G-M. It has been estimated that about one fifth of movies ever made in the United States were partially shot at the studio. This footage comes from a behind-the-scenes tour short, made in 1925, soon after the establishment of M-G-M.
