the worst thing about being shy and introverted as that you most of the time come off as cold and arrogant like you think you’re better than everyone else and thats why you don’t talk to people or hang out with them but it’s really the opposite its like you’re so uncomfortable with yourself that you don’t wanna share it with anyone else so you just dont and people think you’re an asshole but you’re actually just really scared
So much for that really feminist video she made for “Hard Out Here” huh? You know, the one that black feminists and other feminists of colour and their allies said was anything but. Where’s your god now white feminists who praised this video…WHERE IS YOUR GOD.
It pisses me the fuck off when people (and 90% of the time it’s dudes) belittle things like anorexia and bulimia as “first world Hollywood problems” because like.
Okay, Hollywood and the music and fashion industries have spent decades pushing the ultra-skinny look on the rest of the world, but it’s really fucking obvious that not everyone looks like that, or even has the capacity to look like that because of various inherited traits. People with these disorders are purposely harming themselves to be able to fit into the mold, and it’s a big deal if they manage to break free of them.
I remember when a friend of mine, after having been in the hospital on and off for months, called me up and said “My mom is taking us to Olive Garden, and I’m going to have dressing and a breadstick with my salad.”
And then she made me go with her so that she’d have more than one witness to something she’d been working on for weeks.
Eating disorders are a serious problem, and they can happen to anyone, especially someone who is browbeaten and harped on so much, they feel like that’s the only thing in their lives that they have some sort of control of.
