I’ve been following you nearly as long as I’ve had a tumblr and I think you’re really pretty and have an incredible sense of style
White people: You have to wait for the facts before you talk about Ferguson!
Eyewitnesses: He was on his knees with his hands up.
Medical examiner: There was no gunpowder residue on Mike Brown, no sign of struggle, and there were entry wounds on the inside of his arms and the top of his head, implying he was on his knees with his hands up.
Convenience store owner and clerk: There was no robbery and we didn't call the cops.
Ferguson PD: Okay, we admit it, Wilson didn't know anything happened at the convenience store and we determined no crime was committed.
White people: Nobody can say what happened! We still have to wait for the facts to come in!
whenever teddy lupin spends time in muggle london, random strangers will go up to him and ask where he goes to get his hair dyed bc “it looks so authentic!” and he just smiles and says “my mum”
i am thankful for tumblr and selfie culture because i have the ability to just open my web browser and visually experience a diversity of bodies and looks, being presented the way they want to be, in a way i never had growing up.
seeing fat women, curvy women, women of color, queer women, controlling their image and oozing self love and adoration has seriously inspired me to change my motivations from changing my appearance to fit a socially constructed ideal to changing my outlook to fit myself.
in some ways, it saddens me that i have to put forth so much extra effort to surround myself with diverse images of women, and that i have seriously had to bombard myself with them for any internalization of body positivity to take place, but ultimately i’m thankful for every moment of unlearning of the confinements of patriarchal beauty, because that unlearning has been absolutely central in my progress on a path to self-acceptance and love.
