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.

I’VE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR A LONG TIME THAT EATING DISORDERS AND SELF-HARM AND SELF-HATE ARE ENCOURAGED IN FAT PEOPLE.

Not to mention the shit that’s in diet pills and things. So many of the diseases that are commonly associated with “obesity” especially heart-related stuff have their roots in weight cycling (losing and gaining weight quickly), diet pill ephedrines and other unsafe weight loss behaviours. The fact that enough fat people have these kinds of diseases to make a lot of health care professionals and researchers think that weight causes them shows how many people have tried to lose weight in this way.

This is why I stress group economics.
We make everyone wealthy except for ourselves.

i’m gonna need you to calm your ankh down though bruh, because it’s not like black people in america are NOT starting their own businesses. many black people are self starters and innovators, whether you or society chooses to recognize them or not. there also is a historical struggle for black business owners to retain customers and credibility because of racism. people assume (black people included because of internalizing) that a black business is cheap, unworthy or not official compared to their competitors and they use their buying power elsewhere. that’s something you really should consider before blaming the structural poverty of black people on the fact that not enough of us are becoming business owners. *sucks teeth*

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Y’all missing the point.
The post didn’t say start your own business or die. It provides perspective on our purchase power. If we used more financial discipline and supported more black businesses we could build up our communities so that we don’t have to beg other groups for jobs.
WHY WOULD YOU RESORT TO NAME CALLING AND BASHING A POST ABOUT UPLIFTING OUR COMMUNITIES AND CREATING MORE JOB OPPORTUNITIES???
Let’s go there….

because this person is a fuckwit.   If this information were reversed, if a Chinese American Council called a meeting to wit these numbers were presented, how long do you think they’d take before developing and enacting a business plan to address a serious issue of money outflow? Days? Weeks? Months? Years?
This information has been presented to Black people, politicians, community leaders, business leaders and they plan to act on that info next neveruary.  Niggas talkin about they wanna be free, but don’t wanna control their own money.  FOH withcha bullshit mayne. 
Dr. Claude Anderson “Powernomics” been around since 2001, niggas act like they never heard of it.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

so did you read the bolded or nah?
I’m guessing nah.

"Dr. Claude Anderson Powernomics been around since 2001, niggas act like they never heard of it."
And apparently niggas ain’t never heard of how anti-blackness, gentrification, redlining, prison industrial complex all play a part in Black people not having the resources to control their own money. Apparently niggas out here thinking Black folks are choosing to be oppressed, y’all niggas sure took to that new black mentality awfully quick.

Agreed. sounds like bootstraps 101.

The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.

Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)

It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.

I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit. 

Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.

Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.

"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)

Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them

Can you imagine all of the people whose lives would be so different now if those kits had only been tested in a timely manner? All those people who would never have to define themselves as “victims” or even “survivors.”

I always find it interesting how the world will shit on African people while simultaneously stealing and mimicking African culture. 
 
They called Africans who stretched their earlobes “primitive” then proceeded to copy it.
 
Remember that “dreads” were seen as derogatory ?
Whites would call it dreadful, dirty, ugly ETC…

African women been carrying Babies on their back since for ever.
There was criticism for that now that got “baby carriers”

They used to make fun of African Women’s BIG LIPS and ASSES now EVERYBODY want a big lips and big asses. 

White people have been obsessed with Africans ever since we came in contact don’t ever forget that. So obsessed they had to get their hands on your continent.

Now we running around here ashamed of our own people and our own heritage like fools.

The thing that made Lilo a “freak” was her passion. Lilo was passionate about everything she ever did. She was passionate about Elvis, about feeding the ocean fish sandwiches, about making friends, about taming Stitch, and about Hula. Look at her smile. She is the only one who seems to be truly enjoying what she’s doing. It adds life. Passion is life. It’s vitality. It’s amazing. Be a Lilo.
