Also let’s campaign to end the general patronising of young people, especially children because children have fantastic, honest, open and creative minds and you stifle that when you patronise them and refuse to listen. Big time.
I can not stand being patronised when i’m talking bout shit i know better than some stuffy old people - like I appreciate you think your life and experience makes you the holy grail but i have actually personally grown up in these times so I think my opinion is kinda more relevant if we’re talking about people of my generation and pls just can we stop this idea that if you’re young you don’t know shit cos it’s just ultra patronising and condescending and infuriating
Am gonna go on a one man charity shop trip around birm tomorrow to look for gifts and clothes and paintings and things for when i eventually move house and hopefully some cute bedding and I’m sort of looking forwards to mooching about on my own with music and without the need for conversation.
Tumblr has taught me a lot - I think before this I would have considered myself an open, tolerant/accepting person but so much of your behaviour, language and so on can be subtly (and sometimes overwhelmingly) oppressive or upsetting or stigmatising without you even realising and I am thankful for tumblr showing me the problematic aspects of things I used to enjoy ‘cos sometimes it really does take a different perspective to show you the fault in your/others’ ways.
i can’t stop eating, also can’t start caring i wanna smoke and light candles and talk shit about nothing and someone needs to dye my hair, i’ll draw you something crap/paint your nails (poorly) in return
Men want us to kiss them with beards, suck their dicks and kiss their balls with pubes, hug them with hairy arm pits, intwine our legs with hairy thighs, but if women have one hair on our body that isn’t on our head it’s disgusting
I get sad when I think about all the girls in my school who used to get labelled massive sluts because they were all impressionable, vulnerable people who were often exploited by boys en masse and then not only had to live with the consequences of that attention, but also faced a lot of hostility from other people who thought they were just slags who slept with taken boys, rather than going hang on why’s this committed 18 yo sleeping with a 15 yo?
thank you, I hope I can become confident with my own body too honestly you've made me feel a bit better knowing you've felt the same :) X
Yeah I had real troubles with the way I felt from about the age of 9 until 6 months ago? So I can totally understand how traumatic and consuming feeling that way can be, because you constantly feel like you stick out but tbh most people don’t care about what people look like, cos if you think about it, I bet you hardly ever think anything about the way someone looks and if you do, you’ve probably forgotten by the end of the day. Once I sort of recognised that people weren’t looking or laughing at me, life became a lot easier. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I suggest following lots and lots of babes with bodies like yours so you can remind yourself that it’s possible to look/feel attractive at those sizes, and eventually it begins to rub off on you! Good luck bab, lemme know how it goes x
Goin shoppin with my favourite pal tomorrow and I want to buy some outrageous crop tops and get some heart sunglasses for summa and then we’re gonna make hair masks and face masks and get high and drink a bit and i can’t wait cos she’s my no.1
you have such a good body and I am so so jealous. i'm 15 and i'm quite big and I just hate my body. X
Ow thank you! I used to feel like that when I was 15, and other than being about like 2 inches taller my body is exactly the same, my perspective has just changed and trusttt me what you see, whilst being my body, is an idealistic representation of it because you don’t get to see me covered in food with bad skin and my hair all knotted and a big ol’ (cute) jelly belly and basically, your body’s gonna change over the years and the amount of flesh on your bones doesn’t determine your importance or worth and you can feel beautiful at any size and I hope hope hope you get to become comfortable in your own skin like I have in mine.
