Just very small town Canadian girl. This tumblr is just random stuff I'm interested in. Which right now, at least, is James May, mostly. With some Richard Hammond and Top Gear thrown in. Maybe some Whitechapel, The Blacklist, Game of Thrones, Person of Interest and Duran Duran as well. And kittens. Or maybe not.
Re: following--feel free to follow me. At the moment, I'm mostly only following Top Gear focussed blogs.
Also, please note: I will not follow blogs of people that I know are under the age of 18--and if there is nothing to indicate your age on your blog and I don't know you well, then I won't follow you/follow you back. Personal policy, sorry.
let’s play another tag meme thing! put each word into your tags and see what pops up:
it’s the scottish independence referendum tomorrow
or as i like to call it
the great british break off
The thing is: when someone calls you too skinny, that hurts. It’s inappropriate, hurtful, and makes you self conscious. But at the end of the day, you pick up a magazine, you turn on the TV, you go on the internet on a gossip site - what do you see? Women who look like you. Women who have a body that recalls yours, women who are considered the standards of beauty to which all must follow to be considered beautiful. You go to a store, and odds are you can find clothes that are in your size. Odds are you don’t have go to stores dedicated to people your size, clothes that might not be as cute and are definitively more expensive.
When you’re fat, not only does it hurt, but society just confirms it day after day. You flip on TV, you read a magazine, and there are no women in your size. Nobody with a body like yours, nobody modeling clothes or being called gorgeous. You go to a store, and you can’t find clothes that fit you - and even if you do find things in larger sizes, they still don’t LOOK right, don’t fit right, cause they were designed for thinner girls in mind, and making these clothes in larger sizes doesn’t mean it’s going to look good on your body. You’re told you’re ugly by a piece of shit and basically the world you live in says back, well, yeah, that’s true.
That’s the difference. No, people making comments about your body are ALWAYS unwelcome and gross, but a thin person and fat person still live in the same society that caters and upholds thinness as a standard of beauty. That doesn’t change, and that’s why it’s not the same.

well I don’t understand physics but you don’t see me floating off into space because gravity no longer applies to me
It would be really weird living in this world and believing only in the things you understand. I mean, stop and really think about that for a moment. Think of all the things you only have a vague working knowledge of and the things you flat out don’t understand.
