The sexism in society that decides how a woman should use makeup is just mind-boggling. If she wears what is deemed too much makeup, she’s told she doesn’t need all that and to tone it down. And if she doesn’t wear any makeup at all, the same parties have ample suggestions about how she can adorn and improve her bare face. Makeup is presented as something women are REQUIRED to wear, but only in the “right” amounts (and those amounts always change). Neither scenario addresses how the woman feels happiest about herself.

…focus in on your weirdness, your passions, and your fucked-up damage, and be yourself as truly as you can. Express that with as much craft, discipline, and rigor as you can; work as hard as you can to build a career out of that, and then you’ll create a career that you love and that’s true to yourself…

Reject the notion that you are supposed to be at a certain place by now.

Don’t measure yourself to some colloquial set of social constructions.

Just realized how big a difference there is between “windbreaker” and “breaking wind” and burst out laughing.

Shout out to the deathfat babes on tumblr! I love y’all. You’re beautiful and inspiring and I’m proud to be one of you.

IT IS GETTING BETTER

When I first read about this woman’s plan I thought it was a strong idea but I was worried that it was a little bit much for one person, no matter how dedicated, to keep it up for too long, especially since she has, you know, college to commit to. I never thought about how, if other people helped her carry her burden, I never thought about how much it would look like pallbearers with a coffin. Which is simply one of the strongest visual symbols one can use to disturb people in the western world.


That’s so powerful. Good for them!
