if i as a retail worker have to work with a dozen cameras pointed at me to deter me from stealing $10, cops should have to work with a camera pointed at them to deter them from arbitrarily maiming and killing people
Okay please don’t get me wrong, I understand that the occasional negative comment on your weight is personally hurtful to you. I am in no way saying that you are not allowed to feel hurt or victimised by people who choose to be nasty about your weight/size, because you totally are.
You surely understand, however, that no matter how many times you are told to “eat a cheeseburger”, you can turn on any television channel, open any magazine, refresh any social media page, and see your body type upheld as ‘perfect’, ‘the picture of health’, ‘more attractive’ etc, whereas larger women often have to go out of their way to see their bodies portrayed in a positive light, rather than displayed as a ‘Before’ image in a weight loss ad, right?
Once again, I acknowledge my own thin privilege too, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna get mad when Nicki Minaj writes a song for fat girls instead of for me, for once in my life.
"And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it’s time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man can’t make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
So will the real men get up
I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your head up”

You look so tired and unhappy
Bring down the government
They don’t, they don’t speak for us
I’ll take a quiet life

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
