can we not use the term “breeders” to describe straight people or anyone at all because it’s Really Gross and reduces women to their reproductive capabilities ok thanks

it’s also pretty cissexist because it implies that only straight cis couples can reproduce which is incorrect

Are people seriously whining about someone’s carlos not being dark enough for them is this really something that’s going on

did you know that none of the characters except the apache tracker even have a canon race (i’m pretty sure)? i can make carlos a pale white guy who dyes his hair black and that’s not even whitewashing it’s just a personal fucking opinion

god damn it’s like the CAUCASIAN! update all over again

while Carlos’s race is not canon, he is described with “dark and delicate skin” in episode 16, so he’s definitely not a white dude.

“Sports fans have caused actual riots, but people still take sports seriously. Boy band fans scream at concerts, and suddenly they’re “a spectacle of the natural world.” Things that are made for women, particularly young women, are automatically given less respect. Girls who get interested in comic books or video games or science fiction get called “fake geek girls.”

Magazines and television and advertisements tell teenage girls that they should like certain things, and then other magazines tell girls that they’re stupid for liking those things. Then magazines publish articles and TV shows run specials wondering why teenage girls don’t have better self esteem, like they didn’t make it that way.

There’s nothing wrong with teenage girls being enthusiastic about boy bands or (heaven forbid) having sexual feelings about the boys in boy bands. There is something wrong with the way that other people react to teenage girls and their interests.” Boy Bands and Sexism: Can We Stop Hating Teenage Girls? (via brute-reason)

So I know the BMI is bullshit but out of curiosity I wanted to see what mine was so I went to a BMI calculator site for teenagers. It told me mine was healthy and said a lot of things like “good job!” and “keep it up!”. I was curious what it would say if I was overweight so I put in a weight about 20 pounds larger than mine. It told me that it was dangerous and I needed to change it and all of that. Then it listed some reasons why you should lose weight, and this was one of them.It literally acknowledges that thin privilege exists and even shows some examples of fat discrimination. But instead of the solution being to change the system, it’s to succumb to it, to lose weight and to just let it keep going.
