Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat.
When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
This is where sexism and fat phobia meet for fat women. You not only have to worry about your physical safety but that your date might be afraid of meeting someone with your body type.

they say New orleans is haunted… this has proved the theory 100%
I bet it’s Old Man Withers trying to scare folks away so he can have the pirate’s treasure all to himself!

Here they all are, scrappily doodled in biro and markers on stolen paper, all in one place. I started out with cool-looking monster ones, and then… realised… that actually the best ones are the stupid ones. Hypgela nearly killed me.

Miley speaks for us all.
the face omg
Yeah, because Miley Cyrus should be throwing stones. Not that I don’t agree that was a superb diss.
Eh. It’s Justin “Anne Frank would’ve been a Bieliber” Bieber. After that one, Miley’s going to have to work pretty hard to be a worse mess than that little asshole.
I like Miley Cyrus a lot and always have. Her public persona has always been one of confidence, empowerment, facing your fears and following your passions. Her music may not be everyone’s cup of tea (I’m a pop music fan and I think she has a cool voice but YMMV), but since she was a wee teenager, she’s written consistently positive songs about how it’s okay to be flawed and be scared or worried that you’re not good enough and that it doesn’t make you less of a person to fail to live up to other people’s ideals.
Generally speaking, she’s articulate, outspoken, funny, and largely unconcerned with the media’s creepy micro-criticism of her style, her body and her decision-making. I think that is a valuable message to send to young girls.
She is also passionate about LGBT rights, to the extent that she got a tattoo in support of marriage equality last year and rallies her fans to not support companies that donate to anti-gay lobbyists.
Soooo I kinda do think she can afford to throw a stone or two. :)
[F]or the first several years the SAT was offered, males scored higher than females on the Math section but females achieved higher scores on the Verbal section. ETS policy-makers determined that the Verbal test needed to be “balanced” more in favor of males, and added questions pertaining to politics, business and sports to the Verbal portion. Since that time, males have outscored females on both the Math and Verbal sections. Dwyer notes that no similar effort has been made to “balance” the Math section, and concludes that, “It could be done, but it has not been, and I believe that probably an unconscious form of sexism underlies this pattern. When females show the superior performance, ‘balancing’ is required; when males show the superior performance, no adjustments are necessary.”

And then people urge me everything is fine, of course it is, when you’re ignoring statistics that is.

And that’s the most frustrating thing about depression. It isn’t always something you can fight back against with hope. It isn’t even something — it’s nothing. And you can’t combat nothing. You can’t fill it up. You can’t cover it. It’s just there, pulling the meaning out of everything. That being the case, all the hopeful, proactive solutions start to sound completely insane in contrast to the scope of the problem.
It would be like having a bunch of dead fish, but no one around you will acknowledge that the fish are dead. Instead, they offer to help you look for the fish or try to help you figure out why they disappeared.
I almost reblogged a neat caterpillar but just before I hit post I realized it was actually a penis with metal bands around it covered in blood.
Congrats Yahoo on your recent purchase!
