Ask me anything!
This is a series of ads from the early 20th century right up to the 1970s.
You might notice what they’re advertising is, instead of the weight loss solutions we’re used to today, they’re actually advertising weight GAIN.
‘It’s hard to believe they once called me skinny!’
‘Skinny girls are NOT glamour girls!’
‘a skinny, scarecrow figure is neither fashionable nor glamourous!’
‘thousands quickly gaining beauty-bringing pounds!’
Notice how less than a hundred years ago, these ads were meant to shame thin bodies the way weight loss ads shame fat bodies today? Notice that how as time goes by, the ‘ideal’ body shape changes from era to era? Notice how in these ads as well as those seen today, they’re meant to make people feel bad about the way they look?
These ads are just as bad as the ones that run today. They’re meant to shame you and make you feel inadequate for one sole reason: so you go out and spend money on their products. It’s not about your self esteem, your health, or your happiness. It’s about selling the product. It’s about making the money.
Your body is NOT wrong. You don’t need pills, diets, or supplements to make you happy, attractive, or ‘right’. All bodies are good bodies. It doesn’t matter if you’re skinny, fat, tall, short, disabled, scarred, anything at all.
Do not let the media dictate what you think you should be. The media is fickle. It does not care about you. Don’t let yourself care about what it says.
It sucks when someone you have feelings for doesn’t share those feelings; it happens to women all the time, too. We hear “I just want to be friends” and “you’re like one of the guys” and “you’re like a sister to me” just as often. But you’ll never hear a woman complain that guys just don’t appreciate a Nice Girl because we’re taught it’s our own fucking fault when we’re rejected—we aren’t pretty enough or thin enough or sexy enough, we weren’t sexual enough or were too sexual, we put out too much or too little or too soon or not soon enough, we didn’t wear our hair the right way or our skirt the right length, we’re “too tomboyish” or “too butch” or “too feminine”, or we’re “not their type”, or we’re otherwise not good enough in various ways to entice the man to grace us with his affection.
But when we’re not interested in someone, we’re vilified. We’re the bitch that lead them on, the bitch who let them buy us dinner but didn’t want to date them, the bitch who doesn’t appreciate a nice guy, the bitch they were nice to and then got nothing in return from.
And, frankly, fuck those people. Showing interest in me, being friendly with me, getting close to me, or eating a meal with me (even if they paid for it) doesn’t obligate me to open my heart or my legs. And anyone who doesn’t appreciate my friendship sure as hell doesn’t deserve my love or my pussy.”
If we’re dating there is like a 90% chance that I’ll watch your tv shows with you and make out with you during commercial breaks and fall asleep on your lap halfway through the program.
do you ever just start mentally plotting out a story and you suddenly come up with that one scene or that one line and you just think
this will be the scene that makes everyone cry
u bitches better reblog this i worked really hard on it
Wait! Does that mean…
PLEASE TELL ME I AM WRONG
but how about this post with the terrible tags telling you that this:
and then it just gets worse because her little pause before she says “the baby” because why would she hesitate to tell his that Jackie is preganent? but she could never tell so she gives him this one lie and jesus just go read it (X)
#let me tell you something about this scene okay #her little pause before she says ‘and the baby’ #like she’s not sure if she’s going to say it #but then she figures okay why not say it I’ve got nothing left to lose #and that little smile on her face when she does #because for all the heartache she’s feeling right now and has felt since she and the Doctor were separated #there’s this one thing that will always keep them together #but then the Doctor says ‘you’re not…?’#it’s this look of sheer terror and sadness on his face #that is not the face of a man who thinks the woman he loves is pregnant with another man’s child #he thinks she’s pregnant with his child #and now she’s trapped in a parallel world where he will never be able to reach her #but if she’d told him right then and there that she was pregnant with his child he would have torn both universes apart to get to them #and he can’t do that because he has to protect the universe and stay detached and nothing should cloud his vision #and Rose knows that because she knows him better than anyone so seeing that look on his face she says ‘it’s mum’s’ #and then that look of relief on his face is worth the lie #they only have two minutes and sometimes a lie is kinder than the truth
So I was mucking around trying to collect resources for my mashup (shhhh it’s coming along just v slowly) and this happened omg
it just takes some time ✌
