Ask me anything!




this guy was watching the vmas with me and now he’s educating himself how precious is that

he keeps asking me all these questions about aspects of feminism and he’s like “so basically it’s about letting women do what they want without being judged for it” and I was like yea and he was like “oh okay that’s so simple why isn’t everyone a feminist” it’s precious

update: I banged him

I’ll marry a person who knows how I take my tea, coffee, and alcohol
And knows when to make which.





Behind the Scenes of “All About That Bass” +

How are skinny girls supposed to feel love when your song is about loving only fat bodies?

I’m sorry, but how are fat girls supposed to feel when every advertisement, be it on television or in a magazine, when nearly every movie, shows only thin women? I am completely against body shaming, but the fact remains that there is very little positive representation for bigger girls. Thin women are considered the norm and are far more accepted and you see them everywhere you look in the media. So please, don’t take this the wrong way, but please just let me have a song that makes me, for once, feel good about my body.

ive also noticed that people always focus on one particular line of this song which apparently makes it “skinny shaming”


but nobody ever acknowledges the following lines?


the main theme of the song is giving love to larger women because larger women are so commonly shamed for their bodies, ignored by the media and generally given less love and acceptance than thinner women, but the song in its entirety is a message that all women are beautiful. People are failing to acknowledge that

in 4th grade we were making clay pots in art and our teacher kept saying “make them thinner! those are too thick they won’t work” so we made them thinner and when she put then in the kiln they all exploded and she told us it was our fault because we made them too thin and if that doesn’t describe the school system i don’t know what does

Please help me raise money for top surgery  


Hi, I’m Charlie/Bandit I’m 17 and I live in Seattle and I really need help raising money for top surgery!!

I’m ‘homeless’ (technically considered couch surfing despite the fact that im certain my housing is currently stable aside from threats from my mother) living with my partner and their family here and working with my case manager to try and get emancipated as soon as possible. 

My mom is abusive and threatens me constantly and tried kidnapping me a few months ago. I stopped living with her when i was 14 (lived with an aunt, then my dad, then a friend, then a family friend, and now my partner for over a year) and am now 17 and doing fine on my own aside from constant threats. I have an internship going to turn into a job, am a senior in high school, have social workers i meet with weekly. 

Onto the surgery talk, getting it covered by the state insurane i currently have would be really hard with none of my doctors bothering to take note of my backpain because apparently if youre a teenager you cant have back pain? Right? And even if they did I can only get taken down to a C cup. unless i can manage to talk so doctors into insurance fraud (doesnt seem all too likely).

My breasts are 30K cups. They’re really immensely painful, if I can feel anything in them at all. After getting breast exams and going to doctors for the pain they recommended trying for breast reduction surgery, or getting more supportive bras (which are nearly impossible to find in my size, and the ones i can find i cant afford) I cant really feel anything touching the skin just pressure and constant soreness/bruises. Theyre lumpy and ‘weirdly dense’ and are 100% stretch marks but my doctors don’t seem to think theres anything too wrong with them aside from that (though i have to go to a specialist now for some possible gland issues but they said its “almost definitely something not to worry about i wont need surgery or anything”). But really dense K cups are really heavy, like really heavy. And its awful. I can feel them pulling on my shoulders and back all the time. I can hardly stand up straight, I go from being 6’3 to like 5’9 with how much I hunch to try and keep my back comfortable . Forget about not having to wear a bra 100% of the time so much as taking a shower can leave them and my shoulders sore and weak. Even if I try and sleep without a bra I wake up in too much pain and usually have crushed one of them in the night and bruised them.

When I’m on my period (which is almost 100% of the time for some reason, that no birth control has been able to help) theyre so sore that a light touch can leave me crying. I mean normally if you poke them at all it can bruise them but on my period its fucking ridiculous.

I cant bind because it leaves them so sore and in so much pain and leaves me unable to breathe. and it only takes me down to like a c cup anyways so its not worth the pain and feeling like im going to break a rib and stop breathing. Im stuck trying to hide my chest the best I can with layers and shitty ‘medium’ size sports bras  from target that dont even really fit, they hold them up just enough but it doesn’t really work and it sucks.

It would be hella rad if people could help me out with top surgery and stuff cause I really need it a lot.


Please, please consider donating to me or signal boosting this so i can get top surgery or at least get a bra in my size or something.

Interesting how we’re always hearing how shameful and irresponsible it is to be a teen mom.

But we never hear the same messages directed at teen dads.

Or even the words “teen dad”.

It’s almost like society demonizes women’s sexuality and sexual choices while absolving men of all sexual responsibility and judgement.
