The reality is that fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in...– Lesley Kinzel (via curvesahead) I just want to nail this to every stable surface I can find. I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve seen fat folks being encouraged, cajoled, and even forced into behaviors that would be recognized as disordered eating/exercising patterns in thin folks. ...
A good amount of pro choice people are dicks
thecultofcraze: Oh, absolutely. Biggest dicks on the planet, us pro-choice people. But, truthfully, I tend to get just a little bit irritated when I’m basically being told that I’m nothing more than a human incubator, and that a fetus that can’t feel, cannot survive outside the womb, has no cognitive thinking ability, and may not even be humanoid in shape has more rights than I do. I also get...
shakethecobwebs: sofarfromshameless: Actually, I can kind of understand this a little. JUST A LITTLE THOUGH AND HERE’S WHY. I’m considered thin by fat folks. I’m considered “thick/chubby/*various words for not-skinny*” by thin folks. I’m considered downright obese by REALLY thin folks (my aunt, to be specific). The thing, is, I’m not thin. I’m not fat. I’m stuck in the middle of thin and...

Paramount will release the retelling of Noah’s Ark on March 28, 2014. I miss the time when Russell Crowe made good movies.
Me Writing Horoscopes for Elle Canada
rejectedjokes: Elle Canada asked me to write something for their magazine, so I went to my friend Sophia Rossi for advice as to what was in “Elle Canada.” She said, “Ben, you should write fake horoscopes.” So I did…and here they are. Enjoy and thank you to Sophia for the advice and Susan for showing me that this craziness was actually printed. Click on the photo below to see the horoscopes in...

sonic-hip-attack: goodreasonnews: Brynne, Tess and Savannah from Phoenix are black belts in karate, expert horseback riders and avid musical theater fans. And they perform exorcisms. “We’re just normal girls who do something extraordinary for God,” Brynne said. “After seeing an actual exorcism in person, led by us, you will walk away with no doubt, whatsoever.” I’m just happy some clever...

BMI is bullshit. Health ≠ the number on the scale! (via stophatingyourbody) Per the abstract, the healthy habits tracked were eating 5 or more...
I have something in my eye.
But I looked in the mirror and there’s nothing there. It might be a scratch. Or it might be that an insect laid eggs on my eye and now there’s an itty bitty larva boring into the sclera.
janedoe225: An open letter to Ann Romney Dear Mrs. Romney, Perhaps you can advise me. Since you have raised 5 boys, I’m sure you’ll understand. One of the kids is sick again and I have no sick days left at work. In fact, my boss gave me a bad performance review and no raise this year because he said I obviously don’t care that much about my job since I’ve missed so many...
