things i really need to fucking tell body shamers
  • you don’t get to talk shit about another person’s body
  • unless you’re that person’s doctor, you don’t get to make assumptions about someone’s health
  • what another person eats is none of your fucking business
  • did you know that people could be working out every day and still be the size they are?
  • when someone celebrates their body, it doesn’t mean that we’re attacking anyone else
  • do you really think calling someone fat is helping them? 
  • if so, what is wrong with you?
  • you have no idea what someone has been through/is going through, and guessing things based on what they look like is A+ asshole behavior
  • believe it or not, there are people out there who love people for who they are - and no, it’s not because they have a certain size fetish
  • jokes about someone being able to ‘skip a few meals’ are a) shitty and b) not funny at all
  • how someone looks isn’t indicative of what they’re worth
  • telling people they’re being ‘too sensitive’ when you’re ripping into their bodies is just the worst
  • people can wear whatever the fuck they want and don’t need to ask for your permission (see, bikinis)
  • judging a pregnant woman’s body because you think you know what’s best is R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S
  • the fact that YOU don’t like someone’s body is not an important opinion to share, so don’t waste your energy
  • because being happy is more important than fitting into someone else’s idea of beautiful
  • and one more time for the people in the back: It. Is. Not. Your. Body.

“Every conversation with you just goes mental. There’s no one else I can talk to. I’ve seen all that stuff up there, the size of it, and I can’t say a word. Aliens and spaceships and things, and I’m the only person on planet Earth who knows they exist.”

What I love about tumblr
  • Science side:"The knots in planetary nebula NGC 5189 each measure roughly the size of our solar system."
  • Religious side:*speaking calmly* Let us say grace to our Lord.
  • We heart it/Just Girly things, etc:oh, look at how beautiful that cup of coffee is, and the sound of the rain on the roof, and the raindrops rolling down the window...

“My being thin did not make me happy. My having a six-pack was, well, me having a six-pack. Being a size 4 made it infinitely easier to shop for clothes and presumably to look "better” in clothes, because let’s face it, clothes are mostly designed for people who are a size 4. Being a size 4 made strangers’ heads turn. Repeatedly. It made men in the grocery store hit on me and doctors at the hospital propose torrid affairs. It made me obsessive about every detail of my body, from my stretch-marked belly to the definition of my bicep.

It made me a lot of things. 

It did not make me happy.

It made me obsessed with my workouts, with how much time I could fit in at the gym between taking care of three small kids and working 12-hour overnight shifts. It made me Google every food for its calorie content. It made me eat food I hated (rice cakes, spray-on butter) and avoid food I loved (mostly cake). All of that made me thin.It did not make me happy.

This isn’t to say that thin people aren’t happy (duh), but this is to say that being thin is not: A. A cure for sadness or B. A guarantee of happiness.“

Two questions, do you think J has a big d and do you think H wears contacts? XD

Ehhh, definitely one of the more interesting questions I’ve gotten! XD 

No, I don’t think Harley wears contacts because the glasses she wore as Harleen were probably an attempt to look more professional so other doctors at Arkham would take her more seriously.

Now about J…. I don’t think Harley’s complaining ;)

Inspired by my first (and hopefully only) trip to Cabela’s. Set in the same time line as The water’s dark and deep inside this ancient heart

Save these questions for another day

The Doctor, quite frankly, was horrified.

Of course he knew of the great Trafanium Market on Catatrox in the 98th century. He spent far too much time here during the Time War and not by choice. However, he never imagined to be walking into the largest megastore of guns, laser blasters, bombs, universal weapons of mass destruction and other pointy things in the universe with his wife and their four-year-old daughter.

“River,” the Doctor hissed as Charlotte’s eyes promptly widened at the giant space. An array of clothing spread before them, looking utterly harmless. But against the walls, gleaming weapons sparkled in all their destructive glory.

I was thrilled by the recent arrival of official Doctor Who fabrics at Jo-Ann’s, and as soon as I saw this TARDIS print I knew I had to make a skirt out of it. Here is the finished product - a full circle mini skirt in 6 panels, with a zipper and a bit of elastic at the back. Possibly my favorite thing I’ve made to date, AND it looks fabulous on me.

Hey jabberwockypie is this a good distraction?

Ugh there’s this annoying clickbait article going around Facebook and it’s bothering me so much. It says a woman keeps a pet snake in her bed and sleeps with it next to her. It says the snake stopped eating, and her doctor said it was because the snake was measuring up to her to eat her.

So. A few things on this. I really need to rant because so many people are actually believing this.

-First, that’s not a “deadly snake”. That’s a harmless fucking ball python.

-Look at the photos. “Four meters long”? It’s a different size in every picture. Photoshop.

-Ball pythons aren’t four meters, they’re not even four feet sometimes.

-Snakes don’t stop eating in preparation. In fact, they don’t prepare for anything at all. They simply don’t have the capacity for that. They just eat or don’t eat depending on whether they need food at the time.

-That doctor isn’t a goddamn snake specialist. He’s a fucking idiot, if this even happened at all (based on the previous statements, it didnt).

-Ball pythons just aren’t big enough to eat someone, and I promise you not one will even consider it.

-So since the snake wasn’t dangerous, it’s totally harmless, right? Wrong. It’s animal abuse.

-Why? Because snakes aren’t supposed to be in your bed. For their own safety, they need a secure terrarium. I’m glad this isn’t real because if it was I’d find the person who did this and punch them in the face.

-Basically, this is framing animal abuse as acceptable and making it about the one abusing the animal as if that person is in some kind of serious danger.

I’m not gonna post this on Facebook since it’ll just be a repeat of middle school (people being shitheads to me just cause I care about animals). But seriously? Why would someone even believe this story?
