petamurgatroyd Real life: I took this photo 8 days post birth. I left the hospital looking 5 months pregnant. Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre-birth weight immediately. That is just not the truth for most. The female body is incredible and resilient, but healing and strengthening take time. Now it’s time for patience and hard work. Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey. 💪🏼💪🏼 #yesihaveascrunchieinmyhair#shaiiswortheverypound
“if you’re offended by the r slur you obviously haven’t been on the internet very long”
has it occurred to you…that people are upset…because it has been used against them? it’s not an issue of lack of exposure, buddy. I don’t like seeing that word because it tells me what you really think about me. I don’t like seeing that word because my family called me it every time I did the slightest thing wrong, practically every day since before I was 8 to the day I left home, and every single time it made me feel like shit. not because I knew exactly what meant, because it wasn’t politically correct, or whatever —after all, I was just a kid— but because even as a kid I could grasp the gist of it, and I knew it was bad.
I could write an essay on why it makes people uncomfortable and why it’s a slur and why you shouldn’t use it, but plenty of others have already done that. hell it was even fucking acknowledged in laws. but I don’t need to say all that, because I know you don’t actually care. if you did we wouldn’t be having this conversation.
all I want to make clear is that if you think people are uncomfortable with this word because of a lack of exposure, you’re way fucking wrong.
