Restrictors believe in control. Of themselves, their food intake, their environments. And whenever possible, they’d also like to control the entire world. Restrictors operate on the conviction that chaos is imminent and steps need to be taken now to minimize its impact impact. For a restrictor, deprivation is comforting because it provides a sense of control. If I limit my food intake, I limit my body size. If I limit my body size, I (believe I can) limit my suffering. If I limit my suffering, I can control my life. I make sure that bad things don’t happen. That chaos stays away.

Youtube and LGBTQ+

I was having a lovely Sunday, filled with laziness and, somewhat ironically, bingeing YouTube videos, until it was ruined by two things. 

The first, is snow, my nemesis and greatest foe.  The second was the shitstorm caused by the YoutubeIsOverParty hashtag currently trending on Twitter. And I’ve got to admit, as much as snow and I enjoy our eternal battle, I never once thought of YouTube as anything other than an ally. Though that has since changed.

Now, I understand censoring cursing and nudity, I’m pretty sure the latter has always been age restricted, but I am profoundly disturbed to discover that LGBTQ+ content is now considered “restricted”. That is absurd. You are absurd. This is absurd. And if anything, this just panders into the philosophies of the homophobic parents who wish to keep their children “protected” from such content.

YouTube always seemed to be this sort of free enterprise in term of content. A place where anyone could post anything as long as it wasn’t harmful to others. But restricting LGBTQ+ content is a harmful enterprise. Sometimes, all people have is the internet.  They don’t have supportive friends or family, so they’ll turn to the internet, and places like YouTube specifically, to find others like themselves. And many of these people are youths. Youth who are scared or questioning things and are looking to the content on YouTube for guidance. Putting a restriction on LGBTQ+ content is detrimental to those people.

Creators who strive for equality and acceptance should not be deemed restricted. These are people belonging to or supporting a marginalised community. They should not be vilified for trying to create a dialogue.

Please fix your error YouTube because I’d rather you not become my new nemesis. 

Weekend 😋

Guys, it’s the weekend and I’m challenging myself! My goal is to do anything possible to distract myself from eating. Here are the rules for my challenge.

  • Get through at least 3 chapters of a book per day
  • Do all of the homework I never do
  • Eat 600 calories OR LESS until monday
  • Try to drink at least 2 cups of tea daily
  • Post on Tumblr at least once a day
  • Don’t binge! You almost do every weekend
  • Eat only healthy food when you do eat!
  • Only weigh yourself on Sunday
  • Try to lose at least 3 pounds

If you succeed. You can have low calorie pasta on Monday for dinner 😂. At leasr, that’s the reward for myself. When I say low calorie I mean 500 calories as 2 servings. If y'all wanna do this, the pm me 😁 I’m starting on Friday (Tomorrow).

PSA

Suffering from mental illness does not make you a bad person. It doesn’t mean that you’re “crazy” or wrong. It doesn’t give anyone the right to treat you less than. If thinspo helps you deal, makes you feel better, or even is helping you recover you don’t owe anyone an explanation. Just remember that to stay safe. You are more powerful than you know. You are loved beyond your wildest dreams. Express yourself with truth from the depths of your soul. A deep understanding is waiting for you.
