Post professional phone call game: did I hang up too fast, should I have waited for her to say goodbye first, did I sound rushed and unappreciative?
SOLUTION: Send thank you email.
im all about having more body posi media but not when the message is “boys like curvy girls” because who fucking cares what boys like
people will always call out people for saying “fuck skinny bitches” but when the diet commercial comes on, when the fat jokes are being made, when conversations about how fat people are detriments to society are underway, when a size 6 expects her size 26 friend to go with her to the mall even though there ain’t shit for her fat ass there, when girls are saying “i can’t cut my hair short because my face would look fat” & “when i learned that drinking alcohol could make you gain weight i felt like my life was over!!!”, and when family/friends/TOTAL STRANGERS are saying “we’re just worried about your health” y’all STAY quiet
because body-shaming someone who “doesn’t deserve it” would be the worst thing you could do, right?
- An actual thing that was said to me when I said “stop arguing semantics with people’s identities.”
first of all friend, I don’t know who this *us* is, since even if you didn’t identify as an “ally”, even if you were bisexual, you are trying to police other people’s identities.
Second of all - telling people (including you) they are being oppressive is COMPLETELY ACCEPTABLE. I do not have to be “nice” to people who are somehow “annoyed” by the fact that I and other bisexual people define our identity in a way that they don’t like.
Anyone who says “see this is why you don’t deserve rights in the first place” upon being told they are being oppressive, WAS NEVER OKAY WITH TREATING US LIKE EQUAL HUMANS IN THE FIRST PLACE
and it is therefore not my concern whether or not I’m perceived as nice.
Fuck your tone policing and fuck your respectability politics.
