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

"Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure."

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? 

"if you’re going to be a fucking hostile bitch to everyone who has questions or is annoyed by shit done by us, prepare to be sent back in time when it comes to respect, seeing as how people generally respond to hostility with “see, this is why they don’t deserve rights in the first place”"

- 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.
