Being fit is being skinny you idiot, being athletic and flexible is a whole different thing, you don't have to skinny to be athletic but you do have to be skinny to be fit
"Fitness." Merriam-Webster.com. Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 28 Dec. 2013. <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fitness>.
I don’t know what prompted you to send me the dumbest message I’ve received in at least 6 months, but nowhere in the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of “fitness” do I find the word “skinny.” Even synonyms for the word “fitness” focus 100% on health attributes as opposed to size attributes. So I’m sorry if you have this deep seeded complex that refuses to allow you to accept that, from all standpoints of medicine, science, and flat out fact, fitness is irrelevant to body size. That really sucks for you that your brain is struggling to let you come to terms with that. However, it is also 100% not my problem.
tl;dr: Blow it out your ass.
A world of fist pumps! Yayayay!
thank you. goodbye.
LOOOL OH MY GOD
ZOE QUINN CONFIRMED FOR TERF LMFAO
b4 we assume things may i propose that perhaps she is just unfamiliar with the term? if you looked at the term “cissexist” without any previous knowledge u might liken it to “sexist against cis people” or something (which isnt what it means obviously but i literally thought that the first time i saw the term)
she literally didnt know what it meant she thought it referred to cisphobia
i hope she doesnt get a bad reputation on my behalf :(
It’s important for us not to brand the wrong people as TERFs or bigots when they make these kinds of understandable mistakes. Good for her.
PLEASE take note of this.

Listen up, Tumblr. There are some cold hard facts about being poor that you need to know before you try to talk to me or my family or any other poor person about anything involving money, food, jobs, housing or healthcare.
- Being poor is expensive as fuck. Living paycheck-to-paycheck means you can’t shell out lots of money at once for a reliable car, so you have to buy a used car that might break down more often. Or maybe you can’t pay monthly insurance costs so you end up with a $2000 emergency room bill. Renting costs more in the long run than owning. And so on.
- Asking for money doesn’t fucking hurt anybody. As long as you ask in a way that is not abusive or coercive, you should not feel ashamed if you sometimes have to ask for money. ESPECIALLY if you do it via crowdsourcing or some other method that doesn’t put pressure on any one person. Don’t you dare shame a poor person for asking for help taking care of themselves or their family.
- Sometimes poor people have nice things. Yeah, I fucking said it. I have a nice TV and some game consoles that I bought when money was less tight. In fact, anytime a poor person gets an unexpected sum of money, like a birthday gift or a tax return, it often goes to something like that. Know why? Because we know we might never get another chance to buy the thing. And being resourceful people, we also know that if we have a chance to buy a nice thing now it will cost less in the long run than buying a neverending series of things that break after a month. We also get really fucking tired of always looking like poor people to everyone else. It sucks always being the house nobody wants to visit because somebody else can afford an XBOX 360 and you can’t. Finally, you don’t fucking know where that nice thing a poor person has came from. Maybe it was a gift, or somebody gave them a Best Buy gift card and they bought a laptop. Maybe a rich person was giving it away on Craigslist. Maybe the person wasn’t always poor but shit got hard recently. Maybe they actually saved up pennies for a year to buy it. You don’t know, and it’s not actually your business anyway.
- Healthy food is more expensive than unhealthy food. I’m not going to even argue this point, I’m just going to fucking shout it. HEALTHY FOOD IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN UNHEALTHY FOOD.
- It’s none of your business why someone is poor. Maybe they have a disability, maybe unemployment is high in their field, maybe they are part of a group that has been socioeconomically oppressed for generations and you don’t just fucking pull your bootstraps up out of that. I’ve never met anybody who was poor just for the hell of it. But you know what? Some people are poor because they made irresponsible decisions or they’re addicted to drugs or gambling. Those people are still people and they still deserve food and shelter.
- You can’t always get what you need at a thrift store or garage sale, and if you can, it still costs money. Some people have never actually set foot in a thrift store, so let me tell you what they’re like. There are rows and rows of clothes that are ugly or have holes in them or don’t fit you. And by ugly, I mean ugly-sweater-party ugly, like if I wore that to work I’d get fired ugly. If you’re REALLY lucky you might find ONE OR TWO things that fit and won’t fall apart after one washing. If you’re fat, trans or having other specific clothing needs it’s even worse. These are clothes that people rejected, and most of the time it was for a reason. Then there’s a lot of sketchy appliances from 1973 that somebody cleaned out of their mom’s garage after she died, toys for children 3 and under but fuck you if you have a ten-year-old, etc. They can be surprisingly good places to find books and Disney VHS tapes, but that’s about it.
- For similar reasons, things like Freecycle are spotty as hell. I live in a major metropolitan area. Currently, the things that are available on my local Freecycle list include an automatic pet water dish, various non-essential baby supplies, a “microwave splatter cover”, and a couple of office chairs. This is pretty representative of what is generally offered. It’s not a great place to get things you specifically need.
- There is no such thing as the welfare queen. This could be an entire post by itself, but let me give you a quick run-down of what ‘welfare’ usually consists of. This varies by state, but the aid available in Massachusetts includes food stamps ($200 a month max, doesn’t buy things like toilet paper, diapers or pet food), Emergency Aid for Elders, Disabled and Children ($300/month max if you qualify, you obviously have to be elderly, disabled or have children, and have to have almost nothing in your bank account), MassHealth insurance (actually pretty good but the application process can be long, and the state penalizes you by withholding some of your tax return if you go too long without insurance), and Section 8 housing vouchers, for which there is a waiting list of a year or more. If you manage to qualify for EVERYTHING, and you don’t have any kids, you might manage to scrape together enough to live off of. But barely. And MA is one of the better states for stuff like this.
There is probably a lot more shit I could tell you about what it’s like to be poor, but I’m tired and achy and so done with this shit, so I’m gonna stop here.
I have been this poor. I pray never to be this poor again. And I will never, never shame people for needing help.
This has been up here before, and it probably will be again.
Sooo this happened today. It’s the Decade Dance at Alice’s school and they were allowed to dress up for it. We went with 70s Punk Rock. She’s gonna be blitzkrieg bopping it all over the place.
THIS IS S O CUUTE LOOK AT HER
Join the movement to ban Valhalla by Ari Bach! A novel is nothing these days until it’s been banned from at least one school, library or book club. Harry Potter has been banned for perceived satanism, Looking For Alaska for sex and language, Hunger Games for violence. Valhalla has all of these and more and dang it, it deserves a ban. Please help send Valhalla to the ranks of the forbidden and write your local hate groups, PTAs and other moral policing organizations!
- 34 fucks, 24 shits, 11 craps and 5 bitches!
- A frequent masturbator, common nudity and an instance of sex!
- Countless acts of bloody violence!
- Lesbian main characters! Warn your local homophobe!
- Even more instances of gory violence!
- A joke about balls!
- Violence using bombs, knives, microwave guns and a walrus!
- A guy who does drugs!
- A surgically modified drill penis!
- Numerous occult references!
- A torture scene!
- Casual blasphemy!
- Philosophy of a grievously deviant nature!
Come on people, if they can ban Where’s Waldo for nudity, if they can ban James and the Giant Peach for the word “ass,” if they can ban Captain Underpants and Lord of the Flies for being age inappropriate, If they can ban Bridge to Terabithia and The Golden Compass for being anti-religious, if they can ban The Giver and The Most Dangerous Game for violence, damn it if they can ban Anne Frank for being bisexual then by God we can ban Valhalla!
Valhalla by Ari Bach: BAN THIS BOOK!
NO HOW ABOUT WE DONT FUCKING BAN BOOKS WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE
Don’t be angry at the ban.
Bans are just nature’s way of selecting a book for “controversy,” the process by which books reproduce. In the wild, when a book matures and is ready to become a phenomenon, censors will approach the book in its natural habitats, the school or library, and proceed to “Ban” it.
This “Banning” process signals flocks of “Readers” and lets them know the book contains objectionable material. Readers thrive on objectionable material, it’s their natural resource for protein and thoughts. So once banned, readers will swarm to the book and this is important because like a flower needs bees to become pollinated, a book needs readers to spread.
So once banned and swarmed with readers, the book releases its literature genome across the land as readers depart to tell each other about the controversy. This attracts more and more readers until the book becomes popular.
Now, bans have a negative connotation because during the banning process, the book traditionally becomes unavailable for reading. This is an outmoded tradition. In modern times, books rarely become unavailable. eBooks cannot be prohibited so easily, and if one school or library bans the book, it’s always available from others, or it can be found in the Amazon bookforest. In fact today, a banned book reaps only the beneficial components of the controversy without ever becoming tangibly prohibited.
So yes, we must ban Valhalla. Valhalla has been out for months now and it’s getting lonely. It needs readers to spawn, or it will die. So I call out to censors, conservatives, indignant parents, and ignorant antliterates to ban this book that it may live a full and rewarding life.
And if anyone seeing this should be a “Reader” themselves, I encourage them to spread word, ban or no ban, to other readers; and to read Valhalla as soon as possible.
There are two chapters online for free under “Look Inside” right here.
