I will always reblog this because it is so so important.
I just want to nail this to every stable surface I can find. I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve seen fat folks being encouraged, cajoled, and even forced into behaviors that would be recognized as disordered eating/exercising patterns in thin folks.
Pretty much everything that’s done on shows like The Biggest Loser would be called out as pro-ana/pro-orthorexia in a thin person. Exercising past the point that it hurts, to the point where you’re throwing up, even injuring yourself? Berating yourself because you didn’t lose ENOUGH weight this week? Constantly talking about how fat is weakness and thinness will make everything better, about how you can’t stand to be your current weight anymore? Emphasis on weight as a sign of how much control, strength, and worth you have? Viewing food as bad, as a temptation to sin? Constant sharing and talking about tips on how to minimize food intake, how to lose weight?
That sounds exactly like every pro-ana/pro-mia blog I’ve ever seen. It’s also what fat people are told we need to be doing to ourselves until we’re thin.
The pee one omfg BLESS YOU
If your urine is absolutely clear it means you are taking way too much water when there is no need to hydrate your body or clear away stuff on your kidneys. It’s useless. ALSO WATER INTOXICATION IS A FUCKING THING YOU NEED ELECTROLYTES NOT JUST WATER AND GUESS WHAT OVEREXERTION IS A RISK FACTOR.
More is not always better. Practice prudence and respect your body’s signs. You WON’T get healthier by destroying yourself.
There is literally no Utena merchandise I want as much as these babies.

Laura Hudson writes about the shotage of women characters in Star Wars fore Wired.com in her article "Leia is not enough: Star Wars and the woman problem in Hollywood."
"Science fiction in particular has always offered a vision of the world not myopically limited by the world as it exists, but liberated by the power of imagination. Perhaps more than any genre of storytelling, it has no excuse to exclude women for so-called practical reasons — especially when it has every reason to imagine a world where they are just as heroic, exceptional, and well-represented as men."
