washing your hair every day is unhealthy for your hair/scalp unless you have very very greasy hair because shampoo dries out your scalp and gets rid of all the natural oils that your scalp produces to protect it so as a result it produces more and makes your hair greasy even faster so it’s counter productive as hell so if you don’t have greasy hair washing it every other day or every three days is normal and actually better

My brother killed himself
on the twenty-eighth Thursday of last year
and I missed four days of work
and my mom wanted to know ‘Why’.
My brother
he was always a fan of beauty
but what he did
was not beautiful at all.

And last week I got the news
that one of my good friends from high school
had overdosed
(again)
except this time
she’d gone too far
and now she was gone.
And I had a hard time falling asleep at night
and her mother
hugged me tight
and thanked me for coming to the service
but I did not
want to be there at all.
This is not
beautiful.

The girl down the street
would’ve turned 21 last year
and I can scarcely imagine
the wild times she would’ve
(should’ve)
had.
But she is buried six feet deep
after falling nearly 300
and she did not leave a note.
This is not
beautiful.

My freshman year of college
and my roommate was beautiful
and how I wanted to be just like her.
But she wore herself down
till she was
almost invisible
and if you blinked
you had to go and find her all over again.
So now her parents are no longer supporting her college tuition
but are paying her hospital bills
watching their daughter crumble.
This is not
beautiful.

So y’all can take your narcissistic
romanticizing
and glamorizing
of self harm and eating disorders and committing suicide
and shove them as far up your ass
as you possibly can.
Starvation is not beautiful.
Killing yourself is not beautiful.
Sadness
is not beautiful.
This note I am writing
is not beautiful.

But you
you are beautiful
and it’s about damn time you start believing it.

Disgusting. Fucking repulsive. Exposing your body doesn’t give anyone the right to it. Ever.

No but it increases the risk of it happening. Assuming that everyone else is rational and moral, and that its society’s fault if a minority of people end up committing crimes is stupid.
That is the point people are making. They are not justifying rape.

How can you possibly know exactly who a rapist would choose to rape, unless you’re a rapist? 

I’m sorry but if you think about the 1 in 3 statistic in South Africa, then how can you really think that dress is a factor at all?

intersectionalfeminism:

Just to get this straight, in this double page spread there are:

  • Fat women
  • Of different races
  • Who are unedited (note the stomach and the rolls)
  • And are being praised for being the weight they are (and eating what they want)
  • While they are all being quotes talking about being healthy at any weight

I mean, this still isn’t perfect, but this is pretty damned impressive for a mainstream tabloid.
