I’m going to make a store called “Build-a-Bra” where girls can go and make bras that are for them if they have different shaped boobs. And really big boobs. And really small boobs. And bras for boys that they can stuff if they want them. And really any kind of boobs. And you’ll choose the size of each cup and then you can choose the color and pattern and shape. And it’ll be really cheap. But lace and diamonds will cost a little extra

it’s really simple though

youarenotyou:

if what makes you angry is marginalized people calling out oppression

and not the oppression itself

your priorities couldn’t be any clearer

I’m not “offended” by the shit people say—I am harmed by it. When you complain about having to be “PC,” you are saying that you are perfectly fine with hurting people and supporting cultural systems that cause tangible harm to certain populations.

I am not the first person you loved.
You are not the first person I looked at
with a mouthful of forevers. We
have both known loss like the sharp edge
of a knife. We have both lived with lips
more scar tissue than skin. Our love came
unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.

This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
on your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you.

And I will not be afraid
of your scars.

I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.

Dear internets, got any suggestions for combatting internalized mental health stigma?

I had a panic attack at school today, right before a test :/
But I am awesome and used my room grounding tool right away. had accomodations set up w disability services that I was easily able to postpone. Was w the school psychiatrist when it happened. Had a friend I could talk to who supported me safely over the phone while I cried.
Brought on mainly by my psychiatrist suggesting I switch meds to zoloft. I think, among other things, I have a neg association w zoloft and a whole lot of internalized mental health shame attached to it.
How do you approach internalized mental health shame?
Looking for tools, anecdotes, encouragement, community.

→ The Body Is Not An Apology: The Curiously Oppressive Power of Positive Thinking

thebodyisnotanapology:

The Curiously Oppressive Power of Positive Thinking
by Rachel Cohen-Rottenberg, Content Intern

Occasionally, I read articles and see memes that suggest that loving ourselves and our bodies involves believing in the power of “positive thinking” – a belief that dictates that if we just believe…

Michael Pollan, on Democracy Now, tells us that the “family meal” is the “nursery of democracy.” And then he goes on: “it’s where we learn and where we teach our children how to share, how to take turns, how to argue without offending, how to learn about the events of the day. I mean, I learned all this at the table. And if kids are spending all their time in their rooms, you know, passing through the kitchen, nuking a frozen pizza, they’re missing something really important.” Now, I don’t know about you, but almost nothing was more horrifying to me as a child than the “family meal.” My parents screaming at one another, screaming at me and my sister. Every meal was another battle: I learned how never to breathe while eating, how to hold everything in, act like this isn’t going on, when will I get away? Will I get away? Can I survive? Is it possible? Maybe I can exist without a body, that’s what I wondered, retreat into my head a certain kind of escape. I’m guessing my experience is just as common, if not more common, than the one Michael Pollan rhapsodizes over, and it strikes me as a certain kind of arrogance, not to mention a deep lack of awareness, when he acts as if the abused kids, the queers, the freaks, those of us who were rarely if ever nurtured at the kitchen table, those of us who fled to our rooms not to eat frozen pizza, but with a mad desire to escape, that somehow we do not exist. Pollan’s invocation of the nuclear family as a model of care actually prevents the kind of communal intimacy and accountability that we all need and desire, that very few of us really experienced at that kitchen table so devoid of nurturing or democracy.

I love how people are just going in on Pollan these days. It’s definitely funny to take down the dude that is connecting “radical” food politics to his idea of what an ideal American family unit should be and become.
