there are people who literally cannot set foot out of their rooms or even go online without seeing things that give them uncontrollable flashbacks to legitimate traumas, and the world at large doesn’t even pretend to be sorry for it. no, they go out of their way to make fun of people who experience such horrors. this isn’t a fantasy that “social justice warriors” have made up, this is the reality of living with trauma and mental illness. when you make trigger warning jokes, you are literally making fun of people for reliving their #rape when they’re in a certain type of space, for remembering the fear of their #abuser when they smell a certain aroma, for having a phobia, for any number of things they have no control over that affect their lives for the worse. it’s unspeakably horrible and i’m appalled that anyone would find someone else’s trauma funny.

Inspired by the rich gold and black of Dolce and Gabbana’s A/W 2012 collection, I saw this fabric and knew it was meant to be.  Just finished over Thanksgiving weekend, it’s been a great relief since I haven’t sewn anything this ambitious in a long time.

[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]

➜ The 1% wants to ban sleeping in cars – because it hurts their 'quality of life'

bspolitics:

Let’s see; keep pay low for average workers, keep pay high for the higher-ups, keep unemployment high by squeezing as much as possible out of those workers and basically tell anyone who can’t get by to stay out of sight.

whose life is being affected by someone sleeping in their own car?
