On behalf of myself and all other basic, white, blonde girls who manage to grasp the concept of intersectionality and try not to stick our noses in the narratives of people whose experiences we know nothing about Read more

I don’t think she’s that complicated. No matter what her personal beliefs and world view she just happens to not be a total fucking moron. She can believe horrible things but she doesn’t totally deny reality. And she isn’t going to be treated like she’s an idiot by anyone (left or right). Whether it is pretending Read more

I was told I would never be able to have children. I told my husband before he married me. Kids weren't a big deal to him so it was okay. I had wanted children but made peace with my fate. 18 months after we got married I got pregnant. I was thrilled. He wasn't. It took him a few weeks to get over the shock and most Read more

I don't want to be part of a group that silences me for reasonable ideas or values certain members over others. It's partially why I barely post on GT anymore.

You're correct about both having equally curated images, albeit in different ways. However, Beyonce's image is the riskier one (counterintuitive, but hear me out).

Oh yes. I'm definitely fine with the "I'm so sorry you're going through this" type responses and people seeking comfort. But when the "you do you" advice is obviously going to blow-up someone's life and is actively contributing to their misery? That I'm not OK with and I consider enabling. "You do you" advice is great Read more

The never ending barrage of "BEYONCE LOOKING FLAWLESS" post headlines only add to the problem.

I don't want to make it sound like people shouldn't post when they are looking for help (there are plenty of posts I see asking for advice where the whole process looks like it's helping). But when someone posts several posts filled with information showing a pretty deep depression and self-sabotage, I don't really Read more

Yeah I think she's hilarious, and I like her personality, but her catalog doesn't do anything for me. I felt the same way about Nikki Minaj until The Pinkprint.

Am I missing something, or is this pretty much the least surprising finding ever? Of course disordered eating is going to get in the way of accomplishing other things, it’s sucking up time and energy that could otherwise be used elsewhere, and very possibly causing physical symptoms that obviously are to stand in the Read more

So “chill” is basically the concept of “playing it cool” taken to an extreme degree. Got it. By the way, I hate chill. Hate it! Maybe it’s all the coffee I just consumed but CHILL SUCKS. FUCK CHILL.
