So...doesn’t it sounds like your sister has some pretty bad body dysmorphia? And that she’s precisely the kind of person who’d benefit from learning how to not obsess about her body?

Yeah, that definitely could have been phrased/discussed better. Because while yes, body positivity should be for everyone, there are some genuine critiques about how the movement is being co-opted. However, the co-opting is not coming from skinny people trying to accept themselves, it’s coming from the diet industry

“As the body positivity movement, which began with the radical fat acceptance movement of the 1960s, has been co-opted recently by women of totally socially-acceptable, skinny shapes and sizes who think the movement is just for anyone who feels good or wants to show off their armpit hair”

I’d honestly rather really love my body than be ambivalent. I do get where she’s coming from, and I love her very much, but growing up fat makes me hyper aware of every flaw and I’m not sure I’ll ever get over that. I’ll take all the love I can get.

I hated S8 (or at least everything after ep 3), but there’s still so much amazing material to mine from the companion books. I would have zero interest if Benioff and Weiss were involved, but I’m actually super excited to see his material in fresh hands.

I am also just over 6'0" (which I cleared in junior high) and I also got teased pretty badly. I was uncoordinated because I was growing so fast, nothing fit right because I was so skinny, and my family didn’t have a lot of money so it’s not like I had special clothes. Also, teenagers are assholes. Full stop.

All of these services are just going to drive more people towards torrenting.

“Billions will die” gets valid attention.

Literally all anybody complains about is how Netflix is always getting rid of known IPs in exchange for their own content. There are a billion Netflix movies and shows.

Yep. People are going to die. Lots of them.  It’s not callous to be able to see a distinction between that and the end of the world.

As a shy girl who cleared 6'1" in high school I have heard enough insults, backhanded compliments, and “at least it’s better than being short” comments to last a lifetime....and I still get them. This week alone I was minding my own business in check-out and the woman behind me asked if I wore men’s clothes because

I haven’t watched Tall Girl. I was 6ft tall at 13 (capped out at 6'3"), and was mercilessly teased most of my life. The hardest part was it was the ONE thing about myself I had ZERO control over. I could lose weight, I could dress different, I could change my hair... but I wasn’t getting any shorter. I got nicknamed

Feels a little like the reviewer has a lack of ability to empathize.

I believe the movie and characters were shallow.

But the reviewers comments that it is hard to believe anyone would be mean to this beautiful girl read more like a reviewer problem. Teens can be mean about ANYTHING. I got boobs freshman year. You

The article is dumb. We won’t run out of water, and it’s a stupid question. Accordingly, that’s basically the answer from every single person asked.

it’s hard to believe anyone would mercilessly bully this extremely beautiful girl who wears her hair in a ponytail (gasp) and doesn’t wear makeup (double gasp).
