"Don’t call me beautiful
i don’t care
call me intelligent
tell me my laugh is contagious;
that i made you smile
tell me i have something to offer"
Roughly 20% of the population struggle with high sensitivity. Typical traits include the following:
1. As students, they work differently from other people. They often pick up on subtleties and may think deeply about a subject before sharing in a discussion or…
This is Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo (Child).
She received $1700 dollars in donations from fans all around the world. Instead of keeping it for herself, using it for pageants, or for something else, she purchased toys for needy children in her area.
Her family gives to the needy AND supports equality for gays? Fuck you to whoever disses her. She’s 7 and shows more compassion than most people three times her age.
She’s my queen.
That is totally for publicity!
oh my god you’re right
let’s ignore this canned food drive they held too
oh right and this? $1300 in cash donated by fans to buy just THIS image of all these toys?
and oh shi-
this extreme amount of TOYS AND FOOD donated in a SINGLE night via their Christmas meet and greets with Santa (which Sugarbear dresses as Santa in the sweltering Georgia winter heat for hours at a time)
and the fact that they take pictures of themselves with the *ALL* letters and trinkets their fans send them?
oh gosh, yes, this is totally publicity
Seriously, no one has any reason to talk crap on this family. They have never done a single thing wrong and look at all of the good they do for their community.
People hate them because they are Southern, overweight, and successful while still managing to be wonderful people.
You can find more facts psych2go
People don’t choose to be genderqueer/transgender/genderfluid they just are - just like I am me, and you are you.I don’t understand parents who say “No, you have a girl’s body, you have to be a girl and wear “girly” things and shit.” If your child feels deep down that they aren’t a girl, then why force them? That’s like saying “oh, you feel you’re an introvert? Well I won’t love you as much unless you become a public speaker.” Like what the fuck. I could never understand waking up one day and not being who I am, so I don’t understand the hardships of not being cis-gendered or whatever the proper terminology. But like, I’m sorry, if I had a son, and he came to me and said he felt like he identified as a girl, I wouldn’t love him (or should I say her) any less.
So I guess I’m going to watch the first episode of Attack on Titan o.o
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover."
EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS
what the actual FUCK
I wish I could even be shocked
Just gonna keep reblogging this
this is the biggest crock of fucking bullshit i’ve ever fucking seen FUCK
“but why didn’t you go to the hospital?”
Please please all of you just move to canada! PLEASE!
I’m really disappointed that this is so over sexualized because pole dancing is really cool
okay, so first of all: this example is not “over sexualised” - this is someone who very possibly has never done a day’s worth of stripping in her life performing some moves in a dance studio. She’s very likely to have had a lifetime of dance and gymnastics training behind her and decided to take poledancing classes when it became the new hit craze. She’s learned in a formal class environment.
But poledancing was developed by strippers in a stripclub environment. Many of those strippers also had a lot of dance and gymnastics and cheerleader training behind them and they developed pole moves partly as a way to kill time when the club was quiet. They taught each other in an informal setting and innovated and created for themselves. Without getting paid explicitly to do so.
Their talent at being able to do things like this has never been recognised. Even though the first pole schools were opened by strippers and taught by strippers, it has now been appropriated by hundreds of people who have never done sex work and who have no respect for sex work, who think it is “sad” that poledancing has a history inextricably entwined with sex work, who only view poledancing as a legitimate artform once it becomes detached from its sex work context despite the fact it was conceived and built in a sex work environment by sex workers.
Poledancing is not “overly sexualised”. It IS a sexualised dance/athletic art and rightly so - it belongs to strippers and it is strippers who made it. Its beauty and athleticism and skill doesn’t change because it was used in a sexualised environment to help its practioners make more money (although now it is seen as just for middle-upper class non-sex workers to pay big bucks in a formal class environment to learn to titillate boyfriends and husbands whilst staying appropriately fit!). That’s a part of its history. Sexualised things are not inherently worth less because of their sexual nature. To believe so is just to devalue the hard work of the sex workers who innovated it and that is done more than enough as is.
Poledancing is still cool and amazing and requires great skill and talent to execute even MORE SO when it is sexualised. Just being able to perform it impressively is one thing; being able to make it a fluid part of a character performance (which is what stripping entails) is another. If you can’t appreciate that, you don’t understand it, so STFU.
this fucking commentary is perfect
Okay, I had to hunt this post down and reblog it because someone on my dashboard decided to reblog a gifset of a man in light workout gear poledancing, with more commentary on how “see, it’s a REAL SKILL, it’s not slutty” and 1) slut shaming, nuff said and 2) way to erase the creative contributions of the generations of sex workers who INVENTED this art.
