the thing is that i could talk about overeating != obesity and thin != healthy until i’m blue in the face, i could go on for a long time about it
but i feel overwhelmingly self-conscious and anxious whenever i do, so i don’t usually, unless i’m just venting to someone who i know already agrees with me (and agrees with the science of it, i guess)
because i’m so terrified that someone will say that i’m just rationalizing being overweight myself, i think everyone thinks that whenever i talk about it, that i use it as a free pass to eat like garbage, but i. well. i spend less time fretting about food the more i learn about it BUT THAT’S NOT A FUCKING BAD THING jesus christ
also yeah i eat like crap and i know i eat like crap, it’s super important to eat well, like, outside of your weight. thin != healthy doesn’t mean you can just load up on pizza and pop because that’ll kill you, that’ll increase your risk for a whole host of chronic diseases, but if you eat well and exercise who gives a fuck what your weight is
(also keep in mind that eating well is difficult for several reasons. a lot of people don’t have good nutritional information or don’t have access to healthy foods or the money to buy them, and don’t have the time/energy to cook… etc. i ate much better during the summer when i could cook meals instead of relying on fast food because at the end of the day i wasn’t too exhausted to cook real food.)

plot twist: two male characters are platonic friends and the fandom appreciates them as such
further plot twist: two characters of opposite gender are platonic friends and the fandom appreciates them as such
bigger plot twist: two female characters are platonic friends and aren’t hyper sexualized together by the male half of the fandom and thus, by the merchandizing team
even bigger plot twist: two male characters aren’t automatically assumed straight until proven otherwise
biggest plot twist: when a fandom with no/few canonically queer characters ships two close characters of the same gender in order to feel a little more normal, less ignored by media in general and/or just connected to the characters they love, straight people have the decency and understanding not to fucking whine about it

college is catered towards the able bodied and able minded. school applauds people who can stay up all night, skip meals, and work endlessly. that kind of extreme contribution is expected. why are disabled people being squeezed out of academic institutions? why should I feel inferior because of some arbitrary and ridiculous standard?
