A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, it is an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women’s history.

self diagnosing is so hard because everytime you’re like “maybe I am mentally ill” theres also a big part of you going “nah you’re probably just a naturally lazy/nasty/disgusting/useless person trying to find an excuse for your behavior” because of the institutionalized ableism that runs through everything

So go to the doctor and get an actual diagnosis?

Why don’t poor people just buy more money?

You sliced me loose

and said it was
Creation. I could feel the knife.
Now you would like to heal
that chasm in your side,
but I recede. I prowl.

I will not come when you call.

you know that thing of like when you’re just going about your day tumbl-blogging pictures of cats and suddenly tumblr gives you the spinning wheel of death and says, “i broke,” and the only option it gives you is to retry, and retry, and retry, and you’re brain is like HAHA I’M DEFINITELY NOT GOING TO MAKE A METAPHOR FOR LIFE OUT OF THIS.
