Mostly-cis, fat ,middle aged, bisexual, disabled, white femme. My hobby is seeing how many years I can add to my collection before I die.

Posting will be random but may contain fat acceptance, wool, and cats, lagomorphs and corvids in no particular order. Posting may also be sporadic as I have ME/CFS and a bunch of other stuff that makes me tired and some times crabby.

(Other than an epidemic of hate and prejudice)

Don’t worry your pretty little brainwashed heads, I won’t cost you a penny.

And i’m not alone in that.

These anti-fat news reports are all sponsored by diet companies and a way of spreading fear, it’s a hate campaign as usual. Yawn.

“They’re telling lies!” I quote from Hairspray.

But eh, thanks bbc and all other news stations for the extra stigmatisation thrusted upon the visual of my body type as i’m on my way out in public! (sarcasm on the thanks.x.12)

If I could have my way I would DEMOLISH the “obesity expert” (PAAAAHAHAHAHAHA) meeting at Parliament today.

There really is nothing to discuss other than their own prejudices. Bunch of complete and total idiots! They are wasting their time and in doing so, hurting so many people.. Pehhh…

EDIT: It’s the costs of oppression and the oppressors that it all leads back to that are the problem, not the people of whom are oppressed.

You’ve probably spent your whole life being misunderstood, surrounded by people who don’t understand you. Maybe you’ve been told that you’re “aggressive” or “troubled”. People may have assumed that you’re stupid or treated you like a small child when you’re not one. It’s likely people have told you how “sorry” they feel for your “poor parents” or suggested that people like you should never be born. People have probably told you that you don’t feel empathy, that you can’t have friends, that you don’t feel love or pain and you’ll always be a cold, friendless loner.

I’m going to tell you something very important. All of those people are WRONG. All of them.

You’re not broken. You’re not stupid. You’re not a tragedy. You are absolutely brilliant and beautiful and loved and wanted *exactly* the way you are.

Big sis here! This is a Sanrio character I just learned about. “Nyago” is a boy tabby cat who loves to sleep. He reminds me of my little sister, who also loves to sleep! <3

Dr Surya Monro will be appearing on @BBCWomansHour on @BBCRadio4 on Monday 30 April btwn 10AM & 11AM to talk about the subject of Bisexuality

Dr Surya Monro will be appearing on @BBCWomansHour on on Monday 30 April between 10.00am and 11.00am to talk about the subject of bisexuality.

It’ll be available to listen to online & afterwards (for seven days) on iplayer.

Monro is currently undertaking a research project about bisexuality, “on why few bisexuals dare to tell”.

Her research will be published in her new book Bisexual Identities (Palgrave MacMillan, 2014).

via a crappy post on the @HuddersfieldUni blog.

“Regarding the upcoming Woman’s Hour Radio 4 programme on bisexuality, the contributors, Dr. Surya Monro and Louise Carolin, are valued colleagues who are both ethical in their work and committed to working with and for bisexual communities.

Dr. Monro’s research certainly follows the research guidelines on work on bisexual experiences, and her forthcoming book ‘Bisexual Identities’ will be the first project that I am aware of to compare bisexual communities across several different geographical locations globally. It will hopefully be an extremely useful starting point for dialogue about how communities can become more politically engaged and learn from each other internationally.

Certainly the heading ‘on why few bisexuals dare to tell’ doesn’t accurately represent the work that Dr. Monro is currently conducting which focuses on activism and community rather than individual experience. It should be remember that media representations do not always capture well what research is all about, as editors and programme makers can have quite different agendas to academics and writers.

I would personally like to see media producers, researchers and community members working more closely together to ensure that good work is carried out in this area, that it is disseminated as accurately as possible to the public, and that those conducting such work are celebrated and supported as much as possible.

Our story is the story of the universe. Every piece of everyone, of everything you love and everything you hate, of the thing you hold most precious, was assembled by the forces of nature in the first few minutes of the life of the universe, transformed in the hearts of the stars or created in their fiery deaths.

And when you die, those pieces will be returned to the universe in the endless cycle of death and rebirth. What a wonderful thing it is to be part of that universe. And what a story, what a majestic story.

Libérate.: Black Transgender Woman Murdered in Oakland. Nobody Cares.
