LOL man.never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,
Ugh, why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing?
because white people have made sure that everything is about race
as proved by the fact that when you say explorer, you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.
Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan, an Arab traveller who, as early as the 10th century, went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons. He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did)
Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself.
And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers
Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done.
don’t romanticize basic rights
it’s not attractive that a man is a feminist
it’s not sexy that a man finally realizes the prejudice against women and how very oppressed women are
it’s common sense
YOU HAVE VANQUISHED ME, MIGHTY BEAST
Cub: DAD STOP
Cub: DAD OH MY GOD
Lion: REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE…
Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.
soooooo is no one going to say ANYTHING about how this woman is full of shit?
like oh, you needed a fat suit to learn that fat people aren’t treated well? OR HOW ABOUT YOU JUST LISTEN TO THE ENDLESS STORIES FROM ACTUAL FAT WOMEN WHO COULD HAVE TOLD YOU THIS IN TWO SECONDS
you needed a fat suit to show that people don’t like when people use “fake” images …. I GET IT THAT IT’S SUPPOSEDLY STILL THE SAME PERSON but i mean, this is why i keep my pics up to date, because i don’t want to put myself through this
I’d be just as displeased if some guy showed up looking 40 when he said he was 25 (has happened), so I mean, what is this experiment proving other than “people on dating sites expect you to look like your photo, regardless of what you look like/weigh”
and you couldn’t find an actually fat woman for this entirely POINTLESS “experiment”
my body is not your fucking costume
the struggles and hardships i face from a fatphobic society don’t come off at the end of the day. I can’t unzip my oppression and slide it off
l FUCKING HATE PEOPLE WHO PUT ON FAT SUITS BECAUSE THE EXPERIMENTS THEY DO ARE ALL FALSE RESULTS
Like oh, you felt bad because some guys left you while in a fat suit? But you KNOW you get to take it off later. You KNOW this isn’t something you’ve dealt with for 20+ years, and likely won’t have to ever experience once the suit is gone.
Wear that suit, EVERY DAY, even in the shower, for 20+ years, FROM CHILDHOOD, THEN fucking tell me what you’ve learned. Until then, get the fuck out of my face with this social experiment bullshit
What. Fucking. Bullshit.
This “experiment” is completely fucked up in every way it could be. Aside from the OBVIOUS offensiveness of treating fat bodies as costumes to take on and off, what they are doing is actually reenacting a FAT SHAMING fantasy. Fat bigots created the fantasy of the deceitful fatty posting brazenly dishonest photos of themselves on dating sites to lure men in. But that’s a myth fat haters created to vindicate their disgust of fat people.
It. Doesn’t. Happen.
(And fuck any “Well Actually” bullshit. I don’t care if you can find an isolated instance of it happening. All Catfish does is troll the internet trying desperately to find those isolated instances. They are so rare that in the real world, the instances still round down to NONE.)
By being credulous of this lie, the experiment is useless. They craft a scenario where the “fat woman” really is lying to these men so it becomes impossible to detach their reactions from disgust with her body and disgust with being lied to.
People are allowed to be attracted to thin bodies. What they aren’t allowed to do is to translate a lack of attraction to a moral failing. What they aren’t allowed to do is be disgusted with bodies that don’t happen to turn them on. What they aren’t allowed to do is shielded from any critical examination of how attraction to thin bodies is socially conditioned and privileged. But at the end of the day, no one thinks anyone is obligated to fuck anyone they don’t want to. Experiments like this ignore meaningful questions about how fat women are treated in favor of scolding men for being taken aback when their date turns out to be a thin woman in a fucking obvious fat suit.
What they COULD have done but didn’t because this would have involved empowering ACTUAL fat women to tell their ACTUAL story is had an actual fat woman go on Tinder with photos that are completely accurate but also posed in a manner that might be regarded as “conventionally” flattering. Because that’s what is really behind the fever dream they re-enacted instead. The guys flipping out over being lied to are firstly never attractive themselves and “being lied to” is always them hoping a woman is thinner than she looks and being resentful that their fat shaming gamble didn’t pay out.
OR you could drop the bullshit notion of needing to conduct an experiment all together and just interview fat women about their experiences on dating sites. EVERY fat woman I know has stories of guys seeking them out to abuse them. EVERY fat woman has stories about guys responding to a polite but firm rejection with abuse. EVERY fat woman has stories of guys who ARE are attracted to fat women but act entitled to their attention and affection. Tell THOSE stories. Not some fantasy that is more at place on some fat trolling sub-Reddit.
And let’s not forget the fact that this video was advertised and titled as “Hot Girl Wears Fat Suit On Tinder Dates…” which strongly implies that hot = thin and fat = not hot. The whole concept and execution of this “experiment” is fatphobic and disgusting.
so many of you have changed your icons and urls and i really don’t even know who half of you are anymore i just go with it
SOUNDS EASY ENOUGH I figured it must be something like that.
Time to get spoopy.
do u ever just meet someone and KNOW they have a tumblr with a long ass superwholock url & their blog title is something like “welcome to my twisted mind”
feminism never made me hate men but the reaction to feminism sure as shit did
some men* you literally cannot hate people you’ve never met or even heard of.
