This blog is my main blog where I post pretty much anything I find interesting. I am a genderqueer (them, him or her are all fine), bisexual person who currently lives in America. I am a big ol' geek who loves critically examining stuff, and someone who is very interested in social justice. I identify as a Universalist with heavy Pagan and Christian leanings, and also as a Lokean and follower of Morrigan. So... pretty much expect posts about all of the above!

Real life vs Societal expectations

Wow..

Yeah, news flash people, boobs generally only look “perky” while in a bra. A few are super lucky and have naturally perky boobs, most don’t. And this is because, SURPRISE, boobs are intended to feed babies and it’s hard for a baby being cradled in mum’s arm to reach a nipple that’s on the other side of the boob from where its mouth is.Think of a soda fountain machine. The spouts are all pointing down, right? So you can put soda in a cup being held under the spout? If the spout was sticking straight out, it would be really hard to get a soda out of it.Babies need to be able to reach a nipple easily so they can eat. Ergo, nipples are usually lower and angled more downward on a naturally hanging boob, both so it’s easier for a baby to reach and so gravity can do its part in pulling milk toward the nipple.So there you go, outright ANATOMICAL proof that boobs are not there for the benefit of men.

Thank you for that. I never realized. Thanks.

BREAKING NEWS: here is a story about a cop treating a black person like an actual human being and doing their job the way they’re actually supposed to! Whoa! This is revolutionary! See, we told you not all cops are bad! Tune in to channel 5 at ten tonight to see them be awarded with cookies!

Exactly. So many people are like “here’s a cop with a kitten! See! Not all bad!”
I’m like

What if we all looked the way we wanted? Our ideal weight became reality, our worries about money washed away. Your love life is exactly the way you pictured it. Do you think we’d all be happier? Or would we just find new things to hate?

this post just fucked me up

Okay, I see the point, I guess.

But.

I just had my food benefits cut by $200 a month and someone wants me to stop and think about whether I really need money to be happy.

The fact that I can experience moments of happiness while being fucking poor and scared as hell does not mean I don’t need the fucking money.

FUCK.

You’d have a leg to stand on without the money part, but the money thing?  People are suffering, sometimes DYING, because they cannot get the food and medical care and housing they need. Don’t tell me money doesn’t matter.

Don’t you tell me that.  Don’t you even imply it in my presence.

If I looked like I wanted I wouldn’t be constantly mistaken for a woman. If I was my “ideal weight” my knees and ankles wouldn’t hurt so much. If my love life was how I pictured it then the person I love would be with me instead of several states away. If I didn’t have to worry about money then I wouldn’t be stressed about my food stamps getting fucked up the past couple of months and I wouldn’t have to freak out over applying for disability and I’d be able to afford healthcare. Yeah, I’d be a lot happier.

But. Y’know. Whatever makes OP feel superior.

Basically, privileged people don’t know how good they got it where those changes seem minor.
