Creative, honest, lovely

“When I’m reading, I’m looking for something to steal. Readers ask me all the time the traditional question ‘Where do you get your ideas from?” I reply: ‘We are all having ideas all the time. But I’m on the lookout for them. You’re not.’”

Nice, but they’re still white, conventionally attractive, not visually trans* or disabled, neither of them have visable scarring, stretchmarks, etc, I mean, even on a basic body-positive note, neither of them have hair legs or armpits.
I’ve yet to see ONE graphic along these lines that actually include anything other than the chubby/skinny thing. Let’s see some fat, scarred and stretchmarked black trans women with prosthetic limbs or dwarfism or something, and hairy legs, maybe she’s got a shaped afro or something, natural black hair is looked down on by society.
Then I’ll get as excited as the rest of tumblr by these nicely drawn graphics.

YOU PEOPLE ARE NEVER HAPPY A RE YOU


IS THIS FUCKING BETTER??!?@»@?

Oldie but goodie. 

Bringing this one back.

Jordan Davis would have turned 19 this year.

The black teen was killed in 2012 while sitting in a car with his friends outside a Jacksonville, Florida convenience store, listening to music.

That music was too loud for Michael Dunn. Following an argument over the volume, the 45-year-old man fired his gun into the car full of teenagers, killing Davis. Dunn told his fiancee the teens were playing “thug music.”

On the eve of Davis’ birthday, a mistrial was declared on the first-degree murder charge. The jury found Dunn guilty of attempted second-degree murder and a count of firing into an occupied car.

While people struggled to make sense of the verdict, Jamie Nesbitt Golden kicked off the #dangerousblackkids hashtag on Twitter, with participants questioning a society where unarmed black kids are often interpreted as threats.

This is really important to me, and I can say with 100% certainty it affects a HUGE number of other men out there, whether they want to admit it or not.

Since lately I’ve seen a lot of body positivity posts for females, I thought that this was something that desperately needed to be brought up for men.

When a woman is overweight, they start a campaign to tell them “You’re beautiful the way you are.”

Hey, if you’re a male, I have something to say to you.

You’re beautiful the way you are. Don’t ever let a woman tell you that you aren’t good enough.

For the women reading, I’ve found from the times that I brought the topic up with my females friends, many women VASTLY underestimate the impact this has on a man’s self esteem. So I’m going to lay a few things out here to shine a light on the issue of penis size.

sevencounties.org/poc/view_doc.php?type=doc&id=15717&cn=10

Something very important to note here is the mention of advertising. Don’t go blaming this on some bullshit patriarchy either. If there were a system designed by men to make them seem empowered, the last thing that they would want it to do is make them feel like that power is dependent upon something they can’t control, a.k.a the size of their member. This advertising is LITERALLY EVERYWHERE. And it’s found the most on porn sites. If you have watched porn before, you’ve likely seen something along the lines of the images above.

This one also brings up some good points about how men are judged/feel like they are judged based on their performance.

www.livinghealthy360.com/index.php/how-having-a-small-penus-affects-a-males-self-esteem-72135/

A shorter article, but it touches up on the fact that there isn’t really a proven, safe method to alter size. Not that any man should feel a need to change his size in the first place.

And this is literally not even the tip of the iceberg. The issue is so trivialized by society that it’s in daily speech and common expressions.

"It’s just a joke" So are rape jokes. Fat jokes. Sexist jokes. Racist jokes. Made my point yet?

Yeah I thought so.

I’d like to end this off on a happier note though, so here’s a story about a man who showed Boston that anyone can be proud of their size:

entertainment.ie/man-cave/Size-doesnt-matter-says-the-man-with-the-tiniest-penis-in-Brooklyn/202902.htm

Normally I know asking people to reblog is stupid, but if this can even reach the eyes of 100 men and make them feel better about themselves, or influence the minds of 100 women, I’d be happy I made a difference.

Remember guys: You are beautiful JUST the way you are.
