are you okay? You don’t seem so healthy..Not sure what you mean since this is a picture of my beautiful legs but yeah, I’m 100% a-ok.I’m sure you mean no harm but if this was a comment in relation to my weight, it’s really destructive to think skinny = unhealthy. I’ve been this thin my entire life and have a lot of trouble putting on weight.
I would agree. That’s a shit thing to say to someone based on the way her body looks. Everyone comes in different shapes and sizes, and you have no idea whether or not her size is her normal, healthy body weight or for some other reason. Either way, it’s not your business, and that kind of question has the potential to be extremely triggering.
Gonna keep a tally of messages I get from a) white feminists completely proving my point and b) people who think this comic proves feminism is worthless because I criticized one part of it. (Even despite me writing these words underneath the comic.) Then I’ll add them all up, see which column has more, and then drink myself to sleep either way.
Haha… this is why we can’t have nice things.
You know all those wonderful Conservative parents who proceed to abandon, kick out, or cut off their children for any reason (including, but not limited to a child’s sexuality)?
Well here we go:

The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.
Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 who will be diagnosed this year alone, The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection and healing.
Now HERE’S a good goddamn glimpse at breast cancer. Fuck your “save second base” bullshit. -C
Pretty much why Brutal Honesty doesn’t have many friends. And There are times we have to let go of certain people, not because we don’t care, but because they don’t.
now im almost in tears because of how just… accurate this is….
Friends can help, and they can help a LOT. They can offer a hand up from the darkness when it doesn’t seem like any light exists anymore. But they can only do that if you’re willing to put some effort in as well, and a true friend isn’t someone who is going to lie to you and say everything is going to be alright when it’s not.
I know I am a hard person to help sometimes. Often I can’t see anything good, and my depression blinds me. Sometimes I need a friend to tell me that, even if things aren’t okay, that I am not useless. Being sick for as long as I have been makes you feel worthless a lot.
But logic, when a friend can grab you and tell you that your mind is making you small and the darkness isn’t eternal, when they tell you that you need to help with your own recovery, that helps. It’s hard to hear, no one likes to hear that there is no instant fix to our problems. But knowing that someone believes in you enough to say that you need to stand up, knowing that someone thinks that you can get up at all, is one of the most uplifting and helpful things anyone can ever do.
I agree with this in a lot of ways, but too many people make excuses for being an asshole/complete insensitivity as “brutal honesty.” Yes, be honest, but keep that particular person’s psychology in mind. I’m not saying sugar coat, but it’s like individualized teaching. Don’t just shout your feelings toward a person because it feels good to you, like you want to be heard, say it how that person will hear most effectively.
