"Hi, I’ve overeaten myself into near disability and have encouraged others to do the same! I now want you to give me money so I can be PAID to tell people what they want to hear instead of medical fact. Either that, or I am going to quit dietitian school when I realize they’re fatshaming factlords who rely of clinical studies and empirical evidence instead of facts!" - fatbodypolitics
Anyone who donates to this is more of an idiot than anyone who donated to Anita Sarkeesian and her bullshit gamer girl martyr crap.
That’s great, I’ll respect you like everyone else just as long as you don’t tell me that:
- There’s nothing unhealthy about being fat
- You’re better than me because you’re fat
- I’m privileged because I’m not fat
- You’re oppressed because you’re fat
- I have to accept you just because you’re fat
Me not being attracted to you is me having standards.
You not being attracted to me is you being shallow.

smokin-oaking said: Are those ratings for the new korra episodes bad?
Without context, then yes I would definitely say those ratings are poor for the new episodes. Barely surpassing 1 million views is really low considering that Spongebob reruns can get an average of 3 million views per episode.
However, given how poorly nickelodeon has handled The Legend of Korra and all the marketing and advertising that comes with that, it honestly isn’t that surprising. The studio has allowed episodes to be leaked, which is something they have done many times before with ATLA and LOK, released a trailer for the new book only a month before it premiered, and has started airing the new episodes as hour long premieres, which shortens the presence of Korra on nick and shortens the build up of interest. When you compare all of this to the amount of marketing and build up they do for Spongebob it’s clear to see that they simply do not know what they’re doing. It’s incredibly frustrating and nick seems to almost want to see the show not succeed.
If you want to read more about how nick has failed this show, you can read this excellent write up by dongbufeng regarding nick’s inability to maintain a culture of fandom for Korra.

Sigh, anon hasn’t even been on, what, an hour? Seriously guys, grow a spine. If you can’t proudly stand behind your opinion and deal with the backlash of expressing it, then don’t express it at all instead of being a coward on anon. The only reason I have anon is for anon ask games and people who are too shy to talk to me. Not for your idiocy.
First of all I’m going to clarify by saying: If you are thick, overweight, fat, or whatever else you want to call it, I’m not hating on you. What you look like does not determine your worth as a person. You are no less of a person for how you look and if you’re proud of yourself the way you are, keep it going because all that matters is what you feel about yourself and never let anybody make you feel less of a person for something like race, size, gender, orientation, etc.
Do I draw fat people? No. No, I don’t. Whyyyy? Because I don’t like drawing fat people. I only draw what I like to draw. I like drawing thin people. I like the curves more. I swoon over collar bones and hip bones and the contours of a beautiful thin ribcage and middrift. Am I allowed to have preferences you’re damn fucking right. Does it make my drawn characters any less interesting because they don’t look the way you want them to look? No. Are they less interesting because they’re skinny? No. Are they less interesting because their white or straight or cis or whatever the fuck? No. Because the appearance isn’t purely what makes something interesting. And if I’m not drawing a solid character and I’m just making random drawings, I’m going to draw what I want to see not what you want to read in a character.
Sorry, not sorry, fat characters don’t do it for me. I’ve tried a few times and It looks bad when I try it, or at least it does in my opinion. I can’t make it look good, but skinny girls or muscular girls I can. You can draw whatever the hell you want to draw. If you want to see drawings of fat people, either draw them yourself or look elsewhere. I draw what attracts me and fat people don’t attract me. So what you aren’t being ‘represented’ in my art. Cool, my art isn’t for you. My art is for me. Is my art commissioned for you? No? Then shut the hell up.
As for only drawing white girls? You apparently don’t pay very much attention to my art. Kariah, one of the characters I draw pretty frequently is not white.
And then there’s Kenji, an asian.
I’ll bring up Akane Daidoji, another asian, but I never draw her face because she’s always wearing a mask, that’s just part of her character though, before anybody tries yelling ‘you’re hiding PoC behind masks!’. She’s a fucking ninja, first of all and second she’s a character, much like Kenji above, from a game called L5R. She’s a member of the Scorpion clan and the identifiable trait of the scoprion clan is they’re ALWAYS WEARING MASKS. ALWAYS. It’s their thing.
I’ve got other main characters, like Solli, Nogitsu, Xulli and Veia in addition to plenty of others who aren’t white…. but that’s also because the first 2 anthros and the other 2 are drow. <_< Sooooo…. ~shrugs~
Point being, I draw plenty of non-white characters, and even if I didn’t you could fuck right the fuck off because my drawings cater to nobody but me unless you’re shelling out money for a commission. I draw what I want and if you don’t like it, you’re more than welcome to unfollow and begone.
Have you paid me to draw anything other than skinny white characters?
Then shut your pie hole.
A leucistic (partially-albino) red-tailed hawk with its handler. Taken from the Minnesota Zoo in Apple Valley, MN.
Of all the raptors, the red-tailed hawk is the most prone to occasional leucism and albinism. Fully albino individuals generally perish quickly, since the lack of pigment in the eyes robs the birds the ability to see effectively.
Leucistic individuals have a chance of surviving in the wild, since they retain pigment in their eyes. Thus, sightings of pale, mottled, or fully white (but dark-eyed) red-tailed hawks are rare but regular throughout the population.
Uhm… So somebody just died of the Bubonic Plague… You know… The Black Death. That really bad thing that we thought was gone and killed millions of people (basically almost half of Europe’s entire population at the time) and… was…. ya know… really bad? Yeah… Somebody just died of it a week ago over in China… <_< All aboard the nope train to fuckthatville.
