it’s interesting but also terrifying to see the ways that capitalism has shaped our language and how we talk about bodies. can you be useful? can you be a productive member of society? can you work? can you make money? that is all this comes back to. so much ableist and fat phobic rhetoric is, at its core, does your body enable you to produce capital. if not, then you are useless and don’t deserve humanity.
I’ve learned this during my 6 month recuperation. I still feel pretty fucking useless by usual standards. I’m not full time again yet.

It’s funny how I’ve grown up hearing that the United States is the greatest country on earth only to reach adulthood and find out that many other countries handle education, healthcare, gun control, incarceration (as in less people, not more), and the overall economy better that we do and they spend less money doing it.
I feel like all this patriotism is just overcompensating.

when you yell “puppy!” at a lil doge and they get happy and wag their lil tail like “yess!! i am a puppy!! a baby dog!!! thank you!!!!!!”
When you yell “puppy!!!!” At an old doge and they wag their tail and get all happy like “yes I am still a little doge thank you for noticing! !”
I call all dogs puppies.

If you are a man who thinks it’s funny to make misogynist jokes purely to make your female friends uncomfortable/angry, then you are a misogynist. It is not “just a joke.” You literally are finding humor in the discomfort and dehumanization of women. You are not helping, you are not making satire. You are just being misogynist.
