I was inspired by thisisthinprivilege to look up more information about the BMI and how it has changed over the years. I found this article about the 1998 “strict” BMI standards, that dropped the weight limits for being considered “overweight” or “obese” and reclassified many Americans.
"Some health experts reject the new guidelines, claiming people who aren’t fat are now considered overweight. For example, under the new definitions, many professional athletes would be considered too heavy.
Critics also worry that these lower weights will persuade doctors to start prescribing diet drugs for people who don’t need them. Some diet drugs carry health risks, such as an increase in blood pressure.”
Q:Hermione was a white. Even the illustrations in the books showed her as a white
no hermione was definitely black. she was also trans and probably polysexual. she was also pro-palestine and a major voice of the feminist movement in the wizarding world. stay mad.
I photoshopped Danny DeVito into my makeup and now no one can deny he looks exactly like me.
Actually I used pixlr because I don’t have photoshop.
I am no longer able to delude myself into the self-indulgent fantasy that I can be a different kind of shelter worker, that things would be different if I could be the director of a shelter. In fact, it is this self-indulgent feminist fantasy that we have about ourselves as feminists that often individualize any obvious problems, invisibilize more subtle ones, and minimize the urgent need for institutional rather than individual remedies. We need to not only criticize individual acts of mistreatment of survivors by the shelter system, but also instigate an active disloyalty to feminist utopianism that perpetuate the institutional abuse of survivors and forestall structural changes.
