I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better to myself than the person i was yesterday.

We are taught to walk scared late at night. We cradle our keys between our perfectly manicured fingers, walking gracefully like a baby antelope in a herd of lions. That our virginity defines our character. That I am a frigid bitch if I do not fuck him, and a dirty slut if I do.

This bully has more rights than the woman he’s yelling at. She’s trying to right that wrong.
Well worth taking a few minutes and watching. Wow.
I’d love for my re-production abilities to stop being up for a vote along with many other issues.
I love cats! I love every kind of cat!
So I saw this on etsy. I am flipping my shit. But they are made of silk I can’t purchase them as a true vegan! I’ll need to make them!
Thats because America likes to be awkward. An american size 0 is a UK size 2 or 4 or something.
I wear a 00… I haven’t worked out, and I don’t starve myself. Thank you Ellen for saying I am nothing.
Exactly, you are something, so why does your pant size pretend like you are zero (which mathematically means none)?
I think it’s programmed into American mindsets that 0 is a size. But math (which sizes are based off of right?) says that zero is in fact nothing. Using a number system to make something logical and then saying in fact 0 is a “size” is the opposite of logical, it’s nonsensical.
What Ellen is pointing out is that we have terrible expectations in relation to size in America. You are not nothing, which is why your size should never have been named Zero. Zero is nothing. You are someone! Don’t you deserve the significance of being something?
It’s interesting how the fashion industry has warped our brains into forgetting that 0 is nothing. So Ellen seems like she is calling you nothing? The fashion industry already did that. And with weight and size being such a personal and insecure topic for many women it feeds into this idea that we should be smaller, that we need to go down a size. But the measure of our waist should not start at zero!
Men’s sizes measure around the waist (circumference) and the length of the leg. They will never have a zero, because a zero would mean you do not exist.
0 is not a size just cause some dip wad decided to call a circumference of some odd centimeters or inches a 0.
Fuck the unhealthy expectations of being “nothing”. You are a person you deserve a number that is real, not nothing and not one of those imaginary numbers either.
My Vaute Couture necklace has arrived! A pleasant surprise. I forgot that I won it! It looks awesome.

My number one critique of anything I just don’t care for is usually that it isn’t relate-able. Doesn’t mean I think it’s bad usually, but I need some connection to someone’s work to care. This is relate-able, and I actually care about it.
