does anyone else get wildly turned on by people being knowledgeable about shit? like, just hearing someone talk about history or languages or anything really
So, I was required to do self portraits for a photo course I’m taking and that alone was a terrifying concept to me. I’m a long time photographer but I’ve never ventured into taking “real” photos of myself.
In the end I’m happy with how it turned out and I think I look at myself a different way now.
I’m a US 24/26, 19 years old, and it took me this long to realize I’m really happy with where I am. I’m engaged to someone who loves me regardless of society’s look on my size and I’m happy. So who’s complaining?
"To suggest that one’s belly, body hair or tattoo is ‘distasteful’ and should therefore be covered in the name of etiquette is the very worst sort of body fascism. If your children are traumatised by the sight of a fat person in a bikini, a bit of cellulite or a caesarean scar, then may I tentatively suggest that you aren’t raising them correctly. If seeing someone hairy wearing something skimpy renders you ‘unable to eat your lunch’ then I’m afraid my diagnosis of the problem is with your brain, not their body."
"Dont say you hate your fam-" No.
"Omg you should love your fami-" No.
"Be grateful they’re your famil-" No.
If you have been bullied, hit, teased, put down, hurt, lied to, or hated by you’re own family; you don’t need to justify how you feel. You dont need to explain yourself. You are allowed to hate a family member or dislike a family member if they’ve given you a reason to.
