jim kirk is the kind of person who is held prisoner in a room with a heavy ass typewriter


a sharp, knife-like letter opener


a heavy metal whatever this thing is


a big ol’ trash can which would be excellent for smashy smash


and instead of using any of these things he’s like, my weapon of choice?

is a fucking blanket




creativity, thy middle name is tiberius

More and more, women’s plus size clothes are being moved from meatspace racks to online only availability. Not only does this make it impossible to try things on before purchasing, but it forces many of us to pay shipping and handling where our smaller sisters (and some brothers) need only get to the store. Effectively, this creates a Fat Tax.

While thus far retailers have either said nothing or stated that this practice is fully legal, in actual practice it creates a system of consumer discrimination. Rather than making us sit at the back of the bus, they force us to do our shopping where we won’t be seen sullying the brand. (If you look closely, many companies put their plus size clothing under an alternate name.) So not only do we have to pay disproportionately more for clothing than someone who may only need one size smaller, but we have to pay shipping, we have to pay in the time it takes for our orders to arrive, and we pay in the dignity inherent in being a visible member of open society.

As corporations think with their profit margins, I propose, as a first step, demanding that shipping fees be automatically waived should a single plus size item be purchased online from a retailer that does not stock a suitable percentage of plus item in brick and mortar stores. By suitable, I mean at minimum the same percentage of the full straight size range offered in store, with equal respect for quality, fashion, and style. Any retailer that refuses to waive the fee gets boycotted.

I am fat, I am proud, and I love myself too much to allow any fashion-related company to relegate me to electrons and shadows.

(And because I have to say it, if they think they can get away with fat taxation without in-store representation, then I think it’s time we throw them a tee party.)

A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.

This is why we need feminism.

Horrible. Poor boy. I hope he has loving and supportive people around him.
