The deal with blog posts is less that I am unmotivated and more that my life exploded and now I’m sick; regular posts start this week. I’M SORRY, LOVELIES, I MAKE YOU A GIFT OF MY MUCUS…?
Are You Ready to Have Sex?
sexpositive: Ask yourself these questions, and consider all the physical and mental possibilities before having sex. Is your decision to have sex completely your own (you feel no pressure from others, including your partner)? Is your decision to have sex based on the right reasons? (It shouldn’t be based on peer pressure, a need to fit in or make your partner happy, or a belief that sex is...

[TRIGGER WARNING: Depression] You'll notice there...
khaleesi: I’ve thought about doing this for months and there’s still a part of me that’s uncomfortable with it, but I’m gonna be really candid with you guys. I love my mother. I love my father. They divorced when I was four; my dad was injured on the job when I was less than a year old and cannot work. He gets by (barely) on social security. He made a work attempt when I was 12 and failed. He...
fannybrawne answered your question: I’m thinking about doing away with the “Read More”… read more? get rid! :) bdoing answered your question: I’m thinking about doing away with the “Read More”… I definitely think the effect is diluted. Most of what people do on Tumblr is scrolling anyway; seemingly-short posts get missed. yourfuckingmuse answered your question: I’m thinking about...
Game Time! Body Policing for Beginners
by Kaye, originally posted at SPARK Movement Okay look, there has been a TON said about the difference between how male bodies and female bodies are policed in the media, but it is absolutely astounding how many people I come across who just don’t understand even the basics of these differences. To make it easier for these people, I have constructed a SUPER FUN (read as: mildly...
I’m thinking about doing away with the “Read More” cuts, even though usually what I write is pretty long. I do them mainly because I don’t want a wall of texts on dashboards, but sometimes I think the effectiveness is then diluted. What do you think?
Anonymous asked: Great post - the way big women are portrayed in media is disgusting and degrading, and as a larger teenager myself I've felt the consequences of that image in relationships with others and with myself. Yet, while men are given more leniency when it comes to their bodies, it's a bit unfair to say they're all 'dorky or cute' if they're fat. I've known plenty of...
BFF HOUSE RULES
Hi everybody! Thank you for following! Standard blog entries will go up twice a week, on days tbd (probably Mondays and Wednesdays, but honestly it depends on my workload). Vlogs will go up once every two weeks (for now — I just really want to do them. It’s probably vanity. WHATEVER). Advice will be given as questions come in, or once a day if I start getting heavy traffic. Mind...
New Year's Resolution #1: Love Yourself
by Kaye, originally posted at SPARK Movement Turn off the TV for a second, if you have it on. I want to have a little bit of a conversation with you, and the last thing I want is for it to be interrupted by yet another weight loss commercial gimmick. They crop up more and more often this time of year, don’t they? I don’t watch a lot of TV, mostly because I simply don’t have the time and I don’t...
