Stop comparing yourself to others. It’s silly. When you open up a box of pizza, it doesn’t matter which slice has more or less toppings, or which is bigger than the other, it’s pizza. Pizza is pizza. Pizza is delicious. You’re delicious.
Nice, but they’re still white, conventionally attractive, not visually trans* or disabled, neither of them have visable scarring, stretchmarks, etc, I mean, even on a basic body-positive note, neither of them have hair legs or armpits.
I’ve yet to see ONE graphic along these lines that actually include anything other than the chubby/skinny thing. Let’s see some fat, scarred and stretchmarked black trans women with prosthetic limbs or dwarfism or something, and hairy legs, maybe she’s got a shaped afro or something, natural black hair is looked down on by society.
Then I’ll get as excited as the rest of tumblr by these nicely drawn graphics.
YOU PEOPLE ARE NEVER HAPPY A RE YOU
IS THIS FUCKING BETTER??!?@»@?
this is the best plot twist i have ever seen in my life
how do YOU pronounce ‘jean’ ?
I ACTUALLY HATE THE FEELING WHEN YOU CAN TELL YOURE LOSING INTEREST IN A SONG YOU REALLY LIKE
It’s fun to chant “Bloody Mary” into your car’s side mirror three times and watch her jog and try to keep up.
KILL IT. KILL IT KILL IT KILL IT!! THOSE LITTLE SHITS ARE EVIL! KILL IT!
THOSE THINGS BITE AND THEY KILL LADYBUGS AND BRING ABOUT THE RUIN OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLE BEARING PLANTS!
are you talking about the ladybug or the hand
That is NOT a ladybug, bro. NOT A LADYBUG. IT IS AN ASIAN BEETLE AND IT IS PURE EVIL!
Of course I am talking about the bug. The hand is fine. Unless it has slain puppies and kittens, then it, too, may be evil. But, no. THE BUG OF SATAN. e-e They breed way too quickly and are choking out the north american Ladybug and they infest homes and cause all around problems… mostly because of how quickly they breed and how, in the fall, they swarm houses.
AND THEY BITE. e-e They are irritating little jerks! ”This species is widely considered to be one of the world’s most invasive insects, partly due to their tendency to overwinter indoors and the unpleasant odor and stain left by their bodily fluid when frightened or squashed, as well as their tendency to bite humans”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmonia_axyridis
Everyone says they’re just like ladybugs but A LADYBUG HAS NEVER BITTEN ME.
Oh wow informative
HOLY HECK OKAY
So I don’t know this for sure but:
A few years ago, a HUGE swarm of what we thought were ladybugs at the time (I’m coming to realize that they were probably these Asian beetles) absolutely infested the area around my house. We couldn’t open our windows or doors during the LATE SUMMER for any period of time except to get in or out, and they still got in. I was too freaked to sleep in my own bed because I have a lot of windows in my room and I had seen a bunch of them crawling around inside.
When you went outside, they got in your hair and clothing and sometimes bit you. You had to wear sunglasses and keep your mouth closed or they would get in. Every crevice of the corner of our house was filled with thousands of them. It was HELL. To this day, ladybugs freak me out and if I see more than 2 in one area I start losing it. It’s entirely likely and possible, as far as I can tell, that the bugs that infested the area near our house were not ladybugs but were, in fact, Asian beetles such as the one in this picture.
So, as tumblr user oneoddobsession stated, KILL IT WITH FIRE. These things ruined my family’s fall and have ruined my appreciation of ladybugs. Plus, they ate all my pumpkins I had grown that year (*a single tear rolls down her cheek*). Don’t underestimate the power of bugs and insects, especially when they are alien to an area.
this is a great and informative post but are you telling me ladybugs literally have an evil twin
Okay, while all of this about Asian Lady Beetles are 100% true, if you look on the markings on it’s head, that’s not an Asian Lady Beetle. That’s an orange lady bug.
Please try to learn to identify the difference, lady bugs are very important insect in our ecosystem, and we shouldn’t be needlessly killing them.
Now it makes sense as to why ladybugs have always been so lovely and once I was hiking with my dad and a whole bunch of ladybugs decided to swarm me and bite me!!! :’( I guess they weren’t ladybugs…
I WAS EXPECTING SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAT WAS FANTASTIC
Just a friendly reminder to not put your change in the red buckets this year!
“The Salvation Army doesn’t believe that gays and lesbians should ever know the intimacy of any loving relationship, instead teaching that ‘Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life.’" - (source)

“The Salvation Army openly says that ‘practicing homosexuals’ aren’t welcome in their organization and they have lobbyists in D.C. and abroad who work to prevent gay rights legislation from being enacted." - (source)
“The Salvation Army does not only discriminate against gay and lesbian people, it also works politically against LGBT rights all over the world." - (source)

So while some of your nickels and pennies are going to hunger relief or “Christmas Assistance” just know that a large portion of your donation is going toward lobbying governments worldwide for anti-gay policies - including an attempt to make consensual gay sex illegal.

Slow down Katniss by 25% and what do you get? Will Ferrell.
OH MY GOD WHAT
the first step towards confidence is not being afraid to be ugly
once you get over the fear of being unattractive and stop equating beauty with other good things in life (friends, love, happiness) it’s a lot easier to love yourself unconditionally
your job is not to sit around and be pretty and easy on everyone else’s eyes
your job is to do whatever the fuck you want and look however the fuck you want while doing it
Girl all you gotta do is divide 48 by four it’s literally the easiest part
