Check out this awesome project we’re working on — a tumblr for caregivers to share their stories through personal photographs. Please follow and reblog if you see anything that strikes a chord, and if you know any caregivers please encourage them to submit at http://www.throughacaregiverseyes.com/submit!

Q:Do you realize that the fat activist movement is a sham by various food corporations in order to increase profits?
Do you realize that the diet industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and that dieting is a sham in order to increase profits?
Did you realize that dieting makes about 1/10 what big food does, and big food has a vested interest in keeping you addicted to crap?
This is hilarious. People actually think it’s the other way around.
I mean, I guess it’s not like dieting is encouraged in every single fucking magazine, in a shit ton of commercials, on billboards everywhere…
Dieting industry: $60billion/yr industry, controls entire social environment encouraging thinness and actively discriminating against fat people.
"Big food": allegedly makes 10x that, controls small-ish counter-movement of fat people saying "fuck off stop treating me like shit".
Uh…huh. This makes sense how, exactly?
Because it’s unthinkable that actual fat people would genuinely not like to be treated like shit…?
Frankly, I don’t care if it *was* a project of “big food”, I’m still gonna support a movement that has done approximately 100000000000000000x as much for my mental and physical health as dieting ever did.
Um if this is true where the fuck is my food industry check?
Someone thinks this world is one where there is a vast, well funded conspiracy to promote fat positivity? Honestly, it’s scary that they can look at such an unremittingly fat hostile society and think that, but, of course, this is also a world where people sincerely believe in “minority privilege”.
Even corporations with a vested interest in promoting fat acceptance will throw fat people under the bus just ‘cause. Just look at how plus-size clothing retailers are more likely to sell customer data to weight loss companies than do anything substantive to encourage their customers to have a positive relationship with their bodies.
17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?
…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.
Q:you are white passing. Like, entirely. As a person of color, if I saw you on the street I would think you were white. That person was wrong to assume your racial identity but I don't blame them. It's a nice thought that you aren't afforded the same privileges as white people, but you really are. Please at least keep that in mind.
Yes you are absolutely correct. While I have experienced various levels of passing in my life (from assumed to be totally white to questions about “what ARE you” to assumptions that I am mixed or Latina), the fact remains that I am white-passing and benefit from white-passing privilege.
The weird part of Anon’s assumption and inclusion of my identity as “white” in their ask is that ultimately my racial identity (assumed or actual) is irrelevant to what Chris should or shouldn’t say about racism/white supremacy.
