Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto (via dark-rye)
this speaks to how much we’re programmed to hate ourselves and everything good in life
Especially with our extreme diet culture.
Anything is considered an ‘indulgence’
Just look at food commercials.
We sexualize the hell out of food, and then make all these puritanical restrictions about them, going on and on about how ‘bad’ you were for eating this and how ‘guilty’ you feel about ‘cheating’ your diet.
Fuck outta here with that.
keep your friends close, but your enemies closer
like really, very close
so close that you can feel your enemies breath on your neck
and you shiver with hatred and… anticipation?
turn around and look deep into your enemies eyes, letting your gaze drag down to their lips, your eyes intense with desire. push your enemies up against the wall.
make out with your enemies.
your friends, who are still close, are super uncomfortable and kinda grossed out
At this rate, Colbert might actually be held accountable in the near future for making transphobic jokes.
this isn’t transphobia this is satire based on the fact that b and t recognition are often casualties when it comes to mainstream l and g issues good god…
except it hasn’t been debunked because every word I said is unarguably true regardless of how fucking long ago it was I’m in literal awe at the responses here, Stephen Colbert knows what the bt in lgbt stand for and this completely satirical and incredibly culturally relevant call out of this specific ignorance is just that, satire, end of story
I am reblogging this for the amusement of my followers, and to provide an example of just how confident a person can be while remaining clueless.Context makes a huge difference in these matters. He satires homophobia, he invokes transphobia. I know it sucks, his show is funny, to be honest I like him, that’s what makes his transphobic remarks hurt all the deeper. Same with Jon Stewart.
I would have a LOT less issues with his transphobic “satire” if he ever did anything to represent the community on his show beyond those remarks. There are so many amazing trans* people doing fantastic things right now, but he’s never had a single of of them on his show (to my knowledge. If he has, feel free to correct me). The fact that he seems to think that having Dan Savage on his show represents the entire LGBTQ community only tells me that he views everyone in our community who’s not a white cis man the same way that Savage does. And this is coming from someone who seriously loves most of what Colbert does with his show. I just think he has a LONG way to go before he’s in the position to make some of the LGBTQ satire that he’s done.
Is it Joaniarty is that what we’re going with I need a name for my descent into what will assuredly be my new obsession and probably my downfall

….i read one too many of those ‘sansa should be grateful to marry Tyrion!’ posts and i was feeling a little sarcastic.
don’t you think that the fact that women’s menstruation synchronizes when they live together is like natures way of accepting and adapting to homosexuality? it’s like hey ok you’re gay that’s cool here i’m gonna let you have your period at the same time so you don’t lose valuable sexytime
i dreamed a dream in time gone by
when hope was high and life worth living
i dreamed that love would never die
i dreamed the god would be forgiving
but the tigers come at night, with their voices soft as thunder
as they tear your hope apart
as they turn you dream to shaaaaaaame
