For Sarah
by Megan Falley

"I know what it is to be the one

who stashes monsters in her own closet.
To hope the houseguests don’t notice
the coyote-shaped howl, how you hear it

even miles from home. It crescendos

over every conversation, every song.

How avoiding it is like leaving.
a house with every unsteady candle lit.”

click through to the whole poem. I did and now I am crying on a train and so grateful. Thanks meganfalley.

What the fuck is up with the east coast and gala apples… Like I’m sorry honeycrisp or pink lady are where it’s at.

Even the Midwest knows that! Gala apples might as well be baking apples.

I..thought they were baking apples. And good for apple sauce & apple butter…people eat them raw?

I do. I guess next time I go to the store I should try Pink Lady?


Being fat carries with it a lot of cultural baggage. At the same time, fat people, especially fat women, are supposed to pretend we don’t exist or that we’re not fat. I can’t count the number of times thin people have made reference to fat people or fatness in a negative or joking way in front of me, from the petite woman sitting next to me at the coffee shop complaining about fat people on airplanes, to my friends who routinely make jokes about their “inner fat kids” coming out when they eat a lot, to the women in my family who compete to see who can look the thinnest in family photos. Sometimes it feels like I’m not even there, or that I’m not supposed to be. - Lisa C. Knisely

"We need to recognize that for some people sex is great and for some sex is horrific and for some it’s on par with folding laundry."

(~Sex Isn’t Always Good by queenieofaces)

This is a critical part of sex positivity that tends to be overlooked. Let’s celebrate empowering amazing sex and the choice to not have sex, or only have certain kinds of sex. 

and there are lots of reasons why this might be the case!


PSA

I’m probably going to be posting more about food and body image in the coming weeks/months as I begin the process of working through some stuff. I’ll be using the tag WEIRD HONESTY for all of it, in addition to other tags as appropriate. Please let me know if there’s anything specific I’m not tagging for that I should be.
