Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola 

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

Well, first of all, it is NOT available to everyone. Very very few — like, statistically indistinguishable from zero, the US federal government keeps a database of a few thousand people who have managed it kind of very very few — fat people can actually lose enough weight to become thin, and keep it off. (And actually that database is for anyone who has lost of 30lbs and kept it off for long periods; I would need to lose 120lbs to be thin. Most fat people are a lot farther from “thin” than 30lbs. There are 319 million people in the US, and only 10k people the government tracks have lost 30lbs and kept it off. Even if only 1 in 10 people who have kept it off are in the registry, that’s three-one hundreths of one percent.) So your initial premise, that fat people can just become thin, is utter bullshit.

But that doesn’t matter. Do rich people not have privilege because anyone could win the lottery? Of course rich people have privilege. It’s laughable to think that they don’t. If most queer people could become straight or most POC could become white, but society was still structured the same way, that still would not mean that straight and white people were not systemically and structurally treated better than queer people and POC, and it still would not make the oppression of queer people and POC morally acceptable. So your second premise, your definition of privilege, is also utter bullshit.

Privilege is systemic and structural preference given to one group of people over another group. Whether or not people can control which group they’re in has nothing to do with it.

Most fat people spend years and decades, thousands of dollars, and uncounted gallons of tears trying desperately to become thin. Whether we choose to attempt weight loss or not, we have to deal with society and individuals both badgering us and shaming us to do so. You are one of those individuals.

Shut the fuck up. Examine your premises, and educate yourself.



the racist but loveable white person trope needs to stop



Thank you for letting me be fully clothed instead of being in a bikini and a cape, looking like a slut

I don’t know what kind of beach your “fully clothed” musty ass goes to take your monthly showers sis but around these parts, most women wear bikinis to beaches [like Bey in this gif] and there is nothing “slutty” about that. I’ll end the lashing here for your sake. I don’t do walk-in appointments.

I don’t see anything wrong with gentrification, it helps boost our economy.
