“A survey of 11-to-14 year-olds found:
· 51% of the boys and 41% of the girls said forced sex was acceptable if the boy, “spent a lot of money” on the girl;
· 31% of the boys and 32% of the girls said it was acceptable for a man to rape a woman with past sexual experience;
· 87% of boys and 79% of girls said sexual assault was acceptable if the man and the woman were married;
· 65% of the boys and 47% of the girls said it was acceptable for a boy to rape a girl if they had been dating for more than six months.”—
A new Post poll put the difference between the two parties’ perception of minority voters on stark display. Respondents were asked an open-ended question: Why do most black voters so consistently support Democrats?
Like, yeah it’s not considered attractive for anybody to be morbidly obese or have a beer gut, but if you’re a man you can still be valued for your other qualities, and taken seriously as a human being. As a woman who is considered unattractive, everything you ever do in life is going to be picked apart, even when it has absolutely no relation to how you look. Even if you’re an Olympic gold medallist, NOPE SORRY YOUR HAIR IS UGLY, NOT GOOD ENOUGH! Or a politician, WE DIDN’T EVEN LISTEN TO YOUR SPEECH BUT YOU’RE NOT WEARING MAKEUP, EW I WOULDN’T TRUST YOU TO RUN THE COUNTRY!
I don’t see why that’s such a hard concept for people to understand, and why men feel the need to rush in and say NO IT HAPPENS TO MEN TOO, STOP BITCHING! It’s not about having your feelings hurt once in a while by a fat joke, it’s about literally every aspect of your life being overrided by the need to be sexually attractive to everybody at all times.
70,000 pregnant people die around the world every single year from illegal abortion. They leave behind 220,000 kids since 61% of people seeking abortions are already parents. So you've got dead parents, dead fetuses, and orphaned kids. What part of that sounds "Pro-Life" to you?
People want to shout “Fat is bad” with the same zeal that they would have shouted “The sun revolves around the Earth” just a few years ago and pretend that it’s not possible that they’ve got it completely wrong. But history and the evidence points in another direction:
Habits, not weight, are the best determinant of health. 
Fat people are not the cause for the rise in healthcare costs. 
Intentional weight loss almost never works in the long term. 
You can absolutely be fit and fat. 
Those who espouse Size Acceptance and Health at Every Size are just the new Galileo on the block. It wasn’t easy for him either but the fact that he was put under house arrest and told to sit down and shut up didn’t change the fact that what he was saying was true. It’s up to us to keep reminding people that “Everybody” very rarely knows anything and that if your arguments are based on what “everybody knows” then it’s time to check your sources. In the meantime, we can employ strategies to deal with this emotionally and decide that if they want a war on obesity, we’ll give them one!
