I know it can be tough for bigger folks to find workout clothes. This article lists a bunch of stores (both online and at your local mall) where you can find reasonably-priced plus-size stuff to work out in.

-Jess

It’s nice to have a list of affordable places for plus sized workout gear, but does it have to be in an article focused on weight loss? Some people work out just for health reasons, not to lose weight.

I know what you mean. I’ve been thinking about starting a blog that is just focused on fitness for fitness’ sake, as opposed to weight loss. I would love to see more articles/blogs about how to incorporate exercise into your life and motivate yourself to work out WITHOUT any fat-shaming.

Oh, Brad Pitt.

Brad Pitt’s taste in gowns leaves something to be desired, doesn’t it?

IDK, I really like the middle left one! And his legs look great in all of them.

I like his dresses.

This is the secret of propaganda: To totally saturate the person, whom the propaganda wants to lay hold of, with the ideas of the propaganda, without him even noticing that he is being saturated. 
-Paul Watzlawick

Be careful what you watch, read, and listen to. Our sickness is our unwillingness to question the status quo or what everyone just “knows” to be “truth”. We believe everything we are told in popular media and our ignorance becomes the community psyche. History is filled with that which everyone just “knew” which we laugh at today and question how anyone would be so ignorant. And yet we walk through life today as zombies, believing what we see on tv, in the news, and in popular media. Question everything.

My bud SarahSpy just sent me this as very ‘yvynyl-y type fun’, and she’s right. The “Drawing Apparatus” by Robert Howsare uses two turntables to create geometric spirographs. Click thru to watch a vid of this baby in action.
Speaking of SarahSpy, she’s coming up on the 50th issue of Storychord - her excellent music + fiction + art online ‘zine. Celebrate with her at a free event at Housingworks Bookstore cafe in NYC, Monday, April 30, 7-9pm. Emperor X headlining, and there will be readings from past contributors. #recommended

Dear Followers,
I have been receiving a lot of messages as the one above. Apparently there is a person going around on tumblr, befriending members of the lgbt community who are not yet out to their parents. She then sends their parents letters outing them. (S)he pretends to want to be your pen pal or wants to send you a letter/gift via mail. (S)he will do anything to get your address. Please be careful. I’d really appreciate you guys reblogging this or making a similar post letting your friends/followers know. Just because that person’s blog was deleted doesn’t mean (s)he won’t come back. 

what is even wrong with people

Who can’t love this guy?

also the story of heteronormative assimilation, whoops

^^^ Assimilation makes me grumpy.

yeaaaaaah uh i did not read it that way at all

I’m about to be real grumpy.

The same people who say shit like  the above (not DTWPS) are some of the same people who piss and moan about how homophobic Black folks are.

And here’s a Black man, the president of the US speaking about the multiplicity of acceptance of gay folks, and y’all just have to nitpick?

Look, I get it, I’m as skeptical of homonormativity and everything as anyone else. Shit, I’m even more so, because I am Black and Trans* and there is no way for me to even begin to be represented by the HRC and their like. But, that said, I say come the fuck on. Have your ish about homonormativity, but acknowledge this is a big fucking deal, to have a man who has admitted he is making his own journey to acceptance come out and say that it’s important actually be accepting. Not tolerating, but accepting.

Sophie M Herold - The girl who was sending hate to the LGBTQ community.

Jealously, that’s all it is. She is jealous of all you awesome people, cause she cannot come to terms with herself or feel accepted. So all you beautiful gay, lesbian, bi, trans* and other people out there who have been personally victimized by Sophie, hold your head high and be proud of who you are, cause at least you have the guts to be you :)

ALL OF THIS EVIL AND HATRED AND BIGOTRY BECAUSE SHE’S FUCKING JEALOUS

I CAN’T

LMFAOOOO PSYCHOPATH IS PSYCHOPATHIC

Um…THIS is exactly why I think Rick Santorum and Michelle Bachman’s husband are both gay. No NON-Gay person sits around thinking about gay people all day. 

The true sickness is the self loathing. The only problem is that THIS kind of self loathing could actually get someone killed. 

For those that are not sure, I just got off the phone and with Jesus and he said he’s cool with gay people so you can all calm down now.
