one difference between cats and dogs is that dogs do absolutely nothing to mask their clinginess while cats pretend it’s a coincidence they’re in the same room as you 97% of the time

“People don’t wanna be compared to the teenage girl; the teenage girl is hated, teenage girls hate themselves. If you listen to a certain kind of music, or if you express your emotions in a certain kind of way, if you self harm, you write diaries, all those kind of activities are sort of laughed at and ridiculed because they’re associated with being a teenage girl. Even just things like being cripplingly self conscious or overly concerned with our appearance, that’s considered like a teenage girl thing and therefore its ridiculous, it’s stupid, it’s not relevant or legitimate, and you know, what we needed at that age was legitimisation and respect and support but all we got was dismissal and ‘oh you’re such a teenage girl.’” Feminism, Education, and the plight of the teenage girl (via yungradical)

'Sex' doesn't sell. Erosion of female self esteem does. The feeling of superiority over women does. Turning women into 'things' to be studied, scrutinized & judged and then calling it 'sex' does.

Sex doesn’t sell. Objectification does

Sadiqa Thornton (via roserosetyler)

when i was working on my Master’s i studied objectification theory pretty extensively and there was this brilliant paper out there that i stumbled across about how in the modern consumer culture there are virtually infinite copies of the same product over and over again (how many different brands of shampoo out there are there that all do the same exact damn thing or different brands of butter or soda or cake mix that are all virtually indistinguishable from each other if we’re really honest about it?) to the point that really the only way for marketers to make distinguish these products from each other and get consumers to by identical brand a instead of identical brand b is the packaging and thanks to objectification the most common packaging used is women, not as people, as tools to make their packaging more appealing. women as packaging is everywhere and it’s very disturbing and feeds the side effect of objectification of the interchangeability of women implying that we’re all as similar to each other as the various products our images are used to hock.

For fat women, being stylish isn’t a luxury. It’s often a necessity to get hired, to get access to healthcare, to get treated like a human being.

Fat women have all kinds of narratives about sloppiness, laziness, dirtiness to overcome. Sometimes heels are a crucial part of looking “put together” in a way that sufficiently convinces people that we care about ourselves, that manages to counteract pervasive cultural narratives that fat people don’t care about ourselves. That we have “let ourselves go.”

Being “put together” is part of the way many of us convey to a judgmental world that we are worth caring about.

I get treated completely differently at a $20 hair salon if I’m dressed up or dressed down. Two totally different experiences. I get treated differently at the doctor’s office, and at the emergency room. I can’t go to the ER in sweatpants, because I’ll get shittier treatment. In an emergency, I have to worry if I am dressed up enough to prove that I deserve respect and care.
