TIME FOR A FAT-POSITIVE GIVEAWAY!

Over the weekend I reached 4500 followers and it feels like a good time to thank you all with a chance to win one of three super special, body-pos prizes. First prize is your very own (signed, if you want!) copy of The Fat Body (In)visible, my short documentary film about fat activism, fatshion, and fat visibility, starring my friends Keena & Jessica. Second prize is a copy of Virgie Tovar’s Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion which features some seriously life-changing essays by some of the most amazing fatties I know (and also my essay, “Who Wears Short Shorts?”). Third prize is your very own bottle of Plump’s Riots Not Diets, the robin’s egg blue polish specially formulated by Plump for this very blog.

All you have to do to enter is reblog this post with all its original text, and three winners will be picked at random on Saturday, June 15th at 12 pm PST. The giveaway is open to international folks, and each reblog counts as one entry (but don’t be spammy, that’s rude!). <3

Good luck to everyone who enters, and thanks to all of you for your continued support and love!

xo,
Margitte

do you ever get into one of those situations where you’re like “I need to stop hating this particular person it’s not going to get me anywhere I’m just going to grow up and move on with my life” but then they do the tiniest thing to piss you off and then you’re like “nope fuck you right off I want to throw you off a bridge”

all. the. time.

Hi babes.  I’m sorry that I haven’t been super active on Sex+ lately.  It makes me want to kick myself.  I am going through some weirdness that I’m sure some of you can relate to.  In my last video, I mentioned how in the past I had struggled with depression and found my way out by focusing on my passions.  This was part of a bigger story that I didn’t really feel like drawing.

Read this about depression, OK? It&#8217;s hard to explain with the words, but she does a good job.

Truncated transcript from today’s SCOTUS argument

This thing is good for LOLs. Actually from yesterday’s arg.

courtneymilan:

For those of you who don’t want to read the transcript of the oral argument in Hollingsworth v. Perry, which is all of 82 pages long, or whose heads exploded when you tried to read it, I’ve written a helpful summary. It’s available below the jump.

This summary is still fairly long, but it’s shorter and I’ve worked to make things as accessible as possible to those without legal training.

As a result, there are some places where I might have oversimplified the legal argument. My summarizing might be partially colored by my personal viewpoints, but this is basically what happened, plus or minus the aliens eating children.
