i love this so much
actually i think equating an eating disorder with sucking a cock and swallowing sperm for a man’s satisfaction is REALLY WRONG AND FUCKED UP.
My stomach drops each time I see this stupid image. The message is so incredibly demeaning. I imagine a man patting a girl’s chin when she forces down her food and saying “that’s a good girl.” Anyone who has suffered with disordered eating can tell you how harmful this is. It’s disgustingly, overtly sexual and degrading. Fuck this stupid picture
ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO ADD:
I have a history with eating disorders and during a time when I was avoiding food/meals I was dating a guy and I confided in him the problem I was having. He invited me to his house for a meal and he told his father I wasn’t eating and they both forced me to eat my entire meal in front of them. His father said “eat the whole thing” and they both watched as I ate a meal and tried not to cry
how aren’t there more reblogs decrying this image (and not just reblogging because people apparently like )
[TW: Sexual Assault, rape culture, victim blaming]
His lips crushed mine, stopping my protest. He kissed me angrily, roughly, his other hand gripping tight around the back of my neck, making escape impossible. I shoved against his chest with all my strength, but he didn’t even seem to notice. His mouth was soft, despite the anger, his lips molding to mine in a warm, unfamiliar way.
I grabbed at his face, trying to push it away, failing again. He seemed to notice this time, though, and it aggravated him. His lips forced mine open, and I could feel his hot breath in my mouth.
Acting on instinct, I let my hands drop to my side, and shut down. I opened my eyes and didn’t fight, didn’t feel… just waited for him to stop.
Lifetime rate of rape /attempted rape for women by race:1
- All women: 17.6%
- White women: 17.7%
- Black women: 18.8%
- Asian Pacific Islander women: 6.8%
- American Indian/Alaskan women: 34.1%
- Mixed race women: 24.4%
The rate of rape for indigenous women is just horrifying. This is proooobbbably why you shouldn’t be sexualizing their native dress and wearing it as a Halloween costume. It’s a fucking spit in the face.
