Can you explain more about why you're against spanking? I agree, I'd just like to hear what you have to say.
- it is hurting someone
- your child, specifically, who should not be hurt by you of all people
- it doesnt work in the long term
- it develops trust issues
- it is reliant on fear, and teaches them to be afraid instead of actually learning what they did and how to self-discipline (i.e., “mommy spanked me when i tried crossing the road by myself, so i shouldn’t do it in front of her so i don’t get spanked” instead of “mommy told me i could get hurt if i cross the road by myself, so i won’t do it”)
- it asserts the ideology of stronger = right, and that because someone hurts you they are correct
- it shows that violence solves issues, which causes your child not only to normalize violence, but to partake in it
- it disregards bodily autonomy (as in people not touching you without your consent)
- it hurts their self-esteem, as well as affects their mental health, and their intelligence
- it becomes a gateway to harsher abuse due to desensitization
- it creates detachment of the parent/child bond
- it normalizes degrading and harmful behavior on the parent’s end
- it continues on the cycle of abuse
- it’s just overall shitty don’t hit someone, especially not someone who is smaller than you, defenseless, and VERY easily affected by it ok just don’t
You have to much blush on. Your cheeks look like your favorite food, hams.
You look beautiful. This cunt making negative comments is just so unhappy thst life has hurt them that they are attempting to throw weak ass shade at your beautiful face.
Thanks babe 😘 And really, too much blush?? What next, eye lashes too long? Lips too glossy? Eye liner too winged? That’s pretty much a compliment. Maybe I’ll take their makeup advice more seriously after they’ve been hired numerous times to do wedding and prom makeup, like I have.
Also, 0/10 for the poor attempt at fat shaming. You’d think that after they’ve spent months stalking my blog they’d realize my religion and that hello, I’ve never even tried ham. But hurr hurr, anything to fat shame.

Even as a body acceptance activist, I’m still making progress in my own journey. I wore jeans today and I rocked ‘em! I can’t remember the last time I wore jeans… I bought my first pair when I was 15 or 16 because my family disapproved of my wearing them. They said jeans looked bad on ‘plus size people’. And even though I’ve worn them here and there during college, I never felt too comfortable in them. But I bought some 20W petite jeans today and felt super cute in them 👖😄
For all the teachers out there: did you ever have one class that was just so awesome, such a wonderful group, that you felt you would never have a group of kids you loved as much as that one? Because honestly idk how I’m gonna top the class that I have right now.
Every year I always make plans to do something fun for Halloween but they always fall through. This year has to be different tho!! My hubby doesn’t celebrate Halloween which means I have to either go by myself (too scary) or take a gf with me. But c’mon I live close to both SF and Sac and there are so many events and parties I could go to! 😭
I just won 2 tickets to the Gravediggers Halloween Ball in Sacramento!!! 🎃👻
At an intersection today I had a male hitchhiker become so irate at me for not giving him a ride that he slammed his fist on the hood of my vehicle. Male entitlement is believing that you are owed a ride, despite the obvious risks this poses to a lone female driver.
Also I’m 100 followers away from 10K so I feel like I should do a giveaway of some sort! If you have ideas of what I could include in the giveaway, comment reblog or send a message :)
Let’s be clear on something. The fat kid’s problem isn’t being fat. It’s being HATED for being fat. It’s being targeted by everything from bullies and parents (perhaps unwittingly, because yeah, it was done to me and I was a fat kid) doing abusive things to him to get him thin to the First Lady spearheading a campaign that pushes forward the agenda to increase stigma against fat children by making sure they get labeled as being unhealthy right off the bat and assumed to be eating nothing but “junk food”.
And all the while, any thin kids who may be eating nothing but “junk food” are handwaved away, because if they’re thin they must be healthy and don’t need any nutritional intervention, right? Any fat kids who are actually getting only occasional meals and live in poverty and have dire food insecurity in their lives are assumed not even to exist or even told it might be good for them to miss meals because they’re fat.
plot twist: fat girls get the respect, representation, and clothing options they deserve
