The Persian Ceiling

The world is a ceiling of refracted light.

Twenty-four-year-old college graduate, Boston native, world history major, bit of an Anglophile. The world, it fascinates me.

This blog is mostly me posting fandom-related nonsense (BBC's Sherlock, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, etc) with some other things tossed in for fun, like health and fitness (primarily posted to my Fitblr). I really like lots of things, please supply me with more things to love!

What about losing weight? If you got thin you would love your body and clothes will look good on you.

I wasn’t even going to answer this, since it doesn’t even deserve to be posted, but I’ve got to make this public.

First of all, if you really feel such conviction in this belief, why are you on anon? Hint: it’s probably because you realize you’re being a total asshole and know people would respond directly to you. And, of course, you don’t want to deal with any repercussions. Nice. Real nice.

Moving on, your commentary makes no sense. You think thin people are happier with their bodies? Like they don’t struggle, too? The only reason they MAY struggle less is because of societal bullshit and the fact that “skinny” (as opposed to “fat”) is not a dirty word. But society wants EVERYONE to feel shitty about something about their body, otherwise how could they sell us shit?

Also, my clothes looks just fine on me already. Great, even. But even if it didn’t, my worth isn’t based off of what I look like, nor how my clothes looks. I could wear a fucking garbage bag every day and STILL have worth. Life isn’t about being the most socially-acceptable-looking or whatever. So fuck that notion, and fuck you for perpetuating it. 

Finally, I would much rather love my fat body than hate myself into being skinny. I will not hate my body just because you or anyone else tells me to. I am trying to treat my body and mind better, hopefully by eating healthier (more whole foods and whatnot), and maybe I’ll lose weight because of that. But that’s not my goal, and I won’t care either way. I just want to feel better, treat my body with more respect and stop hating it for no reason.

TL;DR: Kindly fuck off with your broken record bullshit. I’ll love myself and my body no matter what my weight, and you can go fuck yourself for trying to make me feel otherwise.

My little sister is the best. Go check out her body-positive blog and show her some support.

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey
