black girls with eating disorders are so important & need to be protected
because it’s believed that we don’t think about things like that, we all apparently love our “inherently” thick bodies and thickness is something we all glorify and strive to achieve
we’re too “strong” to have any kind of illness, especially not an ED
EDs among black girls are so common and are easily dismissed as “white girl stuff” and thats so destructive and harmful
There you go.
start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
literally, ignore them.
don’t invite any parts of them into your space.
Horror stories about Muslim misogyny have long been used by western patriarchs to justify imperialism abroad and sexism at home. The Guardian’s Katharine Viner reminds us about Lord Cromer, the British consul general in Egypt from 1883. Cromer believed the Egyptians were morally and culturally inferior in their treatment of women and that they should be “persuaded or forced” to become “civilised” by disposing of the veil.
"And what did this forward-thinking, feminist-sounding veil-burner do when he got home to Britain?" asks Viner. "He founded and presided over the Men’s League for Opposing Women’s Suffrage, which tried, by any means possible, to stop women getting the vote. Colonial patriarchs like Cromer … wanted merely to replace eastern misogyny with western misogyny." More than a century later, the same logic is used to imply that misogyny only matters when it isn’t being done by white men.Laurie Penny, “This isn’t ‘feminism.’ It’s Islamophobia.” (via cuddlyklaine)
