"Realize that anyone who tries to put you down about your appearance is assuming that it is your job to please them visually. Once you realize that it isn’t your job to be visually pleasing to anyone, ever, it becomes very hard for anyone to make you feel bad about yourself."
You can’t pick and choose what parts of feminism you want. You can’t support your queer sisters but not your trans sisters. You can’t support your fat sisters but not your sisters of colour. Being a feminist means creating a positive and equal space for women. The second you start excluding women based on which characteristics you do or do not find appealing you have defeated the whole point of being a feminist.

I get to meet William Shatner and Stan Lee this weekend.
I think I might have Stan Lee sign the Mjolnir that Tay’s bf Luke made for me. And get a photo op with him too.
And of course: Shatner I’ll probably have a photo op and him signing that. And maybe bring my vintage Star Fleet Medical Guide that I found at a yard sale a few years ago.
