These commercials would be so much better if they left them in.
Best Pope story yet?
Pope Francis has been sneaking out of the Vatican at night to serve the homeless.
The Pope for people who don’t like popes strikes again.
HE WAS ALSO A BOUNCER AT A NIGHTCLUB
Pope Francis has also shed the trappings of wealth that generally accompany his position (golden cape, ornate throne) in favor of white threads and a simple wooden chair. He’s also the first Pope to wash a woman’s feet, insisting that it’s what Jesus Christ would have done. Even if you’re not religious you can appreciate that this is a genuinely good man, and a wonderful leader of the Catholic Church.
I’m not Christian but I’ll never pass up an opportunity to reblog something about Pope Francis. I think he’s completely awesome. he actually does the things the pope SHOULD be doing, not wearing fucking golden sheets and sitting on a golden fucking throne. the man actually tries to live like Christ and that’s pretty amazing to me, since 99% of the Christians I’ve ever met don’t. four for you Pope Francis, you go Pope Francis.
HE WAS A BOUNCER WHAT
When people don’t allow you to have any fun with your own headcanons
When people don’t take responsibility for their actions after saying something that effectively hurt a bunch of peoples feelings.
Who needs PoC?!?!?!
People completely missing the original point of a piece of media.
People who say that Hans didn’t deserve to be socked in the face after gee I dunno ATTEMPTING MURDER AND TRYING TO TAKE OVER A KINGDOM
There are most certainly labels that should require strict qualifications before you can use them as an identifier. Doctor, lawyer, professor, blowfish chef. If you aren’t a Time Lord or haven’t gone to medical school, you should not be calling yourself a doctor.
And I will agree that people shouldn’t misrepresent themselves because they think it will help them fit in or seem cool. For a long time I told people I was 1/64th wombat so they would like me more and excuse my extra furry parts. But looking back, I didn’t need to be a wombat to fit in. People liked me just fine as I was.
That said, there are some labels that should not require extensive qualifications or an interrogation. I’m agnostic. Do I really have to prove that I am skeptical about the existence of a deity? Will I get my agnostic card revoked if I enjoy Jesus Christ Superstar? I own several bibles too. I’ve even read large bits of them. Whenever I stub my toe I call out the lord’s name. I also follow like 6 of the 10 commandments.
The truly offensive part of this is that if a male says they are a gamer, they are not questioned. It is just accepted. Not once have I ever had to prove myself. You don’t need to show how many hours you logged playing Call of Duty. You don’t need all the achievements in Assassin’s Creed. (I’m never going to find all those goddamn flags.) You just have to identify as male and a gamer and you’re in the club.
If you enjoy playing video games, you are a gamer. And even if you feel someone is not as gamer-y as you, it doesn’t really matter. It has no effect on your love of video games.
Women play video games. They are gamers. I know some that are quite passionate about them. They write fanfiction, create mods, and spend hours fashioning elaborate cosplay. Frankly, they put my gamer-ness to shame. But not once have they ever accused me of not being gamer enough. I think if male gamers like this fellow keep this attitude, there will be very little interaction with their lifestyle’s or actual dick.
Reminder that the Frogman is grand.
My wife worked for GameStop for seven years. This girl knows her damn games and will talk your ear off about her favorite RPGs and her opinion on shooters.
And I witnessed, on several occasions (and this is just me popping by the store real quick) men coming into the store and REFUSING to talk to her. They wouldn’t be assisted until a male associate was free. Once, they had a question about freaking POKEMON (my wife’s forever favorite) and the manager directed him to my wife because she was the resident expert. Still he refused to talk with her.
It was appalling. It was infuriating. It was wrong.
It happened far too often.

Always see “real women” posts so here’s one for the dudes.
this says so much. I wish there were more posts like this. please.
body positivity and realistic body standards are important for guys too!
Men are constantly reassured that it’s okay to oogle women and harrass them about their looks. Women rarely see sexualized images of men that are made for women.
Guys get eye candy everywhere they go. Their sexual gaze is constantly catered to. Women, at least hetero women, are rarely given the opportunity to have their sexual interest entertained. We’re told that we should be okay with having nothing to look at. That our fantasies don’t matter. That we shouldn’t ever even remotely expect to be able to eyeball a svelte man in public, only behind closed doors and heaven forbid that the man look vulnerable. So we finally get to see images that turn us on and people are like, “Hey, you can’t put that in magazines! that might hurt some little boy’s feelings!”
Men are given alternative physical images to aspire to. Women are not.
While yes, guys should be treated to body positivity too… they already are. Just watch TV or any comedy and count the number of pudgy, out of shape, male leads vs pudgy, out of shape female leads. Or the number of hairy, overweight, older men making block buster movies vs the number of hairy, overweight, older women. Now count how many times that male character has some incredibly smart, sexy wife who does everything for him. And then how many times she’s the butt of the joke when he gets hot for some woman who’s younger and thinner than she is.
Fuck, just look at the responses to women not shaving their legs vs the responses to guys not shaving off their stubble.
Name six movies about a woman above the age of forty who’s love interest is a man that’s younger than she is where the plot doesn’t revolve around her being the butt of a cougar or mom joke. Now name me six where a man over the age of forty’s love interest is a woman who’s significantly younger than he is. Bonus points for action movies where anyone in the movie makes a mention of the age difference.
How many times are male politician or CEO’s body or style of dress put into question? How many times are female’s? Or has everyone forgotten how we flip out when the president’s wife gets a new hair cut? Or how Hillary Clinton had to have a FUCKING MAKE OVER before the news agencies took her seriously? How many times was her daughter raked over the coals for looking like an average teenager?
What’s more, I’ve never heard any of my female friends or my mother and her female friends saying, “Why can’t my 50 year old husband get a six pack like that?” What I USUALLY here is “I wish my husband would get a nice hair cut.” or “I wish he’d wear some nicer clothes that actually fit him.”
But what i hear overhear men saying all time is, “No fat chicks!” or “I wish my wife had bigger boobs.”
I know a woman who’s husband threatened to leave her if she didn’t get a face lift and a boob job- she was so upset that she did it. She felt disgusting every day because she wasn’t a size six and he expected her to be a size six after bearing him four kids. My own uncle said if his wife got overweight that he’d drag her behind a car until she lost weight. These aren’t even “bad guys”! They seem like perfectly nice men when you meet them! But they’re taught from the moment they’re kids that all women need to be a certain body type to be worthy of any attention.
Men are told through our culture’s stories and media that a woman will still love them unconditionally and throw themselves at them if they’re fat, old, balding, or an asshole, while women are told that if they’re pushy, fat, old or wearing out of style clothes that they aren’t even worth mentioning.
I was just going to bold the good parts , so I bolded the whole thing lol.A man can be a derange, fat, narcissistic, corrupt, immoral, balding, fugly criminal and still be famous, successful, idolized and “get the girl” and a “trophy wife”. Women and girls have to walk on eggshells their whole lives and torture their bodies for “perfection”, be silent, submissive, sexy, smile, giggle, breed heirs, be virtuous, über-feminine, the “perfect wife and mother”, dumb themselves down, never get angry and just be a masochistic doll. And throw some racialized misogyny, colorism and orientalist fetishes in there for “added flavor”.
why are you doing this? you took a post about about positive body image for men and decided to cover it in aggressive antagonistic feminism. And don’t get me wrong, i love feminism, it’s great, i need it just as much as every other oppressed female in our society, but this is just sort of unnecessary.
greater levels of suffering do not negate the other peoples’ pain. yeah, women suffer far more when it comes to sexualization, and standards of beauty and behavior but that doesn’t mean that men don’t as well and it certainly doesn’t mean they don’t have a right to express it. doing this is antagonism which won’t create a feeling of empathy and equality but an equal feeling of antagonism.
i’ve made an amazing friend in beth. she is bright light in my life, and our RP means the world to me~
