My name's Annelise, Elly, Peter, and many other things. I'm 18 from Long Island. This blog will mainly consist of the following: Younha, feminism, complete randomness, and the occasional pictures of myself. I can be shy, but I love to talk. :) And if I say or reblog anything offensive, please call my attention to it and I will fix the issue.
Bless her and the nice people in this world. EVERY PERSON WATCH THIS!

I had posted this on my Facebook after I saw it on youtube…I walked downstairs and saw my dad watching it. He was crying because he and I both went through shit like this. He knows how I was always hurt by shit like this.
Read her article in glamour . She is beautiful and strong ! Proud of her!
"Poor nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle do cause health problems, in people of all sizes. This is why it’s so fucking crucial to separate the concept of “obesity” from “eating crap and not exercising.” The two are simply not synonymous — not even close — and it’s not only incredibly offensive but dangerous for thin people to keep pretending that they are. There are thin people who eat crap and don’t exercise — and are thus putting their health at risk — and there are fat people who treat their bodies very well but remain fat. Really truly."
I’ve always loved Raven. I liked her better when she was heavier. I keep trying to show my 4 year old sister “That’s So Raven” because she has darker skin than me (she has a different father) and all the other shows she watches feature stick-thin white girls. I want my sister to grow up without that pressure; without feeling like you should look like the people on TV. One day, she even asked my older sister, “When am I going to be your color?” She’s young; she doesn’t understand all of the natural differences yet. I struggled with self-image as I was growing up and I don’t want her to feel the same thing I did.
Please, everyone who thinks being “fat” is “ugly,” listen:
It’s NOT. Be proud of what you have, and stop thinking that “skinny girls” are beautiful. Everyone can be beautiful. The way to start is to first EMBRACE YOURSELF AS YOU ARE. Confidence is way more sexier than just being thin. I’m not putting down thin girls, I’m just defending the people who actually get put down most of the time by all the various forms of media. There ARE people who will like you, and it won’t be “because you’re fat.” I know plenty of people who like women (and men) of all sizes because of their confidence and comfort with their appearance. So, please. Stop worrying. Stop hating.
