To follow up with my Ending Sexual Violence post I wanted to share this. I came across an article from Oct 22, 2017, on Buzzfeed that I thought was fucking fantastic. I had to share it with all of you here. The premise of this post was letting the world know they may be part … Continue reading It Counts As Harassment
I am reblogging a post from a friend of mine from The Shitty Housewife. I am not ready to share my experiences, but I appreciate other men and women who are willing to share. I love how open Jan is about her experiences and her way with words. I completely agree with her when she … Continue reading Me Too.
Leave our President alone people. There's absolutely no evidence out there that Trump colluded with the Russians except for the Manafort thing, and the Flynn thing, and the Roger Stone thing, and the Cohen thing, and the Kushner thing, and the Carter Page thing, and the Jeff Sessions things, and the Wilbur Ross thing, and … Continue reading Leave our President Alone…

I had been putting off writing this post for about a month and a half.
National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.
Feb 26-March 4
I had been dreading writing this post because, obviously BBB is an eating disorder recovery blog, so I feel kinda…obligated…to address the topic, but honestly, I’m kinda luke warm on the whole “awareness” thing.
It just seems a little…glorifying if you ask me. And I have a problem with that. Don’t throw around photos of healthy-yet-slightly-thin girls in stock photos pretending to be sad, or even worse, smiling and holding a piece of pizza, and gloat that you’re raising “awareness” or fighting the stigma. The theme: “It’s time to talk about it…” that’s borderline insulting.
Why don’t you ask the mother whose daughter died of heart failure due to anorexia, or my mother when I was 78 pounds and she was checking on…

"Demagogues survive politically by fostering hatred, especially against minorities. They try to divide people up by their religion, country of origin or the color of their skin. By temporarily barring all immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries and giving preference to Christian refugees, Trump is doubling down on the hateful rhetoric he used during his campaign. … Continue reading History Repeating Itself
Here is another great article, sent to me by a friend from home. I can not agree more with what she has to say. So from me to all the men and women who fought for me and my rights, thank you. And thank you, Brittany Fuhs, for sharing this with me. This post is from … Continue reading You Are Not Equal. I’m Sorry.
Courtney Hood wrote an incredible article that I had to share with you. Thank you so much, Courtney, for sharing this with the world. I couldn't agree more, but I could never put it so eloquently. ❤ You can find her blog here. "To those participating in the March For Life: First of all, good for … Continue reading You Don’t March For Life
I think this woman’s ideas on feminism are ones the world needs to hear. After I read this I took a step back and looked at my own life and ideals. I looked at what I thought it meant to be a feminist, seeing as how I am a white female. Like Alyssa says, “‘white feminism’ isn’t feminism at all.”
Please, take a few minutes to read her post and let me know what you think about her ideas on intersectional feminism. ❤
I consider myself to be an intersectional feminist. I work to look as aspects of feminism from more than my own perspective. For reference I am a teenage, white, middle class, cisgender, chronically ill, lesbian. I have a lot of privilege, and I try my best to always be aware of it, and use it to help others.
Feminism is for everyone, plain and simple. If you want to hear more about why I identify as a feminist, read this. There is a problem with white women practicing something that has been coined as ,”white feminism.” Essentially white feminism, is believing in feminist values, while only looking through the perspective of being straight, white, female, and cisgender. So “white feminism” isn’t feminism at all.
I can pretty easily see the perspective of other queer women, because I am queer woman. I’m aware of the problems our community faces, because not only am I a…
