I'm a complete socially awkward dork, a political liberal, an unapologetic fat chick, and a congenital amputee. I am both more and less than what you think i am.
I also am in recovery from a particularly annoying type of breast cancer, so being the tumblr-obsessed person that I am I also started a blog about that here: cancerrific.tumblr.com
This blog is mostly about random things I find amusing, but there is a political side to me that slips out now and then. Mostly, however, I hang out on tumblr to escape from reality, not to analyze it.
I was born in 1973 so I am older than most people on tumblr. Still, even with all of the serious crap going on in my life I do have a bit of a fangirl in me (Miyavi and BigBang have been the primary focus of this in recent years- see my Big Bang related tumblr at topistop.tumblr.com).
I don't know, this blog is super unfocused and all over the place, but hey it's just like me haha.
Asks are always appreciated!
Netflix’s captions on “Spaced” are a little… off
What he actually said was “We’re paintballing later on”
[Image: Three photos. The first shows Laverne Cox, a beautiful Black trans woman with long light colored hair seated, head tilted, across from CeCe McDonald, a beautiful Black trans woman seen from behind, as they speak. The second photo is a shot of a row of prison cells. The third is a picture of CeCe McDonald speaking with the back of Laverne Cox shown.]
FREE CECE, the new documentary with Laverne Cox, explores the roles race, class and gender played in CeCe McDonald’s case. McDonald’s claim of self defense was rejected by Hennepin County prosecutors. The documentary explores the implications of CeCe’s story as a survivor, housing trans women in male prisons, and the practice of keeping trans women in solitary confinement.

Anonymous submitted: Hi Yeti, I've been following your blog for a long time and I've always really liked your views and morals and agreed with them- however, my parents were both "dumb hippie"s an neither I nor both my sisters were immunised and out of the three of us maybe one will get a cold every two years. We've got plenty of family and friends who weren't immunised either and all of them have much better immune systems than friends who were. So poo you. Don't be rude.
I respect every person’s decision to do what they want with their own bodies, but here’s how people who decide not to participate in immunizations kill people for real:
Science-based medicine wiped out smallpox using vaccines. Smallpox, let me remind you, used to kill 400,000 Europeans PER YEAR! That’s all American gun deaths PLUS all American car deaths TIMES FIVE. So we got rid of that motherfather. With science. No big deal.
Measles, not quite the killer that Smallpox was, but we were on our way to eliminating it. Also with science. Using vaccines. Now, measles is coming back. That’s like 400 - 500 kids a year dying and 1000 people per year becoming disabled for life because hippies don’t want to vaccinate their kids.
You and your friends are healthy? That’s wonderful. I cannot tell you how happy I am for you and your friends. However, that’s not how vaccines work. You and your friends could probably all get measles and be fine a week later. No big deal. You know who it is a big deal to, though? The baby you accidentally gave measles to when you didn’t know you were contagious yet. And the old lady on the bus who was unfortunate enough to be inhaling oxygen right at the time you coughed.
They’re dead now. They’re dead forever because of your hippie parents.
Healthy people need to be vaccinated against diseases we have vaccinations for because some people are not healthy and those diseases will kill them.
it’s funny how liberals talk about legalizing pot in the sense of “why not/it’s like alcohol/this old lady with cancer could use a good painkiller” and never say “hey were putting thousands of black youth behind bars over this and it’s used to target black communities…
This is a life-size pre-cast clay sculpture of a naked fat woman. The model is Julie Srika. The sculptor is Ramon Sierra. I think it’s beautiful and important. Breathtaking, even. Two days ago I shared it on Facebook, with the permission of both the model and the artist. Many people responded to it as I did. Facebook then deleted the thread and removed the photo from the model’s account, citing it as being in violation of their “community standards.” Appeals to Facebook have yet to be answered.
I think this is a disturbing anti-art stance, particularly vexing, considering Facebook allows far more sexually suggestive photos and sanctions pages designed to promote bigotry and bullying. Yet an amazing piece of art depicting a fat woman in proud non-sexual repose must go.
So while this is not the traditional fare for Uppity Fatty, I’m posting it here so more people can see it without the small-minded interference of Facebook’s double-standards.

Dear room #6… the presence of a dreamcatcher + a plethora of crosses + a pile of globes makes me very worried.
