Let’s go back to 1945…

Let’s not… Let’s play a game called “Context Matters!”
That picture on the left, so iconic and romantic?  Yeah, that’s a sexual assault right there.  That man was a stranger, a strong stranger who grabbed a random woman on the street, and “kissed” her.  In her words:

Suddenly, I was grabbed by a sailor. It wasn’t that much of a kiss… “I felt that he was very strong. He was just holding me tight. I’m not sure about the kiss…it was just somebody celebrating. It wasn’t a romantic event.

That picture on the right, the one that looks like a man holding a woman down in the mists of a riot, her clothes disheveled as he kissed her hard?  That man is her boyfriend.  He’s comforting her.  Her real attackers are the police.  An eyewitness stated:

The girl who was knocked over landed head first on the pavement with her boyfriend landing partially on top of her. She was in visible pain, crying, but the two officers gave them a parting shove and moved on.

The left picture: an icon of sexism, male privilege, and female objectification.
The right: real love in the face of brutal state force.

Also, the man in the picture from 1945 was on a date with another woman in the background of that picture.
Way to set the standard, man.

HOLY SHIT CAN YOU NOT. 
The woman in the kiss photo, Edith Shain, does not recount the experience as a sexual assault, as a matter of fact, she said, AND I QUOTE,

“As for the picture, it says so many things — hope, love, peace and tomorrow. The end of the war was a wonderful experience, and that photo represents all those feelings.”

She also exchanged Christmas cards with him each year for a while afterwards. Until her death a couple years ago, she was on good terms with him. You do not get to make a victim out of her in order to support your cause.

Is Junk Food Really Cheaper?
The answer is NO.
The “fact” that junk food is cheaper than real food has become a reflexive part of how we explain why so many Americans are overweight, particularly those with lower incomes. I frequently read confident statements like, “when a bag of chips is cheaper than a head of broccoli …” or “it’s more affordable to feed a family of four at McDonald’s than to cook a healthy meal for them at home.”
(via sunfoundation)

this bullshit fills me with a very specific kind of rage. so, TIME TO DEBUNK!
that meal from mcdonalds takes virtually no time to acquire AND is available almost anywhere.
the second meal? that “salad” is lettuce … with nothing else, not even dressing unless its just olive oil or some milk i guess? gross.
also thats the price of each serving, not an entire loaf of bread, a bottle of olive oil, etc. that stuff adds up which means you have to have a lot of money at one time to buy it all.
that meal probably took an hour and a half to make, which is a long fucking time when you work multiple jobs or are caring for a lot of people or dont have help! seriously, if you are a single parent of three who works, is spending an hour and a half every night preparing a meal a likely option?
same with beans and rice! also, you know whats a fucking bummer? eating beans and rice every night because you are poor. ask any person who has done it and they will tell you (you can start with me).
there is a “nutrition” argument here that lacks a follow up: poor people are more likely to be doing physical labor and need more than 571 calories per meal.
you know who is less likely to know how to bake or prepare a chicken? people without access to the internet, or libraries, or who werent taught how to by their parents because their parents worked all the time. access to healthy foods is a classist issue and classism is cyclical, you fucking morons.
seriously, these sorts of infographics make me want to fucking flip tables. do you know why people don’t eat more fresh fruits and vegetables? because fresh fruits and vegetables are expensive, because they take a long time to prepare, because they dont live near a grocery store that has a decent produce section, because they dont have reliable transportation to get groceries to and from the grocery store, because they dont have the energy to plan all of the shit that is involved in making healthy, intentional, filling, balanced meals. basically: poor people get fucked, and then we get BLAMED for being lazy.
eating “healthy”, aka access to fresh fruits and vegetables, is a privilege, first, foremost, always. so fuck you new york times and your ignorant goddamn infographic.
there are SYSTEMATIC REASONS that we do not have equal access to fresh fruits and vegetables. they are very REAL problems. besides, you know, systematic poverty in america, the total mis-distribution of farm subsidies is a perfect place to start. read about that, then either get bent or start working on the actual problem.

ok I actually think this is the saddest part of the movie. Ursula is singing all about how she’s “helped” people,and shows the story of these fine folks. The boy wants to be stronger to attract the girl, and the girl wants to be thinner to attract the boy so they both sell their souls but theY WERE ALREADY IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER AND IF THEY ONLY TOLD EACH OTHER HOW THEY FELT THEY COULD HAVE BEEN TOGETHER LIKE COME ON WHYYY

Dammnnn
