Health at Every Size is changing and Drs. Linda Bacon HAES and Lucy Aphramor are leading the charge with a brand new book that emphasizes the importance of tackling the social determinants of health as essential to public health. At the same time, I raise concerns that HAES may be drifting from its core strengths.

If you’re a fat actress, the pressure to conform is predictably intense. Elm explores the causes and effects of plus-sized actresses who do, and don’t, subjugate their bodies to the Hollywood ideal.

Wait, but isn’t this cultural appropriation….???

The hypocrisy on this site astounds me.

Dude. They were in Dubai. They didn’t arrive in Kanduras, they were given by the Crown Prince when they arrived and only wore them once. Check the rest of the pictures

White Man from San Diego Waves Gun Around Small Children In Confrontation With Police and Is Taken Into Custody Alive.  

This white man walked towards the police with a gun pointed at them and they spend half an hour talking to him before they shoot him one time. If he had been a black man, they would’ve shot him dead. Before you police apologists claim this man has a history of mental illness (he does) that’s why the police was lenient,  Ezell Ford, a mentally ill black man, was recently killed by the LAPD. 

*sips tea*

wait, i….

And let’s not forget Kajieme Powell, the man shot near Ferguson who was mentally ill, but who police shot because they claimed he had a knife, despite video of the incident that contradicts their claims.

PLEASE reblog for this up and coming Actress

I think what truly injures is the constant degradation. It’s the lowest expectations , expecting the absolute worst as it relates to black people. By law enforcement, by the press, by prevailing society’s “conventional wisdom” . It’s these confirmation biases that lead to these crude assumptions and treatment. Society has proven time and time again that it still expects the absolute worst from black people and then conforms to have those assumptions met in any way it can.

This is an absolutely heartbreaking case of police brutality. A 22 year old black man with down syndrome was beaten by the police for the bulge in his pants. That bulge turned out to be his colostomy bag. They ripped the bag off his body. This was an unprovoked attack. No one is safe out here.

Reblogging with updated link. The old one was dead.

Remember the case of 22 year old Gilberto Powell.

From a medical perspective this is horrifying, beyond the brutality he could’ve died from infection from a leak or trauma to his stoma.
