I'm a demibisexual that's into philosophy, MtG, psychology, roleplaying, and exploring literary narrative (from books, plays, movies, poems, and video games). If there's anything I'd post that you'd like to discuss, I'm completely open to talking about it with you in a calm and rational manner. Education is very important to me, whether I'm the educator or the educated.
Except for the fact my aunt DID die from lung disease she got from smoking pot, which ultimately led to her lungs filling up with fluid and her dying. This caused her leaving her twenty-one year old daughter without a mother and now her daughter is twenty-four and having to plan a wedding without her mother, will have children who won’t see their maternal grandmother, have to go through life knowing she will NEVER see her mother until she passes away. But please, go ahead and continue smoking pot and let it rot your lungs. Let your future children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren grow up without you around after you’ve died at a young age.
I’m sorry you had to face this tragedy, but this is an outlier. Even when it causes lung disease, its generally capable of treatment, and it happens to people with a predisposition to it. There’s a lot of studies that have proven this much. Marijuana has a lot of benefits over its drawbacks, and I believe its contradictory to keep it illegal and other provably more dangerous things legal.
If we weren’t fat, it would have been presumptuous and appropriative to have made this blog, so no, probably not, but there’s no reason we could not and would not have made other kinds of fat positive blogs. All of us have other kinds of activism we do, too.
Fuck off, troll.
Appropriative? I think it would have been completely fine. Thin people can recognize thin privilege. There’s nothing wrong or contradictory in making a blog educating people about thin privilege, even if you’re thin yourself. Heck, some of your submissions are even from thin people recognizing thin privilege through the way their friends or family members are treated.
